it's because of the cultural revolution and part of it was due to other countries trying to colonize China which included Japan when they occupied the majority of the geographical area of China including 'Manchu' in the early 1900s.
Seriously? Does that honestly seem like a legitimate reason to choose a political system in your mind? Studies have shown that men are more attracted to women who wear red, yet the entire world isn't Communist.
I remember thinking the same thing when I watched the Chinese women's volleyball team at the Olympics..
All kidding aside, it's an argument for staying on the socialist road!
Especially since the fall of the Gang of Four and the access to stylish clothes. Of course, the women weren't ALLOWED to pay attention to style before 1976 , so I guess we can't say they WENT communist because of it. When they went communist, everyone wore baggy unisex things. Almost everyone, anyway.
