I am aware valentines day is around the corner and France as a non asian nation is not known to celebrate the turn of the spring festivity, but since chinese new year is coming soon, I decided to make something for this fandom. especially since
Marinette is half chinese, thus including a cast with a lovable mother, Sabine, and her great uncle, master Weng. although I’ve failed to add Sabine I hope this itself is enough. I hope to those who do celebrate the chinese new year gets lots of red envelops. I know I won’t. ;,D

When we talk about the racism and fetishization we face and you silence or invalidate our experience, you’re not being an ally at all. When we say it’s not okay to be attracted to us SOLELY for our race and nothing else (huge difference between finding someone attractive regardless of their race and being attracted to someone solely for their race), to use our languages as accessories, etc., we are speaking from our own experience, so when you try to shut us down, that speaks volumes about how you don’t really care about us at all. If you really cared, then you’d sit down and listen to our voices instead of silencing us.
I just want to make a shout out to all mixed-race and/or mixed-ethnicity Asians who feel they have a disconnect with that part of their identity, like me. Those people who don’t know a thing about that part of their heritage and identity, who don’t know the language, who want to know but may have not anyone to teach them. You’re not any less Asian for it! There is always the opportunity for learning about that part of your identity and there is nothing wrong with that!
And no one can tell you’re not Asian. You are. You know you are.
