I understand that social pressures are different in China than they are in North America. How, though, was the wife "forced" to commit suicide?

If "fearless leader" could drum the cultural revolution into their narrow Chinese minds during the 60's (which made them even narrower), why can't today's "fearless leader" get them to discard outdate cultural ideas?

Socially and culturally, China is really, really, really backwards compared to more civilized countries, and primitive notions abound after 60 years of the abusive CCP regime and its never-ending hate campaigns against this group or that class, etc..

Homophobia is rampant, and crude racist remarks are often made loudly in public when minorities or foreigners are around.

She probably manipulated him for years by threatening exposure, and went bananas when he outed himself which suddenly exposed her to criticism and the truth to all.

Pretty sad.
