SOCIETY: Male inequality- explained by an expert | Richard Reeves – video

Modern males are struggling. Author Richard Reeves outlines the three major issues boys and men face and shares possible solutions.

Boys and men are falling behind. This might seem surprising to some people, and maybe ridiculous to others, considering that discussions on gender disparities tend to focus on the structural challenges faced by girls and women, not boys and men. But long-term data reveal a clear and alarming trend: In recent decades, American men have been faring increasingly worse in many areas of life, including education, workforce participation, skill acquisition, wages, and fatherhood. Gender politics is often framed as a zero-sum game: Any effort to help men takes away from women.      

But in his 2022 book Of Boys and Men, journalist and Brookings Institution scholar Richard V. Reeves argues that the structural problems contributing to male malaise affect everybody, and that shying away from these tough conversations is not a productive path forward.

      “Is there a pause in Guyanese…”

      Well, Maria, it is clear that the demise of the site is imminent. At the moment, as you can see, only a handful of ageing regulars chime in now and then, sadly!

      Pitifully, here is one of the few remaining ageing, and in this instance illiterate, regs who completely misinterprets and misrepresents a factual statement, perversely claiming that the writer is calling for the demise of the site when in reality he is simply stating the poignant truth.

    The site was built by one man, managed by one man, he set the direction, he took it all in and made it into something, they are one and the same.You are a limp appendage…

      “You are a limp appendage,” writes a decrepit mind.

      Here’s someone referring to another man’s appendage, and not just his appendage but his limp (or flaccid) appendage.

      Sadly, that is what this dying space has descended to. One by one, the handful of intelligent folks visiting here have left, except a sprinkling of lowly basement dwellers.
