Its because you bitches are worthless. You want a man to be your slave. We don't want that. Life is a lot easier without having to put up with your shit.

The poll is leaning on economy, but for me it's a one parent or in today's standards a parent less home. Kids need direction by a Parent(s) and not by the school system or the federal government. "The family", in the terms we 40+ year old's grew up with is gone! Long gone!

Sad days we live in.

We live in a progressive society, they have done many things in the last 4 years with Obama at the head. Can't wait to see what it looks like at the end of 2016.

The young men have no direction because there is no family structure left. The federal government wants to be daddy and buy their votes.

Its not just kids shows
Most prime time sitcoms do the same thing
All men are shown as dumb idiots and all the women are shown as smart and successfull

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28107574


This is very true and very sad!! It is also why I don't watch modern sitcoms anymore. It started with Married with Children. I used to think that show was funny, looking back on the re-runs I now think it's sad. Maybe that's just mental maturity on my part kicking in.

 Quoting: George B
I think this generation has more "wants" than previous generations so, they may think it's harder to achieve those wants. For the most part, I see my generation as very materialistic, superficial, and self-centered. They are raising their kids to be the same or worse. My husband is a MAN, he feels if I have to work, he's not doing his job. Men like that are few and far between nowadays because so many women have lost their true value. They don't know how to make the role of a "stay-at-home" a job, they've become too egotistical to find satisfaction in the role they were designed to play . Feminism is the root of everything that's wrong with society today. SAD...
 Quoting: Melrox


Wow!!! You wouldn't be very welcome at many health spas . . . however, I think you have some very good points . . . the change of roles of women especially their almost mandatory entry into the workforce has had devastating effects on the family . . . however, why has this caused Young Men to throw in the towel but not women??peace
 Quoting: George B


I'll answer that and I know I'm going to take a lot of flack for it. But women are emotionally stronger than men. Men might be better equipped physically than women, but women are the emotional power houses. Why? because we embrace our emotions, we don't burry them. We learn from early childhood how to deal with them head on. Unlike men who are taught as boys to suppress them. Basically...when going gets tough, the men shut down. The woman find their independent spirit and keep fighting for themselves and their children.

Now with that said, I will also acknowledge the fact that men have been brow beaten to death by society. I.E. the work place, the courts, even their own homes. Many of them have been raised by single mother's and with no father or father figure to show them HOW to be a man, they're left to figure it out on their own or through super heros which is setting them up for failure, as most super heros have super natural powers. Something they do not. Or they will look to male celebrities. Now how much are they going to learn from men who seem to "have it all" and because of this, many of those celebrities have " the world owes me a living" attitude, because they had everything handed to them on a silver platter.

It boils down to this. Why have men become the second class citizens in our Western society? They CONTROL the government! THEY make the laws! What does this tell you?
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


personally i think we should all be working a 4 or 5 hour work day PERIOD! None of this 8 hour crap. which really eeks out to be around 10 when you include travel time and lunch. women having careers isn't the problem.

a lot of it has to do with sharing the responsibilities of the raising of the kids and houshold. if we all worked 4 or 5 hours a day and the ceo's made 12 million instead of 24 million and the company made a profit of 1 billion instead of 5 billion - then we could have a society where there was time enough for family, children, husbands to nurture their kids, and moms to follow their dreams.

having one should not mutually exclude the other. if we wree to stand up to the elite control of our lives, we COULD build a new world where more people worked, and more people were successful and happy.

My son will make a great husband. He's loyal, hardworking and knows the value of committed relationship. He can be lazy but only when he's unmotivated.
Men are like lions laying about in the heat of the african sun. That is ok.
But if a man cares for you you are his queen and you both bring your soul and value to the table.
You can put up with all kinds of stuff if you help each other.
 Quoting: DawaSatso


the women these days have no souls.the man brings his gifts to the table ie love respect,loyality,work ethic while the woman in todays terms brings I WANT WANT WANT. if he goes to work and puts in long hours,she is not there at the end of the day to comfort him and provide him rest,she is there demanding things and telling him how much he sucks for being gone all day.so he switches it up and stops working so much so he can spend time with her,then he becomes a no good lazy worthless"all you want is sex" scum bag.....yup your son will be broken soon...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35320550


That is quite a leaping presumption you make about ALL women which is just not true.
Having not met this little skank you have conjured up all by yourself in your own mind? Now that's crazy.

I even have the sense after a relationship that was a nightmare not to include ALL MEN in my perceptions cut out any creative reasoning unlike yourself.

It is definitely true women, especially young ones don't understand men at all or relate realistically. I agree with you there as I look back at the mistakes I made about giving a man space and quiet after thinking about a problem all day long.
Even though we both worked all day I had energy to discuss, he didn't, but I didn't understand that.
That is really basic and women don't get it.
Robert Bly said "give a man one sentence or two, more than that he will put a bag over his head and run away".

What you describe sounds like a woman/girl who was either not versed in healthy male/female discourse by her parents and didn't know any better.

But you can't assume everyone in the world is playing out the same script which will end the same way as yours.

 Quoting: George B


There is an agenda to emasculate men, and elevate women. Why? So that the women will leave the men. When this happens. The men are further emasculated in the courts. Now they have lost both their wives and their children. A man is wired to be the provider and the protector. When this is stripped away from him, what is left? Whenever a village is attacked in a war or battle, who do the attackers go for first? They kill the men first, because the men are going to protect their wives and children. If a couple is attacked, the man dies first, so that the attacker can have his way with the woman. That should tell you a LOT right there!

Tptb have a very nefarious and evil agenda for this country. To attack it within. To cause it to implode upon itself. For only then, will it be ripe for the taking or the reforming of it to their specifications.

It is quite simple, tptb are just targeting the walls that guard the fortress. ;0)

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.

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.

Because when women began to HAVE to work outside the home, men lost their purpose and their place in life.

Think of it this way. What state would the women in this country be in if men all of a sudden started having babies? How would they feel. Would they feel the need to continue to have children? What for, if the men are now doing it?? So what is there role now? This is how confusion is born and reigns supreme! When we change the roles that God has given us to play. A play must have a director, actors must have individual roles, or you have utter chaos. Same with a ship, a military unit or any other kind of analogy you can think of that has rank and structure. So must go the home!

Yes, I'm a female and I despise feminism. All it has done is make women have to work harder which results in them being way more grouchy and men being afraid to be real men.

This isn't the 50's. Young men have realized that there is no point in busting their ass to get a high paying job just so a woman can leach off of them.

If a guy can go through life on a low paying job, play video games/do things he wants to and be happy doing it...then more power to him.

I was dating a chick a few months ago who made more $ than I did but fully expected me to pay for our dates, buy her things, etc. It blew me mind and the relationship didn't last too long. Women bring men down. It's a sad reality but it's true.

 Quoting: George B


There is an agenda to emasculate men, and elevate women. Why? So that the women will leave the men. When this happens. The men are further emasculated in the courts. Now they have lost both their wives and their children. A man is wired to be the provider and the protector. When this is stripped away from him, what is left? Whenever a village is attacked in a war or battle, who do the attackers go for first? They kill the men first, because the men are going to protect their wives and children. If a couple is attacked, the man dies first, so that the attacker can have his way with the woman. That should tell you a LOT right there!

Tptb have a very nefarious and evil agenda for this country. To attack it within. To cause it to implode upon itself. For only then, will it be ripe for the taking or the reforming of it to their specifications.

It is quite simple, tptb are just targeting the walls that guard the fortress. ;0)

IMO it all started going downhill when living costs got so high most families need both parents to work.

Yes . . . I agree this is an important issue . . . but why boys being more troubled??coffee4
 Quoting: George B


Because when women began to HAVE to work outside the home, men lost their purpose and their place in life.

Think of it this way. What state would the women in this country be in if men all of a sudden started having babies? How would they feel. Would they feel the need to continue to have children? What for, if the men are now doing it?? So what is there role now? This is how confusion is born and reigns supreme! When we change the roles that God has given us to play. A play must have a director, actors must have individual roles, or you have utter chaos. Same with a ship, a military unit or any other kind of analogy you can think of that has rank and structure. So must go the home!
 Quoting: Lady Wolf


you said something that is key here.when women began to work outside the home.see women have been sold this thought that they need to be equal to a man outside the home and provide like a man.it's all bs and propaganda,notice how a man alone used to be able to provide plenty for his family while the mother stayed home to provide the love and care of the home?notice now how it takes both wife and husband working and the family hardly gets by on the pay.they cut pay back to where both man and woman HAVE to work in a family just to pay bills week to week.so through propaganda they doubled the work force.2 for 1 speicals...

What does ''failure to launch'' have anything to do with gender? I notice a lot of men vs woman here.

My son will make a great husband. He's loyal, hardworking and knows the value of committed relationship. He can be lazy but only when he's unmotivated.
Men are like lions laying about in the heat of the african sun. That is ok.
But if a man cares for you you are his queen and you both bring your soul and value to the table.
You can put up with all kinds of stuff if you help each other.
 Quoting: DawaSatso


the women these days have no souls.the man brings his gifts to the table ie love respect,loyality,work ethic while the woman in todays terms brings I WANT WANT WANT. if he goes to work and puts in long hours,she is not there at the end of the day to comfort him and provide him rest,she is there demanding things and telling him how much he sucks for being gone all day.so he switches it up and stops working so much so he can spend time with her,then he becomes a no good lazy worthless"all you want is sex" scum bag.....yup your son will be broken soon...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35320550


That is quite a leaping presumption you make about ALL women which is just not true.
Having not met this little skank you have conjured up all by yourself in your own mind? Now that's crazy.

I even have the sense after a relationship that was a nightmare not to include ALL MEN in my perceptions cut out any creative reasoning unlike yourself.

It is definitely true women, especially young ones don't understand men at all or relate realistically. I agree with you there as I look back at the mistakes I made about giving a man space and quiet after thinking about a problem all day long.
Even though we both worked all day I had energy to discuss, he didn't, but I didn't understand that.
That is really basic and women don't get it.
Robert Bly said "give a man one sentence or two, more than that he will put a bag over his head and run away".

What you describe sounds like a woman/girl who was either not versed in healthy male/female discourse by her parents and didn't know any better.

But you can't assume everyone in the world is playing out the same script which will end the same way as yours.

Close enough. But you're sucking air out of the room.

I may be wrong but let me guess. I'm ok being wrong. You got together with the equivalent of a child. Something about daddy too.
She would pull on you like a child. Then when you pulled away and possibly frequently lost your temper, like most guys when they are swamped by a woman she then became insecure (you wanted to find ways to not be home) and you lost respect for her neediness.
She became a vaggina` dentata. A vagina with teeth.

Not all women are like this. When I was married I never demanded I be given things. Which was fine because I really got nothing for my trouble.
I stand by what I said. HELP EACH OTHER. That's what relationships are for. Someone gives a dam about you.

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

as there is only one answer allowed, Id have to go with feminism. the constraints feminism puts on men, how they behave, constant shaming through the media, the law and society ready to slam down on men, are all restrictive factors.
a man and a woman go out, have a drink, end up n bed, she regrets it, cries rape..he ends up in court!
thats one scenario. feminism has backfired, you go guurrrlll!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34616551


"Feminists", otherwise known as "Female Supremacists", started with a reasonable goal, such as "equal pay for equal work". The best example of this is piecework, and that was thrown out by the liberal equivalents from the 19th century.

Today, even incompetent old hags like the one in charge of DHS get to pretend competence, yet their only claim to fame is their vagina, shriveled as it may be.

Boys are not allowed or encouraged to excel, and girls are almost forced to. The natural order of things is upside down, and will remain that way until girls get put back in their place through any of a thousand reasons from depression to war. When they get thrown back in the kitchen and bedroom where they belong, it won't be by girlie men - it will be by savage brutish men - probably from outside our country. The price of defying natural law is very high.

Prize testosterone and all it entails, and shun girls that try to be men.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35581840


wow, seriously? you want that for your daughters, your sisters? your mothers? cooks and sex slaves?

is that as far as your brain is able to imagine? oy. why not imagine a world where men have figured out that they don't need a MOMMY their entire lives, where men have figured out how to be an equal to a woman (not like in your scenario where the woman stays barefoot and pregnant with at the stove), where women and men live and work and thrive side by side because they share similar wants, needs, goals etc. Those brutes you speak of will only be able to land on our soil and rape women if we all don't figure out how to respect eachother. No one will be to blame - we will ALL be at fault.

Being a man doesn't automatically entitle you to a woman who will only have a dream to be a wife, cook and sex slave. Is that all you would want? really?

imagine greater. think wider, deeper, longer....women don' have to be suppressed in order for men to be men. Look at the middle east...where woman are treated horribly by their fathers, brothers, uncles, husbands...is this what you want for the women in your life, really?

a man who wants to dominate a woman- has no pride, no morals and no intelligence.
