I feel like the “why” is pretty obvious.
I want to move to a snowy climate just so I can have this.

LOL that would probably be me after too long. Our winter last year was a joke: we had snow for less than three weeks (which led to this summer’s drought, and all those fires). I hope we get a real winter this year, before I move back to the other side of the mountains. The only time I remember having snow over there for more than four days was Snowpocalypse in 2008. I walked the two blocks to the grocery store and found five cars in the ditch.
It snows here for two days and everyone loses their minds. I saw like 40 cars all skid out in Lynnwood at the intersection where 164th turns into 44th, near 99. Some dude literally tried to stop me, and my friend and I were like “you aren’t a cop, go away, we’re in a subaru.” and he still tried and we were like “we’re also armed, if that makes you feel better?” as we just rolled passed him.
We dropped to -30 for a week and got a few feet of snow. This would work in my area…
Im still alive. I really am.
My sister’s terrarium garden is one of the loveliest things I’ve ever seen.

This is art.
Mixed doesn’t mean white.
Light hair doesn’t mean white.
Light skin doesn’t mean white.
Light eyes do not equal white.
And being mixed doesn’t mean someone is automatically going to be light skinned or white-passing.
So stop using any of those traits as an excuse to whitewash.
Stop derailing criticism of whitewashing with “Well what about mixed people?”. Stop pretending that people who whitewash are showing any real kind of nuance or consideration towards mixed and/or light skinned people of color when they do that. They’re erasing us too because if they really meant to represent mixed people, the’d just cast a mixed person. Not a white person with a spray tan.
This needs to be said. I remember when Mehreen Kasana (a well-respected Pakistani blogger) posted photos of some successful Pakistani women, and this white chick actually reblogged the photos and asked, why do all these Pakistanis look so “white.” Seriously.
Not to mention that a lot of women in South Asian movies are light-skinned, and also, female figures in Indo-Pakistnai art are almost always depicted with light skin, but they are NOT white and do NOT— never WILL— represent white women.
