Russia…do you think your in a movie?
China’s got this guys.
Run Romano! Run!
PUT THAT SHIT INTO OGREDRIVE
Then, this one soldier who just wanted a cool photograph gets murdered by terrorists that are specifically targeting Tony Stark.
This was the moment that made Tony Stark reevaluate his entire life.
This was the moment that made Tony Stark cut the weapons program.
This was the moment that Tony Stark became Iron Man.
This was the moment that never truly left him.
Because it’s after this moment that Tony Stark proceeds to spend the rest of his life making peace-signs in photos, in honor of a young man who was more of a man than Tony could’ve ever dreamt of being; whose death Tony spent months agonizing over and trying to ensure wasn’t in vain.
Can you not what are you doing to my feels why are you always doing this.
this has too many notes.
I’ve had enough.
I have a friend named Kaitlan: she’s beautiful and kind and is a great cosplayer, and she’s been getting these slipped under her apartment door for months.
I asked her if I could make this post because I’ve been seeing this happening and I just want something to be done. Whether it’s people supporting her or someone telling her how to get this to stop. How to get these people to get the punishment they deserve.
She has literally done anything that she knows to do. She even went to the police:
They told her to come back if it got more serious. What does that even MEAN? Apparently, someone has to actually kill themselves for this to be serious to the police.
Apparently, this behavior is acceptable at Indiana University of PA. Apparently, this behavior is acceptable to the Indiana County Police. Apparently, bullying like this is completely acceptable until someone ends up dead.
I’m just absolutely infuriated right now. This should not go unpunished. Absolutely fucking not.
THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION!
The card features a photo of a Muslim doll with a Hijab (headscarf) that many Muslim women wear out of religious observance. The The talking bubbles placed on top of the doll’s photo read, “The Talking Doll, Pull string for message, if you dare,” and “She’ll Love You To Death! She’ll Blow Your Brains Out!” The inside of the card reads “Hope your birthday is a BLOW OUT!”
The card is produced by NobleWorks Inc. with credit for its design given to “Ron Kanfi” according to the company’s website, www.nobleworkcards.com. The motto of the company printed under their logo on the back of the card is “modern cards for modern people.”
Notice that nothing identifies this doll as a terrorist in the minds of the card designers other than that she wears a Hijab. Moreover, she – like many Muslim girl who choose to wear the Hijab – is a smiling, non-threatening normal-looking female wearing a pink Hijab and a flower-patterned dress. The unmistakable message behind the “humor” is that even the most peaceful looking Muslims are synonymous and exchangeable with terrorists.
To make matters more disturbing, the card is based on an actual doll designed by Desi Doll Company (www.desidollcompany.com) called “Aamina, the Muslim Doll.” The doll teaches kids religious greetings and sayings in Arabic with messages like “Assalamu Alaikum is the Muslim greeting, and it means peace be upon you” and “Let’s play together insha’Allah, insha’Allah means if God wills it.”
Contact the makers of the greetings card and let them know that you do NOT think that stereotyping Muslim women and girls is OK. Ask them if they would get a chuckle out of their daughters growing up exposed to messaging that criminalizes their basic identity for profit. (CAIR-Chicago has written an official letter to the company sharing its concerns.)
As always, be firm and polite.

It’s your right to not like this. It’s their right to make whatever the Fuck they want. Personally. I see humor in everything. I’m so sick of super sensitive fucks, you people were catered to too much as children and think your opinions matter. It’s a big world and not everything in it is made to please you. Freedom of speech assholes
I am so glad that you think this is funny.
Based on your comment, I gather you have NEVER been the victim of racism or discrimination, because if you were, would not respond the way you have.
Freedom of speech is one thing, but targeting a certain group of people in THIS FASHION is not delivering any type of message.
It’s not catering to anyone — it’s being a civil human being and respecting difference. What this message here does? It portrays Muslim women as violent, homicidal-minded individuals. It takes a belief system of people around the world and minimizes it to what people have come to perceive as terrorism.
When YOU start wearing the Hijab and YOU have someone roll down his window and spit at your car, THEN YOU MAY FIND THIS FUNNY.
When YOU have to get extensive searches at the airport, YOU MAY FIND THIS FUNNY.
When YOU ARE THE VICTIM OF A HATE CRIME PERPETUATED BY THESE IMAGES, THEN YOU MAY FIND THIS FUNNY.
UNTIL THEN, STOP LAUGHING. Because YOU are not the target and you don’t have to face the repercussions of images like THESE.
i fucking hate people
