Okay, somehow upon entering this vast world of interracial dating, I get the unique opportunity to see the other side of many different issues that arise within other racially diverse communities. Case in point, I get a peeky into a world of prejudice that I thought existed with my own people, but have hence come to learn that, in fact, certain other cold, hard realities DO in fact exist. As stated some time ago, I'm going to be a mother soon and the baby's father is Chinese, and in meeting him and hanging out in the Chinese community that exists in GA, I'm privvy to some serious, messed up shit.

Okay, so me and the boyfriend went to this convention held every year in Atlanta called Dragon*Con. I'm quite sure that many of you heard of it; it's held in other cities too at various times of the year, and while we're there I had the *squick* pleasure of meeting these two dudes who were clearly the king and prince of the pinkerton movement because they just exemplified EVERYTHING, and I'm mean EVERYTHING, that has been used as an example here (I cringe as I write this): they smelled like week old sweat, their hair was unkempt, their clothes were messy and dirty and they were obsessed, and I mean, OBSESSED with any Asian girl that walked by their table with these desperate, longing, plaintive looks that just made me sick to my stomach. You're probably asking," Why, Erica? Why do you sit next to these two clowns?!" And I will tell you, there were no seats in the cafeteria. My body is currently a heavy mass of baby, placenta and a whole mess of other stuff so I was tired, hungry and there was no where else to go. We had to "room" with these guys at the table, and they looked nice enough until you caught a hint of their smell and then, quite suddenly, my salisbury steak didn't look so appetizing any more (and I really wanted that damn steak too...Like a zombie wants your brainz). So, we're sitting there and me and my boyfriend are engaging in conversation about us, the baby, awesome comics and the one hot tamale that walked in with this too-gotdamn-sexy-azz outfit that made my mouth water (what? I have bi-curious tendencies) and one of the guys breaks in with a "Are you two guy together? o.0" And my boyfriend, not sensing the danger, says, "Yep, we're together and further goes onto elaborate just how "together" we are; i.e. the baby (he's a proud dad and the bugger's not even here yet, what can I say?), and the guys turn and give me this look as if some kind of a light blinks on in their head and their eyes zero in on my stomach like they've found the path way to the Mecca. Seriously, it was fucking gross. And then the OTHER guy decides he wants to let spill how tiny and precious Asian girls are and how he wants to date one, etc, etc, basically the typical 'dragonlady' stereotype, the prepubescent Loli stereotype and the docile, cleans-up-your-house-without-a-single-thought-or-care-to-her-own-needs Asian girl, and some other bullshit about wanting to visit Japan or China or the Philipenes (sp?) to find himself a wife crap and I have to leave that table or else I would've thrown up what little food I did manage to get down my throat all over the guys disgusting, oily, pimpley face. Ew. Seriously, people? That's just...fucking disturbing and now, I'm scared to DEATH for my kid...I mean, really? WTF?!

Just my two cents really.

Yikes! Good luck!

My parents' approach to the whole race issue (I'm hapa) was to never mention it at all. I don't recommend that approach.

Wow, it's like the thought your womb was the hiding place for all of the world's gold or something. That's gross, especially how your baby led to a conversation about wanting to date Asian ladies. Seriously, how does that happen?

You're asking me? Lol! Those guys were just really....really...and, I mean, REALLY...disgusting! Mt boyfriend FINALLY realized the danger when they were going on and on about tiny-bodied Asian ladies, etc and he couldn't get away from the table fast enough.

It was just...

Ew.

I am a mother to a hapa child, too. Don't worry, it isn't as scary as it sounds. My daughter knows she's part white and chooses to be Asian. So, I let her dictate what she wants to be. She's smart enough to make the right decision.
