It's true that some of the posts were culturally insensitive, but you are not helping anyone by responding in that way. Pretty much any post where you mention more than just a list of names, you are saying something negative and hurtful. Ignoring you seems to work all right for me, but it does get tiring.
    I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one noticing this. I've been wanting to say something for over a month now, but I just couldn't put my thoughts into the right words. Thank you dovah, and mclola, for doing that on this thread.

    As for the actual question, anime's what got me interested in the Japanese culture as well, and most of my favorite Asian names are Japanese.

    for girls:
    Rin
    Aya
    Chihiro
    Miyuki
    Saya

    for boys:
    Kaito
    Haruto
    Takuma
    Taichi
    Hayate

    Sigh.

    I am so done with the racism on this site. First the "name the plantation owner's daughter!" thread, now this? Not to mention the ongoing posts about Cohen and India. It truly boggles my mind that such hugely hurtful, deeply problematic stereotypes are being perpetuated -- and that only a handful of people care or are willing to speak up about it. If you're being racist, I will tell you that you're being racist. If you're being sexist, I will tell you that you're being sexist. Calling out ignorance is the only way to correct it. Period.

    I've also been active on this site for two years. Check my post and comment history. Obviously I've contributed pretty extensively beyond pointing out "cultural insensitivity" (is that what we're calling racism these days?) and providing long lists of names for posters who, uh, request long lists of names. Y'all n00bs?

    I somewhat agree with your original comment @augusta_lee, it doesn't help to stereotype, and it would have been better to ask specifically for South East/Eastern names rather than being so general. However the intent of this topic wasn't to discriminate, or be hurtful (just a misguided generalisation). There is no need to attack the original poster about this. You can call out ignorance without being condescending.

    You have contributed to the site, and a lot of it has been constructive and well thought out. I agree with you most of the time. But I feel this time you have gone too far.

    That is all I have to say on the topic.
