Figures another article picking on the last few things that men can use to escape their crappy lives, or just to entertain themselves.

The demise of men started with corrupt feminism, political correctness, media pandering, and lousy parenting bringing up a couple generations of whipped males who as a group were afraid to challenge the status quo and would rather gain the approval of the ignorant masses. (I know, I used to be one of them!)

If anything this article screams "WAH, he's not paying enough attention to ME!" Just because a very miniscule few completely detach from reality to porn and games doesn't mean the rest of us are going to end up that way. They tend to leave out that some men can turn to porn if the relationship goes sexless. And that videogames can be used to improve hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills, critical thinking, etc. Of course you'll RARELY see articles about those because the "omg wherez da statistiks?" Nazis will counter that argument to the ground.

Honestly there have been so many male bashing articles over the past couple decades it's hard for anyone to take them seriously.

Another non sense article that many will jump on the band wagon as true to wave their finger at "this generation".

Most of that article were nothing but generalizations and assumptions. They post a study don't source it and go on to make some assumptions. This article only serves to vilify guys on how they should act and provide confirmation bias for those that already believe this to be true. Another study trying to single out gender for not abiding by social standards instead of trying to help fight an addiction which should be the actual goal.
This is why gender specific articles are just ridiculous.

Who cares if a single and lonely guy looks at porn?

The video games thing is a bit childish though.


Women won't go out with "said" guy.

Then they want to p*ss and moan about him taking care of some lonely feelings inside of him too?


You're right, what's this Country coming to.......

Making the same generalized assumptions that this article makes will not solve this problem. This is not a time to fight fire with fire but look at things critically and not assigning blame elsewhere.
