70s-postmiserablism:

i get it

every white dude would love to have grand adventures in feudal japan

to be both *tragically oppressed* because of their *outsider status* and at the same time be the special white snowflake

to have crowds of asians bowing before them and looking up to them 

to have ruggedly greasy hair and perpetually perfect stubble

and to have a sexy/dangerous romance with a mysterious magical dragon lady

(or several)

i understand that white men are emotionally stunted, pimply 15-year-olds inside

yet they’re the only ones who get to have their little fantasies indulged in movies, who get to see them reflected everywhere in the media

and it’s great that every white boy, every white teenager, every white cishet grown man gets to be empowered by these stories!!! that’s great!!! 

but where were my stories when i was growing up

where were the gratuitous mary sues, the blatantly, wish-fulfillingly perfect asian girls, the badass AND tragic AND beautiful AND clever asian heroines, the breathtaking fantasy worlds built just for me to have adventures in, where was all of that? why did I have to consume stories made for white males, stories created by people who didn’t even seem to acknowledge my mere existence? and why did i have to accept these stories as “universal”?

and i guess it’s a small victory that 47 ronin actually cast actual asian actors to play the asian characters

but how many people are going to go see this movie just to see themselves on screen

how many of us are going to accept these fucking crumbs and make compromises just to see a little representation

i’m not sure i can exactly put into words how out of place and invisible it makes you feel

even when a rare character shows up who does look like you, they’re obviously written by a white person, either as a token or some stereotyped character written for the consumption of a white audience, or they’re played by a white person in yellowface

and never a main character, never a fully fleshed out character, never even an important one, really

and it’s like seeing people talking about you as if you’re not even in the room

-

"i get it"

I bet you don’t get it at all.

-

"every white dude would love to have grand adventures in feudal japan"

Nope, you didn’t get it, you assuming spawn of a trans*dimensional whore.

-

"to be both *tragically oppressed* because of their *outsider status* and at the same time be the special white snowflake"

You described every movie where someone, who is an outsider or a foreigner, enters a new society, culture, realm or whatever.

Bless the God Emperor, you are one ignorant Chaos creature, fully unaware of your chaos-centric views on my realm!

-

"to have crowds of asians bowing before them and looking up to them "

Didn’t happen, can confirm due to pirating a shitty cam due to boredom.

-

"to have ruggedly greasy hair and perpetually perfect stubble”

Oh no, someone who spent their time trying to accomplish something didn’t bathe, let’s point out shit that doesn’t even matter!

Like, did you know, the Japanese find bad teeth cute.

-

"and to have a sexy/dangerous romance with a mysterious magical dragon lady"

What fucking movie did you watch, I didn’t see this shit.

-

"(or several)"

Wait, what…?

Are we sure it wasn’t some “Samurai” diddling little boys, as usual?

-

"i understand that white men are emotionally stunted, pimply 15-year-olds inside"

And I understand that most Asians are short, have a low melanin level, and can be classed as bad drivers.

-

"yet they’re the only ones who get to have their little fantasies indulged in movies, who get to see them reflected everywhere in the media"

And yet, your US-centric views and way of life shows!

Because, what the hell are foreign films, right? LIKE, DID YOU KNOW, IN JAPAN, THEY CAST MOSTLY JAPANESE PEOPLE!? HOW FUCKING DARE THOSE FILTHY, RACIST BASTARDS!

-

"and it’s great that every white boy, every white teenager, every white cishet grown man gets to be empowered by these stories!!! that’s great!!! "

You can’t into sarcasm, sweet cheeks.

-

"but where were my stories when i was growing up"

You didn’t look hard enough, or you could try looking toward a country where you could be seen as the majority. Or, I don’t know, try Sweden? I hear they make great multicultural pornography.

-

"where were the gratuitous mary sues, the blatantly, wish-fulfillingly perfect asian girls, the badass AND tragic AND beautiful AND clever asian heroines, the breathtaking fantasy worlds built just for me to have adventures in, where was all of that?"


That’d be anime, unless you wish to actually learn some Asian languages and get some awesome films that haven’t been cleared for issue in the West.

-

"why did I have to consume stories made for white males, stories created by people who didn’t even seem to acknowledge my mere existence? and why did i have to accept these stories as “universal”?"

Because, you’re in a country where white is the majority. So, of course, white people will be cast more often than not.
-

"and i guess it’s a small victory that 47 ronin actually cast actual asian actors to play the asian characters"

Like any movie with Asian characters being played by Asian people?

-

"but how many people are going to go see this movie just to see themselves on screen"

Because everyone looks like Stone-faced Neo, am I right?

-

"how many of us are going to accept these fucking crumbs and make compromises just to see a little representation"

Your fault for not looking at films made in other countries, and seeing mainstream bull shit.

-

"i’m not sure i can exactly put into words how out of place and invisible it makes you feel"

Then GTFO this country into one that you’re a majority in, if you truly feel like you can’t fit in. There’s a poor Chinese family that’ll take your place and actually create something from their time here.
-

"even when a rare character shows up who does look like you, they’re obviously written by a white person, either as a token or some stereotyped character written for the consumption of a white audience, or they’re played by a white person in yellowface"

Then STFU, get off your entitled, lazy ass and start working on a movie that you want made!

-

"and never a main character, never a fully fleshed out character, never even an important one, really"

*starts playing violin*

-

"and it’s like seeing people talking about you as if you’re not even in the room"

Social invalid confirmed for hiding in plain sight due to not speaking up and blending in with the room’s decor.

"I’m so upset that someone on tumblr called white men emotionally stunted and pimply that I’m going to derail this argument! :’C"
- Factual Wiley

Hey guy, why is your ask box disabled? It’s almost as if you don’t want people disagreeing with you.
