Did you ever have a choice about going to school or not, assuming you weren’t sick? No, me either. It just was. Oh we tried, but my father always said, “they wouldn’t be holding school today if they didn’t expect you to be there.” End of story. A recent article in American Thinker laments the movement of American society toward a fatherless America. In it a young cop relates to his older brother (the author) Lloyd Marcus, the unbelievable number of parents who call the police because their child refuses to go to school.
‘Boys will be boys’ is the phrase that once explained typical mischievous boys whether it was throwing rocks at passing cars or even at each other. Normal boys are reckless and rowdy, noisy and they love rough-house behavior. Not anymore, boy behavior is being beaten out of them. Young boys are being drugged so they don’t act like boys! This has gone on for a long time, but it’s even worse nowadays. Feminist organizations, encouraged by government policy are teaching young boys to be ashamed or guilty of their gender.
The #MeToo movement is just icing on the top. Boys (actually men of any age) have to be re-educated to prevent them from becoming a threat to the girls. Boys’ sexual manners must fit the feminist world, especially teenage boys. Gender lines are growing dim and transgenderism is discussed and encouraged, yes encouraged as early as pre-K.
Modern culture demonizes men across the board. Hollywood prefers the metro-sexual types (defined as a young, urban, heterosexual male with liberal political views, an interest in fashion, and a refined sense of taste). Barf! I think I prefer toxic masculinity. Sadly as a result of all this demonizing & de-sexing of men, many choose not to marry & have families. It’s too much trouble and there are too many traps laid out to “get them”. Government programs encourage single moms and let men off the hook too easily to where it’s now a given that just because you father a child (or several!) doesn’t mean you have to be responsible for that child. This is to everyone’s detriment. It means further breakdown of the nuclear family & society and there’s nobody to teach boys how to be men. It’s a forgotten skill set. Baby-daddies are missing from the scene and not just among minorities, it’s the new norm. Forty percent of children are born to unwed mothers. A snapshot of single mother families is not an encouraging one. Children cannot learn everything they need from their mother. And mothers need the support of men to help raise the children. Both boys and girls needs male role models for a lot of different reasons.
