Debbie?

barndler says:

You? are beautiful

Warren Lauzon says:

The short version is? supposed to be out on PBS in 2013. Supposedly it will be available on VuDu this Fall, but that might just be a false rumor.

TippetyWhip says:

This looks very interesting. I too find women beautiful in China. They take pride in themselves. Canadians used to keep themselves clean and eat and dress well and talk without swearing and treasure relationships, but not anymore. Everyone is out to take advantage of? each other. Times are changing, and it’s scary. Chinese or not, I hope to find someone someday who shares my values. I look forward to your documentary.

?TM?B,?????????,????????,??????????

MisterBeaucoup says:

There are still north american women like that…. ones that are ladylike and respectable. Unfortunately, most men don’t want that. They’d rather have a promiscuous woman that wears? 10 pounds of makeup and wears dresses cut down to their naval.

blsessex says:

This stinky Asian woman is stinky. Most of the Asian fetish white dudes are? the repulsive, creepy, reject type no woman would ever want to touch.

mahzorimipod says:

MAI? ASIAN WAIFU

HiddenThoracle says:

dude. asian women are like any women- stop projecting your issues, hopes and dreams on? them. They’re not a solution to your deep seated problems.

TippetyWhip says:

I see your point, but also see real cultural differences. Americans copy what they see on TV, where the typical family is badly messed up. We have lost our standards. People in other parts of the world look down on us and say we are on the verge of collapse. It’s hard to accept, but it’s true. Anyway, thanks for reading my gripe.? I found someone special and hope you do too. Rgds

mrjustaguy89 says:

Debbie Lum is so? cute, she has very beautiful eyes.

Jerry Gu says:

mrjustawhiteguy89? I presume, haha.

mrjustaguy89 says:

No, I’m a mixed white/indigenous from? Brazil.

Dave McCombs says:

If “yellow fever” were a phenomenon, the competition for Asian women would be intense. Asian women would be choosing the funnest, handsomest and richest guys. Instead,? as the film shows, many settle for destitute, desperate men twice their age. It’s routine to see relatively old, unattractive Western male with a young, attractive Asian female, while the reverse is rare. No mystery. Asian women throng to Western men because they treat them with more respect and equality than Asian men do.

tommy levins says:

lol i hope steven doesnt get poisoned hahaha filth tyrant scum?

tommy levins says:

thats right they? are discusting

tommy levins says:

debbie lum is one of them typical ameranised fake idiots that trade there own and trade there new people i hate them? scum of the earth

tommy levins says:

stevens a dirty fucking american? kiddy toucher

harley williams says:

bravo Debbie for making? this film..Cant wait to see it

TheJenBong says:

Oh, please. Stop trying to perpetuate stereotypes. Just because a woman burps or swears doesn’t mean she’s not ladylike, and just because someone wears “10 pounds of makeup and wears dresses down to their navels” doesn’t mean that they’re promiscuous.
Fuck you and your “standards”. Women can act and dress the way they like and if you don’t like it, then don’t date them. It’s not up? to women to “please” men.
Oh yeah, fuck you.

Itsthemusic819 says:

Is there a problem with white women dating black men? No. Is there a problem with Asian men dating white women? No. Is there a problem with Black women dating Hispanic men? Again the answer is no.

SO WHY IS DEBBIE MAKING A BIG DEAL ABOUT WHITE MEN DATING ASIAN WOMEN? SHE SOUNDS LIKE A RACIST TO ME! THIS IS AMERICA DEBBIE, PEOPLE ARE FREE? TO MARRY WHO THEY WANT!

Bailey Preston says:

Hey Debbie! What do you call the obsession Asian women have for Western or White men?? Hmmm?? You’re not looking far enough. Einstein said if you look far enough out in the Universe you will end up seeing the back of your head! This sad sack didn’t have yellow fever rather he had “any woman who will have me” fever! And due to economic and population factors China today is a good choice for lonely guys in the U.S. without a chance here!!? Great movie/doc though! Can’t wait to your next project!!

liz liang says:

“unattractive Western male with? a young, attractive Asian female” – Incorrect.
“Asian women throng to Western men because they treat them with more respect and equality than Asian men do.” – Incorrect.
I am a Chinese female in my 30’s, living in Canada over 10 years. Believe or not, most white man got ugly Chinese ladies. You just cannot tell. And we still prefer Chinese men over other nation, because we share the same culture and value. Just like you guys do.

gravisan says:

you sir are an? idiot!

dingodingo82 says:

lol btw the director she is married to white man too lol so wtf she doing a documentary on steven she? should it on herself.

sichiPR says:

LOL, you are just some ugly shit who is rejected by women from your own race, some failure with? no education, and you happen to think Asian men are? inferior, so you think Asian women will love you, not to mention you are probably a child molester and thinks Asian women look like kids, you think now one know? everyone knows lol

barron8006 says:

Excellent point. The director is an assimilated woman that is projecting the dominant anti-male paradigm in the West. Since most of our social institutions are geared toward women, her issue isn’t finding a good husband or appreciating the kindness inherent in men from Western cultures, but in adopting the attitude and entitlement of her “White sisters.”
Documentaries of the inter racial dating experience are made in Asia–but? always from the context of the Asian woman selling out by not

barron8006 says:

marrying a Chinese guy. No one criticizes a Chinese guy marrying a foreigner. Only in the backward West is the man criticized for marrying a foreigner. I wonder? why african-caucasian relationships are not criticized–probably because they are primarily White women participating in those relationships.

ray foz says:

Please visit I Married a Chinese Lady. You can learn how I went to China to find my? wife. You can make it happen for? you? too! I? wrote a book that? tells how I did it. How I did? all the paper work without a lawyer. See over 200? color photos? to my? trips to China. You can leave? your? doubts behind and know how it is so? real.? Don’t let others discourage you, you can make it happen and find true love? and devotion for the rest of your life. Ray

LudwigBoltzmannLives says:

Yeah, yellow fever? is great. Communism, destruction of human rights, demented super-nationalism? So hot. Let’s keep on fetishizing communism leaning toward and touching fascism.

Herman Glimsher says:

Notice how? she makes an unattractive white man the focus of her story.

Herman Glimsher says:

Then why did you (or you parents) move to a? non-Asian country if you prefer Chinese “culture” and “value”?
