A whole generation of Asian-American women writers have defined Asian identity through their Joy Luck Club imitation knock offs. Now at last the long awaited sequel has emerged the Boy Luck Club. If the Amy Tans wrote of the revolt of Yellow Feminism, in alliance with White MRA Husbands, against Asian Patriarchy. Now their sons are writing of their revolt against Tiger Mom. The rebels have become the Dragon Queens, and are facing new rebels in turn. The cycles of the Mandate of Heaven. The torch has been passed to a brave new generation. These Asian women are old hags now, and with youthful energy their Eurasian offspring are seizing the microphone out of their hands to be the new voice of Asian-America. I’m not saying its right for half-whites to speak for Asian-America. But it has been passed as hereditary property. The last generation of Asian-Americans was ruled by Asian women married to white men. And so its only natural that their Eurasian children inherit the dragon throne.
With all the talk of heroines revolting against Confucian patriarchy, Asian-Americans are the most matriarchal race in America. Ruled under the iron heel of the Dragon Lady, Tiger Mom. What other race has universally females as their face representing them in politics, civil rights activism, law, art, literature, culture, news, television, media etc? Whenever an Asian-America is called to speak on any issue, it is always a woman. A Feminist study critiques the fact that men are overrepresented in television, for all races except Asians of course. Except Asians could be the corollary to all sociological studies. Asian-America is ruled under the iron fist of the the Tiger Mom and her white husbands. When Donald Trump wants to understand the sneaky Chinese mind he turns to a whole list of fiction and non-fiction written by Asian women and their white husbands. When George W. Bush wants to understand Asian history, he turns to Jung Chang and her white husband. When White America wants to understand the
“traditional” Chinese family, they turn to Amy Chua and her white husband. All these women are old hags now. Its time for their Hapa children to speak.
When we Hapas were still young and in our diapers. When our moms could still point to the miracle of a “cute baby” and not the embarrassing gaping absence of cute Hapa adult men. Asian women tried to speak for their Eurasian children the same way they have spoken for Asian men. Asian women post baby pictures for their Hapa sons, and even write dialogue for their sons, about how they have personalities just like mommy. Asian-American women novelists wrote stories of their Eurasian children being bridges between worlds. But now we Hapas are all grown up and we have seized the microphone right out of mommy’s hands. Eurasians are speaking for themselves, and this scares the shit out of white men and Asian women. The alliance of White MRAs and Yellow Feminism has been exposed. They tried to play both sides. Asian women sold WMAF as liberal and feminist, while white men sold WMAF as conservative and anti-feminist. Now they are collapsing on both fronts. Both Feminist and White Nationalist women are shinning a light on WMAF tyranny. They tried to be all things to all people, now they are collapsing on all sides.
Eurasians are the rebels now. Once our moms rebelled against their traditional Confucian parents, now we are rebelling against them. They have given us a bully pulpit. It is a great irony, that now that so many insane Eurasians are hitting the news, Asian women are doing more than anyone to draw attention to it. They are saying that Eurasian sons are an important part of the Asian-American community, and that the crisis of their sons, is a crisis that the entire Asian-American community needs to face. There is article after article by Asian women about the insanity of Eurasian sons, and how all Asians need to deal with this crisis. They are the ones who want to make their sons the posterboy for Asian-America. But they aren’t going to like what Eurasians have to say.
I don’t need an Asian-American woman novelist to speak for me, and write a book with me as a character, a puppet on her strings following her script. I can speak for myself. And more and more Hapas are hitting their late teens and early 20s and also speaking up now. No longer will they hide behind Tiger mommy’s skirt and let her do the talking for them. Its all bubbling to the surface now. The dark secrets of the WMAF family, all the dirty laundry is being aired.
It is fitting that Eurasians are the creation of women novelists. Because Eurasians are an idea that looks good on paper, but doesn’t work in reality. When faced with the overwhelming evidence of Hapa failure, the response is always it SHOULD work. These are the 2 best, most intelligent races mating, only good things should come out of it, empirical facts be damned. Hapas were fine when they were characters in Asian-American literature. Now that we are writing our own stories, our parents don’t like where this story is going to end.
