Gay China - No Great Wall of the Rainbow but not flaming

Although homosexuality was legalized in 1997 and taken off the mental illness list shortly after, being openly gay in China is still frowned upon by the common citizen.  You would think with no religious or cultural boundaries  and it's only obstacle pressure form parents to have children, it would be in full flame. This pressure is so great that Gays are marrying unwitting partners to appease parents. In fact the problem has become common enough that there is a name for those who are at the heart of it. Straight women who are married to gay men are colloquially known as “tongqi” while straight men who are married to gay women are called “tongfu”.

Recently Vietnam has made laws to protect itself from the hedonistic Chinese hell bent on spreading their evil ways in gay novels.

However, in truth despite advances, the social stigma remains immense. According to a 2013 survey by U.S. research group Pew, only 21% of China's population was in favor of the acceptance of homosexuality. Same-sex marriage remains a taboo topic for many across China.A  number of clinics in China offer so-called "conversion" shock treatment to "cure" homosexuality.Apparently the older Gays hope that the new generation of Chinese rainbow warriors can grab the sword by the shaft and work it towards an explosion of acceptance as they have more resources and are more open. Gay marriage however is a long way off. Pity it would ease the pressure on the one child policy.
