Thanks for all your comments on my last post. For anyone who didn’t yet read it, here it is: Asian Girl Dating Choices Part I
I first saw this article on someone’s Facebook page. I noticed a lot of comments and a strong reaction. I wanted to get a debate “conversation” going with you guys and I thought this would be a good article to elicit some emotions.
I have mixed emotions and several thoughts about this article. Remember, this is an English learning website and we should be able to respectfully agree or disagree with each other. I don’t expect everyone to share my views, but at least they will help your English.
First of all, I think this girl was trying to make a popular article. Any writer knows that if you write something more controversial, something that will make people more emotional, you will get more readers. I don’t believe she wouldn’t date an Asian man in real life, if she found the perfect guy. Who knows, maybe her heart just got broken, maybe she had a few bad experiences, maybe Asian men don’t really like her. Maybe she’s jealous of other Asian women who are physically better looking. I don’t know, but I can imagine many possibilities.
One thing I find a bit “funny” is that some people find it so offensive. Here is my point. If a white guy said, “I only like dating Asian girls because they are sweet and pretty” it would be the most boring article in the world. No one would be talking about it. People would think, “ya, that’s normal. Lot’s of white guys are like that”. No one would think that the white man is a racist to white girls. No one would think he’s got serious emotional and self esteem problems. People would just think, “so what, he likes Asian chicks”.
So my question is, “Why is it any different that an Asian girl wrote that”? What is so interesting about that? She is allowed to date whoever she wants. We all are.
People are treating this girl like she’s an emotional psycho. It’s not like she’s super hateful and wants to kill or hurt anyone. She just seems to be happy dating certain people based on her experience. AND… She’s probably making decent money at writing emotional blogs that people read.
I’d love to hear your thoughts guys. (Please don’t get angry with me if you disagree. I’m the least racist person ever. I’m just playing devil’s advocate and want to give you guys a place to practice debating and arguing in English) I’m very curious to hear what you think of these opinions. Please share with your friends too and let’s get more people writing and discussing stuff.
