Korean Americans Hate Gay Marriage Most
....The new Field Poll reveals that Korean Americans disapprove of same-sex marriage by a margin of 70 to 25 percent. They were followed in their dislike of same-sex couples by Vietnamese Americans (64 percent disapproval) and Chinese Americans (54 percent disapprove.)
%C3%A2%C2%80%C2%8BAfrican Americans disapprove of gay marriage by a margin of 49 to 38 percent, the poll finds, while Latinos support same-sex marriage by a margin of 50 to 41. About 53 percent of whites support same-sex marriage, with 39 percent opposed.

The supposed light at that end of the tunnel:
Field Poll director Mark DiCamillo said that while it's clear Asian Americans are the group most opposed to same-sex marriage -- and Koreans foremost among Asians -- the results also depend heavily on the age of those questioned. Younger voters, he said, show stronger support for gay marriage than older people "coming from traditional societies."

Polls are bullshit, made up by people financially invested in selling their polling services. Nowhere in this report does it indicate how many people were questioned (10? 100? 1,000?), or how they were selected, nor does it give other relevant data, like the age of respondents. Ya think maybe people willing to answer pollsters on random land lines might skew, um, older? Yet the poll publisher is all too willing to make sweeping statements like Korean Americans blah blah blah African American blah blah blah. Total bullshit.

The traditional East Asian view of homosexuality is hard to grasp for westerners. Discrete sexual activity between members of the same sex is not really a big deal, but everyone, and that means EVERYONE, has to marry and produce children. This is a non-negotiable duty. A couple who cannot have children is sad but a person who does not marry is a complete selfish failure and dishonors his/her family. Who you have sex with once you are married is your business, but you must marry and produce children.
So it's no surprise to me that East Asians would be most disapproving of same sex marriage.

According to 2005 statistics compiled by the South Korean government, approximately 46.5% of the South Korean population express no religious preference.
Of the religious population, 29.2% are Christian (of which 18.3% (on total) profess to be Protestants and 10.9% to be Catholics), 22.8% are Buddhist, and the rest adheres to various new religious movements including Jeungism, Daesunism, Cheondoism, Taoism, Confucianism and Won Buddhism.
A small minority of Koreans also profess Islam. Large metropolitan areas had the highest proportions of people belonging to formal religious groups: 49.9 percent in Seoul, 46.1 percent for Busan, and 45.8 percent for Daegu. South Korea had the third highest percentage of Christians in East Asia or Southeast Asia, following the Philippines and East Timor.
As in most countries, Pentecostal and charismatic Christianity is especially growing rapidly in S Korea, with Seoul's Yoido Full Gospel Pentecostal Church having 830,000 members (2007),the largest Christian congregation in the whole world!

I teach in Korea and my take on it is that Koreans seem to believe homosexuality doesn't actually *exist*. Or if they do acknowledge homosexuality, it's a "Western thing."
It really does seem to be different for the younger generation, though. My students probably wouldn't say they are "for gay marriage," but some of them would probably say gay people should be able to live their lives with dignity, without harassment, etc.
The older generation wouldn't feel that way, of course, but seriously, Korea is a pretty conservative - but rapidly changing! - society. Give it time.
As for the posters who remarked that anyone of a different race is a "foreigner" in Korea, that is absolutely true. One thing that will change Korea in the coming generation is the current influx of Pinoy, Thai and Chinese immigrants looking for "3D" work - difficult, dirty, and dangerous jobs that Koreans will not do. They are changing the racial landscape of Korea and I can imagine racial attitudes may also face a serious change. (Sound familiar?)

Three of the men (one fundamentalist, one Catholic, one Protestant) came here as little children with their parents (businessmen & professionals) & the others came to attend colleges & ended up staying. I've only discussed gay marriage with one of them (a Protestant woman), who says "I do not care what people do if they do not hurt someone -- everyone should be happy".

But Korean Americans are a special case. Their government did not allow them to come here until they were old or if they were a Christian convert - and they got the worst and most cultlike of the CIA's 1950s red scare Christian recruitment efforts (think Moonies), so their churches here tend to have a cult pattern.
Add to that a high degree of exclusivity and, frankly, racism, towards other Asian groups, and you have a special case.

Even though it was cut to bits, the entire audience gasped at the implications. I asked since religion is taboo, and "breeders" are restricted, they should be more open-minded. The answer was that the wealthy Chinese visit other countries, and do whatever they want in secret. Otherwise there's EXTREME conformity, and the entire family and relatives would be shamed if anyone found out. Interesting that the whole concept of male strippers for men or women, or male beauty is also shocking. Sex is also solely for the man; it's a business deal or obligation for the woman.

A heritage of racism and xenophobia is not venerable, but writers and editors let hateful Koreans off the hook because they come from "traditional societies"?

Got into an argument with my Korean mom about this over the weekend. She was waxing enthusiastic about Romney and it came up in the course of the conversation that she found the idea of gay marriage to be "just unnatural." I tell her she's welcome to her stupid beliefs but that she should not allow those beliefs to be legislated in a way that restricts the constitutional rights of anyone else. I point out to her that the establishment of a constitutional right to marry in a landmark civil case like Loving v Virginia is what allows her to be in an interracial marriage today and that it'd be hypocritical of her to restrict that right for others. Deaf. Ears. No wonder I'm in therapy.

Next car is going to be a Hyundai/Kia. Fudgepackers shouldn't be getting married. Period. Most of you can't remember to take your AIDS meds or feed your cats.
