What do you think of Chinese girls, and how they appear to foreigners?

Very different from other East Asian girls. This question is loaded so of course my answer will be slightly generalizing, but I think for the majority of Chinese girls I met I seem to get this impression:

While Taiwanese/Korean/Japanese girls tend to be traditionally feminine, passive, more dependent on men, Chinese girls are more independent, more dominant, more aggressive, and more money focused. They value their career and success more than anything else. They don’t focus as much on physical appearance as much as owning expensive brand name items (this might be due to the Chinese “face” culture which I hate).

Also, in a surprising twist of gender inequality, they seem to have more power than the men do. While in other patriarchal countries the men have more power than the women and the women have to do more for the men, in China its reversed: the men have to do more for the women. That means despite Chinese women almost making as much as men do, the men still have to pay for everything and do everything for the women. How did this come to be? I think communism + the skewed gender ratio are to blame.

This is just my opinion of Chinese girls from mainland. Chinese-American or Chinese-Canadian girls are very different and are closer to Western women.

How is China’s communist party rule different than other unsuccessful communist regime?

China isn’t the same country as it was when Mao Zedong was chairman.

Mao-era China was essentially what North Korea is now.

Today’s China is a meritocratic capitalist country with fierce government control is the way I would describe it.

So, how does China compare with its more ‘democratic’ neighbors Japan/Korea/ROC(Taiwan)?

-In China, the ruling party is decided by meritocracy not by the people. The person who is most qualified to lead gets to lead. This avoids the situations like in the USA where an unqualified leader could be elected. But also means if you don’t like the person you can’t remove them. i.e Xi Jinping has decided to remove term limits. If he doesn’t do a good job, the people can’t do anything about it, but they trust him to do a good job. More likely though – if he doesn’t do a good job, the CCP will probably replace him.

-In China you cannot protest against the government publicly or lead a protest group either online or offline. A lot of censorship takes place on social media, though obviously they can’t censor people just discussing about it in person.

-In China the government censors sex/violence in movies/video games. This is supposedly to make the people more ‘pure’ but I don’t think it really makes any difference, people will just get their fix from the black market anyways

-In China, foreign websites are (mostly) blocked. Quora is not, but Facebook and Youtube are. This is supposedly for the benefit of their domestic companies but also has the downside of isolating its people in a bubble. A lot of people use VPN anyways but it does slow down the connection.

Other than these points I don’t find any other meaningful difference between the way China is run than its surrounding (non-communist) countries

Is Donald Trump really that bad of a president, or does it just seem that way because he’s such a jerk?

its both… as a President, he has only passed a few pieces of legislation, the tax cuts and the infrastructure bill come to mind, and that’s about it. He’s appointed some Supreme Court Justices, but that’s not that much hard work. The rest of his accomplishments have been mainly executive orders and threatening or withdrawing from agreements with our allies.

He notably does not prepare for any meetings or summits. He doesn’t read any briefing if its over a page and doesn’t contain pictures or mentions his name. A record number of his cabinet has resigned. He spends most of his time at rallies as if he’s still campaigning for president and/or golfing at his resort. He treats discussions with North Korea as a real estate deal. He’s not intellectually curious at all, believes in conspiracy theories, never blames himself for anything, and flip flops on every issue even mid sentence. He starts twitter fights with private citizens. He bans news organizations he doesn’t like from his press conferences. He thinks he’s above the law.

So as President, he’s not very effective. A lot of members of his own party don’t agree with him. A lot of what he says (see the Fox News interview) doesn’t make a lick of sense. As a jerk, well.. I’m sure you already know why he’s a jerk.
