Calvin Johnson, Chicago, and Chinese Food: hiziram ahr42p memecucker what if i told you that a lot of "Americanized" versions of foods were actually the product of immigrant experiences and are not "bastardized versions" ace-and-ranty That's actually fascinating, does anyone have any examples? memecucker Chinese-American food is a really good example of this and this article provides a good intro to the history http://firstwefeast.com/eat/2015/03/illustrated-history-of- americanized-chinese-food voxiferous l took an entire class about Italian American immigrant cuisine and how it's a product of their unique immigrant experience The TL;DR is that many Italian immigrants came from the south (the poor) part of ltaly, and were used to a mostly vegetable-based diet. However, when they came to the US they found foods that rich northern Italians were depicted as eating, such as sugar, coffee, wine, and meat, available for prices they could afford for the very first time. This is why Italian Americans were the first to combine meatballs with pasta, and why a lot of Italian American food is sugary and/or fattening. Italian American cuisine is a celebration of Italian immigrants' newfound access to foods they hadn't been able to access back home. (Source: Cinotto, Simone.

At my college we used to have South Korean exchange students, and one year we had two students who were both in their 20s but one was like 24 and the other was maybe 22. Whenever decisions were made, the 22-year-old would always defer to the 24-year-old. He was the one who would decide things for both of them. Because in their culture even when it comes to peers you pay respect to those older than you. That’s a concept that’s pretty much foreign in Western culture. Definitely not an “Anglo white people” thing.</p>

Anaconda, Bitch, and Clothes: tooiconic Shaving is part of the patriarchy!!! No woman does it for herselfl! screams the girl who grows three thin little blonde hairs, who isnt burdened by ingrown hairs and constantly feeling itchy when she doesn't shave. respectthefemalebody You won't feel itchy once it gets long enough. And I mean, shaving is Women have been shaving our legs less than 100 years. It started as a gimmick for razor companies to sell their products to women while men were fighting ww2 Have you ever even seen what your natural adult leg hair looks like fully grown? What, do you think women are born with a gene that compels us to shave? tooiconic Hi, you don't know my body better than I do I had fully grown leg hair and all over body hair by 11 years old and I was an itchy, miserable mess. The leg hair in particular would touch my sheets, even my own clothes, and make me so itchy that I couldn't sleep anymore. The same thing with my pubic hair and leg hair still happens as an adult even after not shaving for about 5 days. Shut the hell up with this patriarchy bullshit respectthefemalebody Why do you think more women shave their legs than men? What do you think the word patriarchy means? Dont know why youre bothering. She acts personally attacked by every little thing feminists do, lol. She fails to even realise that no one would have a problem with "thick black hairs" if razor companies hadnt made women their target buyers. tooiconic ?77??? Did you just say that some women have thick leg because of razors??? I'm Italian. Italians have thick hair. What part of "l was tchy and horribly uncomfortable by age 11 didn't you understand? Please tell me you're not one of those people who thinks shaving makes your hair thicker. Please. Im saying u wouldnt be insecure about it if women shaving was never a thing to begin with tooiconic Where did I say I was insecure? I started shaving because I was ITCHY. What part of that is confusing? You think your itchy but its your mind tricking you, due to insecurities. spookysugarr Holy shit @tooiconic this bitch thinks she knows more about your body than you do Im a psychiatrist, shes likely suffering from ocd, anxiety disorder & mild Schizophrenia Also are u her personal white knight, every time someone disagrees with her ur here taking her hot loads to prove ur devotion spookysugarr Dude, you're not her doctor And no, but thinking just because you have a profession you know what's going on with people's body's from a Tumblr post, really? spookysugarr Help her what? You don't know if she's already talked about this with her own doctor or therapist or physiatrist or whatever, you can't just go diagnosing people like that on the internet. People self diagnose all the time and that's dangerous I don't know why it's so hard to believe you can feel itchy with hair on your body? That's my top reason to shave tbh @tooiconic message me and we will work through your phobia of leg hair, together. anti-sjw-rebel She doesn't have a phobia of leg hair. She shaves because it makes her uncomfortable and itchy Quit trollin dude. What she does with her hair is her own business not yours figgernaggotlove Some people don't realise they need help until it's too late tooiconic Please don't give this idiot anymore attention Shaving your leg hair is not only oppressive, but a sign of mental illness. I should know, I'm a random guy on the internet.
