Rice Kings and Rice Queens

I was reading Rice Daddies, and came across a term I've never seen before - rice kings. Apparently a rice king is a nerdy white guy who only dates Asian women (and we all know of at least one, right?)

So I thought, I must be a rice queen, because I'm an Asian woman who's only ever (with one regrettable exception) dated white guys (and I've had my nerdy times too).

But no - a rice queen is a gay white man who only dates younger Asian guys - not to be confused with a potato queen, who is a gay Asian male who only dates white fellas.

There is a whole world of terms for men's dating habits, out there.

Maybe that makes you a Potato Princess? :)

I've met one or two of these guys. They LOVE anime and school girl outfits. I've even been to a rice king bar once. They had kareoke selections in Korean.
I just want somebody who will drag me to loads of art house movies.
Does that make me a potato?

No, a Popcorn King.

JB wondered what type of rice people were. Maybe I'm short grained Uncle John's rice.

I've never heard of these terms before either. I'll never remember that potato queen term b/c its meaning seems a bit hazy so I'll just have to make up my own.

Good gravy I've got a tremendous backlog of posts to browse!

By the way, that was an interestin' link about the history of those ANZAC cookies.

tara: or ms. potatohead?

nigel: there are bars for Asian guys who want to meet white guys??

As for you, perhaps your fondness for arthouse movies makes you a sweet potato :-)

eb: In that case I wish I were wild rice ;-)

glomgold: They must be fairly obscure, if none of us have heard of them before. Yeah, the history of ANZAC biscuits is interesting.

Nope, white guys and asian girls.
There's a bar on Oak Park,Michigan called Royal Kubo known for kareoke contests, I thought it would be a hoot to attend one and the above mentioned was the clientel.
At any rate I was too old for that bar. Over thirty.

nigel: right, of course. I can't see why it'd exclude over-30's though. It's not as though the guy isn't going to look old enough to be her dad anyway.

darth: I think that's called the natural order of things...
