Bi, sex worker, mixed Thai + white. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where I belong across multiple marginalized communities, and I’m still working on it. But it’s so much better once you learn to be unapologetic about who you are. All my other angry Asian girls, you’re gorgeous and strong and wonderful. Keep rockin and don’t let anyone give you shit.


half Japanese | half Chinese | born & raised in the states

very tired of hearing:
“Where are you from?”
“You speak English so well!”
“Can you speak Japanese/Mandarin for us?”

My culture is not an aesthetic. Stop printing shirts that have random kanji characters that don’t make sense. We are not here to be your fashion statement.

Please don’t ask me to say random words in Japanese or Mandarin for entertainment, my language ability isn’t a party trick.

I pride myself in who I am and my cultural identity is part of that. This is my voice telling the world that we deserve earnest respect.


Sick of explaining to people that even though I’m half Indian and half (Malaysian) Chinese, I’m still Asian. Regardless of whether or not I choose to identify with my Chinese heritage more, I’m literally from Asia (and India is located within Asia last time I checked). Sick of being told that my hair is too frizzy/curly/thick or that my nose is too big. Sick of beauty standards. Sick to my stomach that institutional homophobia continues to be prevalent as a result of imperialism.
