ZHENGZHOU -- The number of males in China at marriage age is 18 million more than that of females due to a long period of high sex birth ratio since the 1980s, according to the country's family planning authorities.

The sex ratio at birth in rural areas is 122.85:100, higher than the national average of 119.58:100, as compared with the normal sex ratio of 103 to 107:100, according to Zhang Weiqing, National Population and Family Planning Commission director.
By 2020, males aged between 20 and 45 are forecast to be 30 million more than females in the country, he said at a rural population and family planning conference in the Henan Province capital.

Rural families still have a preference for boys as agricultural production currently relies mainly on laborers, according to Zhang.

China will continue to crack down on illegal prenatal sex selection and will try to help people discard traditional ideas of a preference for boys, the official said.

They could encourage homosexuality. That would ameliorate the effects and tick off Trip. Two wins.

Maybe having a generation or two of millions more men than women (and the ensuing social issues) will help the following generations to dispense for good with the idea that boys are preferable to girls...

It's a great way to reduce the POPULATION,  a natural way!

ha ha ha

First you have 3% homosexuals females....
Then you have 20% more partnerless males..
and you'll need a big number of PROSTITUTES to pacify the males...
and 15% of the females would not marry young...

automatically, at least 3 + 20/2 + 15 = 28% will not be FERTILE!

So FORGET about all those CRAZY PUNISHMENTS planned by the ESTABLISHMENT....
The population problem will be solved NATURALLY!

HA HA HA

China will probably have fertility of 1.3 to 1.5 by year 2030!

That's a bad idea. If we recommend homosexuality at present, why we did not do something to prevent this status quo from happening in the first place?

I think its time to launch a war against Taiwan which will probably will consume alot of males. Is it a good iea?  :)

Read between the lines?

The article lacks an important detail.
Why is there an imbalance?

From the article we only get this, "Rural families still have a preference for boys"
So, what is the practice that leads to this imbalance?
And is it only to be found in the country?
