Because the anti-ess jay logic warriors have come out in full force on this post

lol I don’t give a fuck if you say yukata doesn’t have any “sacred spiritual significance to the Japanese culture.” 

If a Japanese person says “don’t you dare fucking wear it and joke about my culture,” you RESPECT their wishes. 

If you’re not Japanese, YOU DON’T GET TO DECIDE THAT IT’S NOT REINFORCING STEREOTYPES ABOUT THEIR CULTURE. 

Why do Asians get pissed off when white people parade around in their cultural dress? 

Maybe.

Maybe. 

MAYBE BECAUSE WHEN THE ASIAN IMMIGRANTS CAME OVER TO THE US, THEY WERE FORCED TO ABANDON THEIR CULTURAL DRESS TO “FIT IN”. 

MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE THEY WERE WHISKED AWAY TO GET FITTED FOR WESTERN CLOTHES AS SOON AS THEY STEPPED OFF THE SHIPS BECAUSE THEY HAD TO PRESENT THEMSELVES AS UN-THREATENING TO WHITE PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE. 

MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAD TO ABANDON THEIR OWN CULTURE BECAUSE WHITE PEOPLE HELD IT UP AS PROOF THAT THEY DIDN’T WANT TO BE AMERICAN AND WERE THE SOLE REASON FOR ALL OF AMERICAN SOCIETY’S TROUBLES. 

MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE EVEN AFTER REJECTING THEIR HERITAGE, THEIR BIRTHRIGHT, THEY WERE STILL TREATED LIKE DOG SHIT. 

MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE THEY’RE TREATED LIKE DOG SHIT NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO WITH REGARDS TO THEIR CULTURE, BUT WHEN THE WHITE PEOPLE WANT TO PLAY DRESS UP AND DO TEA CEREMONIES, NOBODY GOES SCREAMING YELLOW PERILLLLLLLLLLLL KILL ALL THE ASIANS.

MAYBE THAT’S WHY. 

MAYBE BECAUSE THIS SHIT IS STILL HAPPENING. 

MAYBE PEOPLE ARE REALLY FUCKING BITTER THAT THEY CAN’T EVEN EMBRACE THEIR BIRTHRIGHT WITHOUT HAVING PEOPLE SCREAMING “CHINK GO BACK TO CHINA” AT THEM. 

FUCK YOU. SERIOUSLY. FUCK ALL OF YOU. 

this is important.
