Let me tell you a thing or two about the mistress, second wife, lover, and or red light barber. It isn’t going to change anytime soon.
I just read this article from Time about mistresses in China. Something I like to think I know a little about, no not mistresses, China. Hell if I had a mistress problem I like to think I wouldn’t have to cry myself to bed every night.
The article points out some reason, but here is my take on it.
So yeah, I see some reasons for this happening and it does happen. First it’s the culture. Think emperors and what not. They had tons of women to uh “help them breath” so it’s something that wasn’t frowned upon from the get go.
Two, there is the one child policy, and no retirement for old wrinkly Chinese people like there is there is in the States, thus the kids are the retirement policy. So girls need to provide or try to or something. Thus they seek the cabbage, the loot, the red backs, the money.
Three, there is no shame in where you got your money from. Are you a hard working Chinese man, yeah, sorry bro, no one cares. Are you a Audi A8 driving, chain smoking, man bag carrying Chinese man, you are awesome and deserve respect.
Four, powerful women. Shy little school girls look up to people, and well, women with money and power are looked up to. If the women just happens to hang out with a dude and wake up to paper bags full of money, good for her, remember there is no shame in where or how you acquired your wealth in China.
Five, there is a ton of money here. Now some of you mainly from a farm, on the side of a gravel road, that have dialup, might still China is full of yellow skinned, clothing making slaves. Uh wrong. While some of that might still be true, it’s not at all like that. It’s now full of Ferrari driving rich ass people. Most of which are men. Now, they all have a ton of dough to blow, along with other things, so they have the money to spend on a second wife. And let’s be honest, it’s cheap. I bet I could do it tomorrow if I wanted. Head down to the local college and talk to a few girls. Tell them I’ll give them a few thousand RMB to live at an apartment that I will rent, and say Monday, Wednesday, Friday I’ll show up and you can help me “breath.” Thus giving me a break from my nagging tiger wife who constantly has to chew my ass out for something.
Six, face. Face people, face. It’s how other people see you. Like the reason you buy that Porsche 911 Turbo. You are in a competition with the worlds population and ever other rich Chinese person. So, you buy a hot piece of ass and show her off to people. Thus gaining respect. Then you tell them that she’ll also make you do 0-60 in less than a 3.6 seconds.
It’s not going to change, it happens all over the world. Who the hell cares. If you teach your children correctly there is chance that they won’t become someone’s second breast (二奶 ernai – the literal translation for the slang term for mistress). Also come on, you shouldn’t be pissed that they have mistresses, what you should be pissed about is that it was paid for from everyone in America buying cheap ass Chinese goods, making the factory owners rich ass hell, so that he could buy that car you always wanted and buy the hottest piece of Asian tail you will every lay your eyes on. Just think that a little bit of that rubber ducky your kids are playing with went to help pay for a Gucci purse so that that hot girl would quite bitching and start working…
Kind of makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside doesn’t it?
Oh and the real people that should be pissed, yeah, the poor Chinese guys that already don’t have women because of the gender imbalance. They just got another girl taken out of the potential dating pool. How in the world are you going to follow up a R8 driving rich ass boss, yeah, that’s right, your not. Not even your hopped up ecofriendly moped can compete with that ex-boyfirend.
