Dr. Helen

The New York Times has an article entitled “Study of Men’s Falling Income Cites Single Parents” where men are just too darn lazy and unattractive to land a woman so women stay single:

For all Americans, it has become much harder to make a living without a college degree, for intertwined reasons including foreign competition, advancements in technology and the decline of unions. Over the same period, the earnings of college graduates have increased. Women have responded exactly as economists would have predicted, by going to college in record numbers. Men, mysteriously, have not.

Among people who were 35 years old in 2010, for example, women were 17 percent more likely to have attended college, and 23 percent more likely to hold an undergraduate degree.

“I think the greatest, most astonishing fact that I am aware of in social science right now is that women have been able to hear the labor market screaming out ‘You need more education’ and have been able to respond to that, and men have not,” said Michael Greenstone, an M.I.T. economics professor who was not involved in Professor Autor’s work. “And it’s very, very scary for economists because people should be responding to price signals. And men are not. It’s a fact in need of an explanation.” …

“Single-parent families tend to emerge in places where the men already are a mess,” said Christopher Jencks, a professor of social policy at Harvard University. “You have to ask yourself, ‘Suppose the available men were getting married to the available women? Would that be an improvement?’ ”

Instead of making marriage more attractive, he said, it might be better for society to help make men more attractive.

I think some of the commenters to the Times article have some decent explanations that no one wants to hear:

As the mother of a teenaged girl and a teenaged boy I see the differences between the two of them and between their friends. The modern world and the modern economy agrees with the girls: they see that the glass ceiling is diminishing, they see that their attention to detail and adaptability are valued, they see the world as open before them. The boys? A little less so — generally they are less mature as they leave HS, they sense that the 20th century order, which gave them an instant leg-up, is vanishing.

All the encouragement the baby boom heaped on their daughters is paying off. But we didn’t mean for it to come off the backs of our sons. I think the shift in the economy is reinforcing/ exaggerating the result. It’s in popular culture everywhere, the new woman so strong and smart, the new man so backward and foolish.

Another comment:

Males are now being given a “boot on the neck” and so this has nothing to do with any sort of level playing field. Males are expected to build, repair, transport, and defend everything…while women are free from any such expectations.

Men are expected to be punished for everything. But women are paradoxically treated as “strong, independent victims”.

And yet another comment:

Decades of school systems’ encouraging girls while quasi-criminalizing boys, medicating and penalizing primary-school boys for what is typical little-boy behavior has something to do with this. Perhaps if the majority of primary-school teachers weren’t women of whom many in large measure value the ability of little girls to sit quietly over ebullient expressions of interest (or whatever) from little boys there might be better outcomes at that level and fewer boys internalizing the notion that they’re just no good in school and not valued setting them up to respond to the lure of street life and the usual macho acting-out that that feeling marginalized leads to in males. Insane zero-tolerance behavioral policies by unthinking school administrators don’t help either. Arrest a six year old for bringing a[f] spork from his camping mess kit to school? Totally un-called for – it’s absurd and damaging.

Boys and men right now are off to a bad start from day one and those who don’t go along with the female -privileged society are stuck on the sidelines. A boy’s typical day might be one with a single mom, mostly female teachers who rarely give him a break, a culture that tells him he is a pervert, TV shows, bulletin boards and news shows portraying him as a rapist and domestic violence abuser and all around bad guy. It’s no wonder men have opted out of an economy and culture that values them so little.

Let me teach about life for a man, 'jmarie' - we don't have any RIGHTS or legal power AT ALL in a relationship with a woman. Legally she has ALL the power to eject you from the home at any second and wipe you out financially and destroy your entire life legally through court.

Thus why married men have to walk on eggshells because the wifey knows all this and even throws it in his face constantly, threatening him with all of this if he doesn't do what she tells him. THAT is living in HELL. How in the HELL is a man supposed to 'take responsibility' for his part in that relationship?!?

And that's ANY woman. I don't care if she's living in the ghetto, in Beverly Hills, is a professional or stay at home mom and all inbetween, it doesn't MATTER- because the LAWS apply equally to ALL. Kind a starting to wake up a little? My cousin is married to an architect and live in an upscale neighborhood and from the outside they look like the envy of everyone, but she confides in me, and let me tell you, she is a MONSTER of a human being. More educated women are actually more abusive - did you know that? I'm certainly not drawn to bitchy, manipulative women- is that the DELUSION all of you are under? You're sadly mistaken if that's what you believe. No, men END UP with those women- they weren't that way AT FIRST. They were sweet and fun and a joy to be around. Then after about a year, the veneer wears off and the psycho power freak comes out, but it's usually all behind closed doors. For christ sake, haven't you ever seen the movie American Beauty? That was FOURTEEN YEARS AGO that movie came out. That's why women will put on that gooey, fake front for the outside world, so when the husband complains about what a monster she is, no one will believe him. Women are very, very shrewd. Every been married to one? No, I didn't think so.

It's IMPOSSIBLE for a man to tell what a woman is going to be like a year or two from now. The sweetness is the BAIT. Oh, there's obvious golddiggers that let it be known up front, or the full on sluts, but the vast majority- 98% - all fall into the seemingly normal range. Women aren't exactly world famous for letting their intentions be known. In fact amongst men there is an old adage, "don't listen to what she says, watch what she DOES."

Let's take YOU for example.. I suppose we're all supposed to just assume that you're a great wonderful woman who would make a pleasant loving wife, right? And how are we just supposed to 'know' this? OH- that's right, just because you're simply TELLING US. WE have HORRENDOUS divorce laws all designed to completely SCREW OVER men by women and I'm just supposed to take your 'word' for it? Saying not all women are like that is completely missing the point as well, because women tend to have a completely different set of ethics and feel 100% justified in screwing over men. WHY? Because the LEGAL SYSTEM tells them it's right! That is the very CULTURE we live in. Saying not all women are like that is like saying 'not all people like to eat in restaurants' - it's technically correct, but how in the HELL does that help me? Not a bit. It's a stupid and simple minded approach to a vastly complex issue, that quite frankly, I seriously doubt you can even comprehend.

jmarie:

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for proving exactly what I was saying. Same to you Awoman.

Every time I post something similar to what I did on forums similar to this one, invariably, a woman/women comes out and tells me that I'm choosing the wrong ones. That I'm looking in the wrong places. That ultimately, the work to find a quality woman is on ME and that the average woman simply needs to show up. Ultimately, women live in fantasyfairytaleunicorn-land and men do not.



Sorry, I'm not buying this "keep looking" nonsense one bit. I posted a valid comment with valid objections to marriage and had valid concerns as to what I am to gain from a relationship or marriage. You two answered none of those and came back with that oft-repeated canard, no different than the huckster with the illegal three-card monte game on the Boardwalk says when he isn't done fleecing you: "Oh, you were so close, keep trying and you'll win eventually."

Again, I posit the question to you, if marriage is so great, what's in it for me?

Ok, fine. Stop looking. Stay alone, pay for sex, adopt a child by yourself, have friends over for company and enjoy your hobbies.

And while you're at it, do NOTHING to change the laws in family court that are screwing your friends over and keeping kids away from their fathers after divorce. You know the friends I am talking about, the ones who married the first girl who would have sex with them and were totally LED into marriage by their wives. The ones who got married because their moms wanted grandchildren? The ones who got married because they wanted regular sex? Yeah, those guys. They married the wrong women.

Maybe 40% of marriages will survive because many, many happen when they shouldn't. They happen because the WEDDING industry is as big as the DIVORCE industry. Here's some clues for you:

If you meet a girl who has dreamed of her wedding day since she was a little girl: run away.

If you meet a girl who talks about 'the stuff' her friends have: run away.

If you meet a girl who's friends are cheating on their spouse and they are still friends: run away

If you meet a girl who criticizes you (even jokingly): run away

If you meet a girls who doesn't cook: run away

If you meet a girl who doesn't take responsibility for her behavior in the demise of her past relationships: run away.

Ok, I am out of time at the moment, but I could go on...and I'm not even sure you'll see this since your post is 3 days old.(I just saw it!)

And, to answer your question, what's in it for you? If you marry the correct person, married life is shelter from the storm, it's a place of peace and acceptance and the joy of being part of a family that is there for you in good times and bad. Having children when you want them is one of life's greatest pleasures. I say this as the mom of two.They are their father's pride and joy as well.

It's nearly impossible to find the right person to marry, so many people lose patience and simply marry the wrong one and 'hope it gets better'. I made this very mistake and won't make it again.

Maybe you shouldn't get married, but at the end of the day, you may regret that fear kept you from having a family.

They don't care why marriage should benefit you. It isn't on their radar screen. The issue is to shame you ("Peter Pan", "You can't take on a commitment", "Man-child", "Loser, probably in his parent's basement" etc.) until you cave in and marry the woman. You have now given up all power to her, and she is under no obligation to treat her wage-slave like a human being. The court will simply determine his wage-slave status with alimony, and other men will enforce it, if he dares get uppity.

Oh for the love of God, Dr. Helen, if you're going to advocate for men that's really noble, but you have got to stop basing all of your 'research' on these trendy mainstream articles usually written by women.

Here, let me help you out- here's how you think for yourself and investigate for yourself- it's called 'Connect The Dots.' You have to do it for yourself because the MSM is full of lies and half-truths and diversions.

First let's go here - the Dept. Of Labor Official Website and look at what most women are actually doing professionally in the REAL WORLD:
http://www.dol.gov/wb/factsheets/20lead2010.htm

Well, what do you know? More women are working as Secretaries and administrative assistants than any other profession! Then Registered nurses, teachers & then cashiers and pretty much downhill from there! Looks like women are doing EXACTLY what they were doing in 1955, huh? And it's never changed!

My God- why, that flies directly in the face of everything these kind of articles proclaim, or at least imply doesn't it? So next, what you do is you have to ask yourself WHY? Why is this? Thinking like a detective- you're going to investigate this and stop being so damn lazy.

Next, you look at the fact that yes, more women ARE going to college than men, that much is true, but we're missing 98% of the information here, aren't we? So let's mosey on over here http://www.forbes.com/2010/08/10/most-popular-college-degrees-for-women-forbes-woman-leadership-education_slide_2.html
to find out what exactly all these women MAJORING IN.

1. Business
2. Health and Clinical Science
3. Social Sciences and History
4. Education
5. Psychology
6. Visual and Performing Arts
7. Communication and Communication
8. Biological and Biomedical Sciences
9. English Language and Literature/Letters
10. Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies, Humanities

Yeaaa.. a degree in 'Business' will get you a job at Starbuck's & the rest are all fluff or fall in line with the Dept. of Labor stats, or are fields that are extremely overcrowded or extremely unrealistic. The ones who were stupid enough to major in such crap as 'dance' and 'communication' are forced to work at Wendy's because they were too stupid to investigate the actual job opportunities in those fields which is generally 0.0000001%. The vast majority of women are not becoming engineers, doctors, attorneys, or physicists because well, those are just too hard & time consuming for Ms. Pony Princess.

So how is it, exactly, that women are 'out earning' men? Well, that's easy- because so many men - especially under 30, are UNEMPLOYED and STILL living with their mothers. OR, they're working at Wendy's themselves, it's just that Becky is the manager- 'out earning' the male burger flippers by a few dollars.

So what have we learned? That these articles are painting a far different picture from REALITY. They give the impression that women are 'high flying' CEOs & doctors when the truth is actually extremely GRIM. Mainstream articles glamorize women, when in reality, most of them are tatted up whores and receiving a great deal of government welfare and child support- the other half of their 'out earnings.' Thus the 'mix & match' families that are so popular. Women figured out 10-15 years ago that they can turn child rearing into a business by having multiple children by multiple fathers, receiving 4 child support checks from each- far more lucrative than being married to anyone of them.

NOW- THAT is what you call 'connecting the dots' and thinking for yourself.

My mom "stayed at home," but I would not call it sitting on her arse. She took care of a dozen kids. Every morning, she was up at five doing laundry, preparing meals for the day, cleaning the house, getting grocery lists together, keeping finances in order, sewing clothes for all the kids because that was the cheapest way to clothe us on one wage, while my dad worked his outside job. When my dad came home, dinner was on the table like clockwork.
I know that family size doesn't happen much in today's world, but when I think of women who stay at home with 2 or 3 kids, and keep a clean house, groceries full, finances in order, laundry done, husband happy, I can't help to think that this is pretty much a full-time job. I admire the women who do that, and it seems that the women who keep themselve together, healthy, pretty, in-shape, and stay active in their kids' schools, while their husbands perhaps have high-powered or well-traveled careers, seem to have happy marriages too.
Seems that there is, like everything else in nature, a spectrum of styles, from the type of women that want to leech off their men, sit at home and eat bon bons all day while calling in the maid to take care of everything.
-The true partner at home, supporting the working husband so all he has to do is wake up and go to work, come home to a supportive family.
-And of course, the power couple, that both work outside the home, take in plenty of money, call in the maids to take care of the house, and are also happy.

Well, there's a lid for every pot (although sometimes there are just frying pans), so if a woman wants to stay home, she has to find a guy who wants a stay-at-home.

I think women of a different era had tons of work to do around the house. Today, a woman without kids who stays at home is just lazy.

But to each his own. I would feel incredibly used by a sit-at-home woman, but many men don't. They WANT that (apparently), but no one has every been able to explain to my WHY. I guess they think the woman will find another man if she is out in the working world or something like that. Or the men grew up being taught that you have to support dead weight at home or you aren't a man. Or they are focused on one specific woman, and she just unilaterally stays at home once she gets the commitment.

All great stuff. Sounds like Romeo and Juliet, but I want no part of it.

From the Times article: " “We need to ask, ‘How can we get these fathers back involved in their children’s lives?’ ”

But some experts cautioned that Professor Autor’s theory did not necessarily imply that such children would benefit from the presence of their fathers."

There are fathers, and there are fathers. Some single fathers will fight for time with their kids and make it a priority, some will make excuses. One positive thing I think Obama has tried to do is be a positive role model for fatherhood but there needs to be more. Many men simply can't be bothered or don't understand the urgency of childhood. They have no idea how parent and women aren't helping them figure it out. Women are vilifying fathers instead of supporting the relationship because it's easier to vilify the father and exclude him than it is to deal with his (often negative) influence on the family situation.

I agree with you that a lot of men don't know how to parent. But how would they have learned? Most of them grew up without fathers themselves, or in households where the mother ruled the roost and the father was just a walking wallet.

I learned how to parent through reading, and asking questions of other parents I admired (not necessarily mine). Society has devalued fatherhood (with the government's help) so I really don't know how to answer your question, except to encourage men to mentor and lead by example.

There were a few good comments attached to the NY Times article but most of them were the usual revolting "men deserve it!" sentiment along with "how dare you hold women remotely responsible for anything!" and "men are dumb losers that's why they're falling behind!"

Why would any man want to participate in or contribute to a society that views and treats them that way? Why? It's not that men have suddenly become incapable. The problem is that men are understandably disinterested in a society that utterly despises them. And, based on the comments accompanying the NY Times article, that society is nowhere near changing its attitude toward men. Let it burn.

Are single-moms going to raise little boys to be the Alpha Men that adult women want? No, the harried single-mom, and female teachers aid this effort, is going to raise the boy as a highly cooperative unit in the school system. Women say they want competent, cooperative, compassionate men. And many women think that is the ideal, they have a shorthand term for that type of man, loser or Beta.

Women want roasted ice cubes. A big strong provider not easily swayed by opinions of others and a female best friend that can cooperate to create a baby after she makes partner.

You see a rise in what many call slacker boys as the increase in single-moms raise boys. Single-moms aren't going to push little boys to test their limits, take chances, and recover from failures. They will raise security-minded cogs in the system and then complain there are no good men when they want a real man.

Many of these 'slacker boys' have dads in the home. I see it all over. It's not just the single moms. It's cultural, but it can be fought by various means, but it primarily requires time and effort spent with the kids.

Yeah, but a lot of those dads are, as I said in my post, walking wallets. The boys grow up knowing that Mom rules the family and Dad is just a wage slave. Likely Dad himself grew up in a single-mom home, or with a Dad who was also a walking wallet.

I really get sick of seeing men put women up on a pedestal.

Women are human beings. They are not more valuable than you, in fact if you have a skill that you make money with and she sits on her duff ... you are more valuable than her. Women are only human beings. They are not goddesses.

Some people may wonder why I even have to say that. Lots and lots and lots (did I say lots?) of men see them as some kind of alien life form. The joke is that the worse a woman treats a man in some regards, the more he values her. The high maintenance b!tch MUST be worth a lot more, because she acts like she is.

Start picking up on reality and quit getting manipulated. Women are not worth what you think they are. Once you see that, all of a sudden they get real easy to have sex with and to talk to.

Marriage is a plus for a woman. she gets a provider and protector and a companion. A man gets a burden. She damned well better be worth it. She usually isn't, anymore. It's the women who need to become attractive again.

It is a liability. In general, having a family is a liability. But "they" don't want to market it that way. Especially when you get right down to it and take away all the fluffy feel good terms. Tradcon feminists cloak marriage in terms of "honor" and that you will be admired if you become the good family provider. Of course it is subjective bar though if you deserve honor and admiration based on a woman's emotional whims.

38 years old, multiple bachelor's degrees, master's degree, good job, own my own house, and aside from a mortgage am debt free. I'm also single.

In short I'm the one all these women say they want. I also just so happen to not be an alpha male. In a nutshell, that can tell you what my success with the opposite sex has been like over the 25 years I claim to be eligible to date.

I see articles like this, and they're still fem-centric. Men are the biggest jerks in the world, they fail at everything and generally suck at life. Why won't they "man up".

To them, I ask "What's in it for me?" And since they're unlikely to answer this, here's a short list:

-A woman who's an "alpha widow" for whom I must settle, and for whom anything I do will never be good enough.

-The opportunity to be a pawn of the divorce-industrial complex

- The responsibility to insulate a woman from all her failures while simultaneously reinforcing the notion that she is strong an independent.

-The responsibility to sacrifice everything for very little in return so that she may have everything with very little sacrifice.

- That I am to suffer all her slings and arrows with grace, dignity, and silence, under threat of dire consequences or worse, governmental intervention, if I disagree or object.

- That what is hers is hers, and what is mine is hers as well.

- That I am to bear 50%+ of the responsibility for rearing the kid, yet am accorded none of the rights of ownership in society, and especially not in court.

-That ultimately, men are the root of all evil and by being male, I am the root of all that is evil and ugly in the world.

In short, what's in it for me? Not much.

Steve, I hear the same complaints from the "good" women out there.
It think the real trouble is weeding through the users on both sides, to find the good, true partners.
Don't give up!! The good ones are out there! I know plenty of good ones on both sides (and unfortunately, have seen plenty of users in both genders)
Many men and women want to give up, I hear them say it. Some have... Saying that the benefit of finding that "one" is not worth the hassle of weeding through the tramps, users, etc.
I guess each person has to make his/her own decision on the risk/benefit of his/her search. And each person has to determine how he is going to approach that search. For instance, are there red flags you can look for early so you can avoid "pain" of a long relationship that fails? How do you want to approach your search so that you can ensure the most honest results? Can you get the help of friends? Others?
From someone who has felt just as bad about the opposite sex at times, and then realized that I have put myself in prolonged situations, LONG past seeing red flags, I realized that I have to know my worth and search for a partner.
It sounds like that is where you may be. Know your worth, search for a PARTNER. You are right, there is not much in it for you if you find some entitled user girlfriend/wife. But if you know you deserve a partner who respects, admires and takes care of you, that is what you will find, you won't settle for anything less...

When I see men like Steve Canyon complain about women I think he must be approaching the wrong ones because I know there are great women out there. But just as men complain that the women are all drawn to the alpha male bad boys, women know that men are drawn to bitchy, manipulative women. I know lots of happily married, happily single and divorced people. The bottom line is that it's not easy to find the right person and sometimes people waste time with the wrong person, choose poorly and marry them for the wrong reasons. Sometimes it's just luck that they find the right person. What I can't tolerate are people who won't take responsibility for their part in the state of their relationships.

jmarie - if you are replying to a post, it's customary to address what is in the post you're replying to. Being dismissive doesn't encourage anyone to take you seriously and is a very good indication of how you behave. The fact is that our society, family courts, and law enforcement have made a huge industry out of divorce, domestic violence, and countless other ways that good men are punished for being good men. Until society begins to hold women accountable and remove the extreme risks inherent in relationships and marriage to women, they will all increasingly become more unattractive to men.

Marie, I think his point is that the legal and social structures are all there and available to almost any women. True, a morally honest woman will not exploit that -- but it's still there. And if you're a guy with a career and a few assets, it's always going to be on the back of your mind, especially if you grew up in a situation like that, which a lot of men have these days.
