pretty tired of seeing this hair trope on asian characters
EDIT: because three examples wasn’t enough for some of you:


OH WOW.
Why is this a thing?


As soon as I saw this post I thought about Mei Melancon as Psylocke in X-men: The Last Stand

but really. why is this even a trope?anyone know the origin of this?

As an east asian woman with blue hair, i am probably not the right person to be complaining about this trope, but whatever, this is the Internet.
I think the theme stems from a few places:
- to let the white ppl know a) sometimes asians aren’t just “submissive china dolls” cue the shock and horror, and b) that this particular character is cool and quirky and not like all the other boring no-name asians
- to further exoticize and other the character from the probably all-white cast
- in the EXTREMELY unlikely event there are two asian women in the cast, the people in charge don’t want the white people in the audience to be confused with who is who and since all asians look the same, they have to give one of them weird hair

I have never noticed this thing but it is SUCH a THING!

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

Well somebody finally gets it!

Every school should be like mine: four hours a day, three time slots you can attend (morning at 8, afternoon at 12, evening at 5), online classes in case you miss a day, english and math direct instruction, bus stop close by, you can graduate early if you want, you can switch time slots if you need to, and they respect if you have a mental disorder/want to be addressed by a different name or by diff pronouns. You can listen to music, too, and everyone is super chill. Small classes where everyone minds their own business and gets their work done. That is how school should be.



…. OR
Heres an idea!
Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn, and you lot are whining about “SCHOOLS UNFAIR  CHANGE LESSON TIMES”


Alright buddy i’m gonna need you to sit the fuck down because i’m gonna lay some shit on you. I’m sure you had a great time in high school or college since you had the nerve to tell everybody to go to bed at a reasonable time. I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but maybe the reason why we don’t go to bed at a reasonable hour is because we can’t? WOW SHOCKING I KNOW. 
Now I don’t know what high school was like for everyone else but for me it was fucking hell. During my senior year in high school i had over 3 hours worth of homework everyday. I get off school at 8 pm because of after school extra classes. I get home at around 9:30 and shower and it’s already 11. Well better do my homework if I want to pass this class!!! Time sure does fly when I do homework because wow it’s 3 am already. Time to finally sleep because wow humans need to sleep to have a healthy mind???? And then DING it’s 6am better wake up for school to start this routine all over again for the next 10 months. Over the span of my high school life I had over 10 emotional break downs and depression because of school. Shocking right? School can actually make some people sad and angry.
How the fuck would you feel if you were crammed in a classroom with over 40 students learning the same thing except you couldn’t understand shit so you had to study extra hard and spend more time on your homework than everyone else? Terrible right. Not everybody breezed thru school like you did. 
School is different for everybody and everybody’s stress levels are different. Some schools give a fuck ton of homework while some don’t. Some people had fun in school and some didn’t. And I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about it like this but some people actually work after school. Wow students making a living to support their family that’s fucking crazy I didn’t even know that was possible. And don’t even get me started on AP students.
“Jfc our ancestors beat up bears and dinosaurs at the crack of dawn,” Are you seriously comparing us to our ancestors which we had nothing to do with? WHO GIVES A SHIT. DID THEY HAVE OVER 8 HOURS OF SCHOOL? NO. DID THEY HAVE THE STRESS OF NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR FUTURE? PROBABLY. BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WE WORKED HARDER THAN THEM, WE HAVE A TOUGHER LIFE, ADULTS EXPECT US TO AMOUNT TO SOMETHING BUT WILL WE? WE DON’T KNOW. WE HAVE MORE STRESS ON OUR MINDS THAN A PSYCHOPATH WITH A MENTAL DISORDER. AND YET WE’RE STILL LIVING, BREATHING AND WORKING HARD SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT GOING TO BED AT A REASONABLE HOUR BECAUSE WE FUCKING CAN’T.

HOLY SHIT THANK YOUthank you SO MUCH //applause

ALSO DINOSAURS WERE LONG EXTINCT BEFORE HUMANS EXSISTED

also, comparing the past with the present like that is kind of harming to progressing forwards.it’s like saying “you found out a healthier way to live and to stay well? nonsense! my gramps broke his back and legs in the fields, it built character, he’s a real man! you’re lazy if you can’t live up to our ancestors incredibly horrendous life whom survived on low income in dead end jobs, that was nowhere near the scientific developed society we have today where we discover new and better things for ourselves! No I say! they beat children in the schools in the 50s! it was good for them, they were taught a lesson! kids are so sensitive today! never mind back in the days they might’ve been beaten at home as well as school and got trauma for life! No, people who say beating kids today to teach them a lesson is bad is wrong! you’re all just weaklings!”Like see where I’m going with this?it’s kind of a stupid argument to make, to say that how it was before, or for you.. means that new ideas are weak and wrong, is stupid. We discover new things about people all the time, we discover that.."wait, forcing my child makes them sad and hate me? who knew" see my point?… I’m probably not making much sense but hopefully you get my point.

"Do you know what a mandala is?" 
"Um, those are those round Buddhist art things." 
“The Tibetan monks make them out of dyed sand laid out into big beautiful designs. And when they’re done, after days and weeks of work, they wipe it all away.” 
"Wow, that’s, that’s a lot." 
"Try to look at your experience here as a mandala, Chapman. Work hard to make something as meaningful and beautiful as you can. And when you’re done, pack it in and know it was all temporary. You have to remember that, it’s all temporary.”
