December 9th, 2013 Comments off

by Brendan Malone

After my hugely popular blog post earlier this week, ‘What kind of man would do that and then brag about it on Facebook?’, a lot of people have asked me what I think we can do to fix the problem of the ‘Rōnin’ generation – those young men who lack a deep sense of direction and purpose because of the loss of authentic masculine identity.

I open doors for women because I admire them

November 7th, 2013 Comments off

An article has appeared in the NZ media this morningabout some absolutely absurd claims that some NZ academics are now making about men who show respect for women by opening doors, etc, for them. It also makes laughable claims about the women who accept such behavior as normal, even going so far as to suggest that they have a psychological disorder.

Here’s what the article has to say:

“Benevolent sexism has been identified as the flip side of the “hostile” sexism that would banish women to the kitchen. Read more…

Father’s Day 2013 has been accompanied, as is usual anymore, by many reflections on the sorry state of fatherhood in the western world. Read more…

Does “the end of men” begin in fatherless homes?

March 21st, 2013 Comments off

by Carolyn Moynihan

It’s the “end of men” theme again, but this time with a new diagnosis. The story so far. Feminist Hanna Rosin says men are sinking in the workforce because they are just not as adaptable as women to the demands of a changing workforce for more education. Conservative Charles Murray says men have given up the commitment to working because the welfare state has sapped their motivation. Read more…

Scholar: Liberals, Feminists Have Made Men Afraid to Embrace Their Manhood

March 18th, 2013 Comments off
By Napp Nazworth , Christian Post Reporter

A healthy society needs fathers. Men, therefore, need to embrace their manhood and recognize the important role they play as husbands and fathers in a family, Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse advised Friday in a panel on the problem of fatherlessness at the Conservative Political Action Conference in National Harbor, Md.

Where Have All the Good Men Gone? Ask the Women, Too.

Kay Hymowitz writes:

What also makes pre-adulthood something new is its radical reversal of the sexual hierarchy. Among pre-adults, women are the first sex. They graduate from college in greater numbers (among Americans ages 25 to 34, 34% of women now have a bachelor’s degree but just 27% of men), and they have higher GPAs. As most professors tell it, they also have more confidence and drive. These strengths carry women through their 20s, when they are more likely than men to be in grad school and making strides in the workplace. In a number of cities, they are even out-earning their brothers and boyfriends. Still, for these women, one key question won’t go away: Where have the good men gone? Read more…

A man’s top 5 reasons to grow up and get married

January 28th, 2013 Comments off

By

Six months ago, I wrote a column here at FoxNews regarding the fact that my wife and I made the choice to wait until marriage. Some people claimed offense. As per usual, I’m okay with that.

Here’s why; I’m pro-marriage. I always have been, always will be and I’ll make no apologies for it. As a matter of fact, most of you should be apologizing to me. Yeah, I said it. Whether you’re one with a successful marriage who’s remained silent on its myriad virtues, or merely a single, lonely critic… America, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.

Sadly, marriage has become a punchline in today’s society. From referring to the wife as “the old ball and chain” to nearly every poorly written sitcom that we watch, the message we’re sending to today’s generation is clear… Marriage = no fun.

Men on TV constantly joke about how wives are incredibly expensive, demanding and overall vacuums of all things fun. By that same token, the women complain about their fat, lazy, insensitive husbands as they swoon over their trimmed, manicured and chest-waxed Hollywood counterparts.

Ever see a commercial with a wife and husband shopping together? Yeah, we always play the idiot.

22 Stats That Prove That There Is Something Seriously Wrong With Young Men In America

December 19th, 2012 Comments off

By Michael, on December 17th, 2012

Young MenWhen are we finally going to admit that we have a very serious problem with this generation of young men in America?  We have failed them so dramatically that it is hard to put it into words.  We have raised an entire generation of young males that don’t know how to be men, and many of them feel completely lost.  Sometimes they feel so lost that they “snap” in very destructive ways.  Adam Lanza and James Holmes are two names that come to mind.  Why is it that mass murderers are almost always young men?  Read more…

Was Rush Limbaugh Right When He Said Feminism “Ruined Women”? Partially

December 18th, 2012 Comments off

by Samantha Schroeder, Ruth Institute “It Takes a Family” Summer Conference 2012 alumna.

Last Friday, Rush Limbaugh made a comment toward the end of his talk show blaming feminism for “ruining women.”

Limbaugh commented on feminist academic Camille Paglia’s article in The Hollywood Reporter. He read excerpts from her article critiquing American pop culture, citing it as the source of poor role models for young men and women, and the inaccurate portrayal of a “manliness” epitomized by the Twilight series: Read more…

The end of men – and women

September 26th, 2012 Comments off

by Carolyn Moynihan

If masculinity is doomed, so is femininity, as a new book demonstrates.

It would be easy to misunderstand the meaning of Hanna Rosin’s now celebrated theme “the end of men”. The title of the American writer’s 2010 Atlantic magazine article, and now of a full-blown book, signifies not the total redundancy of men as sub-species of the human race (although a biology professor recently suggested we were near that point) but the end of masculinity as we have known it. What is in sight is the end of men as providers and protectors, as leaders and authorities — roles based on their physical strength and capacity for fatherhood. Read more…
