Anonymous said: I don't understand why White people or people believe that Asian fetishization is good and should be seen as a compliment. People who fetishize Asians don't even see their partners as human beings. I've dated a boy who had a "thing" for Asians. He expected me to act like what he believed the stereotypical Asian woman would act, in fact he had projected that view onto me. He hated it when I voiced my opinions, he hated it when I didn't act like his quiet and submissive Asian girl.
Because “like wow even tho you’re not white i would still bang you!! No, i mean it in a good way!!!”
ladies don’t date white boys love yaselves
and the reason why they think it’s a compliment is that it’s a set of assumptions that plays into white supremacy. it’s easier to not see yourself as an oppressor if you believe that the oppressed actually want it (which sounds like the rationale for another crime, but i don’t have the energy to fully extrapolate that here).
