So, as mentioned in the original post, I already knew the swastika was a religious symbol pre Nazis taking it & ‘demonizing’ it for all intents & purposes; however, I didn’t know all the specifics of its origin either. Thanks to this sis (Nagzilla) I was enlightened (pretty much literally) with this invaluable piece of info.:
“Even if they haven’t seen that particular anime, if they are educated in any way on Asian/Japanese culture, they’ll know that the points are facing the other direction, indicating the Buddhist version of the symbol. The Buddhist version pre-dates the Nazi bastardization by many millenia. If you need to explain it, you can, but you shouldn’t have to. Hopefully people are smart enough to tell the difference. If anyone’s ever been to Japan, they have the original version EVERYWHERE at Buddhist temples…”
To help further that point:
And here’s the Nazi swastika:
There’s even this helpful comparison I found via Google image search:
Notice how they look completely different from each other, but if you’re either an idiot, weeaboo, or a combination thereof you might make that mistake?
So, essentially, with this cosplay & info. I now have the excuse to potentially be a total b*tch to a potential ignorant d*uche…excellent ;3
