to all well-meaning ‘liberals’: pls stop attaching ‘istan’ to ur own messed up countries/states/cities in order to make a point about misogyny or violence. pakistan and afghanistan, countries that u drone and brutalize, are not available for light-hearted banter involving otherization. and central asian countries, such as kazakhstan or uzbekistan, don’t exist to be ur lame punch lines. get over yourselves pls. thank u.
