No, no, no, no, and no.   No, no, no, no, no, no.

Behold...racist, fetishistic rape culture on steroids.  HollyWTF continues to grow bold with its rape scenes; it seems that rape is en vogue, worming its way onto TV shows and film with the hollow excuse of "But she gets revenge" sometimes tacked in somewhere.  In fact, the only thing as popular as rape in film and TV right now is slavery.

I'll leave you with an anecdote; stop me if you've heard this one.  When I was eighteen, I met the roommate of a family acquaintance who would wax nostalgic about the rape scene in I Spit on Your Grave (1978).  He was an older man; he recalled watching it when he was eleven, and would go on and on and on about how aroused he got during the gang rape scenes.

Now, troubling experience aside, there was some insight there for me to glean.  I realized early on that that's what all this is for: to turn straight guys on.  It's not meant to actually horrify anyone.  Revenge - if it even happens in a story - is just a cheap disclaimer to fend off critics.  This is merely a way to have cake and eat it too; misogyny without all the pesky consequences.

    It appears as if they threw in the revenge plot to keep it from sounding like the punishment porn script that it is.

    And you know what? They're going to get actresses cast. I don't even have to bet money on it to show how sure I am. -_-

  3. Not only is this fetishistic and gross, but I can also see it and its widespread type influencing mainstream directors' minds when it comes to accepting characters who are badass WoC, "Well, the revenge thing is all very well and good, but it's not sexy enough..."

  4. What's with this obsession of WOC color being raped? And of course they have to throw in the revenge angle to hide the fact it's just rape porn; The women in this movie, Michoone ( The Walking Dead) and of course can't forget Tara (True Blood). And many others.

    White boys lust after WOC, there's no denying that, but since them desiring a woman in a respectful and loving way has been reserved for white women only and could kill their status in a white supremacist society, WOC must be violently raped. That way they can play out they're lust for WOC without the respect, love or simply seeing these women as human beings. That's having their cake and eating too.

  5. Whoever is coming out with this godawful play is racist and obviously sick. It makes you wonder what that person will do to them?

  6. I read about this on Angry Asian Man. This sounds like a porn flick. This may even be a porn flick from the simple plot alone. Not only that, this stereotypes Asians - once again - as being naturally martial arts ready. So, it stands to reason that a white dude is behind all this.

    A lot of white men have a fetish with WoC being raped like Rose Z. Even more ironic is that some have a fetish of seeing white women getting raped by (drum roll) black men. I call it ironic as white men seem to only treasure white women only when they're raped by black men, but are silent as church mice when other white men rape white women.
