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.
They took down the Hello Kitty video from YouTube but you can watch it here if you want to cringe and fume for three minutes.
Also I hate people going around and saying that if we don’t want to be dehumanized or appropriated, then don’t take the job.
Uh. If someone turns down the chance to be in an artist’s music video, they’ll easily replace her and she’ll be known to be a difficult person to work with. It’s tough enough for WoC in this industry, so they’re not in a position to bargain or stand up for themselves cause to Hollywood, they’re disposable.
So instead of being so simple-minded and saying for everyone to just “stop taking offensive jobs”, get angry at those who think it’s okay to use People of Color as props.
We’re not for display.
We’re not your accessories.
Go fuck yourself.
So my friend came into school one day wearing a dress that had straps and the vice principal came up to her and said “You need to either change or cover your shoulders up because it’ll distract the boys” to which she replied “Well I find boys faces distracting, do they have to cover them up?” and the vice principal said “Maybe you should focus in class more.”
If that doesn’t tell you that things are messed up, then I don’t know what does.
Ke$ha is a perfect example of how the media loves to make intelligent girls seem dumb and bitchy even though they are actually smart and caring. Ke$ha isn’t far from being a feminist icon but the media continues to label her as a dumb drunk party girl.
and Ke$ha is all for loving yourself and equality but she continues to receive harassment from mainstream media. Enough harassment to the point that she developed an eating disorder because of it. She is an example of how horrible and sexist the music industry is.
