the title basically is what i'm asking...I'm 1/4 armenian, (located by turkey so you all know who don't and people i know have no clue where the hell that is...) but yeah, i'm 95% sure that it's in asia, so if you're from a country in asia, does that make you asian? last name ends in a ian too...bonafide armenian.

the "asian" thing is slightly different than "asia" as a continent

like you need to be from any country further east than India
#3
I think Armenia counts as "Eurasia", so that would make you a Eurasian. Congratulations!

Being a quarter something doesn't make you that y'know. My grandmother had Irish roots, but I don't run around in green, drinking until I pass out.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

It depends on what you mean by asian. Normally it would be someone who lives in the Asian continent, but traditionally when you think asian, you mean people from the "asian race", if there is such a thing, namely chinese, japaneze, vietnamese, korean, etc. i.e. those skinny people with pointy eyes and identical haircuts who are really good at martial arts and drawing cartoons.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

I'm Armenian too (100%), I'd consider it Eurasian as well.

Our culture and lifestyle is far more European than Asian anyway.

its kinda in west europe and east asia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armenia

you mixed up east and west

and like Wikipedia says, Armenia is a transcontinental country (Europe kind of ends somewhere on the Caucasus)

and being 1/4 of some semi-asian ancestry is not enough to be "asian"
eurasian works fine


apparently in UK english "asian" would denote south asian (india, pakistan...) while "oriental" would be for east asian
in US english "oriental" would be questionable regarding political correctness. "Asian" would mostly imply east or southeast asian

the bit I underlined Madmarius. Ive always thought "Asian" meant central Asia: India and Oriental:Japan China
#18
^ it's the other way around for me... doesn't matter, really.

Not asian in the sense of an oriental asian, but still the asian continent.

seljer, my bad mano lol i try to get that right next time. btw im from the uk and we would use the word "asian" to discribe japanesse people or korean people ect. oriental is also used but no where near as much as asian but it is also used for people that are from india and pakistan.

but really people just say that a any oriental or asian looking would just be called a japanesse man or women
