* In China, male children currently outnumber females about 117 to 100 in the recent generations. Since the beginning of the One-Child Policy in 1978, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_women_of_Asia female fetuses have been aborted more often than males and newborn girls are sometimes killed or abandoned]]; this is the result of the law interacting with the tradition in China is that the men carry the family name and take care of their parents in their old age. This is especially common in rural areas where traditional social norms may be the only safety net for the elderly. It is significantly less common in wealthier urban areas, where women have much greater access to education and jobs and their contribution to the household is viewed more equitably. The rural shortage of women has made it increasingly difficult for young men to find wives and has sometimes resulted in internal and international human trafficking because families are willing to pay substantial sums for a bride, consenting or not. The Chinese government has been working to raise the status of female children and end these practices but attitudes change more slowly than laws.

* Ubiquitous in agricultural animal husbandry, in which female animals' ability to produce milk, eggs, and offspring routinely gets male livestock converted into meat at a younger age than their female counterparts. The exceptions are the valuable "stud" males, whose high-quality genes ensure them a long and pampered lifespan, long after most of the lower-grade males of their generation have been sent to the slaughterhouse.

* ''The Rainbow Cadenza'' has men outnumbering women seven to one, and women are drafted into prostitution for three years.



*The Rainbow Cadenza by J. Neil Schulman is a rare example of ''both at the same time;'' It all starts cheap sex-selection technologies, specifically an over-the-counter drug called Adamine which suppresses the production of X-chromosome-carrying sperm, ensuring that any child a man sires while taking the drug is male. In anticipation of World War Three, first-world nations approve tax incentives supporting the use of the drug, hoping to breed a critical mass of soldiers to be drafted. As a result, an entire generation almost totally eschews bearing female children. In the aftermath, males outnumber females by a factor of 20. And many of them have PTSD. And do to the remaining women what crazy, violent men have done throughout history.\\
To counter this, the newly-created world government alters the draft; similar to the current laws for soldiers, all able-bodied women are conscripted for state-sponsored prostitution from the ages of 18-21 - any male that has paid their taxes and has not been convicted of a crime can make use of them in a controlled environment. After they finish their service, "veterans" receive a generous enough stipend that they can live comfortably without having to work, and their votes in political matters are worth 20 of a heterosexual man's(while a homosexual or an asexual's are worth 10, as they do not make use of the service). A democratic majority of women support this system as it promotes them to a status enjoyed by South African whites under apartheid a la ''Anime/ArmitageIII'', with the "draft dodging" remainder becoming "Touchables" with no recognized human rights.\\

-->''Rainbow Cadenza'' started out by asking the question if parents who were willing to have their sons drafted to go to war to have their asses shot off would be willing--if the same utilitarian rationale was given--to have their daughters drafted to have their asses banged. If my previous sentence shocks and revolts you, then you'll know how shocking and revolting I find the draft for ''any'' purpose.

* On the ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' planets of Grayson and Masada, women outnumber men three-to-one, but it's the men who are in charge. This is largely due to a religious beliefs that held women were incapable of bearing serious responsibility in men's areas. Graysons, at least, had become fairly chivalrous about this in recent years, whereas the Masadans were full-on {{He Man Woman Hater}}s.

* Because the Dwarves are over two thirds male, Dwarves women in ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10473466/1/Fate-be-Changed Fate Be Changed]]'' are kept cloisetered away and pampered by their brothers, fathers and uncles. No Dwarf would even think to harm or mistreat a woman, and the Comapny is outright horrified to learn Willowyn's father threw his own daughter in the streets because she wasn't ladylike.

* In [[http://www.valsalia.com/ Out-of-Placers]] yinglets have five to seven males for every female. Their enclaves are more-or-less ruled by matriarchs who decide which males get the honor of mating with the females. Though most other females are secluded from the rest of the enclave and there's a council of patriarchs with some not insignificant degree of power.



* Yinglet society in ''Webcomic/OutOfPlacers'' appears to be a Type One (rare species enslaved) as each enclave keeps their rare females closely guarded in their midst but the protagonist soon learns that they're actually a Type 2 society with the females using the power of their central position and their control over breeding to effectively run things from behind the scenes.

* The two warring factions in the GirlsLove SpaceOpera ''Webcomic/{{Angels 2200}}'' appear to have chosen opposite versions of this trope following the male {{gendercide}}: The Colonials appear to have opted for version one with males in command positions while the [[LadyLand Terrans]] appear to have opted for version two since none of their males have ever appeared at all, which is not surprising, considering the Terrans created the [[TheVirus Gendercide plague]] in the first place. One Terran pilot claims that her father didn't die in the plague: he abandoned his family to become a playboy afterwards

* In the ''GarrettPI'' Verse, goblins produce five or six male offspring per female born. Goblin culture is too macho-oriented to settle for polyandry, gay relationships or equal rights, so one-third of their males die in fights over females before age 23. Female goblins with any sense tend to ditch their husbands and run off to the human lands, first chance they get.
