The AVN Awards

CONTENT WARNING: As with most things associated with the AVN, this post contains quotes of their crude language.

Fred Fitzsimmons, 2008 AVN Adult Movie Awards

… but don’t forget, it’s the little people that makes this industry profitable, and by the little people of course, I mean Asian men [laughter, camera pans to an Asian male (not Keni Styles) who smiles, given where he was seated he would seem to be a porn star]. Now, [pause] they love their porn, they like to watch it, but we never put ’em in it, what’s up with that? It’s always like the pizza delivery guy who fucks everybody with his giant schlong, nobody ever sends out for Chinese.

2011 AVN Adult Movie Awards

Kim Tao: I’m Kim Tao, I’m new. Suck and fuck a whole lot more.
Dave Navarro: Now, now, let me ask you a favour, what nationality are you?
Kim Tao: I’m Vietnamese
Dave Navarro: Now would you mind taking a look at this cuticle?
Kim Tao: Oh they’re so cute [hits his hand away].

Euro pre-show female hosts: Look who we have here, it’s Lisa Lampanelli … I’m such a big fan … So is it true that you married a white man?
Lampanelli: Yes I did
Pre-show host: I thought you liked black cock
Lampanelli: Well what had happened was, as you know, I had blown more black guys than hurricane Katrina.
Pre-show hosts: True.
Lampanelli: However, I said let me find a guy with no kids, you gotta go white.
Pre-show host: You have to.
Lampanelli: It’s not like I went Asian or something really small because you know please …
Pre-show host: You need to …
Lampanelli: I mean they’re really small, and Jews too …
Pre-show host: Yeaaah
Lampanelli: Except for Ron Jeremy, [rarrr!] hi Ron.
Pre-show host: We didn’t know you [indistinguishable] … would you fuck Ron Jeremy?
Pre-show host: You did?
Lampanelli: No, no I did not, no I did not [laughs]

Lisa Lampanelli, AVN Awards Show 2011

… they sent me a huge box of porn to prepare, I gotta tell you something, you men have huge dicks! If I had one of them in my face I wouldn’t know if I would suck it or feed it a peanut. They also sent me a few black porn which I love, oh yes! [crowd cheers] …. So wait a minute, I’m watching these DVDs and I realize that there’s no porn with Asian men, you know why,? it’s gotta be that small dick thing you know [some in the crowd murmur disapprovingly] … oh come on! [camera shoots to Keni Styles who looks kinda pissed] … oh there is one!!! oh I’m sorry! … I know you sister Sum Dum Hoe, she’s terrific [Keni does a stereotypical coolie bow]. He is so cute. Actually I’ve never even slept with an Asian guy cause you know I’m trying to have an orgasm not get my computer fixed [crowd laughs and Keni joins them]. Actually though I did see a gay Japanese porn once, gay and Japanese, you know what that means, they green tea bag each other [crowd cheers]. They’ll toss you salad but they have to take off their shoes first [crowd cheers]. They’ll gobble your knob but they’ll take about a hundred pictures while they’re doing it [crowd cheers]. There was actually a porn once with a handicap guy, did you ever see this shit, a handicap guy? Handicap guy, I date …. [someone in the audience is talking indistinctly to her] what’s that?, he’s Asian and handicapped, God must really hate him [cuts to French couple Katsuni & Manuel Ferrara with Katsuni looking amazed that Lampanelli would even say that while her husband Manuel is smiling, perhaps he agrees, crowd sounds stunned and murmurs with some laughter]. Actually, the handicapped guy was really hot …. [so she didn’t know he was Asian?]. All this porn, I love you guys because you do wild stuff [I thought Asians were the ones who went overboard on wild porn], oh my God, there was a porn where a [voice and facial emphasis] guy licked the girl’s asshole. You know what I heard it taste like? a penny. Look at all the Jews are like [growling voice] sign me up! [cuts to Jenna Haze laughing then nervously stops as she realizes she’s on camera].

Are these awards or stereotype fests?

Complaint Letter to TargetMap

Email letter complaint to TargetMap

Good day,

I would like to lodge a complaint against the site at this URL: http://www.targetmap.com/viewer.aspx?reportId=3073

It purports to show average penis sizes for different countries with sources. However, most of the sources are non-existent and not even urological researchers have as much data as this site allegedly contains.

This site however, has been used by many to stereotype East and South Asian males on forums and other websites. As such, I call attention to your Terms of Service Policy:

– Publish falsehoods or misrepresentations that could damage TargetMap or any third party.
– Submit material that is unlawful, obscene, defamatory, libelous, threatening, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive, or encourages conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, violate any law, or is otherwise inappropriate.

Two months and no answer, go figure.

More Open Access Books

The Internet is a gold mine for researchers and avid readers. Open Access Publishing in European Networks (OAPEN) is described as:

… a collaborative initiative to develop and implement a sustainable Open Access publication model for academic books in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The OAPEN Library aims to improve the visibility and usability of high quality academic research by aggregating peer reviewed Open Access publications from across Europe.

For more information, see:

Even more books are freely available at The Open Book Publishers. Some are for digital purchase at cheap prices with hard and paperback copies also available. Alternatively, books for purchase can be read online.

Some university presses are making selected titles accessible such as the three titles listed here:

While Open Access does have a high bias for English language publications, two Spanish language books can be downloaded from the Open Monograph Press of the University of Murcia (Spain).

WordPress Blog Archiving

Just saw a WordPress account suspended and realized that my own blog was not archived. It takes lots of time and effort to create even a simple post so that a non-archived suspended account could send a blogger into depression.

You can save via software like SiteSucker (Mac) or a PC offline explorer but this is somewhat tedious. A simple method is to simply save all your posts by month and year through your archive links. While this includes your private posts, it does not include pending posts. Thus the safest bet is an offline explore program, many of which are free.

On Abe Lincoln

From a Mises review of ‘Forced Into Glory: Abraham Lincoln’s White Dream‘ by Lerone Bennett Jr.

Purported words of Lincoln:

Negroes have natural rights, however, as other men have, although they cannot enjoy them here . . . no sane man will attempt to deny that the African upon his own soil has all the natural rights that instrument vouchsafes to all mankind

Judge Douglas has said to you that he has not been able to get from me an answer to the question whether I am in favor of Negro citizenship. . . . I tell him very frankly that I am not in favor of Negro citizenship

There is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race

We must not disturb slavery in the states where it exists, because the constitution, and the peace of the country, both forbid us

few, but an increasing number of men, who, for the sake of perpetuating slavery, are beginning to assail and to ridicule the white-man’s charter of freedom-the declaration that `all men are created free and equal

My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it

So just much of so-called American history is a lie? And how can we tell since this book represents a minority historical view?

The Neighbors (2012)

The Neighbors (2012, ABC)

S01E01: The green aliens are disguised as humans. The chief male alien is disguised as a European male and his wife is Afropean. They have two sons, one in an East Asian body and the other in a European body (top left in above pic) . The Afropean mother and East Asian son aliens are used as token non-European characters who will later embody ‘racial’ stereotypes which will be comedic effect for the Euro-American viewer. Here the trope is that even if non-human reptilian aliens outwardly embody a non-European, they will behave like the classic European derived stereotypes of respective non-Europeans. This episode was written by Dan Fogelman, a European Hebrew.

S01E03: The chief human male protagonist Marty Weaver (Lenny Venito) has a token Afropean male ‘buddy’ with no speaking lines. He does get to exhale loudly. The Afropean mother alien believes that a normal housewife behaves like the Real Housewives of New Jersey. She then acts like a sassy, opinionated African human female. This episode was also written by Dan Fogelman.

S01E05: The alien male son in an East Asian body dresses as a “slutty nurse” for Halloween. The European girl he likes describes him as an “Asian transgender” and he describes himself approvingly as an “exotic ladyboy.” Previously the impartial chief alien male protagonist states that China is more manly and for this reason is dominating America (S01E04). Thus the emasculation of the one (outwardly) Asian male character is used as an offset to Euro-American fears of being dominated by the Chinese. This episode and episode 4 were also written by Dan Fogelman.

UPDATE: 2012-11-23

S01E07: The alien in an East Asian body giggles like a girl (or effeminate male) and is then referred to by an alpha European male jock as a “foreign exchange friend,” complete with a stereotypical Asian bow. Later at a party, said jock tells East Asian alien in condescending ethnocentric language and form: “there are chips and American movies in the other room.” Written by Kristin Newman.
