Why are people getting upset over Katy Perry’s Performance? It’s what happens when you get Asian fever. People get it all the time when they are exposed to that culture. I got it when I was 12 after picking up a comic of the Peach Girls Anime series and when my friend invited me over to try her mom’s kimchi for the first time (All said in humor, partially true) .
But ya’ll don’t complain when a white male has asian fever…
When a white girl dresses up as a geisha all ya’ll suddenly become feminists. The history of a woman’s role in Asian culture was all about pleasing her spouse, I sure do hope that we focus on that alarming issue than a stupid performance.
Her performance sexualized the image of a Geisha? Have you looked at the history of Geishas? That performance wasn’t even sexual…
I’m so confused,
It was just a performance guys, and it was Katy Perry, yes she looked kinda stupid but it didn’t seem racist, do we even like her music, who cares!?!?!?
I love you too, I want to work and live there so badly, but given the circumstance that I am committed to my boyfriend(it’s really hard to find one of those so i’m latching on for the long run) whose profession mainly resides in the entertainment industry of good old Hollywood, there’s a fat chance that he would ever move. That and I have never really experienced being there when its raining.
Why did I bob my hair? For several reasons. I did it because I wanted to, for one thing; because I found it easier to take care of; because I thought it more becoming; and because I felt freer without long, entangling tresses. But above and beyond these and several other reasons I had my hair cut short because, to me, it typiﬁed a progressive step, in keeping with the inner spirit that animates my whole existence. In one way, whether I wear my hair short or not is of little importance. But viewed in another way, bobbed hair is not just a trivial, independent act of hair-dressing separate and apart from my life itself. It is part and parcel of life—one of the myriad things which by themselves may apparently mean nothing, but which in the aggregate help to form that particular complexity of expression which is myself. This sounds a bit cryptic; but let me elucidate a little. Whether we know it or not, every single thing we do has a relationship to our lives as a whole, for the simple reason that what we do is the expression of what we think—consciously or unconsciously. You may say that it matters very little whether a woman wears her hair long or has it cut short, but that is really not true.
"Regardless of split ends or whether the cut suits the shape of her face, long hair has come to signify many of the qualities that a man looks for in a mate. His reaction is primeval. Evolutionary psychologists believe that a head of long, healthy hair has been a basic indicator of a woman’s well-being since the dawn of mankind. Cave paintings celebrated long-haired women - the longer the hair the more fertile and, therefore, desirable she was - and nothing had changed when Botticelli painted the Birth of Venus, complete with those flowing locks, millennia later. These days you need only watch a shampoo commercial to see that long hair is still shorthand for sexual attractiveness. Glossy, shoulder-length tresses are tossed from side to side as the ultimate sign of a woman at her peak….Our hair has always played a major part in the sexual drama of life. Longer hair is associated with youth perhaps because as young girls we usually wear our hair long, and it is generally the case that when women become mothers they cut their hair for the sake of practicality, continuing to wear it shorter and shorter as they get older. This, of course, coincides with a gradual falling away of libido and sexual activity. While long hair appears to indicate to the male brain a more submissive and available woman, in simple terms it also distinguishes women from men in appearance. That’s why it is such a powerful symbol of femininity and why, conversely, if a woman even subconsciously feels she is losing interest in sex, she will cut her hair….if a woman is looking for a man, she’s not going to cut her hair off. It’s a fact that long hair has a broader appeal to the opposite sex - I’d say nine out of ten men prefer long hair to short - which means long-haired ladies are more likely to catch a guy’s eye. It’s no surprise, then, that most of the women that come to my salon wanting a drastic chop are in a stable relationship. They’re not looking to attract a man. But just like men, I think women in general believe long hair is flirtier and sexier than short….In the wake of the French Revolution, modish English women adopted cropped styles…Similarly, in the Roaring Twenties and Swinging Sixties, women bobbed their hair to indicate that they were pleasing themselves rather than their menfolk.
What’s interesting to note, however, is that whenever a trend for cropped hair has taken hold, it has been followed closely by a return to the fashion for long locks. Why? Well, whatever the empowerment of going short, its historical associations remain negative. “
I think this is self explanatory. Were’ nothing without our hair!!!!!
We hates us some poor people. First, they insist on being poor when it is so easy to not be poor. They do things like buy expensive designer belts and $2500 luxury handbags.
I totally get that it’s horrible and illegal to profile people. But still #SMFH over a not-filthy-rich person spending $2,500 on a handbag.â Errol Louis (@errollouis) October 29, 2013
To be fair, this isn’t about Errol Louis. His is a belief held by many people, including lots of black people, poor people, formerly poor people, etc. It is, I suspect, an honest expression of incredulity. If you are poor, why do you spend money on useless status symbols like handbags and belts and clothes and shoes and televisions and cars?One thing I’ve learned is that one person’s illogical belief is another person’s survival skill. And nothing is more logical than trying to survive.
