So these tweets are actually real.

I really like how she tries to defend herself by stating how much she loooveees Japanese culture

"You guys I did this with Japanese people it’s cool"

"I go to Japan like so much ok I know the culture"

"I know so many Japanese people and even the director was Japanese!"

God these bullshit statements alone just insinuates that hey Japanese people are working with me so I can’t be doing anything wrong or racist, otherwise they’d tell me! 

Yeah because even if you’re an artist at the end of her career and desperately trying to save it, you’re still a well-known name and PoC don’t have many opportunities in this industry and will take any job that’s offered to them. This includes everyone who worked on this video. Why?

Because People of Color are easily replaced. They’re expendable. 

Oh, you don’t want to work with her cause her entire music video is racist? Whatever. We’ll just find another director/choreographer/dancer. 

That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s how it works. So we suck it up and work with these people cause the industry doesn’t value us enough and not working only harms us, not the artist.

I mean, spewing random Japanese words that have nothing to do with your song is just short of saying Ching Chong Long Ting Tong, but you know. She’s just admiring the culture. 

Sure does remind me of this skit:

This is extremely racist and insulting. I’m an Asian American. I studied Japanese for two years. I’ve yet to begin to scratch the surface of Japanese culture and etiquette and I’m not even that confident or comfortable speaking or writing it because I don’t feel as if I know enough about it to say I can speak Japanese. 

Singing random words in a language you don’t know is racist when you use it for the sake of a song that just appropriates a part of their culture so much. 

Then you have your Japanese backup dancers. They all look the same, they’re silent, and “kawaii”. 

Of course, to you dear Avril, this sure doesn’t perpetuate the stereotype of cute, obedient, and submissive Asian women girls right? They’re just too damn cute and fit your set!

God. You’re turning 30. I don’t care if you want to act childish or dress a certain way. But grow the fuck up and stop making arguments that defend your racist actions and try to justify them by name-dropping everything Japanese.

You’re not Japanese. You don’t know Japanese. You don’t know Japanese culture. Your song doesn’t “honor” or “flatter” Japanese people or Japanese culture. It perpetuates the stereotype the West already holds and you try to pass it off as being cute and creative and appreciative and dedicate it to your Japanese fans.

No. Fuck you.

What really bothers me in high school is when there’s a presentation from people who are visiting the school and most of the class decides to act like fucking douchebags. Y’know these are people taking time out of their normal days, especially when they have jobs, to fucking teach you something. Show some goddamn respect you are fucking 18 years old. Grow the fuck up.

I see a lot of posts telling asexual folk that it’s okay to have sex and to even like sex. And it is okay!
but i havent seen any posts saying it’s okay to be sex repulsed. And I know a lot of folk who feel bad about being sex repulsed. Well, it is 1000% okay to sex repulsed or to dislike sex or to never have it for whatever reason. It’s all okay.

panic/anxiety attack

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

  1. Who should be on the 100 most influential people: A transwoman advocating for transgender rights and protecting others like herself
  2. Who's really on it: A 20-something musician who bases her career on shock value and uses her backup dancers as objects for her disgusting performances
