define "failure-to-launch young men" plz
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1174984


In a nutshell, I would define it as failure to take responsibility incumbent upon a man.

Or another meaning might be: Can't get it up. LOL ;)
 Quoting: John Cocktosen


Actually, it means to get laid early and often by a HOT girl, and very little more. That's the prime directive. Smart guys will avoid allowing a girl to get pregnant, and will game the system to death.

Of course, having a place of your own - or finding a way to bum a free ride off a girl, is necessary. It's also necessary to live away from parents or relatives, and never with another guy - too gay looking.

Maybe these guys are doing better than to succumb to social whims expecting them to be married, drive, have kid/s by the age of 30 like it's some kind of unwritten law.

Fuck that, i'd rather be single and drinking or gaming 24/7 than putting myself out there all hours of the day for a brat sucking on its mums tit.

Things are absolutely hopeless for men. Even the "successful" ones.

Let's see...

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.

And deep down, why should the woman care? If the money isn't coming in like she expected it to, she can just flash her tits at some bar and get whatever or whoever she wants. There's always something better. Yeah, she probably has a much higher paying job than the guys that pick up on her, but they'll buy her drinks for the whole night anyway, just because. And of course, princess has been raised as a princess, so free gifts all night is to be expected.

Meanwhile, guys that do try for a while in this shit system end up getting shit all over. The days of one man paying all the bills and still having enough cash left over for recreation is over. That's what's called "rich" in today's society. Men can contribute some cash, but overall, they really aren't totally necessary anymore.

Brains are certainly looked down upon but as long as the guy is a hardass gangsta and has a shit load of cash, the pussy flows like wine.

How many guys with actual degrees are unemployed? Shit they may be the most creative motherfuckers in the world, but they're unemployed and to most people that makes them losers and worthless.

Fuck this shit fucking society. I fucking give up. If that makes me a coward, then I guess I'm a coward. Call me whatever the fuck you want. From now I take care of me and only me. I escape as much as possible. And fuck relationships. I'd be committing the most heinous of crimes against humanity if I brought a poor kid into the fucked up hell of a world.

I'll need to see proof that there are "so many" failure-to-launch young men.

I'm a well to do single young man, and I'm not trying to "go there" but quite honestly I would instead ask, why are there so many "failure-to-launch young women" ?

I hate all the shows my daughter watches on family channel

All men are shown as dumb idiots and all the women are shown as smart and successfull

The only sitcom worth watching in the old days was "Married With Children". It was an equal opportunity show where the girls were as stupid and dumb as the guys, and nobody gave lip service to guilt or shame. They did what they felt like and dealt with the consequences.

(Lack of reasonable moral or religious upbringing) was in the lead when I voted. This is the number one cause. The young kids today should be brought up with manners and respect. Their should be a simple set of rules to follow.

Just by following the 10 commandments, laws of karma, and the golden rule young people could learn to develop a better world. Humanity must become more in tune with its spiritual nature. The education system needs to be completely remolded. Also there must be a new or improved economy and economic system.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35479848


So you feel that morals are not taught in the public school system? But if so why are boys more effected??coffee4
 Quoting: George B
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.
 Quoting: Melrox


I think you have some good points but I am seeing this "failure to launch" in two parent families with successful fathers and mothers not working or only part time . . . I don't get it . . . how do you explain that????huffy

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.

Maybe some morals are taught in the public school system depending on which school it is. It wouldn't hurt to teach men to have respect and to be like gentlemen.

Terrible upbringings = terrible people = terrible world.

Boys are more effected because their upbringings are more corrupted. If there was a better education system, economy, and government there would be a better America for everyone.

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.

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.

Very close to that "will-you-still-need-me" birthday, and with my own sons in their twenties not rushing things, I hardly feel inclined to blame them, and am pleasantly surprised to endorse the current top three as the main causes, from those on offer for consideration for our present global malaise.

Note that all of these top three can be seen as triggers for righteous anger, since all imply failures of leadership (at the least.)

Am I wrong, or is Feminism up at no.4 in our poll? I hope not, for I would be unhappy to see "righteous anger" being deployed by opponents of Feminism. To me, that would be a pathetic, embarrassing spectacle. Then again, I do blame Feminism for the popularisation of oral lovemaking amongst the bravely unhip heterosexual community. Also, there is empirical proof in today's Daily Mail that women continue to neglect their own most pressing personal concerns, to the benefit, presumably of those around them in that four out of five of them continue to wear the wrong size bra. Now when I was young And feminism was just kicking off, those were the days of bra-burning. My mother- in-law, a magnificently endowed woman, whose name anagrammatised to "Comely Bosoms" or very similar, used to have a great postcard of that, a woman burning her bra, in her kitchen for years and years.

Anyway, so, yes, times are tough, but the important thing is to try and find out exactly what is the nature of the parasite that has infected and corrupted our human perception, cultures and societies, contain and isolate the parasites that urge us to waste our happiness and health in continuous wars and slavery to the redemption of unplayable, fraudulent debts, and free ourselves as common human beings from the tyranny of the less-than-onepercent.

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.

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
