The sexual adventures by a foreign teacher in Shanghai were only discovered in China itself after his blockspot-site got unblocked a few weeks ago. This foreign (and pretty tame) male version of sexblogger Muzi Mei. But, as Marc van der Chijs also noted, there comes an extra dimension to it when a foreigner is doing this kind of stuff so publicly.
First the "Who Is Chinabounder" site sets up a witchhunt", trying to "ferret" the writer out. Some of the commentors says "this is funny" as more details emerge, but I tend to disagree here. Says one commentor:
leave chinabounder alone, guys. I am Chinese. Although I don't agree with him on many issues, I don't mind reading his words. After all, you can not rid off the prejudice by shutting him upBut the issue has been liften on an, eh, higher, level by professor Zhang Jiehai of the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences who really goes after out English-language teacher. (Here in a translation by ESWN).
At least our teacher has noted the dangerous turn this story has taken. Cultural Revolution style prosecutions at the internet are unfortunately not uncommon. This has become a story to watch.
Today, with tremendous anger, I will tell you the story of an immoral foreigner and I call upon all Chinese compatriots to get together and kick this immoral foreigner out of China.
This is how it is: Several days ago, a friend told me about a blog run by an English man in Shanghai. I read it and I was shocked, angered and disgusted ... after I read his blog, I had only one idea: This is intolerable and this piece of garbage must be found and kicked out of China!!!
In his blog, he used extremely obscene and filthy language to record how he -- a foreign language teacher in Shanghai -- used his status as a teacher to dally with Chinese women, most of whom were his students. At the same time, he did everything that he could to insult, debase and distort the Chinese government and the Chinese men.
