    Hi ALL!

    I am 28 yrs old from the Philippines.

    Living in a poor Asian country, I noticed that a lot of old white guys visit Manila/Bankok/Jakarta to look and hook up with 18 - 24 yrs old gay guys.

    I can't generalized the issue to ALL white guys that they are not "HOT" looking to their counterparts same as to my fellow Asians who are only looking for the "OPPORTUNITY".... but is there any BIGGER reason why is this happening?

    I hope to hear from you guys who have experience this or knows someone in this situation.

    'Mustah? We've had the same discussions here before (note plural form). You should've dug deeper in the old threads... I'll try to look for them and post the links. Anywho... it would be interesting to know what the newbies think since the OP is a newbie himself.

    In the words of Jasper on Family Guy:

    "All I wanted was to marry a skinny, hairless Philipino boy. Isn't that the American dream?"

    It's bloody hard to find anything Family Guy on YouTube anymore, because everyone puts that in their tags for attention... I'll keep looking though.

    A little late to be searching for your cherry, isn't it Zim? icon_razz.gif

    But seriously...I don't know. I'm guessing it might have to do with perceptions of power and privilege. Look at the history of colonialism, replace 'girl' with 'boy,' and voila.

    I have a friend my age who seems to have a propensity for very young (early 20's) asian guys. I always thought it was creepy in a borderline pedophile kind of way.

    ...young 20-somethings are 'of age' in the states... why would you consider this creepy?

    Indeed. May-December affairs are not exactly a new thing in Gay Culture. As long as both are happy, I don't see anything bad with it.

    And you have a problem with that? What conclusion do you draw from the fact that guys might find you attractive or interesting of any age?

    Sometimes people like others for factors OTHER than age and don't see that as such a major barrier to even being friends. I have noticed that in general, the more mature we get the LESS age differences matter but sadly the younger we are the MORE we are obsessed and fixated with age, Fortunately there are some nice people of all age on RJ that care more about the person's personality traits, experience, skills and what kind of human being they are rather than not even look at them if they are over/under a pre-determined age.

    This is the "Rice Queen Phenomenon": Old white men are marginalized in the gay world/scene as are Asians. So you have members of two marginalized gay demographics gravitating toward each other. Furthermore, there are many aspects of white colonialism coming into play in a rice queen/rice boy situation. I have no respect for either of the players in this sad arrangement. Once in a while, I'll get hit on by a rice queen and the total lack of respect, condescension and sense of entitlement on the part of the older white man are completely obnoxious.
