Asian Women and Stuff White People Like

Short while ago, I came across a blog called “Stuff White People Like.” I was drawn by the site’s catchy title and its 50+ million hits since Jan. 2008 (wow — talk about a successful blog)!

“What’s this all about?!”

Humorous, satirical, insightful (depending on who you ask), highly opinionated, and controversial, “Stuff White People Like” stirred range of emotions — laughter, question, anger, disgust, and indifference — on a Sunday morning!

The blog on “Asian Women” really got me going.

Take for instance the fact that Asian women well into their 30s and 40s retain teen / college girl looks without the help of Botox, yoga or a trendy diet.

I’m Asian, 43-years-old, married, and a mother of two boys.  A few days ago, someone thought I was 35, but I haven’t been mistaken for a teenager in decades.  I do yoga few times a week, mostly out of necessity.  I’d love to lose 10 pounds yesterday (solely for health reasons, not looks — yeah right)!

Asian women also avoid key white women characteristics such as having a mid-life crisis, divorce, and hobbies that don’t involve taking care of the children.

Say what?!

I experienced mid-life crisis in my mid-thirties.  Life taught me some important, valuable lessons — live life while I’m alive — invest in people and relationships, not status and stuff.

I know plenty of divorced AND happily married white AND Asian women.  I also know several in both categories whose lives revolve around their children; others around their careers  (who cares … what works for you works for me).

For the most part, Stuff White People Like is interesting.

But to men who truly believe we make great cooks, mops, and sex machines … BEWARE!  Save time and agony.  Get castrated.

Never underestimate the power of Asian women!
