"You have hit the nail on the head about the current generation of young males moving into adulthood. This has been a major gripe of mine for many years, and a key factor in why, even now and when I was young, I preferred the company of older…"
"I'd have loved to. Unfortunately, while I was away at work making a living, boy-loathing feminist teachers and youth-group leaders bullied, browbeat, and shamed my sons and were not exactly themselves role-models for them. I didn't…"
