Even Plato says that he loves his teacher but he loves the truth more than his teacher. So your co ...
Just beat it, Mister.
You know very well that your arguments aren't supported by your circuitous reasoning and illogic.
I admit that Elder Brother Wu is a cuckold and a victim for his tragic marriage to an evil woman, but at least he is able to to have his own living and his own estate, much better than many college graduates and even overseas returned students who cannot afford a house in the city where they work. So it is unjustified to call him weak.
This statement of yours is the epitome of folly.
It was his very weakness as a man that led to his wearing a green hat and eventual demise at the hands of the adulterer. That's exactly why he is picked for this comparison.
If not due to his weakness, the man wouldn't have been drawn into this comparison.
You don't compare weakness with weakness, not strength with strength. You only do that with people with contrasting attributes.
Mind you that this is not a contest to see who is weaker or stronger.
It is a statement from a s.e.x.i.s.t that he refuses to hire a strong or more capable woman -- so he needs a well known but weak man to make that contrast -- Wu Da Lang is the example he invokes in this statement.
It is precisely because he is weak that he is used to compare with the strong Mu, and the author is saying he would rather have a weak man than a strong woman to work for him -- a typical s.e.x.i.s.t. statement.
Your use of this man to compare with college grads and overseas returnees who can't afford to buy a house in a metropolis is scatter-brained and totally absurd.
There are many men who can buy a house but are considered weak because of their character, and yet there are many others who can't buy a house but are considered strong because of their character. How do you even know he bought and not just rented the house? How can anyone evaluate how much it cost a man to either buy or rent a house in Qing He County (not a big metropolis) in Norther Song Dynasty when the population was just a small fraction of what it is in today's China?
So whether he can rent or buy a house has nothing to do with Wu Da Lang's perennial image as a weak man.
As to Mu, again you are comparing apples with oranges -- America versus China of the Northern Song Dynasty. You cannot say an orange has much thicker skin and therefore that makes it better than an apple. You must compare specific things and specific issues and not go around obfuscating the issues. Otherwise it is another sign of a scatter-brained wulai.
Here the author is using widely known characters to understand why the author is invoking Wu Da Lang and Mu Gui-ying as contrasts. If both are strong, it won't make any sense, and if both characters are weak, it won't make any sense either.
Try to be an honest man from today henceforth for a change, or else you'll end up someday, somewhere, somehow with someone's fist and not just his hand up yours.
