Personal life[edit]

I deleted some of the text from the personal life section as they made claims without any citation. I left a couple of sentences in this section in place, but they also need citation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Davidreid (talkcontribs) 03:54, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Took this a step further and deleted entire "personal life" section Twyn3161 (talk) 07:49, 6 January 2012 (UTC)

Personal life changes[edit]

I re-worded the existing sentence. User:Kiwidude made an edit saying that Ms. Tsai said she was not gay, however, in the source that is cited that is not what she said. Rather, she refuses to answer the question, saying instead, that there is nothing wrong with any marital status or sexual orientation. Also, a citation is needed on the claim she was born into a wealthy family. Might be true but there are no supporting references listed. --Webbyj (talk) 05:09, 31 December 2011 (UTC)

Christian?[edit]

Is there any citation that she is a Christian, as the category indicates? – Kaihsu (talk) 16:04, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, some comment on her religious belief (if any) would be nice. 92.0.147.209 (talk) 12:51, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Political Stances?[edit]

This article covers her background and her rise in politics, but it doesn't actually do much (if anything) to cover her political beliefs themselves. What are her stances on Taiwanese-Chinese relationships? What about economic policy? What about social policy? These would be nice things to add to flesh out her article, which as it stands is rather short and uninformative. 163.29.35.147 (talk) 01:47, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

^Couldn't agree more! This article is shit! ~~
Came here to say this. This article's quality is totally inappropriate for a president. Currently the only section about her political positions is the "Views on LGBT issues" section which is imo of disputable importance. What about her visions for domestic and foreign policy etc.? --Fixuture (talk) 19:44, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
I made an attempt at fixing this glaring problem by translating parts of the Chinese articel, but would welcome any sources online in either English and Chinese that summarize her political views. Colipon+(Talk) 20:29, 22 January 2016 (UTC)

Second Female Head-of-State in East Asia with No Other Qualifiers?[edit]

If the article had said the second female head-of-state in a republican mold or in the more modern era, it may have been accurate. But, without such qualifiers, these particular women (not necessarily and exclusive list, but just ones I've found) somewhat challenge that tile (I'll link the existing Wikipedia articles for them as they stand so I can show they're there: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Zetian https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Genmei https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Gensh%C5%8D https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_K%C5%8Dken https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Meish%C5%8D https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Go-Sakuramachi

I just thought this might be something to consider. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zamarana (talkcontribs) 21:51, 11 February 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 1 March 2016[edit]

Please remove the sentence "She will become the second female head of state in East Asia after current President of South Korea Park Geun-hye" because the article is aiming to promote awareness of a president of another country that is irrelevant to the article about President Tsai. 206.116.28.46 (talk) 00:11, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: I think the point it wants to emphasize is that she is the second female head of state in East Asia --allthefoxes (Talk) 04:21, 1 March 2016 (UTC)

But, as I pointed out above, she's not the second female "head-of-state" in East Asia, only the second female "president of a nation." An empress regnant, of which I've listed six from East Asian history, is, by definition, as much a "head-of-state" as a national president. - Zamarana
