I was watching the new episode this morning and when Steven talked about his mother I immediately had this picture in my head so I made a quick sketch :3
Armenian women depicted in paintings and illustrations.

it’s there if you look for it. look at the period of time from 1890 forward. there were armenian anarchists / rebels raiding into the failing Ottoman empire with assistance from Russia. Russia wanted Istanbul and after WWI broke out, so did the Brits.
after the war, what is now modern Turkey was occupied by Greeks and Armenians, taking land, raping and killing.
I’m not saying that Armenians were not killed. I’m saying that they were not killed - out of the blue. nothing happens in a vacuum. and the christian nations of Russia (pre-revolution) and Britain/Greece were quite eager to take the muslim anatolia.
it was these occupying forces that Ataturk drove out in order to create Turkey from the remnants of the Ottoman empire.
but where are your sources
i’m not dumb. i read a lot on this subject. never once have i heard of widespread massacres of turks (by armenians. i don’t know as much about greece.)
i’ve tried googling “armenians killing turks” but random forum sites featuring the opinions of @TurkishWarrior1 really don’t constitute fact.
please point me to a source
(furthermore, armenians and greeks never “occupied” anatolia. they’re indigenous, and in the modern era have never headed a nation in anatolia proper.)
LOOOL, Armenians were occupying Anatolia!? You’ve got to be kidding me! The Armenian race started in Eastern Anatolia! I thought even genocide deniers knew that!
And yes there were Armenian rebel groups most namely the “Dashnaks.” But please stop using them to justify genocide.
The total number of Assyrians, Greeks, and Armenians that died between the late 1800s to the early 1900s was 3,500,000. This is not even counting the hundreds of thousands that were deported. Yes I get it, Armenians have killed Turks (mainly in acts of revenge), but there is a HUGE difference between that and genocide.
Also, 99% of historians agree that the Armenians suffered a genocide and I don’t think they’re not getting that “out of the blue” either.
The person who invented the word “genocide” cited what happened to the Armenians as an example of it. Honestly, how arrogant do you have to be to deny it after that!?
He’s missing his scarf. There is going to be a Mako centric episode in which the characters have to go on a quest to find it, isn’t there?
Of course there is, should’ve renamed it Legend of Mako.
Yeah, then at least they’d be honest about the fact this show is not at all about Korra and really is all about him.
Prayer circle this is just the Krew reacting to Naga wearing his scarf and the quest lasts 5 seconds.
The comtesse d’Artois gave birth on the sixth at three forty-five as easily as possible … I spent the entire time in her room: I need not tell my dear Mama how I suffered in seeing an heir who isn’t mine; but I still managed not to forget any attention due to the mother and child.

Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.

Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M
While you’re at it don’t dress up as pirates either because pirates are not a costume. Pirates are not a trend. Pirates are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve.
I say we just ban costumes over all so we don’t offend any group of people, because we all know; If you are offended, you’re always in the right.
