My mom recently wrote a letter to the editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer and it got published in the Sunday edition! I've been reluctant to blog about "Tiger Mom," though I do want to say that though she sounds obviously quite extreme (and some of that is played up as a writing technique which I find effective and hilarious), I think she does make some interesting points towards the end of the Washington Post piece.
about this blog
A place where I can write my thoughts on race, on privilege, on class, on being a doctor. Part of the endless struggle to become a little bit more enlightened and feel a little less alienated.
Agree with me. Call me out. Pass it on.
I post once or twice a month with smaller comments on mini-blog.
My name is Jess. In the interest of full disclosure: I'm a 30-something-year-old Chinese American and believer that the quest for social justice and equity must be an intentional and active one. I'm a Family Medicine physician. I'm queer. I'm a radical. I grew up in a mostly white suburb and my parents are white-collar workers. And I don't eat meat, but I miss it sometimes.
