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
You should date someone who supports you and wants you to succeed, like a sober companion. Date someone who knows your sordid past but doesn’t walk away. Date someone who is willing to meet your parents, even when you tell them it’s a pointless idea. Date some who is articulate and a damn find dresser. Date someone who has pretty long black hair. Lucy Liu. You should date Lucy Liu.
