China’s gender imbalance

We’ve all heard about China’s one child policy and how it’s resulted in an imbalance beween the sexes because male babies are valued more there than female babies (because men are awesome.) I happened to be surfing around the worldlifeexpectancy.com web site and was interested to see some of the numbers of this problem explained.

The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences predicts that in the year 2020, China will have as many as 40,000,000 more men than women under the age of 20.

In 1978, China instituted its one child policy to address its massive overpopulation problem, and since that time, as many as 400,000,000 abortions have taken place. With Chinese parents’ strong traditional preference for boys, it’s not surprising that the vast majority of them were destined to be little girls. In some parts of China, the ratio can be as high as 130-100 boys to girls today.

The abortion problem is just the beginning. In a society where girls are devalued, it’s no surprise that China has the highest female suicide rate in the World. Forced abortion traumatizes women and by some estimates from the WHO, as many as 500 Chinese women commit suicide every day, nostly in the rural provinces. We could speak at length about what might happen when little boys become big boys with too much time on their hands, but most of the behavior is obvious and is already taking place. Human Trafficking and Sexual Slavery are on the rise in China, but that’s just the beginning. The evidence is equally clear there is increased violence almost everywhere an imbalance between the sexes, on this scale, has been allowed to occur.

I predict that in 2040, China will be the sexbot capital of the world.

India, according to the same link, has similar problems (which might partly explain the gang rape attacks in India that have made the news lately.)
