That IS scary.

But isn't it partly artificial? Didn't the one-child policy in China affect their disposition towards female children, with some families disposing of newborns when they turn out to be female?

Yes, I think it is partly to do with that, yet the male:female sex ratios are also out of wack in many other Asian countries, so I guess China's one child policy is not the whole story.

Does it altogether have something to do with the preference for males over females?

Now I'm starting to wonder what the ratio is here in the Philippines.

Slightly more women than men in the Philippines.

I'm putting up a company to sell blow up dolls in China. I'll make millions!
