And didn’t the breakdown of the family start with contraception?

You are right. Historically, data shows that women "attempt" suicide several times as often as men do, but men succeed much more frequently than women.

Recognizing that you are an indispensable element of God’s plan, having your own plan, and taking responsibility for your actions are what keep men from the abyss.

This is what separates men from, well, everything else.

There was a movie quote once that was funny and brutally honest all at once.

Woman: “Why is it you write women so well?”

Melvin: “I think of a man, then I take away reason and accountability.”

Some women bridle at this, and then I point out that only a gender that looks at their exclusive capability of creating a human life to be a debilitating liability requiring homicide as a mitigating right guaranteed by the constitution, as if the ability to give the child up for adoption never existed.

Not that hard to figure out...40+ years of unchecked PC indoctrination TV, movies, music, education system, government, etc....

The progressive agenda is to undermine all traditional values/faiths through (mind)controlling the NEXT generation, and even though many of their followers know it to be wrong and eventually bad for a civil society, they go along with it(cutting off ones nose to spite ones face), as they've been convinced it's a victory against ..."those other folks"...and therefore THEIR victory.

When humans act against the rules/edicts of nature...more often than not, there are consequences(bad ones).

Rule For Radicals is the Bible for progressives...and has proven very effective.

Should have listened to Joe McCarthy and heeded his/others warnings...probably too late now.

"Youth has been served!"(garbage)

...garbage in...garbage out.

We sent millions of our young men off to war in the 1940s. They saw their friends being blown apart. They saw the devastation of war. They came back somewhat disillusioned.. Then, along comes Hugh Heffner. He tells men, “This is the ideal woman”. She’s beautiful, takes her clothes off at the drop of a hat, and puts no anchors on you. The natural reaction to this was the feminist movement. The natural reaction to the feminist movement is this withdrawal of men. Fix the first problem....a distorted view of women.

“But what is a man to do when he does love and care for his wife and child the best he knows how, tries to maintain a Godly home, works hard to support his family, and after over 20 years together his wife leaves him for another man?”

My woman friend worked while her husband went to grad school and supported them both. A few years later, he comes home and says he is in love with his secretary and is leaving.

A few months later, he comes back and says he made a big mistake and wants to come back. She says no way. She is now happily married with 2 kids.

Horny men should be more discriminating and seek women who have the qualities they want in a wife. Unfortunately, they are often looking for one thing and deluding themselves about the qualities they want long term. I suppose the same is true of women.

I guess I was just saying that the Left has long had a War on White Males.

The Left is happy about these numbers.

Perhaps that’s what you were inferring.

“How many of these men had decided to kill themselves because they could no longer see their children, had a broken relationship, or were involved in a bitter divorce?” she asks.

Does anybody see the real problem here? When women are the victims of discrimination en masse, they stand up en masse and fight it. When men are the victims, they just take it and take it and take it until they can't take it anymore.

I know men here will blast me because of the "lack of sympathy" I have for men who have committed suicide, but where have you been while all of this was happening, and why have you allowed it to get to this point?
