As a Brit, I’d like to remind the world that we invented curry, it’s our unofficial national dish. We eat it more than anything else and you can go into any of our fish and chip shops and get curry all over your deep fat fried foods. That whole white people thing is just the USA. I think we exported all the people with no taste which might explain a lot.
As an Indian I can assure you that we’ve been eating curry since 2000 BCE so go take your colonialism elsewhere.
Did this guy seriously try to claim curry is a British food?
White brits think they invented tea, this is what happens when you barely teach colonialism in schools.
The British saying “we exported the people with bad taste” like British food isn’t infamously gray and bland. The audacity.
THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII
No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks
