have you ever met someone on the internet that you liked so much that you sometimes sit there and think “oh man there are people who are lucky enough to see this person IN THE FLESH ON A REGULAR BASIS and I wonder if they realize how LUCKY they are”

Do you ever wonder if people think that about you?

DO NOT post a picture that has NOTHING to do with the event itself and then tag it with #PrayForSouthKorea.

Do you know how disrespectful this is?

Nearly 300 people are still missing. They are high school students, teachers, and crew with families and so much life waiting for them. And you’re going to post pictures of a K-pop celebrity and tag it with this? People sacrificed their lives to save others. Many freezing in cold and rough waters. Families are desperately and miserably waiting for their loved ones. These are the things you people have to say about it?

What disgusts me even more? #tagsforlikes. Are you kidding me? So many people died, and you are going to use that event to attempt to gain followers? And… really? “Kporn” followed by “PrayForSouthKorea”? “anyway #prayforsouthkorea”? 

I am in disbelief with these people right now. I went on instagram to see if I could find more news that I possibly missed. And these are what I saw in the tags. Ugh. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

*Note: I do acknowledge that not all EXO fans are like this.

[Trigger Warning: This video contains discussions on sexual slavery, abuse, rape, and violence]

COMFORT WOMEN WANTED, a very short documentary filmed by Chang-Jin Lee discussing the lives of Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese, Indonesian, Filipino, and Dutch “Comfort Women” survivors, and a former Japanese soldier. Comfort Women comprised of 200,000 young women and girls, referred to as “Comfort Women,” who were forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Imperial Army. The title, COMFORT WOMEN WANTED, is a reference to the actual text of advertisements which appeared in Asian newspapers during the war. When advertising failed, young women and girls from Korea, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the Netherlands were kidnapped or deceived then forced into sexual slavery. These women and girls were raped and beaten by 50-100 soldiers a day at military rape camps, known as “Comfort Stations.” There are estimations that only 30% survived the ordeal. The “Comfort Women System” is considered the largest case of human trafficking in the 20th century. The remaining Comfort Women are now in their 80s/90s still waiting for a formal apology from the Japanese government, which has attempted to suppress, silence, and erase the issue to the extent of protesting the Comfort Woman statue. Just recently, the imbeciles at Gawking’s Valleywag published an article called “Start-up Flying Dateable Women to San Francisco Like It’s Imperial Japan” essentially trivializing and romanticizing the experiences of Comfort Women and stating it’s “inspiration” from the Comfort Women of World War Two. Many Asian and Asian American readers demanded the removal of the article and an apology. But the writer, Nitasha, wrote a lazy apology instead of constructing an in depth apology, and the article is STILL on their websiteDespite the growing awareness of the issue, this aspect of history has been at most unacknowledged. In this documentary, Chang-Jin Lee attempts to bring light on the organized violence against Comfort Women, and to create a constructive dialogue for the future by acknowledging their place in history.

Why do we spell the country as ‘Philippines’ but the language as ‘Filipino’?

Philippines is an old English name of the country. It was a Spanish colony, the Spanish name for the country is Islas Filipinas. Then the people of the Philippines decided to choose a new language to become the national language. They chose a language called Tagalog. Tagalog called the Philippines the same way as Spahish.

Subsequently they decided to rename Tagalog to Filipino to highlight its role as a national language. And English just borrowed the name.

Wrong.

Philippines is the English name of the country after Islas de Filipinas. How they came up with that name from Filipinas I have no clue but the name has has stuck since the American colonization which in turn derives from a colonial name that has stuck with us during our 333 (when Spain eventually got a foothold in 1565 during Miguel Lopez de Legazpi expedition years later after Magellans voyage and arrival in 1521) years of Spanish colonization. It really should be changed because it’s still a colonial name which comes from a Spanish King we never acknowledged. But I already discussed this here and it’s another topic all together, one that will be very long and passionate so I’ll leave it for another day.

The people of the Philippines did not choose Tagalog to be the national language. The Tagalogs did. In which at the time and still is, the seat of power was in Manila, a Tagalog region. Andres Bonifacio himself declared the people and nation as Katagalugan, “the Tagalog nation”, saying that we were all Tagalog which means “people by the river”, when in fact there are hundreds of other ethnic groups besides the Tagalogs and languages in the archipelago, and not all of them live by a river let alone understand one another. 

They never renamed Tagalog as Pilipino. Tagalog is Tagalog. Pilipino is Pilipino, which essentially is Tagalog with very, very few words borrowed from other Philippine languages but essentially Tagalog in grammar and form. The “Pilipino language” is just a mask and fake nationalistic term to hide the fact that it’s essentially just Tagalog to try and settle the disputes held and still held that we have a national language to represent all of us in a sense of nationalistic pride.

In the Philippines the language is spelled Pilipino not Filipino. The country is officially called Republika ng Pilipinas, or in English, The Republic of the Philippines. Filipino is just the English spelling as the letter “f’ and the sound is not from our indigenous alphabet or sounds, it is instead “p”. The “f” sound, along with j, x, c, and z was only introduced during Spanish and American colonization.

I figured most of my Facebook friends would miss out on some of Martin Luther King, Jr’s quotes that are less palatable for complacent America. So I made some aggressive and hard-to-ignore photos to bomb their feed with for today.
