you are beyond gone, my friend.
that’s not even a compliment!!!!! that’s some bullshit you’re throwing at me, or anyone else for that matter. if you think that’s a compliment, telling me i’m pretty “for a south asian” i’d rather your lame bitch ass keep it to yourself. if someone’s attractive, then they’re just that: attractive. not attractive for a…..
you forreal are just so ignorant and messed up, smfh i pity you. i don’t understand how ppl like you still exist on this earth w/ this fucked up mindset thinking you can go around and tell ppl that they’re pretty for a…… person. i don’t have to be WHITE or have WHITE mixed in me to be considered beautiful, nor does anyone else. fuck your norms and standards, and get your bitch ass off my blog, and don’t you dare come back w/ this bullshit.
As awesome as this post is, it would’ve been even cooler to show some of your darker skinned beauties.

(Women in) the South Asian diaspora: resources
Hey guys! So, in February I completed my dissertation on South Asian women in diaspora, focused on North America and England and the self-representation of this experience in literature. Getting access to certain material was a huge upside and this post has been sitting in my drafts for months. I intended for it to include a bunch of links, fictional recommendations, movie recommendations, all relevant to the topic, but I figured it’s worth posting the fraction I kind of neglected for a while. I’ll make another (complete) post in the near future with a lot added, all far more organised than this but for now, here are a few links that might be of interest. Not all of them are in full; a lot are just google book previews, but I wanted there to be at least some glimpse into the material, and to keep it as accessible as possible because a lot of the sources I used were pretty cut off and nauseatingly expensive.
It’s also worth noting that there’s a pretty huge prevalence to frame discourse on South Asians around India, and there are a lot of issues and topics (religions, ethnicities, implications of certain identities, actually) that get pushed to the sidelines - if discussed with enough nuance at all - so I apologise for this not being a more comprehensive list. I do hope there’s something somebody can glean from this little fraction of recommendations though, and I’m not an expert by far but my ask box is always open for anyone who wants to talk.
Shout out to all of the brown girls whose first time shaving wasn’t a joyful step into womanhood, but an occasion marked by the shame and grief of coming home from school and begging your mom to let you do it because the kids at school wouldn’t stop pointing and laughing
