Two facts. When I was little, I always fished in a river behind our house. One day I saw a paper bag floating down. I used the fishing rod to poke it open. I saw small legs. My mum told me not to tell people. Our neighbor last night dropped their baby girl as they already had two girls. Second, my well-off friend refused to use credit due to fear of leaving tracks as he had three girls and his wife worked at a government sponsored school.

I was born 1980s. At my age, I already lost 2 of my best friends. They both died in accidents. One girl whose parents are workers and of course she is the only child of family, the other boy whose parents are farmers and he has 2 sisters. The girl's parents divorced after her death and the boy's parents live with their elder daughter. That's a big difference due to the one child policy. That's the most heart breaking part of this stupid/policy. Now it's 2 children policy, and I really think GOV did it just to save the house market and suck more blood from people. Obviously, 2 children consume double houses.

Lol, it hilarious how everything always come back to racism and sexism with you liberals.No matter how much you dislike the policy, it was not inherently sexist, it just population control, THAT'S IT. This affects BOTH parents, not just women.It was the people who chose sons over daughters cuz historically, it is the sons who carry on the name and provided for the family, ESPECIALLY since women were married and became part of her husband's families. You can call it historical or even societal sexism if you want but it had nothing directly to do with the policy.

If we wanna defeat China we have to introduce the gay into their population. While they are all sucking down Apple Martinis and dancing to house music, we wipe their economy

Fucking China still calling itself "communist" when its people work for corporations, are payed salaries and live in economic disparity. Its almost like socialism doesn't work when you don't even try it at all.

To be fair population crisis was seen as real science & challenge for human beings to survive back at the time when one child policy was introduced, just like global warming today. Retrospectively of course everybody can make fun of it.

john oliver and last week tonight starting out badly leftist feminism likehow is this massivly consequential policy? mao great leap forward 30 millions starved in 5 years. but the 1 child policy disadvantage girls and women, they can push feminism with it, and how badly the socialist great leap forward was we dont mention cause this would help the left.further more undercutting that somethig needs to be done or china would be like india and india seems breaking, and both was social engineering society big time, but that cannot be pointed out cause this would again not help the roommate is chinese and said that the difficulty with "numbers like 34million men" is that its never clear when those numbers are mentioned if these are the officila numbers, or actually counted men, cause there are a lot of women with no registry, so it could be way less.what alarmist are warning from over population, did i miss a memo? saying that africa isnt increasing and reaching 2 billion in the next 3 decades or south east asia and india still eploding? arent there alarmist already running around telling everyon not to get children in sweden and other north american and european country now? so the overpopulation hystria was unjustified then but is rightly so now? and of course who is at fault men. not the people on individual trait, but by there genitals some would say its sexist but should stay in their lane? like some comedian who always claims he is a comedian but make a show like a news show. and just had show about bias in medicine where he deliberatly miscrafted connections and studies? or well like someone from the humanities goign for genderstudies telling medical and biological experts what gender is?and again misrepresenting quality even if socialstudies have shown that fewer children make parents spent more time education and money on them thereby raising them better on most variables.funny how he thinks he has to defend abortion. funny as he mentioned how its about who is incontrol of the process. cause its only about the mother, cause as we know lesbians are getting pregnant from each other cause no men involved, no doctors or nurses involved, and of course the unborn doesnt matter, cause you can be anti forced abortion and pro chocie when the only think that matters is control and the women. but dont take it from me a male and a doctor go look for some one with a humanities degree and some knowledge in gender canada which is always held up as the holy grail by pro choice people, about 5000 late term abortion happen, the reason may vary but it everytime means an unborn has to be killed inside the womb, cause it cannot come out alive, therefor doctors make the heart stop and than get the child out afterwards. sometimes its medical reason of the mother (less than 5%) in othertimes is unclear why the wome want it. but tell why would you let a doctor and a woman if they agree on it kill a child inside the uterus if it could be born alive and given up for adoption or else.

Ironically, Chinese men stare with obvious seething hatred when they see a "foreigner" with a Chinese wife.They make comments on "race traitors", etc.....yet they can only really blame themselves and their parents for supporting the idiots who created the gender ratio problem.This type of behavior is common even in the streets of Shanghai and Beijing.

Raising the country's economic prospect ≠ hold onto power, ok?It means fewer child starved, better living standard for everyone in society. You just assume the intention of every Chinese policy seems to be to grab onto power, don't you? You got that as your conclusion then look for evidence. That why you always got and distorted view of those problems. Also, when translating the answers of Chinese people, don't add things they didn't say in the clip to fit your narrative. It's so lame.

Newsflash to everyone--every country--everywhere: ignore and exclude women from your governance at your own peril. Without women, humanity is at most half of what it would be.

Misty Waters
Misty Waters Yesterday, 14:29 forgot to mention to exponentially high dowery that men are expected to pay in order to get married..which has raised to prices that men in rural areas have no hope of affording unless they relocate to the cities. So actually it is more economical to have a daughter due to the ramifications of the 1 child policy

Can John Oliver tell me more specific , in which exactly provinces, there’s tightening access to abortion? And in what way , by how to make divorcement more difficult? I’m a Chinese and I never see this or heard of this. If you can’t then stop misleading people and read the script whatever others give you .

China had a choice of massive overpopulation, doubling pollution levels, increased chance on civil unrest, weakened economic progress etc, or the one-child policy and some problems, which are related to the policy but with better other policies, training and rules could have been circumvented. If you look at China nobody will say that the biggest problem is a lack of people.

Wilfred Darr Yesterday, 13:43
"in the 60's ands 70's, overpopulation was a global concern with alarmists making apocalyptic predictions..."In the 40's and 50's wars and earthquakes were signs of the end times, Jesus return was imminent... In the 80's and 90's we were destroying forests to make paper bags (except we weren't: the forests that were destroyed were destroyed to make way for farming, had nothing to do with "paper or plastic", the forests that were harvested for pulp and paper were replanted and are today being harvested for "compostable bags" (very green... ). Yes yes I know "but that's totally different than climate change because the sky really is falling this time!" Every generation has its 16 year old girl, whether Joan of Arc or Greta Thunberg that people feel compelled to follow to fulfill whatever religious fantasy they hold to.

looking at the population explosion since the last few decades, in next few decades the whole world will be required to have a one-child policy so that mother earth remains prosperous and beautiful
EmberFlower Yesterday, 12:46
It would be great if everyone chose to only have 1 or, at most, 2 children. But it must be a choice. You just can't force this. 7:35 except this is exactly how it works. With less children parent has more time and resources (financial and emotional) for it and that does make a big difference. As for fatness, it's not because they were only children but because their parents were unwise in how they fed them. Having more kids would not make them wiser. As for everything else... yea, fuck China.
phookadude Yesterday, 12:26
When Chinese manufacturers in cities were looking for laborers they went into the countryside to hire people and they took mostly young women because young women can be housed with fewer problems than young men. This magnified the lack of marriageable women in faming communities even more.

My nephew is married to a Chinese-American girl. Her parents immigrated from China and her mom still spends much of the year there. They were so furious that she dated an American guy that for 3 years they wouldn't talk to her. We couldn't understand why her parents were so mad about it until she explained that she had been not only promised to a guy in China but that he was going to actually pay her parents $15,000 USD to marry her and they agreed. She wasn't even going to have a choice and she wanted to no part of it.

Yeah, he should lecture them and reprimand them for "not having learned the lesson yet" from the enlightened Britons. As a homage for the British battle ships that forced the last dynasty to open their ports and people to opioids addiction.

Don't forget the the natural “sex ratio at birth” is around 105, that means, at birth on average, there are 105 males for every 100 females, so before you go nuts about there's 35 million more male than female in China, think about this fact.
