The annual Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is here! Which means, for all of you single hetero dudes out there, Valentine’s Day is today. And pretty much every day hereafter, considering there are 17 models in the issue, and about 40 pictures of each of them in the online edition, which, if you mete out your intake of it, should last you through the apocalypse of 2012, and then some.
The 2011 Swimsuit Issue features two hapa hotties (ha-tties?): Jessica Gomes, an Australian native of Portuguese and Chinese descent, and Chrissy Teigen, a Utahan who’s Thai and Norwegian.

Google has blacklisted a list of terms for users of Google Instant, to prevent people from accidentally stumbling upon porn, violence, and hate speech, unless they really want their porn, violence, and hate speech. Basically what this means is that Google Instant’s autofill function won’t fill in words like “bisexual,” “Latina,” “gay men,” “rapping women”–for the violent and spelling-impaired–or “n*gger,” so if you’re actually searching using those terms, you have to hit “enter” in order to get your results. Included among these terms–some of which seem incredibly innocuous, like “are” and “meats”–is “asian babe.”
Which makes sense, given that when you search “asian babe,” you get a whole lotta this:
And a whole lotta, um, that:

We’ll be the first ones to say that there’s something slightly creepy about grown women being cheerleaders. It’s a little bit like grown women wanting to be princesses–yes, we’re talking to you, Bridezillas–like indulging a girlhood fantasy way past its sell-by date.
That said, cheerleading, at least the face of it, has changed a lot since we were kids. Cheerleading squads, especially in professional sports, have become increasingly more diverse. In the NFL, it’s rare these days to see an all-white squad, and about one-third of the teams have at least one Asian cheerleader. (My Cowboys, however, do not. Boo, Jerry Jones. Boo.) And because football and cheerleading are national birthrights, this is progress. It’s like people are finally starting to see that Asian is American, too.
To celebrate this change, we present to you our Top 5 NFL Cheerleader Draft Picks (click on their names to see more photos and full bios):

Happy birthday to Olivia Munn, who turns 27 today!
Did we mention she’s Playboy‘s cover girl this month? There are 14 pics of Olivia in her birthday suit (almost) that weren’t published in the magazine that you can see on Playboy‘s website. Right now. For free.
So it’s kinda like her birthday and your birthday, too.
Hails from: Japan
Occupation: Professional tennis player
Why She’s a Babe: Because Kimiko came out of a 12-year retirement from tennis last year to compete again professionally. And at 38 years old, she’s typically playing opponents half her age. At 5’4″, 117 lbs.–of compact, tightly-ripped muscle–she’s also taking on players who are way bigger and faster than they were back in her day. That takes–no pun intended–balls. And ballsy play–even when you lose in the first round of Wimbledon–is hot.
Hails from: Hong Kong
Why She’s a Babe: Despite being a billioneiress–her father is casino tycoon Stanley Ho–this ho works, and she works it double-time as both a singer and an actor. And she’s something of a rebel, defying her Hardass Asian Dad’s wishes by becoming an entertainer. And on February 27, Josie will be making her American film debut as bad girl Cantana in the totally retro, live-action Street Fighter movie, starring other babelicious ladies Kristin Kreuk and Moon Bloodgood.
I bonded with Phil (aka Angry Asian Man) this weekend over the decades we’ve spent crushing on Tamlyn Tomita. For me, Tamlyn is forever Kumiko from Karate Kid II, her film debut, with all of that wispy hair and that worried, downturned, but oh-so-pretty mouth. I’m pretty sure she’s the first Asian girl movie character I ever saw get the boy–albeit a skinny wuss who got his ass beat 12 times across three acts until the last 10 frames of the movie, but whatevs. Tamlyn has a Manchurian Candidate kind of effect on me, wherein I see her lovely face and then I break into an awful rendition of “The Glory of Love” that would most likely get me killed in Borneo.
Last night, Tamlyn had a cameo on the show we love to hate, Heroes, where she played Hiro’s mother, who dies when he’s a young child. And she looked goooooood. So good, in fact, that her playing the wife of George Takei seemed really creepy, as though George’s character had actually robbed the cradle. Tamlyn…what’s your secret, gurl?
Happy birthday to Paul

Hails from: Malaysia
Occupation: Olympic jumper
Why She’s a Babe: You’d think that Malaysia’s former triple jumping champion would see leaping as old hat after so many years of competition–but with her tiny frame and long, lanky limbs, she looks happy as a cricket soaring through the air on each attempt. We love her bouncy step, perky smile, and in-the-air flair. Who knew field athletes could be so darn cute?
Hails from: India
Why She’s a Babe: Well, for one thing, Riya seems to be Salman Rushdie’s latest conquest. We know–ewwww–but, like it or not, that bald, ancient, fatwa-incurring troll is a bona fide babe magnet. And, for another, the Bollywood actress is aggressively cheesy, mining all the tired sexpot cliches in her photos, and yet there’s no denying that even when she’s rocking a fug unitard and an almost-imperceptible camel toe or giving her awesomely corny fuck me-face, we still want to claw her wide-set eyes out because she’s so durn purty.
Hails from: Austin, Texas, bitches
Occupation: Austin City Council Member
Why She’s a Babe: Cuz Council Members aren’t supposed to look like that. Because Kim is half-Korean and half-Chinese, reprzent!, and the first Asian-American elected to that position. And because when Jen saw her on CNN at the Texas Democratic Debate last week, she was, like, “Damn, how did Ming-Na get time away from managing a boy band to talk politics?!?”
Kim is up for a tough re-election in May. She is not well-liked in Austin, and several critics have called her “arrogant.” We don’t doubt it, and, oh, who the fuck cares?
Name: Kazu Makino
Occupation: Lead singer of Blonde Redhead
Why She’s a Babe: Cuz she’s a gazelle, with legs up to here, making the rest of us look short and stumpy, yet we still love her. Cuz her voice is dreamy and otherworldly. And because she’s a lady who rocks.
