I think I’m losing weight from these hour and a half walks with Moti, improved sleep, and trying to eat 3 meals a day. Maybe i’ll be able to fit back into some of my clothes from 3 years ago soon??? :-)
people actually use the tag #jap…
of course there’s fetishizing porn in there. of course there are a bunch of people posting sushi shots and cars.
I just… how are people using that as a tag? how are people “cool” with using that shit?
Remember Vincent Chin.
On June 19th, 1982, a 27 year old Chinese American, Vincent Chin, was beaten to death in Detroit by two autoworkers- Ronald Ebens and his stepson Michael Nitz- on the night of his bachelor party. Neither saw a night in jail and were released with a fine and probation. The reason? He was mistaken by the two murderers as Japanese during a time of rising anti-Japanese sentiment and decline in the American auto-industry. This racist attack occurred 31 years ago and out of the tragedy, a growing and vibrant pan-ethnic Asian American movement organized. Remember Vincent Chin, remember that the justice system doesn’t always deliver justice to our communities. Stand up, fight, organize.
Today I’ve been followed by The Heritage Foundation and OFA Bakersfield (different platforms, but still). I sense something….
this exercise ball as a seat for these senate shenanigans = great idea….
my abdomen is getting a workout from the balance and the laughter.
“Everybody has a preference. It’s not that big of a deal. It’s not a fetish.”
I have been grabbed on the street by drunk white men hollering at me and asking if I have a “vice grip” because apparently “Asians are tight”. Then there are the more subtle forms of fetishization, which are just as problematic and pervasive. Why do people try to play it out like this shit doesn’t matter? Who the hell are they to speak on behalf of all poc? Ugh.
