Fetishization of Lao women. Because we are “valued" for our: 

  • "Exotic" looks.
  • Supposedly traditional values. 
  • Docile and gentle mannerisms.
  • Very good with tasks such as cleaning, child-bearing, etc.
  • Because they think we won’t fight back. 

How can somebody, especially a foreigner (and even a Lao men), even try to understand a Lao woman as if she is a special specimen of an animal? Or how Lao women’s bodies (even Lao children) are used for the sex tourism industry, constantly violated and abused? And how half of tourists and expats that arrive in Laos only came for our women since their “American” ladies, etc. are too “unmanageable” and “newfangled”? Are we merely trophy wives? Your sex dolls? Your punching bags? We are not for sale. We are not for your disgusting fantasies

Team Smashes Own Quantum Teleportation RecordPhysicists at the Université de Genève (UNIGE) have succeeded in teleporting the quantum state of a photon to a crystal over 25 kilometers of optical fiber. The experiment, carried out in the laboratory of Prof. Nicolas Gisin, constitutes a first, and pulverizes the previous record of six kilometers achieved 10 years ago by the same UNIGE team. Passing from light into matter, using teleportation of a photon to a crystal, shows that, in quantum physics, it is not the composition of a particle which is important, but rather its state, since this can exist and persist outside such extreme differences as those which distinguish light from matter. The results obtained by Félix Bussières and his colleagues are reported in the latest edition of Nature Photonics.Quantum physics, and with it the UNIGE, is again being talked about around the world with the Marcel Benoist Prize for 2014 being awarded to Gisin, and the publication of experiments in Nature Photonics. The latest experiments have enabled verifying that the quantum state of a photon can be maintained whilst transporting it into a crystal without the two coming directly into contact. One needs to imagine the crystal as a memory bank for storing the photon’s information; the latter is transferred over these distances using the teleportation effect.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/09/team-smashes-own-quantum-teleportation-record
