I have to step in in defence of Chinese males here.

I have formed the impression that Chinese m ...
a lot of Chinese men carrying around toddlers, some even on their backs.


I see that on very few occassions where I live. Mostly it seems to be because there are no wifes or grannies around.

And as for men cooking often - I think the background reasons for that are same (or similar) as to why most hairdressers in China are male (contrary to many western countries). Rather than pulling women up to same level as men, it is about putting men above women, not believing that women can do a good job at it (originally that is - nowadays it's just solidified into the society).

Of course Chinese women are independent. That's why they become leftovers.

Chinese women are amazing.  They are caring, sensible, traditional & diligent.

Yes, you are correct!
They are able to take care of me all the time.
Know not what to do if they are not around.

Social change takes a long time. The parents and grand-parents of today can still be stuck in the traditional attitudes. Women in a modern society deserve equality with men in all things, but a Chinese woman has to be strong to counter the encouragements to marry young. It is encouraging to see some women following a career and enjoying life, rather than dreaming of being looked after all their lives by a rich husband. Also encouraging is seeing more men enjoying cooking for the family, and taking an active role in child care.
