Bastard Laowai Children

You seem to be unaware that the term "half-breed" is a demeaning term.

Educated and polite people do not use such a demeaning term loosely.


You mean like the expression 'laowai'? <snort>  This is a real question - and I using terms that most people would normally use, in private or public.  I could be politically correct - but then again, most of the folks I see on this forum are very incorrect when hiding behind masks - so why try to be so nice.

But I digress...

If Vietnam is any example of the warm welcome of how asians deal with 'mixed blood' children - I would be foolish to allow my future children to see their grandparents in China until they were old enough to hold their own in a street brawl.

China can have Cher. Okay by me.

Matt - could you modify the poll please, and add that choice.  Thanks!

Doesn't matter. They can still have her. Won't bother me a bit. :)

Someone got a decent photo of Cher?
