Marie Claire: Asian women are trophy wives

This subject gets rehashed every few months, and this article in Marie Claire magazine by Ying Chu doesn’t add much to the discussion.

The article just seems to point out that a number of rich and powerful white men are married to Asian women, so therefore, they are trophy wives. Woody Allen and Soon Yi-Previn have been together forever, so there’s nothing new to report here.

There’s been some chatter about this on Twitter and at 8Asians, The Frisky and YouOffendMeYouOffendMyFamily, but no comments on the Marie Claire site, surprisingly.

I didn’t really see the point of this article. But maybe my eyes just glaze over now when this subject is raised.

What’s your reaction?
