How can this be such an unpopular opinion?

Young men are dropping out of society because it's abundantly clear nobody gives a shit about them

The majority of homeless people are men. The majority of suicide deaths are men. Young men graduate college less than young women. Young women are out-earning young men. Single women are more likely to own a home than single men. There are gross discrepancies in the amount of government aid available to men and that available to women.

Yet I've never seen women marching to end male homelessness. I've never heard a radio ad about raising money for prostate cancer. I've never seen a commercial asking men if maybe it's time to give college a second chance. Literally, nobody cares if you live or die. Nobody cares if you're educated or fulfilled. Nobody cares about you.

And you will be openly mocked, belittled, and humiliated if you don't fit into the predefined social mold that exists for men. Homeless? Fuck off. Small dick? Haha. Suicidal? Ew.

Why bother trying to be part of society that at best ignores you, and at worst is openly antagonistic towards you? I've seen so many articles like this: "Why are young men dropping out? It must be because educated women scare them." They always come to the same, obtuse, and illogical conclusions. "Men are just stupid/lazy/useless/onerous in some way, I guess. Women are better anyways."

Young men are dropping out because they are treated by society like actual, literal disposable objects. That's the real reason.

Edit: To everyone asking me in the comments why women should be responsible for helping men, this is the reason: Feminism by its literal definition is about fostering gender equality. If men are disproportionately negatively affected by things like homelessness, violence, a lack of education, and presumptions of criminality, then these are inherently feminist issues. If you are a feminist that doesn't care about male problems, then you are not a feminist.

That was the only time in American history that women were actually oppressed. It gave them the right to vote, have certain jobs, and basically be able to function in society. Now it's only yelling at people for not having the same beliefs as you.

That's a popular opinion. It was greatly awarded.

It doesn't work like that.

[–]Skillex99[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Read the rules yourself if you dont believe me

[–]qemist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I know what the rules say but it doesn't work like that. Like in every sub people upvote whatever they agree with. The premise of the sub is broken.

It's popular amongst an incel community. This isn't shocking.

[–]qemist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

/r/unpopularopinion is not an incel sub.

[–]UnLiberal040 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Why is the first insult you guys come up with is incel? You know what, bye bye!

[–]thiccasabricc_0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

This opinion is not unpopuoar, in fact if You share an actual unpopular opinion on that sub You'll get downvoted to the void

[–]thiccasabricc_-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Also, op is just pandering people into giving them awards

[–]qemist0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

The observations are largely correct.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy
