The idea that this is a trend is a myth according to a two-year Columbia study on racial preferences in dating.
1. I'm a white guy; one who VASTLY prefers Asian submissive women! It's my basic www.google.com search for submissive play partners, as shown below:
asian submissive site:sfbay.craigslist.org/sby OR site:sfbay.craigslist.org/eby AND inurl:cas OR inurl:w4m OR inurl:msc
-m4w -m4mw -m4t -m4m -t4m -mw4w -m4ww -w4w -mm4w -m4mm -bbw
2. Here's a somewhat different study (which is the point, every study is skewed) showing a preference for Asian women by white guys:
"researchers found that white men prefer Asian and Latino women to African American women as dating partners, and white women favor African American and Latino men over Asian men."
3. Studies aside, perhaps most revealing to me, once while traveling to China, I remember devouring a scientific journal I brought with me on the plane (unfortunately the name escapes me of the journal) where researchers studied, in detail, WHY there are vastly more WhiteMen:AsianWomen marriages than AsianMen:WhiteWomen in the USA. They concluded just what I would have. Men lift up; women step up (at least in marriage in the USA, according to the conclusions of the researchers). (Apologies for not having a link backing this up.)
Of course, YMMV, so, in summary, I'll only speak for THIS white guy:
Damn, I love the Asian attitude. Mostly I prefer Indonesian (personal experience); but most Asian-born women I've been intimate with are extremely and deliciously passive. They don't have much imagination (i.e., they just throw their arms up in bed and lie there); but my oh my, the pleasure of doing what you want, how you want, when you want, without argument nor fuss, is delightfully delectable. Plus, they're shorter, skinnier, and less experienced (it seems) and they don't age as much as the poofy white gals do. Nothing against white girls, mind you ... I just LOOOOOOVE those Asians!
As always, YMMV.
