Wait, what? When is a 皇贵妃 almost equal in rank as an Empress (皇后). A 皇贵妃 is of the highest rank within the concubines during their period of time but they are nothing near an empress. An Empress is the only legal wife of an emperor. Also, the rank of 皇贵妃 did not happen until the later period of the Ming dynasty. Also, as others mentioned, a concubine can be a prostitute or common person. Concubines aren't only for the emperor, it is a common term used for any partners that a man brings in to the family. Very much like Anglo-Saxon England where men can only have one wife but many mistresses, it is the same with Ancient China with one legal wife and many concubines.
Thanks for the explanation! I was so confused because I saw her old cosplay images on this thread pages ago. I also remembered seeing some flyers with some female DJs and they all have the same sharp chins in the past. I kept assuming the images were shopped until I saw your post just now. The chin filler injections make a lot of sense.
This is the same thing that I thought when I saw the shirt. I understand that it may be more impactful to show people the image of the girls, but there are online news articles for people to search for. She can simply bring up the attack and talk about the underlying issues.
I feel that part of the reason why she seems so average in unedited photos is because of her edited images. She provided this unrealistic expectation to people looking at her edited face. When expectation exceeds reality too much, it is not alarming that people get "disappointed" and rated her as lower than they usually would. If she kept her real, unedited face on her social media, I feel that people, at least not everyone, will not consider her as just average. This is evident with some people here (including me) thinking her real face is actually quite attractive.
Is this a typo error? I totally agree with the first part of your statement that anyone can be a racist toward anyone else. This, therefore, includes people of colour being racist toward White. As long as you are feeling some sort of discrimination or prejudice against another person due to their race, it is racism. More often than not, racism is internalized. This is why many people say they are not racist, yet exhibit some type of racist mannerism. We see/heard of the generalized image of a race and developed a preconceived opinion of these people without actually getting to know them. This is racism. We get to know a person and then felt that our race is more superior than the person. This is also racism. Even when a person thinks that their own race is inferior to another race, it is still racism. However, if a person thinks people with tattoo are bad people, this is not racism. This is prejudice toward people with tattoo. Racism is multi-facet but it is always pertaining to the race.
Prejudiced is a preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. A racist is a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another. In Lily's case, she shows bias toward White and prejudices against Asians (e.g., old tweets about wanting to date White guys and not Asian guys). Her feelings and actions are very much race-driven, believing White is more superior than Asian. Therefore it should be classified under racism and not just simply prejudice.
