  Well it's a patriarchal society, so women don't receive equal respect to men. To me that gives an ignorant man license to hurt a woman, in his feeble mind anyway. Personally I think China and the Chinese are a disgrace to the word decency with regards to the subject of rape. I can think of no other way to put it. That there are not even charges for a man to file if he were to suffer such an act, as I have just read in Giadrosich's article above, is abominable. Does that also count for male children? And the fact that women are afraid to come forward and ask for help, let alone justice, for fear that they will be looked down upon by their community and even their family as something dirty, makes me want to vomit upon this country. To any Chinese readers of this I am sorry for such harsh words, but I mean every one of them. That a child can suffer such torment only to receive a lifetime of judgement and be looked down upon and forced to suffer in dreadful silence, rather than be held up with love and respect as someone who is a survivor of such a vile and pernicious act as rape, is disgusting to me. It is an absolute sin and, at the end of the day, just another example of how the collective nation of man is still truly and utterly, in its infancy.

There is probably no way to know for certain, due to many circumstances, however, here is an interesting report from the University of Southern California:

It's maybe (but not likely) less common than other countries, but newspapers rarely report any of this type of crime unless it involves children, so it may seem like it is rare but truly isn't.  The government and news organizations like to pretend if they don't report the problem, people will believe there is nothing to be worried about.  Also, it is likely many rapes go unreported to the authorities, likely because of trust of the police, and possible situation of having family find out what happened.  Most Chinese families still won't have the sex talk with their son or daughter, and sex is not a topic allowed in schools, so many girls probably don't quite understand the significance of being raped... until it haunts them dearly for the rest of their life as they stay silent.

YES. 

My friend was at the hospital once when a rape victim came in in Beijing. She later spoke to the doctor when she saw him outside on his break. He told her rape victims come in so often they don't even bother calling the police.

So Alabama says you rape someone under 13, before your time is served to go home, you have to pay for chemical castration. It could be worse, in the philippines if the girl has not had a period yet, you get the death penalty. I wonder if the law is gender neutral and what happens if you transition to avoid the penalty, the things you have to consider in the modern age.

I wonder what happened to the guilty party, good tolerant Europeans failed to put that in the article

I was riding home on my scooter one night. This happened a couple of years ago. The raod was next to the river. All of a sudden a girl jumped our into the road and so I slowed down and stopped. She was half nacked. She only had a shirt on and was bleeding between her legs. I took my shirt off and tried to cover her up. I put her on the back of my scooter and took her to the only police station that I knew at the time. My wife, her mother and the ladies boyfriend eventually arrived at he police station. The next day the boyfriend phoned to find out if she had been raped. My wife told me that he wanted to know if she had been raped because if she had been raped then he would leave the girl as Chinese guys only marry virgins. The police phoned a couple of weeks later and told us that they had arrested the rapist next to the river. They would attack girls that were walking next to the river, take all their belongings and rape them. This was about eight years ago. Things have changed since then. There are a lot more cameras in the streets and so on.

The foolish Chinese men who think they are marrying a virgin, the hospital down the street from me does hymenoplasty to make virgins everyday, at least 20 to 30 customers a day, 300 to 400 rmb, usually college girl graduates (where hometown and college town far apart) that don't want the new husband to know they all already tried the cock carousel before.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
