Portrayals of Asian Guys with Latino, Black, White, & Mixed Girls

Asian men are rarely in interracial marriages, according to the US Census. And they're often stereotyped as unmanly, sexually undesirable, or emasculated.

But the media still depicts them in interracial relations. Here are some examples.

Please remember Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, and Sri Lankans are Asians too. Those countries are in Asia.

Um the ones stereotyped like that are the ones who actually ARE unmanly and desirable, mainly the fobby, unattractive ones. Asians who are good looking and westernised, however, are seen as more desirable and superior to most white men even.

I think you're confusing the word "stereotyped" with the word "portrayed". Those aren't the same thing. Stereotyping Asian men means to generalize all of them in a certain way. But you're talking about different portrayals of different Asian guys, which is not generalizing.
