Some of the best alpine/woodland military camo is developed by the Swiss, but most of the rest of the world refuse to use it because it has pink and red splotches on it, making it look “unmanly.”

Honestly if you’d prefer to risk it for the sake of looking “manly” then you deserve to get shot.

"That couldn’t possibly work, Roman! Alpenflage is dumb and you’re dumb!”

DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT PLAY “WHERE’S WALDO” WITH THE SWISS

YOU WILL LOSE

This is fucking dumb as hell.

First off, those images don’t actually have anyone in them. You can zoom in and see for yourself. They’re low resolution images the OP took at a random forest. There are no other examples online. They circled something far enough away that you could never tell.

Lastly, that’s not how the pattern would work anyway. You’d still notice their silhouette, their helmet, and their gear unless it was some sort of ghillie suit (then it’s not even the same thing). That’s not to say the pattern doesn’t work but here’s the best example I could find.

image

If you notice, the pattern is designed for an autumn environment. It wouldn’t work elsewhere. That’s why other countries don’t use it. Not because it isn’t “masculine” or whatever bullshit Tumblr is trying to spin. That thing would be a bright bulls eye in Afghanistan.

Here’s an example of the camouflage we use (multicam):

Finally, other countries have in fact used splotches of red or shades of pink. The Nazis were the first to use one (it was called Leibermuster), which in turn became the foundation for the Swiss pattern shown above (Alpenflage/TAZ 83; you can tell by the name alone that it was designed with the Alps in mind, nowhere else). The Soviet Union and its successor states (Russia, Ukraine, etc.) have also used some really bizarre red camos.

At the end of the day, the Swiss changed the pattern to a more typical woodland green, brown, and black pattern in the ’90s (TAZ 90). So the whole argument is moot.

The only nation that services a red-coloured pattern is Oman and it’s stupid as fuck.

This is Wong Chin Foo. His name is now forgotten to the US mainstream, but his recorded legacy of brash, outspoken, irreverant pro-Chinese activism, in an era of unbridled anti-Chinese racism, stands as a monument of resistance. He was a 19th-century agitator who is believed to have coined the phrase “Chinese American” when he boldly emblazened those words across the banner of New York’s first Chinese newspaper which he founded in 1883.
Born in China in 1851, Wong Chin Foo came to the US in 1864 to study English. Because he arrived as a minor and lived in the US for more than 5 years, he was able to obtain naturalization papers in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in 1874, becoming one of the first people of Chinese descent to become a US citizen. He traveled across the US giving lectures on Chinese civilization, in which he proudly declared himself a heathen and suggested that Westerners should learn about religion themselves before sending missionaries to China. He called Jesus a “Johnny Come Lately” in contrast to the more ancient teachings of Confucius. He said, “I never knew that rats and puppies were good to eat until I was told by American people.”
Wong repeatedly showed up to heckle speeches by the anti-Chinese organizer Dennis Kearney, whose slogan “The Chinese must go!” was used to incite lynch mobs. Wong went so far as to challenge Kearney to a duel, offering to give the Irishman the choice of weapons: chopsticks, potatoes, or pistols. Kearney declined.
In 1893, Wong appeared before a US House Committee hearing to urge Congress to repeal the Chinese Exclusion Act (to no avail). He founded the Chinese Equal Rights League to demand the right to vote and to organize against Chinese Exclusion. Wong encouraged his fellow Chinese to refuse to carry the apartheid-like IDs which were required of them. In 1894, he organized a civil disobedience action in front of the Federal Building in Manhattan, resulting in the arrest of League member Fong Yue Ting. Like many other legal challenges to Chinese Exclusion, the case made it all the way to the Supreme Court, where Chinese Exclusion was upheld.
In the early 20th century, Wong supported the revolution in China and the overthrow of the Qing dynasty led by Sun Yat-Sen. After that, there is no more record of him. He disappeared, and nobody knows what became of him.

is this how christian couples takes baths together

I don’t understand why it needs the gender colored lighting….

straight people need reassurance at every step in their lives

no homo couple’s bathtub


It also looks super uncomfortable. What if you need to move your legs into a different position, or stretch out, or want to put all of your body under the water at once? Those aren’t bathtubs, those are cold sleep capsules for short people. Short people with severe concerns over gender roles.

Eddie your plan seems to have a flaw. You didn’t calculate your booty into the equation for it. Now Batman is gonna snatch it. Once again.

This looks way too much like the lead-up to porn for me to be comfortable with.
