Example text

While transnational sex work is of concern to health-system planners and those concerned with workers’ rights, the West’s admission to this form of colonial intercourse rationalizes the more organized state and corporate forms of domination. By representing Asia as feminized, as victimized in the one domain of global regulation (sexuality) within which the West still feels confident of its moral benevolence, the West can ignore the global flows of capital Migratory Vices  that offer women jobs just as deadly or dead-end as their participation in the transnational sex trade.

As I have illustrated in an article on the culture of Japanese imperialism, when the martial spirit of the Japanese was at issue, the West and Euro-American cultural productions were cast as feminine and feminizing, in the ‘‘bad’’ sense of unmanly and emasculating. Contrarily, the nation was personified as feminine, in the ‘‘good’’ sense of traditional, when the superior cultural sensibility and artistic achievements of the Japanese were publicized (Robertson , ). 8 The press propagated a negative definition of the New Woman, describing her as ‘‘an indulgent and irresponsible young Japanese woman who used her overdeveloped sexuality to undermine the family and to manipulate others for her own selfish ends’’ (Sievers , ).

Media reports suggested that uncontrollable elements propel the Asian sex trade: ‘‘foreign’’ men’s sex drive and the culture of poverty that drives men and women to sell their bodies to ‘‘foreigners,’’ indeed, to queers. Place, or rather, location in an alterity, is so fundamental to this discourse that many ethicists accept the argument that placebo control vaccine studies in Asia are ethical.
