i really do miss studying judaism but it also breaks my heart a little - like even though i want to convert that seems almost impossible for me for the foreseeable future
as an older sibling, seeing the vode in so much pain makes me terrified (mm trauma responses)
it scares me how young they all are, and even though its a fictional universe, for their situations and having to grow up too fast
watching the last ep made me cry real tears for all the little siblings that i know i never could have cared for
Others: “What country are you from? You don’t look German:”
Me: “I’m portuguese.”
Others: “Aren’t portuguese people dark?”
EVERY SINGLE TIME - No, people we aren’t all dark. In fact in the north of Portugal we are pretty damn white and even blonde.
Please, don’t ask Iberians - or Mediterraneans for that matter - why they aren’t dark. We aren’t all dark, even if we can trace our Iberian and Mediterranean heritage generations back. I know that many really don’t know it, but please - can we get rid of false stereotypes? Thank you.
