eunwoo spits out his juice, sputtering all over his white shirt, and whips around to stare incredulously at a smug looking bin.
“its on national tv, yknow?”
“where did that come from?!”
bin shrugs. “im just saying. no need to be all defensive if you dont watch adult movies.”
he grins as he watches eunwoo flail a little, ears burning and eyes shifting.
“i dont watch them–”
“youre lying! look, youre blushing.”
“shut up! no im not!”
“your face is so red.”
bin waggles his brows. “come over here and make me.”
eunwoo gets up. he stomps over to binnie, stepping right up to him until theyre nose to nose, and a tiny, tiny, tiny part of bin is waiting in anticipation, cheering at the fact he managed to trick eunwoo into–
eunwoo reaches up, palms bin’s whole face with one hand, and shoves him right out of the room. he shuts the door right in his face.
“come back when you learn to respect me!” eunwoo huffs through the door.
bin stares at the door in disbelief, feeling a little peeved he just had the door slam in his face, before deciding it isnt worth his anger and wanders off to watch tv.
well, at least now theres something to make fun of eunwoo about.
like you gotta also realize that where im coming from is a place that pretty much tried to force the concept of having children on me from age fucking 6
because of that and a fucking pregnancy documentary that was super disgusting and graphic and honestly quite traumatizing that were were forced to watch in like grade 5, i literally have tokophobia and an intense fear/disgust of any human from larval stage to early-pupae
the concept of having children makes me so fucking uncomfortable and i hate it i fucking hate it i hate that its still to this day forced upon me by my relatives. literally it gets to the point where if they try to force it on me or even remotely ask about it, i freeze up in sheer unbridled rage and literally start to fucking cry in front of them its so bad i hate it so much
Seeing all this stuff about the Alex Tizon discourse is making me wanna throw up.
Listen. What they did? It’s slavery. We know. We get it. But it’s not your slavery, it is a product of the broken system which we have been mired in, one which America has been directly complicit in. It’s an unfortunate case, horrifying, not entirely unexpected, but not exactly the norm. The issue here is that foreigners are trying to put words in our mouth and making this discussion about them instead of letting Filipinos process this and have a proper conversation about it without them shutting us down and screaming BUT SLAVERY!!! APOLOGISTS!!! not only that but they’re deliberately misunderstanding our language and honorifics, they are making things out to be something they’re not.
The system is broken. Any Filipino can tell you that. Yelling at us isn’t going to fix it unless you can somehow fix an entire culture with a press of a button and magically remove 400 years of colonialism and oppression, both by foreigners and fellow Filipinos, which has directly contributed to how desperate and helpless our people have become. It just doesn’t work that way.
But what really pisses me off about this? It’s because we’ve already been silenced before. We have been colonized, mistreated, our culture erased and labeled as inferior, our country gutted for resources and labor and this is still happening, just now its happening on more socially acceptable terms.
Context and the underlying culture does matter, especially when our culture has already been so abused and erased that we have no idea what kind of culture or history we would have had if it hadn’t been beaten out of us by colonizers for 400 years, even the name of our country, our very identity. To this day we still struggle with our identity as a people, with the colonial mentality and nation-wide inferiority complex instilled in us by colonizers.
Keep in mind that every time you yell at us about how culture doesn’t matter, you’re all slavery apologists, without taking into consideration our views, our culture and the system which contributes to this, and how people are still working to correct it despite the fact that progress will likely not come for another 20? 30? years maybe even longer. Progress is slow when you live in a country where every system is designed against you. We are seeing people from a country which oppressed us, attempting to once again erase our narrative and tell us they know better, perhaps then you can forgive us for being wary of foreigners dismissing our culture and views to propagate their own.
as falsettos are preforming the baseball game, does this mean the cube will be used? like what has happened to the cube the past six months? does the cube have an owner? where does someone store a huge cube?
