Q: What's your favorite China-exclusive double standard?

Sadly, most of them seem worldwide problems, like how women generally work harder but get paid less.

It doesn't take very much money to change someone's mind. But I've also noticed that there are really no double standards that are exclusive to China.

You dont understand  the feelings of chinese people! If china sells weapons to other countries is out of kindness and not for imperialist agendas. Such as the chinese sea or the diaoyu island, part of china since the Big Bang, created by the eunuch Xie Da Bao from the ancient celest court with the help of the Panda dragon of Jade!

When someone random unkown person who has studied English for more than 10 years critisises and mocks your Chinese with unintelligible english gibberish....while you are having a conversation with another chinese person with no problems.

 

And you thank that stranger for pointing that out (in chinese and they understand).

I love the way Chinese people feel they can ask the most personal and offensive questions to non-Chinese people 'because the are curious'.

These are questions that they would never ask another Chinese person who is a stranger to them, and then they 'get offended' if they are asked the same questions in return or refuse to answer.

 

When asked such questions on the street, i respond by saying 'i will answer when you give me your answer to the same question'.

That shuts most of them up fast.

I.  China:  Do not interfere with our culture with your values. 

 

II. China:  Set up Confucius Institutes all over western countries like USA, Canada, Australia.....etc., usually at universities.  Objective:  Here are our dalu values, you adopt them.

 

Example: Chinese embassy in Australia found funding their foreign students in spreading communism and dalu values to Australians. So you always see a whole bunch of mainland zombies protesters yelling whenever something china doesn't like takes place, in Australia, such as the Dalai Lama visiting.

Weaponry /  Tactics

 

1. Hypocrisy, double standards, hidden agenda. Red semantics.

 

2. Money, bribes.

 

3. Psychological manipulation, screwing laowais' consciousness, altering their culture, replacing their values with dalu values camouflaged as authentic Chinese values. ie fakes.
