My name is Deanna. Will be 22 in July. I live in Indiana currently but would like to move to California in the furture. I am a lesbian. I like a lot of things which is mostly what will be shared on here. That and a lot of opinions. I'm currently single. Right now I'm just hoping to improve myself and start to just be me, even if other people don't like it.

Avril Lavigne’s racist “Hello Kitty” video has been pulled from YouTube

Every time the beat drops in Avril Lavigne’s new music video for “Hello Kitty,” she shouts “Kawaii!” like it’s a battle cry. A really racist battle cry.

On Tuesday, Lavigne released the video (since pulled from YouTube) for her new song “Hello Kitty.” The song is offensively bad. The video is offensively racist. In it, Lavigne — like Gwen Stefani before her — bastardizes Japanese Kawaii culture. And she, of course, has a troupe of unsmiling Japanese dancers behind her.

white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when

white people, this is why nobody trusts you

yeah, so white women fetishize, objectify, and commodify woc as well and treat us like props.

this is why we don’t trust you. 

In response to your logic, please find attached a picture of Hyuna Kim “fetishizing” and “commodifying” american culture. Yes I know she’s Korean, but J-pop and K-pop are relatively close in style, so don’t be pernickety. This use of other cultures isn’t a one way thing; as far as I know, American culture isn’t only basketball shirts and sunglasses.

Also, your Katy Perry picture is a poor example of the message you’re trying to convey. She, as well as her backing dancers, is in traditional Japanese dress, and there is not a cupcake or submissive sex kitten in sight.

And to add to that, what makes me really angry is that you are complaining about white women being racist and culturally stereotyping women of colour, and your response is what? “This is why nobody trusts you” - racism. Talk about hypocritical, you’re making sweeping statements about the Caucasian population as untrustworthy because a few dumb commercialised bitches in America made some music videos. Get off your high horse, just because you feel victimised by something doesn’t give you the right to do the same to others.

I didn’t want to get involved in this debate, I made a post yesterday and deleted it because I really can’t be bothered to deal with the inevitable backlash, but really this is getting stupid I’ve seen so many posts about it since then and it’s getting on my nerves.

"Yeah she’s Korean, but Korea and Japan are basically the same, right guys??" ….

Katy Perry and her dancers were NOT in “traditional dress”, jesus christ.

They were in sexed up kimonos with thigh-high slits in the sides, and face paint. Her “kimono” (which actually looks more like a cheongsam..) has a chest window! It’s a very poor, sexualised interpretation of geisha.
The fact that anyone would think that is how geisha actually dress shows how influential this type of representation can be. Here’s a photo of a geisha so you can see the difference.

Not to mention in the k-pop picture they don’t have a bunch of Caucasian girls dressed in basketball jerseys dancing around for them. They are just taking the clothes and that particular style of dress. American artists are using Japanese girls, not Japanese fashion, there is a big difference. I’ve had guys tell me they have “yellow fever”, that “Japanese girls get kinky” and a guy even showed me a picture of another Japanese girl in wearing a kitten costume “begging for treats” when I mention that I’m Japanese. People feel they have the right to say some straight up creepy things to me because I am Japanese and this is the image they have of my culture and consequently me.

Also do your research before you want to try and defend pop stars exploiting Japanese girls because Katy Perry is NOWHERE NEAR “TRADITIONAL WEAR.”

What is China doing to Tibetan Mastiffs?

Demand for Chinese Tibetan Mastiffs are on the rise both within the country and abroad. Americans have been showing particular interest in these overbred, typey dogs with too much fur, heavier bone structure, weaker joints, excess skin folds on the face, and sometimes more aggressive dispositions. A few of these kennels are guilty of torture breeding; the dogs have skin folds covering or closing off their eyes almost completely by just a few months old. I’d be interested in seeing the eyes of adult dogs whose fur is so thick that they are regularly obstructed (constant eye cover will cause gunky build-up that isn’t a good sign of healthy eyes; make sure any eye coverage is not obstructive).

America’s dog circuit is often targeted for exaggerated, typey dogs in the show ring. However, the American Tibetan Mastiff pictured above is nearly identical to historical photos and paintings of the breed. The dogs are traditionally moderate and healthy with typical guardian dispositions. They are intense dogs requiring an experienced handler willing to work with training and socialization.

I truly hope this exaggerated standard does not become the desired norm in Tibetan Mastiffs. Until recently, they were relatively rare and managed to avoid too much interest by unscrupulous breeders, but that time is over, as their numbers in China are on the rise (particularly for the highly sought-after red Tibetan Mastiffs, believed to bring good luck).

Honestly, who in their right mind would prefer the dog on the bottom over the one on top?  ugghhh
