Posted on 08/04/2009 5:48:10 AM PDT by markomalley
Prostitutes are considered more trustworthy in China than government officials and scientists, a recent survey of more than 3,000 respondents showed. The online survey of 3,376 Chinese showed that 7.9 percent of respondents considered sex workers trustworthy, putting them in third place after farmers and religious workers, the Insight China magazine said on its website.
"A list like this is at the same time surprising and embarrassing," the China Daily said Tuesday in an editorial, commenting on the result of the survey, which was carried out in June and July.
"The sex workers' unexpected prominence on this list of honour... is indeed unusual."
The newspaper said the list showed scientists and teachers ranked "way below, and that government functionaries, too, scored hardly better."
Soldiers and students were ranked after sex workers on the list of trustworthy professions, the Insight China magazine said.

I was thinking they should run the same survey here in the US.
China really is getting Westernized. Blame Nixon.
I’d say prostitutes would rate higher than any member of Congress, if this survey was run here.
After all, when a John pays a prostitute, he gets an actual service in return.
In contrast, a Congressmonkey gets paid a boatload of money and they don’t even read the bloody bills they pass.
“I think I’d rate prostitutes as more trustworthy than politicians in this country as well.”
1. they fulfill the same function at a much lower price.
2. Their rhetoric that they give you while performing their function, ie. “OOOO Baby, you so good. It’s so good when you give it to me.” is more believeable.
3. The bad things they give you can usually be cured cheaply and quickly.
If Chinese “religious workers” are anything like ours, they should be ranked right down there with “elected officials.”
“It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first.” - Ronald Reagan
It’s the same in the US.
you’re actually paying for her to go away...if only we could pay Congresscritters to go away.
At least the prostitutes, unlike the politicians, admit that they are whores.
