i get made fun of

anonymous asked:

I get really annoyed when people, especially other poc, claim that east asians arent discriminated against just because we're pale skinned?? scratch that. i get straight up PISSED. What the fuck does all the fetishization mean then?? especially in this age of koreaboos and porn. and not every east asian is pale???? i hate the model minority myth

Same. I’m not East Asian but you’ll always have my support.

Skin color doesn’t cancel out racism. Light and pale skin might give a Person of Color some privilege in a white society but that doesn’t mean white people can’t be racist and non-white people can’t be prejudiced towards that person. In addition, people’s experience with skin color is different depending on where we live.

I’m light-skinned so this doesn’t apply to me but pale skin isn’t glorified over here. If you’re pale-skinned, you might get made fun of. And I’m not saying it’s pale skin oppression or discrimination or anything like that lol. Far from it. I’m just saying that pale skin folks do get made fun of in some places in the world. We get a lot of sun here so the majority of people aren’t pale-skinned. I know people don’t like to hear this but it’s true for some.

At the same time, if we associate East Asians with pale skin, then what of those with tan or dark skin? Are they not East Asian and are they included in the “POC” umbrella only because they’re dark-skinned? You can’t choose and decide which East Asian is a Person of Color or who to include or exclude, because ALL East Asians are of color. ALL East Asians can face racist, prejudice, or discriminative acts regardless if they’re dark-skinned or pale-skinned. The frequency or intensity may differ but racism is still racism lol.

Also, where is this association that “East Asians are pale skin” coming from? Perhaps it’s because people don’t know any East Asians, haven’t interacted with East Asians, and only know K-pop idols??? I know a lot of Chinese folks specifically and many of them are darker than me lol. And to go back to the K-pop idol thing, they pamper themselves with skin-whitening products that the majority of real-life East Asians probably don’t use. So folks have to stop thinking of images that are not reflective of reality.

I just realized that popping bubble wrap has been a stim for me all my life, and was wondering if you knew of any things like stim toys that are LIKE popping bubble wrap but not actually popping it? (i need more subtle stims or to at least get stim toys so i'm not doing stims that everyone could notice so i don't get made fun of or something-)

I believe that they make phone cases that have ‘bubbles’ on the back to mimic the feel and sound of bubble wrap. I’m not sure how easy they are to find for specific phone models, but you could always just order one and hang on to it, if you can’t find one for your phone. I would go on amazon, eBay or AliExpress and search “bubble wrap phone cases” and see if you can find something that works for you.

Fortunately, allistics tend to love bubble wrap, as well, so if you found a phone case like that people would likely not notice or think anything of it.

Otherwise another subtle stim toy that can go on your phone would be a pop socket, which is a thing you put on the back of your phone. It’s meant to help with holding your phone or propping it up, but it’s really fun to pop it in and out and mess with it. They’re also very popular right now, so you can usually find them anywhere from Target to Hot Topic. They come in all sorts of cute patterns, too!

Shout out to the dumb boys who yanked my scarf off in the hallways and then laughed when I dropped all my books. Shout out to the guy who thought it was funny to go behind me during class and pull my bra strap to hear it snap then got defensive when I brought my fist out. Shout out to the guys who would say ‘that shit around your head is ugly you think you’re pretty?’ ‘let’s get married so I can see ur hair’ shout out to you because I love wearing hijab 100000x more because of you jerks

Adhd is already taken much too lightly, it can be extremely debilitating to many people and impacts every aspect of their life. I’m tired of it being treated as a less serious or “less important” disorder. I’m tired of it being thrown under the bus. It can be just as debilitating and hard to live with as depression or autism.

I grew up thinking i was neurotypical until 9th grade, despite being diagnosed with adhd in first grade, because nobody treated it seriously as a disorder. All I’d known about it was “Hyper and draws in class uwu” until ealier this year, 10th grade, i found out about executive dysfunction, hyperfixations, memory problems.

I grew up thinking i was neurotypical, but that i was just lazy and st*pid, that something about me was broken because i couldnt remember things i had just been told, i was told that i just wasnt trying hard enough because i was a smart kid.

I thought i was messed up because of my hyperfixations, and i hated how “obsessed” i would get with my fandoms and how much my friends made fun of it because many of them were “cringey” (Mlp, hetalia, fnaf, and undertale to name a few)

Please stop treating adhd as nothing more than “hyperactive and easily distracted”. It’s fucked up.

friendly reminder that several phrases, words, and names in various East Asian languages might sound like offensive, gross, or funny words in other languages. regardless of that, these words are a culture’s original language and should not affect people of other cultures when used in a neutral setting.
