The selective abortions and abandonment of female babies in China has led to a rash of preteen Burmese girls being trafficked across the border and sold into marriage. According to the Independent, there are 30 million more men than women in China at this point, and men "near the Burmese border have begun to buy girls as young as 10 to become the brides of men old enough to be their fathers or even grandfathers." Burma is rife with human rights abuses, and the average income is about $400 a year. This kind of thing makes all those wedding shows filled with spending orgies seem extra disgusting, right?
