Cecil Chao Sze-tsung, the Hong Kong Billionaire who “crazily” offered to “any” man who could win his daughter’s heart and marry her, is currently trending worldwide. According to some researches, her daughter, Gigi Chao told the reporters that she will only marry a “man” when her father does.
Gigi was already married to her long time partner named Sean Eav since 2012 in France but her father still claimed that his daughter is still “single” so many men from different parts of the world tried to pursue her–they are reportedly US war veterans, a man from Ethiopia, another from Portugal, Istanbul, and South America. Their numbers even reached to 20,000!
Because of her sexual orientation, her father couldn’t accept this reality. Gigi even asks her father not to be afraid of her partner Sean and their relationship and treat her like a human being with utmost respect.
But despite of this crazy offer made by her father, she stated that she still respects and love him. She even made this open letter so that her father and even the whole world, will understand what was her stand regarding this viral proposal. Here it goes:
I thought the timing was right for us to have a candid conversation.
You are one of the most mentally astute, energetic yet well mannered and hard-working people this humble earth has ever known.
Your confidence, quick wit, and charisma brightens any room you enter.
I love you very much, and I think I can speak for my brothers also, that we have the utmost respect for you as a father and role model in business.
I am sorry that people have been saying insensitive things about you lately. The truth is, they don’t understand that I will always forgive you for thinking the way you do, because I know you think you are acting in my best interests. And we both don’t care if anybody else understands.
As your daughter, I would want nothing more than to make you happy. But in terms of relationships, your expectations of me and the reality of who I am, are not coherent.
I am responsible for some of this misplaced expectation, because I must have misled you to hope there were other options for me. You know I’ve had male lovers in the past, and I’ve had happy, albeit short-lived, relationships. I found myself temporarily happy, buoyed by the freshness, the attention, the interest, of someone physically stronger than myself.
But it was always short-lived, as I quickly lost patience, and felt an indescribable discomfort in their presence. It usually made me frustrated, and I would yearn for my freedom again. I’ve broken a few hearts, hearts of good, honest and loving men, and I’m sorry that it had to be so.
But with Sean, a woman, somehow it was different. I am comfortable and satisfied with my life and completely at ease with her. I know it’s difficult for you to understand how I could feel romantically attracted to a woman; I suppose I can’t really explain it either. It just happens, peacefully and gently, and after so many years, we still love each other very much.
My regret is that you have no idea how happy I am with my life, and there are aspects of my life that you don’t share. I suppose we don’t need each other’s approval for our romantic relationships, and I am sure your relationships are really fantastic too.
However, I do love my partner Sean, who does a good job of looking after me, ensuring I am fed, bathed and warm enough every day, and generally cheering me up to be a happy, jolly girl. She is a large part of my life, and I am a better person because of her.
Now, I’m not asking you to be best of friends; however, it would mean the world to me if you could just not be so terrified of her, and treat her like a normal, dignified human being.
I understand it is difficult for you to understand, let alone accept this truth.
I’ve spent a lot of time figuring out who I am, what is important in my life, who I love and how best to live life, as an expression of all these questions. I am proud of my life, and I would not choose to live it any other way (except also figuring out how to be gentler on the planet).
I’m sorry to mislead you to think I was only in a lesbian relationship because there was a shortage of good, suitable men in Hong Kong.
There are plenty of good men, they are just not for me.
Wishing you happiness.
Your daughter, Gigi.
Indeed, the word “love” has thousands of meaning and it’s still unfathomable for many. Love knows no identity, social status, color, political belief, gender, race, and others. It comes in unexpected time and space. And most especially, it cannot be measured by any means, even billions of dollars.
