Europe's Wave of Migration Brought Too Many Men
"There’s a lot of interesting data on Europe’s wave of refugees in Pew’s latest report. But here’s a piece of information that is not so much interesting as disturbing: Only 27 percent of those refugees are female. In every age group, from nearly every country of origin, women are greatly outnumbered. And the difference is even more pronounced for immigrants from Africa, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. Gambia, Bangladesh and Pakistan, for example, sent virtually no women at all. Over all, refugee men outnumber refugee women nearly two to one."
Gee, I wonder why?
"I am, as I have frequently noted in this column, a big fan of immigration. But cultures, particularly homogenous cultures, do need some time to absorb and assimilate the migrant flows. Last year’s refugee wave strained both the political and social systems of many countries. Increasing it by half again, or a third again, in short order, might bring those systems to the breaking point."
Me too, Megan, but this is not the typical immigration culture, this is a mostly feral young men of military age who seem to have an agenda, and who have none of the markers of civilized people. Plus, as you note, the EU is a rigid, homogenous culture. Europe also has only a rudimentary history of immigration, but an extensive history of emigration. Even the US would have serious problems digesting a significant numbers of these "refugees."
I suspect that until the Islamic reformation finally makes headway, Europe will have its hands full with a buttload of young feral males.
