Asian Beauty

Asian beauty standards are somewhat similar to Western beauty standards, but seem more narrowly defined and rigid than what is “required” in the West.” Most Asian cultures require: very pale skin; a heart-shaped face with a narrow chin; double eyelids; a high-bridged, slender nose; mid-sized-to-large breasts. a slim figure with no visible muscle tone; and long, straight hair.

Asian Beauty Standards

Hehe… I’m not going to trouble myself to lie; I think this is an attractive beauty standard, though I’m not overly sold on the slim with no muscle tone part. I do prefer women who are bit more “fit” and/or “robust.” But, it’s still better than the Eurocentric, now largely deprecated – and possibly soon to be illegal, western beauty standard.

Leaving the slim-soft vs. slim-toned personal preference aside, and leaving the pale skin bit aside too, due to this being a normal thing for agrarian and recently agrarian societies, the only issues I have with Asian beauty standards are they’re too rigid – there isn’t really any alternative standards like the US has – and they’re quite unnatural for the Asian phenotype. That unnatural bar, combined with the issue that is Sheng nu (剩女), is something to be derided.

Give Them Reason For Thanks

With Thanksgiving right around the corner – in America at least – I’d like to point out to my fellow White men that, for the sake of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, we really should give those women of color something to be thankful for – specifically some “golden children.” 😉

Give Them Reason For Thanks - Orthocegenate

Orthocegenation Is Right

Orthocegenation is right, just, and the best way to raise up the marginalized people by sharing our supposed privilege. No woman of color should have to bear non-White children.

Give Them Reason For Thanks

Yes, gentlemen, give them reasons for thanks. Give these beautiful women and the children you’ll give them a way out and way up by helping close the Generational Wealth Gap in the best way possible. 😉

It’s the right, White thing. It’s the just thing. And, take this as coming from the voice of experience – it is no burden at all. Privilege is best shared and that sharing brings it own rewards and pleasures.

It's A Very Special Easter

It’s A Very Special Easter This Year

2023’s Easter is a bit more special than normal. It’s Easter in the Year of the Rabbit! Seems like a good time to put any sinophobia you might – understandably, given what been going on throughout the last three years – have aside and diligently go hunting some Asian eggs. 😆

The Year Of The Rabbit

The Year Of The Rabbit
Its The Year Of The Rabbit

Today is the Asian Lunar New Year and the beginning of the Year Of The Rabbit.

So… Relax, Think Happy Thoughts, Get Lucky, And Make Some Babies?

Yes, in China and across most of Asia, this now the Year Of The Rabbit, specifically the Water Rabbit. It is considered the luckiest zodiac year, characterized by peaceful and patient energy, good luck, creativity, and fertility.

But, in Vietnam, It’s The Year Of The Cat

As I wrote though, it’s the Year Of The Rabbit across most of Asia. In Vietnam – possibly because of odd crossovers between the pronunciation of rabbit in Mandarin and the written form in Kmer; possibly because the Vietnamese have a longstanding and not unexpected bias against the Chinese – this is the start of the Year Of The Cat.

So, so as to both limit Chinese cultural tyranny and to make some inroads against my own personal anti-Vietnamese bias, here’s some fine cats as well. After all, 50 years is a bit long to hang on to that level of hate. 😉
