Alive, Bitch, and Definitely: 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. 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

Omg, True, and Weird: Cop: Can I see your drivers license? Her: Eww no I look like garbage in it. Cop: OMG same ok nevermind. @wolf This is long, so I apologize for that. I’ve never had to tell this story with enough detail to actually explain it all the way, but it is true and it happened when I was about 6 years old. In a quiet room if you press your ear against a pillow you can hear your heartbeat. As a kid, the muffled, rhythmic beats sounded like soft footsteps on a carpeted floor, and so as a kid almost every night – just as I was about to drift off to sleep – I would hear these footsteps and I would be ripped back to consciousness, terrified. For my entire childhood I lived with my mother in a fairly nice neighborhood that was in a transitional phase – people of lower economic means were gradually moving in, and my mother and I were two of these people. We lived in the kind of house you see being transported in two pieces on the interstate, but my mom took good care of it. There were a lot of woods surrounding the neighborhood that I would play in and explore during the day, but at night – as things often do to a kid – they took on a more sinister feeling. This coupled with the fact that, due to the nature of our house, there was a fairly large crawlspace underneath filled my mind with imaginary monsters and inescapable scenarios which would consume my thoughts when I was awoken by the footsteps. I told my mom about the footsteps and she said that I was just imagining things; I persisted enough that she blasted my ears with water from a turkey baster once just to placate me, since I thought that would help. Of course it didn’t. Despite all the creepiness and footsteps the only weird thing that ever happened was that every now and then I would wake up on the bottom bunk despite having gone to sleep on the top, but this wasn’t really weird since I’d sometimes get up to piss or get something to drink and could remember just going back to sleep on the bottom bunk (I’m an only child so it didn’t matter). This would happen once or twice a week, but waking up on the bottom bunk wasn’t too terrifying. But one night I didn’t wake up on the bottom bunk.

This is long, so I apologize for that. I’ve never had to tell this story with enough detail to actually explain it all the way, but it is tr...

Birthday, Dude, and Friends: EVERYBODY'S GOT SPRING FEVER!

Like they hang out, go to movies, hold each other’s birthday parties, and love each other unconditionally. When dude bro friend gets excited about the Super Bowl, they all go to his place with chips and drinks and watch the game. When blonde girl gets excited about the next Grey’s Anatomy finale, they go to her house with tissues and chocolate and watch the finale. And when goth friend says “this concert looks marginally less depressing than most of the garbage in my life,” they know he’s SUPER excited and they all ride together to the concert and party with him. Yes. I like this.</p> </blockquote> <p>They love their goth friend</p> </blockquote>
