• I'm single with no children and most of the people who tell me never to get married or have children are women who are married with children haha. I have been told that once you start your own family, as the female partner, your life is no longer your own. Since I have no first hand experience and no desire to get married anyway, I just listen quietly. That being said, I am an educator and work closely with low income urban youth, and can tell others that you can love the children of others very much. I can't make comparisons to my own children, as I don't have any, but I feel my life so far has been enriched by the young ppl I work with. I realize that not everyone will/can/should feel the same way as me. Perhaps, Barbie was also expressing a sentiment that she holds dear but could not meet because of family pressure. I think in this case, it's better to think positively on behalf of adopting children who aren't so fortunate than to guess what a stranger is really thinking.
  • Well, well, well isn't this absolutely annoying and petty. Although I understand where the mainland netizens are coming from, they clearly have no desire to see artists express their political opinions. Aren't we all human? This type of censorship is unreasonable, but unsurprisingly very mainland haha. Isn't this similar to what HK was protesting in the first place (be honest, no BS, plz)? We can all still have different opinions and enjoy the capitalist money making machine of the entertainment industry. Naturally, Charmaine should have exercised better judgment here considering her profession and the political climate. But the bullying behavior of the netizens is embarrassing.
  • Joe doesn't like kids... I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND HER! MAKE THAT MONEY JOE! For those who are interested, see article in The Atlantic about late childbirth: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/07/how-long-can-you-wait-to-have-a-baby/309374/ tl;dr version: women can have children later in life, especially rich healthy women. lol.
  • The response of public is so weird...
  • I love this couple so much! That baby is so fat and adorable!!
  • Well, I don't know anything about Louis Koo, but I hope this news is true! The growing elderly population across Asia is very vulnerable and often invisible to those of us with no elders or are too busy trying to "make it". I recently read that 1/3 of Hong Kong's elderly population are living in poverty for various reasons, and receive very little governmental, social, and familial support. So, I appreciate such endeavors by artistes to draw more attention to this issue.
  • @lyu310 I am in agreement with this. It's fine to educate oneself about nature vs nurture in regards to sexuality, but this way of explaining sexuality can be dangerous. If it is believed that one's environment influences or causes sexual identity, then the logical conclusion would be to try to influence the environment to "fix" homosexuality...which some ppl believe you can. I didn't wake up one day and decided that I want to be queer. It just never occurred to me that marriage was only between men and women. Also, I am not refuting that there are scientific studies that claim that homosexuality can be passed through one's lineage. I don't know about that really. What I do know is that there are families that will not allow their children to marry the one they love because the one they loves has a questionable family medical history i.e. homosexuality and mental illness. That is dangerous and unfortunate.
  • I've been following this on Dramafever. I've been dreading the the falling out of the couple. I don't think Wallace is bad, I just think the ladies are just doing an excellent job. The relationships between the women are so varying and profound that they eclipse the relationship between Qianlong and his wives. Acknowledging that he's a monarch, it's kind of of hard to be sympathetic towards the Emperor. He's looking for someone (mainly Ruyi) to love him unconditionally and be unchanging, yet he himself changes over the course of his reign (towards paranoia). I wouldn't say the show is exciting, but you get invested in the characters. Their characterizations are quite realistic and down to earth.
  • @iampheng haha how fast they jump to conclusions and subsequently change tunes. Seems like China's got its own Weinstein case
  • @lynn90 haha, yeah. i don't actually watch any of her shows cause her characters aren't that interesting. But then her real persona is much more interesting to follow.
  • @kmfayb I agree. I'm not a huge fan on reading about somebody's peeing posture either. With that said, I just don't agree with ppl being shocked and policing what women should do or not do in public.
  • @iampheng thank you. Good to see someone on here that doesn't use Google translate to voice their outdated arguments
  • @kmfayb We know it because we read it in the article. I wasn't taking shots at you (but clearly you were at me), but if you wanna own it, then go ahead. Also, you don't know me, so please don't try to assume anything about me. I can clarify that if I want to start something, I would have just responded directly to you. My comment was made in support of @sarahh. Thanks for responding directly to me.
  • @iampheng Lol..I know...Damn she sure doesn't sound sane after breaking up w/that ex. I mean good thing she's happy but sharing bathroom habits on social media? What is she the Asian Kardashians? She will be posting bathroom selfies soon. haha LOL
  • @iampheng you contradict yourself. If we know what the dirtbag has done in the past, obviously the women knew too. They should have respect for themselves, and the sanctity of marriage and told him to piss off. I did not excuse his behaviour, if you are taking shots at me, you need to read my comments carefully. Both Wu Xiubo and these women ate guilty. Don't start something out of lack of being able to comprehend, it does not become you.
  • I wonder if ppl will come defend him with a "tender age is no excuse" and "those girls should've known better." If allegations are true, this individual is trash. And I had no idea Cosby was in jail...
  • What's the problem? Is it because now ppl know she's having sex with her bf?
  • Dear @sarahh You are absolutely correct. People always say it takes two to tango, and then blame the women involved. Nobody thinks it's the man's job to regulate his own behavior at all. He's not taking responsibility for the affairs, not taking responsibility for his wife, and not taking responsibility for his children. Why aren't we also criticizing this man who's failing to act like a grown ass adult, like a human being? Some of us are even rationalizing his behavior and jumping to conclusions about what the women were thinking. We obviously know what the man has done in the past: he can't say no. Trash.
  • Hahaha yeah...I'd say she looks good cause she's thin. She looks like she has great legs too! People have different preferences for what they find attractive, so I can see how she'd be admired for being thin in Asia.
