Ah right. I'm half-japanese, my father is a jap, my mother is german. I'm jewish, I've lived through japanese racism first hand. I've seen rabid antisemitism first hand, and had the crap spewed at my home, work, and at me by bigots of every stripe, race, ethnicity and sex. I've seen bigotry, hate, racism and all the rest. They need to grow a thicker skin, and I've traveled all over this freaking rock. Japanese racism is it's own special brand of hate for those that aren't pure. Though none get it as badly as Brazilian-Japanese.

So what you're saying is that instead of turning around and standing up for yourself, you just took it? Every time someone slurred you or attacked you, you just rolled over and let them do it because your so thick skinned...

Standing up and fighting back against things is harder than just accepting the status quo. Your thick skin is something to hide behind. If the things you say in your post happened, how in the 9 hells aren't you offended enough to stand up about it? Sounds more like non-confrontational cowardice to me.

Your sexual orientation is much easier to hide, than your skin colour and ethnicity. They need to grow a thicker skin.

Why should it be hidden any more than your skin colour or ethnicity?

But yeah, it's so much better to live in a world where you need to carry around a tonne of scar tissue and constantly pretend to be something your not in the hopes that someday everyone will just miraculously become nice. /sarcasm

The problem won't fix itself and you and the rest of the 'toughen up princess' crowd aren't helping.
