LITERALLY CANNOT BELIEVE WHAT I JUST FUCKING READ
"misogynistic chinese culture" WHO THE FUCK DO YOU THINK YOU ARE. THIS MOVIE IS SO GROSSLY ORIENTALIST AND RACIST LIKE??? NEWSFLASH: MULAN WASN’T SHAMED OR SHIT ON WHEN SHE REVEALED HER TRUE GENDER. SHE WAS OFFERED A REWARD AND CHOSE TO GO HOME. THAT’S IT. IF YOU DON’T KNOW TWO SHITS ABOUT CHINESE CULTURE SHUT THE FUCK UP. SHUT THE FUCK UP AND STOP CALLING MY CULTURE "MISOGYNISTIC" WHEN IT OPERATES SO DIFFERENTLY FROM WESTERN CULTURE
HEY AND FUCK YOU—PEOPLE WERE FUCKING SLAUGHTERED UNDER MONGOL RULE. PARTS OF OUR CULTURE SHITTED ON. But nah, who fucking CARES. CUZ THE MONGOLS WERE SOOOOO GREAT AT GENDER EQUALITY LOLOLOL give me a FUCKING break
And stop stop what the FUCK this movie literally portrays Mongols as gray hulking evil beasts—look, their form is barely fucking human. Like how is this not racist?
You’re going to shit on MY culture and call it sexist for shit YOU KNOW 0 ABOUT, and then you’re gonna just ignore the blatant racism perpetrated against the people you’re praising.
Shut the fuck up. Mulan is not and never was about feminism. Stop trying to fucking warp my culture into your fucking little white feminism views. Sit the fuck down.
A+++++++ COMMENTARY ABOVE
i hv much to say but i am on my phone
i will deal w this hot steaming mess later
i’m on my computer and at home now so i can deal with this cesspit of misinformation and assholery
first, you are wrong. you are wrong, you are wrong, and i sincerely hope the lot of you and any other ignorant asshat sits on an anthill.
Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun.
he is not a hun. disney might say a thing, but that does not mean a thing is correct. FIRST, the closest relationship the huns have to chinese history are the xiongnu, but the evidence for that is flimsy at best and is far from being widely accepted
Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders.
yeah, and? you seem to be under the frankly birdbrained idea that chinese notions of gender roles are fixed, and based entirely around the strict neo-confucianist gender roles of the song dynasty, but that’s far from true and chinese society is far from static, even during the song.
tang and song dynasty women were allowed to own businesses, own capital, divorce their husbands, let’s not fucking pretend like china doesn’t have female rulers who, though only one of them was a legitimate sitting emperor, wielded significant amounts of power
that’s not to mention the fact that china has a loooooooongass motherfucking tradition of female warriors, most of whom, UNlike hua mulan, did NOT disguise their genders yet STILL rose to distinction, and most of whom, i might add, ARE VENERATED
ha. ha. funny thing, that. esp given that in most CHINESE depictions of hua mulan, she is the subject of the northern wei court. who ruled the norther wei? you might ask. well, friend, it was the tuoba! which is why the dynasty is also sometimes called the tuoba wei. fun fact, their capital was actually in my hometown of datong, which is where (and when) they carved the yungang grottoes. before they moved it to luoyang. fuck luoyang. now who were the tuoba, you might ask? well, friend, they were a NOMADIC MONGOLIC PEOPLE.
or or or! it could have something to do with the fact that north chinese (along with other vanquished people like the khitans of the liao dynasty the jurchens of the jin and the koreans of the goryeo) were treated as the second-lowest rung of the mongol social ladder! OR the fact that south chinese were treated like the LOWEST rung of that ladder! and god, why would the people at the top of that ladder want to have anything to do with the people at the bottom? but yo, what the hell do i know, i’m just a descendent of those second-lowest people and a willing female participant of this “misogynistic chinese culture” you clearly have so nuanced and wholistic an understanding of.
also, just as a by the way. the khans did, to some extent, assimilate.
but hey! thanks for weighing in on a history you clearly have no education in, a culture you know nothing about, and a folktale that has nothing to do with and which has been destroyed by people like you!!!!
bringin this back for reasons
also for a website that frequently passes around chinese internet memes and which likes to make bullshit political commentary about chinese contexts they know nothing about (see: tiananmen “totalitarian dystopia” “smog”) y’all are so bad at knowing shit about china
feminism is a western movement, right? i’d feel gross imposing feminist ideals on eastern countries especially after living in the united states my whole life.
that’s why i hate it when western people make art about eastern countries. i don’t care if they even did research beforehand, because ultimately we view the world with a western bias.
