I am really not understanding how the fuck you people jumped so fast on this goddamn crazy train.

SOME OF YOU are right - we need more “humanizing” images of Hitler because we can…

As a swiss person who studies german and is confronted with those things I gotta say this: yes! I agree with you! for germans the point of ‘humanizing’ Hitler is to remember that while he was the ‘evil mastermind’ all the non-jewish germans followed him (or most). the point is to remind oneself that everyone is capable of evil and how easy it is to persuade people into hating each other. of course he is a monster. but calling him only a monster is dangerous too, because it is much easier to distance yourself from him. to me, seeing him being nice or seeing his ugly ass (sorry) postcards doesn’t make me think “aww no poor little baby”. it makes me think holy fuck! he was not only a dick, he also managed to be nice and even ‘seductive’ to the right people at the right time and he fooled an entire nation and he had hobbies like me and were i born in germany in the 30s i could have been in the hitlerjugend (or bund für deutsche mädel) and swoon over this idiot.

You know, they say that there is a part
of the human chest that if you strike it hard enough
the person’s heart explodes. This sounds like such a lie
that I have to believe it’s the truth. If I were science,
I’d never tell anyone where this place is. If I were science,
I’d have named this place after you.

imagine a high school romance movie about a girl who works her ass off to play on the football team and eventually becomes the quarterback and she dates one of the cheerleaders

Imagine a movie where the female protagonist does not have a love story in her plot and there is still somehow a story

my cute little text post about hoping for queer representation and stories about non-feminine women was definitely the right place to make this observation right on

Uhh there is a girl like that

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

What a weary time those years were — to have the desire and the need to live but not the ability.

Let’s use a metaphor.
You have a shot gun. 
When you shoot the gun, you can seriously wound of kill other people. But the gun will also kick back, and that can REALLY hurt. It can leave a big ass bruise. Hell, if you hold it wrong, and the gun is big enough, you could break your shoulder. Maybe you even shoot yourself in the foot every now and then. 
But you are still the one holding the gun.
