(Global Times) After local parks released a blacklist of uncivilized behavior in late July,  the Beijing government now solicits public opinions for a draft law on these behaviors, including loud square dancing and wearing a "Beijing bikini."

The solicitation is being conducted by the municipal civilization promotion office and will run from Monday to August 25. It will serve as a reference for the ongoing Beijing civilized behavior promotion legislation, The Beijing News reported on Tuesday.

The move comes amid a nationwide campaign against uncivilized behavior. Similar measures have reportedly been taken in Ji'nan, East China's Shandong Province, Chengdu, Southwest China's Sichuan Province and North China's Tianjin Municipality.  

Beijing residents can access a questionnaire website and vote for the behavior they think should be included in the law. They can also comment on the upcoming law.

The Global Times reporter found that the online questionnaire lists 19 uncivilized behavior, including spitting, walking dogs off a leash, men appearing topless in the public and dancing in squares to loud music.

"The legislation is necessary if Beijing wants to be a harmonious and livable world-class city," Wang Zhenyu, a professor at the China University of Political Science and Law, told the Global Times on Tuesday.

With the improvement of people's living standards, more people are becoming less tolerant of uncivilized behavior, Wang noted.

"Soliciting public opinions for a draft law is an effective approach to capture public sentiment and motivate the public," Wang said.

The questionnaire also lists 12 civilized behavioral options, including volunteer service and donating blood. Beijing plans to provide incentives, such as granting honorary titles and cash awards to residents doing good deeds.

What an absolute farce. If behaviour such as the one shown in this photo is considered "uncivilized" in China then you might as well ignore the country's 5,000 years of history. Ordinary people don't dress up in white shirts, suits and ties as part of their everyday lives. Not every "Zhonguo dama" wears Gucci dresses, make-up and high heels when they go to their local wet market.  Get a grip - big brother cannot determine or control what is going on in every little side alley of China where citizens deserve the right and freedom to dress, speak and behave as they wish.

"Ordinary people don't dress up in white shirts, suits and ties as part of their everyday lives. "

Deliberate attempt to distract again!  The authority is NOT asking them to wear "white shirts, suits and ties as part of their everyday lives", that is your imagination run wild,  the law merely asks them to cover up, even with casual shirts, not bare their tops!  Refer to other thread, "Topless men in public is an eyesore" for discussion!

"The Global Times reporter found that the online questionnaire lists 19 uncivilized behavior, including spitting, walking dogs off a leash, men appearing topless in the public and dancing in squares to loud music. "

Uncivlized behavior includes not cleaning up their dog poo, putting legs up on public benches and subway seats, screaming at the top of their voice talking on cellphone in public, screaming while talking with friends just across the table in restaurants, allowing their kids to scream and run wild in restuarants, and pushing and dragging chairs like their toys, creating horrible noise nuisance, etc!
