What's Chinese for "NIMBY"?

I've never been a huge fan of amusement parks (I'm scared shitless of roller coasters), but maybe that's because I've never been to one like this:

The park manager, Lu Xiaoqing, had planned to have on hand naked human sculptures, giant models of genitals, sex technique 'workshops' and a photography exhibition about the history of sex, according to China Daily. The displays would have included lessons on safe sex and the proper use of condoms.

Mr. Lu told China Daily that the park was being built 'for the good of the public.' Love Land would be useful for sex education, he said, and help adults 'enjoy a harmonious sex life.'
Unfortunately for Mr. Lu, the local folks were just as squeamish about a sex theme park in their back yard as their American counterparts would be. The Government shut it down before it even opened, but not before half of an oversized female mannequin (the bottom half) was erected, complete with red G-string!
