Asian fetishization is so normalized among kpop stans. There are so many ppl (especially minors who need learn better) that say they love “asian men uwu” and we learn to just ignore them and move on. There are tons of ppl out there that do this and its gross and seems impossible to educate them all. Plus there are a lot of ppl that will be stubborn and say we’re just being sensitive/ its a compliment/ asian men are nicer and a whole lot of other bullshit 😪 it’s tiring.
In hs, I had a classmate that said she had a “preference” for asian and white men. There are so many things wrong with that. We all know when ppl say this they mean east (maybe se) asians and it’s blatantly racist to non-east asian poc. And the thought process that asian men aren’t capable of abuse bc the idols/actors you stan are nice guys is disgusting. Also, asian ppl aren’t an aesthetic. Every asian guy isn’t gonna dress nice and making asian men into a dreamy fantasy is gross (not to mention it disregards poor asians, trans asians or anyone that doesnt fit your Ideal Asian.)
I could go on but i’ve said enough. I’m just asking you say something to people fetishizing east asians. You dont have to go into a full argument but tell them theyre being gross so if theyre willing to look into it, they’ll see their mistake and better themselves.
