another reluctant expat
Have you heard Lady Gaga's song "Born This Way"? She uses "Orient" several times and I have to admit it bothers me.
nice google search terms.I think I'm going to start some anonymous blogs and google-bomb you by linking to your site with words and phrases that'll make you blush.
I too would like some pretty Asian males in my life.
These are search terms that lead some people to this blog, right? Okay, I can see how some entries might show up, but how does "shirtless" lead here?
I'm not sure that Korean people in Korea care that much about politically correct terms in English. I'd actually be amused if someone were to call me a plump occidental man.
"Oriental" to not considered offensive in some Western countries. From what I've been told (more than than and by multiple sources) in British English it's not really considered a slur. In fact, in British English there's a difference between Oriental and Asian. It's possible your searcher was using British English.
Haha I was mostly joking anyway. I don't really know how most of these phrases lead to my blog, but I'm pretty sure I have never in my life used the word "Oriental". And "shirtless" is equally curious.
One of my co-workers told me that the teachers at my school think that I have very "oriental manners". For what it's worth.
Mr. Spock -- Maybe you are the attractive Oriental man.
