    As far as white-guy/asian-girl pairings, I always thought it had to do with social status, like it was more prestigious for an asian girl to land a white boyfriend. Also, when I started seeing this get popular, there's also that whole genre of porn that caters to the folks who have an Asian-girl fetish. And what with porn having somewhat of a mainstream acceptance (at least in CA), the popularity of a given genre reflects the mentality of the populace which it caters to, and I think it feeds back that value to those in the same populace who don't already have it.

    I have to say, though… living in America, I don't normally see filipinos in positions of mainstream prominence. I've had some good filipino role models (mom and dad), but as far as what I see in mass culture it's all white, black, and increasingly hispanic. I know for myself, I will favor a white girl over an asian girl, as recent experience has taught me I simply tend to get along better with a white girl. Is it sad? Maybe, but that's just the way it is. Also, as far as numbers go, I'm more likely to meet a white girl outside of CA. There's only like a tiny handful of asians out here in Colorado Springs, and from what I've seen they're mostly korean females married to active or former military.

    And finally… I ain't passive. 😉

    Hey Lawrence,

    Long time reader, first time commenter. Funny you should mention the passive asian male complex. I often think that it's a function of asian males being more respectful and dutiful because of their cultural upbringing. Because asian males aren't snide, crass, and basically aren't asshole, they don't get the respect from American culture.

    Even now, asian females are rejecting the "typical" asian male. What the fuck? Where did everything go wrong here?

    I don't see myself as passive. But I do see myself as respectful and considerate. And maybe that looks passive in other people's eyes. But what are you gonna do?

    I hear that the worst demographic to be (in regards to dating) is the asian male demographic. The next worst is being an african american female.

    Whatever. America is all missing out. Everyone can go fuck themselves.

  3. Actually, I'd give the worst dating demographic award to Indian guys, who have it hard with white, asian, black, latin, AND indian girls. Funny story, one Indian guy I know bulked up to impress the white/asian girls, only to discover that more traditional Indian girls find muscles unattractively reminiscent of peasant labor. Go figure.

    Great to see ya drop by! =D
