Thick Dumpling Skin


A vibrant community for Asian-Americans to share and discuss our unhealthy quest, past and present, for the "perfect" body. Our struggles with food & body image are not merely about will power - they're social, cultural, and familial.

S.I.P Blog: "Privileged UCSD Students Say the Darndest Things" 


James Small, one of the Diversity Peer Educators at the Cross-Cultural Center is starting a blog for his self-initiated project, called "Privileged UCSD Students Say the Darndest Things." It's meant to call out unacknowledged privileges, especially those that James himself has and thus struggles to check (white, upper class, male, cisgendered, able-bodied, etc.) but nothing is off-limits. Please follow it, re-post entries, make comments (including calling James out in whatever he ends up perpetuating), and discuss! It can be found at:
