I don’t mean to say we’re to walk on eggshells all the time and sure, let us not “exoticise” China. But. I generally find it hard to tolerate when foreigners here passionately complain about this country and its people. Especially if it’s bordering on, not so pretty, racist and irrational ideas. And there are those, who use it as a pick-up line. “You like Chinese guys? You’re the first one I’ve met!”, “They are so girlish” etc.
Guys, really? Can all the Biebers, Jonas Brothers and numerous Backstreet Boy-clones escape the brain at these momentary memory lapses?
