China Becoming a Total Sausage Fest

 

China has 32 million more men under age 20 than women under age 20, and that gap is only expected to increase as parents abort female fetuses to have sons. Chinese parents live under strict birth limits.

Therese Hesketh of University College London, who researched the problem, said that the trend could lead to higher crime rates and other social problems. Her study estimated that China has 119 male births for every 100 female births.

China's population-control laws were put into effect in the 1970s, and the Chinese government says the regulations have prevented an additional 400 million births in a population that is already about 1.3 billion.

  Sounds to me like China needs a war  
 
to cull the herd.

  Could be good for China...  
 
lack of women = export of men seeking foreign women.

export of men = export of Chinese culture.

having a girl might soon become a good thing in Chinese culture.

  Man  
 
it must be nice to be a woman in china right now. If your boy friend isn't good to you just tell him there are 32 million other men.

  This is a result  
 
of Chinese beliefs in the male eldest son responsibility to his family.
The son is the retirement plan, he also gets great service but that is the structure of it.
If you are not wealthy a son is a good future or you hope he will be.
But having said that the culture is also adapting to being son less.

China does have a pretty stupid stance on male vs female offspring, my gf and her family went through a lot of shit from her grandma because of her.

However that birth control policy is largely defunct now, I was just in China for 2 years and it seems the government doesn't care if you have 2 kids anymore.

From those pictures, it appears to me that China is suffering from "Beauty And The Beast" syndrome.
Slow-moving beasts, fast-moving beauties.

that is correct, and the other traditional belief is that you are raising your daughter so she can just go off and join another family. It's a waste of resources since she won't stay within the family anyway.

I'm raising my daughter to conquer China.

First china then the world, if she is your daughter.

Some form of Sex Police in China. How can we get a job like that? Watching everybody to make sure they pull out in time. Anyone want to work overtime?

Its actually quite disturbing the methods people will use to try to abort a baby girl.

Good grief! I never imagined anything like that even in a nightmare. To think a government would turn a blind eye to this horror and create conditions where infanticide flourishes, is unthinkable.

I can only wish a painful, slow rotting disease upon such terrible people.

it sounds bad.. but imagine this scenario

I have a wife, and a son.
you have a wife, and a son, you havev another son on the way.

if you're son is going to be born- there will not be enough food for all of the children, and 1 will have to die of starvation.

the rights of hte living are more important that the rights of the unborn..

so wouldnt it be easier for you to have an aborton rather to let my already born son die?

this is why china does what it is doing.

so get off your highhorse and open your eyes, the world sucks and china is doing what it can to make it best for everyone in their country becacuse they dont have enough damn food

so go stuff your face with another cheeseburger

Are the Chinese people much into birth control? I haven't read or heard anything about that.
 
  by: White Albino   04/13/2009 09:27 PM     
  OK, try this one on for size ...  
 
China f#$%ing SUCKS.

They have a totalitarian government that executes people for stealing.

They're filling the air with pollution and their own water with freaky chemicals that are tripling cancer rates near their factories.

They ban religious movements.

They censor the Internets.

They make cheap s#!t full of poison that they export all over the world, killing people and their children and their pets.

Their workers toil for the majority of the day in filthy factories, making a few cents an hour, often sleeping on the factory floor because their next shift starts so soon after their current shift ends.

China is the one single nation that can, by itself, pretty much sum up every horror of modern human existence.

How ya like them apples?

We Americans are doing okay. We have Micheal Jackson and Sponge Bob Squarepants. We don't need any more pollution.

  @ Deeder/Everyone  
 
I'm a SR in high school, so the sad fact is that pretty much my whole life my clothes, toys, tooth brush, television, and probably 60% of the things in my home have been made in, or contain parts made in China. Just this morning I was talking with me ma about my late grandfather. She told me how her whole life her dad wore dress shoes and a suit to work at their family store Bishops in Baltimore every single day. She told me how he would have his shoes resoled two, three, or four times before buying a new pair. He would go to the cobbler in Towson and his shoes would be restitched, heeled, and relined. It cost him $25 in 1970. When he picked them up each shoe would be shined, individually wrapped and boxed ready to be worn again. Once he was home he would take them out and inspect every perfectly lined up stitch. The cobbler had used the exact same holes originally made in the leather. "The man's an artist, Cass. Look at this work, It's almost good as new, and no blisters!" No blisters. I remember that bit perfectly. There was a time when the food on your table was grown here. A time when the manual in your glove box told you how to fix a problem, instead of instructing you to "contact your dealer". A family could run a store and not lose business to the "Chinese Warehouse" across the street. Things were built to last by tradesmen who worked an honest job and got their pension when they retired. Every day there is more outsourcing, and less need for workers who've taken time to learn a skill. Everything today is disposable, it seems. Engineered to be replaced. To be completely honest thoughts like these genuinely make me want to cry. The United States has become greedy, and painfully shortsighted. I lament to say it but I feel like we as a people have truly lost our way. It is frightening to think that a story about an old man with a pair of shoes can make you question the endurance of the United States as a country. Let us hope for the best.

I Paid extra on my truck to get the metal bumper. That may sound stupid but it saved me from having to replace the bed when some girls plowed into the back of me. If I had a plastic one, they would have gone all the way to the bed door. Either way I wouldnt have to pay for it because of their insurance, but it would have cost them lot more if I hadnt had a metal bumper.
