"But Chinese ppl just have black hair what are you talking about!"
These are all pictures of me and my ridiculously cool hair. No coloration filters were used. No hair dye is present in any of these pictures. These are simply shots of what happens when I step into direct sunlight, artificial lighting, shadows, and against direct sunlight.
In fact, the top picture and the bottom picture were actually taken simply by facing a window in opposite directions.
This is a commentary on the physical perception of Asian women, particularly Chinese women. We are supposed to be pale skinned creatures with petite bodies and hair as black as night.
I am 100% chinese and sometimes I look blonde. sometimes I even look auburn. and very rarely does my hair look 100% black as night like it does in the last shot.
This does not mean that I must be part white. This does not mean that you can ooooh and ahhhh at my hair and touch it without my permission, stroke me like a pet dog (because oh my god white people, why do you think this is OK to do? I am shorter than you and my hair is awesome but please STOP TOUCHING IT and PS all your white girl hair advice sucks ass).
All your stereotypes about “what a Chinese person should look like” stem from exotified stereotypical nonsense that needs to be shut the fuck down.
I do not dye it. I am not ‘trying to be white. I can assure you, both my parents are 100% Chinese and my mother’s hair is even lighter than my own. I’m pale as fuck right now because it’s fucking winter and freezing outside, but come summertime, my skin will resemble a toasted croissant.
And guess what?
I am Chinese.
Therefore, I LOOK Chinese.
that is all it takes.
my looks and my genetic background are not your fucking imperialist guessing game gameshow.
or you could deal with the fact that you don’t have slanted eyes like most chinese people do…
