What I have found fascinating in my time as a blogger/reader in this realm where I dwell is the similarities in a lot of interests I thought I alone have, notable for this post: concern for the future.
To get straight to it: there are way too many problems our society faces and we are doing nothing about, pretty much if any ONE of them reaches its tipping point it is game over. So while we have ‘great’ news like this: http://www.nber.org/digest/jan07/w12139.html that women outnumber men in college at 1.35 to 1 (2002, Im sure its far worse now) the problem comes twofold, the first being that bachelors are so numerous they essentially have become valueless. 2nd, given the edge we face any education in the soft arts will be useless.
The economy is in shambles, despite the 14,000 DOW, middle America is in a crisis. This graph is from 2011, http://www.prb.org/Articles/2011/us-young-adults-living-at-home.aspx and shows that 19 % of males live at home compared to 10% female. I do NOT believe this is an accident, nor a result of men ‘not manning up’ it is that this new feminized economy does not need males. Females can better answer phones or shuffle emails, giving the boss a forlorn hope that he might get some from the cute new secretary.
So regardless of this economic apocalypse for men under 30, the whole boat is likely to continue on this downward trend because nothing is changing, money continues to be printed, china continues posturing to drop the dollar, oil continues to run out, feminists continue to cry about inequality.
I got one thing for you feminists: the injustice you think you face now will blow your mind if our society collapses, you will revert back to your biologically programming of seeking the protection of an alpha male and feel happy about it.
When survival is at stake, it will not matter how many articles you can cite, how much of a patriarchy has oppressed you, what matters is if you can survive, and having a strong, smart male protecting you is a good place to start.
