Young men are dropping out of society because it's abundantly clear
nobody gives a shit about them
The majority of homeless people are men. The majority of suicide deaths are men. Young men
graduate college less than young women. Young women are out-earning young men. Single women
are more likely to own a home than single men. There are gross discrepancies in the amount of
government aid available to men and that available to women.
Yet I've never seen women marching to end male homelessness. I've never heard a radio ad about
raising money for prostate cancer. I've never seen a commercial asking men if maybe it's time to give
college a second chance. Literally, nobody cares if you live or die. Nobody cares if you're educated or
fulfilled. Nobody cares about you.
And you will be openly mocked, belittled, and humiliated if you don't fit into the predefined social mold
that exists for men. Homeless? Fuck off. Small dick? Haha. Suicidal? Ew.
Why bother trying to be part of society that at best ignores you, and at worst is openly antagonistic
towards you? I've seen so many articles like this: "Why are young men dropping out? It must be
because educated women scare them." They always come to the same, obtuse, and illogical
conclusions. "Men are just stupid/lazy/useless/onerous in some way, I guess. Women are better
Young men are dropping out because they are treated by society like actual, literal disposable objects.
That's the real reason.
Edit: To everyone asking me in the comments why women should be responsible for helping men, this
is the reason: Feminism by its literal definition is about fostering gender equality. If men are
disproportionately negatively affected by things like homelessness, violence, a lack of education, and
presumptions of criminality, then these are inherently feminist issues. If you are a feminist that doesn't
care about male problems, then you are not a feminist.
