oh oh oh also there was this guy who didn’t know how to play mahjong so he saw the tiles and asked me if it was like chess
and I was just like
nah it’s more like poker :D
he was a lot more interested after that
when I was little I didn’t know what the fuck taishanese was
so I didn’t get that some of the stuff my parents was saying was in taishanese (okay most of it was) and that it sounded different from cantonese and now that I’m older and understand there is one there is progressively more shit I’m finding out I always called by the taishanese name
ex. mahjong, mandarin pinyin is majiang, cantonese jyutping is maazoeng, and taishanese…
it sounds like majeck, if you pronounce jeck like someone getting elbowed in the throat
I feel like I would care less about my eyelids if they were the fucking same instead of one double lid and one that’s mono unless I squint kinda hard
you do realise that this is an actual Japanese style called “Half” and she’s not actually being racist, she actually explains this in the beginning of the video. don’t make this another “hello kitty” incident.
ah yes, of course she isn’t an asian fetishiser. how could i have been mistaken. i was so wrong. i see the light now. none of this is racist at all, just like how that hello kitty video wasn’t racist. please forgive my gross oversight.
um… it’s not racist if you’re not being negative…
she’s just fascinated by japan and wants to share it, that doesn’t make her a bad person.
It is racist. Whether she wanted to be negative or not, this is extremely negative. Other races are not Halloween costumes that you can try on whenever you want!
What makes you think this is racist? I don’t think that any really japanese person finds this offensive. If she wants to look like a stereotypical japanese person, she can do that. It’s her style. You don’t probably even know what racism means.
It isn’t racist to say that “japanese eyes look like this” or that “japanese people often do their makeup like this”. It is just like saying “white people have a white skin”. It is not racist.
"If she wants to look like a stereotypical japanese person, she can do that."
So what’s your point? Japanese persons simply usually look like japanese and she loves their looks. Stereotypics =/= racism. There are a lot better reasons to get butthurt than some little girl who loves japanese style and probably doesn’t even get that someone could find that racist.
You’re so wrong it hurts.
I dont care what she does. But VenusAngelic is the most fakest person ever. She steals cosmetics from companies, hurts her fans (my friend met her once and she asked if she could take a picture of Venus and she got mad at her over NOTHING) and her mother is freaking weird. As well she doesnt have personallity at all and she even said on her blog “Its too shameful to accept who you are and what kinda body you have.”
It’s FETISHIZING. and doing a makeup tutorial of how to look like a race is actually racist. I find the Korean one actually very offensive. you can’t make yourself look like a collective race by putting makeup on your face and claiming it to be what it is. you can’t. but what she does overall? yeah that’s fetishistic.
As an Asian person, I sort of find her videos a little bit freaky. Like, it’s cool that she’s into Asian culture, but there isn’t one type of way to look Asian or a type of way a Japanese girl puts on make up. Not every Japanese girl puts on heaps of foundation and loads of falsies and color contacts to make their eyes a different color/appear larger. There are Japanese girls who don’t put on falsies, colored contacts, or even any make up at all.
Honestly, it’s great to know that people are interested in certain cultures, but I wish they wouldn’t think that all people of that culture dress a certain way or do things in a strict order and that certain order is restricted and there isn’t more than one way of doing something. It bothers me that many people outside of the Asian culture (especially Japanese culture!!!!!!) believe that most of them act a certain way because of videos like this when it really isn’t so.
#what she does is so wrong though#just look at some of the names of her videos#arabic doll#japanese barbie#she links races to dolls and stereotypes which shows she’s objectifying the culture#she’s objectifying Japanese (and Korean and Arabic) girls and women and shoving all diverse kinds of people into a select amount of stereotypes#and that is worrisome#you don’t honour a culture by objectifying it#and all stereotypes are harmful#these stereotypes are racist
MYTHOLOGY : THE FOUR DIVINE CREATURES OF ANCIENT CHINA
In China a saying goes around that four Divine Creatures guard the world in four directions: the Azure Dragon in the East, the White Tiger in the west, the Vermillion Bird (Zhuque) in the South, and the Black Tortoise (Xuanwu) in the north. As recorded in Shan Hai Jing (The Classic of Mountains and Sea), each of the four creatures represents a season – the Azure Dragon stands for spring, the Vermillion summer, the White Tiger autumn, and the Black Tortoise Winter.

people who hate what you ship and still stick with you when you have otp emotions
Yes thank you
I’m so pissed off my 100 kuai disappeared into thin air like that’s not even $20 usd but that was like, three/four days of food
You’re much stronger than you think you are
I’m never gonna pass off the chance to reblog this because hell, sometimes knowing that some one fictional will be there in times like there really does help.
This makes me love Superman even more.
I prefer Michael Straczynski take on a similar scene
Superman: A being capable of moving the heavens and Earth itself, will always take the time to let you just how important you really are
