this week in Asian: I'm too sexy… or am I?

While Maxim has released a list of the five un-sexiest women in the world, Entertainment Weekly is publishing their 25 hottest women ever. Both lists, when examined, seem to agree that any hint of ethnicity (except from a few Latinas) is not sexy. Via the always-excellent Jezebel:

In fact, of EW’s twenty-five “Ultimate Hotties,” the only ethnic ones are Latina: Half-Bolivian Raquel Welch, Mexican Salma Hayek, half-Mexican Jessica Alba, and half-Spanish Rita Hayworth. What about Rachel Weisz? Angela Bassett? Lucy Liu? Or, really, anyone who doesn’t inspire girls to ask for nose jobs, $300 highlights or eyelid-surgery for their sweet sixteens?
