This is how you DON’T apologize. He doesn’t ever even actually apologize at all.

Buble starts by placing the blame on every outraged and upset by his gross misogyny and fetishization by saying we “misinterpreted the message” (of those hashtags? yeah right…)

Moving right along, Buble seems to fit right into our rape culture, as he refused to acknowledge the difference between a “compliment” and harassment.

He let’s us know how this has hurt HIM deeply. What??? The thing HE did has hurt HIM deeply? Or does he mean the fact that his racialized sexism has been found out hurts him? I wouldn’t mind clarification there, myself…

He assures us that he was not brought up to disrespect women, but clearly those hashtags show us he managed to find a way to do it anyway…

He regrets that people found the photo offensive?? How about you regret that you acted ignorantly and offensively…

Your intention doesn’t matter, nor does it let you off the hook.

And that last sentence about what “women are to be” is creepy as fuck. Putting us on pedestals is not seeing us as equals or as human beings. That’s idolizing. And clearly nothing demonstrated from the photo or “apology” shows a shred of respect.

**I cropped the photo with Buble and the woman down to just his captions because I’m sure she didn’t give permission for this to be circulating**

Women who get off to the idea of inserting themselves in gay male sexuality – who get off to invading men’s sexuality in which they are categorically not wanted – are women who sure as hell don’t care very much about consent. Far from it, they are obsessed with the idea of gaining sexual access to men who will always say no.

This is rape culture and the women who gleefully fetishize gay men should be taken out back and shot.

Mixed-race fetishization is an issue that needs way more awareness as it is extremely harmful to all POC. Because there are people who date interracially just so that they can have “pretty mixed babies”. So not only do they fetishize monoracial POC, but they also objectify and sexualize their own offspring and if you don’t think that’s fucked up then I don’t know what to tell you.

I am a latina

I am do not exist to cook, clean and fuck

I am not a thing that spits out words in spanish when you put coins in me

My anger is legitimate, not another thing for you to be turned on by

I am capable of coming in different sizes and colors, do not assume i am not a latina based on my appearance

Not your Gloria from modern family, not your devious maid, not your spicy señorita

Not “spanish”, not “hispanic”

I am me, a human, so treat me as one

hi when i type “chinese women” in the search bar i’d like to see chinese women solidarity and not racial fetishization in porn.

do people not understand this or are people deliberately choosing continue hurting woc:

racial fetishization is an act of violence. it forcefully subjugates woc and objectifies their bodies as sex objects.

“For one thing, there’s Dido’ fetishization by the two Ashford brothers. While one brother sees her simply as an exotic "other” whom he can bed without forming attachments – very different from the attitude toward white women of the same time period, whose virtue was unequivocal and untouchable – the other is downright violent in his conception of Dido, calling her “repulsive” but still expressing a desire to rape her. The scenes in which that older, more violent Ashford brother addresses Dido directly, giving voice to his unbridled racism and at one point assaulting her, are indisputably disturbing, not just because they represent a disgusting and brutal history but because I see remnants of those attitudes today in the way the world perceives the bodies of black and brown women: exotic, sexual, sensual, different objects. We see it in the way Miley Cyrus and almost any given white pop star (Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke, for example) use black women’s bodies as props in music videos: as something to be appropriated and used for one’s own pleasure and then cast off in pursuit of the next trend. In addition, the rape of black women still does not seem to carry much horror in 2014; it was most recently a punchline on Saturday Night Live, and last year Russell Simmons was forced to apologize for his highly offensive “Harriet Tubman Sex Tape.” None of this is too different from the way the Ashford brothers perceive Dido’s body: as an exotic “other” not worthy of love or respect but merely of lust, and lust framed in a particularly problematic racism.“

 Belle: A Lesson in the Timelessness of Racism and Misogyny Against Black Women by Olivia Cole 

The malicious, misogynistic website called Return of Kings is known for writing articles advising western men to seek Asian women for reasons that are racist, and sexist. A lot of these western men claim they’re “emasculated by western women/feminism” and the only way to restore their masculinity is by having sex, dating, marrying and/or dominating a “submissive” Asian woman. This was brilliantly explained in Sunny Woan’s White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory of Asian Feminist Jurisprudence (I advise everyone to read it). 

Anyway, here are their reasons why western men should seek Asian women:

1. Feminine

Asian women have held close all the family values passed on from their mothers and grandmothers before them. Values that tell women to respect their man and be submissive to them. Being feminine is an ancestral cultural characteristic that most Asian women have, one that most western women wrongly interpret as slavery. Asian women have learned to talk softly to their husbands and be submissive to them; they actually HEAR what you have to say, not just pretend and then do what they want.

2. Traditional values

You can expect to eat a meal from the hands of your lovely Asian lady every single day, even if she also has a full-time job and works hard at it. Your house will be spotlessly clean and well-taken care of. Try asking a western woman to cook for you on a daily basis and you’ll probably end up with a bump on your head from the flying ashtray, or with a dreadful sex-starvation week!

3. They willingly play the “wife” role

Asian women are the pillars of the family, managing and organizing the household perfectly, but are smart enough to let you lead and have the reigns of the family. They take care of their children and love helping their husbands any way they can. They do the same for their partners, so even if you have an Asian woman as a girlfriend, you can still taste a slice of heaven in your everyday life. Generally speaking, an Asian woman has been taught she needs to make her husband happy and proud, with his relatives and friends, to have her as his wife, so she does her best to not let you down. 

4. Sexy

Most Asian women are not only family-oriented and respectful towards others. They are also caring and love themselves, too. They will make sacrifices to have a good shape (and maintain it no matter what) and please their man with it. As for their beauty, it seems that western men are particularly attracted by their slender figures (as opposed to the overweight body shapes of the west), shiny black hair, and appealing eyes.

5. Financially responsible

They are usually great money handlers, which is a huge plus when looking for a woman to start a family with. Your Asian wife will ask you each and every time she wants to spend shared money on the house. Try asking an American or European woman to do the same—Her voice will rise to the stratosphere if you try to reign in her shopping. 

6. They behave

Cheating is not an option for an Asian woman. Marriage is too sacred to them to dishonor it like that. 

7. They never refuse to have sex

They never give the cold shoulder to their feeling-horny hubbies. They will still make love with you, even if they are not in the greatest mood for 1000+1 Arabian nights.

8. They adapt quickly

They can act like a Western lady in particular ways without losing their subservient nature.

9. They avoid direct confrontations

They avoid conflicts and arguments with their other half and pursue a harmonious relationship, first and foremost.

People who racially fetishize for the sole purpose of playing genetic build-a-baby need some help.

It’s okay to fall in love with a person and hope your future child inherits some of your lover’s fondest traits, but JFC, don’t just select people based on physicality so you can genetically engineer a person that lives up to your creepy ass racial fantasies. This isn’t a puppy farm.

Fetishization of Lao women. Because we are “valued” for our: 

  • “Exotic” looks.
  • Supposedly traditional values. 
  • Docile and gentle mannerisms.
  • Very good with tasks such as cleaning, child-bearing, etc.
  • Because they think we won’t fight back. 

How can somebody, especially a foreigner (and even Lao men), even try to understand a Lao woman as if she is a special specimen of an animal? Or how Lao women’s bodies (even Lao children) are used for the sex tourism industry, constantly violated and abused? And how half of tourists and expats that arrive in Laos only came for our women since their “American” ladies, etc. are too “unmanageable” and “newfangled”? Are we merely trophy wives? Your sex dolls? Your punching bags? We are not for sale. We are not for your disgusting fantasies
