Post Reply The Asian Phase
Posted 5/5/15
I'm asian, and the only thing I do is eat noodles. I can eat noodles for breakfast, snack, lunch, and dinner. 24/7. I'm quite good at making noodle dishes. Other than that, I don't do the rest. I seclude myself from most people and if I do hang out with people, they're not asian. Actually some are, but most no. Though the guys that are interested in me are always asian. I don't like dramas. I actually prolly only have taken two photos with the peace sign in my life time.

Thankfully i missed that phase, the closest i ever get to it is accidentally picking up quirks from anime if i start marathoning it too much.

I kind of am Asian, so I have just the slightest obligation to appreciate the fruits of my culture.
However, I do not take selfies, nor do I style my hair. Or really have any friends to hang out with.

I'm alright with most Asian things, but ever since I was influenced by anime as a child I've been more drawn to Japanese pop culture than anything else.
Yep, I listen to J-pop.
Yep, I enjoy watching anime and reading manga, as well as various fan made animations or doujinshi influenced by them.
And maybe every once in a while I watch an Asian drama or two.

But honestly, I don't think Asians can really be held accountable for having "Asian phases". For me it's more like just being a big fan of Japanese things. You could call that an "Otaku phase". Some people like to call us Weeaboos too but it has more of a negative connotation to it so it makes me a bit uneasy to be called one sometimes.

No, I never held any particular pride in my race.

There's nothing wrong with being white washed, you were more so raised towards a different culture.

As long as you don't wish to BE white or BE Asian there's nothing wrong. There isn't really a phase.

You are who you are, remember to respect the good of other cultures and remember to also be well-versed in the evils of other cultures. To become something you must be open and understanding. You love the fashion and you love some type of music. Never wish to be anything else but yourself.

In 1970 during the Olympics in Japan figure skater Janet Lynn, fell during her performance and made a peace sign towards the crowd. This was made photographic and a phenomenon began in Japan. It is not quite an Asian thing but that's what happened.

How are you "kind of" Asian? What is your ethnicity?

I also want to remind people quickly about a small fact as well.

In Europe or the U.S India isn't considered Asian because those areas label by "Ethnicity" thus Indian or Sri Lankian.

So in reference to Asian in Europe or U.S USUALLY they mean " Eastern Asian and South Eastern Asian"

If you're from the Philippines that's more tricky. Geologically the Philippines are part of the Pacific Islands so people do label them as Pacific Islanders but there's a lot of mix out there, Half and Half and what not. They're technically Asian and technically not, you'd have to ask them carefully. It's a weird topic.

Sort of but not really. It was really subtle.

I did though get an Asian haircut at as Japanese owned place, wanted to learn Japanese, increased my consumption of Pocky and Studied Japan in and out of everything to do with japan.

Shall we have a noodle-off to see which one of us is the stronger noodle? I've been noodling for years.
