What is ALAG?

In short:



Angry Little Asian Girl

There are many of us. We are angry. Watch out. We may rip your head off. Some of us are even angrier than Angry Asian Men.

Don't be tricked by "little" and "girl." We only claim those terms in subversive post-colonial mimcry. So back the fuck off.

Do you get Budget Living magazine? I happened to see the book 'Angry Little Girls' in it and wondered if that's where you ran across this.

No, a friend of mine introduced me to the website (on my sidebar) years ago. I actually liked it better before it went "multi-cultural."

The sex which is not-one speaks between the cracks of language offering up an identity that is less than one and double.

"Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."

Is a PAG (Perfect Asian Girl) still a PAG if she becomes an APAG? Or does she transcend her own PAGgy nature and become something more complex, and thus actuating her true PAGginess (without the rich scent of irony)?

PAGs don't become ALAGs. They're too P. At least, that's what I think, not being a PAG. There may be ALAGs that seem like PAGs, but the illusion fades once they've ripped your head off for calling them a PAG.
