/PEOPLE WHO WEAR HUGE SHIRTS THAT ARE WAY TOO BIG ON THEM HAVE MASTERED THE ART OF CUTE
"you’re not asian! you’re indian/pakistani/bengali/other"
bruh does the asian map look like this to you:
it’s not disrespectful for all current evens but for stuff like what’s going on in the Ukraine it is for several reasons.
For one it’s too soon. It’s also just out of respect for not only the people in Ukraine right now but people who have relatives and friends and might not be able to get a hold of them.
And yes I understand that there is a way you can do fanart/ fics about this in a respectful manor but this fandom has a bad reputation of using events like this to do very disrespectful smut and humor and you can’t really say “you can do something while someone else can’t” not to mention people who will do things just for the notes.
and lastly you don’t have to do hetallia themed things to show how you feel about evens or topics like this.
Don’t answer my question -_-
I still don’t undestand WHY THE FUCK be soon is a problem?
And about the people envolved, I still don’t undestand why demonstrat my support or feelings is out of respect for then. Or just ‘talk’ about the tropic in art form.
And where the heck the bad reputation of a fandom is reazon for don’t do a good thing in this fandom?
“Don’t have to do hetallia themed things”
But if I wat to in Hetalia style?
Why in hetalia style is ofensive - or any adjetive - but a cartoon, countryball, meme, fotomanipulation or other way is not?
It trivializes the conflict, and changes it from real people struggling to survive to character development and more than likely angst. By making it Hetalia, you make it about the character, and not the actual people facing oppression and people are dying.
We’re getting a bad reputation because when something like this happens, there’s always someone that makes it about the Hetalia character where this uprising/disaster/war/whatever. Even if it is used to raise awareness in the community, it will always come off as offensive no matter how well it was meant to be.
Think of how bad it was when the Supernatural fandom said that that crying angel statue on that grave stone was like “Cas crying over Dean” or whatever and the group of Whovians started making Weeping Angel jokes when in reality, crying angel statues on graves are used for people that committed suicide. Imagine that, but on a larger scale. That’s what putting a civil uprising through the medium of Hetalia.
It’s a case of “there’s a time and a place for everything”. Hetalia should only deal with current events like ” Relations between Japan and England at an all time high” or “small town German man saves dog from river” and should shy away from events like “school shooting in Colorado” and “Civil Uprising in Italy”.
I hope that clears things up a bit and it doesn’t come across as rude. :)
It’s stuff like these that makes the old saying “timing is everything” very relevant.
Current events, especially as current as the ongoing crises in Ukraine, Syria, Venezuela and elsewhere in the world, are still happening. And the thing about these crises is that people have died and livelihoods are being severely disrupted as we speak. It’s too soon to use these events as fodder for anything involving anime or Hetalia for the simple reason that these events are just not something to turn into something anime. If the people involved in these events aren’t even given the time that they need to recover and evaluate what had happened in their history; it’s not fandom’s place to take that privilege away from them just because we feel the need to express our opinions on the issue. And we don’t get a say on the matter either, because it was never about the fandom in the first place. Until these conflicts have been studied and understood, we just can’t take ownership of these events. The word “trivialize” has been mentioned, but more to the point, the very idea of even expressing one’s opinion about these unfolding events through anime is quite inappropriate. And that’s the difference between using current events vs historical events as fandom inspiration: the dust has not settled yet.
Give it some more time; the whole world needs to think long and hard about why these things are happening simultaneously, and we all need to pull together to help the people that are hurting. If you want to raise awareness about what is going on, just tell people. But don’t use [Hetalia] fandom works to do it, because it’s too early in the game, it diminishes the meaning of the conflict, and it’s just plain insensitive.
I just want for aph France and aph England to kiss all the time. Is that too much to ask? ;u;
Like innocent kisses. Chaste kisses. HuNGRY kisses. Tired kisses. ANGRY kisses. Gay kisses. Teasing kisses. Sad kisses. Crying kisses. Happy kisses. Bruising kisses. Playful kisses. Stubborn kisses. Just kissing in general, you feel?
How I feel about religion. God should be presented as what he is, love and kindness. Stop using his name to justify your racism, homo phobia and sexesim
Not gonna lie, this is pretty cute.
Love and Kindness. That’s all what He is.
Something that a lot of people need to get through their heads. It’s so simple, geez.
