Found out today the silly idea of “transethnicity” and I must say its pretty ridiculous. Saw that someone declared themselves a transethnic “North Korean” as if 1. there’s a distinction between North and South Koreans (not genetically or linguistically anyway) and 2. they, as a someone definitely not living in North Korea, could possibly comprehend what it means to be a Korean with origins in the northern provinces of Pyeongan. Whats even more ridiculous though is the notion that its just “white people” who live life under the pretenses of another culture. But that’s Tumblr logic for you.
