Cutting a long story short, HK billionaire Cecil Chao Sze-tsung has offered a $65 million dollar bounty on the lesbianism of his 33-year-old daughter, Gigi Chao. Ms. Chao reportedly recently married her girlfriend of seven years in France. This confused and inspired Mr. Chao to offer the reward to any man, rich or poor (so egalitarian) who can win her heart. Chao says “The important thing is that he is generous and kind-hearted.” And not a woman.
The story is all over the internets so I am not going to go into the details of it here. Instead I offer you the same scenario with some orientation changes.
Gay Hong Kong billionaire Mr. Jones has offered $65 million dollars to any man who can win the heart of his straight son. Confused by the announcement of his cissexual sons upcoming nuptials, Mr. Jones believes the right man, one who is “generous and kind hearted” will be able to woo his son away from his fiancée.
This version probably won’t get as much support from the Ex-gay movement.
Apparently, Ms. Chao thinks it’s a charming gesture. Seriously. Perhaps she picks her battles. And having your billionaire father put you on a $65 million dating game after you get married just isn’t one of them.
