On September 11th 1973, US-backed General Pinochet overthrew the democratically elected leader of Chile, Salvadore Allende. Pinochet ordered an air strike on the Presidential Palace, labor activists and famous folk guitarists were rounded up for torture, disappeared, and killed.

Pinochet converted the national football stadium into a detention facility like Guantanamo Bay. Chile’s economy was turned into a plantation for the 1%, as inequality and poverty skyrocketed under the imposed Milton Friedman-style economic model.

Over 40,000 Chileans became victims of Pinochet’s terror. In response, the Nixon administration committed more money, more training, more torture equipment.

The world didn’t begin on September 11th, 2001. Rather, for the first time in modern history, Americans were visited by the same violence the US has imposed since its creation.

In Chile, the US murdered tens of thousands and impoverished millions. This wasn’t America’s first foray in international terrorism, nor would it be the last.

The United States security state is a terrorist and a plague on the people of the world.

Let’s remember that USA did the same thing in Brazil, Argentina and other nations in South America. Brazil was pretty much the first South America country to have its president overthrown in the name of “American capitalist freedom”. The same excuse was used in other countries that had their democratic governments annihilated in the name of security of the American economic model.

Let’s remember that good part of dictatorships implanted in Latin America happened during the epic years of the Cold War. The truth is that the USA couldn’t allow another Cuba in the american continent. The USA government would do anything, even sending their ambassador to spy brazilian president (whom the USA believed to be a “threat to their interests” and a comunist) and create campaigns against the then president João Goulart.

Let’s remember the name of this ambassador: Lincoln Gordon. There are several evidences and documents that prove his participation in the manipulation of brazilian media to denigrate Goulart’s image.

Let’s remember that USA actually sent money to help the campaigns against the president, money enough to create an institution called IPES, whose campaigns led to mobilization of own population against the president. The IPES literally manipulated and convinced good part of brazilian population (the other part who couldn’t be manipulated were tortured and killed when the dictatorship was implanted).

Let’s remember that million people were tortured, killed and are still missed in all the countries who had their autonomies and democracies crushed because USA wanted so. As a brazilian myself I could only tell a little about brazilian dictatorship (that lasted more than two decades), but even shoter dictatorships like Argentina’s were equally or more violent than the brazilian.

So please, educate yourself. Search ‘O Dia que Durou Vinte Anos’ and  learn more about the imperialist posture of the USA.

The real reason Mega Salamence is designed the way it is. It’s not bat themed but CLOSE ENOUGH. Pokemon by day and backup weapon by convenience.

what you fail to realize is that video games shouldn’t cater to females in the first place. It’s largely known that it’s targeted towards the MALE demographic and has been for so many years, so why would they ask for something like that to be handed to them on a goddamn silver platter?
that’s like a guy walking into the women’s department of clothing at a sears and demanding that there be more clothing for men there. Separation of sections be damned.
that’s not how it fucking works

no not really
the game industry is more like walking into a regular department store and seeing that all the clothes are only men’s clothes
and when you ask the cashier where the women’s clothing section is, they wheel out a small rack of cheaply made tutus, g-strings, and high heels all in bright pink
and then when you go “wow really that’s it” you get called an uppity bitch and everybody assumes you want all the focus on you when in reality you’d just like to be considered a worthwhile demographic since you also like to wear clothes, it’s not like you want some ridiculous getup, you just want a solid shirt and pair of pants that fits you alright.
I mean hell you even sort of like men’s clothes and you have no problem wearing them. They suit you well. But it’s very obvious once you throw on a pair of men’s pants that they were not made for you.

Perfect metaphor is perfect.
