I'll bite.

This is one of the driving forces for dating abroad for Asian men.

The article seems to have been written some time ago. Although the situation with Asian men typecasting and stereotyping continues to be a problem, I'd note actors such as Daniel Dae Kim and John Cho did not have to play the Asian type-cast character roles like Jay Chou (Green Hornet) and Rain (Ninja Assassin). Also, Steven Yuen is probably the only character in "Walking Dead" who gets laid on regular basis, with the character's white GF Maggie.

I feel for Asian guys in a smaller globalized world, Asian men are overall fem looking and that look may work for Asian women but is a death nail for Asian men.

That site dates back to the mid 90s'. It's not up to date. You can tell just by looking at the design of the site. Things ARE changing. 2013 and 1992 are completely different.
