i have never seen a post with a plot twist like this before
This is the exact mix of wonderful and awful parenting I expect most tumblr users will display in later life.
IF YOU DON’T GET THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PANSEXUALS AND BISEXUALS THEN you’re pretty normal i mean lots of people use the definitions and words interchangeably so your confusion is valid and not at all bigoted as some might say
dude sometimes even we get confused like i thought i was bisexual for 7 years before i actually realised i’m pansexual
I like this post.
Well. That was one of the quickest character developments I’ve seen…
Are you seriously telling me that all that villainous squinting and peering about is because he’s meant to be wearing glasses
because that’s amazing
when you try to push up your glasses but forget you took them off so you just kinda hit your face
I look like an extremely professional fashionable woman in an Abaya. It probably took me AGES to look this professional right?
WRONG. I’m actually wearing my onesie underneath it and you will NEVER KNOW MWAHAHAHA
Wanna know another secret? Even though i LOOK like I’m paying attention to whatever nonsense you are saying…..
I AM ACTUALLY WEARING HEADPHONES AND LISTENING TO MUSIC
THIS IS TO MUCH POWER FOR ONE PERSON TO HAVE
that one mutual u check for every time u lose a follower
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
white people, this is why nobody trusts you
yeah, so white women fetishize, objectify, and commodify woc as well and treat us like props.
this is why we don’t trust you.
In response to your logic, please find attached a picture of Hyuna Kim “fetishizing” and “commodifying” american culture. Yes I know she’s Korean, but J-pop and K-pop are relatively close in style, so don’t be pernickety. This use of other cultures isn’t a one way thing; as far as I know, American culture isn’t only basketball shirts and sunglasses.
Also, your Katy Perry picture is a poor example of the message you’re trying to convey. She, as well as her backing dancers, is in traditional Japanese dress, and there is not a cupcake or submissive sex kitten in sight.
And to add to that, what makes me really angry is that you are complaining about white women being racist and culturally stereotyping women of colour, and your response is what? “This is why nobody trusts you” - racism. Talk about hypocritical, you’re making sweeping statements about the Caucasian population as untrustworthy because a few dumb commercialised bitches in America made some music videos. Get off your high horse, just because you feel victimised by something doesn’t give you the right to do the same to others.
I didn’t want to get involved in this debate, I made a post yesterday and deleted it because I really can’t be bothered to deal with the inevitable backlash, but really this is getting stupid I’ve seen so many posts about it since then and it’s getting on my nerves.
"Yeah she’s Korean, but Korea and Japan are basically the same, right guys??" ….
Katy Perry and her dancers were NOT in “traditional dress”, jesus christ.
They were in sexed up kimonos with thigh-high slits in the sides, and face paint. Her “kimono” (which actually looks more like a cheongsam..) has a chest window! It’s a very poor, sexualised interpretation of geisha.
The fact that anyone would think that is how geisha actually dress shows how influential this type of representation can be. Here’s a photo of a geisha so you can see the difference.
Not to mention in the k-pop picture they don’t have a bunch of Caucasian girls dressed in basketball jerseys dancing around for them. They are just taking the clothes and that particular style of dress. American artists are using Japanese girls, not Japanese fashion, there is a big difference. I’ve had guys tell me they have “yellow fever”, that “Japanese girls get kinky” and a guy even showed me a picture of another Japanese girl in wearing a kitten costume “begging for treats” when I mention that I’m Japanese. People feel they have the right to say some straight up creepy things to me because I am Japanese and this is the image they have of my culture and consequently me.
Also do your research before you want to try and defend pop stars exploiting Japanese girls because Katy Perry is NOWHERE NEAR “TRADITIONAL WEAR.”
“In response to your logic, please find attached a picture of Hyuna Kim “fetishizing” and “commodifying” american culture.”
I think the fact that within Hogwarts there’s a lot of distaste for Slytherin and Hufflepuff shows some interesting insight into the wizarding community. Like, Hufflepuff represents hard work and fairness, right? But there’s the idea that Hufflepuffs are losers, sort of the proverbial nice guys who finish last. On the other hand, Slytherins, who represent cunning and ambition and personal drive, are seen as cutthroat and generally nasty and mean.
Ultimately, Hufflepuff and Slytherin are both rooted in philosophies on self betterment and achieving success in life, both in terms of being a better person and being a more powerful/wealthy person. The obvious question raised by Hogwarts student’s disapproval of both Slytherin and Hufflepuff is this: if it makes you a loser to succeed through hard work and fairness, but a cheat to succeed through cleverness and an attitude of doing whatever it takes to achieve your goals, how is someone in the wizarding world expected to gain power/wealth/status if they aren’t already born with it?
It’s also worth noting that in a world where magic can do your work for you, Hufflepuffs are scoffed at for being willing to work at all, and Slytherins are shunned for taking advantage of magic to it’s fullest.
