I’m annoyed. Did you know that if you put in Asian as an internet search term that you get blinded by sexually explicit results? I’ve known this since my days at the University of Oregon Asian Pacific American Student Union (APASU) in the mid 1990’s when the WWW was just coming out. Well, nothing has changed. Now I’m sitting in the public library working on my laptop, and I look up to glance around and BAM – at the bank of computer terminals in front of me, the one in my direct line of sight has a 50 something White Man viewing Naked Asian Women. It was so obvious, I laughed nervously out loud before catching myself. Well, these library computer have those screen protectors that are supposed to hide what you’re viewing, but darnit, it doesn’t work for the bloke (thats me) sitting at the study table with the direct view. They guy looks likes so normal too, wearing a college sweatshirt, wirerim glasses, even healthy looking. I guess I can’t freak out too much, but it is such a truism, a cliche yes, but it seems so typical…the White Man fetish of Asian Women. You readers can tell me what else I’m missing, or not, but really, this is a mini-venting rant. It annoys me, and well, it disturbs me.
Thank god patrons can only use the computer for 60 minutes. He just got up and left.
