Louis confirming babygate...

Firstly if it wasn’t obvious already then what Louis said in that GMA interview about the baby was basically similar to what Liam said in the audio of the fake confirmation. Even though we now know that Liam’s was indeed fake, what is similar about these two happenings is that neither of them mention ‘baby’, 'pregnancy’, 'Briana’, 'dad’ etc.

Louis’ answer was extremely vague for someone who is apparently 'very excited’ and the reason for this is because eventually when a forced denial happens, nothing will fall back on Louis or Modest because they can simply say that 'Louis never actually confirmed anything’ since he actually didn’t confirm anything at all.

'Its very exciting’, 'I’m buzzing thankyou’ - this sounds familiar to the whole 'they GENUINELY believe’ where it is neither confirming nor denying anything and instead is just playing along with the interviewers questions.

GMA was live. If Louis wasn’t allowed to deny Babygate then he obviously had to say something vague enough that it can still be classed as an answer but not actually confirm anything and instead just make us more confused than ever. Since it was live it meant that if Louis fucked up and said something wrong then it couldn’t be edited so he had to be simple about what he said. Not only that but with it being live and it being on a show as well known and as well watched as GMA everyone is obviously going to see it. Considering after the show they did two more pre recorded interviews and apparently the baby was never mentioned in either so why only on the live interview was the baby mentioned (even if it was in the most forced and crap way possible).

I also want to mention that Louis’ reaction was awkward and irritated, almost like he didn’t want to say anything but had no choice but to have to say something. And the other boys were clearly not excited at all and if you watch it carefully, just as Louis is asked about the baby Liam looks at Louis as if to say 'should i say something’ and Louis gives him a quick look in return as if to say 'theres no point, ill just do it’. All of the boys moods instantly change afterwards especially Louis’ and when they asked sweet Harry why he wasn’t talking much and if he was okay, he said 'yeah’ but his face said 'fuck you’.

I also want to point out that Harry, who loves babies so much that he congratulates every single pregnant woman and basically wants to be pregnant himself, looked less excited than any of the others about this 'new 1D baby’. That really says something.

Also none of Louis’ family have said anything about the baby and neither have any of the boys despite how much they support Louis, they have said nothing, zero, zilch. If thats not even the slightest bit suspicious then i don’t even know anymore.

Now i could be wrong and i could just be being 'a delusional Larrie who wont except the truth’ but if people are actually believing 'very excited’ Louis confirmed that baby on GMA then this fandom has indeed hit rock bottom. There is nothing that has been said that actually makes sense and now i have reached a point where I’m not even sure if Niall is even Irish anymore because of how much this bands management makes them lie to us.

Anyways theres my opinion and anyone is welcome go and say anything to me about what i think as long as its reasonable and not rude because we have reached a point where we cant afford to argue with each amymore.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I was talking with two of my friends, one Han Chinese and one Chinese/Malaysian, and I'm white American (but I speak some Mandarin, so we were using both that and English). The second was talking about her ethnicity, and referring to herself as 混血. The Han Chinese friend then started asking me about my ethnic background, and so I told her that my family comes from a few different European countries, mainly Germany and England. She then said I'm 混血 too (1/2)

(2/2) I wasn’t sure 混血 was really an accurate description of me? I didn’t correct her because obviously she knows the language better than I do, and knows of the connotations of the word, but I’m just not too sure.

i think some of the confusion is coming from sort of the attempt to translate the term 混血 into the western ‘mixed race’ which often do mean the same things (like, anthony neely/倪安东, who is taiwanese/white, is considered 混血)

but then takeshi kaneshiro/金城武, who is taiwanese/japanese, is also considered to be 混血, even though both taiwan and japan are within the boundaries of the constructed race of east asian, as is pil seo-jin/毕书尽, who is taiwanese/korean

though ofc the dynamic here i think is a little bit different than having german and english ancestry, vs. having parents who come immediately from two different ethnicities

it’s not an inaccurate description, but it’s not necessarily the most accurate description either

anonymous asked:

Me and my friend were discussing about a game (Lovelive) and the girls in the game are wearing cheongsams. Is it okay for Japanese anime characters to be wearing it ? Is it appropriation. I did read the FAQ about this but it is like they were using the dress as fanservice and it seemed like fetishizing Chinese culture. Can i get ur opinion on this?

rape cw//sexual slavery cw

there are a plethora of different issues that go into this tbh

  1. in the anime that i’ve watched (which, granted, i don’t rly watch that much anime), cheongsam is often a shorthand denotation for chineseness, which would be ok imo except for the fact that they are often highly sexualised and they often engage in heavy stereotyping of chinese people
  2. the sexualisation of cheongsam by japanese people in particular leaves a very nasty taste in my mouth because i feel like it engages very much with the erotification + sexualisation of the chinese body that, during the second sino japanese war, culminated in the sexual slavery and rape of thousands of chinese women (particularly bc in this period in time cheongsam was daily wear) and in this context i don’t think the sexualisation of chinese women + chinese garb is not influenced by that at all
  3. tbh i don’t think it’s appropriation, but appropriation is not the only harmful way of engaging with someone else’s culture, and i do think that this depiction of cheongsam is harmful
