From the article:
In 1979 China signed a $50m four-year deal with a UN body designed to help it control its spiralling population through family planning. It was the largest foreign aid package Beijing had accepted in almost 20 years.
the funds became entwined in China's one-child policy that was just
taking hold, and instead of sponsoring an education drive for small
families, the money was used to pay for posters in Chinese villages
proclaiming "You can abort it! But you cannot give birth to it." (it being a female child)
Unnatural Selection by Mara Hvistendahl charts how the trend towards
choosing boys over girls, largely through sex-selective abortions, is
rapidly spreading across the developing world.
While the natural sex ratio at birth is 105 boys born for every 100 girls, in India
the figure has risen to 112 boys and in China 121. The Chinese city of
Lianyungang recorded an astonishing 163 boys per 100 girls in 2007.
bias towards boys has been estimated to have caused the "disappearance"
of 160 million women and girls in Asia alone over the past few decades.
The pattern has now spilled over to Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia,
the Balkans and Albania, where the sex ratio is 115/100.
The unnatural skewing towards male populations has become so
pronounced in recent decades that Hvistendahl, a writer for Science
magazine, says it has given rise to a new "Generation XY". She raises
the possibility that with so many surplus men – up to a fifth of men
will be single in northwestern India by 2020 – large parts of the world
could become like America's wild west, with excess testosterone leading
to raised levels of crime and violence. (some of that violence being raised rape rates)
in which men substantially out number women are not nice places to live,"
Hvistendahl claims western governments actively promoted abortion and
sex selection in the developing world, encouraging the liberalisation
of abortion laws and subsidising sales of ultrasounds as a form of
"It took millions of dollars in funding from
US organisations for sex determination and abortion to catch on in the
developing world," she writes.
Even now, when the pattern of sex
selection has been well documented and the prospect exists of the
developing world accommodating tens of millions more men than women, the
UNFPA is refusing to face up to its mistakes and confront the problem,
Enter...Trans Trending in the good old US of A. The male medical machines supports the steady growing number of females transitioning for the precise reason its helped to financially support the abortion of female fetus's in poor countries: Misogyny and the value of males over females! While the US government looks the other way for exactly the same fucking reasons!
The direct backlash against feminism began in order to knock women back into the kitchens they walked away from, marching toward the hopes and dreams of rising above being mere "women" to attaining being fully human. Once Postmodernism and Queer Theory jumped aboard the feminist backlash bandwagon and corporate America high jacked the middle and lower classes the kitchens women were being driven back into were sealed. All creating seemingly media driven polar opposite options for females; one being hyper-femininity and the other being "male" through transition.
The more hyper-femininity and the media that drives it home take hold of first world countries, the more we are seeing trans trending rise among younger and younger girls/women. Without feminist inspirations to help young women fight against the overwhelming presence of hyper-femininity, more females are fearfully turning towards transition. Both options for females leading us further away from the full human beings feminism set out to show women we could all be.
