While I don’t agree with all the content of this article, it certainly raises some interesting questions about young men failing to grow out of adolescence and become responsible men, capable of being a husband and father. The author, who is a woman, expresses the frustration of a growing number of women who can’t seem to find mature, reliable men.
The paragraph below summarizes the frustration quite forcefully:
Relatively affluent, free of family responsibilities, and entertained by an array of media devoted to his every pleasure, the single young man can live in pig heaven—and often does. Women put up with him for a while, but then in fear and disgust either give up on any idea of a husband and kids or just go to a sperm bank and get the DNA without the troublesome man. But these rational choices on the part of women only serve to legitimize men’s attachment to the sand box. Why should they grow up? No one needs them anyway. There’s nothing they have to do.
It’s interesting that a secular woman confirms the views that John has expressed before on the crisis in manhood and fatherhood as a root cause of our societal problems.
