Perhaps it's just me, but I don't think a crybaby thread on a web site will help any males feel more masculine.
I don't feel society affecting my masculinity in any way. In fact I feel more confident in my abilities than ever.

Just so we're clear on this, I'm reiterating for the second time in the thread that I'm a woman, and I see a major problem growing with men becoming subjects of slow, insidious subjugation in this country. Flirt, it's assault. Smile, it's predatory. Be chivalrous, it's practically rape. Get a job before a woman, it's sexism. Crack a line-toeing joke, and you should be sterilized.
Prove my ass wrong, and the OP's.

Fix the pay gap!
Equality for women!
National Women’s day!
We need more female engineers and scientists!
It’s great. No, it truly is. I think it’s awesome that there is a lot of positive encouragement for girls.
But do you know what all these have in common? They are completely neglecting, and in some cases, degrading the male gender. It’s like we’ve become a nuisance to society. Like we are not worth helping anymore. When in reality, we need help more than anyone. Here are a few stats:
Men are 3.5 times more likely to commit suicide.
Male to female transition is 3 times more common than female to male.
Men make up 90% of prisons.
Men make up 98% of war deaths.
Men make up 85% of homeless shelters.
Women are 8% more likely to graduate high school.
Our very gender is labeled “toxic.” Our aggressive and physical nature is frowned upon. Our masculinity is being feminized. The male gender is literally being destroyed.
When the truth of the matter is, we need men. Without men the world would no longer operate. Manly men, yes manly, are a vital part to society. Who does most of the manual labor? Who fights most of the wars? Who grows most of the crops? Who leads most of the countries? Men do.
There is so little supporting men. Name me good male role models that are being praised by society. Name institutions selectively helping, supporting, and encouraging men. There aren’t any. Heck, we don’t even have Boy Scouts anymore!
Young men are lost. They don’t know what to do. They waste away their lives playing video games, doing drugs, partying. Society doesn’t want them. The problem is, society so desperately needs them.
Society needs disciplined men with strong characters, noble ideals, compassionate hearts, and genuine leadership.
Society needs to regain its respect for young men. It needs to help young men get back on their feet. Without authentic men, society will only become worse.
This is in no way trying to say that men are more important than women. Both are equally important, just that one seems to be more valued at this present moment.
