Girl shortage could cause rise in crime

Who knew? Apparently, according to cool science mag SEED,

"...over the next 20 years, in parts of China and India, there will be a 12 to 15 percent excess of young men—men who will have to remain single in societies that also place a high value on marriage. Because women will be able to select high status males to marry, the men who remain single are most likely to be members of the lower classes or those who are otherwise undesirable.

These unmarried, low-status males are the people most likely to be perpetrators of violent crime, the authors suggest. Previous research has shown a strong correlation between sex ratio and violence."

So girls, get out there and marry, for the good of society, and pay particular attention to the "lower class male", save him, save him from a life of crime!

Your nation thanks you.
