Hi everyone Everytime I go outside, I can see many foreign guys with a Chinese girlffriend, but I never see any foreign women with a Chinese boyfriend.
"I understand that in the West, we have the disgusting narrative of the foreign Asian girl who acts as a catalyst for a white man’s spiritual journey — but, please, in real life they’re not here to grind on you under artsy pink lighting in an apartment in Japan," Wong writes.
"They’re not going to lead you down busy Tokyo streets and smile enigmatically at you, and they’re not a plot device for your sick story." "They’re not ‘real life anime characters’, and they’re not all ‘good little sheltered girls,’" Wong continues.
But while many see no issue with it, more than a few Asian women find it deeply frustrating.
In a recent article titled ‘I hope you die from yellow fever’, Caressa Wong pulls no punches.
Men seem to date Korean women more seriously, and whether the man is foreign or Korean doesn't matter."If you’ve gotten to a point where all your suitors are coming at you because they’ve decided to stuff you into their ‘little Asian wife’ box, then it starts to hurt.A lot." "I’m Chinese, and if you think that dating, say, a Korean or Filipino person somehow ‘qualifies’ you to be my significant other, then you really have to pay more attention to anything you might’ve learned while being with that person at all," Wong writes."Of course white people are capable of having good intentions and being innocuous, but there’s a part of me that’s been socially conditioned to question if they see me or just sees an Asian girl." For Asian women, the apparent attraction to their background can often be based on stereotypes which can be both racist and sexist.Internet chat rooms are full of often-offensive discussions about just what makes 'Asian women' so desirable for men – from being good with money to being good in bed.
