Quidditch Global Games: Introducing Team East Asia!

Hello, quidditch world! With the Global Games soon upon us, it is time to release the roster that everyone has been waiting for! It is my great honor to announce that Team East Asia is finally complete!  The applicants were put through a rigorous selection process, which included entrance exams, ability to  withstand bad driving jokes, and mastery of all four elements.  Unfortunately, the selection committee could not communicate with any of the actual quidditch players in China as the committee’s parents never forced them to go Chinese School.  However, the committee has worked long and hard to select a starting lineup from the approximately 10 Asian quidditch players in the U.S.  It was a difficult process, but someone had to make the hard decisions so that people could write angry Tumblr posts about it later.  Due to the fact that many people will be unable to tell the players apart, the committee has assigned a famous historical Asian figure to each player for reference. Without further ado, here is Team East Asia!

Keeper: Hai Nguyen (Son Goku)

Chaser: Alyssa Burton (Yellow Ranger)

Chaser: Vanessa Goh (San)

(The committee recognizes that the previous two players are partially white and are willing to forgive them for their shortcomings)

Chaser: Jeff Lin (BlackWarGreymon)

Beater: Chris Seto (Seto Kaiba)

Note: Chris Seto has also been selected for Team USA. The selection committee wants him to know he has a completely voluntary, no-pressure choice in deciding where his loyalties lie.*

*the wrong choice may result in forced seppuku.

Beater: Peter Lee  (Ash Ketchum get it? Because he catches them all???)

Seeker/utility: Brian Wong (Speed Racer)

We hope to bring great honor to East Asia in the 2014 Global Games!*

*any complaints can be sent to the DMZ in Korea

Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay

I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:

Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.

I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.

The above text, I would like to point out is from the point of view of this translation of the original Hebrew. I spoke with my cousin’s rabbi on the matter and his response was different, saying that it was a mistranslation. See, the true translation says that a man shall not lie with another in the bed of a woman, which is to say, the Hebrews had a shit ton of rules about when a man was or was not allowed in a woman’s bed and private quarters (including, if she didn’t want you there, you weren’t allowed there. Hebrew women were also allowed to divorce their husbands and the image of the ‘oppressive Hebrew people’ is an image that was propogated by Christianity which, historically speaking, doesn’t treat the Jewish people too well and liked to paint them as being rather barbaric and backwards and cultish with their traditions, which, another piece of fun info, their traditions were one of the main reasons why the Jewish people were less likely, in medieval times, to die of the plague. Because washing your hands and avoiding the dead and vermin and the like was a lot of help. Of course the Christians persecuted them for not dying but that’s another matter. I’m sidetracked). So the verse is literally saying ‘Don’t fuck in some lady’s bed because that’s just goddamn rude’

Also, whenever a Christian brings the book of Leviticus up, you should feel free to point out that these are rules that were given to make the Hebrew people prepared for when the son of God came to earth. In Christianity, it’s believed the son of God was Jesus. So by following the rules set in Leviticus or pushing them as things we should follow, they’re saying that Jesus was not the son of God, and that Jesus did not, in fact, die for our sins. Jewish people believe, in their faith, that the son of God hasn’t yet been born, so many choose to follow these rules.

Most people of course roll their eyes when I explain the translation of the verse (full breakdown found here) but it’s always fun to point out the nature of the rules in Leviticus and the implications of following them. 

I’m a theology student and I am on the verge of crying because of how accurate this commentary is. Historical context is simultaneously the most interesting and most important part of interpreting any texts. 

Most religious people seem to base their beliefs on things that are severely mistranslated. I wish they would do their research before using the bible for hate.

I studied theology extensively and was going to become a theologist until I switched majors. The above commentary is 100% accurate and what I try to stress in a lot if conversations with Bible Thumpers.

Jesus also affirms the homosexual relationship between the Roman Centurion and his “slave”. The particular Greek word used to refer to this special slave was “pais”. Greek language studies and contexts show that a “pais” was a male love slave. Regular slaves were called “dolos”. The Centurion makes this distinction clearly when he asks Jesus to heal his slave (pais), and then to prove his status he tells Jesus that his slaves (dolos) go when he tells them to. But this slave (pais) was special. He was the Centurion’s lover.

Hearing this, Jesus was so amazed he says he had not found ANYONE ELSE who had such great faith. He then blesses the Centurion and heals his male lover.

Matthew 8:5-13

THIS IS WHAT THE BIBLE REALLY TEACHES ABOUT SAME SEX COUPLES.

In short, the English adaptation is a mistranslated farce.

savagenosh asked: Hi Gail! My friends and I are going to cosplay at Comic-Con and I'm looking for ideas! They are planning to be batman/robin and deathstroke/deadpool, but I don't have to match them. So far my ideas are Batgirl and a taco. I'm a big fan of your stuff so any ideas are much appreciated! I'm female and brunette, but I'm willing to genderbend/get wigs if necessary. :) Thanks!

gailsimone:

I am sort of amazed that you would still be considering anything ELSE once you hit on the idea of Batgirl and a taco!

I say Batgirl and a taco. :)

Haha, ok, better get started working on my taco costume!
