IM SO PISSED OFF WITH THIS BLATANT YELLOWFACE ON YOUTUBE. ALSO THE ‘HOW TO LOOK LIKE A KOREAN GIRL’ VID GOT FLAGGED SO MANY TIMES IT GOT TAKEN DOWN….AND SHE RE-UPLOADED AND COMES BACK WITH THIS HOW TO LOOK HAPA SHIT. like how do people not see how offensive this is??? 

May I ask how this is at all offensive? If someone wants to look oriental, then that’s their decision. It’s not hurting or mocking anyone. It’s not degrading in anyway towards orientals. People in South Korea have plastic surgery upon plastic  surgery to look “western”, in fact, one in six girls in SK have had plastic surgery to look like a typical white. why can’t some white girls want to look asian?

it’s the fetishization, and racial sterotyping that offensive.aka. for similar reasons as to why blackface is offensive.
~the aspie one

I dunno, aspie one, this is looking a tad awkward. It’s not looking terribly like racial stereotyping, and I don’t get how it compares to blackface since, frankly, blackface is horrifying. Not even the intent of it, which is bad in and of itself, but the appearance… well…
What these videos, judging solely by the thumbnails, are harmless. As for fetishization, that is either a big gray area or the reason I’m failing to grasp what’s fetishizing (by the way, neither of those are words, what the hell?) about these, is it a YMMV thing or is there an across-the-board agreement on what classifies as fetishization?

yeah this isn’t the same black face, but the reasons why a video like that is offensive has some similarities to the reasons why blackface is offsensive in the sterotyping aspect at least, but  yes blackface is more negative/vulgar than that video.
~the aspie one

this isn’t even ‘vulgar’. sit your ass down.
this girl is 17 years old and has her makeup channel dedicated to Asian fashion and makeup because she likes it, not because she’s fetishising it (?). if that’s the case, get pissed over cosplay, white lolitas, black lolitas, hell, lolitas of any race other than japanese, and anyone trying to emulate/copy “ulzzang” style (which Venus is trying to do).
news flash: grow up.

if her channel is dedicated to makeup commonly worn in those countries, she shouldn’t have titled the video like that
~the aspie one

Would you have rather have her say “how to look Asian” ? She clearly has done the research on different asain cultures enough to specifically do makeup to have those features.

no she should’ve titled the video along the lines of ‘japanese style make up’ or ‘”ulzzang”(i think that’s the type of make-up shown in the one of the videos) style makeup tutorial’ or something.

a shot of vodka to all the 20 somethings who are coping with a lack of rent money by sitting around eating captain crunch in dinosaur PJs wishing they were actually a pre-teen again.
