Recently, YouTube personality and aspiring actress Anna Akana posted a rant about white men who fetishize Asian women. In the video, Akana recounts her experiences with yellow fever-stricken white nerds with such bitterness that you can practically visualize stink lines wafting off the screen:
Beyond the fact that Akana is clearly making some of her stories up (getting approached by men speaking an Asian language? Yeah right, honey), her video itself is based on a lie. Yellow fever, as described by jealous white girls and Americanized Asian girls, does not exist. The idea that there’s a whole population of men who fetishize slanty eyes and hairless bodies is a myth.
Before the usual suspects start flapping their gums, yes, nerdy white guys tend to end up with Asian girls. But the reason this happens is not because of the man’s fetish, but the woman’s fetish. Asian girls have an obsession with whiteness and white men that borders on being creepy, an obsession that is almost entirely ignored by the legions of white girls and resentful halfies crying about “yellow fever.”
White Fever In The Far East
Until you’ve visited Asia, it’s impossible to understand just how fascinated Asians are with whiteness. My first taste of it was in the Singapore airport. While I was trudging towards the transit hotel, I walked past several kiosks advertising skin lightening cream for women, for the explicit purpose of making them look more Caucasian. SJWs don’t exist in the Far East, so nobody sees anything wrong with this.
The fetishization ramped way up when I entered the Philippines. Every single advertisement on the streets features white models, half-white models, or Filipino models who’ve clearly had their skin retouched to look whiter. In the transit lounge at the Davao airport, I sat behind a huge poster advertising a skin lightening clinic, featuring models who were whiter than me. While the effect is less pronounced in other Eastern countries, the message is clear: many Asian women want to be white.
Indeed, the near-universality of “white fever” among Asian women is what makes laying them so easy. When I opened up an account on FilipinoCupid and posted a picture of myself, I started getting dozens of messages from Filipinas a day. Getting them to show up on dates was as simple as telling them I was going to be in their city (or was in their city) and asking what their number was.
To give you an example of how eager some Filipinas are to date a white man, one girl I met off of FilipinoCupid went absolutely crazy when I first texted her. Five minutes after I contacted her, she tried calling me three times in a row, and when I didn’t pick up, she sent me another three texts. When we finally met for coffee, she was downright obsequious, profusely apologizing to me for being late, laughing at all of my bad jokes, and repeatedly reminding me that we should “spend as much time together” as we could before I returned to the states.
White fever is so strong in the Philippines that I suspect that some of the girls I banged were trying to get pregnant just so they could have a half-white baby. I asked a few girls what they’d do if I got them pregnant (abortion is illegal in the Philippines) and they all told me they’d raise the baby on their own without telling me. Keep in mind that these were all college-educated, middle-class girls I met via FilipinoCupid or day gaming in malls.
Marital Submission And Asian Women
Resentful, Americanized Asian girls like Anna Akana claim that the reason white men have “yellow fever” is because they want a “submissive” woman they can control and berate. When they’re not parading this strawman around, they like to burn it by claiming that Asian women aren’t the “doormats” and “geishas” that nerdy white men are looking for, that they’re strong and sometimes domineering.
This entire argument is based on the fallacious feminist view of wifely submission. To the average you-go-grrl, “submission” conjures up an image of a battered wife tearfully obeying her husband’s every command, no matter how repulsive or humiliating. In actuality, submission is putting the interests of someone or something else before your own, without even thinking about it.
By this definition, Asian women are submissive, because marital submission is the only way to make a marriage and family work. It’s not about being a “doormat,” it’s about working to ensure the health and happiness of your husband and children. If you’re not going to put the interests of the man you love first, why even get married? Why have relationships to begin with if all you care about is yourself?
Furthermore, the claim that yellow fever-afflicted men are closeted domestic tyrants is yet another example of how feminists libel geeks and nerds, some of the most powerless men in American society, as being the root of all evil. Most of these nerds are just looking for an attractive woman who will treat them with respect and won’t emasculate them. Asian women actually appreciate the men in their lives: you will never see one casually cutting down her husband or boyfriend in public the way white girls do.
“Exotification” Does Not Exist
When I wrote an article several months ago praising Filipino girls, feminists and SJWs accused me of “exotifying” them. But none of the traits I listed are ones that only Filipinas can have. There’s nothing about being appreciative, chaste or skinny that precludes white, black, or any race of women from embodying these qualities. It’s not like I was castigating white girls for having round eyes or being taller than 5 foot 1 on average.
My big head may be accepting of all races and peoples, but my little head has its own hood and robes. I’m not particularly attracted to Asian facial features, but I’m also smart enough to recognize a good thing when I see it. Asian girls are a far better deal for the enterprising man looking for a girlfriend or wife who will support him, put his needs first and treat him the way he deserves to be treated.
To jealous white girls and honorary white girls like Anna Akana, Asian women are a threat. A class of girls who are feminine, agreeable and attractive are dangerous to women who get off on being self-absorbed, self-mutilating bores. Accusing men who want feminine, agreeable women of having “yellow fever” is a way of vilifying normal male desires. The slur obscures the fact that white male-Asian female pairings are driven by the fetishes of the latter, not the former.
