Mighty Njord,

You've been quite vocal in your comments and complaints, and I wanted to let you know I hear ya.

In response to us being selective, let me first say there are currently two mods here and both are foreigners (Canadian and American), so really, we feel the sting of comments pointed at foreigners the same as you. Now, it is true there is a post about westerners being perverts, which, while tendentious and grammatically poor, stems from a very common stereotype in China. We were hesitant about keeping it, but received no abuse reports from users, who on the contrary swarmed to answer and deride the poster.

At the same time, if you look through the extensive list of questions here, you will find the following:

'Why are Chinese men weak?"
"Why cant Chinese come up with an original idea?"
"Chinese men cheap, have weird vision of being romantic?"
"Are Chinese men faithful?"
"Can Chinese boyfriends be expected to be kinky?"

Some are silly, some are jokes, but imagine for a moment you were Chinese - would you say we favored you over foreigners? (On an unrelated side note, looking at those questions again, Chinese guys don't exactly have a good rep here). I found these in 5 minutes looking through questions, and you can probably find a lot more China-targeted jibing in other posts.

We hate to delete stuff because it pisses you off and it's work for us, but comments such as the one posted by toad above simply will not be tolerated. We try to be impartial, but it's also possible that we may miss something, so if you see something that's inappropriate, help us by reporting it.

Hope that clears stuff up a bit,

From Breakfast at Tiffany's all the way to Hangover 2, how stereotypical that in a forum where it is built for network to foreigners or in case "expats" to ask such racial question.

Perhaps, for those who question and unwittingly few seems figure out the so called "answer". Have you ever even consider that the media in your parts of the world obfuscated your mind on chinese men?

Where the majority of the media in the great western hemisphere portray Chinese men as evil little sneaky and weak individual who does not know its "wongs" or its rights. Or the the dragon lady who puff out smoke in their sleek traditional dress whose good for nothing except for that one night stand.

Perhaps the Chinese should take up on the social norms of the western world. Where barbaric and brutal minds of western culture that place it self above anyone else. Where else? where we can get great the minds of Hilter or Mussolini. Where their destructive and genocidal efforts have cause nothing but just world war. Should we dig deeper? How about red coats killing and murdering slaves in Africa or the so called "Tea Company" that brought nothing but opium to Indo-China to feed on the riches of land that they don't owned.

Or is it the white men is so scare that a single thought of any men of any races that can be better educated and can actually kick some ass threaten their masculinity or manhood? So we define these individuals as week and feminine so that the only war we can put them down.

Chewy - did you really resort to citing Hitler and Mussolini in your attack on the Western man? Really?
Also, your stereotypes about our media stereotyping YOU are glaring and moronic. Go live in Europe before making those types of generalizations. I also love how you group up the 'West' like it's all the same. Your ignorance makes me gag in disgust.

Njord - I haven't been here long but enough to have read about you accusing this website of being racist against foreigners. I don't see you coming to the rescue now that everyone here is being accused of being racist against Chinese. Hypocrite much?

All Chinese are Confucius and Shenkuo and Yuan Longping. Foreigners must look at only the greatest of China's achievements.

All foreigners are Hitler and Mussolini. Chinese must look at only the worst of our disasters.

Got it.

Chewy, do you live in China? Do you understand Chinese? Watch much TV here? Are you aware of how the Chinese media portrays white and black people?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
