BEIJING: Chinese and Hong Kong blogs are waging war against each other over whether children should be permitted to urinate and defecate on sidewalks. Hong Kongers say its wrong, while the Chinese defend these so-called traditional customs. Well, I'm going to weigh in on the matter and side with Hong Kong, by saying that watching children taking a dump is not a pleasant sight.
China Radio International reports that, "Another online controversy between the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong has broken out, yet again; this time over a toddler urinating in the street. As shown in video clips online, a young couple carrying their two-year-old boy becomes embroiled in a fierce quarrel with two local Hong Kong youngsters, while one of the youngsters proceeded to take photos of the scene at Sai Yeung Choi Street South in Mong Kok."
I understand that children do face biological emergencies, but Chinese parents should at least find some bushes or hide them from public view. On multiple occassions, I was eating at a restaurant and as I looked out the window, I saw a kid defecating in plain view. Talk about losing your appetite.
According to China Radio International, "Surrounded by onlookers, a woman from the Chinese mainland desperately explains to the crowd that her family had queued in front of a public toilet for a long time until her young son was unable to hold out any longer."
Addittionally, many young children, not yet potty trained, wear pants with holes in them so they can pee and poo on a street at their own convenience. I say, "get thee some diapers." If China is really serious about reforms then it's time to put a smack down on children urinating and defecating on busy sidewalks. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
