memecucker: memecucker: ghdf i’m sorry i need to bitch to someone about this… i just find it incredible how this person flat out admits that they don’t think mainland chinese people have anything useful to say about how elements from their own culture are used. what do they even think culture is if it can be completely separated from the people who take part in shaping it? not to mention the false dichotomy between evil westerners who would only ever wear something that came from another country for FASHION AND MOCKERY and the mystical INSIDERS who are all perfect experts on the history of the garb and would only ever ‘wear it for cultural reasons’, whatever the vague cultural reasons cited here are. what about chinese people wearing the cheongsam for fashion? this is so exhausting now thats what i call some ethno-cultural nationalism “actually wear it for cultural reasons” does this person know what “culture” means lol This dress was invented in the 1920s. There are people still alive that predate it.  This is like that Futurama episode where the king or whatever of Zoidberg’s planet talks about a tradition of ritual combat thats 15 years old but theyre still gonna call it a tradition : Hi, I'm an actual Chinese person. Input from Chinese people from China is useless here, since China is...mostly Chinese people. If a white person wears a cheongsam, it's trendy or whatever. If a Chinese person wears a cheongsam to a formal event, they are almost definitely going to be scrutinised/exoticised/told to go back to their own country/etc. So until people that actually wear it for cultural reasons can do so without that kind of garbage in Western countries, l'd really rather not have outsiders do SO Like Reply 18m memecucker: memecucker: ghdf i’m sorry i need to bitch to someone about this… i just find it incredible how this person flat out admits that they don’t think mainland chinese people have anything useful to say about how elements from their own culture are used. what do they even think culture is if it can be completely separated from the people who take part in shaping it? not to mention the false dichotomy between evil westerners who would only ever wear something that came from another country for FASHION AND MOCKERY and the mystical INSIDERS who are all perfect experts on the history of the garb and would only ever ‘wear it for cultural reasons’, whatever the vague cultural reasons cited here are. what about chinese people wearing the cheongsam for fashion? this is so exhausting now thats what i call some ethno-cultural nationalism “actually wear it for cultural reasons” does this person know what “culture” means lol This dress was invented in the 1920s.

I am a barbie girl in a barbie hell: silverbellsolicitor It kind of really confuses me when Barbie commercials have little girls dressing them up and brushing their hair Like no Barbie is not about fashion. Barbie is about collecting as many dolls as you can get your grubby 7 year old hands on and dominating the living room with your expansive empire of plastic women. Barbie is about creating intricate social structures and spicy inter-family conflicts between town house residents. Barbie is about formulating complex back stories for tortured Ken dolls with emotional scars. It's about creating near-sadistic dramatic plot twists that split up marriages and cause that one Barbie you really dislike to be ceremoniously tossed down the stairs in order to be offed by the jealous ex-wife of Ken #4 kerryrenaissance Yes, but how do you make it into a marketable commercial that won't freak parents and caregivers o ut? quasi-normalcy l've always had the impression that advertisers don't really understand how girls play with their toys. mappysnappy When I played with Barbies I had this thing called The Dead Pit" which was a purple bratz laundry hamper. So whenever a Barbie got killed off she would go in there. And what I would do was I would carry her to the dead pit while singing the dead pit song. The dead pit song was just saying "The dead pit over and over again in different tones. Anyway, once I finally reached the pit l would announce (name) has died." And drop her in. I would wait a few moments. Then, I would violently shake the hamper while shrieking, pretending to be the tortured souls of dead barbies from the underworld. I thought it was hilarious.
