I slipped my chopsticks out of their paper wrapper and then broke the top portion
apart. I had heard that ]apanese men twitch with pleasure every time they snap
the sticks open. New chopsticks are said to be like young virgins; the snap
symbolizes their deflowering. What I didn't know then, but would discover years
later, was that there are approximately fifty different types of chopsticks in ]apan,
made of wood, bamboo, ivory, bone, and various metals, and that numerous dos
and don'ts ...

Through an ethnographic study of the Lahu people of southwest China, I will
explore in this book how gender equality has become a by-product of the
worldview of gender unity, which is vividly expressed by the proverb "Chopsticks
only work in pairs." According to this worldview, it is only right and natural that
men and women, who are expected to unify in husband-wife teams, take joint
roles as much as possible in all areas, including pregnancy, childbirth, childcare,
domestic chores, ...

Sea and Sun WHEN TRYING TO eat a fried eg with chopsticks, it is vital to ensure
that the egg is well cooked. A hard-yolked egg is a solid enough object,
something you can easily pincer and grip. If, on the other hand, you opt for a
lightly cooked, oildrizzled sunny-side-up version, all kinds of trouble ensues. I sat
at breakfast the next morning and considered the conundrum. I had thought it
would be a good idea to fuel up with something nutritious before embarking on
the next leg of my ...

I got the idea for The Story of Chopsticks by watching my young son eat with his
chopsticks. Chopsticks originated in China, perhaps as early as the 11th century
BCE. They are called “Kùai zi” (pronounced KHWY-zzuh) in Mandarin, which
translates to “quick ones.” In the pidgin English used by Chinese and European
traders of old, “chop” meant “quick.” Thus “quick sticks” became “chopsticks,”
which are frequently made of unadorned wood, bamboo, and plastic. Some are

Virtually no one in the village would attend her funeral, and I asked her husband
what he felt about this. 'You can't blame them,' he said, without a trace of rancour.
'They don't want her bad luck to rub off on them. Besides, it's her fault that she
only managed to give birth to a handful of chopsticks and no roof-beam.' I was
struck by this way of referring to girls and boys. I had never heard it before, but it
seemed to epitomise the manner in which the Chinese view the differences
between ...
