There 's A New Sheriff In Town

You know how it feels to be a girl, but with the mind of a boy? It's the same as being an Oriental with an education of a Tây/Farang. You're always on the outside looking in. You want to belong, but you don't know where and no "side" will really accept you anyway, cause you speak like whitey but you look like a gook...

It must be really frustrating to be Hillary Clinton, so smart and so knowledgeable, and having to deal with morons who can hardly hide their contempt for her, simply because they have a dick and that makes them superior in this world.

When my father first came to Canada from Vietnam, he was too old and too non-white to get a decent job. So he ended up being an usher in a movie theatre. He would tell us about his work, how he was surrounded by pipsqueaks who would push him around and bully him to get the best shifts or the best floor (the lower ones). Once, he told me : "They laugh at my French, but they don't even know who Pasteur was!"

Why am I telling you all this? Oh yeah... There's a new sheriff in town and she kicks butts!! This new hero is an autistic girl who learned martial arts by watching Tony Jaar in Ong Bak and Tom Yum Kung. I know! How cool is it!!! Here's the trailer:

Her name is Yanin "Jeeja" Vismistananda.
