This is rather a straight forward question and not a rhetoric as what you think it is. This question is addressed to Anne Gus' blog ”Asian Women need to stop dating white men”
First and foremost, I get you Anne, I understand that there might be a possibility of loosing all your white men to your sisters which is apparently black haired and more yellow-hued, namely the Asian women,because they are more pleasant, which in your view is rather patriarchal and someway racist. Which tells us that we are more dependent on the masculinity of the males. Now let me just stop you right there, let me just let you know that as a ”young cultured woman” that you claimed to be, you know very little of the background of feminism in Asia. Maybe you have not heard of Malala Yousafzai, who has been an inspiration to all as she detailed her life under Taliban rule and campaigned for education for girls in a country where only 12% of women and girls are literate. What about Corazon Aquino who was the first female president in Asia or Aung San Suu Kyi who was house arrested after pursuing the power of women in her country. These are just some examples of the Asian women whom you addressed to be submissive. Based on the biographies that I have read about all these Asian women, they are not so submissive as what you say they are. Let me clear to you, that indeed Asian women are more keen and conservative. Shall I say we are not that much liberated in our actions, however we are educated and taught when and how to stand up for our opinions and views. We may not be that kind of white girls going around on short skirts, fancy make ups and all that glitter because we respect our womanhood. That we don’t need to get laid just to have someone to love (which I can say is very common in your area).
You are also talking much about patriarchy, but by the way I understand your post, it was you who is in need of much attention from men. And I don’t see any connection of that, with telling my co-Asians to stop dating white men. I believe that we are living in a world where we are given right to our own will. Based on what we perceive is right, by which is not against God’s law and the law of men. And I believe I have not read any of those which states that an inter-racial relationship should not be made. Just because some white girl, such as you, is not having that attention from men. So let me say that back at you ”Like, OMG? Do you realize how rude that is to Asian Women?”
Another thing, I don’t understand where you get the idea of your ”yellow fever” thing do you even know what you are talking about? I don’t think you even know the origin of such disease. Just an advice though, before you talk about something, be sure you have a good source on that. By the way, I don’t know if an artist or a celebrity exists with a name of Bruce Chan, however I do know of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan.
And maybe you will ask, why do I give such care about your article? Because I am an Asian and I am happily in a relationship with a white guy. A guy who respects and loves me for who I am. Who understands my stubbornness and is very patient with my ridiculously annoying attitude of being dominant. Who sees me as I am. And not even a fan of HENTAI. So I don’t think none of what you say is true.
Now before I go, I leave this to you, If you are indeed an advocate of feminism as what you say you are, I don’t think attacking your co women in such manner is helpful. Everything you said is just down right degrading. Not only to us Asians (e,g They are such an eyesore that I wish they would just put a big fat trigger warning on themselves, or just like wear one of those blankets that women from the Mid-East wear, jihads, or whatever, and cover up completely.), but also to your own race. You response to seeing an inter racial relationship only highlights how shallow your society perceive is scarily discriminating.
No, there is no such thing as mandarin madness, love comes in all colors, white, brown, yellow or black. Everybody is the same. Everybody has the right to be loved and to love whoever they desire. Regardless of race or color of skin. I hope this gives you some insight on what culture really means. Have a great life ahead and good luck with your soul searching, but be sure you don’t end up with ”kinda short and nerdy and not very hot”guy. ;)
