“经适男”是“经济适用男”的简称。经适男 [jīng shì nán] is short for 经济适用男 [jīng jì shì yòng nán]. Means ‘budget husband’.
经济 [jīng jì] – economy / economic适用 [shì yòng] – applicable / suitable / appropriate男 [nán] – male / man
“经济适用男”的说法来自“经济适用房”,也就是政府为低收入家庭出资提供的公共性住房。相对地,“经济适用男”指的就是那些虽然没有太多钱,但却现实、稳定、适合结婚的男性了。
The expression 经济适用男 [jīng jì shì yòng nán] comes from 经济适用房 [jīng jì shì yòng fáng] (affordable housing), which are the apartments Chinese government subsidized for the low-income families. Accordingly, 经济适用男 [jīng jì shì yòng nán] refers to the men who re not so rich, but appropriate and realistic for marriage.
作为发展中国家的中国,近些年在大面积城市化的过程中,出现了大批量的剩女,也就是人们常常说的“三高女”——高学历、高收入、高龄。在中国人的传统观念中,男人应该是家庭的顶梁柱,所以男人普遍更愿意娶学历、收入、年龄比自己低一等的女孩,“三高女”普遍单身的原因也就显而易见了。时过境迁,由于剩女的数量激增,中国女性也不再争着要“钓金龟婿”(嫁给有钱人),他们的择偶目标渐渐地转向了“经适男”。
As a developing country, China is going through the mass urbanization. During the process many ‘leftover woman’ (woman who are old enough to be married but not yet married) appeared. They are usually called ‘3-high ladies’ – high educational level, high income, old (in Chinese, ‘high age’). In Chinese traditional ideas, man should be the main support of a family. Thus, most men would prefer to marry girls who are less educated, younger and who earn less money then themselves. It’s obvious why many ‘3-high ladies’ are left over. However, overtime things are changing. Most Chinese woman would rather choose  经适男 [jīng shì nán] (budget husband) over 金龟婿 [jīn guī xù] (rich husband) nowadays.
“经适男”虽然不是太富裕,却是实力派,有稳定的工作和收入。相貌虽然不出众,但也不丑陋。典型的“经济适用男”一般是工科出身,从事IT类、工程类、教育类的职业,性格比较踏实保守,有家庭责任感,不会在外面花天酒地、吃喝嫖赌、找小三。他们通常一直是身边人眼中的好儿子、好丈夫、好爸爸。用这几年很流行的一个词来说就是——靠谱!
Although budget husbands are not so rich, they are the real thing – they have stable jobs and income. They are neither handsome nor ugly. Typical budget husbands work in the field of IT, engineering, education, etc. They are relatively conservative, practical and responsible. They wouldn’t go out to fuck around or look for mistresses. Most budget husbands have always been good sons, good husbands and good daddies in other people’s eyes. To describe them with a popular Chinese word – they are Kaopuable! (reliable, trustworthy)
随着“经适男”渐渐开始变得抢手,不少网友也开始纷纷讨论:怎样的女生才能讨得“经适男”的欢心呢?总体看来,“经适男”普遍喜欢简单清爽、没有太多感情经历、懂得持家、知书达理、不抽烟、不喝酒、不拜金、以结婚为目的谈恋爱的女孩。如果你想要找个中国的“经适男”当老公,可不要随便和他玩爱情游戏哦!
As budget husbands are becoming more and more popular in China, netizens are discussing: how to catch budget husbands’ eyes? Roughly, budget husbands prefer girls who are simple, fresh, understandable, non-smoker or drinker, not mammonish and not too experienced in relationships. Girls who have relationships only for the sake of marriage are always better for them. If you want to marry a Chinese budget husband, you’d better not play too many love games with him!

Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. 
If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!

Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoBLolqUaNg 

Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman?
No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?

(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)

Un-fucking-acceptable.
