In light of what that racist douchebag Steve Harvey said on his show recently, I feel compelled to repost and expand upon one of my first entries into my blog. It is deeply disappointing when one POC shits on another, or worse, a whole race. Pictured above are honorary members of my F.A.A.M. aka Fine Ass Asian Men.
One of the most strident racial dichotomies I've ever seen is the difference between how Asian women and Asian men are perceived sexually. My sisters and I are exoticized, eroticized, and fetishized whereas my brothers are castrated, emasculated, and ridiculed. And I find both infuriating.
I dated a non-Asian man some years back and one day he stated very cavalierly "Oh, come on, Sophia, everyone knows that no thinks Asian men are sexy--Asian women tell me that!" Yo, I stopped dead in my tracks and said "What did you just say?! You do realize that I am Korean and the father of my children is Chinese, right?" I don't think he had any idea that he had just stepped on an IED of his own manufacture and clumsy placement.
I was tight as fuck. I don't care if someone has a racial preference, but for anyone to write off a whole race as being unattractive on behalf of the rest of the world if an offense punishable by a swift sidekick to the temple. The argument ended with me pounding my chest and saying "You tell any of those Asian bitches to come and say that shit to my face." I have thrown down the same gauntlet to Steve Harvey. #raisedbywutang
I've been happy to learn that a number of my girlfriends in their 20s are very attracted to Asian men. Maybe there's a change in the air? I certainly hope so. Asian men are fine, sexy, and manly. Open your minds and eyes. Don't believe the hype.
