Controversy[edit]

See also: Boycott against Xiao Zhan Incident

In February 2020, a person authored slash fan fiction novel hosted on Archive of Our Own featuring Xiao Zhan, called "Falling," went viral on the Chinese social networking site Sina Weibo. The fan fiction depicts a pedophilic female prostitute named "Xiao Zhan" in a sexual relationship with a minor named "Wang Yibo" ("Wang Yibo" Xiao Zhan's co-star in The Untamed (2019), a TV series featuring the co-stars in a bromance, adapted from a danmei web novel, due to censorship reasons the duo could not be portrayed as they are in the novel, as lovers). Some fans of Xiao Zhan believed the fan fiction to be insulting to Xiao Zhan, and rallied like-minded fans to report the offending post to Sina Weibo officials for containing "pornographic content". The viral fan fiction was subsequently banned on Weibo, causing a surge of traffic from Mainland China to the original source of the fan fiction on Archive of Our Own site which fans mass reported to Chinese authorities and led to the entire Archive of Our Own site to be blocked in the country by the Great Firewall, drawing the ire of its users in Mainland China and backlash on Xiao Zhan.[52][53][54][55][56] This controversy drew on the intersections between cancel culture, homophobia, censorship and reporting culture on social media in China, culminating in the cyberbullying of Xiao Zhan. Consequently, he lost numerous brand endorsements and was forced to issue an apology for the actions of his fans.[57][58]

On 9 May 2020, Xiao Zhan was invited by BTV to perform Bamboo Rock (竹石) in support of China's healthcare workers who had bravely fought in the frontlines against the pandemic.[59]

Original article:
[Chinese]

Recently in London somebody had the great idea of putting out a call for people to take mobile-phone photos of handsome men on the city's underground and then post the pictures on the Internet for everyone to enjoy.

Within just a few days, tens of thousands of pictures were up on display: a debonair older man reading a novel, a dreamy-looking guy with his eyes closed leaning against the door, a young Apollo playing video games, a short-haired bloke with well-formed muscles. In brief, it looks as if London is a paradise full of only the most handsome chaps.

The concept was soon picked up by douban.com, a popular Chinese social networking website. Yes, that's right, someone thought it wise to put out a similar online "Call for handsome Chinese guys on the subway." Let's just say that photographs most certainly did not come streaming in.

However, a most passionate response was elicited by a very different subsequent appeal to the plugged-in masses: Please send in photos of "the most horrid men on China's subways."

Soon there was a digital display of wonders: a man picking his nose, another digging out his earwax, yet another man spraying saliva while talking loudly on his cell phone, and one particularly relaxed fellow putting his belt on in public. One wonders about the pictures that were not taken.

What's wrong with the world!? Have the cute guys all really gone to London, leaving the unsightly ones behind in Beijing?

British Class

I must admit that it's probably true that handsome men concentrate in London. Once when I was crossing a street there, a tall blond lad ran past me. He was wearing an Oxford shirt and a pair of tight-fitting blue pants. His tie flew in the air while he ran. His brown postman-style messenger bag hung diagonally over his shoulder.

And when I boarded the train, I saw another guy leaning next to the automatic door with clean and neat short hair. He was wearing a windbreaker and a brown check scarf, simple and elegant.

Back in a Beijing station, a man in front of me was talking to his girlfriend. When he turned around, I saw a whole layer of dandruff on his jacket. Next to him, a portly man grumbled "He – Pei!" and spat a clot of phlegm under the seat.

Now I do believe that some British men have dandruff and also have to spit sometimes. I also believe that Chinese men can look smart in an Oxford shirt, a pair of nicely cut pants and a trench coat. The question is "Why don't we see them?"

Now, "properly dressed" and "smartly dressed" are two different notions. If many men in London look smart, most Chinese men don't even qualify as "properly dressed."

Personal upbringing and cultivation are the fundamental reasons. But having a single value system in Chinese society probably also helps explains why.

Boy Next Door

In every Chinese boy's youth, there's always a "rival" – the boy next door.

This rival was always top of the class and artistically gifted. When he grows up, he is bound to make big money, have a wonderful wife and raise a genius son just like him ...

On the other hand, tall good-looking, nicely-mannered and physically endowed boys are often held up as a negative example. If you look up to him and care about your looks, you'll never make it to the university ...!

In short, we are brought up to think that professional success is the only value that matters. A stylish image, appropriate manners or a smart appearance are not real concerns.

Wang Fong, the editor-in-chief of China's GQ magazine, says "Chinese men care very much about their career and family, while they have difficulty in accepting the idea that somehow men also have to dress up."

A survey conducted before the launching of L'Officiel Hommes, a new Chinese men's magazine, revealed that for most Chinese men, wealth and social status are the sole priorities.
As for their build and looks, who cares!

Queer Eyes for Straight Guys

Although the female fashion and beauty industries are both booming in China, they have a relatively short history – and that of men's fashion, is even shorter.

Only now are male fashion magazines getting their Chinese editions - beyond GQ there's also Esquire and Men's Health – and it may begin to have an effect on men's appearance and grooming.

Still, it's undeniable that most of these magazines' readers are either those rare few who are stylish anyway, or those who are gay - though these magazines will deny it.

There is hope. There is an American TV show called "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" and in each episode, five tasteful gay men come to the rescue of a hopeless straight male.

Guan Zhong, an ancient Han sage, said "Only in a wealthy society are there people of good manners." But I don't feel like waiting any longer. I wish there were a local version of that American reality show. I would like to see just how those picky gay friends handle those guys picking their noses on the subway.

So we will do without the subtle details that my neighbor, Aunt Masha, told. Me about my mother, that she shoved her pussy in her presence at 12 EPT. And it's also dumb to write about my mother's first intercourse, since we still live in our village, and everyone knows about my.

Mother. Hello Zaya - came from the corridor of our apartment.

Having paid an obscenely scanty bakshish (bribe), we got into a car without a top and moved on. Heat and humid air, comfort did not add, but everything more than covered the wonders of Great India. My God. The ruins of Mahenjo-Daro, hidden in vines and palm trees, concealed ancient truths.
