why does they look so malnutritioned ? like heavily anemic!!!
Even a leaf blower will blow them faster than the moon shuttle it seems...
Just joking....
They are super cute ...🕵️‍♂️
Chinese society is eating more meat and high calorie food than ever and the young people of this generation are getting very tall.

But the girls are thinner as ever. Social media is pushing these norms, I agree.

Something I was curious about is that in literally every faloo novels there is somehow a person streaming.
"Is the streaming culture really that huge?"
There was a trend back on Chinese tiktok about the waist size being being very small and such.
It was heavily criticised but it's on the Chinese guys and girls on how they view which aesthetic is pleasing to the eye.
Jade hands and legs cherry lips bullshit.
Streaming is modern China in a nutshell. It is very big and very commercialized. Comrade Xi is trying to stamp it out or bring it down a notch anyways. lol

Think of it as the Wild West at the nexus technology and pure capitalism:

Influencers are more powerful as trendsetters in China than they are in the West especially among women. The slim aesthetics are more pushed from females than males. Not to say that Chinese men don't like thin girls but the main pressure to be thin is from other girls.

One style of Han Fu is Dunhuang. This is based on the paintings, carvings and statues of the town Dunhuang.

The modern interpretations of the styles of Dunhuang which was on the Silk Road and definitely included Indian influences among others!

Of course, men and women are not the same race. In China 80%+ of men are Chinese Sino Han of ydna haplogroup O-M175 (and descendants). Women come from many lineages. This suggests war, conquest, genocide and the capturing of women. Or perhaps it was just via a hand on the head.

Head size suggests the Chinese Sino Han men will grow very large indeed.

from birth the body grows many times. The head changes much less and forms a size quickly. Lots of time to manipulate body growth. Little to manipulate the head.
head to body ratio.

I don't know about the head size theory. lol

Yes, it is well known now that northern Han Chinese and southern Han Chinese both have the same paternal lineages but southern Han have more varied maternal lineages. The original Han were a northern group from the North China Plain. Southern Hans have distinct Southeast Asian genetic markers but they are still very close to northern Han overall. The largest admixture to the Han were the ancient Yue groups who ate rice (original Han ate wheat.) Yues are not that distant from Hans.

China's rough terrain shows and explains the cultural diversity and links of various regions.
Natural barriers such as the Tibetan plateau, Mongol steppe, vast desert in Central Asia and the Pacific all isolate and protect the Chinese core from the rest of the world before the 19th century.

China's country life after travel opens up again:
Same old Chinese propaganda. Using westerners fired on money to show how cool things are in China.

Just had words with people staying in China. They mentioned that no restrictions, everything open. but the moment they shared pics it made it clear how controlled this openness is: Empty streets, empty Movie halls, not even 10% crowd in shopping areas and food streets like before covid.
