It is an uncomfortable truth that most educators simply do not want to talk about. Females are dramatically outperforming males on every educational level, and many are wondering what this means for our future. If men do not feel a strong sense of purpose and meaning, they can get into trouble really quickly. As I write this article, the vast majority of those that abuse drugs are men, the vast majority of those that commit violent crimes are men, and the vast majority of those that we put into prison are men. I began researching this article by looking into the fact that the labor participation rate for men has been declining for decades, but our problems run much deeper than that. Today, so many men feel lost. Millions of them don’t have a sense of direction, millions of them don’t have anything that really drives or motivates them, and millions of them are deeply depressed and greatly dissatisfied with life.
For a lot of them, it started very early. As Dr. Michael Thompson told CBS News, all across America girls are outperforming boys at every educational level…
“Girls outperform boys in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college, and graduate school,”says Dr. Michael Thompson, a school psychologist who writes about the academic problems of boys in his book, “Raising Cain.” He says that after decades of special attention, girls are soaring, while boys are stagnating.
“Girls are being told, ‘Go for it, you can do it. Go for it, you can do it.’ They are getting an immense amount of support,” he says. “Boys hear that the way to shine is athletically. And boys get a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a student. Does being a good student make you a real man? I don’t think so… It is not cool.”
Perhaps one of the big reasons why young males are so drawn to sports is because it allows them to do the sorts of things the come naturally to males. Sporting events allow young males to engage in battle, to hunt and to conquer. Yes, it is a simulated environment, but sporting events really do bring out something primal in young boys.
We all have natural tendencies, and it appears that modern forms of schooling are doing a much better job of connecting with females. In fact, one extremely large study found that girls all over the world are substantially outperforming boys in the classroom…
According to a recent study from University of New Brunswick in Canada, girls have been outperforming boys consistently through the years. It is a popular belief that boys perform better in subjects like Math and Science; however, a review of 308 studies involving more than 1.1 million children across the globe has challenged this stereotype. The study looked at data from 1914 to 2011 and the findings suggest that girls do better in school than boys in the classroom regardless of the material.
So it isn’t just in the United States that this is happening.
And it is a trend that does not seem to diminish with age.
Young women are dominating in high schools all over the nation, and at one high school in Massachusetts girls make up 70 to 80 percent of the students in advanced placement classes…
At graduation ceremonies last June at Hanover High School in Massachusetts, it was the ninth year in a row that a girl was on the podium as school valedictorian. Girls also took home nearly all the honors, including the science prize, says principal Peter Badalament.
“[Girls] tend to dominate the landscape academically right now,” he says, even in math and science.
The school’s advanced placement classes, which admit only the most qualified students, are often 70 percent to 80 percent girls. This includes calculus. And in AP biology, there was not a single boy.
I suppose the silver lining for young men is that if they really want to meet more girls they should just work really, really hard to get into those AP classes.
But the truth is that this is no joking matter. At this point, higher education in the United States is totally dominated by women. Just check out these numbers…
Women earned approximately 57 percent of the bachelor’s degrees awarded by U.S. institutions of higher education in the 2016-2017 academic year, according to data released this week by the National Center for Education Statistics, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education.
That, according to NCES data, makes 2016-2017 the eighteenth straight academic year in which women have earned approximately 57 percent of the bachelor’s degrees awarded by U.S. colleges and universities.
Did you understand what that excerpt was saying?
Women have received about 57 percent of all bachelor’s degrees in this country for 18 years in a row.
Our future doctors, lawyers, politicians and societal leaders come from our pool of college graduates, and the numbers tell us that women are going to be dominating those fields for the foreseeable future.
So what will men be doing?
Well, in recent years more of them have been dropping out of the labor force than ever before. The following comes from the New York Times…
Among women, the share out of the labor force has fallen from 66 percent in 1950 to 43 percent today. That is not surprising in light of changing social norms and the greater career opportunities now open to women.
Men, however, exhibit the opposite long-term trend. In 1950, 14 percent of men were out of the labor force. Today, that figure stands at 31 percent.
For those of you that prefer graphics, here is a chart from the Federal Reserve that shows this staggering decline over the last several decades. Please note that we are currently at a much lower level than we were at during the last major recession…
If men aren’t working, how are they supporting themselves?
For many, the social safety net provided by the government is an easy answer. Here is more from the New York Times…
One might wonder how these less educated, prime-age men support themselves after leaving the labor force. The social safety net plays a role. In a study for the Mercatus Center of George Mason University, Scott Winship reports that “75 percent of inactive prime-age men are in a household that received some form of government transfer payment.” Mr. Winship believes that government disability benefits in particular are one reason for the lack of interest in work.
For others, living with Mom and Dad for as long as possible is the solution. Today, a staggering 38.4 percent of all Millennials live with their parents, and that number seems to keep going up with each passing year.
We live during an era of dramatic societal change, and many are concerned about where all of this change is taking us.
Yes, we need a society in which females can thrive, but we also need a society in which males can thrive as well, and right now that simply is not happening.

The biggest reason why females out perform males in education is become they have a huge maturity advantage. Women mature 4 to 8 years earlier than males.
Females also out perform males in the work place because they don,t know how good is good enough were as men have been in the work place a lot longer know how good is good enough and only do good enough to be good enough.
Women not knowing how good is good enough give everything they do their all and consequencyt outperform males .
And statistically,because men are nuerologically more complex than women,there is a wider spectrum of outputs, as most profound geiuses are males but so are some of the most mentally handicapped,counterproductive,mentally disturbed and certain mental disorders,like Autism and Schizophrenia,are more prevalent among males, but some of this article’s content is far too opinionated,as men run the economies of today and the majority of breadwinners,even in this modernised society filled with wise and ambitious individuals of both genders,happen to be men, his claim sopunds rather theoretical,IMO. It’s still wonderful that women have showcased their potential,nonetheless
And yet,the majority of doctors,engineers,researchers,inventors,CEOs,technologists,programmers,business magnates and scientists are males,however they have definitely had plenty of support and assistance from other men and women alike behind the scenes. IQ,talents and potential share no correlation whatsover and I am proud to have met numerous brilliant women. But just bear in mind that in some of those countries where women are outperforming their male counterparts,the are millions more women,so that fits,some teachers,educational psychologists,psychiatrists and other specialists have argued that the traditional schooling system is slightly more conducive to the female brain,and they only outperform men by maybe 2-3%. Also, while men are more likely to drop out of school/varsity,in easily half of those cases, they are doing so for self-sufficient or enterprising reasons. So in a nutshell,while women seem to have more ease working with the system,men seem to have a slight edge at beating the system,so it all balances
In a nutshell,both genders are brilliant in their own ways
@ Maria…….whaaaaaaaaaattttttttt????? Satan fooled mankind through the woman first. Using emotional manipulation and abusing their natural compassion and intuition. It is not a victory if the other side suffers. Women “winning” is not a real victory if men are losing. Don’t women ever love their men ? If yes, then why would they want them to be losing or lesser or less than.? Oppressing men as a change and new idea still keeps us all slaves of a crappy system where we all lose in the end. This is the problem of duality….I win ….you lose…… We must all win or we have nothing worth keeping.
I like what Tim said. He gets it. This is essentially a bullshit article that helps divide men and women. First of all, testing and I.Q. skills are not the only or even the best ways of measuring intelligence. So when applied broadly as this analysis is doing, it’s meaningless and worthless. You can believe them if you want to (the numbers) but it’s a stupid thing to do. Girls are also notoriously good at adapting and “giving you what you want to hear” so they excel at this type of testing. It doesn’t mean they are smarter or out-performing anyone except that they learn the rules and the ropes and jump through the required hoops. Like circus animals. Perhaps men are saying : “Fuck the hoops. We don’t want to play this game anymore.” Modern society especially in this Feminist dominated anti-white male environment offers little to no reward and even punishments for men even trying to be engaged in this life-style anymore. So a large number are simply dropping out of the race and saying “Fuck it!” . They’re not “stupid” or incapable of competing and “winning” (whatever that means), they simply don’t give a fuck anymore. They don’t care if the world ends today because what is presented and offered sucks to the point where people just are refusing to participate anymore. They are not going to pretend to be the happy slave anymore. So they drink, play games, avoid commitment , watch porn and masturbate, and get with any living girl that will have them once in awhile. Rinse and repeat. Can’t blame them. This is what “feminism” has done. Congrats women ! Men no longer give a fuck about you anymore and are no longer willing to surrender their lives to make you happy. The best of them die gently and the worst of them are selfish pricks. But it’s what you wanted………right ???? The upside to this is that men will start to rediscover their own power and eventually take the world back from the snowflakes who think every 3rd male is a stalker-rapist-Jeffrey Dahmer.
It has alot to do with over-vaccination of males (via blood brain barrier) I think, and course there is a doubt the system is rigged to discriminate against males. Total eugenics total divide and conquer they want it to be so obvious so we as men and women fight each other. Now that we know the problem we can change things but people must not fall to deep into the battle of the sexes mentality.
Here’s an interesting article and an editorial series from the Epoch Times:
“Communism Wants to Destroy Families Through Struggle Within the Home” – URL: https://www.theepochtimes.com/communism-wants-to-destroy-families-through-struggle-within-the-home_2561723.html
“How The Specter of Communism Is Ruling Our World” – URL: https://www.theepochtimes.com/how-the-specter-of-communism-is-ruling-our-world
Have fun reading them.
this is nothing new at all….LONG before the ‘ you can do it!” movement, this was the case…when I was in school, back in the 1960’s, this type of thing was known by everyone………so you are ‘kinda’ making a big deal out of old news!!!!
Well, there may have been new people born since the 1960’s to whom it IS news. With this speed of developments worldwide people of today may be behind yesterdays news.
Let’s be gentle, let’s be tolerant, let’s be beautiful.
It’s such a joke. Let the Earths Matriarchy find itself in front of an Alien Patriarchy and see what happens. I cannot see the ”let’s just get along” female mentality or the ”kill the bitch for her hairstyle” social norm working out either…But hey! We’re all realists and brave and shit..let’s go against 50,000 years of evolution in the hope that this NEW THANG is better and when its not… then what?
I don’t wanna read it. I can so very well understand that this happens. Men have had power for so so so very long, whether we wanted it or not. And that made them lazy, and women sharper. AND of course a lot of men frustrated. Of course the wrong men were in power. Nothing to do to get at the top and remain there, and doing what ever they wanted. That was satan’s message. Do what you want, although it certainly wasn’t for free. And they made a mess out of it. Woman, children and animals for the sex and all the rest for their money and richness and selfish well being.
It’s gonna be hard work to come together again. But we SHALL. Become the beautiful well doing creatures we once seem to have been. Each in our own speed on our own pathes. May peace, happiness and abundance be for all of us. Blessings to everyone.
@Maria You’re so full of crap. Talk about ungrateful? Nice way to insult and generalize men’s history, while apply a mocking balm to mask the lingering affront. We”ve become lazy? Utter nonsense. It’s more a case of suppressing our abilities and pioneering spirit to make way for the oh-so delicate sensibilities of the female of the species, whom can’t hack it unless given special attention. Do you honestly think we as a species would be where we’re at technologically, scientifically, medically, etc. speaking were it not for men’s contributions? Please.
