what does dragon lady mean?
A reply from angrywocunited

Dragon Lady is a detrimental stereotype depicting East Asian women as strong, deceitful, domineering or mysterious. Movies from the early century have portrayed this stereotypical version of the Asian woman. The Dragon Lady has the power to hypnotize her male rivals, gains trust by seducing them, and when they least expect it, she rids of them through sabotage or backstabbing. One of my favorite actresses, Anna May Wongwas remembered for the stereotypical portrayal of the “Dragon Lady”. -G

See also: The main reason why people can’t believe that Lucy Liu can play a “warm” character like Watson. (The racism behind the archetype, I mean, and then the archetype. Kinda in that order, since the first is why she’s so often cast in that role.)

^ this as well.

Also, I did some research and the Dragon Lady stereotype is not limited to just Asian-American women, it can also be associated with women of other races. For example, De’Londa Brice from the television series The Wire was labeled a “Dragon Lady” by the character Bodie, and Meryl Streep's character Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada was called a “Dragon Lady” throughout the film. The term is applied to powerful Asian women but at times it’s also used to describe women who are powerful, cold-hearted, manipulative, mysterious, sadistic etc.

Okay guys this is kinda important. GQ just came in the mail and for the first time in a long while it had a really important article…

I just sat here for like the last half hour reading this and I’m incredibly appalled at our justice system in regards to the military. The article interviews about 23 men who have all been sexually assaulted in some branch of the military. The PTSD from sexual assault in the military is more prevalent than PTSD from combat…

If you have a chance I suggest reading this article…and the title is a quote that one of the victims Doctor told him…

Hey guys! I’m very impressed and extremely happy to see this post gaining a lot of speed over the last few days! A few people have requested it, so i’ve gone ahead and scanned the pages of the article for those who want to read it, to read. 

So, here it is!

"The ‘victim’ approach to the study of white women in the slave formation, therefore, has severe limitations… while white males were the predominant owners of slaves in the plantation sector, the same cannot be said for the urban sector. White women were generally the owners of small properties, rather than large estates, but their small properties were more proportionately stocked with slaves than the large, male owned properties.

In 1815, white women owned about 24 percent of the slaves in St Lucia; 12 per cent of the slaves on properties of more than 50 slaves, and 48 per cent of the properties with less than 10 slaves. In Barbados in 1817, less than five of the holdings of 50 slaves or more were owned by white women, but they owned 40 percent of the properties with less than 10 slaves…

White women also owned more female slaves than male slaves. The extensive female ownership of slaves in the towns was matched by the unusually high proportion of females in the slave population; female slave owners owned more female slaves than male slave owners….

From these data the image that emerges of the white female slaveowner is that she was generally urban, in possession of less than ten slaves, the majority of whom were female. That female slaveowners generally owned female slaves, indicates the nature of enterprises, and hence labour regimes, managed and owned by white women. It is reasonable, then, to argue that any conceptualization of urban slavery, especially with reference to the experiences of enslaved black women, should proceed with an explicit articulation of white women are principal slaveowners.

Why are east Asian women really hypersexualized in western countries? When did this start and is it more present in North America compared to Europe or is it the same? Also, do you think that all woc are hypersexualized to the same extent or do certain woc experience it more than others? Thanks.
A reply from angrywocunited

Sunny Woan, the author of White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory on Asian Feminist Jurisprudence, stated white sexual imperialism, through rape and war, created the hyper-sexualized stereotype of Asian women. This stereotype in turn fostered the over-prevalence of Asian women in pornography, the mail-order bride phenomenon, the Asian fetish syndrome, and worst of all, sexual violence against Asian women. The hyper-sexualization of Asian women is universal, not exclusively in North America and Europe. Woc are hyper-sexualized to the same extent but hyper-sexualized differently. For example, Animalistic black woman, Submissive Asian woman, Spicy, fiery Latina, Exotic Native woman etc. -G

Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.
Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.
Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot. (x)
Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy
