A professor in China is proposing that since the current birthrate that relies on the traditional coupling of one husband and one wife is too low, the country should consider the “two-husband strategy” where two men share one wife in the hopes of increasing the number of babies born:

It’s math, really:
With 34 million more men than women of child-bearing age, China has a problem.

But why stop at two? “Making meals for three husbands won’t take much more time than for two husbands”:
“It’s common for prostitutes to serve more than 10 clients in a day,” Ng wrote, before taking off on another offensive tangent. “Making meals for three husbands won’t take much more time than for two husbands,” he added." Wow. Progressive. https://t.co/m7uNXAgzEo

“. . .to share the relatively scarce supply of women”:
Professor Ng’s “suggestion to solve the oversupply of men is to allow involuntary bachelors — known as “bare branches” in Chinese because they cannot bear fruit for their family tree — to share the relatively scarce supply of women.” https://t.co/1JG9qsIyx8

Although, this really is the natural progression for a country that normalized femicide:
In different ways we see the evil effect of seeing one gender as "less than."
A preference for, & attribution of value to the boy child over the girl child, lead to the skewed ratio https://t.co/g4zGhvJW7e
