artemis from young justice > Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss
ALSO OMG SHE’S ASIAN YESSS
I was watching the show, and Robin mentions Artemis’s mom, Huntress, by name, and the fact that I heard cartoon Robin say “Nguyen” out loud made me feel like I could imagine myself in the same universe as Batman and Wonder Woman for the first time in my life, and I almost cried.
This was my favorite part of Young Justice, to be honest
I am an Asian-American woman in my 20s and I have struggled so hard in dealing with my mixed racial identity.
I am Chinese-Filipino and Japanese. My Chinese parent grew up in Manila and identifies as Filipino, despite being ethnically (Han) Chinese. Non-Asians, especially those into anime, always seem so ‘interested’ in me when they hear my Japanese last name. However when I mention that I am also Chinese, much less Chinese-Filipino, they act as if I’m somehow tainted. I’ve been called everything from a mutt to chop suey, some have even accused me of being a ‘fake’. I’m tired of laughing it off and pretending that it doesn’t hurt. I’m tired of people judging me because I am, apparently, not the “right kind” of Asian.
If white American feminist theory need not deal with the differences between us, and the resulting difference in our oppressions, then how do you deal with the fact that the women who clean your houses and tend your children while you attend conferences on feminist theory are, for the most part, poor women and women of Color?
What is the theory behind racist feminism?
Nicola Griffith, talking about writing Ammonite (via limousine-eyelash)
Twenty years ago, as she pointed out on Twitter, and still something we need to hear.
Just one of many reasons why Nicola is one of my favorite writers in the world. Read her books; they are amazing.

if i ever get tattoos one will have to be my family name , 文, in some kind of calligraphic script (preferably written by someone in the family but not necessary) and plum blossoms for my mother’s maiden name, 梅. i would want my family name on my left rib cage (ouch i know), underneath my heart. not sure where i would want the plum blossoms, but i definitely want them done in chinese watercolors, without black outlines.
Omfg this is breathtaking
Someday I want a Xiyouji tattoo done in Chinese watercolor style
An Indian woman, a Japanese woman, and a Syrian woman, all training to be doctors at Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia, 1880s. (Image courtesy Legacy Center, Drexel University College of Medicine Archives, Philadelphia, PA. Image #p0103) (x)
The Indian woman, Dr. Anandi Gopal Joshi, was the first Indian woman to earn a degree in Western medicine, and also believed to be the first Hindu woman to set foot on American soil.
The Japanese woman, Dr. Kei Okami, was the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western Medicine.
The Syrian woman is Dr. Sabat Islambooly. Her name is spelled incorrectly on that photograph.
For those interested, here’s more information on other women of color who attended and graduated from Women’s Medical College of Philadelphia in the past, with a focus on the Japanese-American women they accepted during the US WW2 internment of Japanese-Americans.
