A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

My grandmother was a mixed-race woman (half Chinese, half white) who was adopted into by a Chinese family. She had light eyes and curly red-brown hair. She never knew who her parents were, but we always suspected that she was Russian Jewish because of the large presence of Russian Jews in Shanghai at that time.

Things I realize about myself

  • I have no game
  • I need to get laid
  • But I hate most everyone and feel too tired to socialize and would rather spend nights studying or reading or doing a billion other things than get to know people and inevitably get disappointed with all the flaws and vices of ordinary, normal people

someones mom: make yourself at home, would you like something to drink?

me: *very dry mouth like spongebob in sandy’s tree dome*

me: no thank you

I don’t need it…. I don’t need it….

Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.

microaggressions:

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.

Holy crap, I never realized.

It’s funnier too because in Chinese culture (and a few other Asian cultures), women don’t take the husband’s name at all when married. So… my mom’s last name has always been my mom’s last name.
