whenever i see these post-apocalyptic films set in the USA where everyone is pretty much just killing each other with no mention of other nations i always just assume that the rest of the world is fine and has learnt how to resume life as normal
I was trying to explain to my grandma what being bisexual meant and saying that I looked at ladies butts and she was all
"You’re not GAY everyone checks out ladies rear ends" and my sister was like "I have never wanted to look at a ladies butt"
Later my grandma called me and was like “I THINK I MIGHT BE A LITTLE GAY”
BEST GRANDMA STORY
Avril Lavigne’s “Hello Kitty”
Honestly, I think it’s totally okay for a white person to be lollita or whatever.
But many of you seem to not be able to see the racist aspect of it. It’s not the whole “white people can’t dress lollita”. No I don’t give any fucks about that.
Here’s what I’m pissed about.
It’s not okay to take my race and make it seem like a silly exotic culture of bright toys and cutesy colors. She basically makes the Japanese seem like weeaboo “kawaii” children and objects rather real people. She infantizes the Japanese and makes them seem like life size dolls.
The japanese culture is made to seem like a culture of weeaboo cutesy children instead of a culture of rich and complex history.
This video isn’t racist because of fashion. It’s racist because of the way she portrays the Japanese race.
And if you still don’t get it, imagine this.
A music video where it’s all Italians in a sexy outfit. All there is is a shit ton of pizza. They use words like “Mama Mia! Give me pizza!” And give them tacky-ass fake mustaches.
Or imagine a music video about gays and using the stereotypes of sassy and shopping and sparkles. Giving them the fake accent and saying “FAAABULOUSSSS!!”
That’s basically what she did but with the japanese culture.EDIT: I AM GOING TO PUT THIS ON HERE Even if her song didn’t appeal to you, it doesn’t make it okay to insult Avril Lavigne and send death threats to her. I think Avril Lavigne is truly talented (even if I’m not a huge fan of her music. I used to be. And no it’s not because of this music video. I just grew out of the music genre). Just remember she is human too so you shouldn’t be sending death threats to her. And no I am not insulting her or bullying her. I am saying what she did wrong. We all make mistakes and that’s understandable since we are human. I respect Avril Lavigne, I just don’t respect what she did with that video
The weather is slowly but surely getting better,
Which means I want to buy ALL THE CROP TOPS.
cultural appropriation. they love everything about us but us.
I will bleed for better reasons this year.
When it comes to being gentle, start with yourself. Don’t get upset with your imperfections. Being disappointed by failure is understandable, but it shouldn’t turn into bitterness or spite directed at yourself. It’s a great mistake——because it leads nowhere—to get angry because you are angry, upset at being upset, disappointed because you are disappointed.
60. Wear slippers?
Yes, I have these house slippers by UGG and they’re ridiculously comfy and don’t make my feet sweat as much as you’d think.
