So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…


Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.


Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:  Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).  Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).  Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).  Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).  Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).  Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).  Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).  Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).  Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).  Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).  Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).  You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.

To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.

This is cool

wannabanauthor asked:

Hell, I'm writing a high fantasy novel, and I was wondering if I could actually use the words "bisexual" and "transgender prince" in novel. The words seem pretty modern to me, and I was considering making a fantasy word equivalent and having the definitions in the index of the book. Do you have any suggestions?

thewritingcafe answered:

Here are some tips:

FICTIONAL LANGUAGE

If you have created a fictional language, go ahead and create fictional words for these terms. Our terms might not be culturally appropriate anyway, depending on your world.

For example, a culture might have different words for someone who is a bisexual male and someone who is a bisexual female. Therefore, you could create two different words.

However, when it comes to creating fictional words, it’s good to be clear on what they mean. As an example, I’ll use the word “allromnilo” to mean “bisexual male” and “allromnelu” to mean “bisexual female”. Refer to bisexual males as “allromnilo” enough times and in the right context (when talking about relationships, who they are attracted to, etc.) to show the reader what this word means. Do the same thing for “allromnelu”.

You can take it further by switching the order to show preference. A bisexual woman with a preference for women would therefore be called “romallnelu”. A gender neutral option to our bisexual alternative could be “allromnol”.

Here are all the words so far:

  • Allromnilo - bisexual male
  • Allromnelu - bisexual female
  • Allromnol - bisexual
  • Romallnelu - bisexual female, preference for women

These words are all pretty similar, so if you do something like this is might be easier to create words that are not so similar or to create fewer words. You can put a dictionary in the back, but it’s still important to give context within the text alone.

POSSIBLE ISSUES

It’s not bad to create words like this (especially since many cultures have different ways of describing stuff like this), but it’s so rare to find characters just outright say what they are in a situation that is not a big coming out moment.

It’s especially rare to find someone say they’re bisexual. There’s always some speech about how it “doesn’t matter what this person likes and blah blah blah let’s not put labels on it”, which erases bi/pan people and which also allows people to avoid talking about a subject that makes them somewhat uncomfortable.

So it’s not bad to use fictional words, but it’s good to use real words to break down the taboo that surrounds them.

BUT DO MODERN WORDS DISTRACT FROM MY WORLD?

Maybe. Maybe not. It really comes down to whether it feels “right” in your world or not and whether you could see your characters casually using these terms.

FUN FACT: These eggs are evil. Octopus babies are evil. Let me tell you why. The octopus mother lays her eggs in a cave roof and spends 6 months guarding them from potential predators and swaying the eggs with her tentacle so they get oxygen. This means she doesn’t eat or sleep until they hatch. When the octopus babies hatch, she dies from fatigue and starvation. THEN THEY FUCKING EAT HER. THEY EAT THEIR MOTHER WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING AFTER THEM. THEY. EAT. HER.

this sounds like what my mother said i did to her

This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

Family guy is really shitty and self-righteous while misogynistic and uhh yeah no

Family Guy is literally a show about a toxic household with an abusive father portrayed as comedy. I have been trying for the longest time to figure out what bothers me about that show so much for so long. Thank you.
