Hello trip theme song; this song can single-handedly get me through anything.
Hi nonfemme, great site you have although I would just like to comment on one thing. You talked about Caucasian men in fear of getting beat up if they go out with Mongolian women. However you fail to make note that the situation is much worse in Europe and other western countries when an Asian man dates a white woman. Over in the west haters of am/WF couples are very common and Asian guys get beat up.
Hey Brian! Thanks so much for the compliments and also for the important comment. My blog was focused on my experiences in Mongolia, which were augmented through the fact that I felt myself to be in a precarious/minority/anthropological position and are thus also focused on that cultural context. I, personally, from hanging out with Asians in Europe have never heard of beating up of AM/WF couples, although I do not doubt it exists with all the underlying nationalism that continues in various European countries, so do you have any articles/references you would recommend for me to read? As for Asian discrimination in Europe/North America, I do know that bullying is incredibly high among Asian children, but that experience has more to do with general discrimination (imho). I think the beating up WM/AF couples in Mongolia is very highly linked to the nationalist/blood-based discourse, which exists less in North America and Europe (although this is questionable and country-specific) than in Mongolia. I can’t really speak for other Asian countries on that matter. Let me know if you have any references, I would be super interested in reading into it! Thanks!
