harry knowles is a big fat idiot

Ugh. A recent article by Harry Knowles over at popular movie movie website Ain't It Cool News, talking about the recent casting of Simon Pegg as Scotty in the new Star Trek movie, opens with a terrible joke: "Simon Pegg as Scotty is as wonderful as an Asian Girl Sandwich night." I'm not even entirely sure what that means. But it's stupid. And sexist. And a completely unnecessary choice of words. Why? Why bother? It's such a throwaway joke at the expense, yet again, of Asian women perceived as sexual objects. Even worse—food to be consumed. And it has absolutely nothing to do with what geek-ass Harry is talking about. That's racist!
