I'm actually with with King Zeal in that "docile Asian" shouldn't be part of the trope, so long as the pairing is blatantly uneven. Maybe mentioned as a common form of it, but not limiting the trope exclusively to docile Asian women. The real problem with the Trope Decay
in the first place was it kept getting used for relationships where race was a complete non-issue. There have been cases that have the same Unfortunate Implications
where the woman wasn't docile per se, but it was pretty clear she went with the guy at all because, hey, he's white and that's enough. I think ignoring those instances would be a disservice, since they're still blatantly in the spirit of those trope.
If anything, situations where the woman isn't docile and yet the relationship is blatantly imbalanced should be MORE notable for this trope.
