Joining me now psychologist and author of the controversial new book.
Men on strike doctor Helen Smith that is great to have you.
If I mean I'm me and talk about something that everybody going here the issue of in -- -- -- Yeah life why have been gone on strike -- start there.
And gone on strike because.
I feel like the the incentives are just not there for them -- that -- that the -- of marriage and a lot of things from -- -- today are very high and the rewards from their very low.
In the past I think that we had we had so many things may not respect and they had more freedom and they had.
More -- face and today women get married.
I think that they feel like there's much more loss of freedom there are financial -- and there are so many things that have happened.
Women -- sort of risen -- and they've become the bread winners -- may do so many things for the same time we have not looked at the domestic round of the way that men are treated in our society.
And that's that's that's fascinating to me because this is we've just gone through.
All of the forces at work here and find that wages for men are actually less today the median wage -- -- Is less today nine and 68.
The implications of that are extraordinary they can't support.
-- that median.
That's one of the reasons they can't that they can't support him with so lower income women don't want -- -- and -- lower income and probably getting let Mary let them laugh at all ages.
And part of it is not just a bit when -- strike but the women a lot of times don't want lower level man the other thing is when that I can -- highly educated now that they want higher -- man.
And -- -- to college anymore.
Because colleges have become so feminized defensive that a lot of men don't it starts early in the earlier -- and we're.
What do you mean them and -- I think I mean that resonates.
What do you mean.
I mean it.
Everything has become about what girls need what women need it's not about what boys need a lot of times bordering to mastery -- there into.
And you know skill competition and our schools are so filled now with people who only look at -- feel.
Reading books that are down basically for girls and a lot of voice their interest and other things.
They don't want to just sit still and they want to learn it a different type of way and the schools don't allow that we have boys in this country who can't read.
And nobody does anything about that we also have so many female teachers are only 16%.
-- teachers now are men in the elementary schools.
Is that correct yes and those female teachers according to the -- the London school of economics that study.
And they found that you know teachers that coupled with lower marks to boy although some -- -- products -- Well yeah.
-- look the reality is right now society.
It is becoming such a constrained -- that political correctness hide bound orthodoxy is.
Women are doing well let them as well is it might be in for example the pew research -- study just recently.
Showing that women -- -- amount to 40%.
Of the breadwinners but when you look at those numbers 63%.
Of those women.
-- on average earning 23000.
Dollars a year -- they are effectively dependent on the state.
They -- about regulars it's the wrong term.
They're not winning and there's not much bread but what have.
If they don't need men anymore you know I -- -- -- have become a husband and I just found a husband that's a great way to put it -- a little -- let's say how expendable.
And the state is.
It's it's a level of dependency.
That is going to Alter the way we live do you think the American dream itself is at -- I did because I think that it to exclude -- to say the men aren't important his father's an end as.
As fit as -- part of our society -- thing to do that is to have many men who were on the five and who are anticipated to -- -- our man Charles Marie wrote a book coming apart and he looked at perfect -- it's a great book.
But -- found that -- men are dropping out of work and one of the reasons that they're going more doing leisure things and one of the reasons if they can't keep up anymore and they keep going make thirty -- 40000 dollars because a woman can make that much.
You know from the government or other sources that she doesn't need him anymore he can't be.
In his boss there's a lot of respect that flocked there.
Alive an -- if you can come back it would continue the conversation as an important on this important conversation and very very important book.
Which is been on strike it's on sale online and in bookstores every -- -- balloon times dot com for links to support.
Thank you very much thanks -- Bob.
