嗨 我是利瓦 我和来自Asian Boss的朋友凯在这里
Hi I’m Liv and I’m here with my friend, Kei, from Asian Boss.
今天 我将在这一带采访几个人 问问西方女人对亚洲男人的
Today I’m asking the general public about some of the stereotypes the Western women
have about Asian men.
Let’s find out.
What do you think about Asian men. So what sort of stereotypes have you got associated with them?
Let’s start with the positives first.
Career focused, I guess.
Smart, motivated to succeed in like business.
They are very nice boyfriends.
And they look after their girls and shower them with gifts. So I guess that’s a good thing.
May be a little shy, especially in clubs and stuff.
But they are nice. They’re really lovely.
I envision people in fancy cars smoking. Asian guys in this fancy souped up car with the
cigarette hanging out of their mouth,
but they look really classy, still.
They all hang out in Karaoke bars and all go to Asian restaurants and things like that.
I would say they keep to themselves.
Very good with maths.
I think they are quite good at science and mathematics.
I don’t ever find Asian men seedy or overly flirtatious.
Always very polite and genuine.
仔细想想 我在健身房遇到几个亚洲男人 他们很性感
Look actually, there are a few Asians at my gym that are really hot.
Any negative stereotypes that are surrounding Asian men.
You can be as honest as you want.
很固执的按照他们的行为方式 非常 某种程度上 很传统
Fairly stuck in their ways. Very, sort of, traditional.
Many of them are addicted to computer games, I think.
And yeah a bit shy when it comes to talking to women.
From my perspective it’s usually the height thing that people say.
I’ve heard that they have small penises.
About possibly their package
Do you think that stemmed from the media and having watched movies and that sort of thing,
Probably more movies and just like making a joke and everyone just caught onto the same
joke, I guess. I’m not really sure.
大多数来自电影啊 笑话啊 还有些喜剧演员
Yeah most likely on movies, jokes, a lot of comedians.
关于中国或者亚洲的演员 电视明星 名人 你能想到哪些？
In terms of Chinese or Asian actors or TV personalities, celebrities, can you think of any?
Not that I can think of at the top of my head now.
There is the guy on Hangover.
There is another guy, Jet Li? He’s hot.
Or Bruce Lee. Or is he a cricketer.
Yeah like the kung fu guy, what’s his name?
没错 成龙 我知道他 但是
Yeah, Jackie Chan. I know that one but
otherwise I don’t think there are many famous Asian guys.
That Psy guy, that Korean guy.
You don’t tend to see a lot of Asian actors or celebrities.
Maybe like Asian celebrities that are within Asian culture but not much in Western culture.
Thank you so much, Liv, for the interview.
What is your take on Asian stereotypes?
Obviously, Asians have a traditional stigma attached to them in a Westernised society.
我相信 你也知道 传统的 遵守规矩的 整洁的
I believe, you know, being traditional and well kept, groomed
having a great education is very important.
But I feel like Western women sort of take that for granted and they might think:
“啊 他有点内向啊”而不是“哇 这个男人好帅啊”
‘Ok he’s a little bit of an introvert’ as opposed to ‘wow, this man is really fantastic.’
I feel like maybe there should be more media attached in a positive way to the traditional Asian men.
So basically, by having more Asian role models that you could look up to,
you could make a change then.
