so in case you didn’t know, abortion is illegal in ireland. there’s this horrible pro-life group called Youth Defence whose ad campaigns are unbelievably insensitive (and cite incorrect facts) and this was their latest shock tactic.
they parked their van in front of the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre.
let me say that again
THEY PARKED THEIR VAN IN FRONT OF THE DUBLIN RAPE CRISIS CENTRE.
when confronted about it, they tweeted this:
they also deleted their first tweet (“Our driver was stuck in traffic, we wern’t parked there, more lies from pro-aborts. #loveforall”)
I FEEL PHYSICALLY SICK. you evil fucking human beings.

Okay here’s the thing: maybe people of color were looked over, but THE ROLE WAS NOT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR
Holy shit he’s supposed to be a superhuman from India. He full name is literally Khan Noonien Singh. Are you a total fuckhead and should I expect you on my page every fucking day?

FORGETTING THE FACT THAT ABRAMS FRANCHISE IS SET IN AN ALTERNATE UNIVERSE TO THE ORIGINAL SERIES
I bet you didn’t know that the role was actually originally intended for Khan to actually be Nordic, so I think you will find that Benedict’s look is pretty much spot on for the role.
okay but did he fucking end up nordic no he was INDIAN
and that alternate universe theory is horse shit because then why is HIS race the only one that’s changed and no one else’s
enough you cumbertwats are horrible
India was once owned by Great Britain, remember. While most people think of the stereotypical Indian look or sound when they think of people from India, it is not uncommon to find people that look and sound completely British with Indian sounding names. Just because Benedict Cumberbatch is not what you expected, doesn’t mean that he isn’t right for the role.
Now, I haven’t seen the new Star Trek movie yet, so I can’t say how good he was or wasn’t in it, but don’t say he didn’t belong in the role because of the way he looks. It’s just as bad as saying someone didn’t get the role because they weren’t white. He is a fine actor, and probably got the role because he was the best for it. Or because he is extremely popular and they wanted to get fans of him to go see the movie.
Khan’s character is one of the .001% blonde-haired, blue-eyed European descendants of the Indian population.
Sweet merciful Jesus this is the greatest Khan thread.

Has nobody considered the fact that names aren’t genetic, and therefor have nothing to do with race or birthplace? Are we going to start whinging about people of color being named John, Jane, Troy, or Wendy? “Those names certainly don’t represent their genetic origin.” Furthermore, it’s fucking fiction! Characters who don’t exist can be named anything at all. Shush.
