This is actually something I’ve been wanting to post about since it happened last week. Some of you are friends with me on Facebook and saw my April Fool’s prank where my friend Vigor and I pretended to be in a relationship. This is a comment left on my later post revealing the joke.
I’ve been refraining from writing about Andrew Fung of the Fung Brothers on a personal level since he and David DO do good stuff for the community through their videos and service in the San Gabriel Valley area (albeit with objectifying and sexist vieos). However, let this be a lesson to all you internet-savvy people: If your humor or entertainment act infringes on my personal life, it is fair game for public shaming.
Here in Tumblr we’ve talked about the problems within the Asian American community when it comes to dating. Specifically interracial dating. This is a prime example of a bitter Asian guy lashing out because of who I involve myself with and because I didn’t accept his advances. We see this in a lot of YouTube videos where male entertainers will complain about “the white man taking all our women” and attack women of color for “worshipping the white man”. We see this at UCLA where someone vandalized the Vietnamese Student Association’s office accusing Asian women of being sluts, whores, etc for liking white guys. I’ve personally been on the receiving end of guys talking about how Asian women “belong to them” and are their “~*territory*~”. Way to uphold heteronormative patriarchal systems, assholes.
I’ll be honest: I haven’t dated an Asian guy. But that’s related to countless factors that are in play, none of which are Andrew Fung’s business.
Sorry bro, just because I don’t like you doesn’t mean I don’t like Asian guys.
