Could you please elaborate your above comment?
Now I’m like a student just caught of having written a lame thesis. You are asking me a tough questions, Prof. TB! :)
Instead of any solid observations or personal experiences, the whole thing, like I said, is just what I believe and so is more based on speculations or even imaginations, although both my own experiences (I’m Chinese) and the observations can be involved. Therefore, the theory could be wrong! And, I don’t care even if it is wrong.
With that said, let me try to answer your questions:
What is the meaning of Asian males are (more or less) sexually/spiritually supressed...are you speaking from the Freudian perspective? The term "supressed", are you using in the context of a psychoanalytic model?
When I say “suppressed”, I refer to the meaning of the word in plain English on a regular basis. It should be understood with common sense. I don’t know Freud and his psychoanalysis, and I’ve never taken any classes related with psychology.
Could you please further explain how and why you believe that Asian males are "sexually/spiritually supressed"?
I believe it is because of the influence of the eastern cultures and philosophies. For example, “程朱理学” teaches people “存天理, 灭人欲”, or “suppress human’s desires in order to abide heaven’s laws”.
Please also explain what is the meaning of "violent tendency"...are you speaking of physical violent behaviors?
“Violent tendency” only means tendency. It doesn’t mean behaviors. IMHO, behaviors release tensions, which would actually reduce the tendency.
And why do you believe that being sexually/spiritually supressed would lead to a "violent tendency" against anything weak?
Tension needs to be released. Why against weak objects? Let’s take bowling as an example. When you bowl, would you feel as much stress-releasing as it is if all the pins are made of lead and strongly welded on the lane?
Thank you very much for your time and attention to my questions. Thank you again in advance.
:) I don’t believe I’m actually writing these. But well, you are welcome.
