China Is Running Out of Women

First and foremost I would like to say that I know I have taken an unusually large break from my rantings, for this I am sorry.  I hope, and I’m guessing that most of you get about in your days and weeks just fine without my random bitch fests.  I’ve been very busy lately and continue to be very busy so I haven’t had much time for posting.  For this reason I have been just waiting for something that stood out as worthy of a hearty verbal beating.  I think this might be the one.

I have to say, that I hate a lot of things.  Some of you may think hate is a strong word and that I’m probably being dramatic.  I’m always dramatic but I really do hate this one.  I hate China!  I don’t hate the Chinese people per say, I don’t know them so I can’t really hate them.  What I hate is their country, their government, and it’s policies.  There are certain things that stand out more than others, but they have a lot of them.  Some of the fucked up shit they eat (ex. Dogs).  Some of the archaic and generally medieval beliefs about stupid “home remedies” like endangered tiger penis’ that if snorted in a low light setting while chanting making your man junk stand up straighter.

The idea that it is perfectly acceptable to industrialize 100% of a country and cause species to go extinct at the rate of water dropping over Angel Falls.  General lack of a shit to give about any sort of human rights at all if it conflicts with becoming a superpower.  I’m no environmental crusader by far, but I do think that all countries should regulate certain things.  China’s insistence on being allowed to pollute the earth with lead, mercury, and any other hazardous wastes they see fit at as high a rate as they can manage in the name of money pisses me right the fuck off.  I’ve heard the argument that “powers” did so 100 years ago and that’s why they are superpowers.  Great, now we know better so go fuck yourselves China.      

This is primarily why I find this particular article rather hilarious.  It turns out that yet another retarded Chinese practice/belief is going to begin to bare rotten fruit... soonish.

More than 24 million Chinese men of marrying age could find themselves without spouses in 2020, state media reported.   The study, by the government-backed Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, named the gender imbalance among newborns as the most serious demographic problem for the country's population.

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

Researcher Wang Guangzhou said the skewed birth ratio could lead to difficulties for men with lower incomes in finding spouses, as well as a widening age gap between partners.  According to Dillinger there really isn’t a problem there either.  Allow me to explain.  China can take up the wonderful and peaceful religion of Islam.  This will allow them to mercilessly rape and molest the women they do have in the name of Allah and cause the birth rates to skyrocket.  Once the new round of female births reach the age of 9 they can be sold into loveless marriages with men old enough to be their grandfathers and this will close the gap.

Another researcher quoted by the newspaper, Wang Yuesheng, said men in poorer parts of China would be forced to accept marriages late in life or remain single for life, which could "cause a break in family lines” which nobody would notice anyhow because there are only upwards of 36 last names for the entire population.

"The chance of getting married will be rare if a man is more than 40 years old in the countryside. They will be more dependent on social security as they age and have fewer household resources to rely on," Wang said.  So it turns out that communism doesn’t work?  NO WAY!  It’s a good thing somebody finally tested it after so many years so we finally know.

The situation influenced people to seek male offspring, who are preferred for their greater earning potential as adults and thus their ability to care for their elderly parents.  Dillinger doesn’t see the problem.  A 50 year old virgin son with no wife or kids will have even more money to spend on asbestos lined adult diapers and bootlegged, lead infused Ensure for mom and pop.

The Global Times said abductions and trafficking of women were "rampant" in areas with excess numbers of men, citing the National Population and Family Planning Commission.  Illegal marriages and forced prostitution were also problems in those areas, it said.  Alla hu Akbar?

The study said that in some areas the male-female ratio was as high as 130 males for every 100 females, a report by the Mirror Evening newspaper said.  The report said the study urged the government to relax the so-called "one-child" policy and study the possibility of encouraging "cross-country marriages."  An excellent policy change this would be too.  When you’re already living with 19 people per square inch in “populated” areas what is another 5 or 6?  This is why we are built with laps.  Besides, those pesky animals are just taking up valuable space and making no contributions in other areas so they can always be evicted.  What the hell good is a fat, bumbling, bamboo eating, black and white bear anyhow?

China first implemented its population control policy in 1979, generally limiting families to one child, with some exceptions for rural farmers, ethnic minorities and other groups.  Researchers said the gender imbalance problem cropped up in the late 1980s when the use of ultrasound technology became more prevalent.  This allowed women to easily determine the sex of their foetuses, leading to an increased number of sex-selective abortions.

Good call China, you guys are too awesome for your own good.  You just keep on keepin’ on.  Soon you’ll be all depressed, hanging out with your blue balls and contraband porn, wankin’ yourself raw while sitting in a puddle of your own lead contaminated tears.  You could always invest in some Japanese technology like Love Plus to ease the loneliness and get your pedo on.

Or if you exhaust yourself with morbid depression and self-loathing.

Or if you need something to cuddle in your infinite sadness or to hump away at when you finally snap.

Let me say that for the record. I love rants about China. Especially when they're intelligent. Unfortunately, yours isn't.

You do realise that Buddhism is one of the most peaceful religions in the world, if slightly violent and disgusting past (as with all religions). Taking up Islam? Err... the amount of work Islam would need to convert a country that's steeped in Buddhism (beliefs directly contradicting Islam) for the past two millenia or so.

Oh and be honest with yourself. You're obviously racist. Don't use disclaimers like "I don't hate Chinese people." and then write a whole article about "stupid Chinese culture".

Let me say for the record that you're an idiot. What the flying fuck does Buddhism have to do with my rant. I didn't say they were likely to take up Islam, I just said that it would be a way to fix their lack of women issue. In case you still don't get it I was making a facetious remark based on the fact that Islam is violent and allows the raping of women... more rape = more births = more potential for female babies = more women for them to rape. Get it asshat? Actually I'm really not racist. To be honest I don't much care if you think I am because you're obviously half retard but here's the fact. I will give anybody from any race or gender an equal opportunity before I meet him or her so when I do meet them they can individually prove to me whether they are or are not a waste of space and oxygen. As far as general "cultures" go, that is not a person or a race. It's a way of acting and general being that tends to be specific to a race only because it also is going to be specific to an area demographic. These are not mutually exclusive things. Cultures can be failures. Not all cultures are worth a shit and in general, China has many things I hate. For the sake of argument, so does the United States... and many other countries. Did you actually graduate high school? Thanks for your input though. Please stop back any time.

umm i have no religion but id like to ask where in the quran did you read that raping women mercilessly and having sex with 9 year olds was approved... i dont know if your aware but the islamic teachings and the christian teachings have alot of similarities ur view on the islamic people is ignorant and racist probably stemmed from your views on the iraq war

Dillinger said...

@ cboykin, If you've read the various teachings of Islam and you don't know where it says that women are possessions to be used then you aren't even smart enough to debate with. I suspect you haven't read them and take the word of Muslims who also don't know their religion really or who are lying to you. As for 9 year olds simply look to modern Islamic countries but again, the 9 year old reference specifically was a reference to one of Muhammad's wives with whom he consecrated the marriage at age 9. This is still done. My view on Islam is accurate and very real, Islam is not a race, it is a religion, and I suspect that you have difficulty ensuring you don't drool on yourself on a regular basis. As for my views of the Iraq war, that really has little to do with this actual topic. Learn something before you attempt to spar with me.

Oh honey, you make me sad for the future of our planet.

Dillinger said...

Oh honey, would you care to explain why? Or is it that your simple mind doesn't like how bluntly I put things combined with your inability to manufacture a reasonable retort? I suspect that's the case.

I just want to say I agree with you!! I mean what has China given the us and the world that is actually worth shit?? We all know that the stuff they make and send us is going to be recalled eventually, which we idiots in the US keep buying. I think us Americans are too nice.

Might want to adjust your numbers. Nature naturally produces 6% more male births than female. China, with a population of over a billion would have 60 million more males just from natural birth patterns (for simplicity rounding off population to a billion. Aggregate population numbers will include women in older age groups and since women live longer than men won't account for availability of women in the young reproductive category. Unless young men are interested in marrying grandma those "extra" older women won't have a significant impact on young mens marriage prospects.

Those "surplus" males are concentrated in the young reproductive age category, when males sex drive is at it's highest and male testesterone is at it's peak. What are the social consequences?

Now let's nudge the numbers a little, if gender selection pushes male births up to 10% more than female then you could potentially have a 100 million extra males in the population pool. What if gender selection pushes it even higher than that? Does anybody really know the true figures? Also consider that India (the other most populous nation) is also practicing gender selection and may even be worse than China, we can also plan on having at least another 100 million single young males from the subcontinent. Other countries such as Vietnam, Korea and Phillippines also have male preferences and are becoming permeated with gender selection technicques also. What does that portend? I think my numbers are pretty conservative, just how many potential extra males could this world fill up with in the future? How many of these males will immigrate to the West (particularly US) to find wives? Should we let them?

Every time I see an article on this issue I see this 24 million (r so) extra Chinese men estimate, just for once I'd like to see someone sit down and give a more accurate story. I'm not a human population expert or mathematician but even basic math and understanding of birth patterns shows the 24 million figure to be a ridiculous underestimate. perhaps rerun this article with more realistic numbers?

BTW The 6% extra males is an average worldwide, even here in the US we have millions of extra single males in the young reproductive age category. Our (relatively) long lived population ends up with more aggregate women but like I said before, 20 something year old men aren't looking to hook up with old ladies in walkers. So much for the male shortage myth that the ladies (even young ones) seem to believe exists here.

Anonymous... does the term "snark" mean anything to you? How about "sarcasm"? I didn't think so. I'm making fun of China not attempting to deal out 100% accurate facts. Again, making fun of China because there's a lot to make fun of China about.
