    what do other races of gay men see them as?

    I'd like real, honest opinions because I'd like to hear them. Writing a paper for a class. So.... no holds-barred conversation here.

    if you're not serious, don't respond at all. icon_question.gif

    Also, questions to think about:

    Do you see most Asian men as effeminate by the way pornography and/or the media/Hollywood portrays them?

    Do you go by what the media says? Your parents?

    Religious views, sexual views?

    Sorry, but I'm an Asian myself and thought I had to answer. Personally, I don't care how others of other races view me as an Asian. But in the past, I did. I felt rejected because they rejected me, and I knew it was because I was Asian. I was one of the only ones in a gay bar once, and I felt so out of place and overlooked. It was so annoying.

    Then, I grew to love myself more and explored relations with other gaysians. The ones I know are so amazing. They understand what kind of stuff I've been through, and we just get each other. Plus, many of them are smoking hot. It's unbelievable. I like guys of other races, but they're not my cup of tea.

    So, I've had some men of other races (especially white) reject me because I'm either not masculine or tall enough, and then there have been some who mostly hang out with Asians (the rice queens). But the rice queens I've known have been in a bigger city, so there's the distinction.

    I think I'd call myself sticky rice.

    well to me there is a big difference in being a gay guy who is Asian, or an Asian guy who is gay and being what my friends and I call Gaysians. An Asian guy who is gay is no different than any other gay guy, but there are a lot of guys who fall into the Gaysian category. They tend to dress in black or bright colors, have overly plucked eyebrows and almost always have faux-hawks despite the fact that the rest of the world left that hair back in 2005 where it belongs. To me it is like how not every young blond gay guy is a twink, but there is definitely a twink culture/gay subset.

    Oh, come on. It hurts no one that this is a repeated thread topic. At least he had a unique twist to it.

    Back on topic. I have not met one openly gay Asian male in person. But the vast majority of my friends are male and Vietnamese. They are not effeminate and do not cave to the stereotypes that plague their race. They are just normal guys.

    I do think that, like any group of people, there are a wide assortments of people within the Asian culture. I think that you referral to the media and Hollywood is an exploitation of their smaller stature. I would, however, be hesitant to say that across the board they are made out to look this way. There are many masculine an buff Asian men in a variety of shows and movies.

    Not really sure what exactly you're looking for, or why my opinion would matter... So I think I'll stop while I am ahead. Good luck on your paper.

    Personally, I think other ethnic guys see us more as submissive, passive, scrawny nerds. The media has its way of blowing shit out of proportion, like in Asian porn. I can't bring myself to watch it because of their fetishes and how dramatic it can be. The cast always consists of guys who appear to represent the typical Asian stereotype. It's embarrassing, but I'm not ashamed of my culture. From the media, I don't believe what I hear and only believe half of what I see, or vice versa.

    I myself, am agnostic, honestly have a larger member than all the porns I have seen, suck in math, athletic and enjoy sports. But then again, you'll have your certain deviations; your typical Asians and your Asians that don't fall into that category
