The Fremont Troll was kind of cool because 1) 10 Things I Hate About You and 2) just the overall thought of turning a used-to-be-drug-infested area into a work of art. Talk about creative problem solving.

To me, it was frightening in person.  It was bigger than expected and maybe I was staring at it for too long but I kept wondering where it wanders off to when it comes alive at night. Because we all know that’s what statues of trolls do. 


The most important thing my mom taught me about relationships:

You need the ability to listen.

My mom never says “I love you.” Neither does my dad, really. While I cannot confirm I experience everything written in the articles about first and second generation Asian American families, I can honestly say I don’t remember the last time I heard those three words from my parents’ mouths.

Just now my mom called me and asked if I brought a jacket because it got chilly out. The phone call was literally 15 seconds long. She sort of yelled at me after I answered “No, I didn’t bring a jacket”, but this is what I heard:

"I love you."

I was listening.








I don’t care who the fuck you are, or what you’re doing. You can take 3 seconds to reblog this.

I miss you..

That last comment broke my heart..

please never give up.

I will never forget you..

R.I.P my mothers cousin

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording
