Ok, here goes. Was checking out your site as I usually do, and I saw the plug for your new website. Being the ever-so-curious-bad-little-monkey that I am, I clicked on a name and to my surprise, although it shouldn’t have been by now, I was presented with monkey.gif. Nice work! I’m sure you’ve gotten a god awful large amount of emails on this by now, so I won’t bother you further. Anyways, keep up the good work. Love the site, cam-girlish or not. In case you don’t have it, or haven’t seen it, I enclosed a picture of one of the A&F shirts they pulled. Found it on the Associated Press newswire.

Monkey? That must’ve been Solo’s doing. Or maybe you just have a shitty ISP. Actually, to tell you the truth, i have no idea why that happened. I personally haven’t had any encounters with no monkeys. Are you sure you saw one? Weird. Oh and you’re also pretty much the only person who has e-mailed me about this mysterious monkey.

Either way, everybody should be able to access the celeb site now. There’re over 12600+ (!!!) pics on there for you to browse through. Oh and if you link to it and give it a coupla hits, you might even be linked back on it! And maybe it’ll give you back some hits as a result! Nifty ain’t it?

Anyhow, back to the matter at hand.

Actually… i don’t have much else to say really. Except that i really want that A&F Wong shirt.

It’s funny!

  5. Here’s what’s offensive. Me having to explain this to someone of asian descent. So let this cracka try.

    I’m guessing that this isn’t offensive to you, because you’re fairly educated and don’t think of the average asian as just another laundry monkey. Fine. But, to the "less" educated this just falls in line with, "Look at ‘dem slant eyed fellas, they sure know them sheets". Absurd? Trust me, no. Admittedly ignorant, yes, but I’ve seen it. So, shirts putting forth that stereotype are obviously bad. What’s worse if you don’t speak up about it this sort of behavior will continue to be tolerated. I am the last human being to feign offense at the mundane, but in this case I think its needed. Just like I’m SICK of seeing commercials where men are portrayed as the stereotypically, "Dumb Dad", or "Silly, stupid, husband/man", where the "mom/wife/daughter" rolls their eyes, and goes, "Gee, Dad…don’t you know anything". Were these commercials shot with the gender roles reversed NOW would be laying siege to washington. Were they shown with any minority, the same would be true. But since its "just men" – its ok.

    Anyhow, back to funny minority shirts. How about having Abercrombie and Fitch do a second series featuring blacks picking cotton, with some idiotic byline. Funny, huh? Not. We both know THAT would NEVER have passed the "censors" at Abercrombie and Fitch…
