Andrei Misandry in the Herald

A little puff piece but illustrative never the less: Boys read as much as girls, but easier books.

Its a meme isn't it, girls are smarter than boys.

But we all should know that the educational establishment has been captured by women, in some cases ardent feminists, and they in some sense define what is "easier" or "more difficult".

And even to some extent what is important to teach and how it is taught.

The deck is stacked against our boys who are not really allowed strong masculine role models nor given them.

And people wonder why our society is becoming more violent.

Male frustration might have something to do with it.

Worse, it's now women who define what's an 'acceptable' role-model for boys.
Last night we sat and watched the documentary "The Endurance", the story of Ernest Shackleton's polar expedition.
A story of courage, endurance and an absolute refusal to give up in the face of impossible hardships.
This was a very well-known story when I was at school, part of something every boy absorbed as an attitude to emulate if we were ever to become men.
But what now? How many boys grow up even knowing about such men?
In an age when "heroes" are footy players and serial adulterers it's no wonder so many boys are adrift, with no acceptable outlets for what are essentially masculine urges.
