“You Know What I Say About Men Who F--- Asian Women?”
When white women hypersexualize Asian women onscreen, we suffer the consequences.

“When I think of how to eradicate this phenomenon, the word that comes to mind is consent. I was born into this world with these lies alive and well, yet I never consented to them. How many more generations of Asian women will be damned before they’re even born, seen first and foremost as a type in someone else’s story? Why is our humanity seen as something to be earned, as Tiffany’s awkwardly is in Senior Year, rather than as a given? And when will Asian actresses finally have access to roles that respect their talent rather than waste it?”Posted on 2022-06-20T07:23:18+0000
