Thais furious as 'farang' woman parades in her undies at Phuket temple

Recommended Posts

To all those "disgusted of Thailand" 

Could someone then kindly explain why you have these coyote dancers jiggling their bits and waggling their underwear at Temple fairs.

Its a sundress over a bikini for goodness sake, not the end of the world ! And certainly not "parading around in her underwear" a fair bit of artistic license there methinks

A touch of hypocrisy springs to mind here

But then again what do i know i would never go to a temple apart from to watch the coyote dancers

Outraged :cheesy:

 

I find it more outrageous that 75 deaths occur daily on the roads and "zippo" is done about it.

Hypocrisy at it's very best...

 

The whole thing with women and Buddhist monks arose from the fact that long ago., it was noticed that immodestly dressed women, or women touching monks made said monks all upstanding and randy rather than all spiritual and meditating. Gotta preserve the myth.

 

Of course Thais don't need to learn history unless it's nationalistic claptrap or can be tweaked to make Thais look all brave and all-conquering and stuff.

 

The reality is a bit different.

Ok...that's cute and disrespectful.  Why didn't the temple staff ask her to leave or rent a sarong?  I see this problem even at a local watt near Hua Hin.  Thai girls wearing short-shorts and halter tops.  If they have rules, enforce them.

If people can't control their sexual urges, then they should stay clear of temples until they can. Nothing disrespectful about it. The human body is not a mystery like it was 600 years ago. Thais should wake up and smell the coffee instead of hiding in a comfort blanket of humbug.

I haven been to several Thai Temple party's.

The Thai "sexy girls" dancing and singing there were dressed way more inappropriate, just saying before the farang bashing begins.

 

Yes been to a few alcohol being sold and drank to excess Thai dancing girls wearing very little clothing but these are Buddhist festivals so that's OK

Why wouldn't she?

 

    A merit inside a temple, where monks weren't seen all night long. They're too busy meditating, or mediataking? 

 

      Please not for members under 25 years of age.

 Does anyone think that she would try to enter a cathedral in her own country or in any western country dressed like that?

OK Bluespunk  :)

Do you understand this one better?

Does anyone think that she would try to enter a mosque dressed like that?

Buddha himself would consider the concept of a temple and Buddha images as complete rubbish and an insult to his teachings, and he would be deeply offended by the image of people prostrating in front of those images.

Obviously it was insensitive on the part of the woman. But done knowingly, unlikely. Done unknowingly, more than likely.

 

But more to the point, at some point, you have to wonder whether the continuing stream of these kinds of articles claiming locals' outrage over tourists'  behavior is part of an orchestrated xenophobia campaign.

 

It's pretty hypocritical for whatever supposed people to get outraged over this kind of small episode when the same society dishonors their religion (law flouting, jet-setting monks), their morals (human trafficking, domestic abuse), their laws (cop killing heirs, murderers running free), their environment (litter, pollution)  etc. in much much bigger ways on regular basis.
