Dealing with online trolls is an unfortunate reality when you share information about your personal life on the Internet, something YouTube personality and actor Natalie Tran knows firsthand. But what do you do when the insults get uncomfortably personal? After Tran, who is Asian, faced a wave of backlash for having a white partner, she made a documentary exploring the judgment Asian women face for dating white men. The minute piece, which was created in partnership with YouTube's Creators for Change program , tells us a ton about interracial relationships.

Earlier this year, I went on a date with a man who told me he had a thing for Asian women. We were sitting across from each other at a table in a fancy restaurant and he stood up to do a head-to-toe scan of me. I am sick of being fetishised because of racist stereotypes about "small and compliant" Asian women.
When I was in my second year of university, a stranger approached a friend and me on the streets of Melbourne, asking to photograph us for his website about interracial couples. A little taken aback, we told him we weren't together but had friends that might fit the bill. He went on to explain that many of his friends were Asian men who thought Anglo-Australian women just weren't interested in dating them. His website was his way of showing this wasn't true. After a fittingly awkward goodbye, I never saw that man or, concerningly, his website again, but the unusual encounter stayed with me.
