In fact, even after the seat of Imperial power was moved to Tokyo in 1868, since there is no law which makes Tokyo the capital, there is a view that Kyoto legally or officially remains the capital even today.
The emperor was incensed at his audacity and proclaimed that because only Takamura was able to read the scroll, he must have been the one who put it up in the first place. Takamura however pleaded his innocence, saying that he was simply deciphering the meaning of the scroll. The emperor said, “Oh, so you can decipher any writing, can you?” and asked Takamura to read a row of twelve...
books used to be written in “classical languages” like latin (for europe) or old chinese (for japan and the orient)… then they were written in less recondite but still beautiful and high-sounding language… now they’re all written in colloquial language, or at least language that anyone with an elementary education can understand, aren’t they?

i watched a new science fiction picture show tonight at the cinema. it cost me 20 dollars to get in. the experience was a huge buffet of overwhelming absurdity. i was constantly gaping and gawking, dumbfounded… at the posters on the walls, the scores of huge cardboard displays for pixar- and dreamworks-animated things, the trailers for comedy movies starring the same jonah hills and steve...

Mother. Fucking. “Transethnics”. #YOU’RE WHITE #ACCEPT THAT i don’t understand why people are so down on “transethnicism” but think anyone who doesn’t support “transgenderism” is considered a degenerate. don’t you all see how the “slippery slope” works? you’ve got to stop it before it starts, don’t you? blame yourself for...
Hi Jun! A close friend of mine is trans-species too (zie prefers that term over “otherkin”), and manifests as a transethnic, transgender canine. Specifically, hir human body is inhabited by a female Akita who identifies as a male Rottweiler. Hir dysphoria occurs in multiple nested levels, since hir true self is trapped in a false body that is trapped inside another. I just wanted to...
I suffer not only the pain of being disabled, but I have to deal with crap doctors, trying to get disability, and dealing with discrimination— wait, discrimination against disabled persons? i forgot that concept exists. why is that a problem, again? people not hiring people who have physical disabilities that do not allow them to perform the job as well as others? that’s a problem?...

I am legally blind and Lebanese by birth (I also happen to be transgender, so I do understand transgender identities), and I can’t help but think that I would feel a little bit offended by a white bodied and seeing person who identifies as a legally blind Indian person. Is this wrong? How...
