What can I say?

I'm a Pakistani Muslim girl in the UK. I mostly cry about anime, manga, western comics and cartoons, as well as a good deal of Bollywood movies and Live action shows.
And I draw. Sometimes.

And Aaila’s diary. That’s what me and my friends used to do with random notebooks back in Pakistan. Aaila did the same thing as adolescent girls

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 <3

!!!!!
NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!
This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”
All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)
Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.   

so are you telling me that Japan’s punk phase was really the kawaii phase

Aaila and Sarmad are so cute. They are so polite to each other ( well generally apart from the time Sarmad read Aaila’s diary.) But still. Like. Aaila being polite and declining Sarmad’s offer for a lift home. During firing. Too polite.

I have officially become obsessed with this trash drama that is de ijazat jo tu, and I do not care, I enjoy it whole heartedly but I will not admit that in real life because I am CYNICAL. And vaguely have the persona of a snob.

CULTURAL GENOCIDE:  Before and After photo of a young Cree boy, forced to attend a Canadian “Indian school.” (1910)

Despicable.

I want to show this to white people who say that cultural appropriation isn’t a big deal because you’re taking a part of someone’s culture that was insulted, attacked and taken away from them for years and years and now you want to wear it as some sort of costume or fashion trend. But your ancestors were the ones to forcefully take away and obliterate OUR cultures for centuries. We STILL aren’t allowed to freely embrace our cultures because white people love to insult us and make fun of us, but white people themselves love wearing it because they think their mayo asses are entitlted to everything. Nope fuck off.

I really like how Aaila and her friend dress up in De ijazat jo tu. Like, their bags a’re so traditional and cute and make me so happy. And Aaila’s friends glasses are super cute. (And I also own one of the shirts she wears-it’s a super cute Khaadi shirt!! But of course she wore it with a cute pink dupatta)
