sunday morning

- something made The Real World pop into my head, so i was doing a lil light googling on the seasons i actually watched with regularity- Seattle, Hawaii, New Orleans, the latter leading me to google Danny Roberts, the adorable homo (remember his military boyfriend who was always blurred out because DADT was still in effect?) who played a peripheral role in my sexual awakening, and ANYWAY turns out he now works in HR at MailChimp, a company i’ve received no less than 3 inquiries from regarding design positions that I’ve had to turn down for various reasons, the point being that he might have had a hand in that too

- he’s still cute and has a beard and a baby now but his husband reminds me of the 60 year old Argentinian woman who trained me at a job i don’t remember when i was 17, just with bigger biceps

- i just saw a maybe 22 year old kid stop in the middle of the sidewalk across the street, bend over, pick up a cigarette butt, and then proceed to light it and smoke it and after processing the abject horror i was like well… i’d never be physically capable of doing that but the inner landscape one would need to inhabit to find this an okay no-big-swig-whatever thing to do, the nihilism required for this act is somehow… relatable and basically all of this is worrisome but esp. w/r/t my character as a stressy nervous bird person

- my back hurts and i don’t want to go to the grocery and if this second-hand One Step Above Buffalo dump of a metropolitan area doesn’t start offering a variety of grocery delivery services soon i’m going to melt it into molten slag with nothing but sheer willpower

Fuck Justin Bieber for being a fuckin rascist and ruining Despacito. I'm Argentinian and i cant stand that guy since the last time he came here. You can't act like he's a victim. He's a grown up man and needs to stand for his acts. And I don't even like selena or any of these bitches in gringolandia. I just can't stand him.

Lmao okay? Hate Justin all you want but he ain’t racist and him being drunk in a club and not knowing the lyrics to his song that he literally only sang in the studio, isn’t that controversial and is not racism, but whatever feeds ur hatred sis.

I always try to have a diverse cast of characters in anything I write, regardless of the genre. But I've received feedback from some people that my mixed-race characters aren't "realistic." One example of this is a character I have; he's Indian and Argentinian. I have a decent story for now his parents met and everything. Is having characters like this unrealistic or like I'm forcing diversity? What's a good way to go about this? Thank you!! And sorry if my words are all scrambled.

“Unrealistic” Racial Mixes? Indian and Argentinian

I’ve met people who are Iranian and Latino, Italian and Indian, and (white) German and Chinese. My Japanese friend and colleague was born in Venezuela. I used to do business with a woman who called herself “Jewban” (yes, she was from South Florida.) 

Is the person who told you that white? Because I almost wonder if part of the “forced diversity, unrealistic” kneejerk reaction is white people forgetting that interracial couples don’t have to contain a white person.

That’s not to say that certain groups wouldn’t raise an eyebrow–but for that to happen, they’d have to be highly geographically localized, and you could probably still make that work if you set it up realistically.


Define “unrealistic.”

I typed in “Indian Argentinian” and immediately got a Wiki article on an Indian community in Argentina. so, y'know, far from unrealistic.

FWIW: there’s Puppity, a comic going around about being multiracial by Kiana Khansmith, a Jamaican-Japanese woman. Also, the last two Miss Japans were Black and Japanese (Ariana Miyamoto), and Indian and Japanese (Priyanka Yoshikawa). My mentor in law school was also Black and Japanese, too, and one of the deans was Black and Korean. A blogger I follow is Japanese-Vietnamese, even, I had a classmate in school who was Chinese and raised in Peru, and also taught a student who was Japanese and raised in Mexico. 

tl;dr: agree heartily with Shira.

EDIT: corrected Priyanka’s surname to Yoshikawa and Eliana to Ariana. Thanks so much, helpful followers!

Name: Camila

Age: 18

Country: Argentina 

Well, hello. My name’s Camila, but i like to be called Cam, or Cami. I’m half argentinian, and half mexican. I’m currently studying History in Argentina, but i may move to Mexico in a few months or a year to study Latin American Studies.
I love blue, literature, art, series. I go from music to theater, dancing, drawing or painting. Kind of a Netflix -proud- addict, my favorite shows go from Supernatural to How to get away with murder, also including some like Rick and Morty, Skins, Dr. House, and Glee (with many others). I’m a musician and a writer myself (have an acoustic group and I’m editing a poetry book). Also, I’m really into any fandom (guilty pleasures starts with Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, Percy Jackson, Dr Who, etc etc)
Something really important about me: i’m really into social stuff. I’m part of a comunal radio, a gender-open group, and I’m constantly participating in any movement that involves justice and human rights. My town, particularly, has a long story of popular fight and social movements.
I know this is pretty messy. I really want to find a penpal and do this for the first time. I’m open to anyone-boy, girl, it. Age doesn’t matter, gender doesn’t matter. I want someone to know, to be friends with. I wanna send letter, since writing is the thing I love the most. So if you’re interested on knowing me a little bit more, feel free to write. I will be expecting your message <3

Preferences:  As said above, I really don’t mind about which is your age/gender. I’m open to meet anyone who wanna exchange culture, feelings, way of life’s, interest. I only expect them to be tolerant, into social, art, politics, fantasy, etc. Oh, and I’m not looking for any love-related relationship, jic.
