And it’s understandable why they would reference these statistics.Many people think that Asian Men have no problems in the dating market , and often when we talk about our experiences, no one listens to us assuming that we are just ”.
The simple “numbers” explanation, such as that given by Kira, was belied by other reasons offered; for most of the women, not surprisingly, t Stereotypes do have a legitimate effect on the relationships that Asian Men are a part of. In contrast to the women who frequently alluded to the nerdy qualities of Asian males as reasons for these men’s undesirability, interracially married Asian American men in my study rarely mentioned explicitly the physical shortcomings of Asian females as reasons for not marrying or dating them.Despite what people may say , or excuses that may be brought up , the hegemonic masculinity that is a part of American society , and it’s penalties on Asian men affect the real lives of Asian men. However, men who grew up finding non-Asian women, especially white ethnic women, more desirable did tend to elevate white females as paragons of ideal femininity in terms of physical appearance, and even personality and character.Although you may not think so , media projects an image that influences those watching.What influences both sexes to marry inter racially?Data from: Asian American women marry out at 36% versus that of 16% for Asian men. 7% for whites ( M/F) , 25%/12% for blacks ,and 54%/61% for American Indians. In the 2017 study , the intermarriage rates has now changed. These out marriage rates and statistics only give half the picture though; they do not quantify how difficult it is for an Asian man to actually land a white girl.
Now 21% of Asian men intermarry , while 36% of Asian women intermarry , which represents a 5% increase and a 1% decrease among the respective genders. We can talk all day about our personal experiences and stupid “field reports” for all the PUA’s out there, but at the end of the day all of this is subjective.Those of us who deny the fact that this hegemonic masculinity exists tend to compensate for their denial by not believing in stereotypes , or that the stereotype would apply to themselves , believing that they are Then there are those who believe in compensation.These individuals are highly assimilated individuals who see themselves as people who were above the hegemonic masculinity , who were not part of the negative Asian male stereotype , i.e.) not believing that racism exists.often take for granted how bad Asian males have it in the dating market in the West, particularly in North America.Many cite the response rates from the OKCupid studies, and also refer to our own subjective personal experiences.A man who is 5 feet 6 inches tall, for example, needs an additional 5,000 to be as desirable as a man who is approximately 6 feet tall (the median height in our sample) and who makes ,500 per year.
