In Hong Kong they are ’lang mo,’ in Malaysia ‘ah-lian,’ in Japan ‘gravure idols,’ in America ‘Hoochie TABs,' the cultureless British Born Chinese and British Chinese community being periodically sluggish in development, still use the genre of ‘glamour modelling.’
Although a lightweight in comparison to British Born Chinese pornstar – Tigerr Benson, naturally unattractive, an obvious Chinese victim of a white female and white male dominated western society with her huge unrealistic implants, our own middle shelf British Born Chinese glamour model Crystal Chan is rather similar but less acute.
At 5ft 2in with short fat stumpy legs, Crystal Chan is an unlikely model, neither classy enough nor tall enough, nor attractive enough nor Chinese enough for the Chinese cosmos pageants, however, this is not the higher class world of pageanting, this is the white dominated world of British glamour modelling, there aren’t many Chinese girls doing this in the UK, so for the moment she can have her cake and eat it.
Her latest shoot reached the echelons of the mainstream - Zoo magazine. Zoo magazine rather like The Daily Sport is read by lower class white men, a reflection of the fact the models are also of the same variety -i.e white and lower class, presumably Crystal Chan is the first East Asian (or at least BBC) model for Zoo, whilst an achievement, it’s not necessarily a positive one. The real question is... Why would any Chinese girl want to appear on a wank mag for lower class White men? (Note the St.George flag bra below).
Perhaps the answer is all too obvious. Although Crystal Chan is a representation of many other young Asian girls in recent years that have entered the world of pseudo-modelling, Crystal however, has avoided the Far East market, rather she is westernised, she was raised and educated in Cornwall, yes that very Chinese part of Britain called Cornwall, attended a predominantly white academy school, her heroes are other non-Asian models Katie Price Jordan and Kim Kardashian, her musical tastes are black/urban – 50cent, Rihanna, Rochelle etc, she does not follow any Chinese people on her 120+ long Twitter list, in fact the only Asian person she follows on Twitter is Yoko Ono – who of course was married to White man John Lennon, do we need to say more?
Crystal appears to follow the looks of other westernised or Americanised Asian models such as Francine Dee, Kaila Yu, Tila Tequila, it’s not an East Asian look, she is also extremely tanned, another sign of her swaying towards black/urban or western culture, when so many East Asians are buying skin whitening products, the westernised Asian females go sun bathing - the favorite pastime of white people.
In this photo, her tattoo’s are visible on her pelvic girdles and her belly button piercing, both are typical signs of skankiness. Tattooing of the skin is highly frowned upon in Confucian culture. Tattooing, tanning and hair dying of the blonde variety are all reflections of western influence although many trashy South East Asian girls also sport that look, just add a drug infested drunken night out in a dance club and the list is complete.
So two questions, is it pitiful that British Born Chinese females of the educational underachieving variety have trodden down this route or is she simply a product of weak British Chinese parenting trodden over by dominant western culture?
...is Crystal Chan empowering young British Born Chinese women to achieve their ambitions in white dominated industries in ways unrelated to traditional Chinese educational achievement?
