In her piece, she talks about her perspective as an Asian American woman. She argues that Asian women often don’t see Asian men as invisible, but instead often see us as evil or take us less seriously than other groups. She also mentions that the same thing takes place with the IR issues. Asian men aren’t seen as protectors of Asian women. 🙂 It was good to hear this perspective from an Asian American woman, and it’s great to find some common ground in this debate. So it isn’t that Asian women believe the crazy villain stereotypes of Asian men; it’s that we don’t necessarily see them as protective over us, and so subliminally it’s easier for us to buy into the overt stereotypes, or worse yet, generate them, and then proceed to ignore and dismiss the rational straight Asian men who challenge those stereotypes. Heterosexual Asian American guys deal with the Invisible Chain and are pretty much just doing it ourselves. And before anyone can do a doubletake on the logical fallacies there, we got the waves of APA women feminists who reinforce the villain archetype with narrative after narrative of straight APA men who fail to protect women, because whether or not we realize what it is we’re doing (**), at the heart of it that’s what women want: men to be protective. They are the more marginalized and thus if there is any work left for activists to do, it would be to seek a dynamic equilibrium between the APA sexes. Gay Asian stuff sells well these days because of the White male connection. Lots of these people have their eye on the wrong ball. She writes: “Straight APA men are not a part of any white-backed movement and as a result, do not have any affiliations, sympathies, or mainstream support. Kingstonism sold well during the 70’s because Asian American feminists were tied to White feminism (and most Asian American feminists only dated White guys). No, not the disease you can pick up when travelling to certain countries.
