"The sorceries of Oolacile differ from the magic of thine age. It is difficult to explain… Oolacile sorceries are, what doth one say? They are somewhat… of an approximation. Thine sorceries are more straight forward, negating all but thy self. Dost thou not find some fascination in these discrepancies?”
Yes I do
"Bioware do not in fact unduly promote the romance and sex aspects of their games"
In this African tribe, when someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them.
For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done.
The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as a good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness.
But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes.
The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help.
They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
NABAJYOTISAIKIA, is a compliment used in South Africa and means: “I respect you, I cherish you. You matter to me.” In response, people say SHIKOBA, which is: “So, I exist for you.”
WHY ISN’T THIS A THING IN ALL CULTURES
some day I’m going to create a bingo card for these kinds of posts.
- vague mention of “Africa” and “African tribe” with no actual names of tribes, countries, or languages, because Africa is a country and everyone there is exactly the same obv: check.
- picture of smiling/emotional black people taken completely out of context: check.
- made-up “African” words with deep meanings: check.
- "noble savage" grossness out the wazoo: check.
this photo is a picture of Ghanaian boys playing soccer from Amen: Grassroots Football.
Initial googling says that Shikoba means “feather” in Choctaw, which would mean OP isn’t even on the right damn continent.
(When I look at Choctaw-English dictionaries, though, shikoba doesn’t show up at all; the word for feather seems to be “híshi.” “Shikobli” is a verb meaning “to put on a plume” so maybe there’s some conjugation or gerund going on here? I’d welcome any corrections from actual Choctaw speakers.)
Nabajyoti Saikia is someone’s name. OP just straight-up stole some poor Indian cement chemist’s name for their colonialist hippie bullshit.
Look at this dude. He didn’t spend years of his life writing a goddamn textbook on waste management strategies so that you could use his name to prop up this crock of shit. He’s disappointed in you. Do better.
This is some disgusting orientalistic bullshit, my god.
It’s important for any of our readers to understand the breadth and depth of completely average people on tumblr or twitter or facebook or social media or blogs or websites who have a pathological obsession with misinforming the rest of us, which then requires someone to come out and research their completely mythological bullshit claims, and waste everyone’s time in the process proving something untrue that was untrue to start with.
Realize the level of deception we have to combat every single day.
And I don’t mean INFOWARS CONSPIRACIES THE JEWS PALESTINIANS shit. Ignore all of that shit on its own, because that’s another part of the syndrome itself.
Just stop, look, and realize. Just for a second.
And before someone says “but The Witcher has sex scenes and nudity”, I’ll just say I have never seen a single ad, press release, interview or any other kind of marketing material that points out to how many people the player can have sex with.
Because only teen girls confidence can be destroyed during puberty of course
but it does seem that every five minutes there’s a new campaign about raising the self esteem of little girls/adolesent girls/young women
but if anyone tries to make the same campaign about boys or young men instead, feminists start screeching RAPE CULTURE and MRA PISSBABIES WHAT PROBLEMS DO THEY HAVE and start burning books and racing to find the nearest fire alarm
This is an Advertising campaign by Always.
Designed to make you by their products by being “The company that cares and u poor grills”
They’re stating the obvious and selling you shit.
GG Guys, GG
Oh yeah just like that Dove “real beauty” campaign that totally wasn’t about getting insecure women to buy overpriced face goop
This is scripted and I don’t believe it for a second. Even if it wasn’t scripted, how many women gave an answer that contradicted their narrative? And how many girls would’ve done the same?
And, given that I know women can be violent, clearly this isn’t so much a “women can’t run or fight” it is a stereotype. Because “fight like a girl” is a stereotypical but if I want to fucking hit you, I’m not slapping you like a weakling, I’m punching you.
A little girl punched the air real hard on an ad campaign.
PATRIARCHY FUCKING DESTROIED.
adult’s movies: sex, explosions, yelling, cheap love story
kid’s movies: deep heart-wrenching death, moments where you question your own values, humor, adult jokes splashed in, the secret to the entire universe, sometimes explosions too
The bi, pan and poly people have claimed Steve Rogers.
if you dont have the talent to write your own characters
STEAL SOMEONE ELSE’S AND PROJECT YOUR SHITTY HEADCANONS ONTO THEM
God, people on Tumblr are just so fucking weird.
Dragon’s Crown has sold 940,000 copies and became Vanillaware’s best seller.
This is how much the controversy about a fictional character’s breasts has affected it. This is how effective all those articles calling the creators sexist was. This is how effective all the people whinning about were.
This is how powerless SJW’s really are.
