In 1995, an educator and columnist for the Sichuan Daily newspaper described a scene that took place in a city in southwest China. A crowd was watching a woman in her thirties half-carrying and half-dragging a small boy from a public playground. The woman was twisting the boy’s ear with one hand, hitting him with the other, and shouting that her son “had brought her nothing but shame.”
