The point is the details of the relationship like that are part of how it is played. If the girl is emotional dependent to act as a fetish, that is this trope. If the girl is not emotionally dependent, just so ridiculously shy that it's funny...it's still this trope.
Not . . . exactly.
There has to be a power dynamic. Simply being shy doesn't make her this trope, unless the guy is overtly dominant by contrast. Otherwise, a shy asian girl who dates a shy white boy counts for this trope, and that's People Sit on Chairs territory.
It's holler time then.
In the meantime (because I'm a little busy with other stuff right now), anyone mind compiling a list of other pages that need their definitions tweaked to be in line with these changes?
I won't argue that there isn't a better name out there. (I do think it's the best of what we've got so far, but YMMV as always.)
However, at this stage, I'd think we'd have to start the crowner from scratch if we wanted to introduce more names. So the question being if it's worth it to go through the whole process again?
It makes me cringe not because it's politically incorrect, but it's awkward-as-hell sounding. Seriously, this really doesn't need an anti-PC name, especially if we can't figure out how to make it sound un-awkward and un-tryhard.
Alternative Titles: Me Love You Long Time

Vote up names you like, vote down names you don't. Whether or not the title will actually be changed is determined with a different kind of crowner (the Single Proposition crowner). This one just collects and ranks alternative titles.
This trope is about unequal relationships between Asian women and white men, in which the latter hold the power. It is NOT about:
Prostitution (Ok, that is sometimes part of it but not enough to deserve mentioning in the name)
Any relationships between Asians and white men. Thus, please do not add politically correct options to the crowner
