please tag your snk, snk is an alright series but it makes me really uncomfortable because its creator is a war crime apologist and has trivialized the murder of millions of koreans, chinese, indonesians, filipinos, vietnamese etc and its really disturbing to see literally every day how the snk fandom does not care and is pretending nothing is wrong with that
also id like to apologize for generalizing the snk fandom; i did not intend for this post to gain attention or become a hub for information and therefore let my emotions get a little ahead of me, and it seems that the biggest problem is that most people do not know anything about this
i’m reblogging this again because after reading up on these links, i’m pretty overwhelmed. i know just about everyone i follow posts snk and loves it, but personally i really can’t be a part of the fandom anymore.
i know, for me, my beliefs and biases bleed into my stories and reflect my heart. i find my own work so close to who i am that i really can’t accept this kind of behavior and racism from an author i previously supported.
plus Mikasa’s character, one of my favorites, is pretty ruined for me. being named after a battleship that had control over Korea, her story seems disgustingly contrived, given that she is almost sold into sex slavery as a child and THAT is precisely some of the war crimes committed by Japan to Korean women. in essence, Isayama respects and admires war crimes and believes Koreans should be thankful to Japan for colonizing them.
that’s fucked up, dude.
i would appreciate if people tagged their snk, too. thanks guys.
yep yep i still post snk but i do tag all of it and it really disgusts me that so many people in the fandom (even who ARE aware of all this shit) continue to put isayama on a pedestal
PLEASE tag your snk because it VERY REASONABLY MAKES A LOT OF PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE + ANGRY
