ignore me i can't do a read more

Ignore, ignore if you’re allergic to call out posts. I usually don’t do these but there’s stories to tell and people to be warned about this bitch. Oh, by the way, this post is like, far from short (seriously, it’s so huge because of ALL THE SALT) so don’t even bother if you’re not up for a long ride of me being angry and extra.

Hi ziseviolet! I hope you don't mind me asking for help on identifying a type of garment? If you do, please feel free to ignore this! I can only speak Cantonese and but can't read hanzi, so I'm having troubles identifying what this garment is: fouryearsofshades*tumblr*com/post/129503122628/ and I was wondering if you knew? If you don't, then I apologise for troubling you!

Hello! Please, DO ask me when you need help on anything hanfu-related - that’s what my ask box is for! 

The garment in question is a Tang Dynasty-style Yuanlingpao/圆领袍, literally “round-collar robe”. I wrote a little bit on it in my post here, and I also have an admittedly underused yuanlingpao tag you can browse as well. For a more detailed guide, you can read this blog entry. The yuanlingpao was originally a male garment, but it became fashionable during the Tang Dynasty for women to wear as well. Nowadays it’s considered unisex, and is quite popular with females. Hope this helps! :)

I have tried asking in a more subtle manner, but I was ignored, so allow me to rephrase: How do you back your outlandish claims of privilege that people experiencing them can't see.(Allow me to remind you that this is tantamount to me saying women actually have a third eyeball that they are incapable of seeing) It seems that you are unable of offering empirical evidence rather than anecdotes based on personal insecurities and mispronunciations that are somehow explainable by race.

For the record, I’m not doing this for you, since I know you’ve already made up your mind and won’t bother reading any of these anyway, but since you seem to think this is something we just made up and want “empirical evidence,” here’s some further reading.
