THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII

No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.

And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.

So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3


!!!!!

NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!

This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”

All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)

Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.   

so are you telling me that Japan’s punk phase was really the kawaii phase

Yeah, but started with Japanese women and girls instead of by angry white guys.

SO MUCH JEWELLERY. All of it handmade, most of it one of a kind. Many of my pieces are made with discontinued or cleaned vintage reclaimed beads, so no more identical pieces can ever be made.

Latina Woman Working Four Part-Time Jobs Dies in Car While Trying to Nap

latinosexuality:

I added the Latina part. I know Maria Fernandes struggle. it is my struggle. it’s probably some of yours too. remember this when folks say working poor don’t work hard enough and that’s why we are poor. 

I worked 8 hours Sunday, 12 hours Monday, 15 Tuesday, 12 Wednesday-Friday, plus 2-4 hours each day on my online business. On my days off, I will probably work 10 hours on the online business (inventory, packing orders, answering questions, ordering, listing items, etc.) . At my day job, we make $1.50 an hour plus tips. Tips are as low as $25 on some shifts. We do not get breaks- we are ‘on’ all the time. If there is a customer, we are ‘on’. If there are no customers, clean, and then we can take a break to eat something, but if someone calls or comes in, we are right back on. Of course, we are liable for all taxes, roughly 20% of our income because it’s under the table… but if you get food stamps in FL, you have to report income or else they only give you help for 3 months out of every 3 years. You have to have a job to qualify. And if the state knows you have income, the Feds know you have income, so you have to report to the IRS. With no W-2s, you have to pay Medicaid, Social Security, everything. But good luck saving for that.

People ask “why don’t you just work somewhere else?” Well, sure, on my off day (if I get one this week) I can look for jobs. On top of all the hours I work every day, I also scan CL, the newspaper, lots of places for work. I ask if people are hiring when I go grocery shopping, lots of places. But usually the answer is ‘not hiring’, or ‘we’re always taking applications’ (ie, not hiring). Out of the literally hundreds of applications and resume’s I’ve sent, I have gotten two interviews. One I had to pass up because I got a nail in my tire after my dayjob parking lot was under construction… and by the time I got out of work to go, the tire was flat. Don’t you think that if there WAS a better job, I’d be going for it?! Who the hell goes “Yeah, that job I’m totally qualified for pays $15/hr + benefits, but I’d rather work this under the table job where I had to butterfly my hand shut because the boss doesn’t believe in sharpening his knives so I have to saw through dozens of lemons for drinks for a whopping $30 for a 12hr shift…” Seriously, who does that.

It is never because I don’t work hard enough. It’s because entry-level work that a kindergartener could do is paying minimum wage and demands 4-year + degrees in a related field, plus years of experience, and often on top of that also wants experience in specialty software. Waitressing positions are virutally dried up, and the work is low-paying and backbreaking. I started tearing ligaments in both of my wrists (they twist sideways now) because I worked so many long shifts like this back-to-back, that even when my nerves were on fire I had to work, I keep going. I need the money. Don’t ever say I don’t work hard enough. Don’t ever say Maria didn’t work hard enough. She died from work.

There was no reason to have a gas can in the car because if she wasn’t working so fucking hard, she would have had time to go to a gas station. If she wasn’t working so hard, she would have been sleeping at home, not in her car. If she hadn’t been working so hard, she would not have FOUR FUCKING JOBS. She worked plenty hard. The problem is that no one values “low” positions… but damn do they sure love being catered to. They want all the menial labor in the world. They just don’t want to pay for it.

"This sounds like someone who tried desperately to work and make ends meet, and met with a tragic accident," Elizabeth police Lt. Daniel Saulnier told the Star-Ledger.

NO. This is someone who tried desperately to work and make ends meet… because no one fucking valued her enough to pay her a living wage to begin with. This is the violence of poverty. That is not an accident. Someone makes a decision to pay their employees so damn little that they have to sleep in their car because they work so damn much that they never have time to go home, nor do many of us HAVE a home to go to because we can’t fucking afford it because rent is astronomical and poverty wages don’t pay enough to even afford a studio in a bad part of town by yourself. THAT is a conscious decision on the part of employers. To know that and not demand that workers be paid more (CUSTOMER demand; no one gives a shit about workers) is a conscious decision on the part of consumers. To explain this all away as a “tragic accident” is to minimize that responsibility and to ensure further violence and lack of worker rights. Maria did not have to die.

humansofnewyork:

"A few years ago, I got a call on my cell phone from a twelve year old child from my village. He was calling me from a bus stop. He’d taken a bus into the city alone, and he was calling me to ask if I could help him find a way to go to school. Both of his parents had died of AIDS, and he had no money for tuition. I told him to stay where he was, and left work immediately to pick him up. At first I was very mad at him. He should not have travelled alone. But then I looked at him and I saw myself. I’d also been desperate to go to school after my father was killed, but we had no money. So even though I was suffering myself, I told him I would try to help him. My salary was not enough, so I tried many things to get the money. After work, I went to the landfill to hunt for recyclables. But after I paid to have them cleaned, there was no money left. Now I’m trying to make bricks. I have a small operation in the village to make bricks, and I sell them in the city. It doesn’t make much money, but it’s enough to pay tuition for the boy and three of his siblings.” 

(Kampala, Uganda)

This is what I try to tell people. They always tell me, I can’t save the world, so why bother?

Well, why are you eating that apple? It’ll only be a core. ::sarcasm:: I don’t have to save the world. I just want to save that one world. It’s enough. You don’t need millions of dollars to do it. You just need to try your best to do more, to be more, and to resolve to keep doing it.

There will be some days harder than others. He will want to give up. But I hope he won’t. The ideas of those worlds are dependent on him.

I need to get to work before tomorrow…

But today at work was just so fucking bad that even hours after I came home my brain is just… fried. I can’t focus on a god damned thing. “Relaxing” isn’t helping because I have orders to get out tomorrow and I felt great this morning but nooooooo I agreed to do a half-day at work today and customers are just fucking AWFUL

No, I won’t fucking let you eat here AGAIN today because every fucking time you are here you eat $40 worth of food and then say “oh, I only have $5 today! Whoopsie! Can you just let me pay you later?” and then my idiot boss says “Sure!” and then bitches at me later because the bills are due and we’re short money and shit because he lets your ass do this every fucking week. Well guess what bitch this ain’t AMSCOT, and he ain’t here today so guess who isn’t pulling that trifling shit with me.


And look bitch, the reason you have slow-ass service at your table is because you fucking IGNORED me when I asked what you wanted to drink… right when I seated you. Because you were on your god damned cell phone. I have other tables. If I come back three times but you don’t know what you want because you are on your god damned phone, fucking go somewhere else because someone who PAYS ME can be sitting there.

Cunt, if you come in here and bitch because you don’t like the decor and bitch because you don’t like the smell and then *deign* to eat there and then bitch because of the price, fucking LEAVE. Don’t need yo dolla ho. Don’t order a bunch of shit, ask me if that’s “enough”, and then order more after I done told yo ass you coulda fed like five people on the shit you already GOT, and then invent bugs in it (it’s a damn sesame seed bitch sesame seeds come in black too) because you don’t want to pay for it, demand it be remade while sniping and bitching at us the whole damn time you’re there, and halfway through the roll being remade say you don’t want it remade you want to not pay for it. And repeat this with half of the rest of your damn order. And then want all kinds of drinks and shit to go. And then tip us ONE. DAMN. DOLLAR.


And you assholes. You yuppie hipster fucking sons of dickless goats who come in every fucking week got a million new questions about the SAME MENU that we had LAST week, taking up as much of my time as possible so that I get in trouble with management no matter what (either because I didn’t answer all of your questions, or because I left a table sitting too long because I was answering your litany of questions), before ordering shit we don’t even have on the menu “Yes I’d like the pork fried rice but don’t fry the rice, I just want plain white rice, and don’t use the normal sauce I want this other sauce but on the side. Oh, and also no vegetables, and don’t stir-fry the egg either I just want a whole egg and also …….” FOR EVERY GOD DAMN ITEM and then want your table’s check split all sorts of ways (not by item OR split evenly, some items go on some checks but some items should be split evenly which our computer doesn’t even fucking DO so I have to literally sit there with a calculator in a busy fucking restaurant to figure out your checks manually for each person at your table, then figure out how to get the computer to accept that for inventory purposes, and then run your cards, which loses me EVEN MORE MONEY BECAUSE FUCKING HELLO I HAVE MORE TABLES THAN YOURS ASSHOLE) and then tip 10% or less anyways no matter fucking what. And ON TOP OF ALL THAT you have the nerve to ask for all sorts of discounts and shit because you sat there so long talking afterwards you want half price on all your drinks and shit that you went from lunch straight on into Happy Hour, but you bought all your shit before 3, and it’s now 4:30. And you’re pissed because “well, it’s 4:30 NOW! What’s the difference if we ordered them then or not?” ……. You understand that a restaurant fucking sells FOOD, right? As in, our living and business depends on making money on that food. Dipshit. That’s the fucking difference.

And I swear to god bitch you were sitting RIGHT NEXT TO THEM so I KNOW you could hear them and the ten thousand things they wanted to know about individual ingredients when you ALSO know that I am LITERALLY THE ONLY WAITRESS ON STAFF AND THE MANAGER IS AWAY so do you think you could cut me some fucking slack or maybe speak the fuck up so that I have a way out from having to deal with these people for just a god damn minute and I don’t know, maybe NOT completely stiff me on the tip because it took a minute and a half to extricate myself to get a refill on your 2/3-empty cup?!

And YOU, the massive fucking asshole who comes in and orders $150 worth of food, running me around for literally over a dozen refills (can we PLEASE just buy an extra pitcher for this guy so my kitchen isn’t short one while he’s here?) and piles of extra sauces and all sorts of other shit and then when I SOMEHOW get all this shit out on time and just right, acts like a real Generous Guy by tipping me, no joke, $2.78. Two dollars and seventy eight fucking cents.

I MAKE A DOLLAR FIFTY AN HOUR. WOOOOOOOO $2.78?! HOLY SHIT CALL MY HUSBAND WE’RE RETIRING IN GERMANY WHERE I COULD GET HEALTHCARE TO FIND OUT WHY MY HEART IS FAILING. OH WAIT IT’S PROBABLY BECAUSE I’M UNDER CONSTANT FUCKING STRESS AND AM PROBABLY SOMEWHAT MALNOURISHED AND HAVE PROBLEMS FROM WORKING 12+ HOURS A GOD DAMN DAY FIVE TO SEVEN DAYS A FUCKING WEEK FOR $1.50 AN HOUR PLUS TIPS.

FUCK.

And that’s just the customers. Wait til you get a load of the boss. He’s the real-life PHB from Dilbert. Making life absolutely suck because he has no idea what the fuck is going on, usually screwing us over in the process.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

dynastylnoire:

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST

ras-al-ghul-is-dead:

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I made some things! And some stuff! I finally got a day off of work to get photos and post new things, but wouldn&#8217;t you know it, rain&#8230; all day. But I tried to get photos anyways, and now you get to see the awesome stuff I have hoarded in boxes and drawers like a dragon who collects jewellery and silk. And some of it can be yours! Lots of one of a kind handmade things to see!

did she get a haircut

does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year

isn’t that what happened???

they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time

Wow.

Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character. 

Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.

Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit

Bullshit. That little black girl is credited, in the cast list and IMDb, as Lavender Brown.

That is who Lavender was until she became more relevant, and they made her white

It is racist, stop shoving your fingers in your ears and pretending this isn’t what happened.

Naw, Harry’s eyes can be blue.

Lily’s eyes can be brown. 

Fred and George don’t really need the money to start their business. 

It’s not really important who gives Harry the gillyweed. 

Let’s make Hogwarts the only coed school in the TWT. 

Dudley Dursley doesn’t need a redemption.

It’s not really a big deal if we let Peter Pettigrew live, is it? 

Let’s have Snape be creepy with Lily’s dead body. 

DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIRE?!!!!!!!!

Let’s give Ron’s best lines to Hermione instead. 

Fuck Dumbledore’s entire back-story. 

THIS MINOR CHARACTER CAN’T BE BLACK, THOUGH. THAT WOULD JUST BE SPITTING IN THE FACE OF BOOK CANON.

The closest Rowling come to describing Lavender Brown’s race is…by not describing it. We’re supposed to assume that she’s white because we’re supposed to assume they would describe Lavender’s race if she was anything but white.

White people will move mountains to justify their totally unjustifiable inclusion in everything. Arrogant pieces of shit.

"The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books"

that never happened.

You know what? Yeah, that IS some racist shit. Because if any of you twatwaffles had actually read the books AND seen the movies, you’d know that they changed PILES of shit in the movies. LOADS of it. THEY CHANGED RON’S ENTIRE CHARACTER ARC FFS. They made Snape 20-25 years older than his character because they got Alan Rickman to play him! Tell me how a guy 20 years older than Harry’s dad was in the same year as him in school. Yeah fuckwits suck on that.

They could have just as easily kept the original actress for Lavender Brown. It wouldn’t have changed the substance of the character at all. Not one bit. Instead, they replaced her with a white girl. Didn’t even change the character’s name or pretend it was someone different. Think about that.
