‘Uterine morality’

I had never heard of the term "uterine morality" until this week. At first I thought that it must mean a more traditional approach to sexual mores or perhaps something to do with innovative transplant surgery.

But no, it's a term coined on social media by some Chinese feminists to express their disgust at ugly children with ugly fathers. In short, it's a slogan for DIY eugenics. It might only catch on in China or Korea or India, where there is a shortage of marriageable young women. But it's an interesting sign of the times. Read about it below.
