Chinese Singer’s Romance With 12-Year-Old Girl Has Older Women Asking: Where’s My Man?

Via Weibo

The names Zhang Muyi and “Miki” were both trending on Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter, earlier today as the couple announced their relationship online. The twist? Singer Zhang (@张木易 ) just happens to be 12 years older than 12-year-old child model Miki (@MIKI加拿大的天使 ).

On Weibo, both the Chinese Zhang and the Canadian Miki declared their love repeatedly and posted pictures of themselves frolicking on the beach, snuggling on a couch, and playing a duet on the piano (see below). Explained @直播南京官方版, “Akama Miki, Canadian, born in September of 2000, was winner of the 2009 National New Silk Road Child Modeling Competition. In 2012 she began to openly date singer Zhang Muyi. Akama said on her Weibo [page] that when she is 16, she will marry him. In most Canadian provinces, with parental permission, 16 year olds can marry. This world is too crazy, if you can’t find a guy to marry you soon, even girls born after 2000 will have husbands!”

Not surprisingly, many netizens condemned the couple’s amorous behavior. @幸福0927 asked, “Where are the relevant departments when you need them?”

Yet many also congratulated the two. Said @YY渔, “Although I don’t think this is right, if this isn’t some kind of publicity stunt, I hope you can keep this love alive! Love is truest when you’re young! I hope that that boy can do it too! I wish you happiness!” Most of the thousands of comments, however, were unfavorable—but often not in the manner one might expect.

Tellingly, talk often shifted away from Zhang and Miki, and toward the larger issue of women and relationships. Said @魔鬼心计学, “A girl born after 2000 is getting married. Those of you born in the ‘70’s, ‘80’s, and ‘90’s: What do you have to say for yourself?” Wondered @Lazy的天涯, “How many girls born in the ‘90’s will find it hard to sleep at night, after getting this news?” The implication was that a woman should land a man as soon as possible to avoid competition from younger women–even if those younger women are underage girls.

Inevitably, conversation about China’s shengnu, or “leftover women,” lurked in the background. Many women left comments such as @猪头宝曈’s: “How do you think this makes an ‘80’s ‘leftover woman’ like me feel??”

As Leta Hong Fincher wrote in a recent post for the Ms. Magazine blog, there is a prevalent and widely believed myth in China that, despite the country’s male-skewed sex-ratio imbalance, women in their late twenties and beyond are spinsters for whom husband-landing is all but impossible. Many women are willing to compromise, make sacrifices, and settle for less as a result of baseless fears of life-long loneliness, combined with a healthy dose of familial and societal pressure to marry.

Netizen reaction to this bizarre affair shows that in China, and no doubt elsewhere, youth and submissiveness in women are still highly sought after. For many netizens, the focus of Zhang/Miki-related chat was the older women who were being “robbed”–a word that cropped up in many comments–instead of the fact that a young girl was arguably being taken advantage of. The fact that women in their 20’s and 30’s viewed Miki as a rival, rather than a victim, shows just how “robbed” of choice and chance many Chinese women truly feel.

    Sincerely hoping this is a publicity stunt and they’re not really a couple. But whether or not it is a publicity stunt, netizens responses are quite stunning: “love is blind” etc.

    In other news, where are her parents? And what do his friends think?

      If you have proof that he has had sexual contact with the girl I encourage you to contact the RCMP / Crown prosecutor. Until then your claim he’s a child molester has as much value as does my claim that you are a drug smuggler.

      • sascha

        that’s mighty legal of you, but take a look at the pictures. She is a baby and he is a grown man. Sure, in China women are whining about husbands or supporting the couple, but in other parts of the world, where women think about a few other things than being leftover and where babies are … babies … this looks a lot like cradle robbing.

          And you know this because? Judging a whole group of people when the article clearly said some supported the couple, some didn’t… it’s almost like saying Brian Teasdale is a typical Canadian. The only difference is there is evidence that Teasdale penetrated and physically abused minors.

        Are you a pedophile, stupid or both? 12 years old is physically too young, mentally too young, and legally too young. In Canada what he’s doing counts as sexual interference as he is courting a minor and could be tried for it. In addition like I said before, he also held a position of authority over her which puts this in the same category in Canadian law as if he was her teacher. It’s highly inappropriate. She’s not old enough to be making life decisions this early as she is not only not sexually mature, but not mentally mature either. There is no vagueness about this. There is a standard that has already been set. When shit like this happens outside of the world of media hype the offending adult is issued a restraining order, and if they wish to continue their relationship they must do so after the child reaches the age of 18 (when the matter goes through court like this age of consent doesn’t apply). I know this because A) I’m Canadian, B) This happened with my very stupid younger sister who was also dating a 24 year old looser. Difference is that she was 15, and even after she turned 16 he couldn’t see her. When she ran away with him, he was thrown in jail for a time. She is now 18 and they can see each other, but they don’t because she’s 18 and realizes what a looser he is now.

      • junius

        children are too young to give meaningful consent. in western societies, we have determined that children (those under the age of 16 or even 18 in some places), are not psychologically developed enough to understand the concept of consent, and are likely not physically developed enough to have completed puberty either. this means that they cannot fully understand the concept of giving consent for actions involving their bodies. they must be protected under the law to prevent people who are older from taking advantage of their innocence. why a 24-year-old man would be attracted to a 12-year-old girl really makes one ask what is wrong with him as well – a psychologically healthy man should not have an attraction to a child.

  • dlivo

    When she’s 18 & he’s 30 no one will give a….!

    • Lee

      The difference is: She’s currently a pre-pubescent young girl and he’s a grown man. It’s not the age difference. It’s kind of weird for a 24-year-old guy to look at a minor and want to marry her as soon as she’s legal. And I mean, he would have sexual feelings for her right? But if it’s sexual arousement from a 12-year old kid who hasn’t even hit puberty? Now THAT sounds like pedophilia.

      • http://disqus.com Ty

        Why are you calling her pre-pubescent? Puberty has frequently started prior to 12 for girls.

          Extremely rare for Chinese girls, and most other Asian, in general.

        • 123go

          According to what medical journal? Furthermore, puberty can be likened to ripening, it doesn’t mean that they’re ripe/ready. It means that she’s still developing. Even if she had hit puberty it certainly doesn’t mean that she’s fully sexually mature. That happens around 18 years old in reality, earliest at 16. There is a reason why in enlightened countries these are the normal ages that are set. It doesn’t matter what your opinions are about this matter. The nice thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you choose to believe it or not. She can’t even drive a car at 12, and you think that she’s old enough to be making serious life decisions? Yeah, I think you are definitely a pedo who’s clinging onto pseudo science, and hopes that you to will be able to take advantage of a child one day. It makes no sense why you would be fighting for this so hard otherwise.

          This is by definition pedophilia, from the psychology, biology, and legal textbook definitions of the word. Fight it all you want, she’s a child by every definition of the word, he’s a pedophile by every definition of the word. Your opinion on the matter means less than nothing in the face of facts. You can call people “ignorant”, or “bigoted” all you want, but we all know that those are just buzz words used to attempt to scare people away. It simply doesn’t work against those who are educated enough to see through such terribly flawed arguments.

      • 123go

        This is in the same category as a kid’s soccer coach “claiming their love for them”. Fun fact, age of consent doesn’t actually factor in if the older person has authority, or has had authority over the child in question in the past in Canadian law. So I just love the fact that they never mention the fact that even when she is 16 years old, because he was a teacher/coach to her it will still count as statutory rape. She is a child, she doesn’t know what love is, and her parents signed her up for vocal lessons so that she could learn how to sing. Not for her vocal couch to seduce her. I’m sure the last thing any parents want when they sign their kids up for lessons is for their couch to make advances on their children. So dude, grow up. This is sick, and it is by definition pedophilia, and if he were Canadian he could be tried for sexual interference.

    He should be in jail. This is outrageous. The last thing you think of looking at a 12 year old girl is that she needs to think about marriage. He does not love her. If he had any finer feelings for her he would want her to be a happy child. He is thinking of nobody but himself and his very weird obsession/control/perverted thoughts about this child. Would any woman really be jealous, or want a pervert for themselves? come on now. There should be no entertainment of the illegal, perverted designs this 24 year old man has on a young girl.

I concentrated on my career and school and now that I’m actively dating, I feel that most women I meet that are single born pre-1983, seem to want it all. Most women I dated older than 25, try to change me instead of embracing me for myself. For some reason, it seems I meet a lot of girls 22 to 25 that want to date and those girls tend to be more laid back. Then these older women complain about being single.

    What kind of parents …?! And what kind of creepy, insecure, emotionally stunted adult looks to a child? But let’s not forget, culturally in the East and West, men sought younger partners with society’s encouragement. The reason is of course so the men can hold the upper hand, have a compliant person to dominate. Funny, cos in my experiences of Chinese who leave China, don’t know about the urban, educated, mainland Chinese, the wife gets older and overcomes the age difference and is often the boss anyway. Hah, karma!

        This is 2013, who cares about fictional stories about bronze aged people who thought that drawing circles in the sand and dancing in them for hours caused rain to fall? He’s a pedophile, and so was Muhammad. Do you not realize that you’re on the internet, and even if people here are religious, they won’t give any fucks to give about you trying to justify pedophilia with the Bible? Most people haven’t even read the Bible, never mind follow it in it step by step. Those who are religious here are just as likely to support modern day pedophilia as they will jump for the opportunity to ban blended fabrics, work on Sundays, or killing non-virginal women who dare to marry. Talk about a failed argument.

    As a Westerner with less than a year’s experience of living in China, I have been reading articles on the topic above counterpointed by simultaneously following the ongoing news in the UK media concerning the Jimmy Savile investigations. There, and in the rest of the West, the relationship between the singer and the 12 year-old girl would simply be consigned to the category ‘child abuse’… Is the relationship perhaps perceived as platonic and unconsummated (which it may be) or is that groundswell of feminine anxiety regarding marriage enough to offset any other critical viewpoint? Sifting through various media reports from China in an attempt to interpret the culture satisfactorily fascinates me, but I fear that I may always be simply a bemused onlooker…

    He’s a loser for wanting to hang out sexually with a little girl. American standards or not, the fact that he is sexually interested in this little girl (just waiting for her to come of age so that he won’t get nailed for being the pedophile that he is) makes him a giant creep. Twelve is also too young to know what you want in a man.

    Also, Alanbello Super is a giant weirdo for being so in favor of this. Shut up and stop calling people “ignorants”, you moron. Ignorant is not a noun.

  • Anon

    1: Age-related norms; don’t forget the classical Greeks married off their daughters at 14, and yes, they were expected to get pregnant rather soon. The Japanese “romantic hero” Genji of Murasaki’s Tale of Genji (written by a woman) married a 5-year old girl, and I believe the 13-year old protagonists of the Chinese Dream of Red Mansions were to be married at 13 (hint, it didn’t work out; the protagonist got tricked into marrying the wrong girl by his family and it all ended in tears).
    2: This is probably a side-effect of gender disparities in China. As eligible brides become scarcer and more difficult to attract, looking towards a wider age range becomes more and more common. Older men tend to be more advantaged over younger men, and younger women tend to be more advantaged over older women, so, as things continue, expect more older men to date significantly younger women, forcing men of similar age to look downwards in the same way.

    Why liz is this a story and where are the parents.. you see the hypocrisy in our society.. if this was some ordinary guy dating a 12 year old.. you Liz Carter would find it horrendous and the guy would be rightfully called a pedophile.. but because he is a celebrity, you actually took time to write and to glamorize this awful perversion.. so maybe the next time you decide to write an article, try writing about something that actually makes sense and is socially repulsive. By the way the parents ought to be locked up as well.. and for those idiots like Ty that think this is real love.. it will also be real love when those inmates try to love him as well..

    ….Nature rules, a 12 year old girl starts her ‘monthly period’ she can get pregnant at 12 yrs old, this is nature, nature is perfect, nature is correct, man’s law of age of consent in sex is mans law, in reality, mans law is totally invalid! You can’t argue with nature.

    In modern times, young girls this age are immature, because we make them that way, we condition them this way, if you look in the Arab world, children marry early, like 8 or 9 years old, they become very mature by the age of 16, they are far superior in relationship with a man, than any Western female, they give birth at 13 yrs old, they learn young, at being a woman. I have a 4 yr old daughter, if she falls in love at 12, and is truly in love, then I accept.

    Thousands of years ago, this was common in every country, as time passed, laws came in, as they always do in our evolution, they become ever increasing, some for the better, some for the worse, I stand for in a girl getting married at 12 yrs old, I absolutely see no problem in this, if both in love, why not?! Forced marriage is wrong, I agree on that one.

      Why should child become mature earlier just so dirty old men can have some younger meat. And no matter what you say, experience is not something that can be learned over night. A 12 year old can never be as mature as a 20 year old because she simply hasn’t lived as long.

      Encouraging girls to marry young is very selfish and shallow on the man’s behalf when all they have to do is wait or find someone their own age. Arab men want young girls for wives so they can control them, but thats not love and thats no life. Not to mention its dangerous many 9 year old Arab wives have died from internal bleeding as a result of their old husbands violently forcing their giant dicks into their tiny little holes. Its not right psychologically or physically. If young girls want to explore sex then let if be with boys their own age. You old farts can keep your wrinkly old dicks to yourselves.

      You’re disgusting and I truly feel sorry for your child. And why stop at 12? If you have such a low sense of morality you might as well give your daughter away now so she can die from her husbands big old penis sooner.

    Wow the public opinion was seriously fucked up…they’re more worried about why they aren’t married then the fact that this 24 year old man is lusting after a kid. How vapid can they really be?

    If you look at pictures of this girl, she’s so small, she looks like a little child and yet she’s being sexualised. I think that because she has pictures of her with makeup on some people get it in their heads that its somehow okay. Also, the guy involved is counting down the days until he can have sex with her (if he hasn’t already in secret). After all, these two started dating when she was 11 who what morality does he really have to hold back? Its very selfish to take an innocent child and sexualise them. You’re basically taking away their innocence just for your own sick pleasure, and that’s why pedophillia is so wrong. You’re supposed to PROTECT children, not use them up and spit them out for selfish sexual gratification. If you use a child like that, you’re going to fuck them up mentally. Unless you don’t care about that child’s whole life then… that says more about what a horrible person you are.

    I can’t understand how numbers of supporters don’t see anything wrong with the relationship. I just assumed that everyone had a natural instinct to protect children, but I guess some people don’t have that. Lately pop culture been glorify the sexualisation of young girls (and boys). Therefore young people get used to the idea and think it is acceptable behaviour. Just be very careful of brainwashing via pop culture, because others can manipulate you to think anything that want by making it look ‘cool’. I know that 12 year old girls fantasise about older guys and I did too, but thinking back to being 12 I was just lucky that nobody took advantage of my vulnerability.

    If he was a normal guy then he should be in a completely different stage of his life. A normal 24 year old man would find no shortage to appropriately aged women to bone so why would he even need to target a child unless he was a loser? There is obviously something messed up with this guy. He probably has a 1 inch dick or some sort of mental dysfunction otherwise why can’t he actually get a woman? What makes me mad is that he has supporters. I think his supporters look at him as being not that old or ugly, so therefore its okay for him to do this. But this notion is dangerously superficial. I would not be surprised that when the girl becomes an adult, the guy will lose his attraction and go back to targeting younger girls. Hopefully by then he’ll look so old that his supporters will wake up and call him out for being the pedo that he is.

    This isn’t a love story; its perverted lust. It is as shallow as that. What can a 24 year old man have in common with a 12 year old girl??? Its not like she can go out clubbing and binge drinking with him and his friends. Its not like he’s interested in tween slumber parties or obsessing about Twilight or whatever.

    And sure, I bet the girl is completely fine with everything. Its typical for a 12 year old to think they know everything. When it comes to actually dealing with a bad situation, however, the child will not be able to cope. You’re an irresponsible fool if you actually believe that the child in this situation can handle herself like an adult. Young girls have been gang-raped because they thought they could handle hanging out with a group of older boys but they were tricked.
