Plastic surgery isn&rsquo;t the only example of this: whitening powders are used heavily in order to appear whiter; based on the belief in China that a lighter skin tone is more desirable than a darker one.</p> <p>As China becomes a more affluent nation, the taste for Western products have become even more in demand. And who is most often seen behind the billboards and magazine advertisements promoting fashion products? Almost always a Western model or a Chinese model endowed with Western features.There&rsquo;s no doubt since Western fashion products have a competitive advantage over China in terms of quality, they wield a great deal of control and influence in regards to beauty standards.</p> <p>Why does China subscribe to a Western standard of beauty?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

    I am curious about it, too. I don't think it has much to do with westernization. When I was little I wasn't exposed to much western TV shows, I really thought the snake witch beautiful:

    Don't the plastic surgeries mentioned above make women like her? haha.

    this is a simple issue. chinese guys want their girl white, so their girls do what they can to get white.... White guys like blondies, so the chinese girls colour their hair for them... I like big boobs, so Chinese girls wear fake padded bra for me... Everyone compromises to an extent... That's why ... I'm in love with Yingluck Shinawatra Everytime I see her, I cannot control the hard-on, my mind is blown away. I wanna pack my bags and move to BKK ... God help I don't manage as close to a few inches away from her cos I gonna grab and kiss her, maybe do more before her bodyguards do me some harm. Fock Yeah! who cares... 

    So what am I saying? To Hell with the Whities
