Why is the #stopasianhate hashtag full of nothing but hogwash?
It's filtered and littered with people taking part in fetishism when it comes to Asians and people taking selfies.
This has literally nothing to do with why the hashtag was made in the first place.
It was made so important issues could be discussed publicly.
STOP sexualizing Asian women!
I will report every single post like that I see and I don't care who is running the account.
STOP tagging these important hashtags in your damn selfies!
THIS is what should be tagged!

As an asian woman, seeing a character that I admire greatly, such as Bucky Barnes, having even the slightest bit of interest in a character who looks like me means all the world.
When I look down at my hands I see nothing different but when I look at a mirror I am staunchly reminded that everyday people portray me a certain way and will automatically dismiss me in other ways.
Growing up it was hard to have boys you thought were cute have zero interest in you purely because of your race. When I was dating my husband, a white man, he was constantly getting jokes about having yellow fever. As if he needed to have some sort of asian fetish for our relationship to even make a lick of sense.
So to see Bucky Barnes on a date with an asian woman. A woman who looks like ME. Made me feel beautiful and attractive and overwhelmed with the idea that I am good enough.
