You’re not as pretty as Asians.

Since moving to the San Francisco area, I’ve been told by a few men quite bluntly that I’ll never measure up to an East Asian woman. This is what I’ve heard; “You white women age faster. Asian women are so much prettier. Asian women don’t get fat. Asian women are nicer, more demure. They’re smarter.”. The blatant racism and sexism infuriates me, never mind the rudeness of it. It’s like somehow okay because I’m white, in the majority, and they’re talking about a minority race. It’s never right. Racism is racism. Sexism is sexism.
