not for weeaboos

So a friend of mine on YouTube, CDawgVA does voice impressions. He’s a gamer, he’s a weeaboo, he’s Welsh, and he’s one of those people where if you give him respect, he’ll give you respect.

Real cool guy.

So he’s recently been starting up Anime Impressions videos, where he’ll do extremely good, incredibly stupid, or pee-your-pants laughing impressions of characters. This also includes Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji), Tokyo Ghoul, and Yuri on Ice.

This is one of them, and I wanted to give him a bit of a shout-out because he deserves it.

Still interested? Awesome! Here’s a link to his YouTube channel.

how can people cry “FETISHIZATION!!!!” immediately at the fetishization of non-Asian POC but are completely fine with sexualizing k-pop stars all they want, have entire blogs dedicated to shipping them in real life, borderline stalk them into their personal lives, and treat them as if they were gods just because they’re asian as if that doesn’t count as fetishization, too? 

do you not think Asians count as a race that can be fetishized? or is it because “i’M POC TOO!!!!!!!!” as if your experience with oppression means that you can contribute to the oppression of another group? that you’d target another race with the same thing you despise people doing to yourself? or is it because you’ve called yourself a weeaboo/koreaboo so much that it’s lost the original meaning behind the word where it was meant to be a label on people who fetishize asians? that you’ve been contributing to the fetishization of Asians for so long you don’t realize that what you’re doing is fetishization?

just admit you don’t care about the fetishization of Asian people if you pull this sort of thing, at least you can say that you’re honest about it and let people know they should avoid you.
