“Facial Threading…”Asian girl Horror Story. (via coolstorybhaijaan)
for some desi people, coming out to your parents is literally not an option. it’s not that they’re homophobic or disgusted or anything (although i’m sure that’s part of it). it’s that they don’t even acknowledge that anything other than straight can exist.
how do you come out as someone who doesn’t exist? how do you come out as something you don’t have a word for, were never given the option to be?
this is so true…this is so incredibly true.
hahah thank you! :D
"So, er, for the non South Asians in the audience who perhaps didn’t understand why there was applause, the British built a really extensive railway system throughout India before they left, and it wasn’t so much for transportation for the Indian people, it was because it’s really hard to plunder on foot."
Hari Kondabolu’s joke about the British colonisation of India [x]
Even when I think Urban Outfitters couldn’t possibly disappoint me any further, boy do they prove me wrong (time and time again).
"Face Gems"? Really? I believe you mean “bindi”. Did you not learn your lesson after the Navajo lawsuit? ~Keep your hands off things that aren’t yours, culture vulture~
(The models don’t even appear to be South Asian, you aren’t even TRYING to be slightly sensitive.)
This same company has made headlines numerous times within the past couple years for having an “Obama/black” t-shirt color option, t-shirts reading “Eat Less”, and shirts displaying patches that clearly resemble the patches worn on the clothing of Jewish people during the Holocaust. All the while, a simple shirt proclaiming “Legalize gay marriage” got pulled from stores. Additionally, they steal ideas from independent designers who have fought tooth and nail to have their products produced and sold, only to get ripped off.
***Please, please, please do not give this company your money. Literally everything they sell can be found in other stores, and usually for half the price.***
