It is not clear, though, whether the Chinese surveys use the same definitions of obesity as in the U.S. or elsewhere.
Well, I've been to China (and the US) and no matter how much faster the problem is spreading than the US, they're still not as fat as Americans nor are there are many fat people proportionately. NO, I didn't get each person weighed in, but visually you can see how disproportionate someone is and they are NOTHING like Americans from what I seen. In fact, if we could go beyond just saying if one is obese and make a more accurate measurement of how much one is OVER obese, then I know that Americans are so much more OVER obese than are the Chinese. I've seen entire fat god damned families in the US that take 60 seconds to walk across the street as they jiggle across like the Michelin man or Stay puft marshmallow man (see below).
I remember reading the article "Chinese obese (or was it overweight?) now tops 69 million". Which is how many obese people there are in the USA. Of course they failed to say there are 1.3billion people in China and only 300 million in the USA. It's like the US writers are trying to draw some comparison and to feel better about themselves by writing incomplete stories.
All American aren't fat, but neither are all Muslims terrorists. It just so happens that in both cases the probability of either being true occurs more times than not, which makes the statement "Americans are fat" and "Muslims are terrorists" mostly true. What, I can have fun once in a while!!
Interestingly, though, I think in the US there are more fat white guys than there are girls. But in China it's apparent this isn't an issue for the white guys. How come?
back to the main issue....white women in china
Where are the white women in China? I get the feeling that if they didn't COME with a white guy, then they're leaving empty handed because from what I seen it is more rare to see a white woman with an Chinese guy than it is to see a black guy with a Chinese gal. Just go to any lao wai bar and if a white girl is there then she's probably alone with other white girls, or the guy she came with from her respective foreign country. Most likely she' not with a Chinese guy, which, I think, are very picky about their girls especially for a serious relationship that would end up in China (due to the harsh marriage arrangements that still exist, eg, housing arrangements after marriage, etc). Although it'd probably be cheaper for a Chinese guy to marry a white girl.
So again, back to the main point of the thread...Can white women compete again Chinese women while IN China? I find from personal observations a resounding no. But what about white vs chinese with the domain being the US/EU?
sorry, forgot the enjoyable pics
