I can see your point. I have given up on dating already, there are just not a lot of real men to pick from any more. I myself am raising two future men, so I want them to have strong manly traits when they grow up, not be sissies.

While Letterman was able to finally get the TRO sqaushed,ten's of thousands of American men are routinely ejected forcibly from thier own homes, in order to "protect" a woman whom in many cases may not even live there. Even when TRO's are not used to allow a woman to "squat" in a mans home, Judges from across the nation have confirmed that they are issued to any who apply, regardless of merit of claim.
Nor is this a solely american phenomenon
We are often told that "women earn less than men for the same work"
However the truth is that men and women with the same education, experience, and years worked fulltime are compared there is no difference.
SO why do we hear this claim?
Because men are more likely to work full time for more years, are less liely to work part time, are more likely to work over-time or in physically dangerous jobs which have a "risk premium" inherent in the pay scales.
While we are distracted by false conspiracies like the "9/11 truth" and "the Moon hoax" the Marxist-feminist conspiracy is working torwards a world without Men, or even the concept of Manliness. They are poising us as babies, causing life-long reductions in T, falsely claiming discrimination to limit the power of those alive, ensuring our next generation of men will be not only more feminine but less educated and less healthy.

Family responsiblities and roles have undergone dramatic shifts. It has long range implications that lead to the downfall of society even. It parallels what happened to Rome

However, I did notice that many of the men and women still behave in gender stereotypes.
Until we understand that ALL of these conspiracies are aimed at a final goal by the same people, we will be running around in circles chasing our own tails as the world’s elite claim the planet and place us all into servitude to them. The best way to control people is to pit two groups against each other. When they finally become so uncomfortable with the situation that they are willing to do anything to make it stop, the elite will step in with a solution. Thesis plus antithesis equals synthesis. The synthesis (solution) is to create a world order in government, economy, education and religion. I see us getting closer to this everyday. War, 9/11, racial unrest, social unrest, and every other conspiracy theory are only stepping stones to the final solution. The final solution is the New World Order.

"manly" doesn't equal "good".

Excellent thread. Star and a flag.
I'd like to add this to the debate:
The vast difference in suicide rates between men and women worldwide.
Men's health in general - and mental health, in this case - is outright ignored by the media.

why is it about men vs. woman?
Why do we do that? why cant it be that when woman hit men its bad and when men hit woman its bad.
Obviously this is a pretty expansive issue so no, abuse is not the only problem i realize but it makes for an easy to understand example.
