That’s it! I don’t like people stuffing me into their small “classes” of people and thinking that I should be treated like the rest of “them.” In fact, I don’t think my dog liked the classification she was given either. Even she could feel the reverse discrimination when being called a “white person” dog.
There are things I enjoyed but had to hide because of how people would treat me - even my BFs. The love of metal, rock, headbanging, guitars, snowboarding, surfing… mixed with an addiction to tennis, math, science, and completing as much college as I could in HS made me a total anomaly.
I guess calling me an Ameican Asian Anomaly (AAA) might work.
A nurse approached me about the music I listen to. All they did was criticize rock; they didn’t hear the Christian lyrics. If they must know, I also like Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, and Nirvana.
Yeah, that rock realization shocked me too when I picked up my guitar. You’d think mosh pits & headbanging were enough of a wake-up call for this Asian.
Don’t worry, I don’t do the pit bit. I saw a real one start up in front of me out in San Jose. I’d be crushed.
I’m an Asian military brat (home grown American), born again Christian (2005), rocker (1st bout of whiplash @ 16), and DnB raver (not the glow stick kind but that looks fun). Oh, can I throw another bit to screw with your mind? I also LOVE country music.
All of the above is included in this rare secure IT package of happy geek.
