LITTLE BOYS LOST
Statistics have been floating around about more women than men pursuing higher education, young women enjoying "higher levels of success" than young men and fewer men valuing marriage and family as much as women. The reason, according to Fox News writer Suzanne Venker, isn't that the achievements of women have made men less valued:
It has pissed them off. It has also undermined their ability to become self-sufficient in the hopes of someday supporting a family. Men want to love women, not compete with them. They want to provide for and protect their families – it’s in their DNA. But modern women won’t let them.
On a personal note - I say "I'll let you!! I will give up my dead end boring stupid job that I do so our family can have medical benefits!! Provide for me! Protect me! I'm all in."
Got that out of my system.
I am not one of those modern women of which she speaks, I know she is speaking of young women who have managed in ONE generation to twist male DNA into shreds due to efforts to educate themselves and be economically and socially independent. I suppose my generation started it by saying to our daughters: You can be anything you want when you grow up you just have to get a good education and work hard. And when it comes to having a family, well, there are going to be hard choices to make.
Wow - who knew how powerful we were? We wanted our daughters to be able to support themselves in case they didn't marry or theirs was one of the 50% of marriages which ended in divorce - and BOOM we changed men from loving, protective providers to slackers.
I can't wait for all the lovely women in their 20's and 30's to just quit their jobs, buy some cookbooks and dusting cloths and through the power of "surrendering to their femininity" magically turn all those gamer guys into productive members of the working class ready with a ring. Paying rent in the meantime may be an issue - but hey, anything to help the guys find their way back to their true nature...
