▼  恭禧發財 // HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR

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

Dear Non-Asian People: 

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.

  • me, a south asian gurl:south asian girls are beautiful, pass it on!
  • non-south asian person:this is, like, fetishizing and gross?
  • dif non-south asian person:sweaty, dont u mean, ALL girls are beautiful? :))
  • yet another non-south asian person:no offense, but why did u specify south asian girls, instead of all asian girls? :)))
  • additional non-south asian person:these types of race exclusive posts are the cause of racism!!!!!!!!!!

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.

Dear Non-Asians

1. We do not understand the words “ching chong”.

2. Not all Koreans make nuclear bombs or eat dogs.

3. Just cause you see an Asian person it doesn’t mean they’re Chinese, they could be Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino etc.

4. We are not all communists. (N.K)

5. Asian girls with long black hair HATE being called The Grudge or the girl from The Ring. Same goes for Asian guys and being called Grudge boy.

6. We don’t use THAT much M.S.G.

7. Don’t ask us to speak our language, we will when we feel like it.

8. We don’t know how to translate your name so stop asking cause most likely we can’t.

9. Don’t ask us to teach you curse words either.

10. Stop trying to pair up Asian guys and girls at your school and say they look cute together. Not all Asians belong together.

11. All Asian countries speak different languages.

12. Just because we’re Asian it doesn’t mean that we know karate, kung fu, tae kwon do etc. Even though we are probably capable of kicking your butt anyway.

13. Don’t say all Asian people look the same, that’s like saying all white people look the same, all African Americans look the same and all Hispanics look the same.

14. Surprise! Not all Asians are good at maths.

15. Not all Asians are short.

16. Or skinny.

17. Just to let you know, it’s NOT funny when you tape your eyes up and start speaking gibberish. That just gives us another reason to kick your butt.

18. Go ahead, make fun of us. We’ll just make fun of you in our own language.

19. It’s ok for us to call each other F.O.B’s but if you call us one you’re asking for a beating.

20. Yeah we eat rice, and what?

21. Don’t fold your hands and bow at us like you know what you’re doing cause honestly you look like an idiot.

22. Don’t ask if the Chinese use cat in their food, if they did they would label it “cat chow mein” instead of chicken chow mein. They don’t use cat if you didn’t already guess that by now.

23. No…Yao Ming is not my uncle.

24. Chopsticks are the perfect utensil and the easiest to wash.

25. People from India are Asians too.
