STOP trying to prove that you’re not “slutty” like other girls and that’s why you deserve respect from boys

ALL girls deserve respect and their sex lives and sexual histories have absolutely NOTHING to do with the level of respect they deserve

STOP trying to set yourself apart from other girls, we are all in this together and we NEED to support each other

What, are we taking everybody?

the reason that this line is significant is because jim morita was a japanese-american soldier. while it’s never explicitly stated, here’s what morita’s life would have been like before being captured by HYDRA:

  • december 7, 1942:  the empire of japan attacked pearl harbor. he was probably a soldier at this time since he was considered to be elite enough for steve’s squad; unknown where he served, although there were many japanese-american soldiers who died in and who were the first responders to the attack.
  • december 8, 1942:  the us declares a state of war with japan.
  • all japanese-american men disqualified from the draft via the label “4-C,” or “enemy alien,” no matter their citizenry. all japanese-american men in the service are removed from duty.
  • february 19, 1942:  president roosevelt signed executive order 9066, authorizing the military to exclude certain groups from military zones.
  • the fbi searched the homes of japanese-americans for “contraband,” including correspondence with anyone in japan such as personal letters. any such contraband is confiscated.
  • (fun sidenote:  how did they know where to find these people so that they could be harassed? well, gosh, the census bureau told them. illegally. no big deal.)
  • community leaders, including priests, gathered up and sent to prison camps like tule lake. this is also where several families were sent to be deported to japan since they were not deemed loyal enough.
  • 122,000 people of japanese-american descent are told to sell or store their property as they can only bring what they can carry out of the “exclusion zones,” which meant most of the west coast. (hawaii, whose population was about a quarter japanese, was for the most part not included in this.) given only a few weeks to organize their lives, they were then sent via cattle train to concentration camps set up throughout the us.
  • since morita was from fresno, he would have ended up here:
    charming.
  • sunny poston, arizona. conveniently built on an indian reservation against the wishes of the tribal council, who wanted nothing to do with the government’s white supremacist bullshit. why only infringe on the rights and wishes of one minority group, right?
  • choice quote:   ”After fifteen months at Arizona’s vast Poston Relocation Center as a social analyst, Commander Leighton concluded that many an American simply fails to remember that U.S. Japanese are human beings.”
  • shortly after arriving, all prisoners were asked to fill out a survey. most of the questions would be simple, like their name, city of birth, etc, but questions 27 and 28 were different.
  • question 27:  Are you willing to serve in the armed forces of the United States on combat duty, wherever ordered?
  • question 28:  Will you swear unqualified allegiance to the United States of America and faithfully defend the United States from any and all attacks by foreign and domestic forces, and forswear any form of allegiance or disobedience to the Japanese Emperor, or any other foreign government, power, or organization?
  • did you answer yes to both? congratulations! you’re a soldier. did you answer no to both? perhaps you’re too old or sick to serve? perhaps the general fuckery of this entire situation got you down? perhaps you were born outside of the us, so you can’t disavow your country of origin since there is a very real chance you’ll be deported? haha well congratulations hope you like prison and/or deportation
  • so all of this goes on
  • and then morita goes on to serve
  • and get captured
  • and rescued
  • and dumbass doogan says, “what, are we taking everybody?”
  • fuck you
  • i’m from fresno

IMPORTANT SO IMPORTANT.

I don’t know if Morita is canonically from the 442nd Infantry Regiment or not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he was (although I’m not sure if the dates match up); the 442nd was an almost entirely Japanese-American infantry regiment that was the most decorated American unit in ALL OF AMERICAN HISTORY because the members had so much to prove.  And they did this all while their families were in interment camps back in the States.  They served in the European theatre of war because the American government was afraid to send Japanese-American soldiers to the Pacific theatre because the U.S. government was full of racist jackasses during WWII.

This is my favorite line from the movie. (Possibly because of all the times I’ve been asked “Where are you from?” and answered “California”.)

I first heard of the 442nd Regiment from my dad, and I still get deeply, dorkishly excited every time I see them mentioned. Their motto was “Go for Broke”, and they were nicknamed the Purple Heart Battalion because of their record-setting medal count. A choice bit from wikipedia (emphasis mine):

On 12 November, General Dahlquist ordered the entire 442nd to stand in formation for a ceremony, and seeing K company’s 18 men and I company’s eight, demanded of Colonel Miller, “I want all your men to stand for this formation.” Miller responded, “That’s all of K company left, sir” (of 400, originally).

So where is THAT movie?

Yeah, the dates for Morita to be part of the 442nd don’t match up, and they don’t match up for the 100th Infantry Battalion, either, which was the other primarily US-born Nisei unit active in the European theater and had an even more dramatic formation history than the 442nd. Alternatively, the promo film that you see with Cap has, IIRC, a bit where he pretend-walks off to war with a black soldier behind him with a gun, so maybe we can make a case that in MCU, Executive Order 9981 was pre-WWII?  

My fave possibility is probably the idea that Morita was in the Military Intelligence Service, Operations Group. I don’t know how he ended up in the European theater if that happened, but GODDAMMIT I LIKE IT. And I like to think that post-Commandos, he went back to the MIS, but when Peggy got the gang together again, he left to join SHIELD because he wanted no fucking part of an organization that was involved in covering up rape and looting by US and Allied troops in occupied Japan.  

And because it deserves all the publicity, a movie did get made in 2006, and it was called Only the Brave.

He came in with two ukeleles and gave me one. ‘You gotta play this thing, it’s great! Let’s jam.’ I have no idea how to play a ukelele. ‘Oh, it’s no problem, I’ll show you.’ So we spent the rest of the day playing ukeleles, strolling around the yard. My wrist hurt the next day. But he taught me how to play it, and a lot of the chord formations. When he was going I walked out to the car and he said, ‘Well, wait… I want to leave some ukeleles here.’ He’d already given me one, so I said, ‘Well, I’ve got this.’ ‘No, we may need more.’ He opened his trunk and he had a lot of ukeleles in there, and I think he left four at my house. He said, ‘Well, you never know when we might need them, because not everybody carries one around.’

The difference between learning a modern language and an ancient language is that in first year French you learn “Where is the bathroom?” and “How do I get to the train station?” and in first year Attic Greek or Latin you learn “I have judged you worthy of death” and “The tyrant had everyone in the city killed.”

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.

Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.

So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.

This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.
