And the Pussification of America Continues: Feminists Force Victoria Secret To Stop Selling Geisha Lingerie
Yahoo - It takes hundreds of employees, thousands of hours and millions of dollars to launch a mass market lingerie line. And one blogger to take it all down. ” Two weeks ago, Jacinto, a 26-year-old Bay Area blogger and non-profit development manager, most likely became one of those factors. It all started here. “I saw a link to [Victoria's Secret's Go East] line on the blog, Angry Asian Man,” she says. “Hooray for exotic orientalist bull—-,” wrote the blogger who included a link to the “Asian-inspired” lingerie line’s centerpiece: “The Sexy Little Geisha,” a mesh teddy that comes with an obi belt, chopsticks and a fan. Immediately Jacinto sat down to write an insightful post on why she found the outfit, and the line in general, offensive. “It’s the kind of overt racism masked behind claims of inspired fashion and exploring sexual fantasy that makes my skin crawl,” she wrote in article published September 6 on the blog Racialicious, a site for commentary on the intersection of culture and race.
“There’s a long-stan”It’s important that companies like VS know that capitalizing on a stereotype and on a culture is tasteless and offensive,” she explains. ding trend to represent Asian women as hypersexualized objects of fantasy,” wrote Jacinto. She also took umbrage with the lingerie description as “your ticket to an exotic adventure” and the fact that none of the models for the collection were of Asian descent. “The lack of Asian women here simply exposes the deep-rooted nature of the Orientalist narrative, one that trades real humanness for access to culture,” she wrote. “Besides, it can only feel sexy and exotic if it’s on an “American” body—without the feeling of accessing something foreign or forbidden, there can be no fantasy.”
By the afternoon, major news outlets like the Huffington Post began calling blogger backlash to Victoria’s Secret a “controversy.” The Daily Mail noted that the teddy and the Go East line in its entirety had been removed from the company website and replaced with the main product page. The company still hasn’t released a statement or confirmed its decision to remove the line, and had not returned Yahoo! Shine’s request for comment at press time.
I don’t even know what we’re talking about here. Are we talking about practice? Practice? Yes I want to fuck Geishas. Yes I think this lingerie is sexy as hell. Yes I want to dress the first lady up in this and pretend she’s Asian and have wild exotic sex. How does that make me racist? Isn’t that a compliment to Asian chicks? I think you’re hot. I think you have great asses. I want to bang you. How is that any different than any other fantasy role playing? German beer girl? Swiss Miss girl etc?
Seriously there is literally nothing these feminist cunts won’t complain about. Like not only is this chick mad that this lingerie exists, but she’s also mad that since it does exist Victoria Secret doesn’t have an Asian chick modeling it. Umm wouldn’t that be worse? Stop being a dickhead. This is just hot ass lingerie. That’s it. There is no grand message behind it. It exists simply to make blood rush to your dick. That’s it. Can’t we just leave it at that for once and not make a federal investigation out of it. Fucking feminists…..
PS – Since when does Victoria Secret give a shit what ugly feminists say about them? Not exactly there market.
