This is actually a problem in small towns in Norway, too, especially up North! All the women are leaving for the big cities to study, whereas a lot of men(especially men above the age of 35) stay on the countryside to work on farms. In fact, the word "forgubbing" is an official term now, meaning "old men-ification". Yep, oldmenification is an official word in Norwegian. Suck on that, Faroes.

Why is India running out of women?  I know China shot itself in the foot with its single-child policy and prohibiting ultrasounds and abortions only AFTER the skewed gender ratio started becoming apparent.
Coloanas Featured By Owner Edited Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
India and China both prefer male children. Urbanisation (people moving into cities) and medium (India) or high (China) human development indexes lead to fertility declines (the number of children an average woman has). China's fertility rate is 1.66 children (rounded to 2) and India's is 2.5 children (rounded to 3), which is the world average.

Or basically, China's government says that if they have one child (or two if the parents are an only child), they'll get benefits, and they prefer males for some odd reason, in rural areas its because they think they work better than females. 

In India, more people are moving into cities, and that means less Kitty Cat 2 and they prefer male children too so, they abort female children. 

I know, so Cry forever 

(I'm such a nerd) :( (Sad)

In China they think male child is better than a female child. It has nothing to do with their single-child policy. The whole world shold take the single-child policy or our whole planet can't take us anymore.

I don't know about that, but I wish people wouldn't have so many children they can't provide for. And that couples should consider adoption.

Because the whole "female children will just steal money from the family" idea is still going on even though forcing women to get a dowry from their families has been outlawed. Married women have been killed over the fact that her husband (and many times even his family) wanted his wife to have a dowry. (It's much more common among the poor which is understandable, but no one should be killed over that!)

Ultrasounds are heavily regulated and must be put on a record because there have been too many times when a family aborted the fetuses specifically because they were female. In a documentary I saw (with lots pf evidence and photos to back it up) an Indian woman was pregnant with twins. Her husband's family wanted to find out if one or both were female and told her to abort them if they were both female. She refused to consent to an ultrasound for her children's safety, but they forced her anyway and found out both twins were girls. After that, her in-laws tried starving her, beating her, poisoning her, and even throwing her down flights of stairs just to have her miscarry. The woman left her husbands family and although it was hard, she was able to give birth to and raise two healthy girls.

Another part is family is a huge thing in China, as good as religion. If you don't have kids it's like you and your ancestors never existed. They want men so the family name can actually go on as well.

Story-Teller-Girl Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Not necessarily. Scientists are working on a way for same sex couples (at least female/female couples) to have kids on their own, plus if that were to fall through they could just make a law saying that every guy has to give up at least one sperm sample for sperm banks, so that would work too. Heck, depending on how long we lived, humans could eventually evolve to either be all hermaphrodites or reproduce a-sexually if it was really needed.

Families in India still sometimes feel a cultural obligation to pay a dowry when a daughter gets married. In this regard, daughters are often too much of an expense because the family must pay to raise them, and then pay at adulthood to marry them off. Especially in less modern areas where its discouraged for women to get jobs when they grow up (which bars them from making an income, which makes them more dependent on their families, which makes them more "expensive"...which is why many families don't want to deal with female children).

Meanwhile, sons have to be paid for to raise them, but can make an income working outside the home AND can gain a dowry after they marry.

This was the explanation I was raised with (I'm Indian). Dowries are illegal in India, as is checking the sex of a baby before birth. I've unfortunately heard of people who grow poisoned flowers to make it easy to make an unwanted baby very sick.

...people are slowly becoming more aware, but I'm glad to be in the U.S.

That's actually a far less stupid reason than what they did in China.  The reason for China's lack of girls is purely out of sexism.  Not even a damn financial reason for it, families just did not want to have girls.
YukoHoon Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014
It's not that they don't "want" to have girls. It is the fact that a girl, when married, would completely belong to her husband's family. Put against a "only one child per family" law that can have dire consecuences for the family if broken, what can they chose? Having a girl and having the family disappear, or having a boy to keep the family going? Mix that with a lack of proper education on lower classes, and you get the recipe for disaster the Chinese government has been cooking for over 15 years.
Ud-the-Imp Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2014
Oh right.  Forgot about the whole "keeping the bloodline going" thing and women treated more like property.  Still, I think that's a stupider reason than things being purely financial.  Money is still a pretty stupid reason, yes, but that's even stupider IMO.

Funny comic, but at the same time sad and true.

In India women are shared between up to 8-10 males because there are simply not enough. Abortions are illegal in India yet women will still get them because they would rather suffer the shame of having a living being cut out of them than live with the shame of having a daughter. Those countries who place too much value on males are a great example of what NOT to do in a society >.>
LadyLaurence Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I'm not sure its simple shame that causes the genocide of women that happens in India. 
In a lot of rural areas, or more traditional families, daughters are given away for marriage, while sons bring home a wife. In addition, the girl's family must pay a dowry. People, especially poorer people, cannot afford to raise and then give away a daughter, which would leave them alone and without any money in their old age. They would much rather have a son who will bring home a wife, a dowry, and eventually grandchildren to support them. In addition, sons are generally more capable of finding well paying jobs, or managing farms or whatever, because of the biases of society. Women, all around the world, are discriminated against, so it would be better to have a son.
The problem is caused by old, problematic traditions, poverty and some selfishness, not just some silly sense of value or pride.

Interesting fact, along with abortions (which are allowed in certain cases) checking the sex of a child before birth is illegal.
And the sex ratio is something more like 1.2 men for every woman, unless you're talking about specific places?

And on top of all of that...dowries have been outlawed as well as everything else. It just seems like peope aren't aware of that.

I'm almost certain it's mostly the second. idk if that's a bad thing to say, but people want their dowries. there's a lot of illegal money in that country sigh

wafa101 Featured By Owner Edited Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It doesn't stop there, if the girls family points out that its illegal to give a dowry or is too poor to do so, they will be shamed and labeled as selfish and poor by the male's family and degraded, if not, the girl's family will have their name dragged in mud. If they do decide to get the girl married anyways the guys family will mentally torture, nag and insult her and her family. If the girl fights back then she is labeled as impertinent and gets gasoline thrown on her and burnt alive, ORRR they throw acid on her face, kill her and make it look like a suicide, by blaming the acid thrown on her by highway men or goons and her "shame" at being grotesque as the reason for the suicide. Many will be rapped by a family member and actually kill themselves because they would rather die then live through the shame of being blamed as a whore/filthy/dirtied or a temptress (pretty much saying its her fault for being raped cause she "tempted" the rapist with her "whorish" ways) in which case her families name will be dragged through the mud and/or her husband will disown her children (leaving them to die) and divorce her or beat her to death. The gov't doesn't do anything because most of the gov't is made up of members of the mafia who corrupt the system, and not only do they condone such behavior but PROMOTE it cause a raped, "dirtied girl" is the perfect whore for the mafia members to use as they please. And don't even get me STARTED on the pressures of being good looking or ugly in India, the burden of being less then beautiful are much heavier for the women their then in the western world; they base beauty on things that cannot easily be changed such as eye-colour, eye shape, eye-size, skin colour, forehead size, hands, feet....I know we do that here too but over here its easier to find surgical ways to deal with the problem, over there they can't afford the girls are stuck with their "ugly" face and humiliated openly for the "flaws" they cant change... Sorry for the novel, My university thesis for gender studies was on this subject. (sorry for all the grammatical/spelling mistakes)
