In case you wondered about my last rant:
I did not appreciate to hang out with people as one of their guy-friends were single and they tried to fucking blind date us, even though I have ALREADY friendzoned him.
I tried to do it politely, please. Take one hint. If I say NO, it doesn’t turn into a ~~yes~~ because your friends roots for you.
I’m sorry but it’s getting ridiculous now.
Fine, some could say that I ought to be flattered that many finds me attractive and yes, on that point, I’m so very flattered that it have improved my self esteem greatly.
But that also means that I must say no to so many who asks me out.
I’m sorry to hurt your feelings, but I am not your fucking crutch, fucktoy or key to have a relationship just to fit the god damn norms.
And that’s why I’m so anti relationships right now. I don’t want to use any of you like that either, just to ease the pain in my chest and get needed attention. I’m not up to that. So I freak out whenever I like someone because what if that happens. What if I end up using YOU.
Just take a moment to take it in and just concider it for once. Thank you.
FIRST NAME: The first two letters of your first, middle, and last names
SURNAME: The last two letters of the same names
If you don’t have a middle name or that combination makes no sense, use the first three letters of your first/last name, etc. Don’t worry about overlap.
huh. And here people are obsessed enough about getting a tan that skincancer skyrockets and people loves to burn in the sun to just gain a little color. And i think that they all do it to feel pretty. my sister does it to feel pretty at least, and she becomes super pretty because she feels pretty. Me on the other hand enjoys being a bit on the paler side and friends i’ve met thinks it looks pretty to be pale; but there is no social norms or whatever in it. it’s just… it’s like changing haircolor (you can buy those creams at the store to change the color of your hair) and colored lenses (many uses these to feel pretty or get big pretty eyes). you know, small differences to feel pretty. Some probably likes to alter their skincolor too. some people like tanner skincolors (like my sister) and some enjoy being paler (like me). and none of it is ugly as long as you feel pretty in it. fuck the social norms just be pretty and go with it. you rock.
now imagine seeing that kind of shit everywhere. fucking billboards and shops and everything full of this. it literally makes me want to use it so i can stop hating society as much if just conform to this horseshit. i hate white privilege. i hate whitewashing i hate it i hate it i hate it aLL
I tried it once. a soap that was supposed to lighten skin. It worked a bit but I stopped thank goodness.
yes, it’s something to get really angry about.
but no, not so fast. not all whitening beauty products that are marketed towards darker skinned people are tied to Eurocentric, ‘white is beautiful’. I can only speak for East and Southeast Asian cultures - but for a long time, WAY before colonialism and globalization had huge impacts, lighter skin was regarded as beautiful and it probably meant you were from a higher class. It still is; and for sure Westernization impacts and commodifies what is beautiful.
I detest whitewashing just as much and still get self conscious about being tanner/darker from time to time, but just keep in mind that there’s always more context to explain than just ‘non-Westerns want to be Westernized”?
no no i agree with this it’s just!! the idea of skin-bleaching nowadays holds connotation towards western beauty as well?? i mean yes it still partly has the idea of social class but it’s meaning has changed along the way. i mean, for god’s sake, i’ve seen whitening commercials with white models?? ?? ? so it’s not the same as it used to be. not entirely. in any case, the idea of changing your skin color because it’s tone is considered something lower classes have is messed up beyond belief
also! you’re right about only being able to speak for east-southeast asian culture b/c western society has this same whitening idea however it is marketed specifically to pale darker-skinned people. so yeah whitewashing is basically just fucked up ten ways to sunday.
