Story time: I was a fearless child. Anytime my mother and I, on the way back or going to an Indian party, stopped at a convenience store for something, her face would pull in. She’d look down at her sari, her pure silk sari, with shame and ask me to go in and buy whatever we needed myself. I was fearless. I walked in with my glitz and my salwaar and I’d have no shame whatsoever. Because what right did they have, the general public in the store, to judge me? What right did they have to make my mother ashamed of herself? 

And my mother would ask, “Are you okay?? Going in like this?” because she had forgotten how to wear her culture with pride in light of what people might think. So yeah, reclaim the motherfucking bindi, because westernization of Asian countries has more of a lasting impression than you think. Reclaim the bindi because  white girls who wanna take our beauty without going through the rest of the prejudice we face are way out of line. Our culture is our own, and we need to be fearless.

Can we just give it up to GOD for being the ultimate Captain of this ship. He saw a man about to have a good time at the strip club, and decided to cockblock. Let's have the strippers dance to one of Baes songs, and now she will be the only person on his mind. He probably couldn't even look at them without seeing her face. Well played GOD, well played. Scoreboard - GOD: 100 Val: 0

Lol……that is sooooo true!!! 😂😂😂

Shows are so fun but so exhausting tbh (he/they)

You wouldn’t tell an artist that their canvas looked better before they painted it, so why would you tell a girl that her face looked better before she put makeup on it?
