Asian Male Stereotypes Complicate My Love Life

http://www.thebolditalic.com/articles/4500-asian-male-stereotypes-complicate-my-love-life

Asian men aren’t inherently less attractive, less virile, or less valiant, so I can’t fathom why such notions are widely accepted as truth. The fact that they’re not even questioned by otherwise curious, intelligent people doesn’t just boggle my mind, it infuriates me.

Because it is contributing to a cycle of racism that flies under the radar. Because it chips away at my Asian brothers’ sense of self-worth that’s been degraded for no other reason than being Asian. Because it perpetuates misunderstandings about my own relationship.
