Mao Tried To Dump Thousands Of Women

If you thought Nixon’s Watergate tapes seemed scandalous, just wait until you see what his right-hand-man, Henry Kissinger, was talking about. The State Department has been hiding a transcript of a conversation between the Chinese dictator Mao Zedong and the former Secretary of State for 35 years. What do two dudes talk about, no matter the cultural difference? Women, of course! And the totalitarian wanted to talk some smack on the record. “You know, China is a very poor country,” Mao said. “We don’t have much. What we have in excess is women. So if you want them, we can give a few of those to you, some tens of thousands.” Kissinger responded, “It is such a novel proposition. We will have to study it.” Oh no he didn’t! Thankfully, America didn’t for too many reasons to list, but I bet China, which has still got all its Communism and its women, is glad that deal didn’t go through. The country is now undergoing its own sexual revolution. And when it comes to the head count, the more the better. [CNN]
