The Gelded Age

Thanks to Jokah for pointing out this sign of our times:

White men (non-Hispanic) are four times as likely as Hispanic men and eight times as likely as black men (non-Hispanic) to undergo male sterilization. I suspect that in very few cases they do so for the same reasons Origen allegedly did, however!

White women are less than twice as likely as white men are to become sterilized. In contrast, Hispanic women are an order of magnitude more likely to sterilize than Hispanic men are and black women are over twenty times more likely to tie their tubes than are black men.
