If they're unable to spawn, that would help acheive the goals of the 1-child policy, wouldn't it?

24 million sexually-frustrated young men? What could possibly go wrong?

It is the fault of the Chinese cultural desire to have a son, not the one child policy.

give me doughnuts: It is the fault of the Chinese cultural desire to have a son, not the one child policy.

but without the one child policy, they could have kept that first girl and not aborted her, thrown her down the well, or sent her to the US because they wanted their one child to be a boy. that way china would have women to match up with the men.

Bad. 24 million men with no hope of creating a family or future for them. Where do you think so many suicide bombers come from? 2nd son of a second son, no inheritance of their own, no wife, no reason to live.

24 million single Chinese men = one hell of an army that wants to go claim themselves a future.

I guess there's going to be a lot of gay porn being exported from China.

Men have been having multiple wives for ages, now it's finally the ladies' turn.

Remind me never to go to China.

Instead, go to Japan. And dress as something cute.

/well, I hear just being a white guy has it's perks at times...
//which is even MORE reason to go to Japan

The price to pay will be high, that's for sure.

Oh wait... You said *young* men. Doesn't apply to me.

From someplace other than China.

After you have sex with a Chinese girl, you just want another one 30 minutes later.

It's the interaction of the two.

Except it isn't the poor that generally become suicide bombers.

China is actually a pretty interesting place. To me, much more so than Japan--a modern city looks an awful lot like a modern city, there's not really much to distinguish them beyond the language.

China, however, is still growing into being a modern society and the result is a lot more variation in what you see.

Anyway, being a westerner makes you a target of the girls in China anyway--they're hoping to marry and come to America. It's widespread enough that I've gotten subtle hints from women 15-20 years my junior and with my wife right there.

That's only because 30 minutes after having sex with one, you want to have sex again.

I can't tell you. It's an ancient Chinese secret.

So does this mean that China is going to war with radical Islam?
 
2010-01-11 09:46:45 PM  
Weird. I thought that the Chinese brought in a rule that Families could have 2 kids if the first child is a female.

Checks wiki.. Wikipedia One Child Policy (new window)

In most rural areas, families are allowed to apply to have a second child if the first is a girl

Yep.

And 2 minutes, 35 seconds after telling that cliche joke, it's just as not funny as the first time.

The implied 24 million infants who were murdered for the crime of being female makes me teh sad.

FTFA: "Sex-specific abortions remained extremely commonplace, especially in rural areas," where the cultural preference for boys over girls is strongest, the study said, noting the reasons for the gender imbalance were "complex" ignorant rural people.

Is there anyone out there that is actually surprised by this? Think of the status symbol of having a wife there.

It is a little mind boggling to think of the scale and scope of this situation though.

I think at least 24 million of them were adopted by unmarried white women where I live. Don't fret.

Do abortions in the US make you sad too?

That's a pretty big army of disposable people, with a limited shelf life.

Did you know this situation was presented as a "Bilderberg Group" conspiracy theory 20 or so years ago to thin world population?

Just like Weather Control (new window)?

Just watching history.
