Settling for being treated like nothing more than an exotic souvenir gets really old really fast. I am an individual with depth and emotion and interests and flaws.My skin, my eyes, and where my ancestors came from do not make me any less of a human being worthy of being respected and treated like an individual. I am lucky to have the family and culture that I grew up with.Either way, I can’t take this phenomenon as some kind of compliment. When I first came across guys like this, it was my first year in college.

Weirdly enough, that kind of rejection isn’t that difficult for me to get over.People with Yellow Fever don’t want to get to know Asian women.In fact, I would venture to say that they don’t care very much about Asian women at all.Stereotypes turn people like me into things that are measured against a caricature, and they strip me of the individuality that, frankly, I would probably have been more freely assigned if I were white.

It is dehumanizing at best to constantly be compared to a stereotype and to have people chasing you not as a person, but as an embodiment of the stereotypes that they use to define you.

I am actually in a relationship right now with a great non-Asian guy who would never pull things like this and doesn’t harbor those harmful stereotypical ideas about Asian women.
