Society is failing our boys

David French is fast becoming one of my favorite writers. Follow him on Twitter: @DavidAFrench

Here he nails it: Our culture is unlearning masculinity, and boys are paying a steep price.

He makes many great points, including these two:
Make no mistake, if these numbers showed an equivalent (and increasing) educational gender gap running in the opposite direction, the feminist Left would declare a cultural emergency. Indeed, it has declared a cultural emergency in spite of the dominant educational performance of women.
And ...
It is important to see and know that throughout that young man’s life, his dad wasn’t just nurturing him, he was also challenging him — pushing him to be stronger mentally, physically, and emotionally. To that end, it’s time to remember that strength is a virtue, rightly channeled aggression creates and preserves civilization itself, and there is nothing at all inherently toxic about masculinity.
