Female hypoagency. The demonization of male sexuality. Paedohysteria. Misandry. The false rape accusation epidemics. Victimeless crimes. The age-of-consent scam. Seventeen year-old "children". The sexual trade-union. Youthism. Children as a mean of extortion. Male disposability.

A frequency approach can be very powerful, especially if applied to characters (as opposed to words). Isn't that the strenght of the HSK system (in spite of its stiltedness?). It prevents you from wasting time looking at a character you won't be seeing again for years.

I doubt it. The word comes up in an episode of the "Lao Wang" series. Chinese dictionaries make a dog's breakfast of the verb/noun dichotomy. Maybe this kind of phrase deserves some future remarks. How about a QingWen about how to say "regarding", "wrt", "about", "concerning" in mandarin?

I'm wondering what the "上" stands for in "人脉上差一点". I guess it means "regarding", "with respect to". But then I would expect some word like "有" to come in between (人脉上有差一点).
