32,000,000 China Problems?

With 32 million horny Chinese boys roaming that countryside, I'd be more than a little worried for the next 70 years or so if I were residing in China. But, that's just me.

Quote:
For the next 20 years, China will have increasingly more men than women of reproductive age, according to the paper, which was published online by the British Medical Journal. “Nothing can be done now to prevent this,” the researchers said.

Chinese government planners have long known that the urge of couples to have sons was skewing the gender balance of the population. But the study, by two Chinese university professors and a London researcher, provides some of the first hard data on the extent of the disparity and the factors contributing to it.
...yet they did nothing.

Quote:
Among children born second, there were 143 boys for 100 girls, the data showed.
Those 43 extra boys will no doubt cause havoc with the other 200 happily married folks in these stats.

Seems like a good time to be having girls right about now. 18.75 years from now, you can allow your daughter to become a kept woman, and (hopefully) become kept parents-in-law. Even in nominally communist China, the laws of supply and demand will work themselves out...

I'll pass this good news on to my daughters. Maybe in 14-16 years they can snag themselves a nice handsome and rich post-doc husband. And just when I was worried that females had become equal to males hence negating any chance for my daughters to get preferential scholarships in 14-16 years... Timely.

Alternatively, the 'State' could provide economic incentives, special jobs, etc., for those willing to practice homo-sex (not necessarily be homosexual, just practice the 'art,' since it doesn't lead to reproduction).

This concept was fairly well covered in a SF novel series by Joe Haldeman, called The Forever War, as of about a decade ago.

I don't know. 32 million feral young men, untamed by any woman? Sounds like a recipe for war or revolution to me.
