I’ve been mocked form my heritage before. So was she. This week.
My mother never married for feminism. She married because white men were more physically appealing. Because white power was appealing. Because an American lifestyle was more appealing than living in Asia.
Behind closed doors 99% of White male / Asian woman couples will admit that they are together because Asian women are attracted to the white privilege that white men have.
Where is Tammy Duckworth’s white privilege?
What happens when Asian women who see Asian men as inferior have children who look 100% Asian like Tammy does? What happens when they don’t even make it to that level of success because they get cut down – mostly for boys – early on for looking exactly like the type of men that Asian women hate?
A good comment from Reddit:
This is a reminder that its not just about positive vs negative Hapa stories. Tammy Duckworth is as positive a Hapa story you can get. She overcame her war injuries to become a Congresswoman and will likely be a Senator. Yet this prominent, inspirational, successful Hapa has brought a great deal of attention to the main thing we talk about on r/Hapas. Yes we are equally, both white and Asian. But the world sees us as Asian and denies us our white side, and society and even WMAF parents themselves are not prepared to deal with this. This story has brought out in the most powerful, public way that yes this is a real concern. This Republican Senator represents the thinking of a great many white Americans.
Also if we ever get one of those conservative white dads telling us to take pride in our white sides, we can remind them that this is how conservative white men react when you do so.
Meanwhile in other news, Mariah Carey just cheated on her billionaire boyfriend with this guy. A hapa with an Asian dad.
WMAF is just so full of fail.
