    I think it has something to do with a “fish need(ing) a bicycle”.

    That which you reward you get more of;
    That which you penalize, you get less of.

    Camille Paglia defends men: if men are obsolete, then women will soon be extinct (American Enterprise Institute).

    “Instead, men’s gradual slide into poverty, crime, and social isolation has been largely met with silence.”

    That’s not a bug, it’s a feature. Doctrinaire Feminism has no other logical conclusion.

    In the not-too-distant future, there will be an explosive societal upheaval fueled by these “left-behind” men — along with enough sympathizers in the upper reaches to provide able organizers. Government handouts will not be able to stop it; what men want is respect and status, often more than food to eat.

    A man without status is a man with nothing to lose.

    We’re headed for dangerous times, even more so than when the government demobilized millions of fighting men after WWII.

    On the one hand, lack of economic mobility is either the root or the symptom of all evil, and must be addressed forthwith. On the other, any talk about difficulties faced by men is nothing more than the hypocritical whining of those forced to surrender the merest smidgen of their male privilege.

    I fear my wee poor brain shall explode.

    It may come as a surprise to some, but there is a marked relationship between economic power and political power; the class of men in peril in this Feed has very little of either. The slide alluded to above may also be function of outputs of the system (who gets what – political economic aspects of public policy).

    Are they considering only single women? Because any woman who “marries up” distorts their statistics. She’s not earning a higher income, she’s marrying one.
