I honestly feel so bad for the innocent North Korean Citizens
MEANWHILE, let’s discuss some reality.
For many years, all teachers in NorK had to play the accordion. It was a requirement. I am not making that up.
Haircuts are government approved. There is not a very long list.
Entire families will disappear in the dead of night, spirited away to prison camps. To drive this point home: When Kim Jong Ill died, not mourning him properly was enough to be sentenced like that.
Malnutrition and starvation are so rampant that the average NorK is six inches shorter than the average South Korean.
Do the citizens deserve any of it? No. They asked for none of this. They’re human. They’re also entirely brainwashed. It is Jonestown on the scale of a country.

And here is the testimony of an escapee from NorK who worked at a prison camp. Not for the weak of stomach or will, here’s a sample.
Many prisoners died from hard work, poor treatment, and beatings. The dead bodies were often buried under the fruit trees in the prison orchard. The fruits (apples, pears, peaches, and plums) from the Kaechon orchard have earned a reputation for their large size and sweet taste. They are reserved for senior party and police officials.
On one occasion, 150 corpses were rolled up in straw mats and buried under the fruit trees. The families were never informed and the bodies can no longer be identified.
Welcome to North Korea.
YES THIS IS FOREVER WHAT I’VE BEEN TRYING TO GET EVERY ONE OF MY FRIENDS TO UNDERSTAND GEEZUS.
I don’t really get what the initial purpose of this photoset was. Yeah, of course North Koreans are people too; that doesn’t make their their government any less despicable. Was the OP thinking “oh, well Kim Jong-Un isn’t so bad, look at these smiling Koreans! :)”
a poem i made using snippets of messages i’ve received on OKCupid
Too much genius
The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in 1979. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, who was a professional photographer, was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared film, black and white, throughout the night. There are literally rolls of film with nothing on them. There’s only one picture of the little boy.
is there something hidden in the picture?? it’s stressin me out
Look at the open door on the left right above the guard rail.
I only got through 30 seconds of this shit.
He also has a video on abortion where his entire argument is “WHAT IF JOHNNY CASH OR ELVIS HAD BEEN ABORTED?!”
Via Should you wear that fedora?
1. Ignore everyone.
2. Eat lunch in the library while ignoring everyone with your weird friends.
3. Don’t participate in clubs that make it necessary to talk to people.
4. Instead of hanging with friends after school, paint and read comics.
5. Graduate by the skin of your teeth.
Sounds about right…
I can be persuaded that ‘feminism’ means ‘equality’, but not that ‘equality’ means ‘feminism’.Feminism does not have a monopoly on equality any more than communism does. It may be one of the movements advocating equality, but that does not make it necessary. In many cases, it is not even sufficient.
Even if not-all-feminists-are-like-that, you have to acknowledge that at least some are. Some feminists really want equality, some don’t. Some people who really want equality are feminists, some aren’t. If there can be bad people inside your movement, there can be good people outside of it. Don’t judge on labels.
Yeah, but if you don’t consider yourself a feminist, please do explain to all of the women in your life why you think they don’t deserve equal rights.
You’re joking, yes?
I don’t get why people get so fixated on a label. Apparently what you believe in isn’t important, it’s what you call yourself. Refusing to call yourself a feminist doesn’t mean you don’t agree with a lot of it,I know I certainly do. However, some people simply refuse to group themselves with feminists because they acknowledge that there’s some harmful views that some feminists hold. As long as people are supporting the right things, what’s the issue? Why is it so important they accept the label? It’s as if people think it’s a slight towards women to not identify as a feminist…
