From “Ancient China Simplified” (Edward Harper Parker)

As Chinese names sound uncouth to our Western ears, and will, therefore, in these introductory chapters only be used sparingly and gradually, it becomes correspondingly difficult to explain historical phenomena adequately whilst endeavouring to avoid as far as possible the use of such unintelligible names: it will be well, then, to sum up the situation, and even repeat a little, so that the reader may assimilate the main points without fatigue or repulsion.ugly China man

chinese conman is woman, Chinese cross dresser photo

Fang Gang Linfang or General Grunge is a Chinese conman, actually a Chinese con….woman thing.

This is a pic of Li Xu a China woman who went online and duped a bunch of chinese out of about 30-40,000 U$. The man/woman said he/she was  a college educated general in the chinese army and was looking for a permanent squeeze. Some fools bought into it and got taken to the cleaner only to find out he is a she and not in the army…

sometimes it sucks to be from China.
