Wegen sexistischer Geschlechterpolitik: Immer mehr Männer treten in den Streik

Dieser Tage ist in den USA das Buch "Men on Strike" erschienen, verfasst von der renommierten Psychologin Dr. Helen Smith. Geht man nach der Amazon-Seite zum Buch sind die Verkaufszahlen und die Rezensionen stark. Karin Agness, leitendes Mitglied des Independent Women's Forum und Präsidentin des Networks of Enlightened Women (NEW), stellt das Werk für die Website "American Thinker" vor:

According to Dr. Helen Smith in her new book, Men on Strike: Why Men are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream -- and Why it Matters, one reason is that society is stacking the deck against men, causing many to go "on strike" from traditional responsibilities. These men aren't just lazy, but instead are making choices based on incentives.

Smith writes, "Most men are not acting irresponsibly because they are immature or because they want to harm women; they are acting rationally in response to the lack of incentives today's society offers them to be responsible fathers, husbands and providers."

Smith argues that feminism has gone too far, creating a feminized world of female privilege, where men no longer are treated as equals. She cites examples of men opting out of college, marriage, and fatherhood.

(...) Smith adds to the popular discussion on the status of men by highlighting the role society plays in determining where men are today. Take education. On some campuses, the ratio is already 60% female to 40% male. The University of Vermont in Burlington has so many women that it is often referred to as "Girlington." Interestingly, instead of celebrating the dominance of women on campus, when I visit campuses with an uneven ratio like this, a common complaint from young women is about the lack of men.

(...) Smith's book is a reminder that life should not be a zero-sum game between men and women. She writes, "Our society has forgotten the wonder of men in its quest for retribution against men and boys who often weren't even alive when women were being discriminated against."
