I encountered a thread titled: what is the biggest problem affecting the (sic) most men today.
The top answers were:
1) lack of purpose 2) loneliness and mental health 3) economics
I read so many comments where men blamed society at large for making men feel unnecessary and for making them feel like they have no inherent value beyond their physical strength, their income, and what they can bring to the table. All of it made me chuckle.
Firstly, society at large has always commodities every individual. Perhaps your family and friends value you for who you are as an individual, but most people in society couldn't give two shits. That's just how we are as humans. These are the same men who would reduce women to a number from 0 to 10 or classify us as either "fuckable" or "not fuckable."
Secondly, the only reason that you men are now feeling the sting of this societal rejection is because women don't need you anymore to survive, at least not in most western countries. You can disguise it behind "society" but we all know that at the heart of it it's because women now have the ability to make their own income and don't HAVE to be with men that y'all are freaking out over not having "societal" approval.
The lack of awareness of the society that they've helped to create and all the self-pity is definitely a sight to behold. Otherwise this is all just too pathetic to behold.
