Thankyou for your response. However, you draw some baseless inferences from my posts by interpreting my remarks as products of an "upper class" or "higher society". I really don't subscribe to such elitist
thinking. You seem to press me for my nationality; again this is irrelevant, as there aren't entire nations
that are better behave than others. It comes down to individuals, and their personal attitudes.
An individual's wealth, background, occupation or education should not be taken as deciding factors in
whether someone behaves with personal grace and dignity, and consideration for others.
Indeed, in China, as with other countries, I often find the most charming hosts to be in the
countryside. They may not have the material resources that city dwellers have, but their
unfettered generosity of spirit is often humbling, and they have generally not succumbed to the
vacuous pressures found in the urban rat race.
Behaving as a gentleman, or lady, comes down to personal choice. " ...
When you started this thread as a suggestion, I may accept that you started it with good intention, that maybe you're someone from out of China and see how underdeveloped some of Chinese male behaved.
I asked your nationality, because since you have some standards to point out some of Chinese males weakness, we have to know which standard you are using. The 10 points you posted may happen to other east Asian males (I won't point it out here) but how can you come to conclusion that only Chinese males have these kind of embarassing attitude? I should call this racist.
China is a developing country. When a Beijinger look down on a migrant worker, maybe it's simply on economic side. He's dirty or maybe stinky, but that's because he's not affluent enough... not because he came from a particular countryside. Urban mass maybe disgusting in looking down on others... but they're not discriminate against one's background or homeplace. It's entirely different from you.
