Warnings: ... good-natured Tibet-abuse? Um. lulz?
Notes: Inspired by this thread, which is a part of this larger thread of overall win on Tibet's journal. Also illustrated without permission >_> ::ducks into bomb shelter::
ETA!DISCLAIMER: Since it would seem that people are actually going back through all those posts and looking at this pic--
I'm quite familiar with Sino-Tibetan relations and history. In addition, my roommate is taking a course on Tibetan culture and all its trappings, and regales me with the interesting tidbits about how everything started off as a series of really lame misunderstandings from both sides. Plus the west. And then there's the whole Western ideology propaganda mucking everything else up.
This piece was meant to make fun of the entire culminating civil-rights hoopla surrounding the two atm. Satirizing a stereotype if you will. If you're offended by it, that's fine, expected even--seeing how it was done in a tongue-in-cheek manner over a really convoluted issue anyway. But realize that this is in no way intending to demonize China or victimize Tibet.
Dedication: For the awesome, awesome China-mun and Tibet-mun (Austria-mun gets an honorable mention too!) over at aphdressingroom. For their brilliant threads which always make me laugh (thereby making me even more of a Bad Person than I already am... OTL)
