Racism of east asian women interracial dating white men
Never mind the fact that Romero has conveniently left out other relationships that don’t fit the heteropatriarchy.There are whole relationships in our community that don’t include a man and a woman.It would be awesome if other big websites would go out on a limb and release their own race data, too. Here are just a handful of the numbers that illustrate that: The takeaway here is that although race shouldn’t matter in messaging, it does. First of all, how do we know that race shouldn’t matter?
Clara Mae, @ubeempress, noted in a series of tweets the various issues Asian American women face regarding domestic abuse, suicide rates & mental health, the gendered pay gap, and body image.
And if Asian men finally get the status that we want them to have, it means reminding them that that still does not mean that they are entitled to Asian women.
And lastly, this idea that “Asian women just don’t want to admit that they have a white guy fetish” grossly takes away any form of agency from the Asian woman.
Regardless of Romero’s intentions, I think it is important to unpack as to why these are the types of people that were empowered by her article.
At the root of it, what Romero said was misogynist because it puts the blame on something white supremacy created on Asian women.
