Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency standards in reading, math, and science. The average sperm count of men in the U.S. drops 1.5 percent every year; one in five young men are not fertile. The gap between male and female suicides has tripled in the United States since the Great Depression. Mass shootings — which are among the most horrific acts of destruction a person can commit — have tripled in the U.S. since 2011, and most are committed by males.
The Boy Crisis is a book that frames the data in a warranted crisis narrative by articulating its origins: the “purpose void,” dad-deprivation, and the rise of ADHD. The boy crisis is, in the broadest sense, a health crisis, one that everyone, regardless of gender or politics, should seek to address. Wisely, therefore, The Boy Crisis does not position itself in opposition to feminism nor pin blame on any individual or group. Its approach is consistently conciliatory.
