The fetishization of Asian women leads to sexual violence:

  • Michael Lohman, a third-year doctoral student at Princeton University, cut locks of hair from at least nine Asian women and poured his urine and semen into the drinks of Asian women more than 50 times in Princeton’s graduate student dining hall. When investigators searched Lohman’s apartment, which he shared with his Asian wife, they found stolen women’s underwear and mittens containing the hairs of Asian women, which they believe Lohman used to masturbate. The university failed to acknowledge that Lohman’s victims were Asian women. Yin Ling Leung, organizational director of the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), agreed that the University misidentified the problem. Leung argued that the Asian fetish syndrome triggered Lohman’s behavior. “Sexual assault of Asian women on college campuses is a major issue. You get a room of five Asian American women together, and they all have stories about sexual harassment. Mainstream America shrugs off the notion of Asian fetishes, believing men who have such fetishes “are harmless.”
  • David Dailey and Edmund “Eddie” Ball abducted, handcuffed, and blindfolded two Japanese schoolgirls, ages 18 and 19, in Spokane, Washington. The two girls were taken to a house and raped repeatedly over a span of 7 hours. Eddie Ball, the mastermind behind the crime, professed an avid fascination in bondage, sadomasochism and Japanese culture. He collected Japanese bondage videos and was an expert in Japanese rope-tying techniques. At his home, police found numerous Japanese-language books. Ball specifically targeted Japanese students because he believed them to be submissive and thus less likely to report the rapes. However, he believed wrongly. The students reported the crime and aided police in catching the perpetrators. Dailey and Ball faced sentences of 21 to 28 years in prison.
  • Lili Wang, a North Carolina State University (NCSU) graduate student, who became the victim of what may have been a racially-motivated crime. Richard Borelli Anderson had a strong sexual preference for Asian women because “they study hard, and they’re very nice, soft speaking.” In October of 2002, Anderson fired four gun shots into Wang, killing her before turning the gun on himself. Police found his body five feet away from Wang.
    Professor Andrew Chin maintained that this was a hate crime,
    but the NCSU police disagreed. “There is no evidence to suggest that the offender, Richard Anderson, acted on any bias against Lili Wang because of her race,” said John Daily, deputy director of the NCSU Police Department. Professor Chin contended that “if you view the chain of events and link the events together, including what may appeared to have been unwanted advances on a married woman [Wang], which lead to the murder, this may be a form of racial discrimination against an [Asian] woman. Chin believed the victim did nothing to bring about the senseless act, ot
    her than being an Asian woman.

A simple "tw daddy issues" would have sufficed. I've not seen my dad in 15 years and have had very disastrous relationships with older men as a result. I don't need to be reminded of that in my safe space. Thank you in advance.

Thank you for telling me, I can relate that post was very triggering for me too and I didn’t know the proper tag for posts like that. Sorry that you had to see that, we’ll properly tag it in the future -G

about the 'daddy issues' post like i know of some people who tag 'fathers' or 'family' for people who get triggered by that type of thing if you were wondering how to tag it ^_^

Thanks! That post was triggering for me and I didn’t know the proper tag for posts like that.  -G

The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.
Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another.
"Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.
Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.
Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death.
"They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.
A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death.
"I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.
According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half.
"I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."
It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.

:(

jesus..

let’s care just as much about black girls being murdered as we do about black boys. signal boost.

The malicious, misogynistic website called Return of Kings is known for writing articles advising western men to seek Asian women for reasons that are racist, and sexist. A lot of these western men claim they’re “emasculated by western women/feminism” and the only way to restore their masculinity is by having sex, dating, marrying and/or dominating a “submissive” Asian woman. This was brilliantly explained in Sunny Woan’s White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory of Asian Feminist Jurisprudence (I advise everyone to read it). 
Anyway, here are their reasons why western men should seek Asian women:

1. Feminine
Asian women have held close all the family values passed on from their mothers and grandmothers before them. Values that tell women to respect their man and be submissive to them. Being feminine is an ancestral cultural characteristic that most Asian women have, one that most western women wrongly interpret as slavery. Asian women have learned to talk softly to their husbands and be submissive to them; they actually HEAR what you have to say, not just pretend and then do what they want.
2. Traditional values
You can expect to eat a meal from the hands of your lovely Asian lady every single day, even if she also has a full-time job and works hard at it. Your house will be spotlessly clean and well-taken care of. Try asking a western woman to cook for you on a daily basis and you’ll probably end up with a bump on your head from the flying ashtray, or with a dreadful sex-starvation week!
3. They willingly play the “wife” role
Asian women are the pillars of the family, managing and organizing the household perfectly, but are smart enough to let you lead and have the reigns of the family. They take care of their children and love helping their husbands any way they can. They do the same for their partners, so even if you have an Asian woman as a girlfriend, you can still taste a slice of heaven in your everyday life. Generally speaking, an Asian woman has been taught she needs to make her husband happy and proud, with his relatives and friends, to have her as his wife, so she does her best to not let you down. 
4. Sexy
Most Asian women are not only family-oriented and respectful towards others. They are also caring and love themselves, too. They will make sacrifices to have a good shape (and maintain it no matter what) and please their man with it. As for their beauty, it seems that western men are particularly attracted by their slender figures (as opposed to the overweight body shapes of the west), shiny black hair, and appealing eyes.
5. Financially responsible
They are usually great money handlers, which is a huge plus when looking for a woman to start a family with. Your Asian wife will ask you each and every time she wants to spend shared money on the house. Try asking an American or European woman to do the same—Her voice will rise to the stratosphere if you try to reign in her shopping. 
6. They behave
Cheating is not an option for an Asian woman. Marriage is too sacred to them to dishonor it like that. 
7. They never refuse to have sex
They never give the cold shoulder to their feeling-horny hubbies. They will still make love with you, even if they are not in the greatest mood for 1000+1 Arabian nights.
8. They adapt quickly
They can act like a Western lady in particular ways without losing their subservient nature.
9. They avoid direct confrontations
They avoid conflicts and arguments with their other half and pursue a harmonious relationship, first and foremost.

Please help Black-American-Queen (Medical)

I have recently fallen on some hard times and desperately need your help. I am usually a very healthy person, but over the past year I’ve racked up some medical expenses I am unable to solve myself, so I am reaching out, almost in tears at this point, for your assistance.

Early this year, I had to see a doctor about my back a few months ago. I was unable to stand up, walk correctly or walk in a straight line until he worked on my back…. I am now more mobile, able to work out and take better care of myself. Unfortunately that service has left me with a cost has ballooned to $293.82 — something far out of my range.

A few months ago, I was having severe stomach issues, vomiting and bloating that continued despite my change in diet to more lean meats, vegetables, fruits and other healthy options. I was diagnosed with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) which I am now able to treat effectively an live a better life in comfort… but my visit for a diagnosis cost me $157.00 —- for one damn visit. It is unbelievable!!! Just to find out what was wrong with me…. (Sorry I can’t find a picture of this bill for you…)

This past month I was admitted to urgent care while out of state (visiting my mother who is recovering from cancer). They treated me, but at the expense of $145.00… at least I am not sick anymore… but this is getting nuts in my head… I didn’t want to o to the clinic because of money, but ultimately I was so uncomfortable I dragged myself there.

image

Finally my computer is acting up, I can’t type on my keyboard – the letters d,f,g,h,j,k,l aren’t working! This is limiting me to use the on screen keyboard limiting me to a sllllloooowww typing time. For school I need my computer back in working order desperately – without it I can’t type my essays or papers for class., I can’t apply to jobs. It looks like I need to replace the keyboard with estimates at $200-250.

I am trying to pay down my credit car bill ($250) — up a bit from amount pictured—, while addressing these costs, but I need help so badly.  I am a full time graduate student who donates plasma and works, but simply it won’t cover all these costs.

I am looking for $1,100 to cover my medical bills, computer and credit card bill. In return I can offer services to some of you for reviewing and editing papers – but then I need the computer repaired ASAP.
