I seriously wonder how many young men have been prescribed medication to control their "ADHD" or whatever bullshit

And it profoundly fucked them up for life
I remember this kid I grew up with, his name was Jeffrey

His parents were separated, he was mostly raised by his Mom

His mom didn't like him, you could tell

And he was a very active kid
I remember listening to a conversation between his mom and my mom,

She took him to the doctor and they gave him some type of drug

I cannot fathom the mindset to put your fucking 7 year old son on sedatives, but such is the culture we live in
Jeffrey and I played Little League together,

he was a good player. He played catcher

No trouble focusing on anything that was physical

My Dad was PISSED when my mom told him that Jeff's mom had put him on medication
"Women that don't like men shouldn't be raising sons. He's never going to turn out right, he's not a thing to be controlled"

Later on Jeff would end up an alcoholic, meth addict

In and out of rehab
Modern education is Anti-Male, Anti-Boys

Making boys sit for hours, declaring them aberrant if they can't sit still

He never did any better at school,

I was in class with him, he'd zone out like all the other boys who were drugged up
Jeff would have made it just fine in a better learning environment

But thats modern education.

And an example of single mommy parenting gone wrong

Boys need fathers to become Men,

and movement and motion to be healthy boys
"If you turn a boy into a thing to be fixed, you raise a man into a thing to be used"
