    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.

    gynocraticgrrl:

    Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

    (Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

    smashsurvey:

    Now think of how many of those female characters and protagonists are oversexed, created for the male gaze, or put in an inactive damsel role for the plot of the game. Representation matters. A Study last year proved that exposure to tv shows increased the self esteem of young white boys and markedly decreased the confidence and self esteem of girls across the board (and we haven’t even started on the representation of characters of color and the effect it has on children’s self perception). 

    Video games are a different media, and even more concerning if representation metrics are changing how our kids think of themselves. Especially knowing that 67% of American Households have video game consoles and 91% of Children play video games regularly,how do you think the portrayal (and lack of portrayals) of women and girls in these games is affecting little girls – or influencing how little boys view their importance and/or influence over them? 

    Comics. Movies. Lit. Pop Culture. The Smash Survey is an upcoming podcast project that will critically explore the representation of race, gender, and queer identity in media and pop culture in a fun and engaging format.

“I don’t want people to like her anymore, almost, that sounds really, really bad.I want people to realize that actually she’s not the same anymore. You can’t root for her forever, because she’s not there to be your favorite character. That’s not what she’s there for. She’s real. People go down bad paths and they make bad decisions, but it’s always justified in their head. I want the audience to differentiate that and not just be like, ‘Oh, it’s Arya, we love her.’ Because actually look at what Arya’s doing. She’s being eaten away from the inside out, and she’s not stopping it.” - about Arya
