I wonder how they’d phrase it if they were doing a presentation about Christianity. ‘We’re going to tell the story of Noah - it’s just like a fairy tale!’ Nothing bothers me more when non-Judeo-Christian religious texts aren’t given due respect.
That’s exactly what made me so angry. I felt like both that comment and the Hindi/Hindu thing showed a lack of respect for the religion and the culture that’s formed around it. The mispronunciation of words, the conflating all of India with North India, the EXTREMELY cursory overview of the entire thing, all of that I could have forgiven. But not even knowing the correct way to refer to “people who follow Hinduism”?
Also the comment ‘many Hindus are vegetarian because they think cows are sacred and bring peace’. No, cows are important because they provide a lot more for families when alive than they do when dead.
…wow, I am apparently a lot angrier about this presenter than I realized. The assistant who booked her commented to me that I should consider having her for one of my programs. Don’t think that’s going to happen.

Maybe this is silly of me to expect, but I feel like, if you are a person who works in an Asian studies organization at a university and does presentations to K-12 kids around the community on various South/Southeast/East Asian countries, you should probably not be confusing ‘Hindi’ with ‘Hindu’. They are slightly different.
Also something you should not do? Explain the great Hindu epics by saying ‘they are like fairy tales!’. No. No, they are not like fairy tales. They’re religious stories. Like, the Bhagavad Gita? KINDA important to Hinduism. Just a bit. Not something to be dismissed as ‘just a fairy tale’.

Redditor MsSandwichMaker’s son and their kitten go about their daily lives… side-by-side at all times. Devotion never looked so cute.

I don’t know why Frank insisted on bringing me to this dinner party, I don’t even know what to talk about and everyone’s already having a conversation, it’d be awkward to butt in. A steakhouse? Really? I’m a pescetarian, Frank. We’ve known each other ten years. Nobody’s even bothered to comment on my coat or offered a tummy rub. Your friends are shit, Frank.

"Don’t you think it would be cool if Falcon was also in Avengers 2?"
I would dance the dance of joy. I would dance the goddamn Mamushka. I would DO A JIG on top of Mount Coot-tha while wearing some kind of home-made Falcon t-shirt.
I’m just saying.
I want Steve to just show up at Avengers Tower like, “He comes with me.”
And Tony is just kind of like, “Okay, sure,” because he’s heard about Sam from Hill, and so Sam ends up on Steve’s floor in another apartment, and when Tony realizes that Sam’s wings came from Stark Industries he spends a few days mechanically Bedazzling the fuck out of them, while Sam and Tony debate the merits of classic rock versus R&B.
(And then there’s the time Cap shows up with Bucky and says, “He also comes with me,” and Tony just sort of sighs and hands him keys to that other apartment on Steve’s floor, because he’s quickly learned that some Avengers have a bad habit of bringing home other superpowered freaks like they’re lost puppies or something, like that time Clint showed up with a brunette and a dog and didn’t even bother to ask for keys to the other apartment on his floor, just picked the lock instead.)
