'Shut Up And Look Pretty'  | The quiet history of the "traditional Asian woman." Being submissive is out of style and out of touch ... yet this stereotype still lives on.

Standard Procedure  To agents of the TSA and it's many European counterparts: patting down my crotch in an ultimately vain attempt to find explosives every single time I travel hardly seems "random". It's not a counter terrorist measure, it's just racial profiling. #flyingwhilemuslim
