Skip to comments.Parents, stop destroying the American male

I recently spent some time with a friend who has three children. My buddy, whom I've known since fifth grade, is a college-educated responsible guy who has never failed to do right by his family. When describing him, "well-rounded" comes to mind. He's masculine but not macho, sensitive but nowhere near maudlin, perceptive, intuitive, caring, compassionate. Like I said, well-rounded. His wife is as solid as a rock.
His oldest son, 40, never earned as much as a high school diploma, has had perennial problems with alcohol, and presently earns a living working in a record store. His youngest, another son, is rapidly approaching 30. Like his older brother, he's clearly intelligent and capable, yet he's barely supporting himself at menial jobs, still taking college classes, and has no sense of what he wants to do with his life. By contrast, my buddy's daughter, the middle child, is a go-getter. She's a top performer at her workplace and seems overall in command of her life.
For the first time in history, females are emancipating earlier and more successfully than males. This crop of young adult males is certainly shaping up to be the most underachieving generation of men (perpetual boys?) to ever inhabit the USA. I shared the following observation with a recent audience, "When one hears of an individual in their mid-30s who's still living at home or largely dependent on parents for support and has no clear sense of direction in life, it's almost always a male. It starts in high school, where nearly every video game addict is a male. In the adult world, women are graduating from college in larger numbers and are taking over a number of previously male-dominated professions." Everywhere, heads nodded.

The feminist movement ruined this nation. Yes, women deserve opportunities in education, equal pay and all that jazz....but to diminish the role of motherhood, promote the ‘Me Me Me’ mentality, obscure sexual ‘differences’.....oh my, the damage to our culture, values and families...is beyond belief.
How could women fall for this BS?
I agree - we women should be proud of the role nature gave us. Instead women have bought into a Huge Hefner fantasy. It’s just unbelievable to me. Free sex, kill the inconvenient result - no responsibility for the male - dress like a ho....women have devalued themselves and sex is a commodity now.
I think being a mother is an extraordinary privilege, not a burden, and should be honored.
