This is anecdotal, but I've also observed something similar in Singapore. While they don't have the OCP, the birthrate is low and parents often opt just to have a single child because they are double income and often the child is raised by the maid. A different phenomenon, but I think partly because the child sometimes starts bossing the maid around, they can become quite spoilt and demanding too.

^ Though not in China, Uzbek women might be the most beautiful in the world...Uyghurs and Tajiks are a bit similar.

If a guy is looking for western 'looking women', chances are, he'll go to Latin America, U.S, or Europe.

Yes, China has ethnic groups that have Caucasian features such as Tatars, Uighurs, Tus, Turkic etc.

Central Asia (which includes parts of China) has been shielded from the western world for most of the 20th century and its many "advantages" are only recently being discovered.

Well Western China and Central Asia isn't usually a place foreigners go to look for women in the first place. It's still off the beaten path, traditional, mostly Muslim (albeit less strict than the Middle East) or else not really religious from the Communist past. I think though if someone liked mixed Asian-European looking girls they would've felt like they hit on a goldmine there . I've met some Uzbek girls in person and they certainly are very attractive IMO. I mean you aren't gonna find the same number of girls who look like this elsewhere, some guys are especially attracted to the 'Eurasian' look moreso than pure white or asian.

Dude, I'm a teacher in China, and every day I see parents who are doting, loving, caring, and supportive towards their children. One of my kids has parents who are businesspeople, and their daughter is a dyed-in-the-wool artist who likes un-girly things and wants to spend most of her time drawing pictures of snakes. In a parent-teacher conference, they said something like, "she is not made for business... she likes to draw and paint. That makes her happy, so we want her to do it."

Plenty of Chinese-American kids in the US don't speak proper Chinese because they were born, raised, and live in the US and their parents want them to make the most of life in the US; right or wrong, they'd rather their kids focus on what they think is best for their future. Since most of their parents were leaving China to foster a better life for their children, they don't view learning proper Chinese as being a necessity, and would rather them focus on other things.

I have my qualms with Chinese parenting standards all the same that I have qualms with American parenting standards, don't get me wrong... but seriously, to say that the Chinese "don't make good parents?" Well what about all the Japanese otaku who spend their formative years fantasizing about anime and never manage to get a job or move out of their parents'? What about all the listless American kids who have two degrees and claim that they "can't find work" while they don't give a damn? What about the Korean botox boys who equate their hair with how well they're doing in life? These are all the same torrid stereotypes that you get about the study-obsessed Chinese parents who don't ever tell their kids they love them.

Please don't abide by these stereotypes. They're gross and misguided.

I wouldn't call those women "western" looking; the closest you'll really see is "hapa" or half-Asian looking, because when you get to Northern China, you have thousands of years of admixture.

When I ride the subway in Guangzhou, every day I see women who have skin that's as light as mine (I'm ethnically Swedish), all the way to dark olive. I see nearly-black eyes, down to light hazel; I have met a few women who have green eyes, and they're anything but beauty queens... I've met women who are 4'10 and weigh no more than 75 lbs, and ones who are 6'0 and statuesque... they really run the gamut all up and down and every which way.

You try to typify a country that has 1.4 billion people, there's no way you can come out on top.

Uzbek and Kazakh women can be amazingly beautiful... you're basically combining Chinese, Russian, and Iranian (that's an oversimplification but those are the main regional analogues). I'm definitely more attracted to the Eurasian/mixed look, myself, so hell yeah.

But yeah... there's a woman who sells roasted nuts off the back of an autorickshaw/trike a couple blocks from where I live, who is amazingly beautiful... dark green eyes, light skin, a row of freckles across her face, Asian eyes but high cheekbones, very graceful and feminine actions, blushes whenever she sees me...

Unfortunately for me, she also wears a headscarf and is a devout Muslim. She tries to talk to me in Chinese but I can only make out the bits about the weather and where I'm from, and there's no way in hell I'm giving up my booze. Oh wells.

Yep, one of my weaknesses too . But really, I appreciate women from just about everywhere...

Yes she's probably from out west somewhere, Uyghur, Tajik, Kazakh.etc. Yes I think that's one problem with Muslim women, haha, they're out of bounds unless you want to convert, plus there's their family...

Of course this is highly subjective.

2. Korea
3. China and Singapore
