A jaw-dropping comment in a news article in today’s TT.
The topic is Southeast Asian wives, of whom there are only 115,000 in Taiwan according to the Ministry of the Interior as quoted in the article.
Someone called Kathy Ke, described as “chief executive officer of the Pearl S. Buck Foundation” is quoted as follows:
“These foreign spouses, who are often the main caregivers at home, have little idea about how to raise their children.”
Jesus suffering fuck. I have been here a long time, and I’ve listened to some shit over the years, but this takes the fucking biscuit. She goes on: “The impact of cultural differences slows down the learning process of these children; they may have difficulty expressing themselves verbally and imitating and achieving the same vocabulary as other children of the same age.”
I thought this had to be a mis-translation, so I bought the Liberty Times to see if they had the story, but I couldn’t find it.
I want to find out who this person is, and what the “Pearl S. Buck Foundation” is. Does anyone have the Chinese of what this person said?
Of course I have a lot to say about this, but I’d rather not. As I was sitting in MacDonalds this morning watching uncontrolled ill-mannered Taiwanese brats run around demanding everything under the sun, I thought of asking their oblivious Taiwanese parents how they would feel if I told them they had “little idea how to raise their children” and advised them to attend classes given by White Europeans on how to raise children.
