Racial fetishization is a form of racism. It’s degrading and invasive whenever anyone makes assumptions about what women like sexually, especially when those assumptions are that we enjoy being submissive and subservient. East Asian women are the most sexually trafficked population, and the demand driving that industry largely comes from white men who believe those women are inclined to enjoy sexual slavery. The stereotypes need to end, and our personhood needs to be recognized. We’re not Lotus Blossoms, we’re not Dragon Ladies, we’re not one-dimensional, and we don’t exist to stroke your egos. Trust me, while you’re fantasizing about turning us into playthings, we’re fantasizing about beating the shit out of you.  Stop fetishizing us.
