What the fuck?!?!
Hello dear reader(s)!
The year was 2009, I had just began dating my lovely, beautiful wife (who for sake of reference, is not Asian, and was not my wife at the time) and she had come into the coffee shop where I was Barista-ing for the first time. Of course, (wanting to show her off), I introduced her to my co-worker type friends.
All were very nice and polite to her and I was very pleased. I got many comments on how lovely she was, and how sweet and kind she was. And none of my female co-workers were catty to her in any way. And then Nicole said,
“I thought you would be more into Asian girls.”
“What did you say?” I gasped.
“Hmmm, I always thought of you as the kind of guy who would be more into Asian girls.”
I think I spit out some of the special white mocha I had made for myself. What? What in the fucking fuck did she just say to me?
So I asked, “What do you mean by that?”
“Well you know, you just seem like one of the guys who is into Asian girls.”
This wasn’t a jealousy thing, Nicole wasn’t Asian (that I am aware of), but for some reason she associated me as someone who would be “into Asian girls”.
I like Asian women just fine. I’ve met some Asian females that I thought were attractive, but into Asian girls? As a thing? An identifiable trait in me somehow suggested to her that I have a fetish for Asian girls?
Now, I know that people do have Asian girl fetishes. There are fetishes for just about anything and everything. My ex-wife worked at a porn/sex-toy shop at one point in our relationship. I know that people are into things that you don’t even want to know about. People fetishize race, height, feet, fluids, things that shall not be named, including Lord Vol- oops, I almost said it!
Not saying you have to have a fetish for Asian girls to find Asian girls attractive. But it was her choice of words and what she said. How exactly can you look at someone like me, and think, “That guy over there, he is into Asian girls.”
What is the criteria one uses for determining they are into Asian girls?
Is it my
- coffee making skills
- taste in music
- choice of words
- body language
- eye color
- the vehicle I drive
- work uniform
Seriously? I’d like to know.
Even when I would spend time in the porn shop during my wife’s shifts, (safety reasons) the only ways you could tell what someone was into is if
- They asked about something.
- They went over to a specific section.
- They chose one of two specific “viewing booths”. (“The diggers”, creating and re-opening the glory hole.)
Okay, of course, they could try entering the place with a long trench coat, and if they had bare ankles you could tell they were into something else, and if not you could likely tell they were into shoplifting. Aside from that, there was just no way to tell.
Did I ever show up to work, previous to the introduction of Hannah wearing a t-shirt that said, Asian girls make me horny? Did I ever bring in Kobe Tai DVDs for break time viewing?
So I just want to know, if you lovely reader(s) don’t mind, knowing what you know about me, and seeing a picture of me, what exactly would make you think that I look like I’d be into Asian girls?
