I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

im really interested in zombie apocalypse media as a projection and extension of young american male craving for power-based survival-of-the-fittest type narratives that celebrate violence and dehumanization of the other

It makes sense: the first Godzilla craze in japan reflected the fear they felt about the danger of nuclear radiation.

I dislike how survival horror used to be a genre stocked with female heroes, where men who couldn’t get along with others died, and now has become the opposite and are fantasies of dudes who don’t like other people to pretend that in a just post-societal world their awesome individuality would be recognized.

#I also always analyzed it that women survived this genre so well #because women are used to being in a world with predators #and men aren’t

boom

this is one reason why I’m so not interested in zombie movies despite them having gore and sometimes body horror and the usual sort of thing I like — I mean, okay, zombie-as-meme got old for me fast, and zombie movies tend to have a bit of sameness to them, but I really really started recoiling from the whole zombie genre about the time dudes started masturbating to Max Brooks

the vast majority of zombie apocalypse fantasies just put me right the hell off because I know it’s this gross power-tripping desire to kill people with no repercussions (and yes, zombies are not people, but there’s a reason alien/mutant wildlife apocalypse fantasies aren’t nearly as popular — zombies look like people) and also a hatred for society and its rules

not that society is all that great or anything but you get what I mean

it occurred to me while watching Day of the Dead that several of the characters are exactly the kind of dude who would be the protagonist in a macho wish-fulfillment zombie scenario, except in that movie they’re disgusting antagonists who get what they deserve — points to Romero, I guess
