You know it’s summer when…
Ugh, there’s nothing more beautiful than a basket of freshly picked peaches.
Asian & Black girls are constantly pinned against each other because we represent opposite sides of the “non-white people” spectrum. Asians are “submissive, quiet, and shy” while black girls are “aggressive, loud, extroverted” and whenever these paths cross, white people will get angry
They constantly tell Asian girls that they are the “good” minority, and in the same breath sexualize these women by taking and posting pictures of them clad in just swimsuits and japanese school girl uniforms
Whites tell us black girls that we are too loud and abrasive, but will put us on for Versace and Givenchy and praise our skin color and wish for our bone structure
Asian and Black girls are in a constant cycle of Idolization, dehumanization and fetishization and we need to break out of this vicious cycle and stand against white supremacy and this constructed racist institution
One more time for people thinking that I dont care about solidarity! That I dont care about creating a safe world for both black AND asian women! For people who think im ignorant to the hardships that “the good minority face”
Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them.
The peaches we eat today look very little like the first peaches planted. We can thank the Chinese farmers who first domesticated the fruit for kicking off the millennia of breeding for perfection.

The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.
Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.
i don’t care if it’s a only a joke, please don’t make comments about how someone’s choice of field of study isn’t going to take them anywhere because it can be a great source of stress and your joke won’t help.
also, destroy the idea that we should only pursue dreams if they are likely to give you status in this capitalist piece-of-shit society.
Client: I threw out that black pen, it was out of ink.
Me: What black pen?
Client: The one that was lying on your tablet.
Me: You threw out my $150 Wacom pen?
Client: I tried writing with it and it didn’t work. It must’ve been out of ink.
UGHHHH FUCK YOU I WOULD BE SO MAD UGHHHHH
