hindi girl

Not Every Desi Woman

- Wants to be a Bollywood actress
- Is Indian, South Asia is more than one country with one culture
- Is able to cook
- Wants to be a housewife
- Can make roti (or anything else)
- Wants a battalion of children
- Wants to get rid of her body hair
- Wants to make herself lighter to fit in with Eurocentric beauty standards
- Wants/will have an arranged marriage
- Is repressed, sexually or otherwise

Don’t base your impression of us on stereotypes you learn about from shitty jokes or from racist TV shows or films.

For all my Desi girls out there, wherever you’re from, if you meet anyone who tries to enforce one of these (or other) traits on you, tell them to eat tutti (shit).
