Since Victoria opened the can of worms with her post yesterday on dropping outmarriage rates among Asian Americans, I thought I'd take the temperature yet again:
Should Asians be marrying outside of the race? How about outside of their ethnicities?
And yes, let's go there: are Asian American women ignoring perfectly serviceable Asian American men in favor of white men? Are Asian American men too conservative, or unwilling to broaden their dating horizons? Do white men who marry Asian women all have icky stereotypes in mind? Are Asian men the new trophy boyfriends (or just the old ones)? Is outmarriage better if it's to other people of color rather than whites, or does that make it worse? Is everybody too busy pointing the finger? Are we all just fetishists?
Some food for thought: Here's Hyphen's 2005 Sex Survey, with some innnnteresting info on how sexy Asians actually use race in the bedroom.
You know you have an opinion! It's not like this doesn't pop up at least twice a year, every year. So let's make this a clean fight, people:
No name calling, no insults, no cursing, no excessive passion, no straw men. Please speak from your own experience; no stereotyping! And no racism whatsoever will be tolerated.
Have at it!
