Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”
Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.
"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”
DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS
YOU WILL LOSE
This is fucking dumb as hell.
First off, those images don’t actually have anyone in them. You can zoom in and see for yourself. They’re low resolution images the OP took at a random forest. There are no other examples online. They circled something far enough away that you could never tell.
Lastly, that’s not how the pattern would work anyway. You’d still notice their silhouette, their helmet, and their gear unless it was some sort of ghillie suit (then it’s not even the same thing). That’s not to say the pattern doesn’t work but here’s the best example I could find.
If you notice, the pattern is designed for an autumn environment. It wouldn’t work elsewhere. That’s why other countries don’t use it. Not because it isn’t “masculine” or whatever bullshit Tumblr is trying to spin. That thing would be a bright bulls eye in Afghanistan.
Here’s an example of the camouflage we use (multicam):
Finally, other countries have in fact used splotches of red or shades of pink. The Nazis were the first to use one (it was called Leibermuster), which in turn became the foundation for the Swiss pattern shown above (Alpenflage/TAZ 83; you can tell by the name alone that it was designed with the Alps in mind, nowhere else). The Soviet Union and its successor states (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) have also used some really bizarre red camos.
At the end of the day, the Swiss changed the pattern to a more typical woodland green, brown, and black pattern in the ’90s (TAZ 90). So the whole argument is moot.
The only nation that services a red-coloured pattern is Oman and it’s stupid as fuck.
Yet another ‘controversy’ that tumblr has completely fabricated.
You fucking people.
isn’t this from What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, in which a severely mentally disabled teenage boy from a poverty stricken family with the mental age of a five year old is having a severe anguished meltdown?
Of course feminists would find this something to gloat about
Yes, this is from What’s Eating GIlbert Grape, which is one of my favorite movies BECAUSE of the fact that there’s a severely mentally-disabled boy, as well as the acting performed by Leo. This is sick. This “male tears” ~~~**movement**~~~ is absolutely disgusting, and this is a new low, in my eyes.
Somebody took a depiction of a disabled child having a breakdown
And slapped ‘male tears’ onto it
Can anyone confirm these?
Checked the bottom one quickly:
like i know you’re trying desperately to gain pussy and cool points from reblogging a ~feminist thing~ every so often but when ur with your boys its a constant stream of misogyny & rape jokes and we seeeeee you
Just right off the bat assuming most boys are default rapists and misogynist when they’re not being carefully policed by their female overlords?
Way to win brownie points.
shut your pie hole, Liv
How is that in any way an appropriate way to demonstrate a point? Someone shit in your rainbows today, pumpkin?
And rotten eggs sink, science!
you know what really pisses me off?
when people are heterophobic
if you are being oppressed, why oppress
it’s completely hypocritical and it doesn’t make you the better person
you are both being oppressive and not getting us any closer to equality
heterophobia may be mean, but it is not oppression. oppression requires power, and lgbt people have none over cishet people.
Oppression does require power and if you want to murder someone it helps to have a weapon.
Michael has a pistol… Gary has a Knife…. Scott tells us its impossible for Gary to kill Michael because he refuses to recognize the knife as a weapon and so exorts Michael to stand down, put his pistol away, and talk things out.
Michael agrees and puts away his pistol. At which point Gary slits Michael’s fucking throat.
Scott, being a fucking moron, tells us that what we just witnessed never actually happened because Gary never actually had a weapon. Because Michael had a pistol and it was so much more powerful than Gary ’ s weapon that it just never made any sense to acknowledge that Gary ever had a weapon at all.
And if Gary never had a weapon how would it even be possible for him to murder someone?
Scott thinks about these things while Michael chokes to death on his blood and bits of larynx.
Scott concludes that Michael must have murdered himself. It’s the only reasonable solution.
So there has been some misinformation that the raid/war/what-have-you between tumblr and 4chan was started by /pol/. Although it is correct that some elements of 4chan attempted a hoax against tumblr three years ago, there is no clear evidence that this was a second attempt. Nor have I seen any sources which would clearly suggest that it is. Claims that this was started by /pol/ are mere assertions based on personal perception - only circumstantial evidence can be adduced to support them (e.g. the date of the planned attack), all of which can be as easily explained as SJW’s mistaking the hoax for something legitimate.
I have browsed the /pol/ archives (you can too) and /pol/ itself and found no posts in which an attack is planned. I have only found these two posts talking about attacking tumblr: this one and this one - neither of which discuss any orchestration of a raid. I have even done ctrl-f searches of all of the archives for words like tumblr, create account, fake account, false account, and even just account and reading the surrounding text. I have found zero evidence this started in /pol/. I have done a similar thing on /b/ and its archives and have only found this post from June 10th after tumblr accounts were made. Even reddit only hears about after the 10th.This was posted in /pol/ later in June. 4chan did make an attempt to interfere with shutdown4chan by creating a fake twitter with misleading information, the next day a second was created this time by an author claiming to be the real person behind it. This sequence of events directly suggests that the anti-4chan movement had elements operating independently of any trolls.And taking a look through their twitter
We can see that if this is a troll they are doing a masterful job. June 16th is when #shutdown4chan started trending on twitter. /pol/ takes notice, /b/ continues posting porn and takes no notice (I have searched the posts between June 14th and June 18th and found no mention).Here we can see 4chan preparing for the “raid”. And here we can see one of the archived threads. It’s business as usual for 4chan.Was the “raid” successful? By no means, the people who went there from tumblr had no idea what they were doing or how the threads work, only three threads were created that I have discovered. That much, at least, is accurate (typical for SJ/feminist types, there is some connection to reality, however minimal and distorted). The “attack on 4chan” was a dismal display, and members of /b/ were in some cases shocked to learn that they had been “raided.” Here is the general sentiment of /b/ towards the raid nonetheless:
After this exhaustive search that has taken me most of the day, I find no proof that it started outside of tumblr. If one looks at the events of this year: bikini bridge, free bleeding, end father’s day, ect. it does not take any measure of extrapolation to conclude that feminists would attempt to retaliate against 4chan and try to get it shut down. It is not unusually insane by the standards of this website, and if one goes through the notes on shutdown, one finds as much credence from the SJW crowd as incredulity.Now, Poe’s Law inevitably has a role in all of this. Because this is the internet and we are dealing with 4chan, there is a possibility that it was just a 4chan troll (a particularly exceptional one, that is). Poe’s Law rules supreme here on tumblr. It is next to impossible to discern the satirists from those who are serious, especially when it comes to feminism and feminists here, who oftentimes look like parodies of themselves even while being deadly serious. But, after searching through and reading everything that shutdown4chan has posted across the web (even found a Steam account that I browsed through) I seriously doubt that this was the work of a 4chan troll trying to troll 4chan. Shutdown4chan has a coherent (at least to them) narrative that they do not deviate from, and the people who like and reblogged from shutdown, are all people that one would assume would latch onto a movement like this (genderfluid 15 year olds and all).In other words: Tumblr started this battle. This was a failed attempt at retaliation after the antics of 4chan throughout the past year. The result is what you have seen in the tags, and, considering 4chan’s history, it was a very minor demonstration at that.
