I also read the increase in numbers of autism are partly due to advanced screening.
Personally I believe the spectrum diagnoses is often over diagnose similar to ADHD diagnosis.

It just goes to show that we're evolving as a species. We're trying to seek a higher purpose than just humping, killing, and surviving day to day like our ancestors.

And if a man prefers to sit in his basement playing video games all day, so be it. Why is this a problem? With automation and AI coming to kill most jobs off, we don't need as many people on this planet as we once did. If anything, we need quality people with good looks, high IQs, who can compete in the modern society.
I disagree. High IQ, makes good looks irrelevant. Look at Einstein, Hawking, Franklin, and a myriad of other historical figures that advanced our society far more than anyone who looks like Brad Pitt or Scarlett Johansson. Looks will benefit people with low and average IQ’s or slightly better, but doesn’t make much of a difference in those with exceptional IQs.

What racism did to the black male, for centuries, was take away his ability to provide and protect under a system of white supremacy. Furthermore, not only is such a man less attractive to a women for marriage......a man is less likely to want to marry if he cannot play the traditional role.
But even when racism was rampant in this country a black man with little earning ability was better than no man at all. Black women were at the bottom of the totem pole. Better to have a husband than not. Same was true for white women to a lesser degree but women needed husbands.

Things began to get better after the civil rights movement and today everyone white, black, man, woman have equal financial opportunities yet marriage rates are decreasing, granted according to studies at a higher rate in the black community. Marriage rates in the black community have remained pretty consistent. Should they not have increased with the increasing ability for black men to provide and protect and be in the traditional role of husband?

Why is it that 90% of the time, women end up marrying men who make more money than them?

I can't imagine someone who is posting to a message board 24/7 being much more attractive.

Well according to other posts, male suicides are at an all time high.


So I doubt it is all about this one issue.
