This is not about an actress of color, but please vote against David O. Russell being included in #TIME100. If you are unaware, he admitted to sexually assaulting his transgender niece, and does not deserve any sort of praise or recognition. Reblog to spread the word!

.The subject matter of that second link is obvious from the text, but be advised, it is a very detailed account of physical violation of a type and context that many trans women will have direct experience with. I feel physically ill and very anxious—as one does when one is an unsafe environment—having read it. Proceed with caution.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR POINTING THIS OUT UGH

I WAS UNAWARE OF THIS
PEOPLE SHOULD BE AWARE OF THINGS LIKE THIS
STOP LETTING WHITE GUYS GET AWAY WITH EVERYTHING BECAUSE YOU LIKE THEIR MOVIES

Dear Non-Asian People: Yes, fetishizing Asian people is racist.

lightspeedsound:

Apparently, this is still being debated. But let me outline it for you again:

1.  There’s a history of making “Asians” (as in, “people with dark hair, almond shaped eyes, whose ethnic background comes from one bigass continent) into one homogenous group. This is super racist, because, let’s be real here: despite what you learned in 7th grade geography, Asia is a big ass and diverse CONTINENT. NOT. A. COUNTRY.

2. In fact, if we want to be technical here, “Asia” includes parts of Russia and Turkey. Two countries which are definitely not grouped with the traditional “Asian” category. Why? Because they don’t look like a stereotypical Asian. And also, South east Asians (i.e.: Indians and other desi people) are considered Asian as well. Only, they’re distinguished and not what people automatically think of when they say “Asian.”  Sort of like how Eastern Europeans are considered Europeans but also somehow not. 

3. And while we’re on the topic, what are you fetishizing here? Because, as an Asian woman, I’ve heard really fucking racist/stereotyping “compliments” around three things: 

  • my eyes
  • my skin
  • my hair

And to be frank, saying “Oh hey, I love your eyes. They are so exotic” is no better (and actually, arguably, historically and politically more offensive) than a cis-gendered dude saying “Oh hey, I love your tits. They’re so womanly.” Because, bitch, who are you to define what “womanly” means? 

4. So then there’s also the ideology surrounding Asians and Asian fetishes.  For women, it’s all about “Oh, how submissive and light skinned and exotic, like having my own geisha kung fu princess jasmine harem girl all in one!”  Which is absolutely fucking ridiculous because it is like saying, “Oh yay, I get my own spicy señorita french kissing german milkmaid swedish model all in one!” Bitch. We. Be. Different. 

5. And also, let’s be real here: If your “fascination with Asian culture” basically means “I watch a lot of anime and masturbate to hentai and wish I I had a cute schoolgirl/effeminate school boy of my own to tie up,” you don’t have a fascination with Asian culture. I mean, for one, there IS NO homogenous Asian culture. For two, even if there was, there is no way that fucking Sailor Moon would be a cultural relic of said ethnic group. I am sorry, it is hilarious, but there is no way you can tell me that it’s somehow a gateway into the mysterious and exotic world of the Orient. 

6. That last sentence was sarcasm, by the way. Never ever use any of the adjectives I just listed above unless you want to get bitchslapped. No, not roundhouse kicked. We Asians reserve that shit for bigger issues.

7.  And Asian culture isn’t just sushi or kung pao chicken or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Like I said, saying “Asian Culture” is like saying “European culture.” What the fuck does that even mean?  Then again, maybe this is a bad analogy for Americans. I’m pretty sure that we’ve been conditioned to believe that every single European ever will speak fluent English in a French or British accent. Always. 

8.  That being said: fetishization is objectification.  It’s putting an ENTIRE ETHNIC GROUP (which, by the way, shouldn’t even be grouped together in the first place because IT REPRESENTS A HUGE ASS CONTINENT OF DIVERSE PEOPLE WITH DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS) into one tiny little box and saying, “I like you because of my preconceived notions about what your culture and appearance should be.  I find it sexually exciting that you have a list of characteristics which are not only inaccurate, but also steeped in racism and oppression.”  

…So, long story short: Even if you think you’re flattering me, if you have an Asian fetish, YOU. ARE. BEING. RACIST.

If you are not part of said ethnic group: there is no such thing as a positive racial stereotype.

i bet none of you know about the shooting in the jewish community center in kansas today on the eve of passover

another story on the matter

Not to mention the shooter was heard yelling “heil Hitler” and CNN had the nerve to claim the shooter’s motive was “unclear”

i cant wait for people to classify it as a mental issue and not blatant nazism ahaaaa

apocalypsecanceled:

why do white feminists think ‘BUT WE NEED MORE LEADING WOMEN IN THE ACTION GENRE’ is a good excuse to watch lucy do they honestly believe hollywhite just completely missed GRAVITY and the ENTIRE MOTHERFUCKING HUNGER GAMES FRANCHISE what do they think the funding for ‘lucy’ is coming in the wake of?

they boycott pacific rim (which, yknow, had a japanese woman shoving some of hollywhite’s most racist & sexist tropes so far back up its own ass it was still tasting them the week after) for not passing the bechdel test but blatant violence and racism, well that can slide, that’s great representation, that’s empowering for women.
