my interest in these things isn’t rooted in sexual attraction ok. just because you’re curious about something doesn’t mean you want to fuck it. you like cartoon beaver girls but does that mean you’re sexually attracted to them? oh no, oh wait
that moment when one friend in the group who does track starts explaining how runners will strain their heads forward and run with their arms held back in the last moment of the race and all anyone else can think of is
hi there! with the recent Oscars and all and how empowering Lupita has been for black women and girls - i hope i don't sound selfish- but I've been feeling a bit down about the asian representation, specifically east asian. Being asian and a lover of acting it makes me hate being asian a lot and I guess I wanted to ask what you're stance is on with asians being represented in media? We're always so stereotypical.
Asian people are underrepresented, misrepresented, homogenized, portrayed uni-dimensionally, often not given fair dynamic story lines, not given lead roles, not given credit for their talent in lead roles or supporting roles in the rare occasion that they are, etc. There are blogs for and by Asian peoples explaining it better than me with in depth detail on the history, context, and significance to Asian people though. I’m not tryna overstep my boundaries. I don’t know why my stance on it would matter to you because obviously as someone against racism and exclusion my stance is that it’s fucked up, disgusting, unfair and exclusive. I agree with you on anything you feel about it, of course. The consequence is people having low self esteem (studies show) linked to not seeing themselves and when seeing themselves they’re portrayed not as multi-dimensionally as white people. No one should have a stance on something like this because the answer, though critically it could be examined many ways, is that lack of representation for Asian people is absolutely bad. That should be the universal notion imo… Representation for Asian people is inadequate. I don’t know what else to say lol the evidence is pretty horrifyingly representative for itself. I think that something horrible and racist and unfair is horrible racist and unfair.
