Boys and Girls! I.
This is coolbert:
From my previous blog entry:
"The excess number of women is no longer the case in China. NOW, it is the opposite. There is a super-abundance of young, foot-loose, unattached, unmarried men in China that CANNOT find suitable mates."
A GENDER IMBALACE THAT MAY LEAD TO POLITICAL UPHEAVAL, REBELLION, DOWRIGHT WARFARE BY A COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT FOR WHICH THINGS WILL SPIRAL OUT OF CONTROL!!??
Here are some web sites that detail the problem:
"Gender imbalance threatens China"
"China is set to become the world's largest lonely hearts club in coming decades, with some 23 million men of marriageable age unable to find a female partner, an international population conference has heard."
NO! NOT BECOMING SO, IS SO!!
"Excess men have previously led to political upheaval in China"
"The prospect of millions of men forced to go solo threatens major social and political problems for the tightly controlled country of 1.3 billion people, the most populous nation on the planet"
"According to the research, men who do not marry are more prone to crime than if they were married, raising fears of social and political instability."
"Instead they suggested the most probable scenario was that excess single men "will settle in bachelor ghettos in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou and Tianjin where commercial sex outlets would be prevalent'."
It should be understood that the problem cannot be resolved just by allowing for release of sexual urges and impulses through the use of prostitutes. The problem here is a lack of stability normally a result of a strong family structure. The nuclear family with the husband, wife, children, living in a stable, civil society, will not be obtainable for these tens of millions of young men.
"Previous gender imbalances in China have led to major political upheaval. In the 19th century, the Nien rebellion in northern Shandong province was in part blamed on an excess male population, estimated at 100,000, that was caused by an earlier famine and widespread female infanticide, the researchers said. It took the ruling Qing dynasty 17 years to overthrow the rebels who ruled the region of six million people."
The above is a blog entry from a recent "China hand" who feels the problem is not so acute. A problem that exists, but is overblown.
"Asia's Male Tilt"
"This year, millions of young men in China and India will reach their 19th birthday with little prospect of finding a wife. It's not that young, single women aren't available - it's that they don't exist in the same numbers."
China, right now, is the most populous nation [1.3 billion Chinese] on the planet. India, however, is not that far behind and sometime in this century will surpass China as the most populous nation. India too has the tradition of favoring boy offspring over girls. India too has the gender imbalance problem?
