Mauwie, whether your spelling is off because you have slant eyes or bug eyes or even god forbid ‘betty-davis eyes,’ you’re the first person
I’ve seen to accurately answer the original inquiry. To be honest, this entire blog conversation has gone completely off track, starting with LadyV
who states Asians don’t have slanted eyes.
But she’s wrong.
It’s the term used in North American English to describe the type of eyes Asians have; nothing more and nothing less. It’s like saying a hill
does have a slant, rather it has it’s own incline or a decline…
HAH! when I look at a hill, I say it slants.
The reason I stumbled across this site is because I have several Asian friends who tell me you can tell if someone is Japanese because of an upward
slant, while Chinese have the downward slant, and other races have things in-between… or maybe…I may have mixed-up what they have said because to
me it really doesn’t matter how the face is structured, but who the person is… BUT, being blonde haired, blue-eyed (I think they’re bug eyes,
but not sure) and very fair skinned…most people think I’m from an Arian race (and many times the attitude that I’m akin to Hitler’s poster
child). Heck, I don’t really care, this is who I am…so,
Truthfully, I’m pretty much a mut from just about every one of the races you could think of, but as it seems, you really can’t tell what race
someone really is from their physical features. Therefore, I guess I will end my quest on what type of slant determines if you’re Korean,
Mongolian, Crab-person, extinct bug eyed, pissed-off slanty-eyed, or a politically-correct verbiage police monitor…
