But that’s part of the complaint; as soon as women move into a field in large numbers, or it becomes heavily feminised, then things like this happen: biology is a ‘soft’ science, psychology isn’t a science at all, and neither is medicine. The authors would like to thank the people involved with #libtechgender discussions, especially Coral Sheldon-Hess, for getting us thinking in this goodessay.pw might not have pursued writing this article if not for their important work. We would also like to thank our support group of other female librarians for their insight, personal experiences and quotes that helped frame this work. I. “Silliest internet atheist argument” is a hotly contested title, but I have a special place in my heart for the people who occasionally try to prove Biblical fallibility by pointing out whales are not a type of fish. The Online Writing Lab (OWL) at Purdue University houses writing resources and instructional material, and we provide these as a free service of the Writing Lab at Purdue. Oh, lovely, a hateful remark from someone that obviously has unresolved issues with more than a few things. Suggesting she used disabled people as a shield .

June 19, at 5: Im reposting this from the PUA thread, because I feel as though it is pertinent here as well: On the flip side, the whole reason why we are in this whole mess is, like mentioned above, it is a zero-sum game, that is fought via power and social status.

The whole reason we are dealing with this is because America holds all the power. The truth is that Asian fetish is simply one more manifestation of a product that Western men and thus Western society want and acquire through their inordinate amount of power and standing in a geopolitical scale.
If that power were to shift, then things would be different. Look at China for example.
Gender Divide Podcast
It is through sheer power and financial standing that China can make these demands. Asian Americans have been criticising media for decades and I see very little difference between characters in the s Joy Luck Club and our current society today.
It is the ultimate root. Again, there are no easy steps, as this whole thing… is way, way bigger than any of us individual Asian Americans. But meaningful steps are clear.
It would be helpful to form a new community, a group or type of Asian-Americans who are conscious and CONNECTED with their lands of ethnic origin — who work hard in America and then use their talents to build bridges and bring financial and cultural wealth to Asia.
Eric on June 19, at 5: There, I discovered what life could be like without having to deal with the racial antagonism and experiencing life with the full acceptance into the social fabric of a society. Relationships, I might add, were not a problem either. Being Asian-American is not enough, but being educated, in touch with your ethnic culture, and having the potential to bring wealth into Asian lands can grant you everything.
Using the institutions of the USA, and by hard work we can cultivate ourselves into entrepreneurs and individuals capable of bringing wealth and expertise to our ethnic homelands. And after facing racial indignation here in the USA, is it not justifiably cathartic to use the USA as a stepping stone?
I wonder sometimes how many Asian-Americans really know that there is a better life out there? Eric on June 19, at 6: The solution is hard to find because the source of the problem is huge, historically massive, and greater than all of us.
Above is the ONLY solution. To train and build oneself to be a conduit between Asia and the USA, in an attempt to enrich Asia and build ourselves a NEW identity, an international identity as a new cosmopolitan elite, training in the USA and then setting up businesses, honing professional skills, and generating wealth in Asia. It will not come easy.
Western hegemony cannot be overturned in a decade, and probably not even in our lifetimes. But for that, there is a wonderful saying in the Jewish Talmud that I would like to borrow: Eric Most AAs know well and clear that living here and living in Asia will give them very different experiences.
There are AAs who would argue that they feel more at home in America, than in their ancestral homeland. There are AAs who would feel more comfortable under a Western hegemony than an Asian one.
How about rebuilding the ethnic enclaves?
Sociology of Gender
Some of the Chinatowns in America seem to have stagnated. Pozhal on June 19, at 7: Therefore, to them, the status quo is irritating, but it is not a complete degradation of their racial and gender self-esteem. Eric on June 19, at 8: There is little empathy because very real consequences and benefits are at stake. Asian women have the unique opportunity to benefit and achieve full acceptance into American society through the dating route.
Dating white means entrance into white society, aka — so women will make the choice that is best for them.
Gendered Expectations for Leadership in Libraries
For asian men, like all men, losing the opportunities to have meaningful sexual and emotional relationships with women — is not a life worth living. So the situation is set up so that Asian men and Asian women in America have non-negotiable competing interests, with real consequences.
So its obvious people will go their own way and do what is best for themselves. And to condemn each other for looking our for their individual interests is unreasonable — everyone wants to live a better life.

This is a zero-sum situation. This is bigger than just understanding each other. This has to do with wealth, social standing, and power, and the fact that it is concentrated in Western hands. Eric on June 19, at 9: The cause of all this is Western power and hegemony. It is the reason why there has been no solution to this for decades. With the concentration of wealth in the West, white men can offer the women of the world a better life.
To condemn Asian women for pursuing a better life with more societal acceptance and privilege is not reasonable. If you want a solution, you have to combat Western hegemony and power itself.
