  1. This is because they are Asian. On average, white American woman will choose obese, jobless, uneducated short white guy over tall, athletic educated successful Asian guy. This is how racism and media destroyed image of Asian men. Just look at the comment section and see so many triggered white men who feel threatened when their privilege and status quo are challenged. Just remember, Sessue Hayakawa was the first sex symbol of the Hollywood. Stay woke.

  2. Everyone is sexy in their own way. And some people's "sexy" is more attractive than others. And I know people love to criticize asians about their eyes and quirks. People need to learn that people are brought up differently and they need to stop looking for people's looks and look for their personality. No one seems to do that with asians. Eww, look at her weird eyes. Omg, what is she eating? Deal with it. And a lot of people ask if people are asian for some reason. Sometimes they're not. Eye shape doesn't automatically make you a certain race people.

  3. Uhm excuse me but there are soooo many women that think some asian men are sexy. Ofc the handsome ones cause it's like that in every country. There are sexy and handsome men in every country.

  4. I think it would be good if we could develop friendships with all races and get to know each other. I love my friends from vietnam and thailand. They are really great guys and I also habe friends who come from africa and. getting to know them helps to spread awareness that its bad if we devide each other. Im a young white male who supports and respects all people, but some people like to say that white people are not good and have high status and privileges, because they have power based on their race. This is very incorrect. Of course there exist racist white people but many are just living their own life and have big respect for others, as it should be.

  5. I 100% Agree with what you all are saying however, in my experience there are a lot (not saying all) of Asian men who also choose white counterparts rather than their own or other races. Sure there are other races who find asian men very attractive but are asian men open to dating outside of white women and men?

  6. Just what I thought, they try to blame the media.. No, there are actual studies done on this, and the REAL reason, is the lower testosterone in east asian males, coupled with the fat distribution of the face, which hides the masculine bone structure, and the shape of the eye. This makes an asian male's face neotenous, which doesn't trigger a womans sexuality, and will awaken a caring trigger for women, unlike a face that shows more testosterony features and low fat distribution. Sexuality is biological and complex, and is not shaped by hollywood movies.

  7. Simple because us media ignores them. Usa tv and movies has a large brainwashing effect on people not only in this country but other countries also. The white producers at Hollywood know keeping a white male hero will increase their chances of getting laid. Blacks use music videos trying to show that girls like them also and it has worked a little bit for them too. Latinos and Italians have a charm about them and even without much media time they do well on natural gifts. However asians dont have enough media exposure and when they do it is usually negative.
