white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
white people, this is why nobody trusts you
yeah, so white women fetishize, objectify, and commodify woc as well and treat us like props.
this is why we don’t trust you.
In response to your logic, please find attached a picture of Hyuna Kim “fetishizing” and “commodifying” american culture. Yes I know she’s Korean, but J-pop and K-pop are relatively close in style, so don’t be pernickety. This use of other cultures isn’t a one way thing; as far as I know, American culture isn’t only basketball shirts and sunglasses.
Also, your Katy Perry picture is a poor example of the message you’re trying to convey. She, as well as her backing dancers, is in traditional Japanese dress, and there is not a cupcake or submissive sex kitten in sight.
And to add to that, what makes me really angry is that you are complaining about white women being racist and culturally stereotyping women of colour, and your response is what? “This is why nobody trusts you” - racism. Talk about hypocritical, you’re making sweeping statements about the Caucasian population as untrustworthy because a few dumb commercialised bitches in America made some music videos. Get off your high horse, just because you feel victimised by something doesn’t give you the right to do the same to others.
I didn’t want to get involved in this debate, I made a post yesterday and deleted it because I really can’t be bothered to deal with the inevitable backlash, but really this is getting stupid I’ve seen so many posts about it since then and it’s getting on my nerves.
"Yeah she’s Korean, but Korea and Japan are basically the same, right guys??" ….
Katy Perry and her dancers were NOT in “traditional dress”, jesus christ.
They were in sexed up kimonos with thigh-high slits in the sides, and face paint. Her “kimono” (which actually looks more like a cheongsam..) has a chest window! It’s a very poor, sexualised interpretation of geisha.
The fact that anyone would think that is how geisha actually dress shows how influential this type of representation can be. Here’s a photo of a geisha so you can see the difference.
Not to mention in the k-pop picture they don’t have a bunch of Caucasian girls dressed in basketball jerseys dancing around for them. They are just taking the clothes and that particular style of dress. American artists are using Japanese girls, not Japanese fashion, there is a big difference. I’ve had guys tell me they have “yellow fever”, that “Japanese girls get kinky” and a guy even showed me a picture of another Japanese girl in wearing a kitten costume “begging for treats” when I mention that I’m Japanese. People feel they have the right to say some straight up creepy things to me because I am Japanese and this is the image they have of my culture and consequently me.
Also do your research before you want to try and defend pop stars exploiting Japanese girls because Katy Perry is NOWHERE NEAR “TRADITIONAL WEAR.”
but gwen stefani’s harajuku girls were????? a big part of her??? they werent just used once for a shitty video gwen stefani and her girls were tight they were a part of the whole image idk
it doesnt make it okay but i dont think gwen stefani and the harajuku girls are the best example here
OH MY FUCKING GOD WHY DOES THIS ANY OF THIS FUCKING BULLSHIT MATTER?!
IM SORRY IM GOING FULL CAPSLOCK MODE NOW
WE ARE TALKING ABOUT FUCKING DRESSES AND POP STARS BEING OFFENSIVE
GUESS WHAT? THAT’S SORT OF COMMON FOR POP STARS.
THERE ARE PEOPLE DYING AND STARVING AND UNEDUCATED MASSES WHO CAN BARELY COUNT TO 50 BUT WHO ARE ROBBING PEOPLE AT GUNPOINT. OVERPOPULATION HAS CAUSED OUR CARBON DIOXIDE LEVELS TO BE STAGGERINGLY HIGH AND FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICES TO BECOME MORE INEFFICIENT DUE TO THE BUREAUCRACY OF KEEPING TRACK OF NEARLY 8 BILLION PEOPLE. PEOPLE IN THE WEST BANK ARE KILLING EACH OTHER AND TREATING EACH OTHER LIKE FUCKING ANIMALS BECAUSE OF A FUCKING COLLECTION OF HISTORICALLY INACCURATE STORIES WRITTEN SEVERAL MILLENNIA AGO BY THE FUCKS WHO HELPED START THE DARK AGES.
I THINK THAT ALL OF THIS SHIT HOLDS HIGHER PRECEDENCE THAN WHAT SOME RANDOM CHUCKLEFUCK AMERICAN CELEBRITY WEARS. IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT THEN DON’T BUY THEIR SHIT OR PAY ATTENTION TO THEM. MINORITIES MAKE UP 1/3RD OF THE PUBLIC AND 1/3RD OF THE CONSUMER POWER, AND MEDIA CONGLOMERATES WHO LIKE TO MAKE MONEY WILL WANT TO CATER TO ANY CHUNK OF REVENUE THAT LARGE. SO IF YOU ARE ASIAN AMERICAN AND YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS SHIT, THEN DON’T BUY IT, OR SEND A STRONGLY WORDED LETTER, I DON’T CARE. BUT DON’T BLAME THIS SHIT ON EVERY SINGLE WHITE PERSON BECAUSE THAT IS RACISM. IM SORRY TO THE ONE PERSON WHO GOT SENT HENTAI PICS OR WHATEVER, BUT MAYBE IT’S JUST BECAUSE THAT PERSON IS A DOUCHE AND HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR SKIN COLOR OR THESE POP STARS???
FURTHERMORE, IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LIVE IN AN AGE WHERE RACIAL SHIT DOESN’T MATTER, THEN WHY SHOULD IT EVEN MATTER IF WHAT THEY ARE WEARING HAS AN ORIENTAL VIBE. I LIKE INDIAN CULTURE AND AESTHETICS, I THINK IT HAS A NEAT VIBE SO I OWN SOME INDIAN LOOKING SHIT. NOW JUST BECAUSE I DO THAT DOESN’T MEAN IM GOING TO MAKE A BOLLYWOOD MOVIE, OR ASK EVERY INDIAN PERSON I MEET WHAT IT’S LIKE TO HAVE INDIAN GENES. AND SIMILARLY THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING A WEEABOO WHO THINKS JAPAN IS LITERALLY OTAKU HEAVEN AND BEING SOME RANDOM WHITE FUCK WHO LIKES WEARING CUTE DRESSES AND WATCHING ANIME. YEAH AVRIL LAVIGNE’S VIDEO WAS AUTISTIC AS FUCK AND WAS AN ATTEMPT TO PANDER TO WEEABOOS, BUT DOES IT REALLY MATTER? NO. IT REALLY DOESN’T. THIS IS AS FIRST WORLD ANS FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS GET. DOES IT REALLY MEAN THAT WHITE PEOPLE CAN’T READ MANGA OR ATTEMPT TO WEAR ASIAN FASHION? FUCK NO. AND FUCK ANYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE.
tl;dr y’all niggas need to get your priorities straight and learn how context works.
and no hurr durr im not appropriating “nigger”, again, context.Source: petitepasserine

Disneyworld needs to make a rollercoaster based off of the ride Yzma and Kronk take to the lair. When the ride starts, Yzma’s voice yells “pull the lever, Kronk!” and the ride starts to move backwards so she yells “wrong lever!” and it shoots you forward.
WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING?!
