There’s an atrocious story in The Economist about how the worldwide gendercide rate is rising at an alarming rate.
I’ll give you one guess which gender suffers from mass-extermination.
In some areas there are 130 baby boys to 100 baby girls being born. The culprit? Utrasounds and abortions have given parents the technology to choose whether they have a valuable boy or an expensive girl. Culture and tradition still hold that boys are better. Some laws, as in China, prohibit large families (you can’t waste your one allotted child on a girl). Economic suppression of women around the world hold that men are more valuable as bread-winners (because women are restricted from the earning of bread) and as retirement security for their parents. Boys are valuable, girls are costly.
Why should you care?
China alone stands to have as many unmarried young menbare branches, as they are knownas the entire population of young men in America. In any country rootless young males spell trouble; in Asian societies, where marriage and children are the recognized routes into society, single men are almost like outlaws. Crime rates, bride trafficking, sexual violence, even female suicide rates are all rising and will rise further as the lopsided generations reach their maturity,” the article states.
In 1990 it was estimated that over 100 million girls are dead. The toll is millions higher now.
Only one country has managed to change this pattern. In the 1990s South Korea had a sex ratio almost as skewed as Chinas. Now, it is heading towards normality. It has achieved this not deliberately, but because the culture changed. Female education, anti-discrimination suits and equal-rights rulings made son preference seem old-fashioned and unnecessary. The forces of modernity first exacerbated prejudicethen overwhelmed it, states the article.
Think about the 100 million dead baby girls next time you hear Glenn Beck promise that equality and the pursuit of equal and economic justice will cost you your “freedom.”
Equality is a matter of International Security. Make no mistake about it. A world ruled by single men will self-destruct in a violent ball of testosterone-fueled fury, led by the same power-crazed idiots that were deluded enough to call discrimination “freedom.”
