Ma de in China: “fuck” in China

Ma de is the Romanization for 妈的 (mā de), which literally means “mother’s” and is short for “fuck your mother" (他妈的 The term is roughly equivalent to "damn," or "fuck” in English.

Ma de in China is used by netizens to express disgust at something the Chinese government has done. For example someone may post a comment on their microblog that a certain website has been blocked, and someone will respond in the comment section, “Ma de in China!.” Or someone will say sarcastically that the SB Conference (World Expo) was “Ma de in China!”
