See, I didn’t read it at all that his parents were afraid of him or afraid of what he might do – Owen pretty obviously treats him exactly as a teenage son would be anywhere else. He gives him chores, calls him on his shit, firmly reminds Luke that he needs to honor his commitments; yes, he’s holding him back from applying to the Academy, but I’m sure that’s in part because he doesn’t want Vader finding him. 

I asked Nakki “Wait, so how exactly DOES Vader know that Luke is his son?” and she said “Well he’s been running around the galaxy calling himself Luke Skywalker” which was a good point. I would imagine applying to the Imperial Academy under the name Skywalker is sooner or later going to draw some attention. 

I think Owen is afraid for Luke more than anything – when he’s afraid he’s like his father, I figure it means Luke is too curious and adventurous for his own good, and wants to be out in the world instead of staying safely at home. It reads (and always did read) more like the concern of a parent who wants what’s best for their child and knows that child is endangering themselves, not someone who is afraid of what that child might do to them.

No it wouldn’t. 

Not to pick on you specifically, but I’d just like to say this is a problem I encounter a lot on social media.

For some reason a lot of people feel like it would be “inappropriate” to step in to step up for Jews. I’m not even getting into Israel here (as an aside saying “but Israel” on a topic that’s not specifically about Israel is derailing and antisemitic), I mean Jews WITHOUT the subject of Israel being raised. We are told people don’t share Jewish concerns because they are concerned it would be overstepping. And yet I don’t see many of the same people being so cautious about other minorities and I don’t understand why. I’m sure I speak for many Jews when I say we are deeply frustrated by how hesitant people are to step up for us.

Just to give you an idea, one thing that stuck out to me was that when an antisemitic professor posted antisemitic conspiracy theories on her facebook wall at Oberlin College, professors had to be cojoled to anonymously make a generic anti-antisemitism statement. Anonymous! 

Do you have any idea how unsafe it makes us feel that tenured college professors at one of the most left-wing institutions in the country are afraid to even use their names when defending us?

Please. Speak up. And encourage others to do so. We feel very alone out here.

I came to tell Buffy to stop this craziness, and found you all unconscious again.

“well, child, it’s a brutal reminder of the time i was forced into the wizard hunger games because dumbledore can’t tell when there’s a death eater working at hogwarts”
