Study Finds Disturbing STD Rates among Asian Americans

There's a disturbing research study out of Boston University, on STD rates among Asian Americans. Professor Hyeouk Chris Hahm led the study, after noticing high STD rates among Asian Americans while working for ten years as a psychiatric social worker.

What she found was troubling:

Moreover, the power dynamic between genders became immediately clear. Asian American women were four times more likely to have a STD than their male counterparts.“This was shocking,” said Hahm,“It was so much higher than the males.”

Accounting for the gender disparity, Hahm suggested that again, culture may be playing a critical role.“Condom use is hard in a culture where women are raised to be accommodating and polite.” She stated,“Asian and Pacific Islander women also have broader interracial dating patterns than Asian American men. This might explain why these women are exposed to higher rates of STDs.”

Over the course the study, Hahm unmasked some myths common about Asian Americans. She said,“There’s a perception that Asian Americans in particular aren’t practicing sexually risky behaviors. But we found that Asian American young women are at risk of high STDs. For instance, Asian American women had a higher prevalence of STDs than White women in both 1995 (10.4% vs. 7.7) and 2001 (13.5% vs. 8.3%). The incidence of STDs (not diagnosed with STDs in 1995, but developed STIs in 2001) among Asian American women was also higher than that of White women." Moreover, the power dynamic between genders became immediately clear. Asian American women were four times more likely to have a STD than their male counterparts.“This was shocking,” said Hahm,“It was so much higher than the males.” Accounting for the gender disparity, Hahm suggested that...“Asian and Pacific Islander women also have broader interracial dating patterns than Asian American men. This might explain why these women are exposed to higher rates of STDs.”

I think these findings definitely go against some prior conceptions about Asian Americans and sexually transmitted diseases. The 4:1 ratio of STDs among Asian American women to men is astounding. To see what this means, I looked up some global data of STD rates around the world, broken down by gender. In East Asia, and on every other continent, women have slightly higher STD rates than men, however nothing comes remotely close to the 4:1 ratio among Asian Americans.

It's unclear what the study means by "power dynamic," whether it means sexual power/demand, or power within the culture. One can speculate on a wide variety of reasons for why the STD rates are the way they are. I'll refrain from doing so, but nevertheless I thought it was noteworthy to bring up, as a point of discussion.

White women are beautiful.
Black and Brown women.. some are beautiful.
asian women look like 10 year old boys. No chest, no a.ss, no nothing. I think the only thing they have is their shiny hair. Other than that, WHAT A DISASTER. They have slitty eyes and a flat nose. Makeup doesn't even fix them. Only plastic surgery does. I have to admit that there are some hot asian women out there but their pretty much all plastic. I have never seen a beautiful natural asian beauty.
Don't start the bullcrap about "OHHH you probably got rejected by an asian women" no, i would never go out with one. Or look at one, it even hurts to look at one.
asian women, go back to china, korea, japan... wherever your from. There are many pedofiles waiting for you.=)

Ive wondered that too.. but then again.. you have those that go for black guys with big huge muscles. Ive come to the conclusion that alot of them are very superficial. Could be wrong tho lol
Well, for starters, women are much more heavily influenced by media than men.

We have a media that currently is dominated by imagery of attractive white people. That same media is also currently obsessed with showing black men in a positive light, too.

Yet this very same media pretty much ignores Asian males - unless it's an ad promoting diversity, in which case, you'll find white woman, black man, asian male or female combo. Notice that you hardly ever see an Hispanic male or female in any of those ads.

So it's really no wonder that Asian women go for white guys since they are portrayed as and widely regarded as the alpha male in society. And it's no surprise, either, that some Asian women also go for black guys too because of the positive stereotyping there, too.

I think it's just media brainwashing, not a hatred for their own kind or insecurity in themselves.

I disagree with the idea that Asian women see White guys as the alpha male in society. Maybe some, but not too many, and I am an Asian female, of course, there is more than one reason why Asian women go for White men. Therefore, no one should simplify all cases. In fact, White men want to look for some alternative as well, it is a two-way street.

Facts are facts it can cut like a knife to some referring to Asian women. There has been a huge decline with Asian women and WM. Let's cut to the chase yellow fever boomed after the Vietnam war guilt about the slaughter of g00ks lead to Asian fetish there have been research of that phenomena.. but like all trends Asian women have falling out of WM choice .This has happened since the beginning of the millennium. Since Asian women over the year's have been revealed there true personalities to the WM. As gold diggers,sneaky, money hungry, and a casino addiction. Before there papers and marriage they were what WM wanted a submissive women after there paper's that all shed. Which one WM has said there "a bit ch from he11 ' AS you can see Asian women are out and Brazilian women and some Latinas are in!
As you can see Brazilian women are the highest paid supermodel in the world Giesle who as German ancestry. Adriana Lima, etc... all South American women. And Matthew just married to he's Brazilian beauty as Matt.. all handsome WM are with WW, South American women...
Yes there are Asian women married with WM but always always are with OLD, average, nerdy WM. Now with many Asian American women becoming more and more obese are even ranking more and more as has beens. The Asian women embraced America with an open mouth you can live IN denial all you want facts are facts. Just saying You can hide from facts and not own up to them or face it and do something ABOUT it, or live in your own bubble you constructed
You asian women can live in denial facts are facts
And now Asian women are ranked #1with STDs.
And when facts are shown all they do is cry
Why, why, why..
You can close your eye's to the truth but a new studies has shown
ASIAN WOMEN ARE GIVEN THE BOOT BY WM
AND SOUTH AMERICAN WOMEN ARE #1CHOICE OF WM PERIOD. THE FACTS SHOW WM HAVE A EXOTIC BRAZILIAN BEAUTY ON THERE ARM
Even if the truth hits them ON the face denial is a bi tch to them. Referring to Asian denial women. If it walks like a duck quacks like a duck
YES it's a duck.
Facts are facts period case closed
You can see the Asian crazy female can't except WM have given them the boot and embraced REAL EXOTIC SOUTH AMERICAN WOMEN.
Asian women out! SOUTH AMERICAN WOMEN IN!! Yes you Asian women can blame Ww for all your gold digging ways and WM not wanting you. Button please except SOUTH AMERICAN WOMEN ARE THE NEW WM TROPHY WIVES. MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY recently married he's Brazilian beauty
What can you say Asian are #1 being denial. Jealousy is a Green monster named ASIAN WOMEN. What can you do when there ugliness comes raging out from the jealous unattractive Asian pan face.
Wrong not true the Asian troll can't except reality and lives in her own world called TOPIX.

Why is it that when I meet a couple which is a white male and an Asian woman, the guy always gives off a closeted gay vibe? I am not a hgomophobe, but I am not gay either. I sometimes get this weird gay vibe from white men with Asian women. It is as if they are with the Asian woman to cover up their gayness. I am not alone in this:

http://blogs.villagevoice.com/dailymusto/2010 ...

After talkiing to a buddy who told me that his gay friend married an Asian woman, I started noticing this phenomena. It makes sense, because Asian women who are not from the United States are not familiar with the white male "gay vibe". They are used to effeminate Asian male behavior, but since many of those Asian men are straight, they do not think anything is off. These white men are usually not that good looking, and the Asian woman is not that good looking either and barely knows English.

Anybody else notice this?

To be honest why asian women date in the mannerism they do is for different reasons. Superficial, white washed, very insecure nature to point out a few.

If they're strait out of asia they are use to having an older man in there lives due to the asian culture with asian men love their women to be youthful/young and submissive. Therefore they look up to older men as being more mature and settle. Women in general want security from successful men.

As for as the westernized asian women whitewashed has a lot to do with it but not all. Some are racial. Some preference. Some want their kids to look a certain way or color. Many asian women are jealous of other asian women thus this create a superficial individual who compete with her asian sisters of like culture. Many asian women are very into materalistic avenues. Some just want to be taken care of and she's willing to overlook body features.

These things and more I know from being very acclimated within the asian culture and communities.
