Math: Gender imbalance – Porn = Internet mayhem

Published by at 5:04 am under Uncategorized

China is once again targeting websites and search engines that offer pornography to China’s youth.  In the past, China has been singled out in this effort as secretly attempting to censor the internet.  With some Western countries getting in on the act, it is now more difficult to make this claim.

My question has nothing to do with any of the above, it stems from the horrible math this represents.

1) Gender imbalance from the “One Child Policy” resulting in surplus males

2) Lack of sex education inside China

3) Filtered internet content for pornography

Take the first two and subtract the third and you have internet dissent all over the place.

Danwei points out the announcement comes at an ackward time when bikini shots of actress Zhang Ziyi are posted on the People’s Daily.

    This is a point well made and the Zhang Ziyi pics show the contradiction and confusion very well. I really wouldn’t like to be a man living in China.

    Of course if guys really need porn they will find a way – the $84 million Aussie proxy was hacked by a teen within half an hour of going live.
