“The degree of flakiness has taken over society. I can’t be the only one hesitant to initiate social gatherings with friends or acquaintances I’d like to get to know better because I know there’s a good chance they’ll cancel. I mean, before COVID-19.

“Issues facing boys and men. American schools function in a way that is very biased against boys. Boys are overmedicated and punished for their behavior. Men face serious uphill battles with family law, and that’s just a handful. All the talk of gender equality is specific to women.

“Parents should be held responsible for their children’s actions. When a person receives condemnation, or when a crime is committed, the person’s parents should be held accountable as well for bringing awareness to them.

Otherwise, society will always be whole of entitled parents, i.e. parents who are used to mentally abusing their kids with toxic behavior because it’s not a crime.”
