Thoughts on movies, pop culture, Asian American identity, Taiwan, English teaching, and, occasionally life.
... really? Really???That's ridiculous. I mean, not only is it insulting and racist and rude, it wouldn't work, really. I thought people only did that in movies. You don't even have an accent. Well, okay, you've been in the Pacific Northwest a bit too long, and when you're tired you might pass for Canadian, but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count.Still, if there were ever a reason to cease speaking English entirely, that would be it. You could totally do that 'I'm insulting you to your face, but smiling!' thing that some people do when they know you don't speak their language.
I'm on the receiving end of rude, offensive and well-meant, but still just plain stupid behavior from Taiwanese people almost every day. Does that mean it's OK for me to write something called "Reasons which make it difficult for me not to hate asian people"?Or are you just suffering from an irony deficiency?
Ah yes, self righteousness. Yet another reason to love white people.
Been there, my friend. Fortunately, my white mother-in-law is very savvy and quite progressive so I've never had to deal with anything like that from her. She can spot white privilege a mile away and will call it out if necessary. People like her give me hope and keep me from becoming completely jaded.
@anonymousWhine all you want about how boo fucking hard it is for you in Taiwan. See if anyone gives a fuck. Last time I checked, the author of a blog has the right to write what they want. Don't like it ? Go troll somewhere else, you entitled, self-righteous cunt.
