no; people

Dear Non-Natives,

Don’t you dare tell me that your stereotypical “Indian Savage” costume is honoring my people. You are not honoring us by perpetuating stereotypes. You are making a mockery of us. We are not costumes, stop treating us like we are. It’s not honoring, it’s racist.

Sincerely, 

Your Choctaw Friend

Dear White Friends,

No, I am not Mexican. Not every Hispanic looks Mexican. And yes, there are differences between a Mexican, Peruvian, and Puerto Rican. Don’t tell me that it ‘doesn’t matter because they are basically the same anyways’. Don’t say that because it will make you feel better about your mistake. You’re not funny. Don’t assume. Cuz if you do, you just sound stupid and racist. 

Sincerely, 

A pissed off Peruvian woman

Paluuuuu!! You should do some YOI doodle tutorials! For us not as skilled as you! (*^ω^*)

okie before i start, skill comes from practice and every artist has their own interpretation of characters ;O; meaning my way of drawing them is not the “correct” way of drawing them,,, just how I draw them ;7; if you really want to get better at drawing YOI characters, I suggest spending hours looking at official art and rewatching the anime (pausing and taking notes at the angles) because that’s what I did lmao and because I draw them so much, I can now draw them without a reference, add my own touch and memorize what they look like from all angles ;7;;;; so anon, practice and observe <333

1) how to viktor nikiforov

Here’s an idea. Maybe don’t say shitty things about people’s dogs when you reblog photos of them. In case you didn’t know, the OP sees them! So when you say my dogs are ugly as sin, or fucking nightmare fuel, or that you hate the way they look, I SEE THAT. Maybe m a y b e keep it to yourself? I love these dogs more than life itself and I don’t want to read your nasty opinions about the sweetest and kindest beings I know.

So let me get this straight. Woman "transitions" to man and that's okay, but white woman transitions to black woman and that's like, not okay?

Okay, I’m going to assume you’re talking this post. (http://xtra.thoughtremixer.com/post/165625270397/white-woman-discusses-her-black-woman-transition)

I’m going to be extremely short with this answer:

Did you SEE that person’s body? Did you look at the “before” and “after”? 

She did way more than darkening her skin, she became a caricature of what Black people are supposed to look like. 

We - scratched that - NO HUMAN RACE have any advantages over the other as far as skin! No one! 

Black, in this case, Black American, is a culture. A very broad & complex one. You put a Black person in a White neighborhood from birth to death and they may never be “Black enough” when a Black person from New York dates them.

You know what they got in common tho? The same social stigmas that come with said Blackness. 

You can’t “transition” from one culture to next. You can adopt a culture. Study it. Appreciate it. But you can’t “transition” to it. There are Black Americans living in Japan right now. You think they are going to come back looking like Japanese people? The most that is going to happen is that they speak Japanese, and adapt to their culture, which is not the most unusual thing to expect.

Also, think about this… when a transgender person transitions, it’s not like they are trying to take on a WHOLE OTHER persona. I have yet to see a Black man transitioned into a White woman.

I see Black men scream like White women tho. Totally different story and I’m mostly referring to me.

I'm so confused by bisexuality...I accept it but I can't understand? Like it doesn't make sense to me? How can someone be attracted to more than one gender? That's so confusing...
