The Weaker Sex. Is xx > xy?

I've referred to the imbalance of eligible women to eligible men as, "an unintended consequence of feminism". Now the data is pouring in from places you might least expect. Studies now show that this shift is happening worldwide; in rich and poorer nations alike, and its starting at a very early age.

In an article published March 7, 2015 in The Economist titled, "The weaker sex" there are multiple studies cited and referenced. The most damning of those reports were published on March 5th by the OECD, a Paris-based rich-country think-tank. The OECD deems literacy to be the most important skill that it assesses, since further learning depends on it. In reading, where girls have been ahead for some time, a gulf has appeared. In all 64 countries and economies in the study, girls outperform boys. And sure enough, teenage boys are 50% more likely than girls to fail to achieve basic proficiency in any of maths, reading and science.

The article goes on to point out that boys put less time into their studies than girls do, and as higher education has boomed worldwide, women’s enrollment in universities has increased almost twice as fast as men’s. The same OECD report states that women now make up 56% of students enrolled, up from 46% in 1985. By 2025 that may rise to 58%.

What does it all mean? The article points out that in the past women have typically married men in their own social group or above. It goes on to say that if there are too few of those men available, many women will have to marry down or not at all. For those who don't wish to settle, they're going to have to employ every resource they can muster to outmatch their female counterparts who are looking for same kind of man.
