  • Question: I wouldn't call it yellow fever (bc that's such an offensive phrase) but I have always found Asians generally most attractive. Is it still problematic to hold this opinion? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    okcreepsters:

    I’m going to let the women who are at the receiving end of Asian fetishization handle this. 

    Anna Akana’s “Yellow Fever” video.

    Chin Lu’s “Why Yellow Fever is Different Than Having a Type”

    Lauren Smash’s “Yellow Fever. Dating as an Asian Woman”

    and Debbie Lum’s video series “They’re All So Beautiful”

    I hate that phrase too, but yes, it’s problematic to fetishize an entire race of people. And I’m saying this as a white man married to a Japanese woman.

    Like dark hair? No problem. Like petite women? No problem. “I like Asians” Ugh, stop.

    You’re free to date whoever you want, but the moment you start selecting dates based purely on ethnicity, you’re heading for trouble. You’re relying on stereotypes and letting artificial racial constructions* guide your libido. You’re setting yourself (and your potential partners) up for embarrassment when your preconceptions don’t match reality.

    When I moved to Japan, I met a lot of women in a very short period of time. Some of them were super cool, some of them were terrible, and one of them I married. Aside from a few superficial shared physical traits, all of these women were completely unlike the other women I met. And this is only in one country. Asia* is huge!

    Again, you are totally allowed to select your own dates based on whatever criteria you see fit. But don’t insist that a “race” is “just your type.” Because there’s no difference between favoring one race and rejecting another race.

    *I’m guessing your “Asian” fetish does not include women from, say, Sri Lanka? Bangladesh? Or indigenous peoples like the Ainu? Because those are all Asians, just not the ones who are presented as exotic in Western media.

Mac asked: British Prime Minister and professional shitehawk David Cameron poses with some blackface wearing morris dancers at a local folk festival. Europeans always write in with some bullshit about how they “don’t have the same history of racism” or “you don’t understand what it really means” whenever they do some of their obviously racist bullshit, but one look at these fuckers really drives home the fact that they are some complete garbage. PS. In THE QUEENS BRITAIN, that shit is called “blacking up.” Wild!

Why I Need Diverse Games/About

Why I Need Diverse Games

So, I created this hashtag, #INeedDiverseGames. I did it because I am tired of not seeing myself in the games I have spent many years playing. I am tired of being the trope, the joke, the one that gets fridged early in the game to fuel manpain for the PLOT.

I am also tired of the same.fucking.scruffy.ass.dude protag in 9 out of 10 games released in a given year. I am tired of hero dude saves the world, gets the girl plot lines.

There is more to do in a game, there is more to tell in a game than the same recycled, boring stories over and over. I am sick of FPS games where my only goal is to kill, kill, kill. That gets old after a while. Or not, the FPT market is still kicking after all.

So started that tag after being burned entirely the fuck out on the current offerings. After being disappointed in choices available to me in current games or games yet to come. I created it because I was just done in.

So that’s why it’s there. I’m glad to see it picking up steam and getting lots of retweets and this tumblr getting submissions. However, I do want to remind people what the hashtag is NOT about.

#INeedDiverseGames is not:

  • Some SJW plot to take the boys toys away
  • Some evil SJW plot to undermine the gaming industry and make it listen to me. (If I had that kind of power, I would have used it already)
  • Related to GamerGate. (I am still floored at how anyone made that leap of illogic, but whatever)
  • Created by GamerGate people
  • Some feminist gamer illuminati plot ala point #2. (Cause if it is, sign me up!)

As a reminder:

This tag wasn’t trending long before it got picked up by trolls, reddit and gamergate folks. So tread carefully in that tag when you wade in.

my favorite one of the bunch (from a friend, so BIAS)
