Why are east Asian women really hypersexualized in western countries? When did this start and is it more present in North America compared to Europe or is it the same? Also, do you think that all woc are hypersexualized to the same extent or do certain woc experience it more than others? Thanks.
Sunny Woan, the author of White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory on Asian Feminist Jurisprudence, stated that white sexual imperialism, through rape and war, created the hyper-sexualized stereotype of Asian women. This stereotype in turn fostered the over-prevalence of Asian women in pornography, the mail-order bride phenomenon, the Asian fetish syndrome, and worst of all, sexual violence against Asian women. The hyper-sexualization of Asian women is universal, not exclusively in North America and Europe. Woc are hyper-sexualized to the same extent but hyper-sexualized differently. For example, Animalistic black woman, Submissive Asian woman, Spicy, fiery Latina, Exotic Native woman etc. -G
