Asian American Sexual Politics: The Construction of Race, Gender, and Sexuality

English | June 7th, 2012 | ASIN: B008MOFGRI, ISBN: 1442209240, 1442209259 | 247 Pages | EPUB | 0.63 MB

Asian American Sexual Politics explores the topics of beauty, self-esteem, and sexual attraction among Asian Americans. The book draws on sixty in-depth interviews to show how constructions of Asian American gender and sexuality tend to reinforce the social and political dominance for whites, particularly white males, even in the supposed "post-racial" United States.

Drawing on established scholarship on the intersection of race, gender, and sexuality, Asian American Sexual Politics shows how power dynamics shape the lives of young Asian Americans today. Asian American women are often constructed as hyper-sexual docile bodies, while Asian American men are often racially "castrated." The book's interview excerpts show the range of frames through which Asian Americans approach the world, as well as the counter-frames they construct. In the final chapter, author Rosalind S. Chou offers strategies for countering racialized and sexualized oppression.

This provocative book shows how persistent racism affects Asian American body image, self-esteem, and intimate relationships.
