Mixed Korean/White (Swedish)/18. Ex-boyfriend thought it was OK to fetishisize my East Asian heritage one drunken night… Don’t want to go into details but it involved calling my privates “sushi roll” and that I tasted of “sweet and sour sauce”. Also, once when we were on our way to one of his friends’ party, he warned me that this guy had a fetish for East Asian girls while looking intently at me, as to suggest that I would stay away from him… I was so disgusted by this.
I had a very hard time explaining why it made me uncomfortable and of course, I got the response “why do you always take everything so seriously?”. I became tired of taking his crap and I realized that I couldn’t be with someone that didn’t even try to understand. Safe to say that it didn’t work out and we broke up.
Don’t put up with crap from anyone, especially the one you fall in love with. They’re the person that’s supposed to understand and respect everything about you. Stay angry, Asian girls <3

owning-my-truth:

From their condemnation of Donald Sterling to their vote lodged for Obama, white people (and white “liberals” especially) show their true colors whenever another black person is lynched and murdered. They have no interest in dismantling white supremacy or working against racist power structures, as their interest in “progressive” causes only continues as long as black lives are still seen as inherently valueless in our society. If you can vote for Obama with one hand and suddenly be mum when black children are being victimized and lynched and their communities invaded by police with military equipment when they say enough is enough, I have no interest in you as an “ally.” If you were outspoken about Donald Sterling and yet you take a completely ahistorical view and paint Mike Brown’s case as one “where you need more facts” or is a “matter of opinion,” you are a fucking hypocrite. I have no time for any of this anymore and all of the POC invoking respectability politics and the worst silencing tactics of white people to derail these discussions. A black child was effectively lynched in front of his community and all you can tell me is “not all white people” and deploy more white derailment tactics so that we do not have a serious discussion about how violently antiblack our country is? No I have no time or patience for you either. At the end of the day, these people are all disgusting and my heart is with all of those in Ferguson right now and Mike Brown’s family as they continue to demand justice. And to all of these other folks with their bullshit, all I can say at this point is “Fuck all of them”.

AMEN!!

Day 29 of September’s #SizeDoesn’tMatter Yoga Challenge: Vrishikasana (Scorpion Pose)
Want a little more guidance? Click here.
I’m working on scorpion in forearm stand- feel free to work any variation of this pose for today. This pose is really intense- I am working on being able to hold it for more than just a couple of breaths. At this point, I’m not even immediately focused on moving it away from the wall- for the record, I ALWAYS use a wall to work into this pose. I received a lot of guidance on this pose via various Kathryn Budig flows on Yogaglo and I’ve actually posted a couple of different resources on my Facebook page to help you practice this pose- link is in my header. Basically, always focus on melting your chest and your heart forward as opposed to bending your knees. As your chest melts, your legs will naturally drift further down. It is really important to be very warmed up before attempting this pose- don’t just try to rush into it. It is much better to chill in #dolphinpose, raising your legs one at a time, or just getting used to the sensation of #pinchamayurasana than to bust your ass because you thought you needed to be a fucking scorpion. Yoga is awesome, injuring yourself is not.
