Of course what the sleezy guys did to your girlfriend and were saying is not appropriate at all like Mel has said, but I think you are judging all guys on a thing that only a small percentage of sleezy guys may think or believe. I mean are you like that? Of course you aren't, so why does that mean that most other guys are? They just aren't. When I was in Bangkok this sort of thing was not too openly shown except maybe in Patpong where most women are prostitutes or if you explored further afield in Pattaya, but again it isn't all people it is a minority. I think you get it in all cultures, but some more so than others. Hopefully this is just a one off and you and your girlfriend never encounter this crap ever again.
I dont think Zachary thinks all white guys are like that. I think he is just very angry, that somebody did that to his girlfriend. I think, in this case he is entitled to blow off some steam.
Zachary, just stay close to your girlfriend, when u are out, if there are sleezos like that about.
Yea thanks Mel, I was definately blowing off steam!
But it sucks, I never wanted to be one of those boyfriends who is all seemingly obsessive with my girl, I guess I have to watch and protect like a hawk from the farangs that are out "preying" on their sex victims
I can understand the blowing some steam off thing very well.
It's just a shame as well, that there are just normal and nice relationships like yours who are looked upon in a not so friendly way by other travellers.
But just enjoy Zach!
While I totally agree that a lot, and I mean, a lot, of Western men act like this while traveling in Asia - as if its one huge brothel I have seen the flip side. I have been out with my partner and women have approached him in front of me and offered their services and fallen all over him.
The mentality in Asia seems to be heavily leaning to "poor white man has an older wife he must want to buy young Asian girl".
I have had older women say in front of me "you have no children? my beautiful young daughter will give you many babies, you must meet her"
But I blame the western men completely who's behavior promotes this kind of thinking. They act like pigs in Asia. I was shocked one night to see an older man we met socially in China, who is a wealthy business man/exporter come into a classy restaurent with a drugged out Chinese prostitute who looked about 15.
The majority of Western men lose their brains completely when they get to Asia and are too stupid and too boorish to give the Asian women any respect ! Or the wives they leave at home. EVEN when their wives are with them -- they act like pigs let loose in a gigantic trough.
I am also fed up and disgusted with those, and there are a lot, who live with an Asian women, promise to marry her and take her back home with them. Use her, knock her up and then leave -
A Chinese doctor told me she hates the Western men for the diseases they spread through Asia, STD's, for the volumes of young women she sees who are left with a disease or a pregnancy and then the men vanish after promising to marry her.
Everywhere you go you see a fat ugly old white man with a young Asian woman. Its sickening.
