such a needed campaign. i wish they’d have included native americans as well, though, as cultural appropriation of them in costumes is just as awfully common.
It’s that time of year again when these go around. And I will keep reblogging them. And if I see the joke ones I am likely to rip them apart with prejudice.
I will reblog this every year and unfollow anyone who posts joke fandom spinoffs of this very serious and important commentary.
“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”
~Plato’s The Symposium.
How many times will I reblog this? “Always.”
We did it at school. The myth also says that the pairings could be male/female, male/male or female/female (just sayin’)

Sometimes you don’t need to find someone else because your counterpart hasn’t incarnated in your time period…
Also I would say that this concept is less like splitting something in half and having two incomplete halves making a whole, but more like the concept of enantiomers in organic chemistry.
Two compounds that are mirror images, but are not super-imposable. Meaning they are complete and unique compounds, visually, but contain the same physical and chemical properties (except their rotational properties)
Kind of like this picture:
So your twin flame, is actually, functionally the same as you. With enough subtle differences to be a unique individual!
