The war on baby girls: Gendercide

A story well worth reading. Besides the horror of a 100 million missing girls there is the fact of the population imbalance that can only lead to violence on a large scale as the boys become young men, and without wives, they will turn to violence. Sociologists have known for years that young unwed males are most prone to violent behavior. Any truthful man can tell you the same thing...

"In any country rootless young males spell trouble; in Asian societies, where marriage and children are the recognised routes into society, single men are almost like outlaws. Crime rates, bride trafficking, sexual violence, even female suicide rates are all rising and will rise further as the lopsided generations reach their maturity"
