EVERYONE, ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE NEEDS TO WATCH THIS.
Reblogging because 1. she’s talking about an area of Mongkok, Hong Kong that even I’ve seen easily slides into the seedier area if you walked around the wrong corner. 2. Because EVERYTHING she says is true. It sucks that she felt so unsafe SO SCARED for JUST BEING A GIRL that she had to move. Noone DESERVES it.
The vlogger sounds like she’s about to cry.
Fashion in Hong Kong: In Hong Kong, I noticed an odd trend. It was totally fine for girls/ladies/women to wear short skirts/dresses/long shirts with hemlines barley past your butt as long as you wore tights or shorts under.
When I say “totally fine” I mean, college aged girls dressed like that in the winter and men look on appreciatively.
However, when my international friends wore anything with a lower neckline that exposed any amount of cleavage, they get judged my other women and LEERED at by men, who oggle with no shame. It’s a combination of the fact that they’re foreigners and their clothes - but again NOONE DESERVES IT.
I realize that I also prefer showing off my legs rather than my cleavage, but that’s my personal preference. Whether I’m showing off my legs or my chest, it DOES NOT give anybody the right to judge me and look at me as a piece of meat and think I deserve to feel uncomfortable and unsafe.
In Hong Kong, I saw how some men were looking at girls who dressed like that and I wanted to throw my jacket on those girls… it’s not right. It’s ok to look on and think “Oh, I think she needs a sweater.” and NOT “Why is she trying so hard to get guys to look at her? Is she trying to get raped?” or “Well, if she’s showing it, I’m free to look and judge and make catcalls.”
So watch this video, keep in mind the dress code in Hong Kong/China, and the fact that even the prettiest place in the world has ugly people.
So, feeling like I needed to brush up on what’s going on with Syria because just reading the news updates weren’t giving me a good picture.
And as a law school student, I’m pretty tired of reading…well, not really. But here are a few good ones.
If anyone can direct me to some better ones, feel free to spam my askbox.
1. I don’t want to link Phil DeFranco’s videos because he does not devote a whole video to Syria, but I love his take and way of explaining the situation.
2.John Green’s take:
"Know your News!" Understanding the Syrian Revolution under 4 Minutes"
3. (short read) 9 Questions about Syria you were too embarrassed to ask:

: And not the best video or best explanation, but hey, it’s in animation:

I still haven’t bought Vulnerable II but @_@
Hey… If I’m holding myself from buying those expensive Vans Warped Tour Tickets (because The Used finally decided to come to my city and when I’m NOT studying abroad D: ) at least I can treat myself to this…and possibly that beautiful red The USED hoodie I see in the merch shop since last December…
