Re: Loathsome Hipster Asian Fetish

Was the American girl white or Japanese? If she was white, I would've laughed at her wording -- "known to be submissive"? Ha. White people can be such white knights.

I really don't get why Jezebel racialized the whole thing, but it is true that Asian women are often sexualized and seen as being "meek" -- there's tons of Asian porn out there which exploit women using wording like "exotic", "quiet" and "lotus blossom pussy (lifted from a site verbatum, lol)", and they have been shown as being such in film and literature as well. I hate linking to Wikipedia but you can check out the sources

Re: Loathsome Hipster Asian Fetish

Yes, she was white. And taking a course in feminist studies. Part of why I found her comment so bizarre/ridiculous. I crept out of the conversation when she began peppering her arguments with 'fuck'. I didn't want her getting too upset; it was her birthday.

Thanks for the link. Interesting, rather troubling stuff. (lotus blossom pussy??)
