It has the largest polynesian-populated city in the world, it has a wonderful indigenous culture and its population is comprised of a collection of different races from the various kinds of people who migrated here.
So…you know. Just because Peter Jackson films a load of people with west-country accents doesn’t actually mean we are all like that.
Do you ever feel like the rest of the world forgets that the South Pacific even exists? Coz I often do. Like when you read stuff that’s all ‘resist colonialism in Asia, Africa and Latin America’ and the Pacific guys, the Pacific got colonised too.

I am extremely, EXTREMELY tired of “real men have beards”/“real women have curves” posts and any variant of them.
You know what “real” people ought to have? Respect for other people regardless of gender identity/presentation, body type, and grooming choices.

yoooo this is important
