Its been a while since I’ve submitted to AFAD so why the heck not
Sam. 19. Korean, Scottish and Serbian. Film studies major in Montreal. Grew up in the Canadian rockies. Plays rugby. Drinks too much. Bi/pan, promiscuous and has zilch patience for respectability politics regarding the coexistence of those traits. 
I’m six feet tall. If you think your making an astute observation by saying “wow you’re really tall for being asian” you arent, trust me. You don’t know how many people have made that comment. (Also get your facts right height is not an ethnically specific trait)
Also a shout out to rude as hell people who inquire about my racial ambiguity in the first 2 minutes of meeting me. Lets put it this way, if your main motivation for talking to me is a curiosity about my racial background rather than wondering if what comes out of my mouth is interesting or not, thats cheap. Thats offensive. Fuck off. 
But I like watching people squirm as I deliberately avoid answering the question directly. Its fun.

Angry Filipina girl with a penchant for pop punk. When I was younger, I got bullied for the way I looked and was constantly asked what “ching chang chung” meant” and it used to make me feel awful and ugly. Then I grew up and stopped giving a shit what others thought of me and realized I’m beautiful and worthy in my own skin. It’s the best revelation I have ever had and I hope every person on here realizes that too.
Happy Asian Face Appreciation Day!

Chinese/ Heavily modded / vegetarian / queer / polyamorous / bdsm
These are my struggles, and these are the things I’ve embraced. I either scared people’s away or look at it as I’m some sort of “jackpot” or “the most exotic breed”. Everyday it’s a battle for me to justify my existence in this society, to put all the ignorant people in place.
Being in the kink community does amplified the struggle of fetishism. My previous play partner was a white male that does Kinbaku/Shibari (Japanese Rope Bondage), which makes it super controversial. But in the end, this doesn’t stop me from what I’m stand for.
I hope there’s people in here have the same (similar) struggle as I do, and as always, everyone of you are beautiful.

Hello! My name is Stella and I am half Chinese Indonesian/ Iranian!
This is the face I used to make when boys would come up to me and say “you’re pretty for a Chinese girl lololololol” but now thanks to this community I have more confidence and sass and I reply back now with “and you’re especially a dickhead for a white boy lololol”
BUT! I’ve also come with an agenda, for my dissertation I am looking at how women of colour use Tumblr for my Master’s final project! So I am asking if anyone would like to take part in my interview? This would take place on live chat (Skype IM, Yahoo Messenger, or anything else of your preference) It would take around an hour and will take place within the next week or two. Please message me ms-polkadot if you’re interested!

Hello, I was hoping you could share my new blog I am trying to work on and grow.  It is based on API art, art by API artists, and many people of color artists who may not identify as API, through a social justice lens.  APIART takes into consideration that all art is political and that unifying multiple API artist on one blog will work to empower others to express themselves.  I hope you’ll share this so that others may follow and submit to the blog, especially with the thought that I won’t be able to curate this on my own! :)

Greetings!  My name is Nomin, and I’m an angry Mongolian/Chinese/American woman interning at the Feminist Press.  We’re a small publishing house dedicated to printing books by, for, and about women, feminists, and marginalized groups. 
It’s Selfie Summer over at the FP tumblr!  If you submit a selfie of you doing something feminist or just plain rad, you could win a FREE Feminist Press book, like The Riot Grrl Collection, which has been helping me channel some third-wave rage all day.
So come on over to the FP tumblr for some feminist awesomeness (did I mention the chance to win FREE BOOKS?), and check out our official website for even more awesome books and resources.

One time I had a man come up to me and ask me: “If I were to go to your country and order something to eat, what would it be?”

It was the most roundabout way someone has ever asked “what kind of Asian are you?” that I’ve encountered so far.

I’m Thai and proud, sir.



I love the idea of Asian Face Appreciation Day, but not the reality that some faces are more accepted than others. I’ve been mistaken for Spanish, Italian, German, Portuguese, English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Latina…….basically anything but Filipina. And I’m not exactly a size 5, either. And I know a lot of Filipino elders (mostly women) call me ‘balasang’ which pretty much means ‘lady’, and implies that I’m pretty, but because I have have an appealing face?  Or because I’m lighter-skinned than other Filipinas?

Fuck.  Just……fuck.

Shout out to all my AAG’s expanding on their parents’ definitions of happiness and success!  From mental health to education, there are many choices we make that our parents may not understand, but I’m proud of the way we all continue to perservere.  There are many lessons we can learn from our parents’ journies, but never think that your own isn’t important!
