Most of criminal young men in the news today, we created. Step 1: We made K-12 education primarily (if not exclusively) about the thriving of girls (as we made up for past neglect). Look at dropout data. amazon.com/s?k=raising+ca…
Step 2: We worship egalitarianism as if it can save us from the reality of disparities, so we're making everything as co-ed as possible. Why? Because we believe the the myth that all disparity is evidence of discriminatory exclusion. amazon.com/Boy-Crisis-Boy…
Step 3: We act like fathers don’t really matter & *then* we don’t provide them nearly the amount of care, resources, and celebration as mothers. Nearly every mass shooter to every perpetrator of sexual assault had a father problem (there's data on this). amazon.com/Do-Fathers-Mat…
Step 4: We want to naively believe the myth that testosterone does not affect how brains or muscles function so we lead boys and girls to believe the real differences that exist are merely anatomical. amazon.com/Male-Brain-Bre…
Step 5: We act like boys don’t, at times, need specific male-only spaces(like girls do), for nurture, moral formation, inspiration, connection, encouragement, & support, then slag guys off when they retreat to video games, for example, to meet those needs. amazon.com/Deep-Secrets-F…
Step 6: Therefore, when uncared for, disconnected, un-nurtured, unfathered, ignored guys, who can’t focus in girl-centered schools, turn into bullies, start showing signs of negative aggression and violence, are pre-maturely medicated, join gangs, abuse drugs & alcohol,...
Step 6: ...commit crimes, join white nationalist groups, become abusive cops, sexually assault women, become wealthy & traffic women (and find evil men to join them), become addicted to pornography, school classmates, commit suicide, produce #MeToo-related pain & trauma, . . .
Step 6: . . . and so on, we throw up our hands and say, “what’s wrong with men? Masculinity is toxic. We need a new Gillette ad, etc...." forbes.com/sites/charlesr…
Conclusion: Honestly, what did we expect when the solution to abusive hegemonic masculinity turned into an opportunity to neglect boys, discourage fatherhood, dismantle masculinity only, etc. instead of making masculinity virtuous as a good?
Exertive masculinity has been recast as a "toxic" evil to be eradicated rather than a virtue to be properly celebrated, cultivated, and formed because virtuous aggression, fighting for good things, sacrificial empathy, and so on, make the world better for all of us.
America, we get the men we deserve. A tough truth for 2019: elementary age guys through high school are in real crisis. This explains corruption, prison numbers, & our suicide rates. You can't expect virtue & greatness in a context of contempt & neglect. amazon.com/Fine-Young-Man…
