Spinster remarks meant well: Chang

The PFP legislator's remarks are discriminatory in terms of gender and nationality, said Chiu Ya-ching of TransAsia Sisters Association, an organization that mainly helps brides from Southeast Asia.

Nationality has nothing to do with being a good wife, said Liu Chuan, a Taiwanese man who married a Cambodian woman years after his Taiwanese wife died.

More Unmarried Men than Women in Taiwan: MOI

Surveys conducted by the Ministry of the Interior (MOI) showed instead that there are far more unmarried males than females in the country.

Around 50 percent of women

between the ages of 20 to 49 are married, while only 44 percent of men in the same age bracket are married, an MOI survey conducted in 2010 said.

At the end of 2011, 2.17 million women in Taiwan were unmarried, while the figure for men was 2.7 million, another MOI survey showed.

Chang Show- foong: eat your words. We all know-needless to repeat-the reasons why men marry more foreign brides and why the remaining Taiwanese unmarried women can’t find a good local husband. You also very well know that your remarks are discriminatory and that discrimination is ingrained in Taiwanese society because local women discriminate when searching for a prospective husband ruling out people outside their race or caste, blue collar workers, farmers, "black-hand laborers", and do not marry even indigenous people (aborigines), not to mention south-east Asian grooms.
