China has “dancing grannies” and “stun guns”



All over China, middle-aged and older women gather early in the morning or late in the afternoon in parks and public places to dance together to Chinese music. Known as the “dancing grannies”, these women come together to play loud music and dance to celebrate their “cultural revolution”. But this unison has now become a problem for the locals, who complain that their music is “too loud”.

Although this tradition has led to alarming dead ends, locals complain online and offline about “dancing grannies” playing very loud music, but many are too scared to face them.

To tackle the noise problem, locals are now finding their own ways to silence them as one of them came up with a technological solution: a remote stun gun-like device that can mute a loudspeaker at a distance. 50 meters away.

Speaking of the device, a local said on one of them on Taobao, the Chinese version of eBay, “Downstairs, it’s finally quiet. For two days, the grannies thought their speaker did not work!” The Guardian quoted.

Reviewing the products, readers said it was a “social justice” product to help people become the “boss of the neighborhood”.

In China, there are nearly 100 million grannies who dance, meet, socialize through square dancing, form strong bonds and engage in group activities, such as shopping, group investing, the South China Morning Post reported.

Dancing Grannies claim this is the most unpopular, fun, and harmless way to socialize, as many of them live alone in big cities.

They complain that these gangs are getting out of hand, as reports say dancing grannies have also been spotted fighting with youngsters playing on basketball or soccer fields in space.

Meanwhile, state media describe the activities of the dancing grannies as “a positive and effective way to reduce medical and financial burden as well as improve the quality of life for the elderly.”
