I'm getting more rude comments about China than rude comments about the adoption of a Chinese daughter.
I physically cringe when I hear them. My whole body stiffens and it takes me everything I have not shoot back something about the location of the person's head, if you know what I mean.
Talk about the Great Wall of China. There's an invisible Great Wall of America for some people who cannot think beyond America's borders.
Example. I was telling someone how kind the locals were to us. I gave examples- like being treated to dinner with locals we had recently met and their families. That was such a moving experience for us. And what did the person say back to me? "That's shocking, since the Chinese are such rude and nasty people."
Yeah. So you can see why I get upset. Then I realize that some people want to remain locked inside their minds and nothing I do or say will ever change that.
It's still irritating, tho.
