You are mixed race, you have no control over the way you look and your percentages don’t really mean anything if you feel close to your mixed heritage.
Blood quantum is a colonial fantasy, it’s unfair that biracial and non-mixed people have erased your identity but I can assure you there are many mixed people around just like you and we count.

I hate the word “Exotic” as a compliment from men. HATE IT.

My father was born during in a time period in Japan when mixed children/hafu weren’t really accepted in Japan at all. Things have changed a lot, thankfully.

I know there’s been a lot of discussion on this blog lately, but that doesn’t change the fact that this blog was created as a way to give mixed people a safe space in which certain issues could be discussed .
BTW mixed people don’t all look one way (as I’m sure you know) different ethnicities and different cultures add up to some pretty unique experiences .
So, no worries anon.. You’re submission will do just fine..
…There’s so many things incorrect with this ask that I’m just gonna save it and make a post about it later…
