Default Creepy Chinese database listed “BreedReady” women

Shades of The Handmaid’s Tale here: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-...ms&pfmredir=sm

Quote:
It is still unclear what "BreedReady" actually means — some observers speculated it could be a poor English translation of women who are at a "child-bearing age", while others argued it meant women who "have children".

According to Mr Gevers's findings, the youngest woman in the database was just 15 years old, while the oldest was 95. About 82 per cent of the women lived in Beijing.

The database also showed that nearly 90 per cent of the women were single and their average age was 32.
Not actually sure where to put this.

I'd have gone with NFBSK Gone Wild myself as that is usually where things that are Not For British School Kids (ie, snogging, rogering and the like) go.

Roll eyes

If you haven't yet foolishly clicked on the OP (as I did), my suggestion is don't bother. The parsimonious explanation for this story is that 'Dating Site Includes a Badly-Translated Word' is not a click-inducing headline.
