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.
