The uncanny valley is used to refer to the creepy look of robots, dolls and CGI who look almost human, but just unhuman enough to be very eery. It ends up being worse than if they were just cute and cartoonish. Their very closeness to being realistically human, makes them more unhuman.
This is my answer to those who claim that as bad as the situation is for Eurasian men, it should be at least better than that of full-Asian men. I myself pulled on some of those tropes back in 2011. I said its possible that I might have some aesthetic advantages over full-Asian men, with my slightly ambiguous white looks, but that the
psychological issues of being emasculated had totally destroyed me. I now question whether there really is an advantage.
I sometimes refer to “Asian women” when really I just mean WMAF. And its important to remember that even among Asian-American women, the majority of them do marry Asian men. And AMWF, as rare as it is, does happen. Asian-American men are reproducing, even if at a much lower rate than any other race of man. So there is a contingent of women, who are into Asian men. Now given that whiteness is more attractive than yellow, shouldn’t I have an advantage over these men?
This is where the uncanny valley comes in. For women, white or colored, who want White men. There are enough white men to go around, even in Asia itself, that they don’t need to settle for a Eurasian man. Especially in the West, there are far more White men, than Hapa men. So if whiteness is what you find primarily attractive, it is easy enough to get the real thing and not some margarine imitation.
The same principle applies to women who are attracted to Asian men, even if their numbers are much smaller. If you are a FOBish Asian girl, who just wants to marry one of her own, you would have no reason to marry a Eurasian man. A Hapa man is less Asian, and has none of the connections to Asian culture or family. You are essentially getting all the hassles of marrying a white man, with none of the white privileges. He will be as disconnected from Asian culture as an ignorant ugly American. And if you are genuinely attracted to Asian male features, those same features will be less prominent in the Hapa man.
And the same is true for the minority of white women who might exotify Asian male features. To the extent that these white women, even exist, there are enough full-Asian men around for her to get exactly what she wants, and she doesn’t need to settle for the uncanny valley of a half-white man.
Therefore, Eurasian men have no big advantage over Asian men, with women who want white guys. Since its easy enough to just get a full white guy. While for women more attracted to asian features than white features, being a Hapa would actually be a disadvantage.
The Hapa girl, from that book I posted, hates WMAF as much as I do, and speaks my language. At the same time, she says that she is creeped out by Hapa guys. She feels that they are just white guys leering and fetishing her. She doesn’t see them as brothers. But as creepy white guys who just happen to have an Asian parent at home. In her words. So this progressive Hapa girl, who hates WMAF, would not want to date a Hapa guy. For in him, she sees a WMAF, a white male. She as a radical Hapa girl, would not want to form a WMAF, with a Hapa guy, she sees as a white guy. She has woken up from the White Supremacy of her WMAF birth. And the conclusion she comes to, is that Hapa guys are basically just white guys, when it comes to WMAFing them. She is referring essentially to the uncanny valley of Hapa males. When white features are a turnoff to you. You see them in the Hapa male.
Women of all colors, will always see exactly what they don’t want in a Hapa male. AMWF is rare enough. But when people point out to me that it does exist. I don’t take any courage in it. Because even if there are women who find Asian features attractive, they are in the exact same position relative to me, as those who find whites attractive. Eurasians are very small in number. And so if you are attracted to a race, its always easier to just find the race you like. And not settle for the Hapa middle ground. There is no reason for a woman of any race, who prizes whiteness to settle for a Hapa. My whiteness is of no advantage to me, when there are so many real full-white guys around. I’m only white, to the women, who don’t want white. Women will see in me, whatever they don’t want.
