Imbalance


From here,

The Supreme People’s Court of China today passed legislation that will ban Chinese women from marrying non-Chinese men, with the law coming into effect at the beginning of 2018. The policy had been fiercely debated for a number of months before it finally won approval from the required number of legislators earlier today. Civil rights groups in China have condemned the restriction, pointing out that it discriminates against women by still permitting males to enter into interracial marriages.

“We strongly urge the People’s Court to reconsider this new law, and repeal the legislation before it comes into force.” A small group of protesters staged a rally outside the courthouse in central Beijing today, but were soon dispersed by authorities. Following decades of the one-child policy, China is now faced with a shocking gender imbalance – for every girl below the age of 18 in China, there are now three boys. “The law was introduced in order to promote social harmony,” commented one of the People’s Courts legislators.

I do wonder if the ratio is really three to one.  This is probably in error.  Even if it is, the male/female ratio is still  high.  This situation is of course due to two factors,

I. China’s long-time one child per couple policy.

II. The tradition that a son and his family take care of the parents in their old age.

What are the implications of this?  Consider hypergamy.  Chinese women will settle for nothing but the best.  They can afford to unleash their hypergamy.  Perhaps some will wait too long, and settle for less than they expected.  Probably they have their own versions of the carousel and alpha widows. But also probably they will get much of what they think that they want.

Even a small change in the supply can affect the MMP greatly.  It is the nature of the beast due primarily the one-to-one long term pairing.  It is a given that hypergamy be unrestrained; yet consider the situation when in the past, the supply situation was reversed.  After wars, when the supply of men is down, men and society tried to accommodate the situation as best as possible.  Think about that.

I wonder how many men will drop out; and drop out early.  Perhaps China will become a de facto frontier for MGTOW.  Probably any mention of MGTOW will be banned on the Chinese web, for it would be a totally foreign concept that must be rejected out of hand.  But MGTOW they will effectively be.  Will it take the form of men just doing enough to get by?  Will they be shamed?  Will they care?  If they don’t care about being shames, what are the implications?

And what about relieving their sex drive.  So many men without options; how will their desire manifest itself?  Self-service?  Pr0n?  Somehow they will do it.  In the long run, there will be resentment.

May the Chinese live in interesting times.

    Farm Boy,
    “May you live in interesting times.” is a Chinese curse.

    The day this was released, on its heels, there was a sound dispute to its veracity. The three to one ratio, given the vigilance of Chinese planners, never would happen.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_sex_ratio
    China is demographically heavy male. The reason that Farm Boy mentioned has the most to do with it. Given one child per family, that would require each couple to look after both sets of parents. Ouch!
    China has brought down some socially harsh, to feminists, decisions. AS the groom’s parent usually chip in the down payment on the couple’s house, no, she is not going to be awarded the house in a divorce.
    China will be interesting to watch for both the one child policy and surplus male population.

    Osborne is finally dropping the Remainers’ dead cat – which was expected by many next week – the idea is it is so visceral, so extreme, the papers will talk about little else. It may well work on the broadsheets, they may well talk about little else. The Times leads on his dire warnings:

    2p added to the 20p basic rate of income tax
    3p added to the 40p higher rate of income tax
    5p on the rate of inheritance tax, taking it from 40p to 45p
    A 5% jump in fuel and alcohol duties
    £2 billion cut from the pensions bill
    2% cuts to the “protected” NHS, schools and defence budgets
    5% cuts in budgets like policing, transport and councils

    Guido understands it took Vote Leave little more than an hour to secure 50 signatures of Tory MPs who would vote down Osborne’s empty threat budget:

    Little more than an hour to get 50 Tory MPs to sign a letter vowing to bring down the government. Osborne tells Today he’d rely on Labour votes to pass the budget – that is laughable.

    If Brexit happens, Osborne won’t deliver his emergency budget. The Commons will stop him if he tries. And he won’t be in post for long either way.

    There are three main reasons why George Osborne will not present the spending-cuts-and-tax-rises emergency budget he promises if Britain votes to leave the EU next Thursday.

    First, because were Brexit really to lead to an immediate economic convulsion, the Chancellor would do the opposite of what he says he’d do. Rather than raise taxes and cut spending, he would cut taxes and raise spending.
    Second, because were he nuts enough to try to do the opposite, the Commons would stop him.
    And, third, because in the event of Britain quitting the EU he won’t be Chancellor for long, and will thus be in no position to present a Budget at all.
    The polls must really be rattling the Remain campaign for Osborne to produce rubbish like this. The phrase he once applied to Gordon Brown applies to him: he is treating people like fools.

    Perhaps he and David Cameron can take the next logical step and threaten the end of western civilisation. But I was forgetting: that one’s already been tried.

    At one point, Winfrey asked Obama if she had any advice for men. “What can men do, leaving here?” the former talk show host asked.

    Obama’s response was pretty telling.

    “Be better,” the First Lady replied. As Winfrey screeched (literally) with laughter and the attendees of the women’s summit reacted with rousing cheers and applause, Obama reiterated, “Be better at everything.” And, the audience, along with Oprah shriek, howl and cheer some more.

    This offers some great insight into Mrs. Obama’s view of men, as well as the overall agenda at this summit. The one message the First Lady can provide to American men is that they’re just not good enough? That men aren’t living up to her, Oprah and the audience’s expectations of what a man should be bringing to the table for these perfect women.

    In the UK, pretty much every child has to wear school uniforms. In most cases, that means girls in skirts and boys in pants.

    If you don’t fit into one of these binary gender categories, this distinction can cause a lot of anguish. And this is something that an increasing number of schools in the UK are beginning to acknowledge.

    Earlier this week, it was announced that more than 80 publically funded schools across the country have now adopted gender neutral uniform policies.

    That means that the schools have either removed any reference to boys and girls in their dress codes, or in some cases, have expressly told children that they can wear whatever part of the school uniform they feel comfortable with.

Until I sat at a dinner table in Hong Kong with my uncle’s sister and brother in law and such, as the BIL sat there saying his sons better never marry ANY but a gal of Chinese descent, and he made it CLEAR by that he meant NOT even of another Asian nationality, then went on at some length about all that, that I realized racism is not unique to America, not at all… it was a revelation, to say the least (as well as a bit uncomfortable as the guy went on about “caucasians…” in a not very nice way.)

    It may not be law, but then again we are talking about a country that mandates cultural revolutions on a dime and has no qualms about telling it’s populace, “Do it, or the camp…what’s your choice?” BTW this is the current governmental structure I speak of, not the Chinese culture in general, which is a very beautiful but also very alternate culture that if I did not have a translator (uncle!) I would very much not understand, and yet it is the longest lived continuous culture on earth, so maybe they get it in lots of ways.

    Also, I called it long ago that if I were Chinese I would have wanted a girl, bc I could see even as a young child that women would be a hot commodity once that shortage thing took effect.

    It’s hardly a big secret that President Obama from the moment he arrived at the White House put the kibosh on any discussion of radical Islam as a security problem, even in classified channels. In 2009, the administration banned politically loaded words like “jihad” even in classified Intelligence Community assessments discussing terrorism – a message that was received loud and clear in the counterterrorism community. Missing the next 9/11 could be survived, career-wise, while accusations of Islamophobia would not be with Barack Obama in the White House.

    During Mr. Obama’s first term, there was a thorough purge of personnel in the Intelligence Community and the Defense Department who were unwilling to follow the new party line. People were mysteriously reassigned, contracts were suddenly cancelled, meetings were delayed never to be rescheduled. The message was obvious to counterterrorism professionals. As someone who has tried for years to walk a fine line on jihadism—we must be able to discuss political Islam and terrorism without stigmatizing all Muslims—I witnessed this happen, and it was tragically clear what the long-term consequences of this institutionalized unreality would be.

    Meanwhile, in many Muslim countries, a woman must get a man’s permission before being allowed to work at all. This is because women are largely restricted to the “home sphere” as opposed to the “public” one. But a progressive will more or less give you the old “separate but equal” line to justify what they claim merely boils down to “cultural differences.”

  63. I recently built a wall of sorts, a six foot wood fence between my place and them, and let me tell ya — big improvement over seeing all that visual blight every day! I mean I have seen better looking junkyards (with better stuff, too!) The system seems to persecute those who do and rewards those who don’t. How did we get to the point where industriously living the American dream is not OK but being a deadbeat loser adding nothing but dysfunction is?

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/06/16/breaking-labour-mp-jo-cox-shot-stabbed-constituency-surgery-yorkshire/

    A British member of parliament has been airlifted to hospital after having been “stabbed and shot” in an attack in her constituency in Yorkshire.
    Helen ‘Jo’ Cox is understood to be in “incredibly serious”, “critical condition” after she was attacked outside her constituency surgery in Birstall, near Leeds.

    One young guy interviewed on TV said there were three shots into her and then a knife.

    Sounds like she stepped into an argument between two blokes. A 52y.o. white guy* has been arrested. In an area with lots of immigration*

    *so far. Awaiting police announcement.

    Go Bloom! Pity I can’t join you. Too many things to do at the moment.

    Pity about the beer though. Many beers (e.g. Cill’s Draft Down Under) are greatly superior to Fosters.

    A white Chicago-based Social Justice Warrior with 11,000+ followers on Twitter is under heavy fire after criticizing the grieving father of the toddler who was snatched by an alligator for his “white privilege.”

    I don’t think that Vladimir Putin wants to blackmail Hillary Clinton. I think he will release the emails at the most opportune time to damage her campaign to the greatest extent. Granted that foreign governments should stay out of other countries campaigns, but Hillary has played games in Ukraine.

    Cill,
    I am sorry to hear about Molly. Would you make her a peanut butter and honey sandwich and tell her it’s from me?

    Spawny Get,
    Would you keep us posted with details on the murder of the MP? This is so far out of character for your country and, it would be out of character for one as violent as ours.

    Bloom,
    The problem with Muslim women working outside the home is, in their tradition, the fruits of her labor are hers alone and not part of the family’s income. This was brought home in a video by Karen Straughan. I think that this is it.

    The short version is that she had a Pakistani co-worker that was working three jobs while the wife stayed at home. If she found a job, he’s have to pick up a fourth to cover her absence.

    Fuzzie, I’ll try but there are some key facts that we won’t have for ages. This blows the referendum way open. I don’t trust that we’ll hear the truth, and certainly not in time for the vote…if that happens on time, or at all. The whole political system in the EU was in danger, this is one hell of an opportunity for some amoral bastards to take advantage of. They’ve already started.

    She seems to have been a very decent sort, but a true believer type. That’s a complicated combination where one can really make people who disagree with you very angry indeed. I doubt you could tell her anything negative about immigration. Immigration that creates immense issues for some, destroys lives.

    But also

    Rumour is that she broke into an argument between two guys, but no mention of the other guy after that. What was that argument about? Who was that guy?

    Desire her to be president he does.
