Census problem? The elimination of the concept of male superiority over women in the mainland has led to a heated debate

On April 28, the Chinese Communist Party released a population plan that calls for the elimination of the concept of male superiority over female and the transmission of the family line, and the improvement of girls’ education level. This issue has triggered a lot of discussion among mainland netizens. Some netizens pointed out that there seems to be a big problem with the seventh census, namely the disparity between men and women.

On April 28, the State Council of the Communist Party of China released the “China Action Plan against Human Trafficking (2021-2030),” which states that the villagers’ autonomy statutes and village rules and regulations should be improved to protect women’s rights and interests and promote gender equality, and that men and women should be equal, eliminating the concept of male superiority over women and the succession of generations, and raising the education level of girls.

The matter has sparked heated debate on the mainland network. As of 7 p.m. on the 29th, the phrase “eliminating the backward concept of male superiority over female and succession” had 380 million reads on Weibo.

Some netizens say that the official move is probably due to a problem with the seventh population census, namely the disparity between men and women.

“I really want to know how disparate the ratio of men to women is in this census.” “It seems that we will not see the real data of the seventh census.” “The seventh census is almost a month past and still not out, it looks like a big problem.” “Curious about how scary the results of the seventh universal are, and when Chinese women can break free from the male gaze.”

Many other netizens cited the current situation of male superiority over women.

“Before giving birth: both men and women are the same. After having a daughter: it’s okay it’s the first child anyway.” “There are some fine thought will make people uncomfortable points, such as: your family gave birth to a daughter ah, then you can easily do not have to buy a house.” “Being in Maoming, Guangdong, the transmission of a son must be born is simply the local invisible law.”

“Looking for a job to male not female is considered male superiority?” “Daughters as a gold mine to raise sons son pit old pit sister, this kind of thing is endless.” “The whole society is, 10 leaders 9 men.”

“The official microblogging site of Dr. Ding Xiang said that China is one of the countries in the world with the most serious imbalance in the sex ratio of babies born.

“The situation is even more pronounced among the second and third children. According to the sixth census of the National Bureau of Statistics, in 2010, for every 100 female babies born to Chinese families, there were 130 male babies born. The situation is even more serious for three children and above, for every 100 female babies born, there are 158 male babies. With such an exaggerated sex ratio, we can’t help but ask: Where are all the female babies that should have been born?”

Another netizen blamed the Chinese Communist Party’s family planning for the imbalance of the gender ratio.

In addition, there are also netizens who said, “First of all, the divorce cooling-off period should be abolished, and the representative who proposed it should apologize to the whole country, and the marital violence should be punished severely; rural girls should be given their own house bases; women should have the right to change their children’s surnames after divorce; all gender labels on recruitment positions should be punished, and there should be fair competition between men and women starting from civil servants. If even civil service recruitment is gender discrimination, then do not expect companies to comply with the fair; husband and wife maternity leave and mandatory; crackdown on the prevalence of 996 companies, increase penalties to eliminate overtime; resist transfer.”
