That’s it? No theories? No nothin.’ Here’s my theory, this guy is pissed and I think it is the real deal. I don’t see performance artists groups putting out something like this. Not sure if he is back for good, but he is certainly back badder than ever.

personally i thought both his blog and the reaction to it were pathetic.

having said that, he makes an excellent point. too many chinese are just interested in bashing the west and are in flat out denial about problems in their own country

I disliked his blog while admiring the writer’s style and often his insights into China. I absolutely hated the stuff about deflowering his students and the details of their underwear, etc. His views on the state of affairs in China aren’t too far from my own.

CLB, that stuff about a “performance group” was pure BS. He may not have been who he claimed to be (a teacher in Shanghai), but it was definitely a single individual and no group.

Chinabounder, ah yes, a kindred spirit of sorts.
His claims do follow along the same path as other expats (I did enjoy the company of quite a few golden birds) but they offer the outside world a peak at the social turmoil underway as China goes through a sexual awakening while trying to shake off those vibrant yet suffocating “chinese characteristics”.

I honestly wonder what sort of girls he’s meeting. When I was in Shanghai, the girls I met were usually more sophisticated and cosmopolitan than that–but of course, they had gone to college overseas.

But then again, reading his blog archives is like reading a bad erotica novel written by an egotistical wannabe.

Some of my female colleagues were actually talking about this blog a few months ago; it seemed they thought he was an idiot fucktard who represented the worst of western expats in China. (And both of them were dating “bai ren”.)

Also, his comments about Chinese men having low stamina and being “potatoes” is… pretty ignorant. I guess that might be the case for guys over 30, but every time I talk to my friends, they seem to be as experienced as any of the Patrick Batemans I hung out with in New York.

I’ve got a pretty low opinion of Chinabounder, and this doesn’t do a whole lot to change it. He’s right about the selective outrage, of course, but so what? Does anybody really believe that this self-important sleazebag is about to metamorphose into Truth And Justice Man? The guy’s feeling hard-done by because nobody noticed his pathetic literary asperations, and so he’s making a bid for attention by turning his attention, for once, away from the sordid. Ten bucks says he’s looking for a book deal.
