Victoria's Secret "Go East" Lingerie Deemed RACIST

Quote:[Image: 822F_50619FD5.jpg]
Victoria’s Secret has removed a newly launched lingerie collection titled Go East from its website, after one particular outfit called Sexy Little Geisha was labelled racist by offended critics.

The 'Eastern-inspired' cut-out sheer mesh teddy, which comes with a matching removable obi belt, fan and chopsticks, was described as 'your ticket to an exotic adventure,' by the lingerie giant.

After Racialicious, a website that dissects the intersection of race and popular culture, accused Victoria's Secret of reducing Eastern culture to a stereotype of exotic sexuality, other critics quickly followed suit.

Racialicious called the outfit, modelled by Swedish born model Candice Swanepoel, 'A troubling attempt to sidestep authentic representation of a culture and opt instead for racialized fetishizing against Asian women.

(snip)

'There’s a long-standing trend to represent Asian women as hypersexualized objects of fantasy, so it’s telling that none of the models wearing the Go East collection appear to be Asian.'

At first glance, I was thinking it was another woman dressed like a cat. I hate women in cat costumes! Even the cartoon superheroes creep me out.

It is racist.

This word gets overused. Absolutely everything is "racist" these days. People seem to WANT to be offended. It is even used when people are too lazy to THINK (ie ALL criticism of Obama is "racist"). These people, and apparently you, need to get over yourselves.

its because we are not allowed to think or have our own opinions... we are being told what to think/feel/act.

what a woman wears in her bedroom or under her clothes should not be an issue.

so what's next? if a white person wears a do-rag is that racist?
