Storyboard Text

  • Am I overreacting?
  • Babarra Chinese
  • Misha, I know you love Chinese food a lot, do you feel hard to use chopsticks while eating?
  • Not too bad, but some of my friends feel hard and complain about it.
  • James Portuguese
  • Misha Bulgarian
  • I knew how to use them before I came.
  • I don't think people need to learn how to use cutlery
  • Babarra, have you learned how to use cutlery before came to the UK?
  • James is othering me because I am from Asia but he and Misha are from western. He excluded me from the group.
  • Due to globalisation, western people drink tea as well as eastern drink coffee. I don't think people should learn these kinds of stuff intentionally.
  • I asked Misha if it is hard to use chopsticks because they aren't mainstream cutlery in the western. Also, I feel they are hard to control if people not familiar with them, even some of my Chinese friends not adept at using.
  • I haven't assumed Misha don't know how to use chopsticks, so I only asked how did she feel. I don't think I was othering people. Also, Misha's response was light and friendly. We both consider it was casual chat.
  • However, James assumes that people not from western have to learn how to use cutlery before they came to western country (e.g. the UK). The assumption indeed aggrandises divergence and draw a boundary between eastern and western.
  • Why did he ask this question? Did he feel offended?
  • Is she othering us? I have to say something as retaliation!
