Don’t get me wrong. I think I’m awesome. I’m pretty tall for an Asian guy. For a Vietnamese guy I’m like Paul fucking Bunyan. I love Karaoke. I’m a decent wage earner, considering that I’m neither a doctor, lawyer, banker, nor YouTube sensation. I used to drive a Toyota.
But there’s problems that make me a non-option for self-dating. Like the whole patriarchy thing. And my middle class striving. And my small hands. And my being from a country with a long history of colonization and rape from foreign powers that colors nearly every aspect of my socialization.
