glasses = “less Asian”

I love glasses: "because I look less Asian."

Couldn’t help but notice this gentleman in a Chicago Now slideshow of glasses-wearing Chicagoans.

John loves his glasses because he looks less Asian. Strangely, they make him sound like a self-hatin’ douche.


Thanks, Nite, for reminding me of this slideshow the other day. I guess we’ll have to file this in our mutual “WTF, Asians?!!!” case files. In the meantime, I’m gonna be singing “What up with that?!” until this makes sense.
