I wasn't able to take part in the huge discussion about men's rights. Nor did i have any desire to join an already doomed thread that quickly attracted the most biased groups and was reduced to a "who can repeat his agenda the loudest" contest.
I hope the mods dont mind this new and fresh thread. This one is solely about the Children. The next generation that is growing up in a very different world.
I find this lecture very interesting and it raises a lot of concerns that even I ,a 25 year old, already encountered this trend. I was a minority in my Highschool. My class was focused on Math and we were 13 boys and 14 girls. Other classes that were focusing on History or Literature were as bad as 1:8 or even 1:10. Boys are turned off by the current educational system and take lesser and lesser part in the work force of many European, American and EVEN Middle Eastern countries like Iran. This is heralded as a huge success for women, but its victims are pushed to the side line and left to fend for themselves.
What really shocked me is how Colleges and Universities deal with the required Sports quotas. They simply cut funding for sports teams for boys/young males. Why is this allowed to happen? Why are male problems (clearly caused by femist laws) just allowed to contiue and disable entire generations?
This video gives a few really interesting answers.
Honestly who would society save 10 out of 10 times? A man or a woman? I find it really difficult to believe that there is a system focused on subjectification of women in which males die at a rate 20 to 1 at the work place. The system we have had for the last 20 000 years wasn't focused on subjication but rather on survival of humans. This survival often meant that men had to "suck it up" and "man up". This concept has been around for so long yet with the dissipation of the status of being a real man the desire to be a real man is slowing dying.
I just think it's naive to believe that killing of what makes men real men is fair and can only lead bad things.
NOTE: Dont derail the thread to stupid nonsense like the last ones.
The topic is clear : Do boys suffer from programs that were designed to end unfair treatment and what can we do about it?
