Somebody's Missing Mr. Happy

"Men are on strike, not necessarily because they are perpetual adolescents or avoiding deep attachments to others but because the reward for being an adult in our society is so low, especially for men.

It’s really simple Psychology 101 (or Economics 101) — make something negative enough and people will avoid it, make it positive, and more people will engage in that particular behavior.

Nowadays, for many men, the video games, magazines, and humor websites are a way to fill one’s time with fun activities that don’t tell you that you suck, are an “unfinished person,” emotionally detached or on your way to jail for fake domestic violence charges. [Women] used to treat men better than this."

  1. LOL.

    Dude, you're about 20+ years too late. But I'll keep it in mind for the future.

    Thanks for the laugh,
