I mostly wanted to use this for cosplay,
but it's turned into a whatever blog
There will be a lot of yaoi/shota, so be aware.
And of course, normal anime business.
There will also be some idol posts, mostly
Morning Musume & AKB48.
I just wanted to get this out of my system before tomorrow’s episode…
Fedex Employee Refers to Package Recipient as “Ching Chong”
Sorry, nobody here by that name. Also, you ought to be fired.
Not this again. Got word passed along to me about a recent racist incident involving a FedEx employee… In northern Virginia, a FedEx employee left a doortag regarding a package delivery to the residence of an Asian customer. In the space denoting the recipient’s name, the delivery man wrote "Ching Chong Lee."
Oh, hell no.
Diana L., whose parents received the doortag, contacted customer service to inquire about the name on the package, and how exactly this happened. During the course of this attempted delivery, “Chang” somehow became “Ching Chong” — a familiar racial slur we all know and love. This was not somebody’s honest mistake.

I love the fact that Rin used to talk about Haru to every fucking person he knew… his family, his friends, people in Australia… It’s like he was going around saying “Hi, I’m Rin, nice to meet you! Did I mention this one guy…”
I dreamt about the janken taikai last night…

Tokyo Tower vs. Osaka Tower
This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
Stop white people once and for all
"classy" blackface is still offensive and harmful blackface

"Human beings don’t have a right to water."
Nestlé backed up that statement with this ruthless move at the World Water Forum.
Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.
Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”
Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.
Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!
At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.
Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.
In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.
Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

This is a relevant post, especially since a lot of big companies can’t resist the allure of money. Now they want to put a bill on public water sources?
