Can We Talk About Non-Asian People Using The Term "Chink Eyes" Because It's Time

'Cause my eyes sure do look tired. Of your shit.

HEY. You out there. Out there in the Snapchat-Insta-Twitter-FB-sphere. We need to talk.

...About a kind of liberty you take captioning your selfies:

About a kind of impulse to describe the way your eyes look:

About feeling real cute swapping nicknames like:

Y'know, that thing that comes so naturally to some folks when their eyes are squinting or smiling or smizing juuuuust enough for them to exoticize and feel really good doing it:

The same thing and term that people in real life get demoralized by and reduced to. Just pickin' up some pizza.

Makin' a coffee run.

Existing.

Because as innocent as non-Asian people might be tempted to play it off, "chink" or "chinky" eyes is a — you guessed it! — derogatory term.

AND SO UNINSPIRED.

IF YOU JUST CAN'T HELP YOURSELF, DUST OFF YOUR LIBRARY CARD AND CHECK OUT A THESAURUS.

Please. Realize, real eyes, real lies the term "chink eyes" is at worst offensive and at best really fucking boring.
