The underlying article, the article discussed by the blogger had a title to the effect of “Chinese men do not deserve Chinese women.” I think Asian men are the only demographic about which an article like this could even be written. I think to take on the question and even to ask such a thing, whether these men here “deserve” those women there is racist. How can you conceivably condense the actions, thoughts, and words of millions of people into two words (Chinese men or Asian men)? This isn’t an academic exercise anymore folks. This is the perpetuation of a racist paradigm against the sexuality of Asian men. The ultimate social effect will leave more boys and men lonely for the rest of their lives because they were born _______.
Can I ask you something reader? I’m a Chinese man. If I don’t deserve a Chinese woman, who do I deserve? Or do I not deserve love?
Chinese young people are no different from their counterparts anywhere in the world in that a main question they face is the one of whom to marry. China’s rise and modernization has, in some ways, made this a more complicated question as ideas about marriage and qualifications for a spouse have evolved.
There are many lively online discussions about all this, but a recent online article titled “Chinese Men Do Not Deserve Chinese Women” created quite a dust up.

The title of the post is “Chinese Men and Women: Who, in the End, is Good Enough for Whom?”
