Okay, our forum is slowly dying...
I feel like I'm back in college when I joined those filipino frats and tryin to motivate fellow students in making them aware of our culture,
coz all the damn asians disappeared on this forum :(

anyways, yah the title says it all! What are your pet peeves about being asian?

Here are a couple of mine:

I hate it when everyone thinks that if ur asian, that means ur a bookworm and nerdy smart.

I hate it when my mom always reminds me of how hard it was for them when they lived in the philippines and goes on and on about how to be a good girl etc.

I hate it when I have like so many relatives named "Boy", "Baby", and Maria! LOL

I hate it too like when I'm on the fone with some customer service person or whatever, and i give them my last name (which is a spanish surname) and then they start talkin to me in spanish. LOL

i absolutely hate it when guys think that ALL filipino girls are the horniest/easiest and PYSCHO...where do u guys get that from?

i have tons of other ones but can't think right now.

what are urs???...

and if ur not asian feel free to give us ur interpretation of ur asian pet peeves...
no bashin now :(
