It was a little scary to see my mom lose it like that, but I have to admit a certain thrill in having security called on her. Unfortunately I did not get my cinnamon bun as we were going to get them after the return, and got caught up in the boycott.
I’m actually surprise that women aren’t throwing fits of rage ALL the time. I’ve heard a lot about how girl babies are killed in China and India because they value boys more, but while I was doing a book report I came across a chart in a book (The Economist Pocket World in Figures 2006 Edition.) This chart is called “Most Male Populations”
Number of males per 100 females
1. United Arab Emirates 214
2. Qatar 206
3. Kuwait 150
4. Bahrain 132
5. Oman 128
6. Saudi Arabia 117
8. Jordan 108
9. Afghanistan 107
Faroe Islands 107
14. China 106
Papua New Guinea 106
17. French Polynesia 105
New Caledonia 105
I don’t know what’s going on in Greenland, but aside from them, all the top ones are arab or middle-eastern (and muslim), and the numbers are WAY higher than china. China is 106:100. United Arab Emirates is 214:100! Where did all the girls go? And if the slaughter of the females isn’t enough for you, why hasn’t anyone talked about maybe this is why all the men are so angry and violent in the middle east. And of course the rich and powerful men have lots of wives leaving even fewer for the rest, and homosexuals are executed, so how is this Israel’s fault? I’m not saying the men are mad because they don’t get women, but how can you have a peaceful society when you have that much testosterone in the population and no one to tell them to go to their rooms.
When we watch the news about the middle east I always wonder why they only ever talk with men and we almost always only see men on the TV, but now I know it’s because there AREN’T any women. How could this be and no one talks about it? The US defended Kuwait, and though people talked about how the women weren’t allowed to drive, why didn’t they talk about how they weren’t allowed to live? And Qatar (206:100), aren’t they our “allies”, and Saudi Arabia? Someone’s got a LOT of explaining to do.
PS. I checked out Andorra, and it’s a tiny European country and they live forever, so the 110 year old men are skewing things, and there aren’t very many people there (71,000). And the Faroe Island (pop 48,000) are some islands off of Denmark, and I guess the women chose the mainland over the sheep and fishermen.
PPS. I hope people comment on this one, because I’d really like to know where the girls went and what could be done about this.
