Chinese feminists: Crack down on sex offenders in positions of power!Chinese Domestic Affairs and International Relations after the First Cold War
The West: Yes, China's finally showing cracks! This will be the greatest triumph of democracy!
Chinese government: Hmm, these protesters have a point. Let's listen to the issues they have and do something about them
The West: ... heck
- I know you said this has nothing to do with OTL events, but I still want to ask: there have been recent controversies in China about the exact sort of thing that the feminists here (and OTL, I suppose) are protesting, with accusations of sexual abuse against men in power (at least from what I heard). Is this by any chance related to that?
- So, is the Second Cold War a commonly used term in this TL with regards to the Sino-Western relations?
- What is the relationship between China and the Internet in TTL? Is there anything on the scale of the Great Firewall, or is the censorship more limited?
- What is the situation of Hong Kong and Macau in this TL?
