The Consequences of an Imbalance of Males

If a paternalistic culture adopts modern technology to increase the proportion of boys born there are consequences they may not have considered. In a culture where females are rare, what are the males without partners to do? Gay couples may become more prevalent (an anathema to these cultures), more prostitution, or polyandry or celibacy. To the degree of the success of the imbalance, many of these males will not reproduce. Sex selection is an odd form of delayed population control. So perhaps the best thing to do with such a prejudiced culture is just let it go voluntarily extinct.
