  • Chinese has a major shortage of women,

  • and birth rates are plummeting.

  • As China faces a population crisis,

  • a new database is asking:

  • Are you breed ready?

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • That way, you get an alert

  • each time we publish a new episode.

  • You know, one thing

  • I love about the Chinese Communist Party

  • is that even after all these years,

  • it still manages to surprise me.

  • For decades,

  • China had the One Child Policy.

  • It meant most Chinese people

  • were only allowed to have one child,

  • or face fines.

  • Or forced abortion.

  • China: the only country

  • that's officially both Anti-Choice and Anti-Life.

  • But because of a cultural preference for boys,

  • this meant a lot of baby girls

  • were aborted or killed after birth.

  • So today,

  • there are more than 30 million more men.

  • Sowill China have 30 million men

  • going their own way?

  • Of course not.

  • That's because the Chinese Communist Party's

  • got their backs.

  • There's a variety of solutions,

  • from forcing oppressed ethnic women to marry them...

  • to a thriving human trafficking trade

  • from around the world...

  • to robot wives.

  • You know you've got a problem whenrobot wives

  • is the least bad among those three options.

  • But a Dutch internet expert,

  • Victor Gevers,

  • from the non-profit group GDI Foundation,

  • discovered a new tactic.

  • He discovered an open database

  • of 1.8 million women in China.

  • The average age is 32,

  • but some are as young as 15.

  • The database contains a ton of personal information,

  • including their phone numbers,

  • addresses,

  • and something calledBreedReadystatus.

  • Now BreedReady could just be

  • a poor translation of some Chinese term.

  • It could be as innocent as a saying

  • this woman has children,

  • or the woman has reached childbearing years.

  • After all,

  • the youngest woman with a breed ready status is 18.

  • But, in the context of China's birth rates

  • falling to the lowest level ever

  • and the Communist Party's general habit

  • of launching large scale top down systems of state control t

  • o deal with problems,

  • some people are concerned this is a giant database

  • of women meant for breeding.

  • As Foreign Policy says,

  • Female bodies have always been treated as state property

  • that yielded what the country needed.”

  • 90% of the database's women are single,

  • and 82% live in Beijing.

  • Beijing is where all the best Communist officials live.

  • The database also included fields labeledpolitical

  • andhasvideoas well as links

  • to what appear to be Facebook profile pages.”

  • And since Facebook is banned in China,

  • these girls are very naughty.

  • It is not clear if the database

  • is part of some dating app,

  • a government registry,

  • or some other organization or company.

  • However, even if this is completely innocent,

  • there's the problem that personal information

  • about a lot of women,

  • including full names and addresses,

  • is accessible in a totally open database.

  • No wonder China says it's the biggest victim of hacking.

  • Though, since the database is totally open,

  • I'm not sure you could count that as hacking.

  • Gevers is also the researcher

  • who discovered authorities in Xinjiang

  • were tracking an absurd amount of data

  • about the ethnic Uighur population.

  • Also, in a totally open, unsecure database.

  • Now there are a lot of reasons

  • birth rates are falling in China,

  • besides the fact that there just

  • aren't that many women around.

  • According to state-run media,

  • the cost of raising a child is at an all time high.

  • But China's population is getting old.

  • And it's so big of a problem,

  • Chinese leaders can't continue to ignore it.

  • Which gives you an idea of how bad the situation is.

  • I mean, you know the Great Famine,

  • where 30-45 million people died?

  • Chinese authorities today still call the Great Famine,

  • the Great Leap Forward.

  • So yeah, dealing with reality

  • is not the Communist Party's strong suit.

  • The One Child Policy has been replaced

  • which the slightly more liberal Two Child Policy.

  • But birth rates are still falling.

  • So the Party has been pushing for women

  • to start pushing out babies.

  • The popular narrative has gone from

  • 'delayed motherhood is beneficial for women's health'

  • to 'pregnancy during university

  • improves employment chances in the future.'

  • 'Painless abortion' ads were seamlessly replaced by

  • 'painless childbirth' ads.”

  • As this state-run People's Daily article says,

  • Giving Birth Is Not Only A Family Matter

  • But Also A National Issue

  • That must be why factory owners

  • were required to monitor their female workers' menstruation.

  • Just to be clear, that's not a joke.

  • I don't know why you would think that's a joke,

  • but that's what actually happened.

  • So it might not be too much of a stretch

  • to say that someday soon,

  • women in China will face a new baby quota

  • this time not limiting how many children she can have,

  • but how many she'll be required to produce for the state

  • They just got to be breed ready.

  • So what do you think?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • And before you go,

  • now is the time I answer a question

  • from a member of the China Uncensored 50-Cent Army

  • fans who support the show

  • with a dollar or more per episode

  • through the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Benjamin Jull asks,

  • Has the air pollution in Beijing

  • improved at all recently?”

  • Great question!

  • As I'm sure everyone watching knows,

  • Beijing has gotten a reputation for bad air.

  • In fact, crazy bad levels of pollution.

  • And Beijing isn't even the worst.

  • That article mentioned,

  • that on a scale of 0-500,

  • Beijing got a 755. In some areas,

  • it's even reached 1000.

  • So the Chinese Communist Party

  • launched a war on pollution.

  • Anyone found breathing air

  • was immediately executed.

  • But seriously,

  • I could do a whole episode

  • on China's War on Pollution.

  • But according to a recent study,

  • Beijing is now no longer among the world's

  • 100 most polluted cities.

  • Granted, 57 of world's 100 most polluted cities

  • *are* in China.

  • But Beijing is not among them.

  • So is China winning the war on pollution?

  • Maybe not.

  • Thanks for you question.

  • If you'd like to hear your question

  • It's less than the cost of your daily cup of coffee.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell,

  • see you next time!

Chinese has a major shortage of women,
