What do you think about this article?


I have a strange counterargument. I call it "sexy". The point is that Asian and Indian men living in Western countries have very big problems in the marriage market, which is why they remain unhappy virgins, and having such men is not good for society. And it is not good that India is deprived of highly intelligent people - this even goes to the detriment of the West, because a poorer India is a source of headache for Western countries.
