From my trip to Myeongdong, South Korea!
white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
i think you just described yourself…..the irony
Actually she did not . Dressing in Japanese fashion is different than treating Japanese people as props . Go learn irony
enjoying japanese fashion = / = appropriating and sexualizing kimonos, saying I’d like to flay japanese people and wear their skin as a fashion accesory, treating japanese girls like submissive cloned props who I also shut up and do not allow to speak while I’m in the front, reducing the culture of those very girls to cupcakes and hello kitty as if they couldn’t possibly represent their own culture good enough themselves.
also I think you confuse me with somebody else because I’ve never even been to America so how in the name of sweet baby jesus can I be a white woman of hollywood? ? ?
tldr: wearing a pink wig and enjoying japanese pop fashion culture is not the same as parading around in costumized, sexualized kimonos with a bunch of asian girls following me because they’d make cute accessories
even on a very basic level that was a stupid thing to say. what’s she even doing that’s recognisably japanese in that photo anyway? anyone who didn’t know she’s influenced by jfashion isn’t going to think “OH LOOK SHES WEARING A PINK WIG, JAPANESE PEOPLE SOMETIMES WEAR PINK WIGS, BURN HER”. If you didn’t know a thing about jfashion you’d think “dayum, cute-as girl sure likes pink”, not “oh look, cultural appropriation”
and there’s a LOT more people than just “the japanese” who would wear a necklace like that. if anything, the offensive thing here is that assumption that mariell wearing a necklace that says kitten = “being japanese”, because all japanese girls are submissive cute pink kitten amarite?!
like seriously did u even think before you did that or
