China bans interracial marriages

Only for women, for now, as a result of the One-Child Policy:
The Supreme People’s Court of China today passed legislation that will ban Chinese women from marrying non-Chinese men, with the law coming into effect at the beginning of 2018. The policy had been fiercely debated for a number of months before it finally won approval from the required number of legislators earlier today. Civil rights groups in China have condemned the restriction, pointing out that it discriminates against women by still permitting males to enter into interracial marriages.

“We strongly urge the People’s Court to reconsider this new law, and repeal the legislation before it comes into force.” A small group of protesters staged a rally outside the courthouse in central Beijing today, but were soon dispersed by authorities. Following decades of the one-child policy, China is now faced with a shocking gender imbalance – for every girl below the age of 18 in China, there are now three boys. “The law was introduced in order to promote social harmony,” commented one of the People’s Courts legislators. “We need to ensure there are enough Chinese women available for marriage; otherwise there is a high probability of increased levels of rape and other violence.” One of the more controversial aspects of the new law is the fact that Chinese men are not banned from marrying women of other races. “Because we have such a shortage of women in China, we need to make sure Chinese men have as many opportunities as possible to find a bride.”

UPDATE: Or not. Apparently the story is a hoax.

Got my Chinese wife just in time! Take that Chinese males!

I don't really see the tie to anti-globalism here. If the goal is maximizing bride oppos for Chinese men, China is going to have to look abroad (!) for some Sabine women, not just chain the locals.

I foresee a special trade agreement with Nigeria. In exchange for Chinese capital investment, the Nigerian government contracts with Boko Haram to ship Nigerian schoolgirls to China.

This also unites the bottom slots on the interracial attractiveness totem poles that Steve Sailer talks about occasionally (black women + Asian men).

Win-win-win.

They've got it backwards. Mothers are the vectors of culture. They should fear Chinese men siring children with non-Chinese women, who will raise them according to their own culture, rather than the opposite.

But by non-Chinese, do they mean non-Han? Does this cover marriages between the Han and the 55 officially recognized minority groups?

Fake story. can't find anything in Chinese and this would be big news in China. Looks like a satirical news site.

Cluttermonkey said...

Well someone got trolled. However, the best satire is only a slight exageration of reality.

Revelation means hope said...

The tip off of this being fake should have been "China is now faced with a shocking gender imbalance – for every girl below the age of 18 in China, there are now three boys."

There is a sex imbalance, but come on, that is Jack Chalker Well of Souls levels of imbalance there....

how would a 'Supreme Court' 'pass legislation'?

that article fails the basic smell test of "how does that make any damn sense?"

must be Vox trying to lay false trails about how gullible he is.

@bob k. mando

The courts legislate stuff here in the USA all the time, so I don't see what would keep them from doing so in an official Communist dictatorship.

China will just do what all other cultures have done when they have too many men: invade their neighbors. They'll probably start with N. Korea as this would be easy to justify and least likely to spark outrage. Then on to Japan. If this isn't enough suddenly they'll be a reason to go after Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar.

Of these Thailand would be easiest as they have rolled over to pretty much anyone who shows up on their borders. Here's how that invasion would pan out. Chinese tanks/apcs and troops show up in Chiang Mae. Troops meet no resistance and instead find several thousand half naked women holding cold beer for them. In the morning the Chinese army awakens to near fatal hangovers, and a slowly spreading rash in their nethers wondering where all their money went. In other words: An ordinary Tuesday in the Kingdom.

no, they "make rulings".

when they make rulings that invert the plain meaning of the law we refer to that colloquially as "legislating from the bench" ... which should result in instant impeachment and suspension from the bar but almost never does.

they're still not actually writing or passing new legislation.

what the article is talking about is an entirely new-from-scratch law without attempting to reference previous law or ruling precedents.

most nations around the planet have adopted the English / American practice of separating the creation of new law ( legislation ) from the administration of that law ( judiciary ).

therefore, on a practical basis, the article makes no sense within the very first sentence.

i do notice that Glenn Reynolds ( Professor of Law / Instapundit ) also got suckered by this ... which i find hilarious.

I wonder if China was trying to troll the AltRight. Maybe we're on their radar.

@Remo
The idea of the Chinese Army getting the package in Thailand is funny, but given that Chinese men are quiet types who keep to themselves, I instead imagine that they'll let the hikikomori phenomenon take care of the excess men as it's doing in Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan.

VFM #7634 said...

Here's an example from Taiwan:

Taiwan's 'home boys' don't click with women

"Taiwan is not alone. Japan, Hong Kong and the fast-growing areas of coastal China all have their own versions of home boys."

There's a growing epidemic of Omegadom, and it's hitting East Asia hard enough that it may render the sex ratio imbalance irrelevant.

It was a very good spoof. Very believable. No shame on being taken in on it. I live there and I bought it.

liberranter said...

Could we do the reverse of this here and MANDATE the marriage of American women to men of other races, as long as the men 1) are foreign and 2) take their American "prizes" back to their own countries? Heck, we should even modify the anti-polygamy laws to make an exception that permits these foreign guys to marry multiple American wives -again, as long as they promise to take them all home with them.

You claim the story is a hoax but you also have not provided any evidence to confirm the story. Are we stuck in the conficius and mao zidong methodology of acceptance where we say things without evidence? We have no means of confirming if this is true or not. But the article did revealed that the law will be enacted in 2018. We just have to observe and see what will happen in 2018.

Who in his right mind would want to marry a Chinese female anyway?

Angry Midwesterner said...

I would have called CCP master shitlords if that actually came to pass. The people on the streets and the party do see an imbalance in the sexual market. Since Chinese people hate blacks so much, you won't be seeing guys fleeing to Africa for a bride. We live in such a ridiculous day and age that a story like this would make sense too.

Sean Carnegie said...

@LBF

Let's see: slender, feminine, age very well, trainable, generally very domestic if raised rurally, almost always have and keep hair long.

Nope, can't see why.

Laguna Beach Fogey said...

I suppose Chinese women are great if you're a Gamma and you like your women sickly-pale, skinny, bad teeth, rude, moonfaced, and Asian.

pdwalker said...

LBF,

Yes, as opposed to the loud, obnoxious, overweight, tattooed, feminist, cock carouselled, unfeminine, short haired, over-entitled bitches that white women have become.

oh wait, am I speaking in gross over generalizations?

Joshua Sinistar said...

This story must be fake. Passing a law like this in China is like passing a law of gravity. In China, like every other Far Eastern Nation, you are either Chinese or not Chinese. Even a Japanese or Korean Great Grandfather makes you not Chinese. In the Far East you are either 100% or not at all. Passing a law like this is superfluous to Ancient Custom and Family Pride.

I lived in Thailand for a few years and now live in China and yes the bulk of my post was an attempt at humor. In all seriousness if China did decide to deal with their young men problem the first target would likely be Japan. The propaganda against them has been maintained at a fever pitch for years now and if you ever turn on CCTV you will ALWAYS find a soap opera or movie set during WW2. The estimated numbers of dead/raped/mutilated in Nanjing and other cities/provinces has continued to rise over the years.

Now to your point yes - many Chinese men especially in University are much more like the grass eaters in Japan than they are Viking types. The perverse Western notion of romantic love has swept the younger generation like a plague and the divorce rate has spiked because of the illusion that if you aren't feeling "in love" you must not be. China is a few decades behind the West in many respects but the outcome will be very different as our cultures are not at all the same. My guess is that they'll reach for some kind of war to thin the numbers but that is just a guess. With all the construction workers now out of work, with no farms to go home too, China is looking at a crisis in the near future IMHOP.

Remo - Vile Faceless Minion #99 said...

And yes the story is quite fake. China wouldn't be passing new laws on June 8 as this is the dragon boat festival which is a recognized celebrated national holiday. No government types work on that day or the following Friday but they do get to make up the Friday by working on Sunday.

But they don't need to. All they have to do is invite American college graduate women to participate in a fully funded "year abroad". Much cheaper and more effective.
