    Exactly.
    I answered a question which had been raised and the reason has to do with stereotypes.
    I did not say that the stereotypes were justified, merely that they exist.

    He is just being his usual drama queen.

    I remember a documentary on all Asian American male actors who have acted in Hollywood movies - and they came out in the open on how they are stereotyped and marginalised. One of the actors even revealed how in one movie, the East Asian male hero had to 'die' in the story to make way for a white hero to bring the movie to an 'acceptable' end.

    East Asian women have always been seen as objects of desire and you don't need hollywood for that. Most American news channels have quietly worked up this East Asian News Dolly image for people to be glued to their news. Any mass media student would concur with me !

    On the other hand, just like Afro American cinema, there is a huge undercurrent of Asian American cinema that has not surfaced, nor been enouraged by the big studios. I just wish, the stereotypes were bashed by Asians who start casting themselves for these roles.. but that's too utopian.

    Yet more personal attacks. :lol:

    Very typical. You can't argue to save your own life, so of course you always resort to personal attacks.

    That's not a personal attack.
    It is describing your tendency to find offence where none exists.

    You don't seem to understand how sociological studies function to explain people's behavior. The piece linked proposes explanations for an observed social phenomenon.

    Your comprehension skills fail yet again. :lol:

    Two personal attacks in a row:

    Are you able to read the things that you type?

    No, it is perfectly apropos to describe your reactions as a drama queen, since you're keen to find offence where none exists.

    Let me illustrate by example:

    If you said that harassment of Muslims is due to negative stereotypes, then it would be a correct statement. It does NOT mean that the harassment is justified, but the existence of stereotypes is a fact (albeit an unfair one).

    Similarly, if someone says that Asian men are seen in a particular way due to stereotypes, then it is a fact, regardless of the fact that the stereotypes may be unfair.

    To point out that certain stereotypes exist is not tantamount to validating them.

    Yet another personal attack. Well done. :cheers:

    That is three in a row now.

    You see how this thread went from positive to negative, just from your arrival.

    Developereo once posted a thread called "Why China will choose India over Pakistan".

    And his goal here seems to be to prove his original theory correct, by getting into flame wars with Chinese members.

    If I had to guess, it would be because Developereo himself is a Gujarati originally from India. That would explain a lot. :P

    not really, the drama-queen theory holds far more validity

    Doubtful.

    As are your own claims of having a "Chinese wife" while laughing at the Chinese women who were mass raped during WW2. :no:
