Sick of Sarong Party Girl

Some of you have probably seen or read about Sarong Party Girl's nude photo on her blog. No, I am not going to give you her blog address. Find it yourself!

There are two reasons why I think she is getting so much public attention:

1. She is a young Singaporean women who is obsessed with picking up rich Caucasian men.

This is not original, so who cares? There must be thousands of other women like her in Singapore. I would be more interested in a Caucasian women who wants to pick up Asian men. Ha!

2. She posted a black and white nude photo of herself on her blog. Her face was blurred out, of course. Again, what's the big deal???

I have seen better bodies among my own friends or just strangers on the street. Are the men so pathetic that they have to drool over her nude body? Also, isn't she kind of pathetic for posting her photo? Obviously, she needs a lot of public attention.

I did a survey of some of my male friends who have seen her photo. Most of them were not that impressed. They don't think her body is that attractive or thought she was kind of "plump."

So let's get over this obsession with her photo. I am sick of her!

Who else agrees with me? Send me your comments.

    When will White men finally get over their stereotyped fantasy of the geish girl, or china doll? Its disgusting that sarong party girl chooses to participate in perpetuating this sexist and racist image of asian women by using herself to bait White men.
    And when did it become politically incorrect to use the term 'white' instead of 'caucasian'? I don't think that those with fairer complexions will really be hurt, except being somewhat offended, by this racial term as they don't have to deal with all the racist crap that ethnic minorities have to deal with on a regular basis such as loss of employment opportunities, racial slurs, and other types of harassment. As a visible minority woman and feminist, I have made a choice not to date any WHITE men regardless of how culturally informed they are about my own culture as the unequal power dynamics inherent within White male-visible minority women relationships, are not worth the effort. Sarong Party Girl needs to spend less time passing herself off as eye candy for White male consumption!

    Hear, hear! There are lots of white men who desire Chinese women just because they think they are exotic or submissive.

    I guess Singapore Party Girl thinks she is cool because she has lots of white men chasing her or she is being sexually liberated by dating tons of white men.

    However, what will happen to her in the end? The men are just using her. Won't the men just dump her as soon as they find someone else who they think is more exotic or attractive?

    Good point about the inherent power dynamics in white male-visible minority female relationships. Often, it is the white male who tends to have the most control or say in those relationships. However, is that really because of race or is it because the women tend to be less educated and from poorer countries than the guy?
