Social Intimidation of Young Men
Boys, you look at each one as they come along and question how well they are making the step up to young man.
Given the numbers that would now rely on a mother whose primary concern is how he might treat a future partner rather than how he might survive in the world and the workforce, there has to be 000’s of young males who are open to varying degrees of intimidation.
The political gender-neutral buzz word is ‘bullying’ and that pops up on a regular basis in the media in stories relating to females of all ages, and correct me if I’m wrong but I’m not seeing any great degree of concern about bullying of young males, and I’m quite sure this goes on much more than we realize.
When the first girlfriend is a manipulative time waster that’s doing his head in and raiding his bank account and has her claws into his innocence does his mother do something about it or try and ease the pain on behalf of her ‘little sister’?
Is the next generation mother focused on the development of men or have they bought into the Feminist ideal of unquestioning male compliance?
Likewise if the lad does start work in a male dominantated industry, transport, electricity, roading (there’s plenty out there with the gender separation that gives women the soft jobs in the social administration) who is the go-to guy when he is getting a hard time at work – it does happen, and does his mother really have any answer let alone a good one .
Even if it were a gender-nuetral workpkace, how many mothers, who are the key advisor actually understand basic employment conditions to know when he’s being ripped off either accidentally or deliberately by someone in the pay office – it happens.
If life isn’t hard enough already, how many young men simply don’t have access to male advice or even good advice in modern society?
This post, while not quoting any specifics is based on recent discussions with mothers of boys.
So, this is a problem and questions remain;
How big is it?
What are the personal and social effects?
What if anything addresses this issue?
Is there an example that is visible to you or have you recently encountered an incident of social intimitation of a young man?
