Focus on the Family scares me.
Sex has been going on for millions of years in and out of marriage. I don't see what the problem is.
People are going to do it.
You said "do it."
I don't see why Focus on the Family needs to be in China at all.
huh hu huh huh
Oh yeah, this is going to work.
Talk about making a bad situation worse.
Well with a teen birth rate of 5 per 1000, there is a lot of room for the Chinese to screw AND still be doing OK on sex education outcomes.
Seems they're doing much better than we are on that front.
Just wait a few years until their one child policy coupled with their cultural preference for sons gives them a massive surplus of young men who can't get laid. The estimates I saw said something like 20 million in the next 20 years or so.
They already have that problem.
20 million out of 1.3 billion is 1.5% of the population - it should fairly easily be absorbed by people marrying later (as people aren't going to not have girls now), more men having gay relationships and women moving to the relatively rich China.
Morals aside, my yellow fever makes me angry at this.
I think the previos statements were a bit misleading - this article summises the issue quite nicely:
The "40-60 million missing women" refers to, from my understanding, the shortfall of women in a certain bracket (i.e. the "marry and have kids" age bracket) and not overall.
Why can't these people just leave others' sex lives alone?
That's not the American way.
Once they get their foothold, they'll start teaching the rest of their Christian ways as well. I have faith in the Chinese govt. though - they take few prisoners when it comes to superstitious nonsense like the Falun Gong. Garner enough attention, or have enough influence and you'll get strongarmed. There's no Directive on religious freedom to hide behind.
Sick how these Christian groups find anyway in that they can be exposing a country's weakness. China has population problems - preach abstinence. Africa has LGBT discrimination problems, preach Christian heterogeneity.
That's all we need is Communists getting superstition. Before you know it, we'll have Chinese terrorists.
Google ads has got the solution:
China girls for marriage, yay!
*gets out credit card*
Actually the Chinese don't have population problems anymore. Maybe they are preaching abstinence so that more babies are born and less girls are aborted .
Do you think the government limiting the amount of children a couple may have is a reasonable restriction?
Seriously, have you been to China?
Have you read the above Economist link? The Chinese population doesn't seem to be growing very fast anymore.
