I'm pretty sick of the default assumption that everyone on the internet is white. Like I GET it, lots of people are, most places are generally about America and stuff, but would it hurt people to maybe consider that they aren't actually always the centre of the world?

I've been accused of being anti-Japan in fandom for being critical of its media and tone-deaf stories and characters. But you know what, I do the same for Chinese, Korean, and all the rest of our media, too. There is a lot of cultural tension and politically/historically offensive shit here that Westerners don't pick up on, and mostly I ignore those comments since the people making them have no idea how much they don't know.

But then people call me racist or anti-ASIAN and it's like, hello, I am literally Asian. I was literally born in and grew up in Asia. My entirely family and extended family is Asian. I speak three languages and two of them are Asian ones.

If I had a US dollar for every time a random white person from the US stopped in to try to defend THOSE POOR ASIANS from... me, an Asian person, from talking about policies and practices and cultural stuff that basically directly affects my life, I'd be fucking rich.
