on new years eve I encountered a stereotype about asian men from my own sister:
My sister is not racist, she tolerates all races..and was estactic when I married my filipino husband, but on new years eve I got a shock from something she said. Here's the story:
I invited some people to come over for new years eve,my sister came early to help me set up. After my husband had finished all the hard parts of what we had to accomplish, he went to take a shower. As I was setting the table my sister says,
her:"wow you really have given up a lot"
me: "what do you mean?"
her: "in sex!"
her: "well ya know, asian men have small penises, you must not be satisfied by him"
me(so shocked at this point):" Kathy!( her name) that is such a stereotype, my hubby has a nice penis."
her: "oh, it's just, i've heard from a lot of people that they don't"
I know my sister didn't know better, and didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings, but what I'm really shocked at is that people still make stereotypes like this. What are some stereotype's you've encountered?
