8 Asians has a wonderful article that discusses this strange stereotype with "The Perfect Villain: Straight Asian Men" :
We Asian women never say generally “men are horrible.” We say “Asian men are horrible.” We ourselves buy into the rumor that somehow Asian men are more misogynist than other men. The complaints ring universally: Asian men are more abusive; Asian men are more chauvinistic; Asian men are weak; Asian men fail to protect their women. Why?
Why don’t we take straight APA men seriously? Is it a matter of invisibility? No. We see them. The truth is, we don’t really like them. They’re villains. They represent male dominance. Heterosexual dominance. And before anyone can do a doubletake on the logical fallacies there, we got the waves of APA women feminists who reinforce the villain archetype with narrative after narrative of straight APA men who fail to protect women, because whether or not we realize what it is we’re doing (*cough* traditional gender roles *cough*), at the heart of it that’s what women want: men to be protective. So it isn’t that Asian women believe the crazy villain stereotypes of Asian men; it’s that we don’t necessarily see them as protective over us, and so subliminally it’s easier for us to buy into the overt stereotypes, or worse yet, generate them, and then proceed to ignore and dismiss the rational straight Asian men who challenge those stereotypes
What is it that creates this very dominant stereotype? in your experience – is there any "truth" to it?
This is all bogus. This is the reason why all the BS in the media keeps going about the Asian men. You think Asian men are ALL sexist pigs? Well, newsflash, I know more White guys who are rude to women and total sexist pigs than I know Asian, and I know MANY Asians. Some of the most respectful and protective and kindest men on Earth that I have met were all Asian. They MAY believe in gender roles, but most are responsible about their position in a relationship, and take their role seriously. So, this whole bogus about Asian men being villain is sut a pile of Bull. This Asian chick who said this about her own men should open her eyes, and maybe wander in higher level social circles, where there are more educated men. *cough* She should just shut up and sit down and admit she has a fixation for White guys; No need to bash on Asian males just because she has an obsession for the other folks. I totally find irritating all these Asian chicks who worship all these White guys, who, really, are in no way better than Asian men.

Hate to disagree there but I've lived here 3 yrs and I have to agree with the writer. There are far in and few in between yet stereotypes 90% of the time ring true. Chastising here for her personal observations and preferences is lame at best. I longer drink and walk in the streets because of fear of being jumped simply because I am white. I know plenty of decent Chinese men yet they are few at best.

“Asianmen are horrible”, i am not agree. Don't mind. But why are you saying this as you have any bad experience or what is the reason behind this to say.
