|What episode of american dad was that?|
"can i be frank with you?" the one where francine disguises herself as a guy to be with stan and steve and co join "boys 12" which is where the "i have the penis of a man!" feminine-looking person is
i can really only assume the joke was about “girls who wants to be boys” which… probably means trans guys
annoying conflict between “i think i’m sexually attracted to steve smith” and “i’m pretty sure that character they made fun of for being a ‘girl’ saying ‘i’m a man’ was supposed to be ftm and now i’m really offended”
thank you american dad you make my feelings confused.
you are still v attractive
goddamn mik is gorgeous
yes she is
someone should date her
does anyone else have an inexplicably attractive best friend that’s somehow still single
it’s really weird

I feel like people who want to be trans for the soul purpose of ending gender roles and shit are getting that confused with gender noncomformity. Like, imagine the awareness if there were more open masculine women and open feminine men but aren’t transgender. That’s a huge advertisement for rights like dude imagine females walking around in male Tux’s!!! And more dudes in dresses! And that normalized!!! That’s a real issue and needs more support.
And I’m sorry for the exclamations I have no other way to express my excitement for this idea
World History in a nutshell.
This is literally the best fucking metaphor for World History and you cannot tell me otherwise.
Except no, this is totally WRONG.
The Air Nomads are based on Tibetian monks, as well as other cultures with concepts of Buddhism. This is reflected in the practice of shaving their heads, meditation, and vegetarianism. Aang’s clothes are very similar to that of the Shaolin monks. Even the location and architecture of the air temples resembles those found in Tibet.
The Fire Nation is inspired by the government and politics of Imperialist and Maoist China (as well as Imperial Japan). There was a little thing called Free Tibet a few years back which was quite in vogue with you psuedo-social-justice types. Do you remember what that was about? In 1951, China invaded Tibet and claimed sovereignty over them. As with most wars, depending on whose views you share, stories can differ. The Chinese (*cough*fire nation*cough*) claim to have reduced taxes, unemployment and built schools. However they achieved this through extortion, torture, murder, and oppression of the Tibetan culture. Thus, Avatar’s Hundred Year War.
The Water tribes are based on Inuit people. This one is really obvious. They share the same visual coding of colour, use furs in the clothing, live in polar regions in igloos and yurts, and rely on fishing as their primary food source.
The Earth Kingdom is a mixing pot of various Asiatic cultures including China, India, Korea, Thailand and Japan. Each city/town will reflect some of these more strongly than the others.
If you agree with the labelling in the above gifset, you’ve either completely missed the point of Avatar, or just don’t give a fuck about actual World History or anything outside of what’s popular with tumblr “social justice”. You all harp on about needing more representation in the media but as soon as you’re given something as beautiful as Avatar, with a huge diversity of non-Eurocentric cultures, you completely misconstrue it. What you’ve done is erased the importance of all these individual (and indigenous) cultures, and replaced it with your own (anti-white) political agenda.
(And honestly, who uses umbrella labels like “asians” and “white people”. That’s ignorant and racist as fuck)
Bless Tumblr user barrelsofdwarrows for the above and for calling people out on their narrow-minded bullshit.
That was excellent.
I actually got so mad when I saw the gifset, its quite obvious the air nomads are based off of Shaolin monks and water tribe after Inuit.
