Inviting people in
As Tammy and Matt agree, we’re always ohana at the Puakea home. December 2006
“I allow my fear of embarrassment to stop me from hostessing anyone. I tell myself it’s fine, it’s just not ‘my thing,’ but I actually think that’s a weak excuse. Because there are things we should do, regardless of whether they are our favorite ‘things’ or not…I think inviting people into your home, whether it’s an…

I had a sad moment at circle of friends
CoF is a club at school to hang out with people, mainly to help mentally disabled folk get more friends.
I was sitting next to Adam as usual and a new kid came that I hadn’t seen before.
She said her name and I hadn’t quite heard her so I asked her to repeat it.
She said her name again, Amira. I said cool and gave the body’s name. Then told her that I’m really sorry if I forget her name and have to ask for it again at some point.
And she said “yeah I know it’s weird and hard to remember”
So I said “no no no it’s not that, I’m just a really bad at names. Someone could be like ‘hi my name is bob’ and the next day I’d be like ‘hiiiiii..... what was your name again?’”
It saddens me that so many people with “weird” (aka not white) names have to apologize for having their names. Not to mention that it’s usually POC that go through this, as if they don’t already have enough shit to deal with.
I always always always do my best to pronounce everyone’s name even if it’s a difficult one for me.
It really pisses me off that some people don’t even try and are just like “can I call you X instead?”
Do white people seriously think it’s such an inconvenience to literally try to pronounce someone’s fucking name??
It’s similar to the people that are like “well I’m not gonna call you X because I’ve been calling you Y for so long!!” Or the people that are like “but they/them pronouns are soooo hard”
But it’s so much worse for people with “difficult” names. No one even tries
(Also any cishet white guys I’m not attacking you, please don’t get pissy at me for stating facts)
I’m not super educated on this matter, being mega white and all, so @mangodid do you wanna chime in?
