Foreign women needed for Chinese bachelors: Scholar says China should let in more female immigrants so they can help marry the country's 30 million men who can't find wives
About 30 million men in China can't find wives in China due to the country's gender imbalance issue. That's nearly half of the population of Britain.
And a renowned scholar seemed to have found a shortcut to deal with the looming 'bachelor crisis': foreign women.
Mao Shoulong, a dean from the Renmin University, wrote in a newspaper column that more female immigrants should be encouraged to live and work in China, so that they would perhaps marry Chinese 'leftover men'.
Mao, a scholar, professor and sociologist, said that the government should allow more foreign women to live in the country, whose population is 1.3 billion.
He wrote: 'It could be an advisable tactic to aptly improve the reformation of the immigration policy and let more foreign women to come to live and work in China so as to relieve the "bachelor crisis".'

The EU should send all the female "refugees to them. A very fitting solution for both their problems!

Solution let women take TWO HUSBANDS ...I just knew a time would come when women in China would be appreciated Parents only wanting boys to carry on the family name / line can only acheive this if their sons find a wife.... Not Rocket Science.

They should be left to deal the mess that the China govt created on their own - sexless, fatherless & single. Baby girls are still left discarded on the side of the roads even to this day. Maybe the US can dropship them some blow up dolls to help with the sex part. As for reproduction? I doubt any woman would be dumb enough to marry these snot rocket blowing toothless, uneducated, unemployed "men."

Truth is most of these men are bottom of the barrel. No woman in her right mind will want anything to do with them.

I lived in China for a long time. What woman in her right mind would go to China to marry a man that doesn't bathe/brush teeth often and thinks it's his right to beat his wife if he's unhappy about something?
