Iím pretty sure that post you are replying to was sarcasm, and your post is even more nonsense then that.

Haven't heard of the effeminate stereotype, but even if there is that stereotype, it most likely did not come from the first wave of Chinese immigrants to the West. The first immigrants were railroad workers, can't even be considered an effeminate job at all.

Stereotype probably came strongly after 1945.

There is nothing to explain. Cantonese cuisine is colloquially known to be more palatable to westerners when compared to cuisine from other parts of China.

The chinese american cuisine we eat here in the states is actually not that dissimilar to cantonese cuisine. They do eat beef and broccoli in southern China. Southern China does have a dish similar to General Tso Chicken. They do have fried rice and lo mein, and Dragon and Phoenix dish.

LOL, there are plenty of chinese takeout places in poor neighborhoods. In the deep south, there were chinese who sold groceries to Blacks. And the chinese diaspora started when the world was much more hostile, and dangerous. The Koreans had yet to leave their peninsula.

Oh, I beg to differ. Americanized Chinese food may be derived from Cantonese cooking styles, but there are differences in ingridients used. There's a difference between Western broccoli and the Chinese broccoli.

General Tso's chicken was invented in the US, I think New York City.

Go to HK or Guangzhou for the real deal.

What does that have to do with food?

Those 2 cuisines use spices and cooking methods that are already similar to western food styles rather then almost entirely stir frying and only steaming like in Cantonese cuisine. They use a lot more heartier foods, a lot more meat and much less vegetables. More potatoes and breads (flour dishes in general), less rice.
