For a long time, I didn’t know that statements such as, “You speak really good English,” and “But, where are you really from?” had a term – microaggression. Microaggressions are those statements and actions that aren’t physically or verbally threatening, but have subtle, often demeaning, messages behind them. The person behind the action (or statement) doesn’t intentionally say those things to hurt the other people. For example, saying “You speak English beautifully,” to me means that the person who said it probably assumed I was going to have an accent, which assumes that I wasn’t born in the US, that I was a recent immigrant (the “forever foreigner” myth), or something along those lines of assumption. (Sure, I’m making assumptions about people, but, honestly, why else would you tell someone their English is “beautiful”?)
It doesn’t make me feel very good; it’s demeaning and insulting.
I don’t like it when people have Asian fetishes. I don’t like yellow fever, yellow plague - whatever you call it to justify liking only Asian women, it’s disgusting.
It’s not just disgusting on a physical level. You like Asian women based on the premise that we’re “supposed” to be passive, quiet, obedient, and exotic. You like Asian women based only on those few qualities, and without regard to who that woman might actually be.
Am I wrong in these assumptions about most who have Asian fetishes?
I want to watch this, and see what happens.
EDIT: This goes for women who have Asian fetishes, too.
