How to write a FILIPINO (from Manila), by Noelle (and Tristan)

So, the lack of guides on how to write filipinos saddened me, so I took up the task of creating one myself. Just know that this will be based off of my own (and my friend’s) observations living as a Filipino who has lived in Manila and a few locations outside it, and it will not apply to all Filipinos.
It will include key terms, common filipino words and phrases, an overview on the Philippines as a culture and as a people, Manila, as well as stereotypes surrounding the Filipino character.
*Just saying, I wrote this for three hours straight and I got a headache two hours into it. Any mistakes may be messaged to me so I can remove them. Thanks~

 A GUIDE ON ETHNICITIES IN ROLEPLAY
I got a lot of anons today about how siblings in rps do not need to be of the same ethnicity. I got a similar amount of anons arguing that they should. So I decided to do this guide to explain how important it is that ethnicities are represented correctly in roleplays. In this guide I’ve gathered all the information I can find from both other roleplayers and my own mind in order to keep things as unbiased as possible. I also gathered other statistics and things to lend a hand. 
Disclaimer: I’ve decided to leave everyone as anonymous. I will answer any questions you have. I am not all-knowing; if I make mistakes let me know so I can fix them. There are a few images in here as well as a lot of text. 
So lets get started:

Okay, I know it’s been done before, but I’ve found these guides always seem to leave the smaller yet extremely important details out. This is rather long, but it’s been broken up into sections so you can skip what you already know. A like or reblog would be nice if you found this helpful!

Gender 101: What is Gender Expression?

thetrolliestcritic:

Gender identity is the gender that someone identifies as; female, male, bigender, agender, etc. Gender expression is an external manifestation of how someone expresses their gender, and is often an extension of their gender identity; usually expressed through ‘feminine’, ‘masculine’, or gender-variant behavior, clothing, haircut, voice, or body characteristics. Just about everyone expresses gender, or is perceived as expressing gender. Some people express gender based on what they identify as, while others do not or can not. Gender expression does not dictate or tell someone’s gender identity

Some of you probably already use these three tags, but since they’re still not widely in use, I thought it would be a good idea to make a post about them to spread the word. These tags are a way to have your artwork (whether it’s gifs, graphics, picspams, or fanart) be seen by more people and a way for you to track other people’s artwork if you’re interested in either of these three categories. If you don’t already do so, you should tag your work with #fairytaleedit, #mythologyedit, or #historyedit. Let’s make these tags official! 

Please reblog to spread the word!
