AB Positive Blood Anti-Discrimination Posters: “Changing Minds, Changing Lives”
seriously guys its 2014, this needs to stop.
i don’t get it.is this a joke, or are people really discriminated against because of their blood type? maybe I need more sleep to determine the answer.
Considering the source is liartownusa, it is definitely a joke.
However, making a big deal about blood type is a thing in Japan, where it is seen as indicative of one’s personality on a cultural fluff level. That’s why you see a lot of video games with large casts and profile pages for each (such as Street Fighter II) list the characters’ blood types in their stats next to height, weight, age, etc., as if that was information people needed or cared about. And yeah, people with the “wrong” blood type being picked on, broken up with, overlooked for employment opportunities, etc. happens. To get an equivalent sense of the combination of whimsical cultural fluff with real negative repercussions, imagine if horoscopes were such a pervasive thing that it became legitimately difficult for Capricorns to find a job.
So basically liartownusa was being silly (as usual), but (probably completely by accident) touched on something that actually is real elsewhere in the world.
Yeah I was going to say, the Japanese are really serious about blood types and it’s REALLY WEIRD
