As an East and Southeast Asian woman, I have been subjected to fetishization from men because of my race. The term originated in the 18th and 19th century when Euro-Americans were crazy for Chinoiserie, or in other words, adapting Chinese and other East Asian motifs and styles in Western art.
As a result, Asian female bodies were objectified as ornaments. Additionally, the idea of geishas has contributed to the harmful stereotype of Asian women as submissive and quiet.
These influences and stereotypes have continued into the present and are seen through the corrupt obsession and fetishization of Asian women. Specifically, Southeast Asian countries have an extensive history of colonization, violence, and imperialism from Western countries like the Vietnam War, Indochina Conflict, and Philippine-American War, to name just a few.
Women were raped, sexually assaulted, and impregnated by white soldiers. The colonization of the female bodies in these countries is an important part of history that has contributed to the fetishization of Southeast Asian women to this day. The effects that East and Southeast Asian women have faced as a result of yellow fever are rampant and heavy. They also feel like they have been depersonalized to an object. Racial depersonalization is a concern because it makes them feel like they are not an individual but instead an object that can easily be replaced by someone who has a similar physical appearance to them.
