    Holy shit. I hope everything goes well with the surgeries. And also that she is able to get the money for them. Someone needs to do a fund raiser for this lady. Hard to believe those things were in here for over 30 years.

    Holy Shit! It sure sucks to be a girl in China.

    QFT. That woman shouldn't have to pay for the operation, and if so, then at least not for more than one. This is just cruel and unfortunate. No one deserves this at all. And this supposedly happened because of what sex she was (a girl). That's just sad and horribly wrong. Fuck China and it's male-dominate society. THIS is what it does to those who live in it. Be they the criminals or the victims.

    And for some reason, the Chinese culture still hasn't figured this out. You keep popping out/keeping only boys and you're not going to have any girls with which to make new babies. There is a majorly disproportionate amount of men to women in the country and it just keeps getting worse.

    It's actually something they understand too well, in my opinion. As far as I am aware China, Japan are both over populated. Focusing more on boys than girls allows them to control the population a bit.

    About your last statement, do you have any sources for it? I've not heard of any disproportionation causing issues, just that they had a lot of single men w/o partners.

    Yes, it's truly shocking that multiple long-standing, ingrained cultural traditions and outlooks haven't yet adapted to a policy that's only been around for ~20 years.

    Which is why the policy should be quite effective at reducing the population in the long-term. Not only is the birth-rate below "replacement" levels, but the next generation will have fewer women to produce children, thus reducing the population even further in the generation subsequent to that and so on. It's not like the cycle is going to be allowed to continue on to the extinction of the Chinese people or anything; once the population drops enough, the government would certainly relax/change the law.

    I feel so sorry for her.

    Heck, I feel sorry for Chinese women in general, but what was done to her is horrible.

    The first thought that came to my mind after reading that; "Well, at least they didn't throw her in a river."
