Being Asian means that when I walk down the streets, I am catcalled with “Ni hao ma! ” And that’s why we can’t pretend that yellow fever is nothing more than an innocent preference for straight black hair and almond-shaped eyes. It began when the United States first established a military presence in Asia during World War II. Approximately 200,000 Japanese women were enslaved by Japan as prostitutes and serviced American soldiers after the end of the war under the “Recreation and Amusement Association.” This practice continued through the Korean and Vietnam Wars, with 85 percent of American soldiers reporting having sought a prostitute. Now white men and Asian women meet each other as classmates or colleagues, more or less equals.
This led to the creation of local sex industries around the military bases, where thousands of women were coerced into prostitution for the sole purpose of servicing U. As a result, some of the first encounters American soldiers had with Asian women were in the context of being sexually serviced. And when white men and Asian women begin dating, it’s often because they have a genuine romantic connection, not because he views her as a commodity.
Yellow fever is dangerous because it strips away the individual identities of Asian women, reducing them to nothing more than an unfair stereotype of their race.

There is nothing wrong with being a white man who is attracted to Asian women.
Many times, it is a subconscious desire that you can’t really control anyway.
Even worse, it suggests that perhaps they are viewing Asian women more as one-dimensional objects than human beings.
Objectification is already something that all women face regardless of race.
After all, most men today are not even aware of this history.
