What goes viral in China shows the singularity and insularity of Chinese culture from the rest of the world. Apparently taking selfies with a pencil under your boop is the latest craze.
Perhaps the image of a woman having a pencil under her boop signifies both sexiness and being a good student. While the rest of the world scratches our heads, China parties on. How come in such a connected world China’s culture continues to appear so odd and unique? Blame their censorship of internet. Censoring Chinese citizens’ use of the internet makes them create their very own unique culture.
