Reference: Southeast Asia's sordid secret, Bangkok Post, November 1, 2007

Asians like to think of their sordid state of prostitution, particularly in the case of paedophilia, as an evil imposed on them by Western debauchery. Asians are presented as innocent victims. It is, they say, the relative poverty of the victims in comparison to the seemingly infinite wealth of the falang that is the primal cause of their sordidness. In other words, the twin evils of child prostitution and paedophilia are imposed on them from without and not from within. The reality is more sordid than that for it is Asian men that are the primary sexual predators in this realm and it is Asian misogyny that makes this kind of predation possible. Debauched falangs did not create this situation. They have come only to feed in a feeding frenzy of the Asians' own making.
