I don't think so.
Urban educated Chinese women have a higher status than American women. There are many women engineers, bankers, professors...in China.
One-child policy further boosts the social status of women.

In family, women often control money and dictate lots of things.

How did you determine this? Also how do you define high status? The higher status you allude to comes across as a Chinese-centric cultural term that I'm not grasping. It doesn't translate well culturally or linguistically.

be careful of what you wish for. people from the sub-continent are notorious for having low regard for women.

and if you are the woman, you have to "buy" your husband from the parents. and after buying your husband, you have to serve him

makes no sense isnt it? if you buy him, he should be the one serving you

Higher status means possessing power, getting respected (not just protected), and having the freedom to choose.

Most countries in the world, have low-regard for women, including the USA......and I am fully aware of India's "dozier." I am not looking to marry one......all I said was S O M E of them are attractive.....

However, in the USA, that is changing very- rapidly, because more woman are getting high-end educations, and are saying....."ENOUGH IS ENOUGH." Many women of other countries, look-up to the American women, and that is a good thing, because EVEN the MUSLIM women are changing the status-quo.....!!!! Although, I do not recommend that they look after Hollywood, I consider that a cesspool....!!!!

I lived in Japan for 3 years, Korea for 1 year, and now Hawaii so I’ve seen my fair share of Asian culture.

East Asian men largely date East Asian women like black women largely date black men. It’s just a cultural thing.

It has nothing to do whether or not white women like East Asian men. You’re assuming that East Asian men like white women which the statistics largely don’t reflect.

(And putting this topic in the relationship section will only get it deleted, they’re strict about stereotype threads)

I don't find it offensive at all. I mean, to each of your own... Everyone has their own preference, right...? Is it because of our distinctive "Asian" look? Just curious.

I actually like black women more. Interestingly, most of my Asian friends would call me crazy if I say that. Maybe it's the same goes for white women when they say they like Asian men?
