I realize that it is being described here as an "obsession", but that information could still be mentioned. Puchiwonga (talk) , 3 January 2010 (UTC) I've pared this down again.
An article like this seems to assume that there is something odd about liking Asian women as opposed to liking: Asian men or black/Hispanic/etc. I realise that it is disputed by a couple of editors, but there has never been a genuinely stable version as far as I can tell, so there has been no consensus established for how much of it should be included.
I guess that would belong here, if I could find it.
Puchiwonga (talk) , 28 December 2009 (UTC)With respect, Computer1200's comment above is full of the "unstudied arguments" he finds in Bukaki Kid's comment.
Computer1200 (talk) , 26 December 2009 (UTC)If this topic is even necessary at all, could it be a sub-category of something broader, like Sexual preference, Racial sex preferences, or something along those lines?

If you want to make non-trivial changes to the article, I'd suggest creating a proposal like I did above and am going to do below.--Crossmr (talk) , 29 December 2009 (UTC) I think we need to come to a consensus on the definition.
To that end I'm going to list a couple of things and people can weigh in on whether or not they agree or disagree with the assessments, and it would help if people would provide sources that may already be in the article or not in the article for each position.
I don't think there are sources for all of these, I'm just putting in various combinations so people can either support or disagree with any of the various definitions.
But in terms of the asian fetish one, being used non-pejoratively, I've brought those up a couple times.
Specifically in reference to an architect and clint eastwood making 2 films with a japanese theme.--Crossmr (talk) , 29 December 2009 (UTC)support At least a couple sources I've found use the term in a non-pejorative sense to indicate what seems to be to be an interest and not an obsession, and which doesn't include a focus on women.--Crossmr (talk) , 29 December 2009 (UTC)support all of the reliable sources I've come across that use this term seem to use it as a neutral or positive term to indicate a general interest in all things asian.--Crossmr (talk) , 29 December 2009 (UTC) My comment got lost in the above discussion, so I'll paste the relevent stuff here: If this topic is even necessary at all, could it be a sub-category of something broader, like Sexual preference (currently a redirect to a page that is not completely relevant), Racial sex preferences, or something along those lines? I think it makes sense for them to be together, because there isn't that much to say about any of them individually.
Intuitively, a person with an asian fetish will likely overlap with my experience: No, because you haven't provided reliable sources that either make those claims or use the term in those ways. Further, all of these arguments might be used conversely against all Asians themselves who persist in living in the United States, exhibiting all of the characteristics in the lists of what "Bukaki Kid" uses to isolate those with his said "Asian fetish." By his definitions, we have a seriously gigantic number of Asians with "American-Fetish." Asians have moved here and stayed.
