    The CBC covered this months ago and was more complete:

    "Because of a traditional preference for baby boys over girls, the one-child policy is often cited as the cause of China's skewed sex ratio... Even the government acknowledges the problem and has expressed concern about the tens of millions of young men who won't be able to find brides and may turn to kidnapping women, sex trafficking, other forms of crime or social unrest."

    So the Chinese finally figured out that billions of single men cannot make babies alone. Isn't China supposed to be a smart nation?

    On the other hand, if anyone is thinking of investing in China's gay scene, now is the time.

    If someone gives birth to Siamese twins (I know, so unPC but hey it's me, right) does that count as one or two?
