Yet it is males who suffer in our society. From boyhood through adulthood, the White American Male must fight his way through a litany of taunts, assumptions and grievances about his very existence. His oppression is unlike anything American women have faced. Unlike women, however, men don’t organize and form groups when they’ve been persecuted. They just bow out of the game.I feel very uncomfortable sending my son to school in the USA. Despite him being educated in the unholy British ultra-liberal system here in Hong Kong, it is still far behind the ridiculousness of the American educational system. But he is in for a rude awakening and an uneven field as he manages his way through the absurdities that higher education has become in the US.
America needs to wake up. We have swung the pendulum too far in the other direction—from a man’s world to a woman’s world.
There is a society that the US is starting to emulate, and that is the Philippines. Both have developed into a society where men are second class. Women earn more than men on average and higher education participation rates are skewed heavily towards women. The nation has also descended into one of the poorest in the region from being among the wealthiest 50 years ago. I have no evidence of cause-and-effect, just an observation of poverty, broken families and troubles.
There is also a society within the US that has followed a similar trajectory in some respects to the Philippines and that is the Black community. Men are largely our of the picture and have little stake in the success or failure of families, neighborhoods, churches or even a nation. The decline int eh Black family has followed the rise of the American favoritism towards women and the shunting of men.
After seeing the nonsense that my sisters spewed out of the their Facebooks nearly everyday on the 'war on women' Democratic theme of the last election, I realized that I have almost nothing in common with these foolish people and the nation that used to be my home. I have decided to bow out of their lives and let them live it in whatever way they please without the troubling interference from me. Good luck.
