Asian Girl Power

Two studies published in the last year suggest that Asian-Americans–of Chinese, Indian, and Korean descent–prefer having boy children, and there may be a growing trend among us to get male progeny through sex-selection procedures (in vitro and sperm sorting) and even abortion.

We don’t know how sound these findings are, but we’ve seen this cultural bias in play, in our own families and in others’. To which we say:

(No Asian Girls = No DISGRASIAN = Sadness and Despair.)
