white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
I’d just like to point out Gwen Stefani for a minute though. She loves harijuku culture, and has been attempting to do it justice since the early 2000’s. Otherwise, she probably wouldn’t mention it in her songs fondly every two seconds. I’m not saying she’s not being racist, I’m just saying that her heart is in the right place
i’m sure all of them think they’re “appreciating” japanese culture, but intention means very little when it comes to appropriating someone else’s culture or using humans as accessories. racism is racism, and its terrible in every form.
Is the last image of Avril Lavigne? Just wondering about the context of that photo because she is super popular in China right now and I’m just thinking maybe they were trying to make her more appealing to the Asian market.

We are at Sakura-Con in Seattle this weekend and I’m going to start posting some of the cosplays walking by our table. This pair was dead on with their demeanor. Hannibal was terrifying.
If you like Hannibal, we have 4 brand new button designs at our table, #205!
GUYS I WAS SPOT ON AND CREEPY YES
Ahh I look ill, perfect
New Home Is Where The Internet Is! Tumblr’s 10-page limit is keeping me from posting the whole thing, so head on over to the webcomic to read the rest (plus a blog post with Paris photos and doodles).
I’m going to Strasbourg tomorrow!!! I’m so excited. We might take a day trip into Germany and the Black Forest 8-D AHHHHHH. Back soon, love and hugs~
-Your friend Tally
Tally is not only an AMAZING comic artist but she’s living the dream! I hope my girls grow up and don’t let the constant yet abstract notion of fear dictate how they live in this world. Way to go Tally!! :D
I love this so much! As someone who’s only really started to travel in the last year, I totally get that initial terror. I’ve been pretty fortunate, and made so many friends all over the world. I went to Boston on a whim this weekend and got to spend an evening with comic people I met mostly through twitter - and everyone was wonderful. Yes, I got terrible food poisoning on the way home, but I also got to have barbecue and Manhattans with people who used to be strangers. Travel! It’s good for you.
Wtf is Tim Hortons though
tim hortons is my life, and without it i would be nothing. it is what fuels me, what makes me want to see the light of tomorrow. wikipedia defines it is “a Canadian multinational fast casual restaurant” but it is so much more. tim hortons is indescribable as it is not solely canada’s most beloved chain coffee and bake shop, but a full experience. even the scent of fresh coffee brewing, hot donuts right out of the oven, and the faint lingering of burned bagels is enough to set my head spinning. you can’t simply just ask a canadian to define tim hortons, because tim hortons defines a canadian
