It has been going on for quite awhile as someone already posted.

But I really do not agree with everything that is in article the. I still feel that
families that are whole, meaning married, male and female households,
that are basically wholesome, don't have those statistics that are
quoted.

The family is in jeopardy. A traditional family is no longer the norm. Men
think they can raise children together and so do single females or
a gay female couple.

The family used to be the basis of society. From the family came morals
and work ethics and role models.

This new socialistic era we live in has done everything it could to have
this wholesome and solid basis for a child's development watered down
and truthfully, made to appear less desirable. What can you expect
when the Government monetarily supports single parent households?
It just propagates the idea of a single-parent household.

The media and the left are doing a superb job in breaking down
morality in our country. And, we are all giving it the power to
continue to do so. Everyone of us is to blame for this terrible
downfall in our society.

Marianne I agree on all counts. I am saddened by everything and hope that at least I can make a difference somewhere...Does anyone have ideas on how we can make a difference in this strange landscape of SOCIAL CHANGE? HOW can we encourage boys to grow up and be masculine and all that goes with THAT?

On the whole I agree, but there are problems with the blog post. For numbers I do not reply to, I agree with the conclusion. An explanation for #1 is that during the same time period women entered the labor in greater numbers. #2 is effectively the same as #1. #3 can be explained by men taking jobs that are more likely to get cut in a recession, e.g., shipping. #5 can be explained by the requirement for post-secondary education for higher paying jobs. However, I do work with several people who gained significant skills in the military and do not need a college degree; one thing this blog ignored in my opinion is the amount of c*** someone gets from their parents about picking a career in the military. #6: I agree this is a problem; though I disagree this is emasculating. #7 is explained by more men creating startups. That said, the government should not discourage startups. #10: More than half of construction jobs are held by men. #11: More than half of engineering jobs are held by men. #12: This is evidence that men are more inclined to engage in behavior that leads to incarceration and that America is more inclined to enforce the law. A good number of countries have more serious problems with crime than America. #13: This can be explained by an increase in enforcement of the law or by an increase in the number of laws and not by a particular problem with men in general. #14: I agree this is a problem, but this is not limited to America (note the blog title and first few paragraphs imply this is a serious problem in America). #16: This could be explained by men being predisposed to suffer from whatever forces them into special education programs. #17: This is evidence that males are more pre-disposed to playing video games. #18: This is not different from #17. This switches the rate from hours per week to hours per first 21 years of life. Also removes reference to who is playing the video games. #19: This is not different from #17. #20: The SAT is slowly becoming an endurance test and a higher percentage of the less educated population is taking the test now than 40 years ago. #21: What percentage of non-college post-secondary education is attained by men, for example trade school? #22: This is a prediction about the future. Also this makes the same point that 21 does. #23: This is very similar to #21 and #15. #25: This is the same as #14. #26: This is the same as #14. #27: This is the same as #14. #28: This is the same as #14 though it does draw a more general conclusion than #14. Also a higher percentage of children reaching adulthood diminishes the biological need to have large families (biological need as opposed to desire, biological or otherwise). #29: See #28. #31: This is the same as #30. #32: I disagree this is a problem. Utility hole is more descriptive than manhole. I find other languages attachment of gender to nouns to be ludicrous. For example a table in Spanish is una mesa, feminine. (I choose la mesa as it was the first word I thought of). I see no need to to attach gender to nouns. I dislike the over reliance on sheer numbers to scare people. The choice of 32 seems to be a desire to pick a nice round number (in binary). Sidenote: when you see storage sizes as 512mB, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc., GB it is because the numbers are nice and round in binary as opposed to decimal. I believe that the driving force behind these problems is that society has not had time to adjust to the industrial revolution. Every generation brought at least one significant new technology that has changed what society looks like significantly. Prior to the industrial revolution the pace was much slower.

This was meant to have paragraphs. Does anyone know how to force spacing? Pressing enter does not seem to work for me.
