this adorable kimono romper I bought online came in the mail today and I absolutely love it :3💕
It’s not a kimono, please (fashion) educate yourself
it’s a mainstream-ized kimono ^.^ has the elements of a kimono and the elements of casual, mainstream fashion :D which is why I love it! ~ best of both worlds :)
Yes yes, so you told. Don’t ‘:D’ me, this is not a kimono, this does not have a cultural meaning, don’t refer to it as kimono. Thanks.
:D I’m going to call it a kimono if i want to :D free speech baby! also, no person of japanese decent has complained, just white people. lOL. if it has nothing to do with you, chill! you’re getting worked up over nothing. enjoy life and find peace^.^
"if it has nothing to do with you, chill!"
Are you kidding me? I’m not the type of person who’s only worried about myself, I’m not that egocentric. It’s not because some people don’t stand up for themselves that others don’t have to either
Luckily, no Japanese women or men are upset though? If they are logical human beings, they’d think “hey it’s cool our culture is being seen as fashionable and people are getting interested”. That’s literally all it is. There’s no negative connotation behind me wearing this or calling it a kimono, when it is in fact a mainstream-ized kimono. ^.^ No actual Japanese people are offended, just you! It’s just you getting worked up over nothing! I’m not only worried about myself other, I care about the people around me, and have thought through “will this offend actual Japanese people? No, i highly doubt it. I’m not being mean to them or their culture, i’m embracing it and liking how there’s fashionable mainstream-ized versions of their beautiful kimonos” :3 only positive vibes coming from me! Maybe take a look at yourself and make the decision to put your time towards something more productive ♡
"I’m not shitting on your culture! I’m embracing it! I’m white! I can do whatever I want! Free speech! Who cares that I don’t know anything about actual Japanese culture! No Japanese I know is upset, only you! But like that doesn’t matter because I’m entitled to wear whatever the fuck I want! Now stop being offended and let me be edgy!" - Piece of Shit otherwise known as fitness-fits-me
She literally just could of said it was a floral romper, why is she so obsessed with saying it’s a kimono? Like???
To be 100% honest white people claiming that only white people are offended by racism or appropriation is the most asinine argument I have heard on tumblr. Yes white girl, continue to speak for me and all other Japanese people on how it’s so fucking honoring for you to call your weird ass romper a kimono. Tell me more about my culture.
Please un-interest yourself in our fashion. Thank you.
do you see this shit

Uh oh ok hey fitness-fits-me hey hi
My name is Jun.
This is I.
I is of Japanese descent. As in I was born and raised there.
And my Dad is Japanese.
I lived in Japan.
I speak Japanese.
I am from Japan. Japan.
And yeah I am offend by your pasty cracker ass and your cracker activities.
As would pretty much ANY OTHER JAPANESE PERSON YOU COULD ASK. THE FACT THAT YOU KNOW NONE DOESN’T MEAN NO ONE IS OFFENDED.
There is no such thing as a modernized kimono. A floral dress isn’t a kimono. A floral dress is a fucking floral dress.
There is nothing complimentary about bastardizing our culture’s traditional wear. AND THERE’S NOTHING COMPLIMENTARY ABOUT CALLING OUR TRADITIONAL WEAR / CULTURE FASHIONABLE BECAUSE WHAT’S TRENDY TO NASTY WHITE PEOPLE IS OF NO FUCKING CONCERN TO US.
Japanese people in DAY TO DAY LIFE DON’T EVEN WEAR KIMONO.
You know when i’ve worn kimono in my life??????
******For my aunt and uncle’s wedding
****My father’s funeral
**My baby sister’s first Hinamatsuri
so on and so on and so on.
THIS IS NOT DAY TO DAY WEAR. AND IT’S SURE AS FUCK NOT SOMETHING TO CALL ANY UGLY PIECE OF FABRIC WITH A FLOWER ON IT.
So is it offensive for you to bastardize the term to seem worldly with your Chinese sweat shop .99 floral dress? Yes, it’s very fucking offensive.
Kimonos are sacred to us and not for you to bastardize. Oh and I should mention that a traditional women’s kimono can cost upwards for 10,000 us dollars.
So what the fuck is your 99 cent piece of garbage now?
It’s demeaning, insulting, offensive, laughable, it’s fucking ridiculous and you look like the most ignorant bigoted redneck transparent pasty skinned fuck for actually believing that you’re complimenting us by disregarding us all together.
Man Tumblr, I literally woke up 20 minutes ago. This is some rough shit to deal with at 5 in the morning. Kill me.
