Men Are Bad/Stupid/Selfish Even in Hong Kong « China/Taiwan »

So says this article, at least.

The only possible reason the author could think of that Hong Kong men prefer mainland Chinese women is that the mainlanders are more "subservient".


Anyone who knows Chinese women knows that there is nothing subservient about them.

Here are the judgments about why Honk Kong women are remaining single rather than marry into the surplus of mainland men:

But she added that the career-mindedness of Hong Kong women may put off potential mainland suitors.

"In general," she said, "the work culture in Hong Kong has resulted in a greater proportion of women who are career-focused and independent, which may counter some of the expectations of mainland men."

Huh? It's the mainland Chinese men's fault? They just don't want a woman who makes money, even if she begs him?

Hong Kong women, on the other hand, are far better educated and more independent than their mainland counterparts and do not want to be bossed around by patriarchal husbands. Moreover, many of the city's women are financially independent and no longer think of marriage in terms of economic security. A rising divorce rate can probably also be attributed to the growing assertiveness of Hong Kong women.

Oh. Hong Kong women are just too assertive for mainland men. Mainland men are just too patriarchal and bossy.

As Bik-kei - a 32-year-old administrative assistant enjoying the single life - put it: "For single women who are financially secure with a good education, I feel the environment in Hong Kong allows us to live happily and stay single instead of being submissive to someone. Marrying a mainland guy, there is a possibility of family pressure, while parents might feel he has a lower social status.

And the truth accidentally slips out.

Social status.

Simply put, women keenly assess their own social status, and are usually only willing to marry into a higher social class. Outside of small towns where the selections are few, women only rarly marry someone of equal status, and never marry someone beneath them. It's not "assertiveness" or "bossiness" or anything. Deep down, for most women, men are means to an end: more material comfort than they can achieve on their own. And if the man cannot provide it, or she finds she can provide it on her own, the relationship is likely over.
