    China To Be Short 24M Wives, Study Says

    Shortage May Lead To Increased Crime, Study Warns


    Unfortunately the same thing has been happening in India for decades as well. :angryfire2: I get that there are vast cultural differences involved but still . . . I just can't fathom killing a healthy fetus because it's the wrong sex. :eek::mad: A healthy baby, is a healthy baby.

    I know people who have adopted Chinese girls and you almost NEVER get a newborn. You get a beautiful, healthy baby who is already or almost walking. Chinese adoption agencies make you jump through incredible hoops and pay exorbitant sums of money. They who throw away and murder their infant girls have the audacity to make people who just want a healthy baby walk a tightrope w/o a net. It's ridiculous and hypocritical. :angryfire2: :irked:

    This shortage of women of marrying age in China was predicted many years ago when the gender birth rate first became skewed. Back then one of the theories is it would lead to an increase in homosexuality since so many men wouldn't be able to find female partners. I haven't read that lately though.

    That's because homosexuality by circumstance is something one only hears about in prison porn and all-boys boarding school stories. :rolleyes:

    I'm more curious about the statistics relating to an increase in crime. Since when does lack of sex make men steal cars and rob banks? :confused:

    its ok, as they get more westernised, divorce rates will increase.

    its wrong, but China is a machine not a country. State capitalism see's people as materials not humans.

    If i go a day or two without wank i always get more shopping then i paid for.

    "Women civilize men" is a mantra you will hear the neo-cons chant. They feel marriage makes a man behave better than single men do. I have a gay friend who gets absolutely furious over that assertion.

    That's not all it's going to lead to.

    Perhaps the "market value" of girls will increase now that there is a shortage of brides and the infanticide will stop.

    This has been known to be coming ever since they instituted the one child per couple policy and the Chinese authorities basically did nothing to stop it.

    :rofl: That's the biggest load of shit I've heard in years! :mad::eek: If that were true; then married men would never cheat on their wives, beat them up, embezzle money, or otherwise behave badly. :rolleyes: :duh:

    The only reason most married men live longer than single men is because their wives nag them to go to the doctor regularly and make the appointment for them to go. In some cases the wife then drives the husband to the doctor. Single men are perfectly capable of scheduling and going for physicals, they just choose not to do so. :cool:

    I am not too sure if infanticide (in the countryside) will stop, but I have read reports that girls from the countryside had been kidnapped to be sold as wives to city boys.

    However, in the city, the value of the girls has certainly gone up. Many couples in city the do not mind girls at all.

    I am of Chinese descent, speak Chinese and I travel to China often - this is what I gather from the local Chinese.

    I suppose Mao Tzetung was so powerful at that time that no-one could stop him from imposing this policy. In addition, China was pretty desperate in those days - some 30 years ago - to reduce its population. As far as I know, even with this single child policy for some 30 years, the population in China continues to grow.

    All said and done, it is a sad situation.

    This joke told by Mao to Kissinger during discussions in Beijing in February 1973 seems rather ironic in retrospect:

    Chairman Mao Zedong: Do you want our Chinese women? We can give you ten million.
    U.S. National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger: The chairman is improving his offer.
    Mao: We can let them flood your country with disaster and therefore impair your interests. In our country we have too many women, and they have a way of doing things. They give birth to children, and our children are too many."

    Mao later apologized to a female interpreter and the two agreed to remove the comment from the record. The US State Department released documents in February 2008 which brought this comment to light.

    With too many men, and not enough women, the problem could be easily solved.

    All China has to do is recognize and accept gay men. The second they do, there will be a *FABULOUS* stampede over to China!!

    Problem solved. :biggrin1:

    If China is anything like South Korea, I doubt that you will ever read about it. In South Korea, people deny that there are any homosexuals at all in the country. This, despite the fact that the hotel across from where I was staying in Seoul rented rooms by the hour to men who would enter holding hands! Men holding hands in the street in Seoul is perfectly OK, and doesn't mean that there is anything homosexual about them according to local Koreans that I talked to. This again was despite the fact that the men holding hands on the street were in the minority, not the majority. :rolleyes: Denial is not a river in Egypt (but I'm sure it's still a wonderful thing). :biggrin1:
