Chinese tourism authorities are seeking investment to build a novel concept attraction â€” the worldâ€™s first â€œwomenâ€™s town,â€ where men get punished for disobedience, an official said Thursday.
The 2.3-square-km Longshuihu village in the Shuangqiao district of Chongqing municipality, also known as â€œwomenâ€™s town,â€ was based on the local traditional concept of â€œwomen rule and men obey,â€ a tourism official told Reuters.
â€œTraditional women dominate and men have to be obedient in the areas of Sichuan province and Chongqing, and now we are using it as an idea to attract tourists and boost tourism,â€ the official, surname Li, said by telephone.
The tourism bureau planned to invest between 200 million yuan ($26 million) and 300 million yuan in infrastructure, roads and buildings, Li said.
â€œWe welcome investors from overseas and nationwide to invest in our project,â€ he added.
The motto of the new town would be â€œwomen never make mistakes, and men can never refuse womenâ€™s requests,â€ Chinese media have reported.
When tour groups enter the town, female tourists would play the dominant role when shopping or choosing a place to stay, and a disobedient man would be punished by â€œkneeling on an uneven boardâ€ or washing dishes in restaurant, media reports said.
The project, begun in the end of 2005, was expected to take three to five years to finish.
I like that idea. I like it a lot! Men need to be punished for their actions. I am so sick of them using the excuse that men are cheating lying assholes cause thatâ€™s their nature and we women have to put up with it cause thatâ€™s just how men are. Bullshit!
