I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

I’m not a militant pescatarian

I won’t ever try to press my views on other people, since my own are bathed in hypocrisy, however last night two women who I respect both said ‘I love animals but they’re just so tasty!’ and I had to hold my breath to stop myself from yelling
‘NO YOU DONT LOVE ANIMALS THEN- you find them cute, amusing, endearing, but you don’t fucking love them because what sick fuck eats alive things they love??!!!’

I don’t know what pissed me off more, misuse of the word ‘love’ or the blatant lie they tell themselves that it’s ok to eat the carcass of an unhappy animal because it’s ‘tasty’.

I’m currently sitting with my legs on my chair in a painful manner because there is an effing massive bug somewhere in my room and it wants to get me, I’m on tumblr drooling over waistcoats and pretending to play guitar.

At what point do I grow up and do grown up things? I feel like I’ve been lied to. Is there such thing as a grown up? Are your twenties your new teens? When does it get a bit easier? Does it ever? Where is this fucking bug?

Reasons why I can’t be vegetarian or vegan.

  1. Bacon.

Reasons why I can’t be a meat eater.
1. Pigs.

Putting your tastebuds over the life of a living being is really shitty and I am so sick of seeing “bacon” as an excuse to continue to fund animal cruelty. 

Yes THANK YOU

Reasons why I’m ok with not eating real bacon;
1. Bacon flavoured peanuts mmmm

That’s a thing?!?!

And they’re vegetarian mmmmm

Don’t bother labelling me, you’ll eat your words.

I got referred to as a lolita by a lolita and I didn’t bother replying to said woman that I’m not and never have referred to myself as lolita or wished to be one. I’m a Japanese and Victorian fashion enthusiast for sure, but I’m definitely not trying to satisfy some deep internal need to fit in by labelling myself. Not that all lolita’s are, but this person most definitely is.

Which, to be honest, kinda ruins it for the genuine people who just want to be accepting and accepted.

Today I received sexual harrassment in the form of some guy in a car doing rude gestures at me. I’d call this harrassment as it was a; unwanted, and b; made me feel uncomfortable and degraded. So I posted on facebook that I was sick of men thinking its ok to do this,

and I got called sexist.

I’ll leave you to think about that.
