Doing good too, been playing Fallout 4 all evening lol
I can't wait to see that! I gtg now though, goodnight! ^-^
I want to increase the number of women in Denmark-Norway's armed forces
They've been allowed in combat positions, and several served in both Rwanda and Albania, but it is still overwhelmingly men
The way I see it, getting women who can fight to join in greater numbers means more soldiers and staff that are rather necessary
And with 4.6% unemployment if I start recruiting from there and offering more incentives to join I can kill two birds with one scone
*immediately spits out the scone I got from the Danish Bakery*
I won’t be killed by your poisonous scones you filthy Dane! ->-ᕗ
Hey, it's the saying PETA wanted
Or was it feed two birds with one stone?
Don't worry, the scones aren't poisoned, just the danishes
Actually this won't affect me, I'll be gone by 2021
i'm sorry for your loss
THE REVOCATION OF THE ONE-CHILD POLICY
GREAT HALL OF THE PEOPLE, TIANANMEN SQUARE, BEIJING, PEOPLE’S REPUBLIC OF CHINA
- MAY 1997
The problem of China’s missing generation of women is one of the greatest threats to the economy and demographics of modern China. In 1996—the most recently passed year—for every 100 female infants that were born in the People’s Republic of China, 111 male infants were born. Such a disparity between genders on a national level was certainly not natural, but was instead the result of a catastrophic array of factors that is set to leave tens of millions of Chinese men bereft of any women to marry and a future generation with stunted rates of childbirth. How, then, has such a disparity between male and female children come to be?
The cause of the significant gap between male and female births is, evidently, due almost entirely to mass selective abortions of unborn females by the Chinese populace. A “son preference” has always been pronounced in Chinese culture, but such a preference intensified when the Chinese government incentivized and rewarded one-child families in its “one-child policy” that began in 1979. Many Chinese families, it seems, sought for their single child to be male and consistently aborted female children solely for their gender. The problem of female children in China is worsened by the fact that hundreds of thousands of them have been abandoned for their gender even after birth to make way for one-child families with a single son. However, the grievous sexism against female children in many Chinese families is not only a moral problem, but a demographic one. As was previously mentioned, China’s population is increasingly male, with fewer women to bear children. In a nation whose demographic growth is already throttled by its birth restrictions, this presents a major issue: an insufficient replacement generation for the presently aging citizens.
The revocation of the “one-child policy” that had been so calamitous for Chinese women, therefore, seemed to have the potential to decrease the birth gender disparity, improve replacement generation populations, and significantly decrease the abandonment of predominantly female children—and although the policy would surely have been revoked for those reasons within two decades, a newfound global pressure brought it to a sooner demise.
In the spring of 1997, Iranian royalty arrived in Beijing for the negotiation of closer political collaboration between the People’s Republic and the Iranian Empire. For Beijing’s party bosses and functionaries, it only magnified Iran’s recent Beninist influence. Across the globe, the persecution of women had been brought to light by modern movements for women’s equality—movements championed by Iran’s egalitarian Elysia Benin, who most recently helped the struggle of women in Bokoro and who has influenced “Beninist” women’s movements as far away as Québec. This global surge of egalitarian pressure starkly contradicted the Chinese female eradication inspired by the one-child policy. That pressure, coupled with the looming demographic and economic effects of a continuation of the policy, led to the subject of revocation being brought forth by paramount leader Jiang Zemin himself at a Politburo summit only weeks after the Iranian Empress’s visit—and the paramount leader’s word was all it seemed to take.
On May Day, 1997, a special convention of the National People’s Congress successfully passed a three-year-plan to gradually relax and finally revoke the one-child policy by the turn of the century, intending to “to improve the balanced development of population”—an obvious reference to the gender disparity. It seemed that even China had been touched by the global “Beninist” movement, and had acknowledged the demographic damage it had self-inflicted.
