We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
I’ve said this before, but she just doesn’t know how to dress for her body type. She dresses like she’s long-waisted, but her torso is short with longer legs. The way she generally dresses just makes her torso look even shorter, hence she looks super top heavy when she’s more of a pear.
Thanks 😅, I try. You’re fine, I totally get your frustration with her. I think you’re right, that she’s not 100% comfortable with her heritage, and tries to look more like the part of it she feels is acceptable. She’s a bit self-hating when it comes to her ethnicity, but still tries to play it up for everyone else since most Americans see her as “exotic”. Another example of this is Pokimane, who tries to look white/Asian. I feel like these girls just haven’t reached the point in their lives where they feel comfortable being themselves, but still try to act like they have it all. They want to be these badass, self-confident “queens”, but most people see right through the act eventually, probably why she has people calling her out on her bs all the time...
Emily is a mess, but god this post is worse. Nationality is about where you’re born. Ethnicity is about a range of factors, including ancestry and culture. She’s completely correct in her use and she doesn’t have to be born in Asia to be considered Asian. Just because I was born in the states makes me no less Brazilian than you. Both of my parents are 100% Brazilian, I was raised primarily with Brazilian culture, and I speak Portuguese and maintain Brazilian citizenship. As for the bullying, it’s plausible, especially if the school she went to isn’t particularly diverse (common in smaller cities/towns). I’m nearly white-passing, but white kids sure knew I wasn’t and made sure I knew I wasn’t like them.
In my opinion, modern usage of the word has definitely been claimed by Latin-Americans. I mean, most Latin-European people that I know don’t identify as “Latinos” when they get to the states. They identify as European/whatever their nationality is. I consider myself Latina, but have Portuguese family that would tick the “White” box on any document in the US.
Lol, probably because Zirene made them look bad/unprofessional by airing anything remotely resembling a grievance about how the whole housing situation was handled. These immature little kids can’t handle criticism of any kind, hence why they insulate themselves in their little communities and surround themselves with friends who will never call out their shit.
