This blog celebrates the beauty of Asian men by illustrating the depth and variety that is so often missed by those who make foolish statements like "All Asians look the same." It is primarily a photo blog, but I will also occasionally write comments related to Asian men and gay life as it relates to them.

Boxing



A fellow blogger pointed out to me this (not-safe-for-work) picture on one of my favorite blogs today. It got me thinking about how many pictures I have run across of Asian guys boxing. This question will probably display my ignorance, but is boxing particularly popular in Asian countries? Because I probably have more pictures of Asian boxers than of Asian guys involved in any other sport. It certainly puts to shame the stereotype that all Asian men are weak and feminine.



How can you not enjoy a sport where athletic men compete shirtless, get all sweaty, and need long massages afterwards?...

Let's not forget the vast number of Asian men fighting in extreme contact sports like Ultimate Fighting Championship and the 20 or 30 other similar leagues around Asia and the U.S.

These guys range in size from light featherweights to heavyweights. Most of them give me a raging erection...er, uh, show that they aren't feminine.

Seeing Asian men as feminine is merely racism. It should be opposed.

It's very true. There are feminine and masculine men of every ethnicity. The more I consider this topic, the more I am convinced that you are correct, it is a subtle (or perhaps not-so-subtle) racism that has brought the idea of Asian femininity so firmly into popular mindsets.
