anonymous asked:

a while back i got into an argument w a popular s/u artist (who i think deleted their blog soon after fr other reasons?) bc i was talking abt the fetishization and disrespect to east asian culture in su (use of japanese culture in promos when no e asian characters existed: white coded charas in japanese school uniforms) and the artist literally defended it with 'hillary loves japan!!!" and like.... im still Mad about it tbh oh my god someone actually made me read that

yeah that’s an awful defense yikes. not to mention there’s a bunch of gratuitous japanese and random anime-related references/heavily japanese-influenced visuals in the show, so…yeah trivialization/fetishization of east asian culture is a problem, buddy
