"Too many young girls don’t know how to act when someone’s being inappropriate with them. They giggle or they try to brush it off. Don’t do that. Tell them to go fuck themselves - be a bitch. If someone’s being disrespectful to you, be disrespectful right back. Show them the same amount of respect that they show you."
I’m sad that it took so much happening in my life before I realized the ‘neutral’ isn’t “I have no opinion”, but “Why can’t we all just get along?” And yet neutrality feels so damn enlightened when you’re in that position. It feels like you’re being the only rational one in a sea of shouting voices, when really, it’s just a deep misunderstanding of conflict.
That commentary is A+. It’s easy to be “calm” when the situation doesn’t affect you.

This is a map of Asia. North Americans, you may notice this map is not solely comprised of Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. People in the UK, you may notice India is not a continent. That is, if those of you who generalize entire continents can even pinpoint India on a map. Indians are Asian, gasp! And not all brown skinned people are Indian, also, gasp! There are an alarming amount of people, of all ages, from all backgrounds, who seem to be unable to process this.
I’m ethnically Asian. Since Asia is an extremely large continent, I could be from any number of countries. I am neither from India, China, Korea, Japan or Pakistan, yet not so surprisingly, I am still Asian.
Yes, there are commonalities across regions, through the conflation of cultures, colonialism, globalization, transnationalism and movement of diasporas. Sometimes these are all the same thing. Rickshaws, rice and curry can be found across the continent. But let’s not overgeneralize. You can also find Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Hindus across Asia. Cantonese Speaking Chinese Muslims! English Speaking Indian Jews!
No, we are not all the same. Orientalism? (Please look up Edward Said for basic concepts) No thank you.
Geography, people. It’s important.
This pops up on my dash every so often. I reblog it again, not just because I wrote it, but because nothing has changed since I first posted this.
What’s cool about Iran is that it falls in 3 different regions of Asia so depending on what part of Iran you’re in, you can kind of get culture shocked a bit. The central and western part of the country is West Asia, the north east is Central Asia, and the southeast is in South Asia.
To the folks wondering about Russia being included, I want to mention that the cultural debates and angst about that has been going on for CENTURIES. While France has been pretty fetishized all the way back from Peter the Great, there is no question that we are not Europe, even with that influence showing really obviously in historical seats of power like St. Petersburg. Nonetheless, the whole country was under control of the Mongols (The Golden Horde) from roughly 1242 to 1480, and that left an enormous Mongolian and Tatar heritage that remains to this day. The ancient Scythians are huge in the cultural imagination as well. And besides… look at the Russians who are outside the standard “Kievan Rus” phenotype (which most folks assume is how all Russians look.)

IF ANYONE EVER SAYS “I LOVE ASIAN CULTURE”, REFER THEM TO THIS AND THEN STOMP ON THEIR FACE

I saw you for the first time a week ago.
I was driving down Forest Avenue, and you were walking. I looked over, and it was like seeing a ghost. I didn’t want you to see me, was praying you wouldn’t see me. And you turned your head slightly, just enough that I know you were aware I was there. I started crying, those tears that start & won’t stop, that make your cheeks tight, and immediately panicked. You are not suppose to be anywhere near me. You are not suppose to be real anymore.
Today, I’m listening to music on campus and studying. I think about you sometimes. I wonder if you’re okay, if you’re still chain smoking & drinking rum in a dark room, studying your own books. I miss you the way I miss smoking - I don’t miss the additives, I don’t miss what everyone else misses… I miss the habit, I miss having something to do when everything else is hard, when life hurts. But I know it’s not worth it, and that if I started again, it would taste awful & I’d immediately regret it & I don’t have any regrets, so why would I start now?
I spent 7 years loving someone who never loved me back the way I deserved. You are beautiful, and you are intelligent, but god, you are vile, and I hope that no one ever
hurts traumatizes you the way you managed to hurt me.

Really nice set
Anyone know what these gifs are from.
Hi! It’s me! I made this! It sucks that people remove credits ‘cause then cool gifs get moved around the TumblrTubes and then people are left being like “YO WHO ARE THESE FOXY LADIES? WHERE CAN I SEE MORE OF THEM? NOW MY LIFE FEELS INCOMPLETE!” which does indeed suck! What also sucks is that indie porn ladies like me don’t have a whole team behind them to promote & draw traffic towards them like major porn companies do so we rely heavily on “word of keyboard” and y’all sharing what you like so others see it and are like “Hey, I like that too! This person is doing cool stuff!” and maybe even buy that stuff which creates a nice support system where we can make more stuff like this!
—— here’s the original post! Have a nice day! ——
My newest g/g scene with Eidyia is now up on Clips4sale for your viewing pleasures! It’s cool, we get down all old school Tony Scott style! You can see a preview of the 18 minute video HERE! SO MANY EXCLAMATION MAKES ‘CAUSE I’M SO DAMN EXCITED!
As one of the people who picked this up and spread it about early (with the original text) I want to take this moment to point out that you’re an asshole if you remove the information posted by people who are creating the material you are using to get your perv on. I will remove some shitty sexist/racist/cissexist text for sure, but never information from creators.
Don’t me an asshole.
