Given that tickling yourself does not work the same as someone else tickling you, we really lucked out with masturbation.

According to the US Holocaust Memorial Museum,
Quote:
There exists a “myth” or legend which depicts Rommel as a chivalrous and noble military opponent who was not driven by political ideology. However, much ambiguity remains about the depth of his commitment to Nazi ideology
https://www.ushmm.org/wlc/en/article...uleId=10008295

I think the article as whole can fairly be summed up as "certainly not one of the worst, but not such a good guy as some people claim, either."

He was never a member of the Nazi party, and after he committed suicide (when he was accused of involvement in a plot to kill Hitler!), the Nazis draped his coffin in swastikas because they knew he would have hated that.

Whether he was a good guy or not (if there were any good guys), he wasn't actually a Nazi.

Source: well, originally an indy comic I used to read in the '80s where Rommel was depicted as gay, which I'm sure he would have also hated, but I did verify it on Wikipedia.

So, not a Nazi. My minor disappointment with Popehat remains.

Hermann Goering would have been a better choice, being about the right shape for most Nazi cosplayers

I think the problem is that "I'm cosplaying Rommel" still means that the cosplayer is wandering round wearing a swastika armband for fun, which certainly upset a lot of people back when a much younger and more foolish Prince Harry did it..

Given the danger of the outfit being misunderstood or causing serious offence, I think it's best avoided, myself.

What about cosplaying Rommel's gay kid brother "The Desert Peach"?

[Yes, I looked it up, it wasn't Rommel who was gay in the comic, but he'd still have hated it]

They actually had a musical.

Perhaps Popehat knows exactly who Rommel was, and the reference was to people who like to wrap themselves in the symbolism and trappings of the Nazis while insisting they aren't really Nazis.
