Reporter Witnesses 2 Teenage Chinese Girls Kissing on the Subway

This is, apparently, how you know China’s attitude toward The Gays is changing: Sitting on an air-conditioned subway car in Shanghai, Howard W. French observes, “Seated directly opposite me, two teenage girls were kissing in an unmistakably romantic way. They appeared to be no older than 17. One of them, strong of build and with short hair, was dressed and coiffed in a masculine style. Her longhaired companion, who was dressed in a pretty pastel skirt, was the picture of classic, old-school sweet 16. I tried to do what I immediately noted few of my fellow passengers could accomplish: not stare. But as I looked up from time to time, it struck me that among other things, amid all of the sustained touching, billing and cooing, there was willful, if mild, provocation taking place before my eyes. The statement that was being made seemed to say: ‘This is a new age, and people of our generation are free to do as we wish in our love lives, so get over it.’” Or maybe they were just horny?

    Asian girl-on-girl is about as hot as it can get for straight guys. Lesbians, too? Dunno.

    @Latebrosus: Yep.

    I don’t understand why this is news.

    Japanese lesbian porn is extremely fake though. There is just no passion whatsoever there and their version of kissing is “swallow or suck your partner’s tongue”. Western-style porn (if done by the right company) with Asian actresses on the other hand….

    It’s news because because being openly gay is still a new-fangeled thing in Asia. There has been some great progress in recent years and the author highlights that. It isn’t really underground anymore (also evidenced by depictions in movies), but in cultures that are so extremely heavily based on family, public appearance and saving face, being open about it still carries a social stigma.

    @Mark: It is not new fangeled in Asia. Like most countries, before the arrival of white European nations and their fucked up culture, they were fine with homosexuality. So…

    I’m not totally sure about China, but more western minded and previous colony of the UK, Hong Kong has definitely gone down this route long ago. You can hardly walk down the street in the busier district without finding at least one same sex (mostly female) couple and at least a few masculine looking/androgyne females either.
