If your friend was an American, that person should have known those eyes were called slanted eyes, not slanting eyes. Or even better almond eyes. I've never heard of slanting eyes.
i am very glad to see that most of you are like China.But to my understanding the "slanting eyes" is not to describe its shape but a kind of way to watch something.Just try to look at people in 45 degree vertical ground but not facing directly. then , we call that people who look at orthers is a "slanting eyes man". Oh, i am very sorry cause my English is not strong enough to express that state.
