there’s freedom in knowing that you are not, and have never been, good enough

Why I, as an Iraqi, will NOT watch Homeland

mehreenkasana:

yellow-turbanfacing:

I don’t know much about Homeland- but I am aware that there is a character that is psychologically damaged from time spent is Iraq

And so why I am NOT going to watch Homeland is this-

I am so sorry that your ILLEGAL, UNFOUNDED INVASION of MY COUNTRY psychologically damaged

I am so sorry that YOU entering MY LAND without warrant hurt you

I am sorry that YOU are the VICTIM because God knows, WE, THE IRAQI PEOPLE, APPARENT AREN’T

A lot of people have told me “governments start wars, soldiers fight them”

To which I respond-

DO NOT feed me that victimization of soldiers rhetoric

THEIR ACTIONS are THEIR ACTIONS

They have the CHOICE, the RESOURCES and the OPPORTUNITY to learn about what being in the US military entails and many don’t take that chance

WE DID NOT HAVE THAT CHOICE

WE SIMPLY GOT INVADED

WE ARE THE VICTIMS

A lot of people have also told me “if not for the Americans, you’d still be living under Saddam! Don’t you get that?”

Buddy- as a SHIA IRAQI, believe me, I GET IT

I DON’T GET where the ILLEGAL American invasion comes in

I DON’T GET where this inevitable moral duty of the Americans to be OUR SAVIORS and to LIBERATE us from oppression comes in

I DON’T GET where the idea that we are INCAPABLE of removing our own tyrants comes in

When I see what’s happening in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Syria, Libya and Yemen, 

FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE,

All I can think is-

THAT COULD HAVE BEEN US

ARABS DO NOT REQUIRE WESTERN INTERVENTION TO FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE VERY DICTATORS THAT WESTERN NATIONS SUPPORTED AND VERY OFTEN INSTALLED

We are NOT a monolithic race of desert-dwellers, doomed to suffer in our tents until Uncle Sam and the rest of his WHITE SAVIOR army comes in

We can do it ON OUR OWN

So I don’t appreciate people dumbing my people down and robbing them of their agency and their ability to do it themselves

I ACTUALLY FUCKING HATE THAT

In conclusion-

I, PERSONALLY, AS AN IRAQI, will NOT watch Homeland because it engages in the victimization of the invaders of my country, MY HOMELAND, and because that victimization proliferates the White Savior stereotype and takes away from my people their agency and their RIGHT to feel victimized by the illegal invasion and occupation of our land and our lives

PS-I do not know how Homeland is as a show. For all I know, it could be excellent. I have heard mixed reports about its portrayal of Islam and Arabs so I will defer to those who have actually watched it because I will not.

“All the standard stereotypes about Islam and Muslims are reinforced, and it is demonstrated ad nauseam that anyone marked as ‘Muslim’ by race or creed can never be trusted, all via the deceptively unsophisticated bureau-jargon of the government’s top spies… The implicit message is that millions of Palestinian refugees and their descendants (or all Muslims since they are interchangeable on ‘Homeland’) can pose a similar threat merely because of their backgrounds. And perhaps the even more insidious implication is one that Michele Bachmann would love: that Muslims, no matter how successful, well-placed and integrated, are a hidden danger to their fellow Americans.”

Fuck that show.

the Mountain Goats - Counting Songs For Bitter Children

one, two, two and a half
Stick around here, don’t make me laugh
Two and a half, three, four point five
A new day’s dawning and my hours arrive

I don’t even know what to say about this song. It took me more than an hour to track down because, as far as I’m aware, this is the only recording in existence and it was uploaded by JD to sendspace four years ago and posted on the mountain-goats.com forum, where sharing is, uh, a complicated business. I think it’s a shame to let a gem like this disappear, though, so here it is.

omg

TV MEME [2/10] SHOWS YOU LOVE↳ Buffy the Vampire Slayer“So here’s the part where you make a choice. What if you could have that power, now? In every generation, one Slayer is born, because a bunch of men who died thousands of years ago made up that rule. They were powerful men. This woman… is more powerful than all of them combined. So I say we change the rule. I say my power… should be our power. Tomorrow, Willow will use the essence of the Scythe to change our destiny. From now on, every girl in the world who might be a Slayer, will be a Slayer. Every girl who could have the power, will have the power, can stand up, will stand up. Slayers… every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?”

Steve: Carol! 
Carol: I’m fine. Behind you! The shield— now! 
Steve: Yes, ma’am. 
Absorbing Man: You lettin’ the little missus give the orders now?! Wouldn’t catch me gettin’ bossed around by no broad. 
Carol: This “broad” left the service a full bird colonel. So technically, I outrank him. 
Steve: I’ve been trying to get you demoted for years. 
Carol: Don’t I know it.
