As I always try to say in my posts, I am stereotyping.
That’s what people do.
I sometimes agree with stereotypes and I sometimes disagree.
From my personal experience, some stereotypes of how Japanese people act are true. The same as how my stereotypes of Americans, Canadians and French etc, are sometimes true and false depending on my personal experiences.
I’m not going to sit and explain every situation when they are pretty similar.
The stereotype that Japanese people don’t speak their true feelings; as I said have proved to me as being a lot more common than the opposite.
On another note, most of the things regarding my post’s about the BF, are his own personal uses of ‘Japanese people’. I wasn’t offended that he thinks white people are like this or like that, I was offended that he felt that me BEING white was an issue. Not regards to any belief or suggestion that I’d be like this because I’m white.
Everyone has assumptions and schema’s based on their experiences and knowledge. You’d be lying if you said you didn’t.
The issue isn’t that I’m being stereotyped. That is just something you have to expect in everyday life. It’s the fact that my race was an issue. Different issue completely anon.
