I bleed it out…
I’ve opened up these scars… 
I’ll make you face this…!

I’ve pulled myself so far…
I’ll make you face this now…!!

This started out as just some facial expression practice and it quickly turned into an all out photoset. I’m beyond happy with it though, I have a thing for blood so that’s always fun to color. Enjoy, you guys ! 

Kiminos are made from silk, and silk was first made in China 3500bc. Please stop calling it cultural appropriation since the Chinese made it possible to make it in the first place and also not something japanese.

Thisisnotjapan responds to Glorious Nippon’s own history of cultural appropriation. 

Really? She’s not even going to refute that? She basically just admitted she’s full of shit. Leave it to SJWs. Someone brings actual historical facts and they can’t even respond.

it’s cultural exchange when there’s no malicious intent

I can understand people getting insulted and angry when their culture is disrespected, but the problem I have is that people scream “appropriation” at everything, from eating foreign foods to learning a new language. There seems to be no exchange for Tumblr, EVERYTHING is malicious in SJWs eyes. It’s segregationist attitudes like this that could kill cultures that survive through sharing their culture with other people. Not to mention it stagnates and deteriorates our ability as humans to come closer through cultural understanding and enjoyment. People like thisisnotjapan are POISONOUS to the Japanese culture.

And hell, it’s hypocrisy at its finest given much of Japan’s culture was developed by sharing with countries like China (Kanji anyone?) And hell it continues to modern times. Anime, an animation style considered original to Japan, takes influence from Disney in its early days. And look at the band Baby Metal, a band that combines Japanese pop and western heavy metal together. For some reason none of this is viewed as appropriation by SJWs, and before anyone says “malicious intent, so not appropriation”, if that’s the case, then neither is learning languages or wearing kimonos.

I just don’t get SJWs on this. Why actively stop people from experiencing another culture? Is that not perpetuating ignorance and hate in itself?

?

eating foods from other cultures and learning their languages (as long it’s not done in a fetishistic way) isn’t appropriation either, and whoever is “screaming” about either of those things is about as informed as the person who sent the ask

i made a promise over on my main blog that id draw this

yosuke says “i love you” first (by accident)

I'm writing a supernatural story about a team of vampire hunters in the 1850's and one of the members of the team is from China and another is from India. The other two are Scottish and French respectively. How do I make both the Indian and Chinese characters display a point of view accurate to that culture? I don't want them to just seem like western characters, since obviously they are from different cultures and thus would have different mindsets. What sort of sources should I look into?

Chinese and Indian Vampire Hunters

Look into the Qing Dynasty (since that’s the corresponding era), and consume works that take place in it—that should give you a good idea for viewpoints.

Also, I think there were Taoist exorcists, who might have been vampire hunters? if any Chinese followers want to provide suggestions?

1850 was right in the middle of British colonialism in India, two years after Gandhi was assassinated, so definitely do some research into that. There would be freedom fighters and lots of revolutionary acts and anti-British sentiments. This pdf might help with that, but look for primary sources from Indians living then especially. 

-Mod Satvika

Edit: Gandhi was assassinated in 1948.

I’m Chinese, but australian pretty westernised, although I remember a book I once read (set in the 21st century) where a girl’s grandmother in a ghost hunter. Not vampires though, so doesn’t help.

This site states that Taoist exorcists were mostly priests so that could be a good starting point for research.

Also the concept of what Vampires are is very different in Europe, Asia and India.  We all know the western kind, but the Chinese one is a hopping corpse with other magical powers (and is often portrayed in film to be comically infectious), and Indian Vampires are so diverse it really drives home the point that folklorists will call damn near anything a vampire if it even vaguely resembles a European one. 

And the Vampires of India are EXTREMELY diverse.

I hope you meant “Europe, China, and India” since India is part of Asia

excluding south asian countries from asia is a common but harmful mistake
