Yours truly has been blogging for what, less than a month now, and the process has persuaded me to finally open a few social media accounts. I searched through various blogging communities, Twitter, Tumblr, and was impressed by the number of AMWF blogs and sites. (This is a great blog and launchpad to other blogs and sites – http://speakingofchina.com).
Anyone who has looked around knows that the vast majority of authors are female. In fact, excluding couples’ joint blogs, I couldn’t find a male AMWF relationship blogger. Though I’d guess women outnumber men generally as relationship bloggers, in this arena, I think it’s important for the men to speak up.
Asian men, bros, let me have your attention for a moment. I don’t need to tell you about the discrimination, you’re living in it. You have to act if you want change. It’s a hostile environment, but the ladies are leading the charge, kicking all kinds of ass, and you’re not helping enough. So don’t think of it in terms of modesty, privacy, or hassle; think of it in terms of picking up a fair share of the work that we all agree needs to be done. Write your experiences. They are worthwhile.
