Recently, Taiwan became the first Asian nation to pass gay marriage legislation. This is exciting, but sad for a lot of reasons, because it spotlights the taboo of LGBTQ in our communities. To say Asians are against LGBTQ is inaccurate; queerness in our communities is more like a fiction, a phase, a small deal that’s not real important like a pharmacy degree. Our apathy is worse than homophobia, it buries the very existence of gays...

Someone recently asked on Twitter, “I would like to ask everyone to please respond with how old you were when you first realized racism existed in this world [and] I would like white people to come back in a few hours and read the differences in the experiences.” I was about five or six when I learned about racism. It was my first day in kindergarten and up until that point, as an only child,...

It’s so fashionable to blame white people now. Blaming white people is no longer “edgy”. It’s gotten to the point where defending them is kind of the new PoC radicalism. But I want to know something: why is it nearly universal that every white person I met or read in the news feel like they need to save something? This is why people of color are hesitant on sharing things; because PoC tend to view...

Andrew Yang wants to be your president and give you a free $1000 every month. Why every American hasn’t leapt up and spread his name around by now is partly because Yang has been running his campaign like a model minority. AKA, speak softly, hope to get noticed. I like Yang, and a lot of it started out solely because he is Asian, but after really hearing him out, I mostly like him now because...

Sometime last year, I stared at a wall for thirty minutes. I was really sad and wanted to die, except I didn’t really want to, just that it felt like I was falling from a cliff and I was holding on for dear life against an inevitable fall. I saw a therapist and she told me I had depression. I told her she was wrong. I don’t get depression. I’m a happy person, a strong...

As someone who likes consistency and realness, I hate holidays. This idea that we’re supposed to stop and dedicate certain days to remind ourselves of common ideas is ridiculous. We should be kind to our moms year-round, every now and then treat our spouses to something nice and make resolutions in June. There’s even a holiday to remind us we should be thankful when, really, the other 363 days, we should be thankful too. Holidays...

Imagine one day that you show up to work and you expect everything to be normal. Why wouldn’t you? You work hard, you’re honest, you give nobody a reason to club you to death with a hammer. The problem is, someone out there doesn’t like you. They don’t like you for the color of your skin. They don’t like you because they perceive you a threat to your own community. Why? Because the media painted...

I have an average penis. It’s not big, it’s not small. It’s like a Honda Civic: common, very functional with good mileage. Of all the interesting parts of my body, my penis should not be anything of interest to anyone I don’t fuck, because well, it’s what you’ll find in most men. But throughout my life, as an Asian man, I’ve been defined by it. I’m better at fucking than I am at math, but...

Well, it’s about damn time we got ourselves an Asian MCU movie. Thank you, Black Panther. Thank you, Crazy Rich Asians. Here’s your love child. Marvel announced today that they’re going to fast-track a movie about Asian character Shang-Chi, someone 99% of us have never heard of, but whose Wikipedia page have probably gotten more views today than it’s ever had prior to the news. Its plans are to do something similar to Black Panther,...

I’m going to contribute another article as to why Dolce & Gabbana’s “The Great Show” was evil, but I don’t want to repeat the obvious reasons. By now, we all know the big three: 1.) It shows Chinese people as ill-cultured buffoons 2.) There’s a not-so-subtle tiny dick joke and 3.) The Chinese narrator seems to intentionally mispronounce the label in a mocking accent. Add Gabbana’s unhinged racist Instagram rants and even the least-woke Western-society...
