Aang deals with cultural appropriation - (x)

People need to stop reblogging this without the rest of the comic :^)

Part 1: Aang has a negative reaction to people who mistakenly hurt his feelings but had good intentions.

Part 2: Aang calms down and acknowledges that those people’s intentions were good and instead of being upset offers to educate and inform those people and SHARES his culture.

Good message there.

It sucks that Anita Sarkeesian is more influential than any of these women in the game industry.

oh damn, ayako saso is part of the street fighter EX music team

shout-outs to the mastermind of battle fantasia

and there are even more.

The best part of all is how many of these women worked on games Anita has specifically bitched about, and especially the fact that God of War, one of the most testosterone-pumped killfests ever, is written by a woman, and a woman designed Bayonetta, a character who Anita seems convinced could only have sprung from the mind of a potential rapist male who hates women. And on top of this, a woman co-designed the Skullgirls characters, Skullgirls being something briefly touched upon via showing Cerebella in a “Look at all these awesome women I’m pretending are nothing but weak, pathetic, oppressed eye candy” montage in the very first part of Tropes vs Women in Video Games.

And yet, according to Anita, these women and many others don’t fucking exist, and everyone, even the gaming industry, buys it.

Realistic 

1)  The day my sister got back from the hospital after a suicide attempt. I didnt let go for about an hour.

2) Kid just found out his brother was shot and killed.

3) A Russian war veteran kneels beside the tank he spent the war in, now a monument.

4) Man sobbing at animal shelter. After being jailed briefly and his dog Buzz Lightyear impounded he couldn’t afford the $400 to get his pet back.

5) A firefighter gives water to a koala during the devastating Black Saturday bushfires that burned across Victoria, Australia, in 2009.

6) Alcoholic father with his son

7) Robert Peraza pauses at his son’s name on the 9/11 Memorial during the tenth anniversary ceremonies at the site of the World Trade Center.

8) Greg Cook hugs his dog Coco after finding her inside his destroyed home in Alabama following the Tornado in March, 2012

9) After two double lung transplants and years of battling cystic fibrosis, my good friend passed away last Saturday. This was one of the last pics taken with his mother.

These are probably some of the most powerful pictures I’ve ever seen and some hit close to home.
