I guess tomorrow I really need to finish reading Superior Spider-Man #1 so I can start writing on that post about the Ock/MJ plotline for FYSW.

Haha, for a character-themed tumblog writer I am laughably bad at the whole “timeliness” thing.

This is probably a little irrational of me but

dorkery:

skalja:

DEAR WELL-MEANING WESTERNERS,

NOT EVERY PERSON CELEBRATING THE (OR A) NEW YEAR TOMORROW IS CHINESE OR OF CHINESE DESCENT.

THANK YOU,
SKALJA

And no, I am not in the mood to hear “it’s just simpler that way” or “but they’re all based on the Chinese calendar so the name just reflects the origins” or whatever the hell.

I AM NOT CHINESE

I HAVE NO CHINESE RELATIVES

I CELEBRATE CHINESE NEW YEAR

ALL YEAR EVERY YEAR

FUCK YEAH CNY

That is all.

jfc I want to be back home in Malaysia. No one does CNY like Malaysia does. :(

Um … good for you? I mean, I’m glad you enjoy the holiday and all. But that has pretty much nothing to do with my frustration with Western erasure of Asian national/ethnic/cultural differences, or the uncomfortable politics of one culture with a history of imperialism privileging the terminology of another culture with a history of imperialism over those of the cultures who ended up on the wrong side of the imperialists.
