For every time I laughed at an Asian joke in middle school. For every white boy I make sweat. For every inch of space I take up in a room.

Happy Asian Face Appreciation Day! I cannot express how glad I am to have a community like AAGU. It&#8217;s allowed me to see that so many others are going through similar struggles and has allowed me to realize my anger is justified.
Stay strong. You&#8217;re all amazing. &lt;3

I&#8217;m tired of being told I look like a china doll or a geisha like it&#8217;s not creepy. 
I&#8217;m tired of gross fetish blogs following me.
I&#8217;m tired of being a category on PornHub.
I&#8217;m tired of being called a mutt and expected to laugh along.
I&#8217;m tired and angry and all around done.

Despite being fully Chinese, I have been told that am too &#8216;white&#8217; by Asian people but also that I am too Asian for white people. Growing up was difficult because everyone around me ridiculed me for my &#8216;slanty&#8217; eyes. I always felt like I could never be pretty. My intelligence was always written off as a predisposed trait that meant I was devoid of any real achievement. However, I have learned to fully embrace my looks and heritage without any self-condemnation; I do not owe anyone an apology for my existence.

Petition to start a AAGU bike gang - terrorizing white dudes and propping up our fellow pocs all over the world!
Because fuck that guy who expected me to take &#8220;I only date asian girls&#8221; as a compliment, and fuck &#8220;but where are you ~really~ from?&#8221; and &#8220;if you grew your hair out, you&#8217;d look like a geisha!&#8221; and &#8220;you&#8217;re so tall/well-spoken/terrible at math/etc&#8230;for an asian!&#8221; Fuck all of it, I am 100% done.

YO! I&#8217;m Tiana! I&#8217;m a 20 y/o living in KANSAS (the land of white privileged pricks lol let me tell you) and I&#8217;m Cambodian &amp; Vietnamese.
I went to a Catholic high school that had probably 90% white kids, 5% asian, and the other 5% mixed with everything else. Of course, not being white, I got made fun of for being Asian CONSISTENTLY. AND, all my friends were white. Because I barely ever saw the other Asians, or I just didn&#8217;t hang out with them idk I tried breaking the stereotype? BUT, there was a point where I just got so fed up with my white &#8220;friends&#8221; because of their constant racial slurs that I gave up and &#8220;got use&#8221; to the &#8220;jokes&#8221;. I was already known to be feisty and snappy, so i don&#8217;t even get why i let those jokes to slide?? Anyways, after two years being out of high school, my amount of friends have significantly decreased.  And let me tell you I couldn&#8217;t be anymore happier.
DON&#8217;T LET THE WHITE MAN GET YOU DOWN. EVER. 
If I could go back to high school, man would I say a lot. I&#8217;ve made more Asian friends in college and they&#8217;ve helped me find a good sense of my culture and what it truly means to be a first-generation Asian-American.
Don&#8217;t ever let people walk all over you with Asian jokes. If you&#8217;re offended, be offended and let them know. If you&#8217;re cool with letting the jokes slide, cool. But don&#8217;t hold back your voice if you have something to say. I&#8217;ve grown such a strong sense of my culture and myself by finally speaking up when people make comments about being Asian. 
I HOPE YOU ALL ARE TAKING NAMES AND KICKING ASS WHEREVER YOU ARE!

green-eyed mexican-korean pride :)

no, i don’t feel more “one” than the other
my dad doesn’t own a samurai sword (but if he did, he’d slice you in half)

don’t attribute my physical assets to my ethnic background(s)
my personality is not categorized by being “Asian” in one thing and “Latina” in another
you can thank my parents for the awesomeness that is me

i don’t care that you listen to k-pop
or that you watch “k-dramas”
and i hate that you keep putting “k” in front of everything
…and i honestly think it’s absurd that you think you’ll be doing good for the country by teaching english in seoul 

i don’t give a fuck if you like “kbbq”
i’ve already known how delicious it is since i was a toddler, good for you for “discovering” it at 23 years old.
you don’t own anything.  

definitely don’t own the definition of me. 

i could literally write a book about all the shit white boys have said to me. 

but instead i’m just gonna feel comfortable in my own skin.

Hi!

My name is Nicole. I was born here and raised here in the USA. I’m an American girl and, no, I don’t appreciate it when you ask me “where are you from” and “What kind of Asian are you”; even if you tell me I’m beautiful I won’t forgive you if you assume I can speak anything but American English.

Do I look like I bitched a boy out today?

I totally did!
