Stereotypes about being a chink

People always have false assumptions about me based on my name or how I look like.. But heck im still Filipino and that people should someday learn not to assume or make "labels" based on how people look like or how their name sounds like.. I have to be honest though there are times where I judge people with how they dress but most of the time my assumptions of people based on how they dress are 80% true.. So I guess I have the street smarts or I am just good at guessing or maybe life is just unfair haha...

Anyways let me share to you the top 10 sometimes bad/good stereotypes I live with because I am a chink..

10. We only use chopsticks at home... - This is so not true! Just because I am a chink doesn't mean that we only use chopsticks at home, I wonder what gave them that idea!?! Its crazy we use the spoon and fork just like everyone else..

9. We are really stingy with money.. (Kuripot Alert!)
- Anyone can be stingy! This is one of the most common stereotype I heard from everyone which they say applies to all "east asians"... One time my friends were shocked when I treated them for lunch and said that they never expected me to be the type to treat people because I am a chink and they say all chinks are "stingy, money hungry individuals"...

8. We like to eat babies! - Where the eff did they get that information that chinks eat fetuses?!? Its crazy every single year or every new person I meet always ask me if I have tried eating a baby.. Its crazy! Why the eff would I want to eat a baby?!? Every friggin year or every new person I meet always ends up asking me this question.. My gahd! What has the internet taught you guys!

7. We are expected to know how to speak our mother tongue perfectly - I belong to a new generation of chinks who could barely speak or let alone even read perfectly the language used by our forefathers so please don't ask me how to speak a line of Chinese, Japanese, Korean or even Mongolian! I grew up in the Philippines like most of my friends and so it's probably expected that I wouldn't know how to perfectly speak my original mother tongue.


6. We are not circumcised -  I do not know if this is a good thing or bad thing but I doubt this applies to all chinks. I know of many chinks who are or are not cut.  Does it even matter? Well another fun fact for you guys one of us (either Me or Cheng) isn't cut. I mean what is it about getting cut? Well one of us got cut due to constant peer pressure but still this doesn't make sense just because we are chinky doesn't mean we are uncut. Though there really is nothing wrong with being cut/uncut.

5. We are not very blessed in the "bird" department -  What is their basis on this? In comparison to my friends at the gym and my other chink friends. I don't think we are not well endowed in the bird department. I mean Ive seen a lot of birds at the gym and they come in all shapes, sizes and cuts. I hate getting teased about this though it doesn't feel very comfortable.

4. We have too close family ties and they always provide for their children - again this doesn't apply to all chinks.. Most chinks I know have dysfunctional families and even my family has their fair share of family related issues... This maybe true to some but not all... Some of my chink friends are forced to work their way to get what they want and need. Which is probably why some of them end up resorting to getting things done under the table and this probably a good thing so that we will all have a lesson to learn that getting money is never easy and that we would have to work hard for what we want and need. I am pretty sure there are some people that need to know this instead of resorting to stealing and killing.

3. Most of us are hopeless romantics -  because all we think about is how to make money they say we are so desperate to get lovers and most of us only get our partners through arranged marriages.. So not true! What century do we live in? Oh my oh my! They say that we usually love through money.. Whoever said true love can be bought and not found?

2. We like to fck our helpers and workers - so now they say that we are horny maniacs.. Well again this doesn't apply to all.. But if they think we are horny individuals that can last long in bed then thats a good thing but if they think we are nymphomaniacs then nevermind.. haha

1. Most of us can't speak english - wow.. even in the Philippines they think we can't speak english.. seriously.. like really! again this doesn't apply to all :)

    1. What really?! Well I get teased a lot because of this but it would be pretty weird to prove them wrong just there and then.

  2. PART 1

    Again, I am still amazed that the Filipino population survived in 2000 despite the fact that majority of our people are mentally-challenged (just look at the Senate and it is enough to explain it). Anyway, I'm being very critical and racist towards my own.

    10. Chopsticks- I am not surprised if Chinese-Filipino families use spoon and fork just like everyone else. What is surprising is that some Chinese-Filipinos don't know how to use chopsticks.

    9. Stinginess- I just like to believe that the Chinese people have creative ways of producing wealth and know their financial priorities. And I don't believe that stinginess is an attribute of a certain ethnic group or people. For example, I believe that I am stingy and yet I'm a Tagalog Filipino. Ilocanos were believe to be the stingy type of people and yet all of the Ilocanos that I know here are probably friends with Imelda because they can't keep themselves from compulsively buying expensive shoes and bags.

    8. Eating babies- thank you Internet for feeding the new generation of morons. I remember seeing those pictures circulating in the internet. I've always been waiting for somebody to prove this scientifically and put it on youtube, wikipedia, google or on a blog. Because you know how morons are, they lack logic and they only believe in the internet. I bet Jesus would choose the internet when He returns so that morons will believe his Second Coming.

    7. Mother tongue- it's really a pity that you don't know Chinese. China is the new America for chrissakes! I still can't understand why is the Philippines still clinging to opportunist America when our opportunities are in the very yard of our nearest neighbor. I have plans of studying Chinese. Maybe next year, because this year i need to study French.

    6. Circumcision- Yeah, what's with the circumcision thing? Italians are uncut, and yet they produce some of the best pornstars in the industry against the cut Pinoys who have produced... NONE. The problem with Filipinos is that we are so used to being conventional that it's almost like religion, and being uncut makes you a lesser man, when the truth is, circumcised guys are missing a lot in terms of sex (some doctor once said that uncut guys enjoy more the sensations and thrills of the act than cut guys). Circumcision is nothing but a big help for us (yes, I'm cut) to clean our department- nothing more, nothing less. It doesn't even help a boy to grow! Goodness we're still small people. Italians are uncut but they're so tall!

    5. Bird department- In a study done in 2010, Chinese people don't have the smallest dicks in the world. They actually played fairly well together with caucasians. India was declared to be the country with the smallest dicks. But really, it's still a case to case basis. To some women (and men) size matters a lot, but to some it's totally not a big deal, and there are still some who refuse to be with a guy with a gargantuan phallus (I know one who is literally scared to date Afro-italians and Africans).

    4. Family ties- This is plain stupid. The best example of this is the typical Filipino family, especially those fucking tards in politics. One politicians has son, daughter, uncle, nephews, nieces, comadres, compadres, ninong sa kasal, ninong sa binyag, ninong sa boyscouts at girl scouts, kapatid sa labas, first degree cousin, second degree cousin, third degree cousin, the cousin of the third degree cousin, the biyenan, the hipag, the adopted daughter, the queridas, the mistresses, the first wife, the second wife, the third wife, the secret fuck buddy, the boyfriend, the girlfriend.... whew.... the daughter of his wife from some affair, the lolo, the lola, lolo's cousin, lola's bestfriend, and many others that i think the comment box wouldn't be able to contain. THAT'S HOW A FILIPINO FAMILY IS. And they say Chinese families are like that. Duh!

  3. PART 2- Baka hindi kayanin ng comment box eh so hinati ko na lang...

    3. Hopeless romantics- I love through money, and I love money. I'm not even Chinese. And besides, this is not really an exclusive case of the Chinese people but also of Filipinos as well. Some are actually driven to desperation that they opt for ugly creatures. Or maybe I'm blind and that's what they call true love. I don't know. Love has never been my expertise.

    2. Sex addicts- that's really uncalled for. Let us analyze the situation. China's population is hitting more than a billion people but their territory is large enough to keep its own, so it's proportionate. Philippines on the other hand is a small nation and our populations is hitting almost a hundred million. And every February 14, hotels and motels are plagued with shocks and earthquakes of unspeakable magnitude. By November, hospitals and clinics are swarmed with screeching women in labour. Now you decide who's really fucking the house help and workers.

    1. English- I think it's not a big deal if we know English or not. European countries managed to get on with their lives and economy after the war without English. And for the record- in the European Parliament, French and German have greater importance than the English language. I remember when we were training for the European Youth Parliament, I was disqualified because I know English but not enough French. Fuck English! It didn't get me anywhere! So what? China is now a super-economy and most of their businessmen and investors do not know English. So ano ngayon? Pa-english english wala naman din pala!

  7. i studied in a Chinese school here in Manila when I was in elementary. Divisoria was our playground and let me tell you my classmates are not kuripot! Their parents are but not the kids.

    I agree that not all Chinese-Filipino kids can speak Chinese fluently. I'm pure Filipino so it's understandable for me to cheat during the Chinese classes, but my chink classmates cheats as well like in Hwa Gi and Chong Hap. Also, we hate Chok bun, the whole class in unison.

    For the uncut bird. Not true. There's only one in our class that's uncut and being the resident gay guy of the batch, I saw them all, most of the size are normal but some are relatively larger than the usual especially those with thin builds.

    Any hoo love this post! mad eme remember my friends back in elem!

    2. sadly i cheated my way to passing my Chinese language class. it was just too much to handle for me at that time.

    3. Agree!!! Chinese classes are just WOAH!!!! But I do appreciate some of the books that we read like the one about Fu Zi Li Sa (Jose Rizal) and Mah-Nee-Lah (manila). The books were really for Filipino-Chinese ancestry talaga so it got me interested in rare occasions. Of course let's not forget the Swan Sut class. Math na nga sa English Class, may Math pa ulet sa Chinese class!

    5. I can relate to this..I used to study in a Chinese school back in Elem and HS. Well known tlaga ang mga chinese school for corporal punishment pinapalo kami pag bagsak..

      grabe talaga ang disiplina na piniiral nila, pero ok lang, positive naman ang nangyari sa kin, akalain mo kung mag test kami 1 to 20 if 15 ang tamang sagot mo at 5 ang mali, wew limang palo ang matatanggap mo sa palad mo gamit ang ruler, sakit non ha...
