The man makes a good point.

Okay, so Vivienne is a badass babe for sure. Cause wow. Rockin that headgear.
:D I hope you on’t mind I made it transparent.
Oh that just makes it better. Now I can put her perfect face on everything,
This is a new degree that’s being offered at my university, the University of British Columbia.
I invite you to take a good look at the second “highlight”:
Address global problems arising from Asian growth and transformation including challenges of sustainability.
Wow. Holy fuck, UBC. No. If this is the kind of problematic, racist mindset you’re going to put behind your “Master of Public Policy” degree, you need to scrap the whole thing, go sit in a corner, and think really hard about all the wrong decisions you’ve made in your life. You may be there a while, goodness knows you’ve made a lot.
Global problems (especially regarding sustainability) aren’t arising because Asian countries are growing and transforming. Global problems arose because the West established and perpetuates unsustainable standards of living, forcibly pushes their model on other countries and tells them that they matter less if they aren’t at those arbitrary standards, and didn’t even pretend to listen when scientists and other academics came out to tell policy makers that there was a problem.
That’s a highlight of your program?
*Blaming Asian countries for following a standard Western ones established and holds up as ideal in the international community?*
*Framing sustainability challenges as issues that are coming up because Other Countries are becoming more advanced?*
NO. No no no no NO.
Recognise that you are part of the culture that STARTED THE PROBLEM. Own up to your own mistakes. Don’t blame others.
Oh, but wait, I guess if you were able to do those things, you wouldn’t be teaching people how to make public policy, now would you?
I’m currently taking the survey. I am not happy. I want this to be spread as far and as wide as possible. I’ve submitted it here as well as at AngryAsianGirlsUnited.
UBC absolutely needs to be shamed for this.
As a Chinese-Canadian with close friends from Vancouver or attending UBC this is very disappointing. Time after time I hear stories reminding me of the fact that the other side of the coin of Vancouver’s large Asian population is the “yellow peril” attitude of many white Vancouverites. This program seems to follow that line of thinking.
Thanks for sharing, and I’m glad you responded to their survey.
GOOD OLD FUCKING UBC
I am so not surprised, considering Vancouverites snicker that UBC stands for “University of a Billion Chinese”.

OH MY FUCKING GOD
Do you ever just like flex your foot wrong and it cramps and you’re just like this is it, this is how it ends
Hahaha, omg I can see her getting along splendidly with the Fereldan party members.
And by splendidly I mean crinkled noses and stink eyes at their horridly practical fashion.(via momochanners)
These are my favorite.
DRAGON AGE INQUISITION CHARACTER KIT #3
To Vivienne, there are no impractical clothes, only impractical people. Her magnificent attire is a sign of her station, the jewel of the high court of Orlais where wealth, power, and beauty are inextricably linked.
A thousand arrows would pierce her breast before Vivienne would don beaten steel for so base an urge as protection. If one must wear armor, then have it flatter the form. Hide it beneath fine fabrics more becoming of one’s status, for steel alone will not protect you from the barbed tongues of Orlais.
To dress for comfort or purpose is a scandal—fashion and splendor are all that matter to Vivienne. Shower yourself in gold, let only the finest silks grace your skin, and wear a king’s ransom in pearls and silver upon your feet. Leave the stained tunics and rough cloaks to the commoners and their mud farms–a proper Orlesian climbs mountains in her evening gown, standing taller at the summit in her formidable high-heeled shoes.

Yessss. I’ve been waiting for this one.
If someone asks you to be considerate and you tell them you didn’t do anything then you pretty much look like this
This is perfect.
I would just add that trying to explain to someone that “the thing i just said isn’t sexist/racist/etc and here’s how I know” is equivalent to “your foot doesn’t hurt! i would know because mine doesn’t.”
Why would your foot hurt? You’re not being stepped on.
