Chinese Models Break Barriers in Beauty and Business

arabellesicardi:

“Sometimes a Westerner will say to channel the thirties or forties during a photo shoot,” says New York-based model Xiao Wen Ju. “I want to tell them what China was up to then…it would terrify them!” She’s referring, of course, to the violent upheaval of a 3,000-year-old dynastic system, civil war, Japanese aggression, and Communist rule that characterized much of China’s past century.

TELL THEM. LET THEM KNOW

By a goofy and nice turn of events, I will be hosting Junko Mizuno at my apartment on Saturday, where she will be interviewed by Robin for his Inkstuds podcast.  Will snap some pics for Same Hat!

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.

the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.

My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

Sigh.

i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese.  are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics?  or am i missing something here?

it keeps getting better.

awww man see I immediately fell into the trap of being excited for all the kickass lady stuff and didn’t give this much thought

This is a very valid point and hugely disappointing

I just found the summary of this thing

"The story focuses on a woman (Scarlett Johansson) who is forced to become a drug mule. But when the drug accidentally goes into her body, she is mysteriously granted superhuman powers. She absorbs knowledge instantly, can move objects with her mind and can’t feel any pain or distress–plus look hot as hell doing it."

Isn’t insensitivity to pain considered a disability? And isn’t it a serious problem for those who have that genetic condition?

Also, you’re going to love WHY she gets the superpowers. To quote The Journalist: “The pretext for this is that the drug allows her access to 28% of her brain’s capacity, as the human mind only allows access to 10%. Teaming up with a professor, played by Morgan Freeman, she examines her own abilities and looks to see what happens when 100% of her mind’s capacity is unlocked.”

The “only 10% of the brain is used” concept is a complete myth. All of the brain is used—it’s just that it isn’t used simultaneously. Also, much of the brain exists to keep the body operational. It’s not just for thinking.

So far we’ve got racism, faux feminism, scare tactics, trying to pass off a disability as a superpower, and incredibly bad science even by Hollywood standards. Great.

Valid poinrs

those are fruits and vegetable names written in blood-like paint behind her… are they code words? do they mean something? or do they just look like convenient oriental gibberish to serve as props?

I’m thinking probably just gibberish. Someone needed convenient handwritten words, so they went to Chinatown and took pictures of the fruit stands because they were the first ones they could find.
