More on “that story”

Mainstream media, as I suspected, are going to keep the story alive. The UK’s Independent picked it up today (along with a number of other media), and the only reason I’m posting about it is that I liked the quote from Jeremy Goldkorn of Danwei:

“A lot of the comments about Chinabounder have been fairly moderate – people saying how Chinese men are far worse than Chinabounder, for example, or pointing out that there was no question of rape or anything like that,” he said. And there have even been imitators. An overseas-born ethnic Chinese woman has set up a site, ABC Chick in Shanghai, describes herself as Chinabounderess and defends Chinabounder. She then goes on to describe her own flirtations in Shanghai.

In other words, a tempest in a teacup. How do things like this get started? (A rhetorical question.)

The Discussion: 5 Comments

Guess everyone’s kind of hesitant to make any comment on this one…

At this point, I guess there’s not much new to be said.

The guy has closed his blog. He then desperately spread a laughable hoax theory of “5 people effort art project”.

You call this tempest in teacup?

Look, the poor lad is seriously worrying about his job prospect, if not his personal safety.
