"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…"

"There has been a loss of focus on what having a family and being a man means. Statistics are nice, opinions--everyone has one. A man needs to be selective in the spouse they choose, they need to have a plan for their family, and there must be…"

"Maybe there are "girls who are desperate for male attention," but most of what I've read from and about poor, unwed, young mothers is that they want love and a life's purpose - a child, not a man."

"I think it's good to look at the specifics.   On the one hand, the best of us are better than before, I think.  Feminism helped.  It told us it was OK for women to have careers and men to be involved with their children.…"
