Mao Offered To Give The US Some Of China's Women



[...] the chairman said, "We have too many women. ... They give birth to children and our children are too many."

the women clearly got themselves pregnant. men had nothing to do with it.

he couldn't be happy just being a murderous dictator? he had to be a misogynist too?

and a generation later china is facing a crisis because the male-female ratio is out of wack and there are not enough women.

even tho the u.s. never took mao up on his offer, just think of how massive a fuck-up he would be remembered as being if the u.s. had agreed.

you took the words out of my mouth. china now has a skewed gender balance and millions of chinese men have no chance of marrying within their own country. i believe the same thing is occuring in india where there isn't even a one-child policy.
