McDonald’s + Goddess = McGoddess

I copied and pasted this article from MSN and they got it from The International Business Times (IBT).

Taiwan: Men are flocking to McDonald’s for a glimpse of ‘McGoddess’

Say hello to Wei Han Xu. She is an employee at McDonald’s in Taiwan. And is currently breaking the internet. Want to know why?

It’s apparently because of her doll-like features. Men are flocking to this McDonald’s location merely to get a glimpse of “McGoddess”, as she is now called.

The internet’s fascination with her exploded after RainDog, a blogger, uploaded her pictures. Almost immediately, they were re-posted on Facebook and other social media, winning her thousands of followers on Instagram and invitations to talk shows.

Some of Wei’s fans are travelling from far-flung places just to click selfies and take videos with her. She has kept the game up, donning varied costumes to keep them happy. McDonald’s managers in Taiwan often encourage their female employees to dress as maids, cheerleaders and sailors, Daily News reports.

Wei is only a part-time employee at McDonald’s. She is otherwise a college student who also models.

From the feedback that I received from my poll, readers wanted to see more “Fun Stuff/News” so this is the reason why I’m posting this at all.  I’m against female objectification.  Here’s why:

  • If you’re only focused on superficial qualities, then you’re not focused on other qualities that make people whole
  • If superficial characteristics are the most important characteristics, the risk of developing eating disorders and self-image and self-esteem issues rise greatly

I believe everyone is attractive, so let’s put that aside and focus our attentions on more important issues, such as domestic violence, having sustainable resources, and equality for all.

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
