My opinion of BTS preforming at AMAs

As an Asian, all I can say is that I’m extremely proud to have BTS represent kpop at the AMAs. I grew up with Jackie Chan as my only Asian representation. I remember being offended when someone would call me Jackie Chan as a kid. (which I shouldn’t, Jackie Chan is awesome) I grew up believing that being called Asian is an insult. Now that I’m older, I’m proud of my race, and I’m happy that BTS was able to become an asian representative tonight. What BTS did tonight, opened many new doors for future asian artists. Obviously, some people may not be pleased that it was BTS, but all I have to say to that is- be grateful! It’s extremely hard for any asian to break into the american industry so when one does, GOOD! Asian have always been seen as a joke, or trend, and that’s not going to change overnight. This is just the beginning, when Psy became popular, I’m sure not many people were expecting any other kpop group to come to america, but it happened. Psy opened that door for bts, and now bts is doing the same for the next generation. The fact that we are able to have an asian artist become more know for their musical talents, does it really matter who they are? Expecially when they’re truly trying to make a difference for our generation? With each asian artist walking through those doors, the more chances they have to be able to show their real talents. BTS is the first kpop group to preform at AMAs and they’ll definetly not be the only or last.

Its amazing how people against age gaps seem to imagine a youthful person (usually a woman) and a pruney old person (usually a guy bc feminism amirite?) when there are PLENTY of people that don't look their age. For example, I look 10 years younger than I am. My whole family does. Asians man. We're small. My boyfriend looks younger than me (I'm 28, he's 38) by a LOT. Like I thought I had a baby face? Naw dude... Its just, people fall for looks and personality. Esp. w/ 2 *CONSENTING ADULTS*!!

I agree with this a lot– many people just don’t look their fucking age.

My father didn’t look his age, I don’t look my age, my brother doesn’t– so many people I know just DON’T LOOK THEIR AGE.

It’s honestly rare if someone looks exactly how old they are.

People need to remember when an adult is, and what consenting means.

I don't know if this is something i should ask on this blog (feel free to delete if its not) but i heard the chainsmokers said something racist, do you know what it was?

This is definitely something I am willing to answer. The video has been taken down. But yesterday at about 10AM KST, the Clamslappers posted a video of an interview in China for Ultra Festival on Twitter. And the host asked whether or not one of the guys (idk their names and I don’t want to know their names) whether he brought his dog. And he made a “joke” implying that dogs aren’t safe in China because of the typical Asian stereotype that all Asians eat/slaughter dogs. The guy didn’t say this specifically, but it was implied through his silence when asked why he didn’t bring his dog and after the host realized what he was implying the Clamslappers and the host laughed together. The caption was also the laughing (with tears) emoji. Later, (I just checked now because I have them blocked), the member (again idk their names) posted an apology saying that it was because he heard dogs get slaughtered in China (you can find it here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DJdyhAcUMAAr8Fk.jpg:orig), but it was still a racist comment based off of old stereotypes and it frustrates me to an incredible extent. The fact that they make these remarks and laugh about it makes me mad. While he said this is why he didn’t bring his dog, I’m sure he was making a joke about Chinese and Asians in general. If he was truly worried about his dog, he would have looked concerned or sad or made a comment about saving dogs in the interview. Instead he made a cheap “joke” and attempted to cover it up with a campaign to fight against dog slaughter. What makes it even more upsetting is that they are collaborating with BTS, a South Korean boy group. I know a lot of you guys won’t agree with me, but yeah. Also for those fans that are worried about whether or not dislking or not supporting the Clamslappers makes you a bad ARMY, it really doesn’t. Fact of the matter is we love BTS not them. Just because we love BTS doesn’t mean that we have to be fans of those people. I’m going to add this because I don’t think some of you get it. I am Asian, I have lived through ugly Asian stereotypes, remarks, “jokes.” Don’t make comments about the Asian experience and say “well this sterotype applies sometimes.” It doesn’t matter. It was a cheap ugly “joke” and should not be tolerated.

fuck like… there was a female superhero-led movie that actually showed a complex and dynamic, not overly sexualised woman. hell, women. lots of kickass amazing diverse women. and now we’re getting a whole movie of mostly black characters next year with an entire guard force made up of awesome kickass women. like i know there’s a long ass way to go towards equal representation but jfc am i emotional over this!! honestly this would never have happened back when i was growing up but now kids these days get to go to the cinema and see this shit and it’s so wonderful i want to cry

Marinette DUPAIN-CHENG

She is not called Marinette Cheng, or Marinette Dupain or whatever.

She is Marinette DUPAIN-CHENG, a young half-french, half-chinese girl.

I’ve been seeing recently a lot of posts, blogs that I like and respect, tags, etc, in which she is called Marinette Cheng, and it always makes sad and seems unfair!

How can one just erase a whole part of her identity this way?

Now, I know perfectly well that there has been some white-washing during the last few years and all…

But like… Isn’t that asian-washing? Or whatever you want to call it??

I may be identifying to much with a fictional character, but I know that if I was deprived of whole part of MY identity, to fight white-washing and with the exact same result, I’d be deeply hurt.

If  the creators choosed for Marinette to be half french and half chinese in terms of ethnicity and to show this through her name, then that’s for a particular reason. This choice holds some significance. Marinette is the proof that a mix, the merging between two countries can is beautiful…

And I may be repeating myself but

HOW CAN PEOPLE JUST CALL HER MARINETTE CHENG AND WASH AWAY A WHOLE PART OF HER IDENTITY?

Also, one last thing, it’s not Sabine Cheng, neither is it Tom Dupain.

It’s Sabine Dupain-Cheng and Tom Dupain-Cheng and the fact that they choosed to take the other’s surname is a real act of love. This is one of the most adorable thing I’ve witnessed in this show, and let’s not forget it, okay?

People who don’t understand why it’s such a big deal that they whitewashed the death note adaption because “there’s already Japanese versions with Japanese actors” clearly don’t understand whitewashing.

The Netflix version will be mainstream, it will not only be for those who know the source material but also for those who might not like anime, who don’t watch things in different languages and those who have never seen anything about Death Note. Saying that there’s enough adaptions with asian actors because there have been two Japanese versions is just ignorant. 

The fact that asians aren’t well represented in Hollywood is not news to anyone, especially not after what happened with Doctor Strange and Ghost in the Shell. When asian actors can’t even play asian character, what message does that send when it comes to other parts? 

It is important to be respectful of the source material and it’s creators, and this is incredibly disrespectful. The fact that the characters are whitewashed just shows how the creators have no respect for what they based their movie of off and it also shows how they aren’t really interested in pleasing the original fans of the manga/anime. 

Saying that there’s nothing wrong with the characters being white is just ignorant

Chapter Two


September 24, 2006


Waking up the next day was difficult for you. The dirt covered boy hasn’t left your dreams all night. Every time you would close your eyes, you’d have the same dream repeatedly: the boy coming from the forest, the puppy with violet eyes, the transformation… It was an almost non-ending nightmare. When you could finally sleep at peace without those visions, it was already sunrise.

You had finally woken up at 2 p.m. and since you were an early bird, this was the latest you had woken up. Stretching your hands over your head while yawning, you stared at the claw marks on your walls. So deep and so long they were! You didn’t believe that an animal could do that, but you weren’t sure either so you’d quickly forgotten about it. Today, you wanted to do something new and you will do so.

You went toward your curtains and opened them wide open, “Woah!” You exclaimed while squinting your eyes due to the bright sunlight. Today was a beautiful day, and you were going to enjoy yourself to the fullest. Your father wasn’t there so he wouldn’t know, right?
