Forum rules
We hope that the Living in Taiwan forum will be of value to you and others. To ensure this, please note:

It is best to capitalize topics and to avoid vague titles. “Hi, I’m new” and “Help please” are examples of bad titles.

Before posting, please check the FAQ thread, and – more importantly – use the search function to ensure that your topic has not been discussed before and that there is not an existing thread you could update with your contribution.

While Living in Taiwan is a busy, wide-ranging forum, there are other specific forums for relationships, teaching, business, legal issues, animals, food, events, travel, restaurants, and so on. Check the Forumosa menu to find the most appropriate place for your post.

While it is preferable to post questions dealing with dissimilar topics in separate threads (“How Much for an Apartment in Tianmu?”, “Are There Many Foreigners in Tianmu?”), if you are a new arrival, it is possible to present numerous questions in one post, but realize that your thread will then, after two weeks, be merged into the New to Taiwan: Some Questions thread.

Government official's discriminating talk

“My wife is such a beautiful woman that not even someone with just a high-school education would believe [that I’m gay],” he said. “I respect each individual’s sexual orientation, but I am not ‘Brokeback’ [gay],” he added.

I guess he's not quite right at this ... shows how uneducated and uncivilized he is him selves ... and people like him are giving advice to the President? Poor Taiwan.
He respects an individual's sexual orientation but not an individual's education ... wanker! ... 2003535973

I've noticed gay men like beautiful women as much as the next guy. They're just not interested in getting naked with them.

But yeah - it is funny how people here think that "educated" means having a collection of diplomas.
