Asian exocit dating
In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.
As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever.
If I enter into a relationship with a white man who loves my heritage, is it a self-debilitating embrace of Yellow Fever?
“I can’t explain it—it’s just an attraction.” We had been dating for a few weeks and, until then, everything had felt like a dream.
He seemed to be yet another white man who had caught the Yellow Fever.
The colloquial term “Yellow Fever” is most commonly attributed to white men who seem to exclusively date Asian women, with the assumption that they are submissive, delicately feminine, and mysteriously exotic.
In addition to the daily objectification that all women experience, Yellow Fever further reduces Asian women to infantile figures no different than black-haired sex dolls.
