this is a filipino positivity post.
for everyone who gets left behind or forgotten on lists of asians, on lists of south or southeast asians, hell for the people who get forgotten on lists of “asian countries everyone forgets about.” everyone who struggles with feeling caught between the chinese and the spanish cultures but never quite in either, not meeting the beauty standards of your own country but not meeting the beauty standards of anywhere else either. when even other asians look at you like sluts and maids, when you’re the “dumpy fat brown” asians. for all the mixed kids who are so scrambled up in the cultures that took us over you’re not sure where you should look for your ancestry.
this is a goddamn pin@y positivity post. ‘cause we fucking need one sometimes.
non-pin@y feel free to reblog :)
