Why are there so many "failure-to-Launch Young Men" .. . .? . . .select the most likely reason . ..

"Failure-to-Launch" means young men living in their parent's basement (or something like the basement) instead of living on their own and are not employed or are under employed because of a lack of motivation or fear of failure . . . they may or may not have a girlfriend and have no ambition or desire to get married and start a family of their own . . . etc. . . .baby

Comments from Posters about Polls:

-------------
A failure to launch girl can move in with an older man or guy/girl with extra cash. Guys have less social mobility when they are POS.

Girls seem to pursue academia much more than previous generations. With added competition comes a raised bar. Add in the drugs and screens young men are vulnerable to failure and no motivation to pick up the pieces.

Every generation before the parents of the millenials had life or death shit to deal with on the daily.

World War 1
Great Depression
World War 2
Arms Race
Cold War
Vietnam

The generation of the parent's of the 15-30 year olds haven't had to do anything. They haven't had to learn to do anything but the corporate grind. Now it's about time. Their kids had no lessons to learn from. In a generation of instant gratification and excess how can one not expect apathetic nihilism to thrive?
-------------------
In the good old days fathers beat their sons bloody now it's illegal
I think they just don't hate their parents as much as previous generations did so they are not motivated to leave. If your dad hasn't broken your nose why run away?
-------------------

Everyone born after 1979 should be considered a different species... Lets call them HOMO Useless

-------------------

Boys need Men
Boys need Father's
Boys need guidance
Boys need to embrace what it means to be a Male and a Man of Good, GOD Honor and Commitment
.

-------------------

its not feminisms fault - it is that men who were so used to dominating the hell out of everything - including nature - finally had to play on an "even" playing field - they had to actually start COMPETING for jobs, and education, and respect, and power etc etc...


back in the 80's the foundation was stripped from the homes"the father" in his place the single mother was promoted,they turned the father into dead beat dads.they promoted a single mother that can do no wrong.so alot of lil boys grew up 1 with out the foundation,2 with a mother that was to busy leaping from man to man rather than making a family and allowing the father to do his role"teach,instill morals,work ethic" while the mothers role is to back up what father does and also nurture.so instead since mommy could'nt fill dads shoes the gov ran school system,t.v,movies,and the thugs down the street raised them....

----------------

We know we have lots of Boys but where are the Men?

----------------

Where is "Bad/Lazy/Incompetent Parenting"

----------------

BTW, even as a woman I think men get a horrible deal in the case of divorce. My brother had to pay out $5,000 a month when his wife dumped him. Then as a self employed his business went up and down until after 10 years it was dead.
She still hauled him into court, threatened with jail by the judge, and he did sell his house.
But a man loses EVERYTHING, his children in the morning, most of his income..if I were a man I would lose my mind with that kind of pressure.

-----------------

How about prescription medications and government dependency

-----------------

The #1 reason is institutionalized mediocrity. Go to a little league baseball tournament, every team gets a trophy whether they finished first or last. Every kid is told he is smart in school no matter how stupid he is. On down the line. They took the Special Olympics spirit and spread it to everyone.

That's elementary, middle and high school. That's when they pressure parents to medicate their kids.
I don't know one single kid where gov't dependency has a relationship to pharma

----------------

Most men settle with an average woman. But women always want the best they (think they) can get. By definition only few men can be "best". So in the end few men get all the women. It has always been this way, only in internet times these things are discussed in the open

---------------

The dichotomy of motherhood and lack of an active father.
On one hand we have welfare, don't give a shit where my children are moms.
At the other extreme, we have helicoptor moms who do not teach young men how to be responsible for themselves or their bad choices.
not my personal experience, just an example. I have a male friend who works in the courts, the example above is quite common. the dice are loaded in favour of women, if you know your opponent is holding all the aces, do you fold or go all in?

----------------

its not trust, its value. females are valued more, because they can be controlled, see how that works? females are much more malleable, easier pawns to move around, gte them to move and the males follow, only, the males are saying...f ck that!

----------------

Lots of evidence that the changes are potentially caused by Estrogen pollutants referred to as Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs). EDCs are found in products such as pesticides, prescription drugs, product additives, plastics, carpeting, furniture, detergents, synthetic estrogen in birth control pills, cosmetics and the list goes on and on.

Dr. Pete Myers, chief scientist at Environmental Health Sciences, said, "We have thrown 100, 000 chemicals against a finely balanced hormone system, so it's not surprising that we are seeing some serious results. It is leading to the most rapid pace of evolution in the history of the world."

From this blog: [link to friendinreach.spam]

Also, check out some of Dr. Tent's youtube videos, including The Killing Fields about 17 minutes into that video he talks about how the electromagnetic radiation (EMRs) from playing video games on your lap, heavy use of cell phones, etc. are changing our boys and making them more frail.

----------------

My theory is that we have made life too physically easy. When we don't have to physically work, like they did 100 years ago, to put food on the table and a roof over their heads people get depressed. Why? because their brain chemistry is off due to the lack of daily physical exertion.

----------------

An educated male with no job experience has absolutely no chance in this job market. He is over-qualified for unskilled labor such as fast food and he is under-qualified for skilled labor because there are many more experienced candidates in need of a job.

There used to be a starting place for this sector in semi-skilled blue collar labor, but that has dwindled due to the lack of manufacturing in the country. This sector of the population will not have their chance until the older generation starts retiring, which is another issue altogether since the retirement age keeps moving up.
Women do not feel the effects as significantly because they are treated as "minorities" in the workplace, especially in traditionally male roles.

----------------

I think women feel the need to prove themselves more. It leaves men confused about their own role in life. If women are more than willing to take on everything to prove "something" to "someone"...what's the man left to do but sit back and watch?

Its changing and impacting both males and females, leading to weight issues, cancer, infertility and more, however, I think it is impacting the male 'drive' as per your poll questions. Do guys spend much more time on video games, than girls, generally I see that in my family. If you're interested in reading more, Wikipedia has some statistics on EDC's lowering testosterone levels, fertility levels and even creating low blood sugar, which impacts energy and drive.

--------------

I'd say most men have completely given up on life in general and do anything to escape, because there literally is no other option. Seriously, what the fuck is the point in even trying? Either you try and fail, feel low about yourself, depressed...slowly go insane. Or you play video games or do drugs to escape. They are really the only two options I can see. If you do become "successful" you make lots of money to keep some bitch interested for a while until the money dries up or she finds someone better and she leaves with half of your shit.

--------------

Boys are more affected in every aspect. Starting with the majority of boys having no father/male role model at home. Schools expected to parent because mom's working due to no male at home. Couples allowed to file for divorce so easily leaving kids with no male in the home. See a pattern? It all comes down to fatherless homes. Girls follow their "do-it-all" mothers footsteps...boys grow up witnessing the women doing it all. Where does that leave them? Modern men don't know how to father, don't know how to take care of themselves, and expect the women to do it all just like they saw their mother do. Vicious cycle.

--------------

Too many xenoestrogens in our food and consumer products.
It delays puberty in boys while bringing earlier puberty for girls.
The boys are short on good testosterone due to the hormone disrupter.

--------------

Society is collective attacking heterosexuals, whites, and men... it is only natural for members of all three of these groups to turn their backs on society.

--------------

Maybe it's because they don't have a role to fulfill anymore...one day, I was sitting in a waiting room at an airport and I was people watching. I noticed alot of young men there and this thought occurred to me. Men, in the past, had a role to play. Be it the hunter, provider or protector, he was it. In our society today, it's not necessary anymore. Maybe that's why there's so many failure to launch young men? It made me sad to think that, but my opinion hasn't changed much in the 10 years since I first had the thought. We have to change that...men have an important role to play as well as women. They are essential to the balance of life.

-------------

3 generations now who have lived in total ease, nothing to define them, no great war, or depression. No rights of passage to manhood. Being a real man is a lost art.. a world of metrosexuals

-------------

The lack of Fathers in there kids life. I couldnn't wait to leave home, you know wine, women, an good weed. Men today have no balls. I blame this on lawyers and cops. Back in the day you got into a fight at least every other month. I mean no gun,or knives, just fists. Now if you raise your voice it's terroristic threating and jail. The man has been spade and neutered in todays world. I think their putting salt peter in the food, like in prison. I have two friends and they are saying the same thing, there kids are in their mid 20's and even 32 and they won't get jobs, just lazy I guess.

Being a guy I see many young men not living for anything but themselves. . . or are too afraid to risk anything which could make them uncomfortable or possibly fail. . . video games, porn, alcohol and drugs are crutches that numb them into accepting third place in life. . . .

Seems guys are much more likely to suffer the "failure to launch syndrome" than women (my theory is video games at too early an age has something to do with this . . .women seem more immune to it or simply are not interested). . . I saw this as men became less and less represented in many professional schools including law and medicine . . .

It is easier to never risk than to try and fail. . . we have a real problem with the future unless half of us don't step up and accept responsibility . . . I am afraid that is where we are headed. . . .many women are alone . . . I hope they can succeed without the support of most men. . . .peace

I say the economy as well as changing job structure has alot to do with it. Back in the good ol days ladies stayed at home and men worked decent paying factory jobs that didn't require any eduction. I would so love to work a high paying job that doesn't require hardly any eduction and I would like to stay at that job 30+ years and retire with a nice retirement package.

Why aim to be the best at anything when you get just as big a reward for finishing 31st as you do first? It's not worth the effort. To save a few hurt feelings, they destroyed a whole generation. I think they knew what they were doing, it wasn't a mistake.

My wife - on the other hand - makes money while having two degrees to my three, while I am bilingual with a background in law.

How about prescription medications and government dependency
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1043775


That's elementary, middle and high school. That's when they pressure parents to medicate their kids.

Most men settle with an average woman. But women always want the best they (think they) can get. By definition only few men can be "best". So in the end few men get all the women. It has always been this way, only in internet times these things are discussed in the open.
