MY GRANDMA GOT ALL A’S IN “ETIQUETTE” (YES THAT WAS AN ACTUAL CLASS IN HER HIGH SCHOOL) AND SHE TOLD ME, “DEAR,” SHE SAID,
“YOU NEVER CROSS YOUR LEGS, YOU CROSS YOUR ANKLES. BUT THE GREAT THING ABOUT YOU LIVING IN THIS GENERATION IS YOU DON’T HAVE TO FOLLOW MY GENERATION’S RULES. SIT THE WAY YOU WANT. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UP YOUR SKIRT, JUST TELL THEM YOUR AUNT MARY WILL KILL THEM.”
WHICH IS TRUE
MY AUNT MARY HAD A SWITCHBLADE IN A SPECIAL POCKET OF HER NIGHTGOWN UNTIL THE DAY SHE DIED
the moral of this story is
1. Sit the way you want.
2. My great aunt Mary was a fucking badass.
OKAY YOU KNOW WHAT
The whole “cross your legs” deal bothers me A LOT.
A lot of my friends talk about back pain and I have them too, and it’s mostly because they tend to sit at desks too long with the wrong posture. Slouching is one of those wrong postures, but one that’s more common (esp among girls) is crossing their legs.
That’s right. Constantly crossing your legs causes your spine to twist in ways they’re not supposed to/that hurt kid’s posture. One of my friends required back braces for a while cause of this.
So I don’t care if you’re wearing a skirt, pants, what ever. DON’T CROSS YOUR LEGS while sitting. It’s a bad habit and if your panties show
Well to be fucking honest if a girl is sitting down you wont be able to see her panties unless you stoop down so it really isn’t the girl’s fault if you can see her panties??
Sums up their personalities pretty well.
Eddy: I can achieve anything
Edd: there’s a logical way to achieve what I want
Ed: there’s nothing standing in my way
Eddy hopping over the fence indicates his willingness to “cheat” the system, or to take a shortcut. Much like his schemes, it might end up being more work, but in his mind, cheating is the best way to get ahead.
Edd goes the neat and logical way, he’s straight forward. BUT, note that he closes the gate behind him rather than leaving it open. He’s incredibly meticulous and even if it’s more convenient to leave it open for anyone coming in behind him, he has to leave things neat, tidy and as he found them.
Ed is also is straight forward, he in fact is using the MOST direct route. But this route is one no one else would consider because it seems completely nonsensical. Which sums him up pretty well. The fact that it works for him is also fun to note. In general his earnestness and determination carries him through situations that most people would be stopped by.
I honestly never thought I’d see a critical analysis of Ed, Edd, and Eddy
*Jock cupping mouth in crowded high school cafeteria voice*
Ahahah I just saw a blog that reblogged a “the wind rises” gifset
If you think that movie was decent in any way you might want to read a history book about WW2 written by someone in countries that were colonized/ pillaged by Japan
That movie is literal trash why would anyone watch it
I can’t believe Laverne Cox didn’t make the time top 100 but Ben C and Amy Adams did. I call BS
one time a boy tried to pull my hijab off
i punched him in the face
closed fist, short swing, right in the jaw
there is a point where you stop trying to educate people and start making the consequences of their racist bullshit real fuckin clear.
Fuck yeah you do
Hannibal looks like a really cute show ok I mean from what i’ve seen on my dash it’s basically a nice story about a single dad who happens to be a cannibal in is spare time and his daughter and his on-again-off-again boyfriend?? i think i’ll watch an episode
PEOPLES HEADS ARE ON FIRE AND PEOPLES FLESH IS PEELED OFF THEIR BACKS WHAT THE FUCK ABORT ABORT
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
white people, this is why nobody trusts you
yeah, so white women fetishize, objectify, and commodify woc as well and treat us like props.
this is why we don’t trust you.
In response to your logic, please find attached a picture of Hyuna Kim “fetishizing” and “commodifying” american culture. Yes I know she’s Korean, but J-pop and K-pop are relatively close in style, so don’t be pernickety. This use of other cultures isn’t a one way thing; as far as I know, American culture isn’t only basketball shirts and sunglasses.
Also, your Katy Perry picture is a poor example of the message you’re trying to convey. She, as well as her backing dancers, is in traditional Japanese dress, and there is not a cupcake or submissive sex kitten in sight.
And to add to that, what makes me really angry is that you are complaining about white women being racist and culturally stereotyping women of colour, and your response is what? “This is why nobody trusts you” - racism. Talk about hypocritical, you’re making sweeping statements about the Caucasian population as untrustworthy because a few dumb commercialised bitches in America made some music videos. Get off your high horse, just because you feel victimised by something doesn’t give you the right to do the same to others.
I didn’t want to get involved in this debate, I made a post yesterday and deleted it because I really can’t be bothered to deal with the inevitable backlash, but really this is getting stupid I’ve seen so many posts about it since then and it’s getting on my nerves.
"Yeah she’s Korean, but Korea and Japan are basically the same, right guys??" ….
Katy Perry and her dancers were NOT in “traditional dress”, jesus christ.
They were in sexed up kimonos with thigh-high slits in the sides, and face paint. Her “kimono” (which actually looks more like a cheongsam..) has a chest window! It’s a very poor, sexualised interpretation of geisha.
The fact that anyone would think that is how geisha actually dress shows how influential this type of representation can be. Here’s a photo of a geisha so you can see the difference.
Not to mention in the k-pop picture they don’t have a bunch of Caucasian girls dressed in basketball jerseys dancing around for them. They are just taking the clothes and that particular style of dress. American artists are using Japanese girls, not Japanese fashion, there is a big difference. I’ve had guys tell me they have “yellow fever”, that “Japanese girls get kinky” and a guy even showed me a picture of another Japanese girl in wearing a kitten costume “begging for treats” when I mention that I’m Japanese. People feel they have the right to say some straight up creepy things to me because I am Japanese and this is the image they have of my culture and consequently me.
Also do your research before you want to try and defend pop stars exploiting Japanese girls because Katy Perry is NOWHERE NEAR “TRADITIONAL WEAR.”
