20. On the discussion on the 'dangers' of surplus men ...

This was set off in an alarmist paper, ‘A Surplus of Men, A Deficit of Peace’, published in 2002: ‘What are the likely domestic, regional, and perhaps even international repercussions if their growth of young unattached men is left unchecked? And state that ‘90% of all arrestees in 2000 were men. Another paper from 2010 links the rising incidence of rape and sexual harassment in China to the scarcity of women.

Hesketh however, argue that as yet, there is little evidence for this hypothesis. A study could find no evidence that unmarried men were especially prone to violence and aggression. Rather, the men were characterized as shy and withdrawn, rather than aggressive. In addition, reports of crime and disorder are not higher in areas with a known excess of young, single men.
