I am writing a chapter on Chinese manhood. |
First let me start by saying that every man should be proud of his own race, and so should every woman, and this applies to you whether your skin color is pale, dark or in-between.
In my case, I am proud to be a Chinese man -- an 'in-between.'
If you hear an Asian woman say that she prefers a man from another race, it shouldn't have hurt your feelings.
Just look into the personal ads of any major newspaper in any major city, and you'll see that some Asian women do have that kind of preference.
I don't get mad when people tell me that certain Chinese women prefer whites or blacks.
Nowadays women are more pragmatic than men in many ways.
The kind of people they prefer usually are look-alikes of actors in big-budget films and who makes the most films in the world? Hollywood. And who are the stars in those films? Usually a white man, and this is going to change now that Hollywood is trying to enter the Chinese market in the form of joint ventures, and this will definitely help to promote a better image of Chinese masculinity on big screens around the world.
Not too long ago, if an Asian is the leading male in Western films, his sexuality is usually de-emphasized. He is either a kung-fu artist doing impossible stunts albeit with stereotypically minimal interest in women (like the roles Jackie Chan played) or a real ugly dude like Fu Manchu. You don't see a handsome Chinese like -- who else -- wchao37 on the screen.
The women-folks are a good 'economic weather vane' in any nation. As China becomes stronger and richer, her men will also become the stars of the world. During the Qing Dynasty, Emperor Qing Long once inquired as to why all the European women sent to his court in the envoys were so ugly compared to the Chinese -- to His Highness, they almost always had coarse skin, narrow pointed noses, searching eyes and big feet.
So this shows that the ideal of beauty changes with the vicissitudes of a nation and the advance of science, such as the invention of skin-friendly chemicals and the sewing machine.
When a nation grows richer, her women-folks would gain more ways to enhance their appearance. Remember that the sewing machine is a relatively recent invention and make-ups have a lot to do with the advanced sectors of the chemical industry in a country.
In my personal opinion, even though there are pretty faces in all races, I think the Chinese have a disproportionately higher percentage of beautiful women in their population. Look at any of the so-called pretty women in Hollywood, none of them is really a match to the description of Yang Kuei-fei, Zhao Fei-yan or Diao Zhan.
For one thing obesity after 25 is not as common a problem in China as it is in the U.S. although this might be changing due to the encroachment of McDonalds and other fast food chains into our cuisine culture.
As China becomes more prosperous, I have no doubt that a Chinese woman will become the symbol of beauty in the world, because not only does she have finer features and skin texture on a thinner body, she also has the cultured manners of an ancient civilization behind her.
Sexuality is not just a hasty bang-bang-hit-a-fan rampage you know.
Making love to a woman is a fine art, in which a knowledgeable Chinese man excels. What makes the Chinese Woman beautiful is in fact the cool, caressing hand from a real Chinese Man.
So that's why I have no anxiety about the phenomenon that some Asian ladies are seeking white or black partners. Mostly it is due to economic situations such as getting a green card or something. Some may do so because they like hair, and in those situations they can surely be reminded that gorillas are always viable alternatives.
Yes, it is important that we use the momentum of the Chinese film market to promote our masculine image in the world using our own criteria of what constitutes a desirable male in our species.
In time, in this century, the value of the suave and cultured Chinese man will be recognized. It will eventually become the model of male desirability in the world.
I guarantee it.
