A meme countering Asian Stereotypes


This is a mini meme I created in about 5 seconds. The stereotype is that Asian Women are subservient to their man. “Me love you long time” is a stereotypical stock phrase for Asian Women to say to their man before marriage. As stated before, the stereotype is that Asian women are hypersexual and are perfectly willing to serve their man. However, this has its possible origins in the Vietnam war, as the military paid the local woman to pleasure the soldiers stationed there. With the War going on, quite a few of these women were desperate enough to work in such a job and even married a few soldiers to get out of the area. But the idea that Asian women are willing to serve her man got carried back from Vietnam and created, or at least further perpetuated, the idea that Asian women passive lotus blossoms.
