Another one of those real life stories. Haystack, CA. Table of 8: 3 South Asians, 2 Koreans, 1 Latino, 1 White Guy, and AzN. Happy Hour. Scene:
South Asian guy’s cured meat plate comes out
Korean Girl 1: Oh My God! I love cured meats!
White guy’s cured meat plate comes out
Korean Girl 1: Oh My God! You got cured meats too!
White Guy: I knew you’d like them. All Asian girls love cured meat.
AzN drops his knife onto his pants.
Korean Girl 1: What?
White Guy: I know what Asian girls like cause I’ve liked Asian girls from since I could remember.
Latino guy stops dranking his drank mid-drank
Korean Girl 1: Oh Mah Gawd! This guy has an Asian Fetish!
White Guy: Yea, I grew up in North Fremont, so I had a lot of Asian friends and I’ve always liked the girls.
Awkward silence from the whole table.
White guy eventually leaves early when he realizes he just offended the entire sub-continent and continent of Asia.
Seriously guys, if you have a fetish, any kind of fetish, don’t mention it to the fetishized. And its great that you’re aware of your fetish, but work on thinking of people as people first, and not as a fetish first. Cause when you start thinking of Asian women as people first, as in the future mother of your children and sister-in-law to your brothers/sisters, then you’ll be on the same playing field. Cause Asian women don’t always walk around in geisha costumes or report the news all sexy. They’re my moms, my aunts, my cousins, and my friends. And when Asian girls aren’t in your MCB class scoring A’s or in line for lattes at the cafe, they’re doing stupid things this and still hot (to Asian guys at least):
