Q: Beauty in Race

I understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder however I believe that sometimes it can be severely overstated.  I am posting this because everyday I read an article where a foreigner usually a Caucasian male is talking about how cute Chinese women are. Disregarding skin color and tone, I believe that there are very attractive women within every race and ethnicity. I have been walking around this country for 3 months and I have not seen one Chinese woman that really caught my eye. Seriously, not at the 5 different airports that I have been to, not at the malls, supermarkets, oriental tower, or just even walking down these very busy streets. However, when I was in Kuwait, it was like every other woman caught my attention. They were extremely beautiful and stylish even when wearing their Abayas. Also, when I was in Afghanistan, I thought  some of the Afghan men were handsome and the women, generally were very beautiful. I remember telling one of my coworkers how attractive I thought some of the Afghan women were and he told me just wait until you get to Kuwait. Now I know that this is what some of you may think; The same way you view Arabic women is the same way foreigners(men) view Chinese women. 

 

And, yes that could be true but I think in some cases it may be more of a fetish for you guys. They are not any more attractive than an attractive woman of another race. In America, you can throw a rock in places like LA, Miami, Tampa, Orlando, or Atlanta and you are guaranteed to hit an attractive woman. I cannot say the same thing for here.  There are physical characteristics about Chinese people that maybe I don't necessarily find attractive or would no want for myself just like many of them do not like dark skin, however that does not mean that dark women cannot be more attractive than Chinese or White women. For instance, Beyonce is more attractive than Taylor Swift, Kesha, and Lady Gaga put together. Actually, I do not find neither Taylor nor Gaga to be attractive at all. Maybe Katy Perry & Miley Cyrus. 

 

I am only attracted to black men however I did meet many attractive Arabic men when I was in the Army but I cannot say that I was ever attracted to a Thai or a Chinese man.

You say it's all in the eye of the beholder but then go on to tell us that foreigners who are attracted to Chinese probably have a fetish, and that you didn't see any attractive women in China but in Afganistan and Kuwait there are plenty, and then some stuff about American celebrities and who is more attractive than who... all of which is based on YOUR opinion.

 

Like you say, it's all in the eye of the beholder. There is no right or wrong answer and opinions are just that, opinions.

 

I'm into Albino midgets with fat thighs myself. I don't understand how anyone can find any other look attractive but if someone wants to hook up with some hideous supermodel, or Beyonce or Katy Perry or whoever I just don't care.

You're comparing Chinese guys attractiveness to foreigners to Chinese women's attractiveness to foreigners, you have to be intelligent to know that is not a fair comparison. Chinese women are very feminine that's to a severely sexist culture. Chinese men are weak, rude, sexist, brutish and have disgusting habits. (Not all but 70-80%) Soooooo , really?

i have a couple of questions, seeing as you seem to have forgotten to ask one in this, post.

 

this is the Q&A section of the site, why did you not post this in the Community Blogs section?

There doesn't seem to be a question in your post other than a passive/aggressive monolog, as iWolf points out.

more like Viki and her verbal diarrhea, as she seems not to have any close real life friends.

 

And a second working alias?

i didn't think this site allowed that, as you are in breech of community guidelines and this allegedly (if there was a functioning Admin) leads to a ban. 

seems like a great way to 'like' all your own posts and comments and down-thumb twice all that you dislike.

but then i know there are alias's at work whose sole function seems to be to down-thumb any and all comments, or up-thumb or bounce 'harmonious' posts.

Being gifted with physical beauty is like doing well on Final Fantasy XV.  Some of us come right out of the box playing on Level Armiger, while others are perpetually stuck on Exploration.

Examples follow:

Can't blame you. Watch this video. Psychotic women we all have seen a few. But have you seen a psycho like this? 

 

She was yelling at her boyfriend who bought some 'toy', saying other people took their gf out on holidays. When her bf said she also bought her 'toys' on taobao see for yourself what she did next. No, this is not an exceptional case.

This argument has come up before... numerous times.

 

I think what it comes down to is interpreting ''cute' as 'thin, and young looking'. I find many Chinese women in their 20's and even 30's look a LOT younger (sometimes, this is a serious negative... seeing 25 year old women that, to me, look more like 14).

 

Also, due to genetics, culture and diet, many Chinese women are slim. Not always a positive, as the tendency to slimness is also a genetic tendency towards smaller breasts and butt...    (perhaps coincidentally, maturity as well...).

 

There is no denying that there are beautiful people all over the world (although, perhaps much harder to see in Antarctica ... (and you thought hijabs made perving hard...)). But, statistically, I think women are slimmer here in China than in the other countries mentioned.... but, that really doesn't equate to 'beauty' overall.

Your question is confusing to me.
What do you actually want to say?

If i am getting it right, you are saying that there are more beautiful women in USA ,and Arabian countries and very very less in China?

And you are unhappy someone mentioning chinese girls as cute on this website,Right?

I have been to thirty six countries and every state in the USA and my contention is china has the best looking girls in the world. Japan and Korea come close. I personally like Asian women as you may see and I am Caucasian.

Chinese, and more broadly Asian, cuteness can be extremely attractive even to a manly man with overflowing testosterone.

Even though her name sounds like Goose, I would totally date my friend GuZi if I wasn't already married, not that my wife is any less adorable, they both stand equal in my eyes.

The friend in question: https://imgur.com/gallery/YnzXV

No worries I asked her before posting the photos that come from her Weibo anyway.

As far as Chinese girls go, it's true that they have less pronounced body curves, but it's all relative. Like for example they have smaller breasts but as.you can see my friend got quite the nice pair, not sure how big but they sure look bigger on her small Asian frame than they would on other races of women.

I would say that in any and all countries, roughly 10% of the people can be considered attractive, 80% average and 10% ugly. There is no country with more attractive people than others. What you perceive as countries with more beautiful people is a matter of personal taste.

I read somewhere that black women were the most unlikely to date outside their race due to being very insecure. Statically according to many websites black women are the LEAST desirable gender/racial combination in the world, so perhaps the insecurity thing has some truth to it. 

 

The top spot for women? Arabic women.

(1): Why is it important to raise this topic on a China expat forum? Some of us are attracted to Asian women, some of us are not. Our attractions are our own business, and the way society tries to paint this particular interracial relationship as more deviant, perverted, opportunistic or unwholesome, is just distasteful institutionalized racism.

(2) On the topic of institutionalized racism, Asian women in the West have won precious few beauty pageants, despite being quite well liked by western men. It's so disingenuous. We're allowed to fuck them, but neither our relationships with them, nor their beauty, is allowed to be respected. All to appease the race threat white women perceive. Black girls are well-represented in the media, and form a strong minority group that is respected. But Asians have to start the struggle from scratch. Fuck off with this racist attitude already.

(3) And on the topic of white women and their racial-territorial reactions, let me point out that, as you pretend to respect that "I understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder however", the correct follow-up would be a discussion of Neoteny, a human sexual selection in favour of juvenile traits retained into adulthood. Asian women are the most advanced in this. They have the most youthful features, easily trumping all other races. Look up Neoteny: It makes a case for why Asain women can be considered objectively beautiful.

(4) On the topic of Neoteny. the first anthropological researchers, all white men of course, had a very hard time accepting that Asians were most advanced in the evolution of human Neoteny. The wealth of self-aggrandizing rationalizations that attacked that finding was just embarassing. Better to accept it and move on.

Asian women are beautiful. All women are beautiful. It's all good. Stop telling people that Asian girls aren't. My wife and I encounter this sort of irrational resistance from far too many supermarket staff - and it's always non-Asian *women*, never men.

I think it was on this thread that the OP said that cult told her that "her people" hailed from Africa and were the chosen ones.

 

Last week scientists discovered 'the oldest' fossils of species homo sapiens in....wait for it.........Morocco! 300,000 years old.

 

This discovery would make Tami's cult the oldest arabs in the world.

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/06/world-s-oldest-homo-sapiens-fossi...

 

Also, others discovered the fossils of human sized lobsters.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/mar/11/fossilised-remains-of-hu...

 

So which is it? Arabs or lobsters??

Let's put her comments into perspective...

 

In less time that it takes for this planet and solar system to move 1 degree of arc around our galactic centre, ALL of Tami's cult and ideas will be gone... with not even a hint that they ever existed - less, even, than dust!

 

Her superior race that white people will kneel to will be gone. The 'chosen people' and their racial purity...  not even a blip in history.

 

(in case you're wondering.... one degree of arc takes about 700 thousand years. Tami's awesome racial "melanated: progenitor that gave birth to us all only showed up about 2.8 million years ago..maybe! To go a full circle around the galactic centre takes about 250 million years... which perhaps this sun has done 20 or more times! The universe, the sun, and not even this planet Earth, give two shits about who thinks they're the bestest-eva people here!

 

Humans are so self-centred!!!)
