80s, Apparently, and Books: ladylisa: gemfyre: lauralandons: thereadersmuse: jehovahhthickness: lightning-st0rm: pearlmito: smootymormonhelldream: stripedsilverfeline: anti-clerical: ramirezbundydahmer: When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969. This should be required learning, internationally.  You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten.  Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now.  Make it stop?  I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling. My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable.  I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them. @mindlesshumor ok how the fuck did I miss this when I’ve studied The Holocaust like nobody’s business??? wtf Because the history we have left regarding it is literally the contents of this first hand account. It is a thin little book. When I first opened it, I wondered why it was so thin. Why there wasn’t other books like it. Other first hand accounts. By the time I finished it, I didn’t wonder anymore. Further reading: I, Pierre Seel, Deported Homosexual: A Memoir of Nazi Terror by Pierre Seel An Underground Life: Memoirs of a Gay Jew in Nazi Berlin by Gad Beck The Pink Triangle: The Nazi War Against Homosexuals by Richard Plant Branded By The Pink Triangle by Ken Setterington Bent by Martin Sherman (fiction; however, it’s often credited with bringing attention to gay Holocaust victims for the first time since the war ended) This is one of the memorial sculptures in Dachau.  It was erected in the early 60s and is missing the pink triangles.  Because in the early 60s, homosexuality was still a crime in most of the world.Our tour guide explained why the pink triangles have not been added later - if they were, then folks would assume that they had always been there.  This way people ask “why aren’t there pink triangles?” and somebody can explain why - because in some ways, the rest of the world was as bass-ackwards as Nazi Germany. Apparently, this wasnt taught in schools in the 70s-80s, cuz when I mentioned it to my mom, she had no idea that gays were held in concentration camps. She thought it was just jewish people.

Books, Fire, and Music: Summer arrived. Summer made things hot, and both Adam and Ronan smelled more in the summer, though they didn't seem to notice or care Ronan accidentally started a fire in one of the smaller outbuildings, and although this started out shouty it ended up wild and joyful, with both Adam and Ronan hurling things into it while music galloped in the background. Adam's car got off the blocks and almost immediately re turned to them. There were a lot of mice, which Opal enjoyed catchin and occasionally eating. The cloud lady continued bringing books and foods to the bench by the creek and also began to bring a suitcase with tubes that went in her nose, which was interesting and made Opal stick things up her nose for a few days after she first saw it. Adam got one o the Lynch family's old backhoes running again and dug a strategically placed hole out in one of the fields. A natural spring slowly began to it and an unnatural hosepipe finished the job; the boys stripped an leapt into the resulting body of water on the hottest of days. Opal did not want to swim but Adam taught her until she was fearless, and then Ronan threw buoyant objects for her to fetch until he got tired of being on the shore. He had dreamt himself a pair of tattered black wings that did not quite hold him and he used them now like a temporary diving board, letting them lift him half a dozen feet fore dropping him with a muddy splash. Opal floated on her back anod kicked her legs like Adam had shown her to do while the boys clung to each other in the water and then separated. The heat in the air made everything smell and look more like itself. Everything was very good over the water be- Summer had animalness in it, though, just like a human, and so it too eventually had to die maggie-stiefvater: x

We already have a system in place to stop the violent actions of the intolerant. They’re called laws against murder and assault. We don’t need to further extend a policy of “intolerance” requiring shutting people down or justifying attacking them because of their “unacceptable” views.</p> Calling people out for their bullshit works infinitely better than constantly trying to shut them down. All you do then is convince them that they are martyrs and if they’re being persecuted for their beliefs they must be right. But if you actually call out the flaws in their argument, even if you don’t change *their* mind, you may sway someone who was considering their point of view before.

Advice, Anaconda, and Asian: STEAMPUNK &other genres thewritingcaf <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://nimblesnotebook.tumblr.com/post/61794170451">nimblesnotebook</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><em>Guide to Writing Steampunk</em></p> <p><strong>BASICS</strong></p> <blockquote> <p><strong>Punk Genres:</strong><span> </span><em>most common genres are in italics</em></p> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li> <em><strong>Atomicpunk</strong></em><span>: Optimistic retro science fiction based on the Space Age. Think <em>The Jetsons</em>.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Biopunk</strong></em><span>: </span><span>This genre is about altering genetics and DNA. These stories often take place in the near-future in which humans have been altered or in which human experimentation is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Candlepunk</strong><span>: Similar to clockpunk, but darker and with less technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Clockpunk</strong><span>: </span><span>Think Da Vinci’s inventions, but more advanced while. This genre follows the aesthetics and technology of Western civilization during the mid to late middle ages, though sometimes it’s set in the Victorian era.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Cyberpunk</strong></em><span>: Has advanced technology and often focuses on artificial intelligence and the cyber world. The setting is often near-future rather than far-future. Blade Runner is an example.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Dieselpunk</strong><span>: Based on aesthetics and technology between World War I and World War II, sometimes up until the Cold War.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Decopunk</strong><span>: Ranges from the aesthetics of the 1920’s to the 1950’s. Decopunk aesthetic is heavily based on modernism. Less gritty than dieselpunk.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Elfpunk</strong><span>: Basically urban fantasy, but with common high or epic fantasy creatures put in an urban setting rather than vampires and werewolves.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Nanopunk</strong><span>: Similar to biopunk, but biotechnology is less available and nanotechnology is common.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Sandalpunk</strong><span>: Set in ancient worlds, such as Rome, but with advanced technology.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Splatterpunk</strong><span>: Extremely graphic and contains a lot of gore.</span> </li> <li> <em><strong>Steampunk</strong></em><span>: This genre gets its name from the heavy steam-powered technology involved. Aesthetics are based on the Victorian and industrial eras of the Western world, though other cultural elements may be used.</span> </li> <li> <strong>Western Steampunk</strong><span>: Similar to steampunk, but with Western (as in Wild West) aesthetics and settings.</span> </li> </ul><span>So why are there so many sub genres? For starters, they help agents and publishers get an idea of what they’re in for if you’re going through the traditional publishing route. While bookstores usually just put these genres within science fiction or fantasy, you can still market your book through sub genres to reach a specific group of people who are looking for these genres.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>However, there are a lot of sub genres, most of which many have not heard of. If you’ve written one of these genres and intend to publish it, the best would be to put it under another name (with the exception of steampunk, cyberpunk, and biopunk). For example, if you have written a candlepunk story, you can propose it as fantasy, alternate historical fiction, or any other genre it may fit in. While atomicpunk is quite common, it’s not well known by that name. If you have written an atompunk story, the best way to market it would be to call it retro science fiction.</span><br/><span> </span><br/><span>But what’s the difference between punk genres and historical fiction? The technology is a big difference. It’s usually more advanced for the time it’s modeled after.</span> </div> <div><span> </span></div> <div><strong><span>TECHNOLOGY</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div><span>The technology is one of the defining aspects of steampunk. It’s the basis for the world you’re writing in. For the typical steampunk story, technology will be (of course) steam powered.</span></div> <div><span> </span></div> </blockquote> <div> <ul><li><a href="http://ageofsteam.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/a-guide-to-steampunk-gadgets-and-technology/">A Guide to Steampunk Gadgets and Technology</a></li> <li><a href="http://steampunk.wikia.com/wiki/Airship">Airship</a></li> <li><a href="http://pinterest.com/steamcircus/steampunk-airships-submarines/">Steampunk Airships Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/classic/steampunk-blimp-pictures.htm#page=0">Steampunk Blimps</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/category-technology/channel-steampunk/">Technology Steampunk Instructables</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jdh2812/steampunk-technology/">Steampunk Technology Inspiration</a></li> <li><a href="http://people.howstuffworks.com/steampunk.htm">How Steampunk Works</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.pinterest.com/jouhaan/steampunk-gadgets/">Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> <li><a href="http://www.trendhunter.com/slideshow/steampunk-gadgets">100 Functional Steampunk Gadgets</a></li> </ul></div> <div><strong><span>CHARACTERS &amp; FASHION</span></strong></div> <blockquote> <div>Another defining feature of steampunk is the aesthetics and the characters.

It shows that perhaps one of the most evil men in history, was a human being. That, on occasion, he could be nice, even flirty. That’s not all. You want to see evil people as evil, screaming horrible stuff over a desk with 20 microphones with 20, 000 people saluting them. The evil is clear and recognizable then. This shows a completely different image, it scares you because that means that evil isn’t a stereotype, that evil is not recognizable, that evil could be anyone. It scares you because this shows that could be lurking inside anyone and you’ll never ever know. Maybe in you? </p> </blockquote> <p>i reblogged this literally like 2 minutes ago, but i want this version because of that comment ^</p> </blockquote> <p>That comment is one of my favorite post commentaries, because it’s completely right. People aren’t inherently evil. Like good, it’s a role they grow and live into. We have just as much potential to destroy as this man exhibited. And it’s a very eye opening experience to realize that.</p> </blockquote> <p>does anyone even remember that one time hitler attended that luncheon between world leaders, some guests of which even included china’s socialist leader as well as Stalin. And then when they were ordering, everyone was gladly ordering impressive dishes one after the other, but Hitler placed an order for barley tea and a pheasant (considered a peasant’s meal by standard). When he was questioned as to why he would order something like this in something as grand as a world leader’s congress, he replied,</p> <p>“I don’t smoke when my people cannot smoke, and I cannot eat when my people are going hungry.”</p> <p>He wasn’t evil for its own sake, let’s try to remember that despite the countless murders, but for a moment, he did actually believe he was doing something for the good of his countrymen.</p> </blockquote> <p><b>WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE</b></p> </blockquote> <p>No, he’s right. Hitler, though extremely wrong in his views, did everything for what he thought would better the lives of his people. It was wrong. It was disgustingly, horribly wrong. But he did not do it because it was evil and he was evil. He did it because he believed it would help Germany and those who needed a better life. Those who don’t understand or even try to understand the human brain will always label men like him as ‘evil’ because it is easier to accept. But he wasn’t ‘evil.’ He felt love and loyalty and responsibilities. He simply took these aspects and morphed them into a twisted, violent thing. </p> </blockquote> <p>Tumblr is probably the only place we could have this conversation and not be lynched.</p> </blockquote> <p>dang son</p> </blockquote> <h2>“Every villain is a hero in his own mind.”</h2> <p><br/>― <a href="http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5166208.Tom_Hiddleston">Tom Hiddleston</a></p> </blockquote> <p>I love every thing about the comments.</p> </blockquote> <p>When you have to reblog a bunch of “hurt dürr Hitler was bad” bullshit because OP deleted the post. .-.</p> </blockquote> <p>this is awkward</p> </blockquote> <p>that moment when you want your favorite beloved ruthless dictator Nazi racist who is responsible for the arguably the biggest tragedy of the millennium is criticized by people on an internet site so you can’t reblog a post to romanticize an absolutely fucking evil man</p> </blockquote> <p>he still was a human being though. We have to confront that. He wasn’t a single-minded robotic monster from a bad YA novel.</p></blockquote> <p>Ah *inhales* fresh Hitler Discourse™</p>
