I am a member of a lot of Asian American groups on Facebook. Something I see often is Asian women calling out white men for having an Asian fetish. I'm going to turn it around on Asian women because I'm getting a bit frustrated reading complaints and articles about this topic. I'm also noticing a pattern from the women that post about it. Every time an Asian woman complains that only white guys want to date her and that white guys fetishize Asian women, it usually turns out that she herself has only dated white guys. Interesting how that works, right?
In case you missed it, Deloitte has decided to phase out their affinity-based employee resource groups and replace them with inclusion councils made up of employees from different backgrounds to work on diversity issues.

However, it can be done.
Sometimes, when the world seems crazy out there, we all get that inside voice going. You know what I mean; it's like the talk bubble in a cartoon. Let's say you're out alone one summer night and you pop into a sushi bar. You're single and hot with your creamy, caramel-colored skin, and the white guy at the end of the sushi bar eyes you. So you cozy up your multiracial, muttilicious , Taiwanese-Latina self to the sushi bar, two seats away from him.
Most would think of the tropical, mosquito-borne disease that literally turns patients to a sickly yellow. But in order to arrive at an acceptable hypothesis, the need to examine all possible variables surrounding the idea must not be overlooked. But when exactly does preference become fetish? According to Nicolas Gattig, writing for The Japan Times , Prasso asserted that the line between preference and fixation is vague; ultimately, the individual must decide for oneself whether she or he feels objectified.
