so okay i just need to make a post about this new anime i started watching, Yuki Yuna wa Yusha de Aru

it’s a magical girl anime, and one of the main characters is disabled

image

Togo was in an accident when she was little and hasn’t been able to move or feel her legs since.  of course, i fucking lost my shit at a main character in an anime this season being disabled, but i was kind of curious and apprehensive about how they were going to handle her disability when she transforms.

image

see those ribbons?  togo isn’t magically healed when she transformed, making her disability just something to make her unique when she’s a human.  no, those ribbons are how she moves.  her legs still don’t work, but the ribbons on her costume get her around and maneuver her so she can fight just as good as the other girls.

I AM SO.  FUCKING.  HAPPY.

DISABLED REPRESENTATION MATTERS.

I’ve never heard people use “bubble tea” :/ Do people use that?

~Tae

WHITE PEOPLE DO

and now I have poc using that bullshit

as far as I can tell by research, it’s coinage is credited to white people mispronouncing boba and not having the decency or respect to correct themselves

Wow…I’ve never heard of this. I feel lost :/

~Tae

I’m going to have to go with some of the people reblogging this- I don’t think that’s the origin. I’ve heard it both ways, and I, personally, was introduced to it as boba. However, I’m not Vietnamese so.
You’re probably better off consulting someone who is.

Whaaat! Here in Hawai’i we call it bubble tea??? Well both, but it came over in little Vietnamese road-side stands as bubble tea.

Okay, in the Bay Area, where boba is like a “fad,” we all call it boba haha. I remember when I was in middle school, it was “tapioca.” Nobody really called it “bubble drinks.”

Apparently boba came from Taiwan, tho. Not sure what they call it over there haha.

I’ve never heard it called Tapioca haha, although I know the little balls are made from Tapioca. We also call it Milk Tea here or Pearl Tea … Actually now that I think on it Pearl Tea is more common here in Hawai’i …

But I messaged my friend (who is from Taiwan and is thankfully totally cool with me buggin’ on her with stuff) and she said:

Yo, that’s pretty interesting actually haha. I guess what people call it depends on the region, and you gotta be pretty colloquial about it haha.

Every place I’ve ever been to called it “bubble tea” on the signs. :/ I think it being a regional thing is a way more likely explanation.

Filed under I was vaguely aware it's also called boba but literally that's just not what it's advertised as ever

They say they want politics out of video game coverage? OK, now we’re getting somewhere.
 
By politics, the voices calling for ethics reform really mean “progressive” politics. The so-called corruption that needs to be rooted out is a focus on “diversity” and the “magnitude of the human experience.” It should be no surprise that the outlets and voices specifically targeted by GamerGate are progressive. Baldwin was the first of several notable opportunists who, despite caring little for video games or video game culture, were more than happy to contribute to any movement that counted “SJWs” — that’s “social justice warriors,” for those of you out of the loop — as enemies. That “social justice warrior” is considered a pejorative at all speaks volumes about the motivations behind much of GamerGate and its fixation on progressive voices.

The fact that he was never actually outright “rejected” and simply expected girls to just come to him wanting to fuck him makes this even more pathetic.

It really is the ultimate form of victim-blaming and advocacy of male entitlement to say that a man who intended to commit genocide against women did so because “we rejected him”.
