Some Chinese men have commented on independent women, labeling some as 'bossy' and 'masculine. The opinion that "left-over" women are not married because of their 'strong personalities' is also starting to gain steam.

The standard view of submissive women being more desirable has changed over the years. Nowadays, the social status of women is comparable to that of men.
