Mostly you are an avatar, paid down to race, height, weight and a position that is sexual. You’re a thumbnail picture in a game title that may be as crude if you let it as it is brutal on your self-esteem.
I’ve stopped allowing the racial responses We’ve seen on apps, or received while standing in a club, get to me personally. “Not into Asians”, or the absurdly comical “No rice”. It reminds me of this graffiti I spent my youth with: “Asians Out”.
Often though, the comments catch you by stealth. You’ll see a good photo of a guy, then you scroll down and find out him saying he is not as a race that is certain.
