Vaingloriously Not in the Same Vein

"you’re not even that Chinese; you don’t speak the language and you don’t have an accent"

actually, the reason why I don’t speak Chinese or have an accent is because I am, in fact Chinese, and my parents wanted me to speak like a native English speaker, without any of the bullshit countless other Chinese kids faced because of their Chinese accent and the fact that Chinese was their first language. SO fuck you, white asshole: The fact that you CAN speak Chinese and nobody is ever going to question your nationality, your loyalty, or your educational level is a privilege because my parents had to cut me off from that part of my ancestry just so that I could be treated a little bit better by your fucking society.

I think it’s really funny that people STILL have a perception that classical musicians are all nerds who don’t exercise and like are super weak physically like I was a serious classical pianist for about 16 years and like let me tell you my college instructor had to give me fucking yoga stretches because of the intense 4 hours a day practice sessions I was doing and at this point my hand and arm muscles are so developed that I LITERALLY DON’T REALIZE MY OWN STRENGTH with MY GRIP and actually have snapped several pencils with my grip inadvertently and have to actually monitor how tightly I grip something for a long period of time because otherwise I exert too much force and honestly had a physical trainer give me exercise to stretch after practicing and the trainer was like “no, this is legit, you are literally exercising a very specific group of muscles for hours at a time; it’s no different from what say, weight lifters or dancers really do on a focused work out day.”

TLDR: Observe this grip: 

Do you want this grip to strangle you?

No?

Then don’t fucking insult a classical pianist.

white people wanna pretend that internalized racism isn’t a thing so they can just point to their one non-white friend like “THEY SAY IT’S OK” and be good but like let me tell you the one time that I can clearly recall my father bringing up my looks to compliment me (without prompting for like a special occasion or my mother being like “doesn’t she look pretty”) he literally was trying to convince me that I didn’t need to be desperate to date these boys I was getting involved with because “his daughters were not the old maid types.” and like then he literally looks at me and goes, “because honestly, you are very pretty for a chinese girl.” 

And like long story short my mother literally slapped his arm and went “PAPA WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE IS BEAUTIFUL WHY YOU GOTTA SAY FOR A CHINESE GIRL, NO, YOU ARE PRETTY! YOU ARE PRETTY FOR ANYBODY OK?” 

and then she stormed off and angrily started cooking in her wok.

And what I’m trying to say is that if a father can literally tell his daughter that she’s pretty only for her race then wtf is that if it’s not internalized racism.

Also my mother is awesome and doesn’t take shit from anyone.

Do you think every president goes through a awkward first few weeks in office when they’re not sure when’s the right time to ask if aliens are real or not?

I know everybody’s like “ohh a live chat client would be awesome tumblr” but honestly I just want a fucking “search the ethnicity/gender of this user” search bar/tag because I’m getting sick and tired of people reblogging shit or commenting on shit that is specific to a minority and then having to go back and be like “is this person white and why are they on my page”
