Semi rant ahead
As a person of Asian descent, I’m not sure how to feel about this. It makes me uncomfortable knowing some people obsess over a race after either being ignored or objectified for some time, depending on what is current and trending.
You can love our culture and be amazed by the breathtaking diversity of it. You can study our languages. You can love our people. You can appreciate Asia and what it stands for.
But please, please, don’t do it to the point of appropriation and objectification.
We aren’t a fad. We arent a fetish nor are we objects of desire.
We are a race of people. Real. Living. Thriving.
Please remember that.
