Yet another well known youtube star jumps on the appropriation bandwagon. Idgi, her sister in law Michelle Phan already appropriated mexican culture, why the hell would she do this now??? Ugh. My culture is not a halloween costume -___-
you do fucking realize that sugar skulls ARE a costume and there is no cultural appropriation to people wearing something that was meant to be a costume to begin with…right? it’s called la catrina and it mocks lower class people trying to dress like high class europeans….its like dressing up like a tourist with a big camera and a sun hat…honey you need to calm down, im fucking mexican and la catrina IS a part of our culture that is a halloween costume. you moron.
Actually no it’s not a costume and its not related to Halloween in no type of way shut up
um well im mexican and you’re wrong. and its associated with day of the dead which is on october 31st, you dumb twat, go fuck yourself and dont tell me what i should find offensive when its fucking NOT
“José Guadalupe Posada created a famous print of a figure he called La Calavera Catrina (“The Elegant Skull”) as a parody of a Mexican upper-class female. Posada’s striking image of a costumed female with a skeleton face has become associated with the Day of the Dead”
OH LOOK IT ORIGINATED AS A COSTUMED FEMALE WITH A PAINTED FACE
OH LOOK, MASKS…..OH MY LOOK AT HOW ITS WORN AS A FUCKING COSTUME EVEN WHEN CELEBRATING THE HOLIDAY, OH MAN OH MAN DONT WEAR MY CULTURE AS A COSTUME, WHEN THAT PART OF THE CULTURE IS IN FACT, A FUCKING COSTUME YOU GOD DAMN PIECE OF SHIT

I love when tumblr people are taken down by their own diet racism.
What angels are apparently supposed to look like.
They had 6 wings, covered with eyes on the wings. And had two eyes on their face, but used 2 wings to cover their face at all times because if a mortal ever saw their face they would die.
The bible mentions multiple faces, being covered in eyeballs, constant singing, lion heads etc.
Besides being described as beasts and monsters, they’re practically brainless drones. Heavenly angels are only one step removed from demons. The only difference is demons fell from heaven because they chose to follow Lucifer, who was an angel (angel of music and one of god’s favorites). So they are these eyeball covered animal mashed up monsters who were only created to worship for eternity (part of humanities creation was so that something would choose to love god, not just worship him because they were created to).
Angels fall into a lot of new age and conspiracy beliefs.We were taught that the supernatural realms went in the order of Heaven, Hell, then Earth. So when the angels fell from heaven with Lucifer, some fell through hell and landed on Earth. We were taught they intermarried with early humans and created giants and taught witch craft to women.
They’re abominations, they’re alien, they’re beyond us. They’re creatures that biology as we know it does not apply to. Often they do not love mankind, they love God and God alone.
Yeah, the few times that angels show up in front of people in the Old Testament in a human form, they’re glowing and their skin looks like its made of molten metal; scaring the piss out of anyone who sees them. I think Gabriel even admits to Daniel that he’s having to conceal his true power level, because Full Angel Mode would scramble a regular human’s brain.
Angels are fucking horrifying.
C.S. Lewis’s notes on this subject as they appear in the foreword to The Screwtape Letters are interesting.
It should be (but it is not) unnecessary to add that a belief in angels, whether good or evil, does not mean a belief in either as they are represented in art and literature. Devils are depicted with bats’ wings and good angels with birds’ wings, not because anyone holds that moral deterioration would be likely to turn feathers into membrane, but because most men like birds better than bats. They are given wings it all in order to suggest the swiftness of unimpeded intellectual energy. They are given human form because man is the only rational creature we know. Creatures higher in the natural order than ourselves, either incorporeal or animating bodies of a sort we cannot experience, must be represented symbolically if they are to be represented at all.
These forms are not only symbolical but were always known to be symbolical by reflective people. The Greeks did not believe that the gods were really like the beautiful human shapes their sculptures gave them. In their poetry a God who wishes to “appear” to a mortal temporarily assumes the likeness of a man. Christian theology has nearly always explained the “appearance” of an angel in the same way. It is only the ignorant, said Dionysius in the fifth century, who dreamed that spirits are really winged men.
In the plastic arts these symbols have steadily degenerated. Fra Angelico’s angels carry in their face and gesture the peace and authority of heaven. Later come the chubby infantile nudes of Rafael; finally the soft, slim, girlish, and consolatory angels of nineteenth century art, shapes so feminine that they avoid being voluptuous only by their total insipidity — the frigid houris of a tea-table paradise. They are a pernicious symbol. In Scripture the visitation of an angel is always alarming; it has to begin by saying “fear not.” The Victorian angel looks as if it was going to say, “There, there.”
When they tell the people they appear to in the Bible not to be afraid, it’s not, “don’t be startled by my sudden arrival.” They’re saying, "HUMAN DO NOT FEAR THE SIX WINGED MOLTEN METAL FORM THAT IS MY BEING."
Y’all wanted this so here you go! Whispers do you have any idea how hard it is to find VA clips without sound behind them. Its real hard.
Hypothetical VA Reel for Clockwork! I messed around with something like this months ago and never cared to finish it, but people were interested so I MADE THING. Do this for your own OCs! Its super fun!
anyway /rolls away
This is one of the first things that I thought of when I saw that Book 4 of LOK would be set three years later.
If you were twelve when ATLA first came out, then nine year later, you’re going to be twenty-one when LOK ends. Which means that you were the same age as Aang when ATLA started and the same age as Korra when LOK finished.
And I don’t believe that this is a coincidence at all.
