Declining Population Growth

Postby Mr. Teg » 13 Aug 2010 08:53

A Japanese woman's role in society is to give birth, and "all we can do is ask them to do their best per head," said Hakuo Yanagisawa, Japan's former health minister. His remark, as reported by Bloomberg in 2007, drew criticism for being sexist, but it touches on one of Japan's most pressing issues: its rapidly aging and shrinking population.

If they quit giving head I bet they'll have a lot more babies. :wink:

Your words should be very short and to the point if you want to judge me without having been a witness yourself to some of the terrible things I've seen on them world wide interwebs.
