I'm definitely not a normal local because I'm Westernized and think/act like a Westerner, which is not how a Taiwanese is expected to be.

Discover Friendlier Foreign Women, Social Connection, Authentic People and Saner Cultures, Lower Cost Living, Healthier Food, Greater Freedoms, and More!

Just because it takes place in hushed voices in your bedroom with your girlfriend, and not on a street corner, doesn’t mean it’s not prostitution. She’s lowering her interest rates — if you know what I mean. Expecting them to make a difference on the “broader world” is torture.
Expecting them to do anything but fuck up and then not know how to fix it is irresponsible, irrational, and worst of all: unmanly. They’re all born with a black American Express Card called a “vagina”.
