Posted by Jack Stephens on May 14, 2007

Fayyad, who blogs for KABOBfest, writes about U. S. sponsered terrorism:

From Sponsoring Al Qaeda to the Contras in Nicaragua, the United States has a long and eventful history of sponsoring terrorist organizations to destabilize countries and regimes that fall out of favor of favor with the US and it’s unmatched “moral high ground.” The below article in the Sunday Telegraph from a few weeks ago is an expose of the US’s latest adventure in non-uniform terrorism.

The Dragoon Lady Stereotype

Jenn writes:

The conflation of Asian women with whores only plays off of the hypersexualized stereotypes of Asian women as sex kittens — a stereotype popularized by the Vietnamese prostitutes of Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. This hypersexualization diminishes Asian American women into fulfilling a single role: that of being the sexual plaything of men, White or otherwise. We are rendered little more than the sum of our sexuality, incapable of being doctors, lawyers, scientists, mothers, sisters, daughters or real people in our own right.
