the waiter at olive garden has been grating my cheese for 6 hours now waiting for me to say when. customers are screaming. three people have died. I will not yield.
public school is so weird tho because you have this institution with all these potentially brilliant minds who will go on to do great things for humanity
and then you look down at your textbook and its like
Hey kid, what’s going on, want to check out my pit of souls?
Yeah, those souls sure are way deep down in that pit there huh?
Or… not? Get your hands out of my soul pit.
Okay, I’ll admit that’s apparently some impressive reach…
Like, really impressive reach….
THIS HAS ALWAYS BOTHERED ME BLESS THE OP
I don’t know why Frank insisted on bringing me to this dinner party, I don’t even know what to talk about and everyone’s already having a conversation, it’d be awkward to butt in. A steakhouse? Really? I’m a pescetarian, Frank. We’ve known each other ten years. Nobody’s even bothered to comment on my coat or offered a tummy rub. Your friends are shit, Frank.

MEDIA REPRESENTATION IS IMPORTANT
I don’t normally respond to these things, but this is so true.
I didn’t see any other people like me on television when I was growing up. There was a female anchor on the local Cantonese news that my father watched. There was Lucy Lui in Ally McBeal, which I was not allowed to watch due to the sexual content. Sometimes there would be a Chinese or Japanese woman in a movie, but her role was almost always that of the femme fatale or the damsel in distress, all heavily sexualised. There were men, like Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, Jet Li, all in action, kung fu roles. There was no one who was like me, and, just as importantly, no one I wanted to be like.
And, as I got older, it made me feel isolated. Maybe, I thought, there’s no one else like me. Most people, I was convinced, could just accept who they see on television as being like them. “They” are not bothered by this difference, so I shouldn’t be. But the fact was that I was bothered, even though I didn’t think I could express it. So I bottled it up inside, and let it eat at me.
There is, in general, a lack of representation for minorities. Not just in entertainment but in academia, government, and nearly every industry sector. Visibility is important not just because it’s politically correct or some twisted postcolonial apology, but because it helps people on individual levels feel less alone. It gives them a voice. And it plants that seed that you, too, can do what you dream.
