A Youtube video of Blogilates founder, Cassey Ho, has gone positively viral, attracting many comments and inspiring people all over the internet. On the surface, I love this video. It’s a compelling commentary on the abuse of Photoshop and the unrealistic expectations we face as women. However, when we consider…
White people have borrowed cultural accessories over the years, and turned them into edgy, exotic ornaments. I admit that most of these trends are disgusting examples of cultural appropriation. For example, Selena Gomez dressing up as an Indian in Come and Get It, and portraying Indians as hypersexualized…
There is no more sexism in this world. Boys wear crop tops now. Let us objectify them.
My parents have always advocated the traditional lifestyle for me: Go to university, get a job, marry a decent Chinese guy, and pop a few kids. In response, I always say that I don't intend to marry. This is not because I'm adverse to the thought of marriage. In fact, I would like to have someone to sit on the porch…
It was a sunny morning, and A Dog was going on his usual walk. Bumblecat was licking herself in her backyard, when she noticed her old nemesis walking past her.
There is a very famous quote from Tina Fey that I used to love. But upon critical reflection, I realised that I don't agree with it very much:
While browsing around on the internet one day. I found this website that offers sex education for teenage girls. VERY BAD SEX EDUCATION THAT ENCOURAGES RAPE AND DATE RAPE DRUGS.
All hail the era of the total elimination of Drama Llamas! On behalf of The Queen I release the Batllama, which will fight drama llamas and keep Groupthink safe.

YO WHITE LADY. SHUT THE FUCK UP.
No, I respectfully disagree. My makeup is actually pretty good. You see, when I woke up this morning, I decided I wanted to look like
So today I decided it would be nice to rock triple denim, so I wore a denim jacket, a denim top and shorts. It was rainy so I threw some stockings underneath. They look kind of like this:
Have you ever felt oppressed because you never had the right to scream about how much you hate Aboriginals, Asians and other people of colour? Just a reminder, Tony Abbott is the Prime Minister of Australia who is "threatened" by gay people (even though her sister is a lesbian), hates boat people so much that he…
TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE
I am a chink. I have small eyes and a flat forehead and a natural talent for Maths. I love rice and I eat it every day. My culture boasts a wonderful array of food. Do you love Chinese food? Let me introduce you to my local cuisine! This chicken rice is soft and tender like it should be. Here, try this ginger paste.…
I've been seeing the same idea getting recycled over and over again on Facebook, Twitter and Korean dramas and THIS HAS TO STOP. I cannot understand this. I cannot understand this need that every girl supposedly has that can only be fulfilled by a dress and a necklace and shoes with the order:
In order to function as a woman in the world, you have to walk around pretending you're not that vulnerable. As individuals we believe that we're stronger. I remember, at 24-years-old, play-fighting with my boyfriend in his bed. "Bet you can't pin me" I teased. I did spin-class. I did yoga. I believed it. So we…
