I know the irony of *me* writing an article about EA and SA voices drowning out other Asian voices is very apparent, so I may just help someone else pitch it :) Identify yourself to me on Tw if you want—we can be friends :)

Right? Minoritized people can assume the mantle of solidarity but without real commitment to addressing the *differences* in oppression & rectifying them intra-community, it’s fake. Solidarity doesn’t happen naturally. It has to be more mindful than that.

<3 Thank you for your comment. While I alluded to this issue of "Asian America" being flattened into a monoculture—I could have pointed directly to East & South Asian voices shouting over others. I'm writing a separate article on that, but it could have been in this one too.

“fuck piece” lmao. Mara literally changed her first name to up her prestige/show off her privilege. We get it, you’re sports royalty. Dunham’s parents were the definition of art parents.

I’m betting it will be for Emma Watson or Sofia Coppola. The others surely have fallen out of favor?
