In May of 2019, the Staten Island Borough President James Oddo announced the creation of the Council on Boys and Men becoming the first government agency to address the alarming risk factors to American males. Being the only media present, revealed another crisis, the social climate for American boys is unfriendly, ideological and warped by discriminating gatekeepers. Author Dr. Warren Farrell, was among the speakers, his recently published book titled The Boy Crisis: Why Our Boys Are Struggling And What We Can Do About It was the blueprint for this government council. In 2016, past guest Christina Hoff Sommers, former philosophy professor and author of The War Against Boys, on this show, exposed some of the research by renowned feminist Carol Gilligan as statistically false yet it had been adopted by the U.S. Department of Education. Since the late 90s, this research had been the foundation for the projected image of female students as the oppressed and male students as predator or oppressors. Dr. Farrell has also since reframed this false projection in that both men and women are oppressed and when one sex wins, both sexes lose. When both sexes lose, ask yourself who stands to gain? The Boy Crisis expounds on data collected from generations of men growing up without fathers. The statistics on employment, suicide rates, incarceration, mental health and higher education reveal a silent war waged against the expendable male. Dr. Farrell is an educator, activist and author of seven books on men and womens issues. His books include The Myth of Male Power, Women Cant Hear What Men Dont Say, Does Feminism Discriminate Against Men? and Why Men Are The Way They Are. http://warrenfarrell.com/ yt-drwarrenfarrell
