Asians dating outside their race
More cynically, though, I suspect there’s an even deeper reason for many Asian women’s shunning of Asian men: Status.
I believe that many Asian women feel a sense that they are raising their social status by dating white men.
This status issue certainly isn’t helped at all by the unfair stereotype of Asian men as non-virile and sexually inept.
Some Asian women I’ve interacted with explain that they’re westernized, so they don’t relate well to traditionally-raised, Asian men. I’m not here to argue against someone’s personal dating preferences.
But, these women aren’t even letting me in their pool in the first place.
I’m the little Chinese kid standing outside, rattling the gate in envy as I watch all the other kids slipping and sliding around and having a splashing grand time.
and know just how much starch to add to your laundry …
In case you aren’t hip on your semi-offensive urban speak, a Twinkie is an Asian who acts white—that is, yellow on the outside, but white on the inside.
Of these women, I wanted to see what percentages A) specifically include Asian as one of their preferences, and B) specifically Asian as one of their preferences. Here are the results: announcing, “If you are an Asian guy, do not bother to contact me, because I will not date you.” Surprised by this admittedly less-than-scientific survey, I decided to scour the internet for any stats to corroborate or refute my findings.In fact, a disproportionate number of Asian women in my hometown only seem to date non-Asian men.At least, that’s what it’s felt like for years now.Older Americans are not as tolerant: About 55 percent of those ages 50 to 64 and just 38 percent of those 65 or older said they would not mind if a family member married someone of another race.Most people appear willing to date outside their race, but they still state preferences.
