#SurvivingWoodAllen: That Needs To Happen (AKA Do Asian Girls Matter?)

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

I get it - sex, power, knowing one's body, etc., etc., etc., what's the age of consent in the U.S. and in other countries (isn't Canada 16?)--all play into the arguments.

And while I may not subscribe to all those sides of those arguments - definitely with sex, let's make sure we aren't siding on the side of puritanism--hey I get that part because dirty sex is dirty sex.

But Woody Allen?

His adopted daughter?

We're not talking about sex between two consenting adults-and we never have.

I argue, as I always have, that because she was Asian (and then secondarily also adopted) - she didn't matter.

No one gave - and no one gives - a shit about her.

White men have been pillaging girls and women of color for centuries.

And no one gave a shit about them.

So what's the difference right?

And yes - I have gone into all this in detail before - this is a gut post.

Kiss my ass MF's.
