hi, so, uh

I assume a lot of people are hailing joan rivers as a feminist icon mainly because she opened comedy up to women through her standup

but, uh, unsurprisingly she was not the first to do that

This is a map of Asia. North Americans, you may notice this map is not solely comprised of Japan, Korea, China and Thailand. People in the UK, you may notice India is not  a continent. That is, if those of you who generalize entire continents can even pinpoint India on a map. 
Indians are Asian, gasp! And not all brown skinned people are Indian, also, gasp! There are an alarming amount of people, of all ages, from all backgrounds, who seem to be unable to process this.
I’m ethnically Asian. Since Asia is an extremely large continent, I could be from any number of countries. I am neither from India, China, Korea, Japan or Pakistan, yet not so surprisingly, I am still Asian. 
Yes, there are commonalities across regions, through the conflation of cultures, colonialism, globalization, transnationalism and movement of diasporas. Sometimes these are all the same thing. Rickshaws, rice and curry can be found across the continent.
But let’s not overgeneralize. You can also find Buddhists, Catholics, Muslims and Hindus across Asia. Cantonese Speaking Chinese Muslims! English Speaking Indian Jews! 
No, we are not all the same. Orientalism? (Please look up Edward Said for basic concepts) No thank you. 
So let’s not use umbrella terms, regarding Asians as a monolith while simultaneously denying the regional identity of millions of people- and how about we also not engage in xenophobia? 
Are you someone that thinks this way? Shame on you! You should perhaps invest in buying a map, and take a look at what countries are you know, where. 
Geography, people. It’s important. 

This pops up on my dash every so often. I reblog it again, not just because I wrote it, but because nothing has changed since I first posted this.

Can we just say Northeast Asian for “Eastern Asia” though? For me that’s what I identify as and secondly, it feels strange to have a Southeast Asia when there is no Northeast Asia and it feels like we’re putting the Northeastern countries as the center of Eastern Asia. 

While this is very true and needs to be said, there is one issue with OPs initial argument: While India is not a continent, it is considered a sub-continent.  While its people are culturally and ethnically considered Asian due to cultural similarities and association, the landmass itself is part of a different tectonic plate, one which is slowly colliding with its northern neighbor which has resulted in the expansive and expanding mountain range known as the Himalayas.


I don’t understand the point of your response. India is huge, yes, but it’s not a continent. Subcontinent or not. The tectonic plates are still there. They have been adjacent to the rest of Asia for sometime now. And the countries nearby aren’t even on the same tectonic plate.Bangladesh for example, is on the junction of several tectonic plates. So is Pakistan. The people didn’t all just wander over from India. If you’re going to talk geographic migration, that’s a whole other conversation.But back to the plates. 90 million years ago the Indian plate split from “Madagascar.” Since you know, South America, Africa, Australia and New Zealand were part of “Gondwana.” Is that relevant too? India is in Asia. The end.
Edit: if we’re going the lineage route, which is really not what I intended because phrenology, the kind most of you are thinking of, is bullshit, humans keep moving and we still really know nothing. 
However if you are interested in learning more about early migration, and MtDNA, it’s always…interesting.
“MtDNA mutates at a certain predictable rate - it’s like a clock ticking, but with the clock recording every tick. So it’s possible to judge when distant populations originally diverged, based on how different the mtDNA they have today is. If a group of people splits up, some going east and some going west, mtDNA mutations found in the east but not the west likely originated after the group diverged. Count up the mutations and - knowing the rate at which they would have occurred - you can figure out when the family tree branched off. “You literally have a genetic clock,” explained Douglas Wallace, a professor of molecular medicine at the University of California, Irvine.
Scientists categorize mtDNA into a number of so-called haplogroups, based on their similarities and differences. You can think of them as like blood types - they don’t affect the way you live, but they can be identified at the molecular level.”
Just one Asian origin theory, based on still emerging genetic findings:
"According to this theory, anatomically modern humans carrying ancestral haplogroup L3 lineages were involved in the Out of Africa migration from East Africa into Asia. Somewhere in Asia, the ancestral L3 lineages gave rise to haplogroups M and N. The ancestral L3 lineages were then lost by genetic drift as they are infrequent outside Africa. The hypothesis of Asia as the place of origin of macrohaplogroup M is supported by the following:
The highest frequencies worldwide of macrohaplogroup M are observed in Asia, specifically in Bangladesh, India, Japan, Nepal, and Tibet, where frequencies range from 60%-80%. The total frequency of M subclades is even higher in some populations of Siberia or the Americas, but these small populations tend to exhibit strong genetic drift effects, and often their geographical neighbors exhibit very different frequencies”
There are several theories borne from following Haplogroup M (mtDNA). For your curiosity and open mind.

TLDR tectonic plates and even our genetic DNA doesn’t mean anything terms of what I’m speaking about
Summarize x2: India is in Asia. The end.
