Um hi there. Im sorry if this annoys you but you have a really large fanbase and your super nice so i was wondering if you could tell people in the snk fandom to try and not call asians 'orientals' because many people have been calling us that now and its very offensive... In the show they call Mikasa an oriental because of the time it takes place in but you really should not use that word because of the history behind it and its the same as calling a black person the n word. sorry to bother you
yeah, I can post this to get the word out!
I think I’ve seen at least one or two posts using the words “orientals”, but I’m in a small corner of the fandom and follow a little less than 300 blogs, so the issue is probably much bigger than I’m aware.
Uh— mmkay, if y’all’re reading this, then make note to not refer to asians as “orientals” please!
It’d be cool if some of ya could reblog this too… to spread it around, a bit. c:
