About a month ago, YouTube personality Anna Akana gave us an (awesome) angry rant about yellow fever — something that many of us Asian women have experienced at one point or another.
“These men, the problem with them is that they don’t give a f- about who you really are. The idea of you is enough,” Akana rants. “I don’t understand why you would romanticize an entire race as being submissive or weak or docile or delicate or fragile or whatever the f- is the allure of Asian women.”
But some women, such as Joy Regullano, opt for other ways of showing disdain for yellow fever. In a sketch called “White Fetish,” Regullano uses satiric humor to turn the tables and show everyone just how annoying yellow fever truly is.
So for all the Asian women out there who have been called exotic, or who have had drunk men scream “Ni Hao” in their ear at a bar (’cause we all apparently speak Chinese), this ones for you.
