How Ukraine Can Save China From Its Existential Threat (Spoiler Alert: Girls)

Tyler Durden's picture

In China last year, just over 115 boys were born for every 100 girls, and since sonogram technology was introduced to China in the 1980s - allowing families to determine a baby’s gender during the first few months of pregnancy - the gender imbalance in the world's largest economy has grown colossal. However, as Beijing News recently explained, there may be a solution for China's 34 million woman shortfall... Ukrainian women, as "their economy is depressed but beautiful women are running rampant." While Foreign Policy notes that the best destinations for Chinese men to find spouses are Japan and South Korea, there appears to be plenty of fish in the sea, at least outside China. Oh the wonders of Ricardian comparative advantage - Ukraine needs an export business (and produces - from what we have heard - attractive women) and China needs to import 'women' (to fill its massive shortfall). Global economic growth problems, solved...

 

As Foreign Policy reports,

"Their economy is depressed but beautiful women are running rampant,” the state-run Beijing News reported Jan. 22 in a story suggesting that Ukrainian women could be the solution to China’s woman shortage. The piece, illustrated with charts, bubbles, and cartoon illustrations of lonely Chinese men, was a breezy attempt to make light of China’s missing women and the severe gender imbalance caused by couples aborting female fetuses in favor of boys. So widespread is the practice that it has badly skewed the country’s sex ratio: The global average is around 105 boys born for every 100 girls; but in China last year, just over 115 boys were born for every 100 girls.

 

The problem has been brewing since sonogram technology was introduced to China in the 1980s, allowing families to determine a baby’s gender during the first few months of pregnancy. Combined with the country’s restrictive family-planning policies — until recently, most urban families were only allowed a single child in order to curtail population growth — and a traditional preference for sons, the newfound ability to practice sex-selective abortion has resulted in one of the world’s highest gender imbalances. The topic flared anew in the public mind after the National Bureau of Statistics announced the latest population figures on Jan. 20, noting that at the end of 2014 China had 701 million men and 667 million women, a shortfall of nearly 34 million women.

 

...

 

China is not alone in these cultural predilections. Indian social scientist Ravinder Kaur wrote in an August 2013 paper that “the common response” in both China and India “when the connection between sex selection and bride shortage is pointed out is that rather than allow daughters to be born, they would resort to importing brides.” Kaur also wrote that bride shortages in China and India can lead to “kidnap marriage,” which includes “deception and enticement” and “luring women for marriage into high sex ratio areas.”

 

To address the problem, China has resorted to propaganda campaigns extolling the virtues of daughters and offering cash incentives for couples who have them. These measures have spurred more female births, but not enough — China’s gender imbalance is still “the most serious in the world and has lasted for the longest time and affected the largest number of people,” China’s National Health and Family Planning Commission said in a Jan. 21 statement.

Beijing News provided a tongue-in-cheek infographic explaining the problems and potential solutions... (our Chinese is not great but the pictures seemed to speak for themselves)...

 

Encourage feather-boah tickling parties...?

 

or marry a Ukrainian woman...

Because, from what we are told, not all Ukrainian women look like this...

It's what they are. Men are romantics. Women are just opportunists.

The only Ukranian woman I've dated was a looker, but a bit of a sociopath, being among several other things, a dealer in stolen jewelry.

Asian mix might be good for Ukraine.  I knew a russian/ukraine couple.  She was "cute" in the face but Asian FAT.   I wouldn't call little Nazi people "geniuses" either.

"Their economy is depressed but beautiful women are running rampant,”

Beautiful women running rampant sounds dangerous,  I'll gladly help out.  Send a few of the beautiful blondes my way.  They can stop running and will no longer have to be rampant.  If they look and/or act like Hillary(!) (fat, terribly wrinkled, kankles, shriek when they talk, yell a lot) they will be returned to sender.

I am creepy, after all.

Why the hell would Ukrainian women want to breed with Chinese men? Please no.

No point in going into WHY there is a female shortage in China I suppose ;-)

MEAN BUSINESS's picture

Not much point nmewn, unless there's some evidence to suggest that there was no 'one child policy' or boys were not the preferred choice.

Ever seen the movie Children Of Men?

I mentioned it a month ago here on ZH to PT December 30 at 1:23

Hope it was enjoyable and as the song said as the last few credits rolled by: "Cunts are still ruling the world" LOL!

Yep, its pretty well documented...

Shortage,no.   The solution more WOAR, yes.  Putin had best keep that Siberian frontier well fortified, the Dragon is going to want a taste after the Spratley's are under control.

The chinese are very xenophobic and will only marry outside of their race if they have to, as it will cause a lack of face.  The chinese male/female ratio has been skewed by the one child policy.  This has been going on for many years and the chinese male population is totally out of whack with the available females.  This makes the chinese the most dangerous country in the world.  They have millions of extra males and what better way to balance the ratio than war.  The chinese need a cheap source of energy to allow themselves to grow and meet the promises the chi-coms have made to the restless population and they can afford to lose a few million restless males.  This does not bode well for the near future.  How is that fall out shelter coming along?

Hmmmmm....what if we dropped a "gay marriage bomb" on those fuckers? That'll show 'em!

He's right about the xenophobia.

There's a tactical thermonuclear app for that.

You think nobody else has thought of this already?

Who was that masked man's picture

But wouldn't that create a gender imbalance in Ukrain with all the good looking Ukrainian women having gone to China leaving only a few skaggy sweathogs behind?

It would reduce the "Viking" breeding stock in the Ukraine, yes ;-)

I asked my Chinese friend to watch for a Ukrainian dating site written in Mandarin advertized in, lets say, China Daily. So far, he can find none. If one pops up then you know it's on!

"Foreign Policy notes that the best destinations for Chinese men to find spouses are Japan and South Korea"

This seems really improbable.  I would be extremely surprised to find Japanese women who would wish to marry Chinese men; to put it politely, they do not have a high view of the Chinese and who wants to reproduce with someone whom you despise?  The Korean women I know want to marry American or European men, so that they don't have to deal with the grotesque forms of sexism found in Korean culture; why would they opt for Chinese sexism (a system where they actually kill off girl fetuses)?
