From perennially perky breasts to smooth, hairless legs, womanhood has been constantly sexualized and subjected to unrealistic standards. However, none have been as harmful, or as unexplored, as the expectation of having a tight vagina. Tight vaginas are prized in almost every society and culture that has roots in patriarchy. And this stereotype appears to heavily affect Asian women in particular. And how do they bring it on home for the win? Oh, the smallest vaginas in the game. Valinda Nwadike, MD and obstetrics and gynecology specialist in California, Maryland, can see how this stereotype exists, and whole heartedly disagrees with the premise. I would definitely disagree with this stereotype. That in itself would negate the myth. It should be put to bed absolutely.
Most Asian women first encounter this stereotype when they start having sex with men
So let's put the myth to bed
Rape culture is entrenched in society at ideological, institutional, and individual levels. And they might even be something that you dismiss as harmless — or even as compliments. So below are ways that racist and sexist tropes leveraged against East Asian women intersect with rape culture.
We call these racial groups for brevity, realizing that Latinx is sometimes considered an ethnicity rather than a race. We examined racial differences separately for men and women and compared groups on attitudes and behaviors. For more details on our models, see the Technical Appendix at the end of this post. On some values and aspirations, racial groups seem remarkably alike. Racial groups also differ little in their ideas of the best age to do these things, with the average age seen as ideal for marriage between 25 and 28 for all groups and the average ideal age for having a first child between 27 and Also, racial groups have in common that, in each group, compared to women, men see a slightly higher age as appropriate for themselves to take on these roles.
An Asian fetish is a strong sexual or romantic preference for persons of Asian descent, especially East or Southeast Asian descent and to some extent South Asian descent. The fetishization of East Asians by people of other ethnicities is sometimes described by the derogatory term yellow fever. A well known stereotype of Asian women is that they are subservient , passive, and quiet. This image persists today, along with the idea of Asian women being exotic and submissive. In the afterword to the play M. Butterfly , the writer David Henry Hwang , using the term "yellow fever", a pun on the disease of the same name , discusses Caucasian men with a "fetish" for east Asian women. The pun refers to the color terminology for race , in which persons of East and Southeast Asian heritage are sometimes described as "Yellow people".
