"I heard all the stories growing up - unheated apartments in the Pacific Northwest, packing crates as furniture, buying meat in bulk and eating the same thing for months. But there are bigger forces at work that means I'm living those stories…"

"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…"

"Being raised by my Dad, I was taught that there are very few things that you absolutely must do, in order to be a real man. First is taking care of the family.. if you can't do that, you have no business having a family. Second, you need to be…"

"I'm not sure that immediately prior to WWII (1938 thru 1941) was such a good time.  The Great Depression hadn't completely run its course and jobs were not quite so available.  Even with the stimulus provided by the Feds the…"

"I think that part of it is that some (or many) of the young mothers want someone to love them unconditionally and that is what a child will do.  It isn't about the purpose of raising a child, it is about the love a child has for its…"

Penelope replied to Vic Navarro's discussion Fathers an Real Men
"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."

Jack Bauer replied to Vic Navarro's discussion Fathers an Real Men
"That's probably the real crux of it.  Men aren't in decline everywhere ... but, where they are, there will be hell to pay.  I don't think it has much to do with 'fortune', though. Two cultures running…"

""the last 60 years created the men we have today.." I think I misunderstood what you were saying.  If you mean that the hard times during WWI, the Depression, and WWII made the men we idolize (John Wayne, Chesty Puller, et. al.) then…"
