BEIJING — China's government banned effeminate men on TV and told broadcasters Thursday to promote "revolutionary culture," broadening a campaign to tighten control over business and society and enforce official morality.
President Xi Jinping has called for a "national rejuvenation," with tighter Communist Party control of business, education, culture and religion. Companies and the public are under increasing pressure to align with its vision for a more powerful China and healthier society.

The party has reduced children's access to online games and is trying to discourage what it sees as unhealthy attention to celebrities.
Broadcasters must "resolutely put an end to sissy men and other abnormal esthetics," the TV regulator said, using an insulting slang term for effeminate men — niang pao, or literally, "girlie guns."
That reflects official concern that Chinese pop stars, influenced by the sleek, girlish look of some South Korean and Japanese singers and actors, are failing to encourage China's young men to be masculine enough.
Broadcasters should avoid promoting "vulgar internet celebrities" and admiration of wealth and celebrity, the regulator said. Instead, programs should "vigorously promote excellent Chinese traditional culture, revolutionary culture and advanced socialist culture."

Xi's government also is tightening control over Chinese internet industries.
It has launched anti-monopoly, data security and other enforcement actions at companies including games and social media provider Tencent Holding and e-commerce giant Alibaba Group that the ruling party worries are too big and independent.
Rules that took effect Wednesday limit anyone under 18 to three hours per week of online games and prohibit play on school days.

Game developers already were required to submit new titles for government approval before they could be released. Officials have called on them to add nationalistic themes.

The party also is tightening control over celebrities.
Broadcasters should avoid performers who "violate public order" or have "lost morality," the regulator said. Programs about the children of celebrities also are banned.

On Saturday, microblog platform Weibo Corp. suspended thousands of accounts for fan clubs and entertainment news.
A popular actress, Zhao Wei, has disappeared from streaming platforms without explanation. Her name has been removed from credits of movies and TV programs.

Thursday's order told broadcasters to limit pay for performers and to avoid contract terms that might help them evade taxes.

Another actress, Zheng Shuang, was fined 299 million yuan ($46 million) last week on tax evasion charges in a warning to celebrities to be positive role models.

:lachen: These are the video games rules in my house and my kids are big mad about it. My oldest son has used these stories as evidence that he is living under an oppressive dictatorship. I maintain that screen time is unhealthy. :look:

Anyway Chinese people need to do something about their nutty government. I feel sorry for them, but as an American I have my own authoritarian, nut job filled government to worry about. This is less oppressive than that mess in Texas.

"effeminate men" .. this seem soooo subjective.
I think this is their way of preventing more youth becoming more "liberal" rather than conservative

I would like to see some examples of men that will be deemed sufficiently “masculine” by Chinese standards to appear on television. :look:
:lachen: They already censor gay relationships on tv, so now I guess they are censoring boy bands. :lachen: I watched an Chinese anime on Netflix where the main characters were obviously gay, but were pretending to just be good friends. But it wasn’t fooling anyone IMO. I don’t know why they bothered.

They need to leave BTS alone. :lol:

China has plenty of reg deg, traditional, driven, bring home bacon and look after family men. Might not all be extra masculine, but not "effeminate" acting/dressing either.

Just started watching celebrity TV again in the UK and if effeminate men were banned there would be a lot less to watch :look: It will always be over represented in showbiz compared to the general public.

Either A Blessing Or A Lesson.
Not go lie. I'm not mad. The dudes below faces are beat to the china doll gods! I can see contour and highlight on three sets of cheeks and I'm pretty sure they all got on matte lipstick. I would like for men of all ages to step away from the makeup counter, the nail salon and out of women's clothing departments (and restrooms) and go back over to the men's section and make some new stuff outta their old stuff.

Maybe Asian dudes ain't the tallest and brolic-ist but put them :censored: in a martial arts, mogul or villain scene

and the testosterone makes itself known. Bring THIS pooh back.
