    lol imagine using WeChat and talking politics. No Chinese person will talk politics foreign or domestic in your face even. If they are, they are just setting you up.

    Many expats won’t shut the frick up about politics, particularly American politics, even when living abroad .

    They tend to unrealistic idealists (liberals) and criticize everything and everyone.

    The only people I’ve ever known to have had to go “have tea” with authorities in China have been the most egregious and outspoken loud mouths who could have easily avoided the situation in the first place

    China is the most anti-free and economically oppressive nation in Asia. But as a 1 month visit just cooming and eating? Not really an issue.

    my only gripe with China is that they don't let people watch movies or tell stories about ghosts. I have so many horror movies on my harddrive the Chinese government would sell my organs without a second's hesitation.

      Talking with my friends and reading comments here is amazing how brainwashed people can be. China doesn't ban ghosts. Coco was literally one of the biggest releases in China. You can also find HK ghost or zombie movies on TV or Chinese streaming services.
      This "banning ghosts" thing comes from incredibly lazy or outright purposely misleading reporting. China has a quota on foreign films allowed into the Chinese cinemas. They reject a lot of movies in favor of big blockbusters for economic reasons. So China rejects a movie and then the press will say it was rejected cause of ghosts or Winnie the Pooh. There is a shit ton of censorship, a lot of is unecessary but the western medias reporting on China should always be taken with a grain of salt.

    People have been moaning about not being able to do pride marches/other libshit in China for decades but this is a vocal minority which offers no meaningful representation of expat communities in China. BUT the lockdowns last year did genuinely and severely damage the place in the eyes of most expats. There are far less first-world foreigners in China or looking to go to China than pre-covid (and this was not the case DURING covid, that is, pre-2022).

    Unless there is some other insane shit, political struggles, unrest, etc, I imagine the damage done last year will blow over in a few years and it will be back as an expat destination. But only in the more formal sense that HK/SK/Japan are. The last vestiges of 'wild west' China died around 2017 IMO.

      The anglo is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a homosexual, a liberal, a degenerate it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a hypocrite and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.”

      >Wild west
      China has never been "wild west". English teachers stayed english teachers, import and export was always facilitated by local intermediaries (even worse as alibaba took over), and skilled workers never got a PR visa. Foreigners making their own companies always faced stringent laws due to chinese protectionism, and if at any point you were not needed, you were given the boot. People like this moron didn't understand the social contract that clearly stipulated that they were expendable. Never go to a place planning to stay there permanently when they explicitly tell you that you're not welcome forever.

        The wild west I refer to is the ubiquity of (and low risk when engaging in) vice - partying/prostitutes and to a lesser extent drugs. And dumb things like no traffic laws/no enforcement of traffic laws. All of which still exist in China but have been seriously clamped down on and the illegal activities carry much harsher penalties than before, or are at least enforced where they weren't previously. I am not bemoaning this since I never really engaged in that stuff but you also can't go out one night in Shanghai without some 30/40 something eurogay coming up to tell you how in 2014 he would do coke EVERY NIGHT and now he can't get shit. Tough luck.

    there is rarely smoke without fire in china. someone being awoken by the police in the middle of the night is already on their radar and has triggered a levelling up of their situation. no one gets hassled for shit talking a few times. being a constant pain in ass of someone gets your door banged on.
    people bring on their own escalation of hassle. chinese police will try as hard as they can to not get involved and do nothing because they don't want the bureaucracy of escalating. this is the reality of china: you can get away with a lot until you go too far and then you get fricked up.
    >speaking out about gender rights and other social issues
    sounds innocuous n purpose but no one knows what it involves.
