Writes Chen: the dating prospects of Asian females and non-Asian males alike.
By promoting the “creepy [white] man with Asian fetish” stereotype in public discourse, we Asian women are shooting ourselves in the foot.
In the areas of California where I grew up, where Asians range from 20 to 50% of the student population, a college-age male would have to make an active effort to exclude Asian females from their dating pool. But by constantly projecting this idea that men who specifically like Asian women are creepers, we risk making otherwise decent, respectable guys avoid dating Asian girls for fear of being labeled a creeper — Now, I admit it — it’s been about 13 years since I’ve gone doggy-paddling around in the dating pool.
But is this really a concern for all the single Asian ladies out there?
To send samples to Keck-CCAMS at the UC Irvine for analysis, the following steps are required: Submitters, and in particular those making their first application, must make contact with the laboratory to discuss their requirements prior to actually submitting samples.

A hard copy of both must also accompany the samples. laboratory is currently equipped to handle routine processing of charcoal, wood, seed, carbonates, animal remains, etc.
blogger Vivienne Chen wrote an article — So, He Likes You Because You’re Asian — which quickly made the rounds around Facebook.
The basic thesis of the article is that there’s nothing particularly racist about a non-Asian man who exclusively dates Asian women.
Moorcroft Royal Warrant Paper label transferred to Walter Moorcroft in 1946 and stating ‘By Appoinment Potters To The Late Queen Mary’.
These pieces are only ever sold at discounted prices in the Moorcroft factory shop.

It’s not real racism, asserts Chen, but the kind of silly mundanity more deserving of our bemusement than our wrath.
Further, thinks Chen, it’s us Asian women who stand to lose by calling this behaviour out as racist. Never has an article made me want to gnash my teeth and rip out my hair more.
