Tu Er Shen
AKA: The Leverent Spirit
Tu Er Shen’s name literally translates into “Rabbit Deity”. And, while not very well known, he has quite a story that seems strange to the Western World.
Long ago in China (like 17th century China), there lived a solider named Hu Tianbao who fell in love with an Imperial Inspector that was in charge of the providence he was stationed in. One day Hu Tianbao got caught sneaking peeks on the naked Inspector through a bathroom wall.
The angry Inspector demanded why Hu was peeping. Rather reluctantly, Hu told the Inspector that he had a crush on him. Unfortunately for Hu, the Inspector didn’t return his feelings. Instead he had poor Hu sentenced to death by beating.
The story does not end there folks! Soon after his death, an old farmer from Hu’s hometown had a dream in which Hu appeared to him and told him that the God of the Underworld had made him the Rabbit God and that he must build a temple in the town for homosexual males to pray to him, as he was now a deity to answer their prayers.
What’s so strange about him?
Well, as I mentioned, from a modern Western perspective, an idea of a homosexual deity who prayed to by homosexual males would seem pretty strange.
Another thing, men looking for match with another man should make sure to go to Tu Er Shen, since if they go to the regular matchmaker deity, Yue Xia Lao Ren, he’ll be confused by a man asking for a another man and match him with a woman instead.
Tu Er Shen is also a very hard working deity, if you choose to believe and pray to him they say he’ll work earnest and hard to assist you. And he would prefer to be referred to as Ta Yeh (“master”). I’ve read that he’s not only for gay men but also for lesbians.
One more thing! I was told by a friend of mine, that the word “rabbit” was used as not-so-nice slang for gay men in China. So that might explain why he was the Rabbit God.

Here’s to book seven. Here’s to the years of anticipation before it and the years of discussion in its wake. Here’s to the boy who lived and how he changed everything.
And here’s to you, if you know that “the very end” isn’t happening anytime soon.

Guys, please I need your help. I know this isn’t Disneyland or DisneyWorld. It’s my dream college. I want to go to FIlm school, I want to become a director and it’s been my dream to become one. I have so much passion for film making It’s ridiculous. My dream college is over 1,101 miles away from where I live. At first my mother and I were not on the same perspective. She thought I was crazy and would never make it. However, the college called me and found interest in what I can do! I knew that was my chance, so I spoke to my mother again, and unfortunately she hardly agreed this time either. Then I thought of Tumblr, we got a kid to go to DIsneyland, and heck we got a girl a bird! So why not college? If this can get to over 100k notes she says she’ll get one step closer in letting me attend my dream college! I know this might be asking a lot but please help me show my mom that I can make it and chase after my dreams! One reblog can help so much! xxPlease signal boost this everybody!
It takes two seconds, why wouldn’t I help you?
