white women of hollywood, reducing japan and japanese culture to cupcakes, sexy ”costumes” and submissive sex-kittens since god knows when
Man, have you SEEN Kyary Pamyu Pamyu? It’s not reducing, and it ain’t just the white folk. When you’re in media you take what’s fun and amplify it: it’s why when people use America in things they showcase beaches and fast cars and attractive people. Let you in on a secret *whispers* America’s not REALLY like that, the lot of us are generally overweight, depressed, and poor.
If you want to talk about reduction, really look at how America is portrayed, three things:
and…country music for some reason, I don’t know.
Yeah it’s dumb that people only showcase on certain things from a culture, but it’s not reducing it. It’s media, it’s meant to draw people in, it’s not meant to teach them when it’s a silly music video. No one REALLY thinks these countries are like this, if you honestly just don’t know any better or you’re just plain dumb yes, but it’s meant to be fun, not a lesson.
And no, I’m not a weaboo or whatever the fuck, I’m not a dumbshit that grew up on this crap and thought it was what the country was about.
Fact of the matter is, watch some silly music videos from this country, and heck, a lot of the countries of the orient (heh, yeah, just look up Fantastic Baby by Bigbang and you’re in for a nice SoKorean treat) here’s another secret *whispers* they showcase a lot of this junk too. You know why? Cuz it’s meant to be silly and eye catching.
