You’re also a racist. Or would you not mind if I pulled at the corner of my eyes and called myself Asian?
isn’t that the point though? east asian people having “slanty eyes” as a stereotype is fairly widespread, and she’s satirising that by effectively reversing it to show how stupid that particular trope is.
i hadn’t considered it from that angle. however, i’ve also seen responses to this for her where she goes on to mock others further, so
im not too sure about her
besides, two wrongs dont make a right
yeah, but i mean, this was probably a post she made in, what, five seconds? and then to blow up and get 120 odd thousand notes, there’s probably a lot of stupid comments in there (because this is tumblr), so it must be pretty annoying for her, so i can get why she would perhaps lash out in some responses.
plus she’s got a picture of a dog in sunglasses on her blog, so she’s cool people as far as i’m concerned.
I think the difference between this girl mocking white people and a white person mocking Asian people is that Asian people experience this sort of thing all the time. Racism is institutionalised. ‘White people’ on a whole have it so much easier than other races because the system is white washed.
I feel like people are only getting in a huff about it because they can’t do the same thing, I doubt they’re actually offended. When an white person pulls the corners of their eyes and laughs they turn Asian people into caricatures, and sadly in the eyes of ‘white society’ minorities are often seen as caricatures, as a product of their ethnicity, rather than as a person. There are so many connotations that go with white people pulling their eyes but there are none with what she’s doing, so why would that be offensive? The fact that we all know the white version of this while what she’s doing is novel and surprising should really speak for itself.
