Call It Burma

I know you think you're being culturally sensitive when you refer to that country as Myanmar but you're actually being a fucking twat.

Listen, it was always called Burma. Then this brutal dictatorship put its boot heel on the neck of the Burmese people and changed the name to Myanmar but to the people it has always been Burma. They'd tell you if they hadn't been ventilated by shock troops.

It's like a guy calls a girl Sally while he rapes her and when the cops get there, they call her Sally out of respect.

So, you're kinda being a dick.


Got it?

Update: Exactly.
