Feminism in Korea: The Ultimate Tease!

Writing an article like this seems like a suicide mission, albeit I feel obliged to inform my fellow man. Now, don’t misunderstand. I don’t believe in hating in any shape or form, but there are times in my life where I have wished I was capable of such things. Usually, females were the cause of such emotions.

Generally, I have the philosophy of understanding conflicts rather than adding fuel to the fire by simply hating. At the same time, the injustice, the pain that I see is that men are suffering all over the world. No one seems have the slightest sympathies for men’s issues.

Okay, let’s get into it! Why was South Korea (RoK) such a shock to me?

Note: The above half of the article was written on 6th of September 2016, amidst a mini/personal crisis.

Since its been a good 2 weeks I have left South Korea for Thailand, I can reflect back on that time with little emotional influence on my writing.

So what happened? To be honest, South Korea mainly sucked for me. Why you ask? Well… the truth is I was alone. I felt like I was under attack by radical feminists as I read more into the history and social issues of South Korea. In fact, I had barely any interaction with the locals. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before. I walked for many kilometers and many hours, yet I failed to make eye contact with a single person. It was as if I was a ghost walking through a town. I was longing the days of being pushed around in the metro/subway systems in China.

Maybe it’s too soon for met to judge South Korea, but I would have to say though, it is a girl’s paradise/heaven. Especially if you love to shop. But be prepared, South Korea is not a budget country.

I will summarise by saying, if you’re a single guy, don’t go to South Korea on your own. You’ll end up returning back home depressed and hungover from all the flavored Soju. Also, I will take my Australian BBQ over Korean BBQ any day of the week :D. I think South Korea can potentially be really fun if you meet the following conditions: 1. You’re either traveling there as a group or you’re a girl. 2. Money is not an issue for you, you can shop as much as you’d like. 3. You’re a young person or have the mentality of one.

I don’t want to sound like an old geezer… but there is much better times to be had spending a lot less money.

Australian Singles! Who are they? Where are they?

So you’ve fantasized about going to this beautiful island / country called Australia.

australian singles

The place with sexy young Australian singles just waiting for your international coolness to touch down in the land of the “down under”. But, you did a quick google search or two. Counted the coins in your piggy bank. Soon, you realized that traveling to Australia is a distant dream. It’s unfortunate that you will never meet all the single Australians, to you heart’s content. It’s like the gods are taking a piss at you, this paradise of single beautiful people is inaccessible to you.

Australian Singles: Where are they?

Well here’s the good news!

We will come to you, no need for you to travel to one of the most expensive countries in the world. (“Sydney and its southern cousin, Melbourne, have ranked seventh and eighth most expensive cities to live in out of 140 cities in 93 countries worldwide“, Allianz)

Australian Singles: Who are they?

And here’s the bad news!

We don’t look like any of these pictures on this post! *sadface*. You probably bumped into us without even knowing that we were australian singlesAustralian. (“A new report has found Australia is one of the most multicultural countries in the world“, ABC). Well well well… did I just ruin your dreams even further? Now, don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that there aren’t any really attractive Australian individuals out there. I am just saying, whether they’re attractive or not, you can’t really tell who’s from where these days solely based on someones looks.

So, what do Australian singles look like you say?

Well, you’re on the right path of questioning (not exactly though, explained later). We (Australians) look like everyday people really. Just because mainstream media in your home country has painted the image that Australians have blonde hair and blue eyes, doesn’t make us all look that way. In my personal opinion (coming from a person who literally grew up in Sydney), that image is actually the minority, I would even go as far as saying its a fraction of Sydney’s population.

Look at me and Leshanta for example. I look like I’m from the middle east (I have actually been called a few different things like: Indian, Italian, Thai, Filipino, etc.). Whereas a lot of strangers we bump into through our travels quickly conclude that Leshanta is from India. Long story short, stereotypical appearances that mainstream media portray no longer hold true.

The Silver Lining! Ah… The Silver Lining!

Let me try to recover your shattered fantasy/dreams from the ground with a taste of reality. You’re BETTER OFF! Australia is probably one of the hardest and most expensive places for you to be dating. You buy a girl drink or two, she’ll have her fun and move on to the next guy. You see attractive buff guys, but they’re sitting at a corner having a beer with their mates. (Later in the next article I will describe “Why it sucks to be a single male in Sydney” based on my views and experiences).

ARGGHHH!!! You’ve ruined my dreams!

Not quite! I have dosed you with a hint of reality. The thing with stereotypical ideas is that, there’s always a hint of truth in there. If you really want to be dating Australian singles, then don’t give up on your dreams. Maybe one day you’ll have enough money in the bank for a vacation to Australia. Even better, maybe an Australian hottie will bump into you, asking you directions to a touristic landmark. So my advice is, be alert and don’t judge someone too quickly by their appearance.
