* I’m in there with my rant
about the right to call myself Oriental (in brief: because it’s a politically neutral term in Europe, this is what I’ve grown up calling himself, this is what my family/friends call ourselves) and a threat to give any white person who thinks they have the right to choose my terms for me a good, hard kick in the teeth.
