In order to speak from your high horse for such a long time without your ass getting sore; you need a saddle.

No doubt it's contributing to the gender divide and causing more strife but while it's childish to say such, I will anyway."You started it."Do you honestly think this animosity and distrust towards Asian women would have even existed if Asian women didn't marry 50% out of their race? Every action will have an equal and opposite reaction.

While we do acknowledge that some Asian men are lashing out in unreasonable ways, at least we acknowledged a problem.

The first step is to always identify and acknowledge the problem before you can solve it.

For instance, I know many Asian men that refuse to stick up for Asian women for this reason alone.

They view this situation as a betrayal of the utmost degree and their own rational for not supporting Asian women is thus deemed warranted.

Has anyone ever even contemplated the idea that this issue is extremely demoralizing to the point where they're afraid of asking Asian women out because it's perceived that they don't date Asian men? Pull your head out of your ass, learn to rotate your brain, and view all aspects of the situation before you come to a simplistic conclusion befitting a shit-chucking orangutan.

Rice Patty, you and your other friends who think this way are partly responsible for this gender divide. And yes, I know all about how Asian men are portrayed in the media and this society. Now, what have you and your friends done to stop blaming women?

I have more shocking news for you; all of them are married or have steady girlfriends. They're concerned for their future children and other single Asian men who are down on their luck and demoralized. When the Chinese first came to this country, we formed our own enclaves and Tongs to protect ourselves from whites.

Sure, you'll have many who are just single and bitter but why is it so difficult to believe that many of these Asian guys who are complaining are simply concerned about their other brethren?
