How the West Dangerously Portrays Asian Women as Exotic Sex Objects VIDEO

In popular culture, Asian women are reduced down to damaging sexualized stereotypes — exotic, seductive, subservient, controllable, and meek. The sexist and racist mentality of the Western society disproportionately and constantly targets the Asian women as sex objects with their individuality completely dismissed.

No. It’s because most men are into their skin color, not really into them. Does the sexist stereotype damage the dating prospects of Asian women? 

Yes. The complexities of desire, sexual politics of interracial dating, objectification and fetishization have affected the way Asian women are perceived by others. In the United States, up to 61% of Asian women experience physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner during her lifetime.

Well, the Asian women are more than their gender, race or skin color. They are more than a sexual servant or a sexual adventure. Asian women are NOT exotic commodities or ornamental dolls.  However, how did Asian women get the hypersexualized stereotypes, and why is it time to fight the sexist stereotype about the women from the East? Rachel Kuo writes for Everyday Feminism:

“The objectification and fetishization of Asian women comes out of devastating wars and exclusionary immigration practices that get re-transcribed by books, movies, and other mass-consumed media. While some folks might think that these sexual stereotypes are a “compliment” or “positive”, the ongoing violence perpetrated against Asian women as a direct result of these stereotypes get overlooked.
“Objectification is about being seen as less than human. As unworthy of anything else but a singular use and function. Asian and Asian American women continue to be objectified sexually through cultural consumption and misrepresentation in ways that also have negative day-to-day impacts, from commuting to dating.”
