Uncle Xi and The Party have had a look at the way things are going in Chinese entertainment, and they don’t like the cut of the jib of male celebrities. According to the Chinese establishment, there are too many girlie men appearing on the screen and they aim to make them disappear – a Chinese specialty.
According to The Associated Press:
Broadcasters must “resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal esthetics,” the TV regulator said, using an insulting slang term for effeminate men — “niang pao,” or literally, “girlie guns.”
That reflects official concern that Chinese pop stars, influenced by the sleek, girlish look of some South Korean and Japanese singers and actors, are failing to encourage China’s young men to be masculine enough. -AP
Good news, I say. More manly movies to come out of China. With suitable propaganda, of course, but that’s a poison we’re already dealing with in the Anglosphere. I mean, who can deny Operation Red Sea is manly as fuck, a movie about manly Chinamen punishing jihadi nutjobs? Might as well see manly Chinamen brutalizing deserving pissants instead of men in leotards warning us about the climate…?
