what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead
and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her
and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people
and what if when a pervy white dude asks the asian woman “do you speak english” while he’s in fucking taiwan, she shoots him in the head instead
what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies
That scene in the Lucy trailer where she’s like DO YOU SPEAK ENGLISH and one dude is like what and she shoots him and then points the gun at the other dude
How is that empowering.
Yeah, I’mma go to Taiwan and expect the brown people to speak English and if they don’t we SHOOT THE MOTHERFUCKER
Doesn’t that sound a lot like…oh….I don’t know….a lot of imperialistic invasions done by the US and Britain over the course of history?
Also don’t pretend that you don’t think there are white people who are like YEAH WE NEED TO KILL ALL THEM ASIANS AND MEXICANS AND IMMIGRANTS THAT DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH BECAUSE THIS IS AMERICA AND “WHEN IN ROME DO AS THE ROMANS DO” because you know those motherfuckers are out there and they’re not that uncommon.
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
you dont need vaccines, I havent had any and Im still doing great
wow, what a compelling argument. you’ve got me
in other news, i am still alive therefore death must be a myth
