I feel like very few, or at least not many of the people of tumblr are aware of what is going on in my home country Hong Kong right now.

You guys gave alot of coverage and support when Scotland was voting for its independance, so I’m hoping you’ll all support the people of Hong Kong as well.

Right now, many of us are in a mass demonstration of pro-democracy against China. But wait a sec, isn’t Hong Kong China? This is a big misconception amongst foreigners, but please, we are far from being similar to China at all.

A little history class: Hong Kong used to be colonized by the British, and before you white-knights begin going all “them damn white racist ppl taking over another asian country” please don’t. We are thankful Britain took us under its wing and instilled in us values that I feel made us what we are today; that is, a democratic people with respect for free speech, amongst many things.

On the other hand, China is communist, with government controlled media and news. Google, instagram, facebook and many tv shows are blocked in China. It really is just a few steps from North Korea imo.

So what’s the problem here? Britain unfortunately had to hand back Hong Kong to China, but one of the requirements is that Hong Kong be allowed to operate as ‘one country two systems’, meaning Hong Kong should be able to have its own democratic government. But China has broken its promise. A while back, China tried to put a mandatory ‘national education’ curriculum in all our primary schools. We all know what that is; a communist brainwashing regime. And now, they have announced that in 2017 Hong Kong will be able to vote for its president; BUT only from 3 candidates hand picked by its PRO-BEIJING legislation.

As you can see, China is trying to takeover completely and turn us into another communist state.

Of course, we have taken to the streets. In a mirror if the Tiananmen protests, students have also stepped up to fight for our rights and our future, albeit in a peaceful protest of course. But the police force who have always been a friend of the people, are now responding with force, something that had never been done before in Hong Kong.

First it was pepperspray, then teargas. Then, armed forces came in qith rubber bullets. They warn they will come out with live ammunition soon if we do not get off the streets but the people continue to sit tight, disrupting businesses China so strive to takeover and make use of. It’s been 2 days now, but the people plan to continue at least till 1st October or even beyond. The significance is that October 1st is China’s National day, not ours, Hong Kong has not been granted it’s own National day.

Please spread the news. This is a country we’re talking about. These are my people.

You can join this event to wear yellow in support of my people on October 1st.

You can also read a more detailed explanation of what’s going down here and watch a live feed here.

Hey Men.

To any guys following my blog -

Instead of saying “Not all Men” do this or do that, how about you acknowledge that a LARGE percentage of you do and there’s a large scale of incidents.

You may not have killed a girl because she didn’t have sex with you or raped someone but I bet you have judged…

no. i do not HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE that a LARGE percent of men sexually harass women. and as for judging, you have judged men to be unfairly judgmental. yes, if one man commits sexual harassment, that man is wrong. if one man looks at a woman and assumes she is a whore, then perhaps his assessment is wrong, but perhaps she is standing on a corner, hooking. who knows. but it is not my place to condemn an entire gender of a race as stereotypically bias and gender egoist. all we can do is take it one case at a time, one man at a time, and one woman at a time. you see, you have just committed what you have condemned as wrong. you, theyreallysaidthis, judged men unfairly for a stereotype brought about by fratboy parties and your own biased research into the sex charged world of repercussionless online dating.  

i have judged a person as being of ‘loose morals’. i have judged men and women as being racist, and bigoted. was i wrong for doing so? my judgement is my own. as is yours. but you must judge individuals for individual actions. to make blanket statements about men having to acknowledge that a large percentage of men judge women.

i challenge you to count up how many self centered, hateful, immature, dogmatic men have messaged you with sex as the agenda, and putting you down as the tools to achieve victory.  then, count the number of MEN IN THE ENGLISH SPEAKING WORLD (assuming english is your only language.  if not, include whatever else you speak) and put that in a percentage.  i believe you will find you have not scratched the surface.  

no, there is no excuse whatsoever for vapid degradation at the calloused wills of small minded men.  but, let them be individuals.  not representatives.

To this dude above me - no, you see. You don’t get it. I AM NOT MAKING A GENERALIZATION ABOUT THE WHOLE MALE RACE. GREAT. I’m proud of you, you don’t harass women but you’re still not accepting that it happens all the time. AND NO, I am not judging men by online dating. I am making my assessment because of my LIFE. What I experience every single day whether it be on the internet or in person. And please I’ve traveled the world and it happens everywhere so no need to blame it on “English speaking men”. I am NOT making a generalization and I absolutely realize a lot of guys are not shitty. But let’s be honest you just said “maybe that woman was a corner hooking”. NO we, women are living our lives and have to do nothing for the unwanted attention.

I have worn baggy sweatpants and a sweatshirt and a hat down the street and still get cat called. I’ve had guys stalk me home because I won’t give them attention. I’ve had to consciously think about “well I can’t have sex with this dude too early because I actually wanna date him” instead of just letting it happen. I have to be self conscious wearing shorts and a tank top when it’s 100 degrees outside because I know it will cause more attention.

So, don’t tell me we will take this one woman at a time because it happens to too many of us. Trust me, Women do not want to hate men for no good reason (at least I don’t), we just want to stop being objectified and judged for things that are acceptable men do. I have plenty of male friends and have had plenty of respectable relationships with great guys. I’ll say it one more time, I realize it’s not all men but when you accept that it happens way too often you can help start changing the problem. We are not asking for special treatment, we are asking for equal treatment.
