Living in Cambodia – The Good, The Bad and The Really F*cking Ugly

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Living in Cambodia – The Good, The Bad and The Really F*cking Ugly

Let’s get the fat balding elephant out of the room: many men living in Cambodia are there to abuse children.

Without delving into how insanely problematic it is that EVERYTHING IN ASIA CONTAINS SKIN WHITENING AGENTS, do you have any idea how infuriating it is not to be able to buy shower gel, moisturiser, or even DEODORANT that doesn’t bleach your skin?

You will always be getting sick, being sick, or recovering from being sick. The food will upset your stomach. The water will upset your stomach (yes, even if you only use it to shower and brush your teeth), and you will get infected cuts that turn into life threatening diseases (ask me how I know).

It is very easy for foreigners to find work in Cambodia. If you want to volunteer in exchange for bed and board then there are hundreds of hostels and backpacker bars available for you, and it is also very easy to find work as an English teacher, no questions asked and no qualifications needed.

When I worked in the beach bar, one of our kitchen staff would frequently come into work with black eyes courtesy of her charming and charismatic husband. Some hostel guests once walked in on a different Cambodian man raping his wife in our hostel.

In fact, there are scores of men who have served time for child abuse in the UK, who go on to open ‘orphanages’ in Cambodia, where they rent out the children by the hour to other morally bankrupt sickos.

Of course, as far as The Really F*cking Ugly goes, if you live in a fancy penthouse in the city and surround yourself with other rich expats, you may be able to pretend that these things are not going on all around you (well, aside from the child sexual exploitation – that’s impossible to ignore).

Written by a 20-something man hater! Why do they say '20-something'? Is it because she doesn't know how to count?

Must be! When I went to school, a score was equal to twenty. So, scores would be many 20s.

So, where are these "scores of men who have served time for child abuse in the UK, who go on to open ‘orphanages’ in Cambodia"?
Who let all of this riff-raff into the room?

This sort of thing infuriates me. If you're a man living in Cambodia, you're probably a pedo. I really, honestly, don't know where to start with this.
