I love that I go to a big college because then I really don’t have to deal with people who treat me poorly.
It feels so empowering that I can walk away from people who don’t treat me like I deserve.
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
— Khalil Gibran (via feellng)
See, the thing about this is that [East Asian] fetishists aren’t interested at all
in knowing about Asians, and that can’t be made more obvious by the fact that they’re 100% happy to ignore or rigorously defend themselves against Asians who tell them to stop
. All their supposed respect goes right out the window as soon as we demand agency over how our cultures and histories are treated a.k.a. as soon as we become real human beings
instead of objects for them to use as ornaments to decorate their houses or feed some self-gratifying ideal of counter-cultural identity.
