ALWAYS REBLOG.

iT GOT BETTER

GRrrrrr.

1) White-knuckled death-grip on the bow. Relax. It’s not going to wander off on its own.

2) Distracted by something just off to the right of the target, probably the camera operator. Unconventional draw - it’s more common to have all three fingers under the nock when shooting barebow. Otherwise not bad.

3) Leaning away from the target. Also, that arrow is a good four inches too long for your arm and you are drawing too far in order to compensate (which I guess might be because both bow and arrow were made for someone taller; I haven’t seen this film)

4) No. Even assuming we forget about the fact that you’re holding the bow at a stupid angle, you have managed to get your hair and your sleeve in the way of the string. Plus, you are ducking your head to look down the arrow rather than bringing the nock up against your head.

5) Again, no. Even ignoring the angle, your arrow is upside down, so you are going to shear the cock feather off on the bow.

6) STOP HOLDING YOUR BOW AT AN ANGLE OR SO HELP ME I’M GOING TO COME DOWN THERE AND FEED IT TO YOU. Also your posture is, in a word, dismal.

7) Your draw is frankly bizarre, your anchor point doesn’t actually seem to be touching your face, but more to the point that bow is designed to be held in your other hand. Your magical arrow is going to end up gloriously smiting the far wall.

8) Go home you’re drunk. Let’s pretend for a moment that you only have one arrow. In which case, you are still anchoring against thin air.

9) …but you’re doing better than this guy, who has his anchor point against his right nipple. Magic arrow or not, how are you planning to aim, exactly?

10) Actually pretty good, at least by comparison to the clown college further up the page. Anchor point is too low for barebow and too far out for freestyle, but not drastically so, I was shooting like that a week ago and I still managed to hit things.

11) I would dearly love to know what you think you’re doing with that left hand. Pointing at the target will not help. Also, you’re leaning backwards, but that might just be the camera’s fault

12) Ok, at first I thought this was terrible - arrow on the wrong side of the bow, draw too far back, very peculiar grip with the right hand - then I did a bit more reading and concluded that actually, the fox is using a Mongolian draw. It’s certainly unconventional, but then, he IS a fox. Maybe it works well for him.

In summary, #2, #10, and #12 have got it. #1, #3, and #11 have at least wounded it. The others have got an innocent bystander.

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.

This should be required learning, internationally. 

You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten. 

Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now. 

Make it stop

I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.

My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable. 

I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and our current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph 175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph 175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.

You must remember this!!!

Our History.

Go watch the documentary “Paragraph 175”, where 5 of the survivors who were still alive in 2000 were interviewed.

You expect us to learn this when we never even learned that the Nazis persecuted anyone other than Jewish people? Literally the only reason I know that is I read “The Other Victims”

don’t you hate it when you’re reading a chapter and then it’s coming to its climax and omg what’s gonna happen, then woops, your eyes dart to the last line and you spoil yourself and hate yourself for it

this is why, in particularly intense reading situations, i physically put my hand over the bottom of the page so i can’t accidentally spoil myself.

i take this shit seriously.
