The Moon Represents My Heart - Teresa Teng
@neonfuzion we have one Indonesian and one Chinese. We need more. That, or we need to pool resources to have stuff translated. I found some places online that do $5 for 500 words, which is just 0.01 per word. The cost per word goes down when the project size increases. I am confident there are cheaper prices within Asia itself.
@secondstrike do we even have translators? If we dont have any , this is useless.
@natalie_ng spamming. We need lots of commenters to spread and interdict conversations. Most of the content is ready in copypasta form. The other thing we need are allies with a powerful voice - unlikely to find them here in America, but I am hopeful we can hit them hard in Asia.
All useful idiots and traitors need to be discredited and totally marginalized. This applies to all kinds.
@secondstrike I’m sure most of us on this site are pretty aware of pedophilia and psychopaths being white traits. I’m just trying to think how we’ll be able to unbrainwash our entire community (the ones not on this site) for them to realize that whites aren’t as perfect as they make themselves out to be.
Ask yourself though, how aware are we of these problems? From what I can tell, not very.
I won’t post everything because I’m working on other stuff, but I want to address the double bind, which is central to how brainwashing works. First, Christianity. Good stuff happens = praise god. Bad stuff happens = it’s the devil. This is the double bind at work. It works by framing events so they fit a certain world view. Let’s see how this works with whites.
White pedophile = bad apple, mental illness
White pedophile ring = bad apple, mental illness
Police brutality = bad apple, rogue cop
Vatican pedophile coverup = the devil
af getting killed by wm = bad apple
afwm hapa psychopaths = bad apple, or Asian problem.
We have many problems but the framing of the events is huge. On top, we have useful idiots all over that keep repeating this nonsense like Jenn Fang who blames white supremacist afwm psychopath actions on Asian culture / Asian men.
This example shows the power of a “double bind” – regardless of your choice, you lose.
Stereotyping is extremely powerful mind control because it frames your life experiences so even when confronted with proof that stereotypes are inaccurate, the stereotypes remain because you believe it’s just a rare event that won’t happen again. Conversely, whites are given the trait “egalitarian” so you unconsciously assume that a controlling white male is the exception rather than the rule. Yet, statistically, wm are over 628% more likely to commit domestic violence than Am and almost 400% more likely commit rape than Am. Below is the case study.
Several respondents described variations in gender dynamics within mainstream and ethnic settings that challenge notions of Asian and American worlds as monolithic opposites. Some talked of mothers who make all the decisions or fathers who do the cooking. These accounts were framed as exceptions to Asian male dominance.
Asian American Women And Racialized Femininities ‘Doing’ Gender across Cultural Worlds
As Mimi, a Korean American, states: Most Asian guys have this expectation that Asian women belong at home and they shouldn’t go out at night, whereas I think a white person feels that a woman has a more equal status with the man, and she can do whatever she wants. I know I’m judging all the white guys from this one white guy [I dated], but white guys are very chivalrous.
Even though Jennifer acknowledges drawing on her experience with only one white man, she nonetheless uses him as confirmatory evidence of white and Asian men as polar opposites. Such over-generalisation is common
“I’ve never really dated a Caucasian before, but I hear that most of them don’t treat their women like a possession. Like they want communication instead of the woman always doing what the man wants.”
What Mimi ‘hears’ and believes about racialised masculinities is based on the widely circulating imagery perpetuated by the white dominated society, shaping her expectations of white and Asian American men, rather than actual contact.

In these examples, the attributes of one Asian man (their father) are generalised to all Asian men expanding a negative trait to the entire group. It is difficult to imagine white heterosexual women referring to their father’s dominance as a reason they prefer to date or marry a man who is not white.
White male domination and privilege means that white men are not subjected to stereotypes based on the ‘bad’ behaviour of a few white males. Racial oppression, on the other hand, including that which has been internalised by the oppressed, encourages the over-generalisation of the ‘bad’ behaviour of a few men of colour to the entire group.
In fact, respondents do not generalise the male dominance of their fathers to all males, but only to Asian males.
Meanwhile, in the case of white men, the positive traits of egalitarianism and chivalry associated with one white boyfriend are generalised to the entire group. This illustrates the power of white racial domination in winning the consent of the oppressed through the perpetuation and inculcation of racist images. It is not a matter of ‘seeing is believing’, but rather, the racialised assumptions the dominant society teaches the oppressed shape how and what they see (Pyke and Johnson).
An Intersectional Approach to Resistance and Complicity - The Case of Racialised Desire among Asian American Women
…those who express a desire for white men invoke racialised gender stereotypes of masculinity that idealise white Western men as romantic ‘egalitarian knights’ and denigrate Asian American men as inferior, domineering partners. Those respondents who prefer white men see it as a strategy for resisting Asian American men’s gender oppression; however, they overlook white men’s gender oppression and some Asian American men’s commitment to gender egalitarianism.”
“An analysis of interviews with 128 second generation Korean and Vietnamese American women finds those who express a desire for white men invoke racialised gender stereotypes of masculinity that idealise white Western men as romantic ‘egalitarian knights’ and denigrate Asian American men as inferior, domineering partners Those respondents who prefer white men see it as a strategy for resisting Asian American men’s gender oppression; however, they overlook white men’s gender oppression and some Asian American men’s commitment to gender egalitarianism. The analysis finds respondents commonly draw on four widely circulating ideologies promoting white men’s racial and gender domination in explaining their romantic preferences
The argument that non Western and or women of colour deploy discourses glorifying white Western masculinity to resist co ethnic male dominance is largely without empirical examination
It is very strange that it’s the “egalitarian white man” who hunts for what he believes are easy to control women.
Fed up with the independence, career orientation, materialism, assertiveness and egalitarian expectations associated
with white Western women, Western men pursue traditional, subservient wives fromabroad, or immigrant populations in their own country
Many women who pursue Western partners in search of a better life never succeed in finding a partner, or, if they do, do not receive the expected rewards
Even though Jennifer acknowledges drawing on her experience with only one white man, she nonetheless uses him as confirmatory evidence of white and Asian men as polar opposites. Such over generalisation is common in these narratives. Some respondents who have not dated or interacted much with Asian American or white men admit their racialised assumptions are not based on actual contact.
By framing their lack of attraction to Asian males as a matter of personal preference, respondents present as normal and acceptable the anti Asian racism and glorified imagery of white masculinity they have internalised. In a real sense, many are unaware of the underlying reasons behind their lack of attraction to Asian males. While they provide lists of derogated stereotypical traits as reasons, few offer a critique of these stereotypes or suggest white gendered racism informs their desires. When racism is so fully woven into the fabric of society that it informs common sense thought, it becomes normalised and more difficult to resist, resulting in phrases like ‘‘I’m not attracted to Vietnamese males for some reason’’ and ‘‘I don’t know what it is.’’
An Intersectional Approach to Resistance and Complicity The Case of Racialized Desire among Asian American women
Yeah, you’re right, Asians in Asia are straight up clueless Now I’m even more depressed.
@secondstrike Too late , im convinced we’re utterly stupid.
Stufff like this - like WTF? We allow WHITE PEDOFILES IN OUR OWN COUNTRIES. That could be yours , mine cousin getting treated like that.
@secondstrike I wish I was as optimistic as you. The more of these couples I see around, the sadder and less hope I have for our entire community. While I think as individuals, we might be able to change our children’s perspective, I think it would have to take something extremely drastic to change our entire community’s perspective, such as Asian countries rising to become an even bigger superpower than the U.S.
@neonfuzion @natalie_ng - It’s definitely not stupidity, but cultural inertia and huge ignorance / brainwashing. The good news is that it can be changed.
