http://nma.tv We have a country-style song for you today, about one of the consequences of China's one-child policy: a massive gender imbalance in the country. The Chinese government imposed the one-child policy in 1979. It has prevented 400 million births and allowed China to limit its population growth much faster than most developing countries. But the one-child policy has also resulted in gender-selective abortions and female infanticide that have distorted the ratio of male to female births, with 118.1 boys currently born for every 100 girls. The natural ratio of boys to girls at birth is 1.05:1, according to UN figures. A Next Media Animation / Chris Davidson collaboration. LYRICS: They call me a little emperor of the one Child policy But stick around and you'll find what I've found it's not easy to be me See science made it possible to give birth to only boys Now everyone wants Y-chromosomes for their little bundle of joy. So there are no girls born, in China anymore I feel so forlorn, with nobody to keep me warm Confucian culture scorns daughters in favor of sons So there are no girls born and I'm doomed to be just one My parents chose me in utero to carry on the family name But if I can't find a bride I'll be carrying nothing but shame You gotta be tall, educated, and own your own house miss one out of three, you won't find a spouse So there are no girls born, in China anymore I feel so forlorn, with nobody to keep me warm Confucian culture scorns daughters in favor of sons So there are no girls born and I'm doomed to be just one You know they say it's still a man's world Mao says women hold up half the sky I don't know if that's true and I don't know what to do but without them I'm so lonely I could cry. There are no girls born in China anymore I feel so forlorn with nobody to keep me warm Confucian cultures scorns daughters in favor of sons So there are no girls born...and I'm doomed to be just one.
