Yes you think I’m cute but it has nothing about me being Asian like you are about to tell me, I swear. It just has to do with my cute face.

when i’m bad at taekwondo, say kpop isn’t my cup of tea, cannot do math to save my life, or draw that well, non-asian people keep asking me why i’m so bad at being asian. 

but what is being asian ? 

when i say i love anime (hmu pandora hearts/pmmm fans), say that sushi/sundae is love; sushi/sundae is life, like to wear cutesy graphic t-shirts, cosplay, or draw manga-esque shit, non-asian people keep asking me why i’m being so stereotypical.

but didn’t u guys want me to be stereotypical earlier? i’m so confused

god it’s almost like they think every asian has the same characteristics or something and that asian people, like NORMAL HUMAN BEINGS, can’t have differing interests/priorities. it’s almost like i, as an asian girl, am being dehumanized. i am seen more as a caricature than an actual human being. 

here’s to all my asian sisters who grew believing and/or being told they weren’t ‘enough’: you are enough.

One of my favorite artists on Tumblr is using some of my pictures (including this one) to practice techniques for a new project. Even though this picture is just a facial reference, I’m really pleased with it and want to share it, because I am still beyond thrilled that I get to be involved with something like this. Like most of us, I’ve gone through cycles of crippling self-doubt in regards to my physical appearance, and it is affirmations like this- and like Asian Face Appreciation Day- that help keep the glow strong.
Ladies, never give up on yourselves. You are beautiful; you are art. You are gifts to the world from the universe.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I’ve started to like it less because of all the racist costumes.  How many iterations of ninja, geisha, “dragon lady”, and “China doll” can you have?  Then you’ve got the ignorant assholes who choose to do yellowface (and every other type of face).  It’s seriously enough to make this cosplayer hate a holiday that involves dressing up.
However, I’ve realized something good about Halloween.  It’s the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world is the thinnest.  So I just think about how many of our angry ancestors will go after the racists and it makes me like the holiday again.

Did you actually just ask me if I speak Chinese after I told you I’m Japanese-American? Can you not.

The first time I realized that I was asian was when I realized that I was not white. Especially going to a private, it is sometimes difficult to see through this thick cloud of insecurities with the dominance of white people, left and right. I almost started to believe that I was white myself, that this issue was easily fixable. Maybe if I talked to the right group of people. Maybe if I play a sport. All of this doubt and uncertainty to hide the real me. I never found out who I was, and to this day is still looking for myself, but I am proud of being Chinese-American and I will always stand up (fiercely i might add) for my Asian brothers and sisters. My advice to you all, never let you voice go unheard because it could impact someone’s life. All of this oppression will never change for the better unless you open your eyes and acknowledge that our world is in fact extremely flawed.
