It may interest you to know, Subby, that despite the fact that they both have dark hair and kinda slanty eyes and are shorter than normal 'Merican people, China and Japan are actually two completely separate countries. Not only that, they have completely different cultures, languages, forms of government, economies, and everything.

Who knew, huh?

Article is about the whole of Asia, including "India, where ... sex selection has become so intense that by 2020 an estimated 15 to 20 percent of men in northwest India will lack female counterparts."

Admittedly, Japan isn't part of the problem here. But if you don't think the rest of Asia, including Japan, isn't concerned as hell about possible unrest among 10-20% of all males in China and India (who have a combined population of almost half the world), you're wrong.

//resents your patronizing attitude and assumption of racism
///would have gone for a different country in Asia had one of them worked better as play on "Panic"

A book I've read recently Nothing to Envy doesn't paint the North Korean bride situation nearly as black and white as your link. One of the women interviewed was a doctor who escaped to South Korea via China. Her first exposure to life in China was stumbling across a bowl lying in someone's yard and realizing that Chinese dogs ate better than she did.

How did more than 160 million women go missing from Asia? The simple answer is sex selection -- typically, an ultrasound scan followed by an abortion if the fetus turns out to be female ... Four decades ago, Western advocacy of sex selection yielded tragic results. But if we continue to ignore that legacy and remain paralyzed by heated U.S. abortion politics, we're compounding that mistake. Indian public health activist George, indeed, says waiting to act is no longer an option: If the world does "not see ten years ahead to where we're headed, we're lost."

It turns into a problem for Social Security as well. Who knew killing children could be a bad thing?

I wouldn't worry. There will be plenty of extra Indian men for male Chinese to love and hold.

I was in China for over a month earlier this spring, and had an interesting conversation with a woman in Beijing. She said in the cities amongst her friends who are just having kids the families are actually hoping for a girl over a boy now because by this point if you have a boy you're in for a lot of work (he needs to be well educated and have a great place to ensure he'll have a mate). Girls on the other hand you don't need to work as hard for to put them on easy street.

Mind I have no idea how huge a developing trend this is if at all, but I did find it quite interesting.

Muslims figured this problem out years ago. Have yourselves a good old fashioned war. When the male numbers are depleted, then its 4 women for every man. When there are too many men again, have another war. Rinse, repeat, wash hands.

The problem solves itself if we turn a very large segment of their population gay. Who knew homosexuality could be a good thing?

India is in a very similar gender-imbalance situation. It's why I firmly believe WWIII will be fought between India and China. History teaches that there are only two ways societies have ever dealt with an excess male population: Exploration/pioneering Or warfare. Since there's nowhere left to colonize, that leaves a single, ugly option

The numbers in TFA are obviously more liberal fear mongering from the MSM. Why, just today I received several unsolicited e-mails from quite attractive and unattached Chinese ladies! Clearly, the situation is not nearly as sure as we're being led to believe.

A month ago, there was an incredibly shiatty opinion article about how prenatal testing from the west was "causing" a greater disparity because the girls were being aborted once the parents learned the sex. Horrifying.

Every household requires one man, plus as many women as possible.

No real man would create a family unit with more than one man. Plus, women are subservient, and they couldn't be the head of household with several husbands.
