Asians and dyed hair


  • Empress of War

    I was having this little convo with a couple of people on Twitter and thought it’ll be interesting to hear your thoughts on the matter.

    I tweeted that I didn’t like G-Dragon with his weirdly colored orange hair and wished that he would go back to black because imo, black hair looks the best on guys.

    I mean, if I were to choose between this: tumblr_nydoknfSRP1qb2yato1_250.png

    and this:

    G-Dragon_1441825226_gd.jpg

    It’s obviously no contest. Black hair looks the most masculine/sexiest imo.

    A couple of guys (both Asian guys) tweeted me back and said they felt the same way about Asian girls dying their hair. They prefer the girls to keep their hair black.

    So we all know it’s a very common trend to see Asians, especially the girls, dying their hair. But I’m curious as to what you guys think about it? Do you prefer the opposite gender to keep their hair black, do you prefer it dyed or you don’t care either way?

    So I don’t know how to use the quote button properly.

    Ya, this is a bit weird. The quote system only works at the first layer (a single “less than sign”). By the second layer (two “less than sign”), it acts as a spoiler hiding device.

    Yeah the arrows confused me lol

    The lynchings are f-king inhumane. The Chinese also got lynched in LA in the past. Basically, a mob of white men (sources vary on how much but it was large) massacred Chinese in LA, men, women, children.

    You may be referring to this?

    The Chinese massacre of 1871 was a racially motivated riot which occurred on October 24, 1871 in Los Angeles, California, when a mob of around 500 white men entered Chinatown to attack, rob, and murder Chinese residents of the city.[1][2] The massacre took place on Calle de los Negros (Street of the Negroes), also referred to as “Nigger Alley”, which later became part of Los Angeles Street. An estimated 17 to 20 Chinese immigrants were systematically tortured and then hanged by the mob, making the event the largest mass lynching in American history.[1][2][3]

    @natalie_ng So I don’t know how to use the quote button properly. I’ll work on that. But to answer your question, I felt like they had contempt for playing the Asian characters. The contempt directed at me was when she was talking down to me in the PM exchange and my avatar was a Japanese guy. The only interaction I’ve had with Americans is online but whenever I make it known I’m Asian or someone else makes it known they’re Asian there’s this weird change in the way they speak. Very weird. Reading stuff on the forums, well, I understand it better now.

    The lynchings are f-king inhumane. The Chinese also got lynched in LA in the past. Basically, a mob of white men (sources vary on how much but it was large) massacred Chinese in LA, men, women, children. They dragged them from their homes and set their places on fire to smoke them out and hung them. You can read up on this or I don’t know, maybe it’s on the site already. But no one was spared. One guy was a doctor who was apparently well respected in the community and they dragged him out and cut off his finger and took the ring on his finger. For the lynchings for black people, the act itself is cruel but to take pleasure in it is just a whole new level of evil. I actually agree with you there about them needing to feel superior. It’s kind of brainwashing. I read about the Irish. I think the English basically starved them somehow and that led to potatoes being a staple for the Irish because they couldn’t really grow anything or they had no food resources. I read up they did look down on the Italians and it was one of the reasons why the Italian mafia was formed. This is why I don’t trust white people entirely and especially, Americans. Funny thing is, I never felt this way when I was younger but maybe it’s because I only saw America as it was portrayed in the media which was always positive.

    This is good that you’ve been able to reach those places. China may possibly be one of the last East Asian countries that doesn’t have an immediate hard-on for anything western just because it is western which is why those in power wants so badly to sabotage/undermine/demonize whatever China is doing or tries to do while ignoring that the west isn’t perfect as well. I mean, have they seen the type of crap that happens in western countries? In the news, someone set a bus driver on fire and just stood there and smiled while everyone in the bus was trying to get out of a bus that was on fire. A taxi driver (who was brown) was the one that broke the back door of the bus to allow everyone to escape. And yes, the guy who set the bus driver on fire was a “mentally ill” white guy. Terrorist would’ve been the more appropriate word.

    i can’t figure out how to send u any messages.

    Neither her nor the white person was interested in role playing the characters at all. I could feel their contempt through the computer screen.

    Do you mean that they had contempt for playing the Asian characters or was their contempt directed at you? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter whether it’s the former or the latter–their racism is still showing.

    I read up on lynchings that happened in America and the glee on white peoples’ faces is horrifying.

    Yeah, sometimes I suspect that their sadistic nature (plus their racism combined) has to do with some kind of mental illness or like what you said, that they were brought up to believe they were superior. I do think your mentioning of them thinking they’re always superior to others is very valid. That would explain why before there were a lot of non-white minorities, they discriminated/hated each other (they looked down on the Irish, the Jews and the Italians too I think, despite all of these groups having white faces like theirs). In other words, they always feel the need to be superior over someone else and if blacks and Asians didn’t exist, I guarantee they would exercise this superiority complex over each other like they once did with the Irish.

    Say, a guy from Germany or France. But I want to say that part of it isn’t entirely the white person’s fault there.

    Yep, a lot of it goes back to white-worshipping on the part of Asians.

    This can be changed over time. I just don’t know how.

    We’re looking to translate a lot of the stuff we write here and on other woke Asian sites to spread around Asian social networks that are commonly used in Asia. We’re hoping to at least educate them on why whites are not as great as they seem to be (by pointing out their tendency to be violent, child molesters, etc…and using a lot of sources and evidence to back it up of course). One of my friends have actually translated some stuff to Chinese and a number of Chinese in Taiwan and China were very appreciative of it, stating that they had no idea how racist/vile so many whites can be. So I think there is hope.

    Btw, completely unrelated but I wanted to ask if you’ll be interested in joining our slack? The slack is a chatroom where both AMs & AFs can discuss Asian-related topics or anything else really. We’re looking to recruit more woke AFs and you seem like a great candidate. Just shoot me a private message if you’re interested ^_^

    @WokenUp

    I was followed and harrassed by a white guy who thought I was a terrorist and threatened to take me back to the bank and then the police station when it was clear I wasn’t co-operating.

    That’s definitely racism at its finest. If anything, YOU should be the one to call the police on him for harassing and threatening a woman.

    It was the first time it happened to me. I was kinda too shocked to do anything. I probably should’ve but I just wanted to get away from the guy because he was a psycho. He blocked my way to get out of the bank initially for some reason and kept on staring at me when we were in the bank which made me nervous. The guy was crazy. He kept on demanding what I was doing in the bank and threatened to take me to the police station himself and that he’d escort me to the police station. I was like, wtf o_0. I just didn’t want him knowing who I was.

    As for the white woman that picked on me, yeah, she doesn’t know what race I am as we were communicating through the computer but the picture I had was of a Japanese guy so that is my suspicion too.

    I see–that would explain it then. Having an AM as your pic does make you a prime target for white bullying/harassment, although I somehow doubt her knowing you’re an AF would lead her to treating you better. I think she just dislikes Asians in general.

    Yeah the weird thing was, she role played with another white person who was playing an Asian female character but my god…it was just, you know how you can tell when people don’t give two shits? That’s what it was like. Neither her nor the white person was interested in role playing the characters at all. I could feel their contempt through the computer screen.

    Because with them, a lot of the time it leads to violence.

    This 100%. I frequently tell others who point out to me that there are racist blacks and hispanic folks too that it doesn’t matter blacks/hispanics are racist because A. they hold no power so their racism has little effect on us and B. racist POC are less likely to be violent than racist whites. Many may disagree with the latter statement but if you step back and take a look at history, you would see that while yes, slavery existed in all civilizations, no other race enslaved people of a different race only because they’re of different races. No other race has so much hatred in their heart that they enjoy lynching, whipping and raping people of a different race. No other race has no problems with completely wiping out the natives of a land in order to colonize it (so much evidence had shown that China had indeed come into contact with Native Americans yet the Chinese left them alone whereas the Europeans immediately sought to kill them). No other race gas chambers people based on religious disagreement. No other race enjoys hosing down people of a different race. No other race turns into Neo Nazis solely to gang up and physically beat minorities to death. And usually, it’s not just minorities they enjoy beating up, but homosexuals as well. So yes, you’re absolutely correct–they tend to be very violent.

    Normal people like the rest of us will simply walk away if we don’t want to associate with someone. We don’t chase after them to beat them or kill them. Even the most nationalistic Asians in Asia I have known don’t hunt down non-Asians to beat them. Yet when you start mentioning white nationalism, everyone starts to tremble and for a very good reason. They’re uncivilized barbarians.

    I agree with you there. Sometimes, the arguments come up that “hey, we’re not the only ones that had slaves!” And I think that’s true but like you said, no one other race has tried to exterminate another race of people solely based on their race. That lynching, whipping and raping thing. Yes, I agree too. I read up on lynchings that happened in America and the glee on white peoples’ faces is horrifying. The key thing that differentiates white people where is that the white settlers thought it was completely okay to do what they do because they were taught some bs that they were special and superior. That was the only way they could do it. I do think they have a conscience because they are human after all but it’s kind of warped and it’s the justifications they have. I’m talking about white Americans in this aspect because I only get this when I read up on stuff about America. I believe you about the Europeans and the Chinese. China doesn’t go around killing the natives so that they can move in and take over the land.

    white parents seem to think that telling them what they want to hear instead what they [i]need[/i] to hear is going to help them in life. Then they go overseas and they can’t cope with the differences. Some manage but the majority, I’ve seen, just end up breaking apart when they figure out that not everything is about them and they have to adapt or die.

    I believe Asians, as a whole, know we have to work much harder to get the same position/success in life as a white person who works half as hard. White parents can afford to raise their kids through rose-colored glasses because the entire society will cater to them. Personally, I find it very common to have a white manager who has zero expertise in what I do and doesn’t even have a degree yet is the boss of a group of people (mainly POC) who hold college degrees. How laughable is that? I even had a white boss once who was pretty much a high school failure yet I was working under him with a college degree (and so were my Asian, Latino and Arab coworkers). Society caters to white people. Their privilege is real. So white parents can afford to tell their kids, “Oh everything will be fine and dandy, the world will love you” because that’s pretty much accurate for them. That’s one of the reasons why I have zero sympathy for white people who become homeless, when they live in a society that prioritizes their success/employment so much but that’s another story for another time. My point is Asians know that we have to work our asses off and get at least a 4-year college degree to get to where a white person with a high school diploma can get to. Whether or not this is the case for just predominantly white countries or overseas as well, I can’t say for sure. I’m tempted to say the entire world worships white people, which would explain why you have dumbfuck, child-molesting white ESL teachers in Asia being hired all over the place, instead of fluent English-speaking Asian-American teachers, so I do wanna say that even in non-white countries, white people still get priority over the rest of us.

    This is what’s so f-ked up about this whole thing. They say that skills, abilities, etc. are important but in reality, white people can get by with minimum effort. They don’t even get reprimanded as harshly when they’re doing something wrong. If an Asian person did the same thing, then all hell breaks loose. I can only say this is in white countries because I haven’t experienced work in Asia. Half of me wants to because I think I won’t go bat$hit crazy at least. But still, with the amount of white ESL teachers in Asia, I don’t even know if I want to. White people do get priority over Western born Asians that can speak fluent English I think, based on stuff I’ve read. They specifically ask for a white person even if that white person does not speak English. Say, a guy from Germany or France. But I want to say that part of it isn’t entirely the white person’s fault there. Asians in Asia refuse to hire a fluent English-speaking Asian-American/Australian/etc. as opposed to a white person because of perception. White person=higher social class=higher prestige=higher social status=better for kids seems to be the common belief. It goes back to the fact that pale skin is associated with wealth. And also, I think it’s because Asians in Asia aren’t used to Asians speaking English as fluently as white people. So there’s that initial assumption already built in. This can be changed over time. I just don’t know how.

    I don’t know what they were trying to do honestly. It was night. The tram had people in it and they were just there being disgusting. The girl wasn’t really responding but she wasn’t doing anything to stop him so it was still PDA. She was just smiling. And yes, I’ve noticed that dramatic thing the older I got. I agree with you about the coffee thing and suing people for that. I thought that was just…idiotic. It’s not McDonald’s fault you spilled hot coffee on yourself. I’ve never had that experience before with someone chasing me for miles over something stupid like that. I was followed and harrassed by a white guy who thought I was a terrorist and threatened to take me back to the bank and then the police station when it was clear I wasn’t co-operating. It was most wtf thing that had happened to me. As for the white woman that picked on me, yeah, she doesn’t know what race I am as we were communicating through the computer but the picture I had was of a Japanese guy so that is my suspicion too. She didn’t do that to anyone else and I know they were all white. And yes, I agree with you there based on past experiences. I just wish they would stop. Because with them, a lot of the time it leads to violence. If it didn’t lead to violence, then I wouldn’t care but they cannot take it when a POC fights back when they bully them like that and that’s when they get dangerous. Not all but a lot. I think it’s the culture and society. I wonder if a white person grew up in an Asian country, would they still be the same? I’m talking pure Asian here. Not places like Singapore or Hong Kong. I’d like to do that with them but I just don’t give a shit. Maybe if I ever go to America and encounter this kind of thing I’ll do it. But with the current climate I’d be scared.

    This thing where they caricature non-white people…I think you’re right. I’ve noticed as I got older, how differently white parents treat their kids as opposed to Asian parents and I recognize this with my family too. White parents, most of them I think, seem to do that to their kids. Asian parents seem to know how to ground their kids and make them less of a princess/prince. And even if they do dote on them, they push them for education because they don’t want their kids to be out on the streets. They know the world isn’t all rainbows but white parents seem to think that telling them what they want to hear instead what they [i]need[/i] to hear is going to help them in life. Then they go overseas and they can’t cope with the differences. Some manage but the majority, I’ve seen, just end up breaking apart when they figure out that not everything is about them and they have to adapt or die. They refuse to adapt and they end up on the streets or getting arrested or making idiots out of themselves in both the local and international community. Yet they (and this is talking about white Americans) expect so much from Asians that come to America and act like they have a perpetual stick up their butts when an Asian person can’t speak perfect English or does something that they see as culturally wrong. But yet it’s ok for them to disrespect Asians in Asia? Hypocritical and arrogant to the 9th degree. And probably more words that I can’t think of atm.


  • administrators

    @natalie_ng Yup, but style of delivery is key. Just calling them mass murderers won’t go down well, but funny stuff like below. It would be more palatable for at least other non-whites.

    bs6USEH.jpg


  • Empress of War

    @secondstrike So in other words, if they think they’re the perfect race with upstanding morals that could do no wrong, we emphasize the wiping out of natives, slavery (while preaching “all is made equal before God”), the holocaust, the invention of nuclear wars, Agent Orange, Christian homophobia, pedophilia, and the list goes on.


  • administrators

    @natalie_ng @WokenUp There’s a good paper called White Fragility that, at least partially, explains their behavior

    My summary is this.

    Simply put, they are like spoiled children, who perceives any race-based stress to be “injustice” but are completely blind to their own privilege.

    The core theme throughout is IGNORANCE - whites lives in, protect, and perpetuate ignorance of their race’s crimes against humanity. The key therefore, is to shatter their ignorance without mercy. To shout it, spread it, everywhere.

    If their ignorance is a dark room, it’s our job to flood the room with giant studio lights 24/7/365 (also applies to brainwashed POC who think everything is “dandy”)

    @WokenUp said in Asians and dyed hair:

    Once though when I was taking the tram I saw one with dyed blonde hair who was engaging in some serious PDA with a white guy. Guy was practically molesting her but she was just standing there, smiling while the guy was kissing her boobs and fondling her. It was so disgusting.

    Sounds like they were trying to show off. Who does that in a tram anyways? I’ll admit to making out with my boyfriend (now husband) before when we were dating in public but we found a very secluded spot to do so, away from the majority of people. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were showing off, especially since white-worshippers’ main goal is to have a basic white boy on their arm like an accessory all for the sake of showing off.

    On the first white woman; yeah I’m not surprised. Whites like to be dramatic and make a scene over every little thing. That’s why you often see them hogging up the line in a department store yelling and complaining about why a shirt isn’t made in their size (hint: it’s because they’re outrageously obese) or why McDonald’s coffee is so hot that they burned themselves when they spilled it over themselves (it’s because they’re idiots).

    And being petty is their thing. Your story kind of reminds me of the time my mom accidentally ran a stop sign (it was hidden by tree branches so she didn’t see it) and after driving for another couple of miles, she parked her car in front of the grocery store. Then out of nowhere, a white woman came charging up to her and started screaming at her for running a stop sign. My mom was bewildered and asked the woman which stop sign she ran. The woman then told her it was the sign that was a couple miles away from where they were. My mom just stared at her because…WHO DOES THAT? Chase someone for miles just to tell them they ran a stop sign? You either have to be insanely petty or just straight up insane or have way too much time on your hands.

    I mean, sure, I’ll be slightly irritated if it was my turn to go but the person that’s supposed to yield to me ran the stop sign but c’mon, I got things to do and places to be. I don’t have time to chase someone for miles just to tell them they ran the stop sign LOL.

    White people though…they’re a whole different story!

    That woman going out into a full racist tirade indicates that a large number of whites, if not almost all of them, are racist, sometimes without them even realizing it. Although I suspect that this woman may have wanted to pick a fight with you because you’re Asian. It’s just a suspicion though, I’m not 100% sure. For all I know, she may just like to pick fights with everyone. But based on what you’ve told me and what I’ve been told by other Asian women, white women do tend to enjoy bullying them. My mom told me straight up that she’s gotten harassed and bullied by white women several times…that stop sign incident was just one of them.

    Whites, in general, are very racist but their worst racism comes out when they’re facing a POC of the same gender. So just as Asian men suffer a lot of crap by white men, Asian women do suffer quite a bit of discrimination at the hands of white women as well. The only difference is that white women are more likely to put on a friendly pretense (because they don’t want people hating them) than white men are and they don’t hold as much power in the world as white men. So they just take out their racism in silly, petty ways (which aren’t super detrimental, but it’s annoying).

    On the second white woman:

    so do White Americans only see non-white people as “Indian”, or “Chinese” without considering them as human?

    Yep, pretty much. To them, we’re all caricatures of stereotypes they thought up in their heads.

    A lot of whites get upset easily if you criticize them even in the slightest way, no matter how polite or how formal you were, because they were all raised in an individualistic culture where each one of them is brought up to believe him/herself a special snowflake. It’s just a result of white parenting style, I think. Hence the entitlement attitude and fragile egos.

    They seem to take the wrong things too seriously and take the things that should be taken seriously as a joke. It’s really f-ked up. Religion is one thing i can think of. In comedy shows, every other religion is free game but oh no, the second you joke about Christianity, suddenly it’s not okay and they get offended yet they don’t see how offensive they are.

    Yep, that’s how they are. It’s okay for them to joke and laugh at other people’s expense but the moment you do the same thing to them, they start crying and whining. That’s why I like to fuck with their heads by saying something outrageously offensive about them and when they get upset and call me racist, I’ll just point out that I was just joking and that it’s them who need to relax. They’ve been doing that to POC for centuries so when you do it back at them, it’s hilarious seeing their reaction.

    “White Woman gets vision that she is supposed to rule over the helpless POC because of a dream and does so by assimilating other “lesser” cultures into it’s empire”. Asian characters had names that do not fit. Indian characters were given Chinese names. Chinese characters were given White characters were given Chinese names. The only names that made sense were, surprise surprise, the European ones.

    Like I said, even if it’s irl and outside of role-playing, we’re just there as caricatures to them. The only ones they consider “default human” are themselves. Which is why, imo, I don’t mind spreading funny/negative but truthful stereotypes about them to turn them into caricatures. Two can play that game.

    @natalie_ng I can see that happening with the Japanese girls. HK, Taiwanese and Singaporeans don’t surprise me either. They’ve all been influenced by the West quite a lot. I go to university now where there’s a large Chinese student demographic. I have never seen any of them with blonde hair. I’ve seen some with dark brown though but never pure blonde. Once though when I was taking the tram I saw one with dyed blonde hair who was engaging in some serious PDA with a white guy. Guy was practically molesting her but she was just standing there, smiling while the guy was kissing her boobs and fondling her. It was so disgusting. I was uncomfortable. The lady that was sitting next to them was uncomfortable too. But it points towards the self-hate, internalized racism $hit. Idk if these two were in a relationship but it was gross.

    I agree with you about this kind of behaviour. Strangely enough, their behaviour translates over to the online world as well. I’ll give you some examples. On one website an admin (White American woman), well let’s just say she was not good at taking any kind of criticism. And this is a prime example of what you’re talking about with whites being fake and being polite but not actually liking you or wanting to hang out with you. And the racism showing up. Basically, she tried to pick a fight with me over some stupid petty crap on something I was doing. We had a PM exchange back and forth. Initially, she was “civil”, but still quite patronizing and condescending. I pointed this out to her and she just got even more patronizing and condescending. Then after it was clear I was refusing to buy into her bullshit and bullying she dropped the nice act and went into a full out racist tirade, saying that there may be a “language” barrier. I was like, wtf, we’re both speaking English you racist POS. Then after that, she got another admin and the two played that silent intimidation game in chat box because of her f-king bruised ego over some stupid petty crap. Y’know that phrase, making a mountain out a molehill? That was her. I was like, wtf? You are a freaking 20+year old woman who is a freaking admin not a goddamn mafia member. So yeah…she exposed her true colours to me right there. I’m not American and even if I was, this was just petty, but she seemed to see no problem with it.

    On another website called “Perfect Pandemonium”, one of the admins…(White woman), was one nasty piece of work. She said she was open to new ideas but when I threw some ideas her way, she shut me down straight away and everything was always about her, her, her, her, her. She even said something like “I can’t play Indian”. If this was real life, I would have wanted to punch her. She thought Indian was a freaking costume you could get put on and take off which made me think, so do White Americans only see non-white people as “Indian”, or “Chinese” without considering them as human? Because that is worrying. Beyond that, she bullied a new member who joined the site and when I pointed out that she probably scared that member she got defensive and hostile. She was the freaking admin and she didn’t see anything wrong with what she did. Instead, she pretty much mocked me in private messages. Then she banned me for basically pointing out that she was being a bullying POS. It’s not like I went out and screamed at her “OMG YOU B***** YOU WERE A POS TO THAT PERSON” even though that was literally what she was being. I didn’t swear or insult her or anything but she did and she couldn’t even see her own faults. To my experience, it’s only White people that do this. Every single minor, stupid petty quibble I’ve had is with White people. And a lot (white Americans), I feel like I can’t joke with them. They seem to take the wrong things too seriously and take the things that should be taken seriously as a joke. It’s really f-ked up. Religion is one thing i can think of. In comedy shows, every other religion is free game but oh no, the second you joke about Christianity, suddenly it’s not okay and they get offended yet they don’t see how offensive they are.

    There is something that might interest you. White people seem to love Asians when Asians are serving their perverted fantasies. There is a forum role playing website called “Imperium Renaissance” I went on that had about 3/4 POC characters but all the characters are played by White People. The whole thing is just one big White Saviour fantasy basically. The history was basically “White Woman gets vision that she is supposed to rule over the helpless POC because of a dream and does so by assimilating other “lesser” cultures into it’s empire”. Asian characters had names that do not fit. Indian characters were given Chinese names. Chinese characters were given White characters were given Chinese names. The only names that made sense were, surprise surprise, the European ones. They had fleshed out a comprehensive history but I pointed out some holes in it. But the admin seemed to think that I didn’t understand the history and again, the patronizing came out. I haven’t been back to it because it pi$$ed me off so much with the whitewashing and the sheer stupidity of it.

    @WokenUp

    I’m wondering though, is the dyed hair thing prevalent only among Asians in Western countries and K-pop, or would it be the same in Asian countries? And is it prevalent among teenagers and youth in general?

    Depending on the country but yes, I would say dyed hair is very common in Asian countries it seems. I used to go to a college where a third of the student body were international exchange students from Asia and I noticed that the vast majority of the Japanese girls had dyed hair. Not blonde, but just very dark red or dark brown, which looked okay. A lot of the Hong Kongers, Taiwanese and Singaporeans also had dyed dark red/brown hair. Koreans and mainland Chinese, back then, didn’t dye their hair much at all but I heard that had changed since I was in college.

    This can be very hard because some people (White people in my experience), are very good at pretending to be nice to your face but then the more you hang around them, the racism rears it’s ugly face and then they’ll expose their true colours.

    You hit the nail on the head with this one. The majority of whites are fake af and just 'cause they’re polite to you, doesn’t mean they actually like you or want to hang out with you. They just don’t wanna be hated.

    @natalie_ng Black hair is definitely the best. I prefer Asian girls to keep their hair black or a colour close to it. If it’s dyed blonde, I find it very strange, like they don’t like their own hair colour or maybe they’re trying to prove a point or something. I don’t know why they do it. With Asian guys, same thing. I’m wondering though, is the dyed hair thing prevalent only among Asians in Western countries and K-pop, or would it be the same in Asian countries? And is it prevalent among teenagers and youth in general? Because this kind of thing, I doubt it happen among adults that don’t work in the entertainment industry. And I agree with @asianmovement on this one. That’s what I think of when I see blonde hair. Internalized racism. Everything but blonde screams internalized racism to me. And it’s in K-pop as well. The ironic thing is, K-pop helps Asians born overseas be a little prouder of their heritage but there’s something very weird going on here underneath all of it and the blonde hair…here’s the thing. I don’t think the Korean idols themselves have self-hatred but the Asian-Americans/Asian-Canadians may have and they are part of the fan-base. So when you’ve got a blonde-dyed Korean guy/girl and White and Asian people fawning over them as “OMG SO AWESOME”, then it just fuels the self-hatred of western-born Asians even more. Then you have some White fans (primarily American), who like to act condescending and arrogant for what reason I don’t know and then the Asian-American females imitate this behaviour. It’s really f-ked up and the only thing that I think would fix it, is time and surrounding yourself with good people that do not hate themselves. By this, I mean, Asians, black people, any people that don’t hate themselves. AND, and this is a big and, people who DON’T tear you down for being Asian. This can be very hard because some people (White people in my experience), are very good at pretending to be nice to your face but then the more you hang around them, the racism rears it’s ugly face and then they’ll expose their true colours. Now for some reason, some Asians still hang around these people for what reason I do not know. But I think that’s the beast Asian-American females have to face and confront head-on. But the problem is, the racism is so deep that it’s virtually impossible to deal with. I’m not American-Asian so when I talk to American-Asians online, especially East Asian, some of them, I feel like…Idk, there’s something missing in their heads. Like, there’s a screw loose somewhere. Same thing with some Singaporeans. Funnily enough, this is all females. The men, not so much. Why is that? I don’t know. Now I don’t know how much of this is true but I have heard that some Singaporeans prefer white guys to local guys solely for their race. White worship and white supremacy seemed to have found its foothold in Singapore and the women seem to be all too happy to play along with it while throwing their guys under the bus.

    @natalie_ng lol, I dunno I still find it kinda hot, but I get what you’re saying.


  • Empress of War

    @CoarseCourse I don’t mind teens doing it, like I said before, as a teen, I had crushes on Asian guys with dyed, spiked hair because it looked cool back then.

    But on adults, it just looks plain weird. Kinda like how I and some other girls used to wear these things in our preteen years: Womens-Girls-Gothic-Elastic-Adjustable-Tattoo-Choker-Necklace-Bracelet-Anklet-Leg-Chain-Black-Necklace-0.jpg

    Looks fine on kids/teens, not so great anymore on adults, lol.

    I don’t mind dyed hair, but I agree that I’m not a fan of blond hair dyes on Asians. Having said that, I’ve had my hair dyed a few colors, as well as just bleached (when it was a thing) in my teens. As an adult, I prefer it black.

    I don’t think having dyed hair automatically means they’re a self-hater, especially in the context of where I grew up, lots of ppl dye their hair, particularly is they’re part of a “counter culture”. Lots of punk rockers where I grew up, so naturally, I, and other ppl, had adopted the look.


  • Empress of War

    Just wanna post this here to further illustrate my point:

    @natalie_ng I definitely prefer natural straight black hair on Asian girls. Seeing bright colors in an Asian girl’s hair can be kind of cute, but Asian girls are perfect the way they are naturally, and you can’t improve upon perfection. Just my thoughts.

    @secondstrike Well, it’s a good thing you didn’t “accidentally stumble” onto dragon fleshlights. Those are even worst o.O (and no, don’t google them :P )

    Aren’t they such “super innovative genuises”? LOL

    @natalie_ng These people are so ridiculous. I swear only white people can come up with this shit.

    @natalie_ng not feeling them. The first one with purple looked good though. The real winner in all this are the hair chemical companies. Maybe they’re behind pushing the bltg movement across the globe.

    @secondstrike ROFL @ the Hugo ref!!!

    But those are white girls tho. Asian girls usually (not always, but usually) style their hair more tastefully.

    @natalie_ng I would agree with you , everything buy blonde. Blone hair on asians scream no good internalized racism to me.


  • administrators

    @natalie_ng said in Asians and dyed hair:

    I would prefer women with blue, purple, pink,

    I have bad associations with curly hair, obesity, grunge clothing, poor hygiene, nose rings, and invitations to watch feminist plays.


  • Empress of War

    @secondstrike Interesting. I think for me personally, I would prefer women with blue, purple, pink, etc…colored hair over something like blonde (can’t stand piss-colored hair and plus, it screams white worship to me) AS LONG as the weird colors are done tastefully like this: tumblr_myag3h1J2B1savuajo1_400.jpg

    I actually think that looks pretty cool. I can tolerate brown/dark red on women. For men though, I think black is best. I used to not mind brown/red highlights on guys but I’m way past my teenage years since then.


  • administrators

    @natalie_ng I am fine with different hair colors on Asian men and women, but some colors just don’t work. Whenever, I see blue, purple, pink, green and other colors that hint that they’re a part of the bltg army that describes themselves as sex positive, cis gender, heteronormative, etc I get totally turned off.

    I think Black, light blonde, autumn brown, rust red can look fine on women. For men, I think they should avoid blonde. It’s a feminine color that only suits white men.
