Lao Advice for Falangs #2

Hey, we know you backpackers love to trek around Southeast Asia (especially Laos), on an adventure! And even more when you stumble upon the sleepy (well, used to be-) town of Vang Vieng, once a place famous for its scenery and limestone caves and ecotourism - Transformed into a party town nearly overnight. 

I hope you are aware the party town reputation is literally making Laos a place for drug trafficking, tourists drunken deaths, and the destruction of the lively hood of locals. It was even so bad once, around 2012-2013 the government shut down Vang Vieng bars to prevent these disasters and deaths from occurring. There is so much more issues that is at play here, but let the pictures tell the story. 

And no, you’re not helping our country’s economy with your grateful gift of tourism. You’re destroying the town’s and overall, country’s livelihood. Of course, we don’t mind visitors at all. We are happy to welcome people. Just don’t act disrespectful and ignorant.

Depictions of the Abu Simbel temples, from 1843 to present.

Of the most magnificent monuments in the world, the two temples at Abu Simbel date to about 1260 BCE, and have long captured the interest and imaginations of many.

Ramesses II dedicated the so-called Small Temple of Abu Simbel to the goddess Hathor, and his wife Nefertari. Slightly further south is the larger temple, which Ramesses dedicated to the gods Ptah, Amun-Re, Re-Horakhty, as well as his own divine self. 4 colossal seated figures of Ramesses take up the facade of the latter.

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


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.
