I’m a bit surprised at men’s openness to interracial dating.While I’ve personally dated women across the racial spectrum, I’ve only had a handful of clients who ever expressed preferences for women of other races.In her exposé, Charlton interviews casting director and star of the web series Model Files Preston Chaunsumlit (whose mother is Filipino and whose father is Chinese Thai) on the subject.When asked why Black women and Asian men find themselves in the predicament of being considered undesirable in the fashion industry (and overall), Chaunsumlit answers: In terms of casting, it's harder for Black women to get those jobs and it's hard for Asian men to get those jobs because it's a question of, "Are they considered attractive? " A lot of the times they're only presented in ways in which they're "otherized." Chaunsumlit also believes these trends in the fashion industry (and possibly in overall media) affects society as a whole.Years ago, I read that Asian men are also less likely to marry non-Asian women, and are also less likely to be married overall.In an article titled The Unmarriables: Why Black Women and Asian Men Should Date, Lauretta Charlton explores why Black women and Asian men, who seem to be less chosen, should get to choosing each other.One acquaintance told me in wonderment that Chinese women are great in the bedroom – as if I wasn't one – to being casually asked if I’d be interested in a guy “who has been with Chinese girls and likes it”.I’ve been left puzzled by the insensitivity, and the lack of awareness that such comments may cause offence.
Money quote: The researchers found that most women speed daters said yes (meaning they’d like to see a man again after the four-minute speed date) less often to men of another race than they did to men of their own race.The cause of women’s rights must be won through women’s own efforts. If we allow women’s rightful role to be imposed by men, we are renouncing our freedom; and if we allow ourselves to look up to men and ingratiate ourselves to them, whatever rights we obtain in this way are handed to us from above.As we continued to be instrumentalized and remain men’s appendages, we would be liberated in name only and our rights could never really be our own.We have not risen to the level of self-consciousness. Not only do we fall easy prey to men’s manipulation, we also pay homage to them. — “On the Question of Women’s Liberation” He-Yin Zhen (1907)Translation from The Birth of Chinese Feminism: Essential Texts in Transnational Theory, eds.
