The Feminization of the American Male…..”Men seem to be becoming less male!”

K-12: The War on Boys and Men

by Bruce Deitrick Price at American Thinker:

“Fox News just announced an upcoming series about the plight of Men in America.

“Men seem to be becoming less male,” Tucker Carlson said.  “Something ominous is happening[.] … Men are taught there is something wrong with them.  We took a close look at the numbers, and we found them so shocking that we’re devoting the month of March to a special series on men in America.”

Carlson concluded, “You’ll be stunned by the scope of the crisis.  We were.  It’s a largely ignored disaster.  It affects every person in America.”

He noted, for example: “Men account for 77 percent of the nation’s suicides, they are more than twice as likely to become alcoholics, they are more likely to die of an overdose than women, and 90 percent of inmates are men.”

So what are the causes?  Eighteen years ago, Christina Hoff Sommers published The War on Boys: How Misguided Feminism Is Harming Our Young Men.  Sommers concluded, “It’s a bad time to be a boy in America.  Boys are less likely than girls to go to college or do their homework.  They’re more likely to cheat on tests, wind up in detention, or drop out[.]”  In short, Sommers found the causes in feminist theory and, more surprisingly, inside the nation’s classrooms.

The dirty big secret here is that our public schools don’t announce social engineering; they simply do it, especially with regard to altering how children view themselves.  Public schools suppress boys and uplift girls in many furtive ways.  This manipulation has been hugely successful: 57% of college students are female; 43% are male.  More women stay in college and earn advanced degree.  Women wear business suits, and men drive pickup trucks.  Culturally similar men and women who used to marry each other are now separated by class differences!

The question still haunts us: how exactly are America’s social engineers able to win this war for females?

The discussion is tricky from every point of view.  However you might describe boys and girls, you’ll invite argument about what is good and what is bad.  If you say girls are “more sensitive,” is that an insult or a compliment?  The Atlantic Monthly nicely dances among many competing viewpoints:

[A] host of cross-cultural studies show that females … are more apt to plan ahead, set academic goals, and put effort into achieving those goals.  They also are more likely than boys to feel intrinsically satisfied with the whole enterprise of organizing their work, and more invested in impressing themselves and their teachers with their efforts[.] … On the whole, boys approach schoolwork differently.  They are more performance-oriented.  Studying for and taking tests taps into their competitive instincts.  For many boys, tests are quests that get their hearts pounding.

David Sortino, a teacher, argues on his blog: “[G]irls work best when sitting in a circle facing each other and find it more comfortable to learn in a group setting.  Instead, boys often excel in a traditional class structure with desks lined in rows, which could support their more competitive energies and attention getting behaviors.

“Girls respond to stress as a threat, which drives blood to the gut rather than to the brain, placing them in a fight or flight persona.  However, for boys, it’s the opposite.  They love to take risks and almost always overestimate their abilities.”

QED: There are big, very real differences.  We should wonder if these differences are artificially induced and then exaggerated.  Oh, so that’s why some schools have all students sitting around tables – because it’s good for girls…?

What we know for sure is that girls are outperforming boys at all levels.  Is this good for the country?  Is it good for the girls?

The Economist reported:

A new study by the OECD [Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development], a club of mostly rich countries, examined how 15-year-old boys and girls performed at reading, mathematics and science.  Boys still score somewhat better at maths, and in science the genders are roughly equal.  But when it comes to the students who really struggle, the difference is stark: boys are 50% more likely than girls to fall short of basic standards in all three areas [emphasis added].

Why are girls performing better at school than their male classmates?

“First,” according to the OECD study, “girls read more than boys.  Reading proficiency is the basis upon which all other learning is built.  When boys don’t do well at reading, their performance in other school subjects suffers too.”

The basis upon which all other learning is built.  That is ominous.  Suppose social engineers figured out how to undercut reading.

One statistical site states that “[w]omen are more likely to develop solid reading skills.  Around 38% of men report reading at the lowest proficiency levels, compared to 33% for women.”

Suppose our social engineers routinely seek to widen this gap.  That would be feasible because boys and girls respond in different ways to absurd instruction.

Girls, as noted, feel more comfortable in a group setting.  They want the whole group to move along harmoniously; they want their teacher to be successful.  The result is that they are more patient and long-suffering with dumb curricula and wrongly trained teachers.  Boys, on the other hand, are not so patient.  If there is a skill or a task, boys want to do well quickly.  Fair enough.  But what if the curriculum is inherently stupid and impossible to master?  Boys at some point will declare, I can’t do this.  I don’t want to do this.  I’m walking away.

Today, in Common Core, we see many absurdities almost perfectly designed to drive boys to escape and evasion.  The internet is full of videos of children weeping because instruction seems so illogical.  Little seven-year-olds are already beat up.

But the paradigm of stupid instruction remains Whole Word.  That’s where the student has to memorize the English language one word at a time.  The famous Dr. Samuel Orton, a neurologist, did a study in 1926-28 and declared that this method doesn’t work…and, in addition, it will damage every child it touches.  He was exactly correct, and the Education Establishment knows it.  What do we see in the schools of America?  Millions of semi-literate children with messed up minds.

StatisticBrain claims that 32 million Americans “can’t read.”  Tens of millions more read marginally.  This is a vast national  tragedy.  Ask yourself, why is this tolerated?  Perhaps because it makes the population easier to control.  Perhaps because it enables the stratification of the sexes.

You want to fix it?  Fix reading.  I think the smarter people understand this.  But the Education Establishment won’t let go because this particular stupid curriculum is the foundation for making women more successful and making men less successful.

Here is a good overview by TeacherMag:

But what if today’s classroom and curriculum structure catered (however unintentionally) to one gender more than the other?  Many researchers say this is now the case, with boys facing an upward struggle from primary school on.  For many boys, co-educational public schools can be uncomfortable, unfriendly, unproductive places.  Teaching styles and disciplinary habits are often not suited to the average boy[.] … In learning environments biased against their strengths, boys may become turned off or frustrated and may attempt to have their needs met by seeking negative attention.  This rebellion completes the circle of failure … with many boys labelled as troublemakers or diagnosed with hyperactivity.

That can mean drugs, which make boys weaker and less manly….”

Note by ghr:  There is no doubt that compared to the almost  three generations I have lived   the American ‘girl’  (by birth) has been butched up in feature and dress, fattened up tremendously everywhere, and ditsier by head.   Mother is working.  Dad might be absent.  Schools have become empty of learning, loaded with twits of all ages and sexes.   No history is taught.  No history books allowed for they advance the story of the human male…..a crime of the first order in the fascist state of Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary R. Clinton.

What IS taught is the garbage poison arriving from feminist mouths of all colors, shapes, sexes and sizes, that there is no differences between human female and male animals.

Then their is the black  feminist-atheist lie sold in the American knowledge-free, hate white filled public and private schools where ever they exist, that the human white male animal  has been the source of  World evil throughout human history…..which is at maximum ten years of racist memorization  in the American urban black so-called “education” system…..After all that is what the Sovietized Urban Black-White Racist leftists sell in their protests, attacks, and burnings since November, 2016.
And don’t forget the tricks played by the Charles Blow news world  of racist sales in the world closer to Wall Street.    Hillary and her herd are certain that males  outside of her leftist government ilk  are deplorables  and worse.   She is a man hater especially if he is white.
Worst of all, the arrogant leftists, especially the wealthy  Jewish political and intellectual LEFT led in my day by Alan Dershowitz,   have worked overtime during the past  sixty  years  following World War II to destroy JudeoChristianity, the very  core of human decency, freedom,  and civilization, the greatness upon which  our American republic was based, the civilization now conquered by corporate greed and the worship of ignorance to make human male and female EQUAL!

Trump Enemy Bloomberg Supports President’s Meeting with North Koreans

Trump’s Historic Bet on Kim Summit Shatters Decades of Orthodoxy

Donald Trump took the biggest gamble of his presidency on Thursday, breaking decades of U.S. diplomatic orthodoxy by accepting an invitation to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The bet is that Trump’s campaign to apply maximum economic pressure on Kim’s regime has forced him to consider what was previously unthinkable: surrendering the illicit nuclear weapons program begun by his father. If the president is right, the U.S. would avert what appeared at times last year to be a steady march toward a second Korean War.

It was classic Trump, showing an unerring confidence to get the better end of any negotiation. But it was also Trump in another way: high risk and high reward, with little regard for those in the foreign policy establishment who worry it’s too much, too soon.

“He’s taking a risk,” said Patrick Cronin, senior director of the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. “By seizing an opportunity for a summit meeting, a decision that would have taken much more time in another administration, the president has said, ‘I’m going to go right now. And we’re going to test this.”’

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared to introduce a bit of wiggle room for Trump on Friday, telling reporters at a briefing that the president wouldn’t proceed with the meeting “until we see concrete actions that match the words and the rhetoric of North Korea.” She didn’t elaborate, though a South Korean envoy said Kim pledged to stop nuclear tests until the summit.

A White House official later said the administration isn’t adding conditions for the meeting beyond holding Kim to his pledge not to conduct new tests.

There is no protocol for Trump to follow or guidebook for him to fall back on: he would be the first sitting U.S. president ever to meet with a North Korean leader.



The Dem’s Fascist State of California Already Established by Buying Illegal Immigrants!

Orange County’s Largest Homeless Camp Cleared Out

Last September I wrote about a homeless camp which had grown up along the bike path which stretches along the Santa Ana River in Orange County, California. Residents in the area complained about trash, human waste, and crime. People living in the camps were constantly in fear of violence from those nearby, many of whom have substance abuse or mental health problems. Last week, after a lengthy legal battle involving the ACLU, a judge ruled that Orange County could begin to clear out the camps so long as people were given a place to go. Fox News reports:

Trash trucks and contractors in hazmat gear have descended on the camp and so far removed 250 tons of trash, 1,100 pounds of human waste and 5,000 hypodermic needles.

But the effort hasn’t been without controversy as homeless advocates, the American Civil Liberties Union and a federal judge have all weighed in on the fate of some-700 people evicted from their home along the Santa Ana River — next to Angel Stadium of Anaheim and a few miles from Disneyland, outside Los Angeles.

Spitzer, whose district includes the encampment, has battled the advocates since last fall when the decision was first made to close the camp. The ACLU and others filed a federal civil rights lawsuit to stop this and several stays have ensued until last week, when the final go-ahead was granted.

For those being evicted, a mediation with U.S. District Court Judge David Carter offered the choice of a bed in a shelter or a month-long motel voucher; medical aid; drug treatment; job training; storage for their belongings and housing for pets at the county animal shelter.

So far, 544 people have been moved to shelters and motel rooms and approximately 100 remain at the riverbed. Crews counted 207 tents, but it is unclear if they are occupied.

The LA Times reported the offer of free vouchers for motels and food attracted people from other areas who were looking for a handout:

As word spread about motel vouchers, homeless people from different parts of Southern California began streaming in, trying to get their names on a waiting list.

“We know there are new faces and they’re exploiting the goodness of the county. But we know who’s been here because we have inventory,” said County Supervisor Todd Spitzer.

County Chief Executive Frank Kim said county workers are familiar with the people who have called the riverbed home. But that hasn’t stopped new people from arriving, he said.

“Just yesterday, I was out here and people would open up their cars and a bunch of other people would step out with their sleeping bags, looking for a motel voucher,” Kim said. “We want to be clear that vouchers are being offered only to the riverbed residents. But we will work with all the homeless to help connect them to other services they need.”

But for the people who had been living in the camp, this seems to have been a positive step. As I pointed out last year, there are reports of fights and even rapes taking place at this camp. Drug dealers, who move in to profit from the people with substance abuse problems, discourage anyone calling the police so most crimes aren’t reported.

Alice Simpson, 57, originally from Alabama, said she was “thrilled to get into safety.” She stood in the shade of a tree, counting down the minutes until transportation arrived to take her to the Bridges at Kraemer Place, a county-run shelter in Anaheim.

“I’m very comfortable with this move and I want to go in without fear,” said Simpson, who has been diagnosed with symptoms associated with schizophrenia. “I have been living in fear at this camp and the person I call my best friend is 911. Maybe that will change now.”

Now the people who live near this camp won’t have to deal with the problems it creates and the bike path can become a community asset for recreation again. The problem, of course, is that all of this is going to cost money. There are an estimated 5,000 homeless people in Orange County, but that’s a fraction of the number in nearby areas, including Los Angeles. This effort to deal with a problem has now created a cleared out campsite along the river which hundreds of homeless people from LA could descend on and inhabit.

Judge David Carter, who approved clearing the camp, stood nearby while it was being cleared. There was no violence and no arrests were made, at least so far. As this CBS 2 report makes clear, police will be revisiting the site for several weeks, encouraging people to accept help or move on. Eventually, if that fails to work, they will arrest those who remain behind or those who show up to take their place. In the long run, that’s going to be the only way to keep this area clear, i.e. enforce the law against camping there.

Sweet Flake, Eugene Robinson, Popular Urban Leftist, Blames Guns’ Brainy Ability to Think, Travel, Select Victims

The Issue Is Not Mental Health. It’s Guns.

WASHINGTON — Don’t tell me the issue is mental health. Save the nonsense about “good guys” with weapons somehow being the answer. The truth is this: There would have been no tragic shooting Wednesday in Parkland, Florida, if a troubled young man had not gotten his hands on a military-style assault rifle and as much ammunition as he wanted.

Many people knew that Nikolas Cruz was troubled, violent and liable to explode. Yet nothing kept him from acquiring the gun he allegedly used to kill 17 students and faculty members at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in yet another senseless slaughter of the kind that still shocks but no longer surprises.

President Trump addressed the nation, saying we must “answer hate with love” and vowing to “tackle the difficult issue of mental health.” But he made no mention of gun control — meaning he might as well have said nothing at all.

According to news reports in The Washington Post and other outlets, Cruz, 19, had been repeatedly suspended and then expelled from the high school for disciplinary problems. He had sought and received treatment at a mental health clinic, but stopped attending. He showed signs of depression. His posts on social media were so unsettling that they scared acquaintances away. His father died several years ago and his mother, with whom he was close, passed away around Thanksgiving. The leader of a white nationalist group claimed that Cruz was a member.

And he had a fetish for guns.

To say there were warning signs about Cruz is a gross understatement. There were flashing red lights and blaring sirens.

“I think everyone in this school had it in the back of their mind that if anyone was supposed to do it, it was most likely going to be him,” a former classmate told the Post — “do it” meaning the kind of homicidal rampage we saw Wednesday. A math teacher at the school told the Miami Herald that Cruz had threatened students before being expelled, and that “he wasn’t allowed on campus with a backpack on him.”

It was obvious that a tragedy might be coming. Yet, as a society, we refused to take the steps that could have prevented it.

How many alienated and disturbed young men are out there, rattling around peaceful suburbs like Parkland? Many thousands, surely. Some will get the help they need; some won’t. Most will never act on their violent urges; some will.

It is impossible to imagine a mental health system with the scope, authority and resources necessary to prevent every Parkland or Newtown or Columbine. In Cruz’s case, in fact, the existing system worked: He got professional help. School administrators knew he could pose a threat. According to news reports, a tipster even tried to alert the FBI that Cruz wanted to be “a professional school shooter.”

Yet in February 2017, Cruz was able to legally purchase an AR-15-style assault rifle from a local gun shop. With no criminal record or anything else in his past that would raise an official red flag, he sailed through a background check.

Apologists for the National Rifle Association will cynically use this circumstance to argue against a common-sense measure that four out of five Americans support: universal background checks for gun purchases. That wouldn’t have stopped the Parkland massacre, they will claim — diverting attention from the fact that universal checks could have prevented some mass shootings in the past and would surely prevent some in the future.

At the heart of the matter, though, lies the gun.

There are disturbed individuals like Cruz in countries around the world, but only the United States suffers mass shootings so regularly that they have almost become routine. Why? Because you can’t shoot up a school or a night club or a country music concert the way it was done in Parkland, Orlando and Las Vegas if you don’t have access to weapons of war that were designed for the battlefield.

The Supreme Court has made clear that the Second Amendment, while guaranteeing the right to keep and bear arms, is not absolute. The Bill of Rights was written in the era of muskets and dueling pistols. We don’t allow private citizens to own surface-to-air missiles capable of downing an airliner, so why do we let them own assault rifles designed not to shoot targets or game but to kill human beings in large numbers?

This is madness. Look at those grieving parents in Parkland. Know that because of the NRA, others surely will soon join their ranks…..

(ghr:   Wow!  Can those guns sure get around to cause trouble!!!!   I wonder how they can drive cars, pay bus fares, pull their triggers!)

DACA Brats Attack Charles Schumer

DACA kids at it again with targeted mobbing of Schumer

by Monica Showalter   at American Thinker:

“The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, so touted on the left as 800,000 valedictorians whose only wish is to love and serve America, are at it again, this time thuggishly mobbing Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer for his refusal to shut down the entire U.S. government for their sake.

Shouting “we won’t let him sleep,” these charmers marched onto the personal home of the Democratic senator in Brooklyn, in a scene reminiscent of the early Obama years, when SEIU mobs targeted bank officials at their homes and terrorized their children.

It follows similar DACA mobbings to shut down Disneyland and target other congressional representatives, including their surprise scream-fest against House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, a DACA champion.

The mob attacks show us something creepy about the DACA kids: their outrageous entitlement mentality.  And with each successive mob action, we see even more lawless acts from these lawbreakers, with increasing frequency.

It’s Alinskyite stuff, “picking a target, personalizing it,” which derives from communist tactics.  And don’t think this isn’t exactly what these DACA activists have in mind.  At a standoff rally in Murietta. Calif., a few years ago, a tattooed Salvadoran leader counter-protesting the citizens’ protests against illegal alien-dumping in the city in 2014 told me that yes, he had been a communist guerrilla in El Salvador in the 1980s, and yes, he was up here to advocate for amnesty for illegals because it was his way of getting back at Uncle Sam for all the imperialism out there.  Shipping immigrants who would protest, burn tires, and engage in other mobbery is a punishment to America, he explained.

Here is a photo from that rally of Mexican flag-waving illegals chanting “citi-zen-ship, citi-zen-ship,” meaning American citizenship, even as they wave the flags of other nations

The problem here is that with each screaming act, the DACA kids show Americans just how unworthy they are of U.S. residency and how unfit for citizenship.  Normal Americans write letters and vote if they want change, sometimes holding peaceful demonstrations.  DACA kids seem to be out for blood, making outrageous demands, with ever creepier personalized tactics that wouldn’t be legal from foreign nationals in any other country.  Their extremism is starting to get a grip on the Democrats, who already are in their tree.  They’re the easiest target in a long-term plan to take absolute power.

The correct response from DACA recipients to the America that gave them such chances and benefits is gratitude.  That would be the response if DACA recipients were the people the left says they are.  Issuing demands and insisting that the entire federal government be shut down if they don’t get it, as if we actually owe them something, is something else entirely.

It’s time to start making an example of a few of them, to put a stop to this increasingly creepy revolutionary movement that treats citizenship as an entitlement über alles and whose lawless minions claim, as Hugo Chávez once did, to be using lawful democratic tactics.


The Complete Corruption of the Obama- Hillary Era!
