A short but interesting piece, but it suffers from the same weaknesses that so much of Warren’s work does. It doesn’t attribute the disadvantages faced by males to the actions and inactions of the state, nor does it expose the feminist agendas that drive those actions and inactions. The first of two examples, from the beginning of the piece:
…boys in more than 60 of the largest developed nations were falling behind academically, and in mental health (e.g., suicide; shootings);…
The mental health explanation for male suicide is true only in that it is reactive depression that leads men to kill themselves – depression in response to major life stressors, such as denial of access to their children. And the state could solve that problem in a heartbeat, if it wanted to. Which brings us to the second example:
Developed nations, it turns out, were indirectly fostering dad-deprivation in two ways: More permission both for divorce, and for children being born to unmarried mothers.
Children are not denied access to their fathers merely through divorce, but rather through the corrupt family courts system which enables malicious mothers to deny their ex-partners access. And why are so many children born to single mothers? Because the state incentivises that choice for women, through giving them social housing, and benefits, mainly paid for by male taxpayers.
