Picture from “White Men Asian Women, “A website celebrating the unique attraction, relationships love and sex between white gentlemen and Asian ladies.”(sic) Go on, click on the link. I dare ya.
Out at The Deen on Saturday night, I made small talk with two Aussie dudes who had wildly opposite opinions about Asian women. And mind you, these conversations were in a club and were fueled by alcohol. What they said were sexist and misogynistic. I didn’t correct their misconceptions or whatever, I just listened. Their statements are not logical or factual, and these two guys do not represent all white dudes. So take a deep breath, and hold back the pitch forks and flames.
With that out of the way …
Guy #1 was at the bar and proceeded to show me and Simon a picture of him and his Asian girlfriend.
Me: Hmm, pretty. She Chinese, Japanese or … ?
Guy #1: Chinese. I only f*ck Asian girls. I’ve only ever f*ck one white girl.
Me: Why’s that?
Guy #1: White girls are all about themselves in bed. Asian girls like to make you happy.
Me: But you’ve only been with one white girl …
Guy #1: *didn’t hear me* And, Asian girls may seem quiet outside but they are freaks in bed.
Me: Very nice. High-5! (hey the conversation was already ridiculous, a Borat impression now wasn’t out a place )
Guy #2 works for a mining company in Kalgoorlie and is in Perth on his rotating leave (2 weeks on, 1 week off). It’s a gold-mining town with a population size of 30000. I’ve never been there myself but I’m imagining that the only Asian women there are the ones working in the Chinese restaurants or in the famous brothels on Hay Street. Incidentally, Simon was born in Kalgoorlie.
Guy #2: So I’m seeing this Chinese girl in Kalgoorlie.
Me: Yeah? How did you meet her?
Guy #2: In a Chinese restaurant.
Me: Of course, of course.
Guy #2: She’s boring though.
Me: Oh yeah? Why’s that?
Guy #2: She doesn’t like going out.
Me: So she doesn’t like drinking then?
Guy #2: Nope – she likes hot chocolate.
Me: Hahah. Sorry, that was funny. And what, every time that you see her you are at home?
Guy #2: Yup.
Me: Well, look at it this way. At least she’s low maintenance.
Guy #2: I’ll drink to that.
