For you white girls who say you love Koreans, ya’ll sure don’t treat the mods over at ThisisNotKorean very nicely. Oh wait. Because you only love the cute little ‘submissive’ Koreans, the ones who aren’t there when you say disgusting racist fetishizing shit-not the angry ones who are sick an tired of being homogenized, sexualized, and objectified as sexual objects for a bunch of white girls in need of a new trend to make them look worldly and cultured.

How can selfishness and love coexist? Ask the city we live in. Karachi at its worst is a Karachi unconcerned with people who exist outside the storyteller’s circle, a Karachi oblivious to people and places who aren’t familiar enough for nicknames. What I’ve sometimes mistaken for intimacy is really just exclusion. But Karachi is always dual. Houses are alleys, car thieves are people to help you when your car won’t start; pollution simultaneously chokes you and makes you gasp at the beauty of unnatural sunsets; a violent fractured place dismissive of everyone outside its boundaries is vibrant, embracing, accepting of outsiders; and yes, selfishness is a consequence of love.

When people of colour are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions.

The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them.

"Every boy I like makes me feel guilty because I can no longer tell the difference between my attraction and my oppression." 

A spoken word piece by Alok Vaid-Menon on internalized racism and dating. 

"To all the white boys I’ve ever had a crush on- I’m tryna, but I keep failing for you."

"you colonized our hearts because our land wasn’t enough"
fuck.

"Every boy I like makes me feel guilty because I can no longer tell the difference between my attraction and my oppression." 

"Every boy I like makes me feel guilty because I can no longer tell the difference between my attraction and my oppression." 

"Every boy I like makes me feel guilty because I can no longer tell the difference between my attraction and my oppression."
