Racism (in the Hetalia fandom?) //RANT, WARNING//

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 4, 2013, 1:05 PM




Nope nope noppiti nope nope-

Racism hurts guys. 
Why would you want to bring such a delicate topic up into a fandom of a comedy anime?
I understand some moments in history were indeed centered on racism....

But you know what- It offends me.
YES- I actually get offended in behave of other races.

I am a white girl, remember? But i'm pretty much a mutt. I have many races mixed into me, and it hurts when such a topic is brought up.
I am not a sensitive person, I could care less about things going on about me or around me, but this topic honestly annoys me.
You want to know why? Because my parents are pretty racist. Sometimes I know its joking, but other times, no its not just them joking around... You don't even understand. My parents constantly go; You can't date anyone black! You can't date any stupid american! Even- you can't date anyone asian! 
I AM FUCKING HALF ASIAN (Technically. Because Kazakhstan is an Asian country.)
I hate it so much. 
I love all skin colors and races.

Now racism to support or destroy pairings in Hetalia is completely different so doN'T DO IT. That is just uncalled for in my opinion. Its a paring for the heck of humanity- do you really need to bring in racism? No. And no exceptions. 
Why do you think I enjoy contrast pairs in Hetalia? Because racism sucks and love exists for all types of people between each other. 

Plus, need I remind you, there were areas in the anime where it was WW2. WW2 was purely about racial differences. And guess what? not a single trace of racism was in the anime. 
So many people were discriminated then for any race they were. ANY RACE. Canada, despite how multicultural and great we are now, we used to be EXACTLY THE SAME. We used to not let people join our country because of their race or their religion. So don't pinpoint countries, it was everyone's issue.
Guess what else? South Korea was not desired to be animated because he was found "racist and offensive" (even though i don't think he is at all and neither do my bunches of Korean friends). Yet he is still not animated.
Hetalia isn't about racism. Because its a delicate topic. 
Himaruya didn't want it, so why would we?
I know Hetalia isn't the most accurate, but STILL.

I don't even want to bother with comments on this so please either don't or keep it simple?
Thanks.
If you really want to talk about this, note me ^^ 
Though if I find what you tell me offensive I won't even bother talking about it
Sorry <3

SORRY FOR THE RANT GUYS
I JUST REALLY NEED TO DO THAT SOMETIMES
To release steam, you know?
I'm not pointing fingers, I have actually just seen this multiple times with debates and it finally got to me so much i had to rant.

*reads the link* Honestly, I don't know whether to feel relieved, feel guilty for being angry, feel silly for making a rant about it or still feel frustrated. Even so, it's extremely unlikely that I'll be watching that Hetalia stamp account again (most likely never will).

Maybe all of the above?
Haha no one wants you to, nor is anyone making you. But just because someone doesn't agree with how a ship is portrayed (which you may like) doesn't mean you have to dislike them. That's silly.

I'm not talking about the ships, I'm talking about the new rule.

Which was by a shipping stamp account. You are talking about ships, even at the beginning of your rant.

I was pissed off about the new rule denying requests for stamps for ships that are deemed "offensive." Even now that the stamp maker (sort of, at least) reworded the rule, I'm still keeping this rant up.

How in the world is that bad? Because some ships are offensive to people (I know a lot of my friends get offended by certain ships) then denying requests for such ships really spares a lot more feelings and conflicts and honestly spares any chance of things coming across as disrespectful. 
The conflict happened put that rule up for a reason.

Welcome to my world 8II that is why I can't go to the US right now.
First of all because my father was an inmigrant (yes, he crossed that desert, I really don't know how ORZ ))and he lived horrible situations there.
And now he is a full racist.
He hates americans.
And...even some mexicans,but the last is more for Jokes x'DD
we make a lot of jokes about people who lives in the capital.
I don't see why peopel still doing racism :II It is just so STUPID.
WHY?!?!!?
I mean, we live in 21th century people.

Ahhh racism such a sensitive subject...
At school people consently think I'm Mexican just because I'm hispanic! (Am a mutt yep) That makes me cry inside. Because people dont know of any other hispanic country but Mexico! People dont bother to look and ask what race people are anymore they just go by sterotypes.
Did your parents really tell you all of that stuff to you? Geez thats harsh!

Exactly. Ugh, that topic about every latino being mexican is a bit annoying too. Mexicans are amazing ok dhueuhfer but seriously, Mexico is a very small part of the whole Latin America. People need to learn thaaaat :I
Uh yeah, I don't like it either.

I hate how some fans are racist against Hetalia characters. I saw a Seychelles hater who said that Seychelles is ugly JUST BECAUSE she's African.
And being half African, that made me just die inside--
