So being Asian my whole life, I finally know how it feels to be a hot white guy for a week.
The white guy comfortably gets 1.5 – 2x more messages than the Asian.
Or at the very least, an Asian who’s substantially more attractive than his white counterpart. All of the main characters on Queer as Folk were white.
Heck, all the main characters in the latest HBO gay drama Looking are white even though the show is set in San Francisco where a third of gays are Asian. And so I wanted to find out for myself what every gay Asian knows – no matter how hot or young you are, you’ll suffer the inevitable Asian “discount” that’s applied when you hit the dating/hookup market.
What better way than on the most shameless, unapologetic, and narcissistic venue: Grindr. I whipped out two phones, loaded Grindr, and put two similar looking jocks to the test: 28, 5’10”, 170lbs, muscular, 8”uc. Their profiles were exactly the same except one was Asian and the other white.
I carried around the two phones for a week to different cities and here’s what happened.
If you’re a hot white guy, keep on doing what you do best – being white. But not to worry, you’ll still have younger Asians flocking to you.
You’ve got twice as many guys lined up ready to suck you off or get pounded by you.
As a hot white guy, you can expect a near 100% reply rate.
In fact, you wind up with the problem that more guys are messaging you in a day than you can realistically sleep with in a month.
You’re pretty much a Greek god in the gay community and there really isn’t anybody you can’t get.
For others, you often find “no asians, no blacks” in dating profiles, which shows how racist and white-centric gay dating can be.
