So Im planning on doing an experiment tomorrow
I'll draw a little swastika on my hand with sharpy and see how many people go" OMG NAZI LUL WTF" since most people don't know that the swastika is actually used by the Buddhist way before the nazis did.
I doubt I would get in trouble since I would just be like "oh im a Buddhist so I get why im in trouble"

DIScuss !

1. aren't you bloody special?
2. It's also used by Slavic Pagans, it's an old symbol that's found in more than just buddhist culture.
3. If you're not actually a buddhist, then you're more of an immature bastard than initially shows

You're an idiot. Pretty much everyone associates the swastika with German Naziism so you'd look pretty stupid wearing a swastika when you aren't buddhist and no one really associates the swastika with buddhism anyways. I hope a jew beats your ass.

EDIT: I didn't know you were buddhist. It still sounds like a bad idea though. It sounds like you just wanna piss people off, which is probably what would happen if a black person or a jewish person were to see your little swastika drawing. I think you'd be hard pressed at finding someone that believes that the reason you drew a swastika was because you're buddhist.

Go for it...too many symbols, particulary that of a religious nature, are misinterpreted these days and it is good to parody that fact!

#15
The Buddist style is done backwards, the acctual design used by the Nazis comes from the Norse religion and is the symbol of the God Thor and his hammer. The Nazis used it for 2 reasons:
1) As it is a very powerful symbol and very memerable and recognizable
2) To represent the Blitzkreig battle tactic used by them (and almost every other country) in the second world war.

You will most certainly get into trouble for it though
#16
Swastikas were used by German Nazi's during WWII.

However, a similar symbol was used by Buddhist monks waaaay before the Nazi's adopted it. It was sometimes reversed and most likely had a different name. It is also used in other religions like Hinduism.

Also, you haven't given any reason as to why you would put one on your hand other than you want attention...so cut it out.

personally i think that the swastika is the least of the positive symbols that the nazis attached a negative stigma to. Thanks to Hitler it's impossible to wear a Charlie Chaplin mustache, and I don't think it's fair to the mustache.

if you're a buddhist that's different, I'm just annoyed by people wearing symbols that they either don't know the meaning of, or wear it for no particular reason other than "it looks cool" but really has nothing to do with them

I still think it's a pretty immature thing to do, and rather pointless.

This is the most stupid idea ever. I understand that it makes sense in a context other than Nazism, but that is the common usage, and everyone will assume that it is a reference to Nazism because it is an extremely recognisable piece of symbology.

Provoking people into thinking you're a racist is a pretty bad idea, plus you can get yourself expelled from your school and arrested.

Seriously, let it go. It's stupid, immature and childish. I have extreme doubts as to your Buddhist faith, considering I've met people who switch religions and political ideologies every two god damned seconds, and you match them in description. I hate you.

In some ancient societies, the erect male penis was seen as a sign of fertility and strength. Why not draw one of those on your face, and explain that "actually, the phallus is a sign of fertility and strength, and I am by no mean declaring I am a dickhead" - it'll get you laughed at rather than a possible kicking with your swastika idea...

I doubt that I'd get in any trouble since I'm a Buddhist I can jsut tell them that
I doubt they'd suspended me since its my religion and since I live in America no very constitutional and such.

I hope you like getting raped, that's all that gonna happen. I'd probably say that more than 80% of people are gonna associate it with nazism and one of them is bound to punch you in the face a fair few times for the fact that you have it on you.

Stupid idea, stupider person
#31
its a different symbol. and a normal swastika has a bad connotation to eat because it accompanied bad things. simple as that. but again, completely different symbols.
#32
Your ideas for getting out of trouble are incredibly flimsy. It's still in no way whatsoever a "cool" idea. Stop trying to exploit something that is already well-known.

Just no

You're only doing it to get a rise out of people, a lot of people know it's not rooted in nazism, but they'd probably find it pretty offensive anyway, you ass

i can just imagine it now

Others: OMG you have a nazi symbol
You: LOL, No, its buddist, how did you not know that
*massive smug grin*
*probable ass beating for you*

honestly, grow up

But that's not the point- you may not get into trouble, but you're wearing that symbol to provoke people and cause trouble, instead of for its true Buddhist meaning, which is an insult to our faith and a stupid immature idea.

If you are not Buddhist...then you shouldn't do it. However, when I was in High School, they had a rule, where you can't wear anything depicting Satanism or Pagan beliefs. I wore a shirt with a big Sigil of Baphomet on the front of it around, and they tried to suspend me. I was and still am a Satanist, so I argued and threatened to take them to court. Eventually, after having my uncle pose as a lawyer,(he was going to law school at the time) they removed the rule from the school. I hear it's back now though, probably because I'm gone and they're going to try to force their beliefs on everyone again.

I think that would be an experiment a la Brainiak cos' you'll end up in a lot of pain, like Brainiaks.

I am not hoping you will by any means, I just think the idea of the experiment is amusing.


It will just go to prove that is a dick takes something good he can make something bad out of it and wipe out it's good meaning.

You're wrong. The Nazi Swastika took its basis from an ancient Buddhist symbol, but that symbol itself was not the same. Your experiment therefore has no control. You fail.
