It’s something astonishing to me that we live in year 2014 and yet articles such as this are still published, receiving criticism in spurts and yet overwhelming support overall, and still remains posted on a website as long as this one has.

The fetishization of Asian women is rampant, disgusting, and a lot of the fetishizers try to play it off as if these are good traits that Asian women should be “happy” are associated with them.

Heads up - There is such a thing as “loving racism” if that’s what you even want to call it. Moreso it’s some sexist garbage wrapped in racism, tangled in gender role propaganda.

They reduce women into one defined name - “Asian” - and then assign attributes that are demeaning and humilating at best.

  • "When you do something that makes her happy, she’s delightedly joyful, saying “yayyyyyyyy!”, clapping her hands together repeatedly like a little girl who just received her first birthday cake." Childish, child like, naive, innocent
  • "The way she shyly caresses your shoulder when she wants to talk to you instead of tapping it with insistence until you turn around. Her special feminine touch in those little day-to-day actions makes a man instantly curious and attracted to her" Obeying, obedient, “well-behaved”
  • "The way Asian girls move, the way they express themselves and even the way they dance are artful ways to attract men’s attention to their greatest physical asset: their face. Her scintillant eyes, through which her emotions pour out uncontrollably, will get your gaze stuck in them for a lot longer than you anticipated"  Eternally youthful doll-like attributes, praised for unrealistic beauty ideals that no one can really achieve
  • "She listens to what you have to say and wait until you’re finished before speaking, never cutting you off in the middle of your stories to butt in with something about hers." Submissive; again obeying, obedient, well-behaved
  • "You will never be hungry again for the rest of your life if you decide to live with an Asian girl. Even if she’s tired and stressed from her own day and you told her you would order food for the evening to let her rest, you will come back home and be welcomed by the scent of a warm, freshly cooked dinner that could feed your entire family for a month."  Housewife; her race inherently means that she is a caretaker, she lives to serve others, she conforms to daily rituals of feeding and cleaning and assumes a role of a domestic slave

This is a “writer” (using the term writer VERY loosely here) that writes incredibly misogynistic garbage, so much so that an article saturated in blatant racism and stereotypes such as this one is no real surprise. See:

Tell this piece of subhuman garbage that these kind of trash articles are not okay.

This kind of shit is beyond fucking disturbing. Protect Asian girls and women from fetishization and this type of demeaning behavior at all costs.

Hi nerves. En route to an interview in midtown.

Hi nerves. En route to an interview in midtown.

Lined up.

Lined up.

In 1937, my great-grandfather started a workwear company in New England called Madewell. In 2006, 17 years after the last factory shut down, J.Crew relaunched a women’s clothing company with the same name and logo, based on a 50-year history in which it had no part.

I stopped dead on Broadway, in the middle of the sidewalk, and stared, not up at the beautiful wrought-iron SoHo buildings, as would befit someone who’d moved to New York in the past month, but at an ordinary sign advertising a small clothing shop. The logo, a casual cursive scrawl with both E’s capitalized, jumped out at me like a beacon from a lighthouse somewhere deep in the back of my brain. That was the logo emblazoned on my baby clothes, the logo my great-grandfather created. It was, I thought, forgotten family history, the factories having shut down shortly after I was born in the ’80s. After a moment I took out my phone and called my mom and asked her what the hell was going on.

Really happy to have read this. I remember smelling bullshit the first time I saw a shop ~5 years ago, and was disappointed to come up short on searches about its true history.

I feel way more specific than I’ve previously felt about what I want to be doing next, for whom, and how.

I only recently learned about elevator pitches — on the product side — and in doing so saw how it can apply to anything, like getting specific and focused on my own motivations, strengths and struggles.

The exercise of pinpointing these things has made this round of job searching painful in a new way. I’m noticing there’s a “pick two” theme and the choices are 1. respectable income & benefits, 2. long-term, and 3. exciting to wake up for / easy to sleep at night (which means it fulfills what I want to be doing and for what kind of organization).

My three strongest leads right now are each one of the three unique “pick two” combinations and it hurts.

And then every time I see a job description that is screaming at me it’s for a fortune 100-500 and… no, thanks.

I’m only beginning, and I’m already bummed (residual from my job ending on Friday when that was not the plan or goal or what won me over at interview time) but I’ll be damned if I’m returning to stay-home parent work after only (an on/off/on intense, emotional, sacrifice-y, hectic, challenging, painful, lonely, and cognitive process-heavy) six months back into the swing of things. I entered the clearing after the hardest part only to find I’m starting over from scratch when I wasn’t expecting it.

With hindsight, “rewarding” will mostly overshadow that story. At present, I’m managing a few layers of compounding and temporary disappointments.

Thoughts on NY.
I came for the Italian bakeries, stayed for the French ones.

Happy 33rd birthday, Peter! For half a year we thought this would be a double celebration weekend. Went ahead and doubled the dessert options anyhow. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
