The impact of squares on profiling perfect partners
Meerwald, A.M.L. (2010) The impact of squares on profiling perfect partners. In: Gender and Cultural Studies: Thinking Inside the Square Seminar, 24 May 2010, Perth, W.A.
Recently I caught up with some uni girlfriends and we were giggling about old boyfriends when one said to me, 'Eh, Aggie, your boyfriends were not Chinese, leh? And then I find you on Facebook, and you are married to an ang mor ah! Why you never go out with Chinese guys, ah?'
My other friend chipped in, 'Yah, Chinese guys are so …,' and added wistfully, 'That's why Michael was so different.'
Yes, Michael was different. I have never met Michael but I've seen him on Facebook cos he’s married to another friend of mine, and I knew exactly what she meant. Though Chinese, he didn't fit the square. (Agnes, autoethnographic narrative)
