I have seen some parents who enabled their adult sons.
mom does their clothes washing, dad does their taxes. I'm a woman and have been on my own since 18 so normally I see those things as excessive.

Neatly half the married men I know of are actually gay. They use women to cover up. Most men have no respect for women. And that fact is abundant in the northern states.

Could it be more of a cultural thing?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35618530


I don't know about the gay part but I do think young men are protected too much by both parents . . . They are given no responsibilities and are given no purpose in the home except to be out of the way and perusing their own selfish interests. . . this was not allowed in generations before. . . everyone had responsibilities to the family. . . .hf

It's good to be an Alpha. My old man taught me to rise above the slackers. Now I'm making bucks and I have a herem of young women.

Not every dude was meant to make it to the top. If your parents werent smart enough to navigate you around the filth then that's just Darwin at work. Death isn't a bad thing. You should want the good genes to survive.

Only one answer to the poll matters: tucked into number 10 is the answer. Porn.

This TED talk explains how internet porn has changed the world because it's changed men's brains.

All of the other options are just appendages to the porn problem. You want to a be a revolutionary? Stop looking at internet porn.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7449407

If you do a little research into history, you will find plently of shitty times, yet today, the cards are so stacked in the favor of those born rich. For a man today to make himself into something, he either has to have alot of money, or has powerful connections sense birth. A typical person with no connections and born into a frugal family, will never attain the same wealth as the rich. Its a matter of factors which are not in our favor.

I'm a woman and I often find myself "bashing" women, and for good reason. How are men expected to man up when they aren't given the opportunity? Nowadays, if a man tried to be the leader of his family, he would be considered some kind of mental or emotional abuser, instead of just being the rock. Until women take a step back, look at the big picture, and see what's needed in a family for it to work, things are just going to get worse. Women have a much bigger role in correcting this.

 Quoting: George B


Get your supercilious coffee cup out of my face and watch the video, OP. Yes. Porn has been around for thousands of years. But only in the last 10 to 15 years has it been accessible in a way that it is injected into the brain so quickly as to overwhelm and completely change it. Recent research shows that conditions that doctors have been treating as primary conditions in men for over the past ten years--depression, impotence, low testosterone, low energy--are not primary conditions at all. They are symptoms of the same disease: internet porn addiction.

And why it down the list as a response in your little poll? Two reasons: first, men are in denial about their problem. Porn is accepted as normal in today's society. But it isn't healthy to use it. It is worse for the brain that some kinds of drugs. Second, you have porn lumped in with drugs and alcohol. Drugs and alcohol have been around for thousands of years. But their impact on men is relatively unchanged. The X factor in today's world is internet porn. It has changed the world and is THE cause for "failure-to-launch" syndrome.

Have you watched your internet porn today? I'm going to guess yes.

Men, and particularly young men, were the early adopters of internet porn. But the problem is becoming more widespread. As porn becomes more matter-of-fact, more women will begin to use it. They will fall into its trap, too.

I have a friend who is an ER doc. She regularly prepares toxicology reports. There is an unusually large number of people who die at home, alone, naked, watching porn. This is the epidemic of our time. None of the other responses to your little poll come anywhere near internet porn in explaining "failure to launch" as our culture is currently experiencing it.

Interesting . . . This option has been way down the list. . . no doubt porn is now universally more available than anytime in the history of the world. . . . Yet, it has always existed in one form or another. . . .coffee4
 Quoting: George B


Get your supercilious coffee cup out of my face and watch the video, OP. Yes. Porn has been around for thousands of years. But only in the last 10 to 15 years has it been accessible in a way that it is injected into the brain so quickly as to overwhelm and completely change it. Recent research shows that conditions that doctors have been treating as primary conditions in men for over the past ten years--depression, impotence, low testosterone, low energy--are not primary conditions at all. They are symptoms of the same disease: internet porn addiction.

And why it down the list as a response in your little poll? Two reasons: first, men are in denial about their problem. Porn is accepted as normal in today's society. But it isn't healthy to use it. It is worse for the brain that some kinds of drugs. Second, you have porn lumped in with drugs and alcohol. Drugs and alcohol have been around for thousands of years. But their impact on men is relatively unchanged. The X factor in today's world is internet porn. It has changed the world and is THE cause for "failure-to-launch" syndrome.

Have you watched your internet porn today? I'm going to guess yes.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7449407


I have not watched your Youtube yet . . . and I did admit that porn is now available as never before . . . but I will reserve my opinion as to its impact on failure to launch until I have time to consider it . . . you also need to understand I am the one to include it in the poll to begin with . . . I included it with other addictive substances . . . that is hardly minimizing its influence . . . coffee4. . . seems men are not the only victims or viewers . . . while responsible for Internet security for a corporation I found the persons caught viewing it in the workplace were just as likely to be women or more often young women than men . . .

This little poll is just a small step in a process to get opinions which may eventully identify and explore the ills of society . . . it was just a stab in the dark so to speak . . . it in no way was a professional attempt to identify and correct the problem of dysfunction of men or women in society

The trend nowadays is for parents to coddle their children and not push them out of the nest so they will become INDEPENDENT. A lot of these weirdos don't WANT their kids to grow up. It's freaking bizarre.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32895948


I've seen this.

Your list shows how little people understand what is going on because you missed the only legitimate reason.

When society is completely wrong the only way to be right is to turn your back on society.

THAT is what is driving young men towards apathy and lack of action. They realize that any action taken within the system is just going to help build up the corruption and push us further in the direction of NWO. Many may not even realize this exactly... they simply see aspects of society which they are disgusted by which leads them to simply not take part.

It isn't cowardice... it's the bravery. It's having the courage to take your own path while everyone tells you that you're wrong and everything wrong with the world.

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.

The only way to beat the system is to not take part and watch it fucking burn. Stop trying to repair it and keep it from collapsing... have the courage to watch it all come down with faith that we will be able to build something better when the dust settles.

OP, in reading through this whole post, I'm amazed how many people keep asking you to "define what you mean" when you say failure-to-launch. You've had to repeat in multiple times, and they still ask, amazing.

Anyway, in past generations, men would look to see what the future could hold for them. Then they would take action in the present that would lead to a successful future.

In a sense, this is still what is happening. Men are still looking to see what the future can hold for them. But for the first time, IT HOLDS NOTHING...or at least nothing worth the grind.

So they dedicate their present to enjoyment, rather than working their asses off for no future.

If there's nothing to work for, then there's no point. Men today have not changed in that regard. But since this is the first time when working hard now is an exercise in futility, they've decided, "why bother?"

Perhaps some do. You're missing the point.

Fact is, there's nothing "productive" for them to do. Nothing that will be productive to their futures.

Unless by "productive" you mean work for a system that will give them nothing. But in the true sense of the word, there is nothing productive for them to do.

I'm not missing the point. Grow a garden. Raise rabbits. Learn small engine repair. Go for a hike. Train a dog. Learn to bow hunt.

There is plenty of stuff that even an unemployed person can do that does not contribute to the corrupt system we live in. But most are enslaved by porn right now. It is very hard to break from cultural programming.
