The Chinese government in China announced on Thursday that they are banning effeminate men from appearing on television.
In recent months, the Chinese government asserted control over the nation’s digital social media and entertainment industries in what critics claim to be a bid to impose its cultural policies. Under a new directive issued by China’s National Radio and Television Administration, Chinese broadcasters must promote “excellent traditional culture, revolutionary culture and advanced socialist culture,” according to a translation by the Associated Press.
Additionally, broadcasters were told they must “resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal aesthetics.” The directive is part of a “national rejuvenation,” a cultural program advocated by President Xi Jinping which seeks to institute certain values in Chinese culture, according to the AP.
These broadcast rules reflect the concern of the Chinese government that widespread, feminine depictions of men might discourage young men from masculine pursuits (Daily Caller).
