The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.

Coming Out Simulator 2014 - a half-true game about half-truths

Coming Out Simulator is exactly what it says it is. It’s a free-to-play conversation simulator based on/inspired by the personal story of coming out of its creator, Nicky Case.

There’s no easy answer in Coming Out Simulator, no optimal ending to be achieved if you collect the requisite amount of points. Case based the game off a pivotal moment in his own life as a teenager. And just like in real life, the moment of “coming out” in this game is traumatic no matter which way the player chooses to approach it.

Ultimately, it’s liberating as well. But that’s not what the brunt of the experience playing Coming Out Simulator is actually like. […] There’s power in exploring a fantasy like the one in Mass Effect 3, but there’s also power in being reminded that “coming out” the way one does in that game is a fantasy, and a pretty far-fetched one for many people who faced far more difficult challenges when they actually came out.

Coming Out Simulator is a game about that second experience. It’s a painful one. But it’s also a necessary one, that I think more people who’ve never had to struggle with their own sexual identity should see for themselves. 

this game made me cry omfg

About the four Palestinian boys, everyone sees that as a catastrophe and a tragedy, but it wasn't as if Israel was intentionally targeting those boys. And Hamas does use their own people as human shields and fires rockets at civilians in Israel (some actually hitting Palestinians), which are war crimes. When Israel bombs Gaza, they warn them. If they didn't, that would be a war crime. This situation with the boys on the beach was a horrific accident, and Israel is investigating why it happened.

time-out-of-life:

I was ready to call it quits on this issue after the entries from yesterday. I just want to blog silly and pretty things. But life happens, and sometimes we have to address the things that scare and disturb us. 

I’m glad everyone sees the beach bombing as a horrible thing. That’s what the response should be. But let’s talk about the use of human shields and courtesy warnings, since you brought it up. Gross combatants use civilians as human shields, banking on the idea that their opponent’s sense of ethics and morality will prevent them from acting violently That Hamas does this is despicable, yes. But what does it say about someone who knows their enemy is among civilians, bombs them and the civilians anyway, and then dares to suggest that their tactics are “surgical” and that their efforts to “avoid” killing civilians are “exemplary”? 

This is the most skilled military in the region. Yet for all their hard work, civilians are still dying in droves. F for Effort.

Two Israelis are dead—a civilian hit with a Hamas rocket, and an IDF soldier killed by friendly fire during the ground invasion. No reports of injuries. Meanwhile, there are upwards of 280 dead Palestinians in Gaza, with over 1000 injured. Over 70% are civilians. Is this acceptable?

The ratio of Palestinian vs. Israeli deaths to date is roughly 140:1. Yeah. It’s horrific. It’s tragic. But an accident? Spilling wine on your couch is an accident. Running into someone while you weren’t looking is an accident. Shooting at boys playing football on the beach in front of a hotel full of journalists, readjusting their aim to finish the job, and claiming that they were mistaken for militants? What kind of a whoopsie is that?

If this is an example of this military being careful to avoid civilian casualties, what happens when they stop being careful? 

Now, about the warning system. Israel’s got Iron Dome. Superior infrastructure with buildings designed to withstand rocketfire. A smartphone app that warns you of impending rocket attacks send by belligerents. Gravy. As an Israeli citizen, you are nervous and worried, but you can seek some comfort in the fact that you’ve got all of this to protect you, and your likelihood of injury or death is quite small. 

Now let’s say you are a civilian in Gaza. You have none of those things. Your sad excuse for an army is literally random angry people shooting bottle rockets over a wall, and there’s nothing offensive or even defensive to speak of here. Your house is not built to withstand any incendiary device. Just before a neighboring superior military power drops a bomb on your house, they blow the shingles off your roof with a smaller bomb and then give you a courtesy phone call to inform you that you have 3 minutes to evacuate or else die in the smoking rubble heap that your home will become. If you manage to escape, where do you go? There are walls at every border meant to keep you exactly where you are. The skies are saturated with planes lobbing missiles on the off-chance that there’s a terrorist lurking in the crowd, and the coast is lined with naval ships aiming at the shore. Your are traumatized, out of money, possibly injured, and there is nowhere to go. 

Meanwhile there are people sitting on a distant hilltop with lawn chairs and popcorn watching these missiles rain down on your town. Cheering, knowing the full implications of this pyrotechnics show. 

That the only journalists who reported on this, Diana Magnay and Ayman Mohyeldin, were yanked out of the region makes me leery of how this entire conflict is being covered on every news platform. It begs a lot of questions—questions everyone should be asking.

(I was the Anon who asked about the Palestinian boys on the beach). It’s reassuring that your response was so logical. I acknowledge that civilian casualties are always unacceptable. But you have to realise that Israel has been in this situation for a long time and does’t have many options. What are they supposed to do? The Iron Dome isn’t one-hundred percent reliable, and each interceptor costs tens of thousands. They can’t have the whole country in a state of having to accommodate multiple interruptions on a daily basis indefinitely, but when they go into Gaza in any way, they are bound to create a horrific number of civilian casualties and damage to infrastructure. The whole area is in a fucked up situation, generally, and pretty much the only thing everyone seems to agree on is that Hamas needs to go and the Palestinian’s need someone to support and represent them.

Other than that, about what you said about the journalists: of course its ridiculous and wrong that those journalists were pulled, but I personally feel sort of relieved. Not because I want Big Brother to crack down on every reporter who actually reports, but more because media on these issues always backfires on the Jewish community. There isn’t really anything that’s happening that can be stopped by a well-informed public overseas, and broadcasting all the horrific stuff that goes on in Gaza along with all the fake images posted online is not going to help anybody. I know it’s wrong to think that way, and if it was any other issue I would say that people have a right to see everything that’s going on, but in this case the fact is that everything that happens in Gaza is being used by anti-Semites as an excuse to try and validate their opinion by disguising it as valid protest about Israel.

It might not be the most logical view on things, but as a Jew who reads about 200 Jews essentially being barricaded in a Paris synagogue after some pro-Palestinian protestors broke off from the group, a rabbi being beaten in Casablanca, it is frightening. In Melbourne, Australia, a guy who was wearing a shirt with Hebrew writing was beaten up by men who were calling him “Jewish dog” and shouting about Gaza in Arabic; he realised they were trying to pull him away and only managed to save himself because he had IDF training and startled them by swearing at them in Arabic, which he learnt while serving in Israel. My best friend’s brother likes to wear a jacket from his youth movement; it was only luck that someone who knew Arabic and how to defend himself was targeted instead of a teenager who likes his Jewish youth movement. 

And it isn’t as if I’m being completely paranoid about this either, because my school seems to consider it a legitimate issue. Yesterday they pulled everyone in Year 9 or above out of class to get someone who organises a lot of security in our community to speak to us about not taking unnecessary risks. Risks like those girls from another Jewish school took on their excursion into the city, when they saw some people handing out pamphlets about Israel and tried to talk to them about it, and those people handing out the pamphlets started to react aggressively when they realised these girls were Jewish. No one was hurt, thank God. But the response from the international community is much more virulent than if this was any other part of the world, and frankly I can’t help but feel panicked when people report on Gaza, even though it is a horrible crisis and people are dying, because for so many people around the world it isn’t about the shit the Palestinians are going through, it’s about punishing the Jews.

Chiune Sugihara. This man saved 6000 Jews. He was a Japanese diplomat in Lithuania. When the Nazis began rounding up Jews, Sugihara risked his life to start issuing unlawful travel visas to Jews. He hand-wrote them 18 hrs a day. The day his consulate closed and he had to evacuate, witnesses claim he was STILL writing visas and throwing from the train as he pulled away. He saved 6000 lives. The world didn’t know what he’d done until Israel honored him in 1985, the year before he died.

Why can’t we have a movie about him?

He was often called “Sempo”, an alternative reading of the characters of his first name, as that was easier for Westerners to pronounce.
His wife, Yukiko, was also a part of this; she is often credited with suggesting the plan. The Sugihara family was held in a Soviet POW camp for 18 months until the end of the war; within a year of returning home, Sugihara was asked to resign - officially due to downsizing, but most likely because the government disagreed with his actions.
He didn’t simply grant visas - he granted visas against direct orders, after attempting three times to receive permission from the Japanese Foreign Ministry and being turned down each time. He did not “misread” orders; he was in direct violation of them, with the encouragement and support of his wife.
He was honoured as Righteous Among the Nations in 1985, a year before he died in Kamakura; he and his descendants have also been granted permanent Israeli citizenship. He was also posthumously awarded the Life Saving Cross of Lithuania (1993); Commander’s Cross Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland (1996); and the Commander’s Cross with Star of the Order of Polonia Restituta (2007). Though not canonized, some Eastern Orthodox Christians recognize him as a saint.
Sugihara was born in Gifu on the first day of 1900, January 1. He achieved top marks in his schooling; his father wanted him to become a physician, but Sugihara wished to pursue learning English. He deliberately failed the exam by writing only his name and then entered Waseda, where he majored in English. He joined the Foreign Ministry after graduation and worked in the Manchurian Foreign Office in Harbin (where he learned Russian and German; he also converted to the Eastern Orthodox Church during this time). He resigned his post in protest over how the Japanese government treated the local Chinese citizens. He eventually married Yukiko Kikuchi, who would suggest and encourage his acts in Lithuania; they had four sons together. Chiune Sugihara passed away July 31, 1986, at the age of 86. Until her own passing in 2008, Yukiko continued as an ambassador of his legacy.
It is estimated that the Sugiharas saved between 6,000-10,000 Lithuanian and Polish Jewish people.

I want everyone to reblog this. I know no one will, because this isn’t a picture of a skinny girl or a deep meaningful quote. This is deeper than everything, how can someone ignore what’s happening in Gaza at the moment. This is one example of many innocent lives being threatened for no reason. This breaks my heart.

this is so fucked up like how can you do this

Ok, usually I’d scroll past this, but this is fake.
How do I know? Well, 1, the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) don’t wear flip flops or sweatpants. So, that’s 100% not the IDF. They also (apparently) don’t use AK-47, the type of gun in this photograph 2, most importantly, that’s not in Gaza. After some digging, I found that this photo was also being used as propaganda in the Syrian massacre, and that this child is, to the best of my knowledge, Yemeni. (http://humanrightsvoice.wordpress.com/2014/04/20/armenian-childhood-in-syria-really-heartbreaking/)  
Even if that is false, the picture has been around since April 20th, and as such, is not describing what is happening in Gaza today.
I don’t mean to get so angry, but this has been happening a lot in the past few days. People have been taking photos from horror films and claiming that they were taken in Gaza. It’s really annoying me that so many people just can’t do their fact checking.
