Re: Why do men live less long than women?
As with much of the health services - the psychiatric field is dominated by women (and capitulated men) who jealously guard the power they hold within. It's therefore very perturbing to those men attempting to forge career inroads within a rigid system who could otherwise aid productively in the treatment of vulnerable men.
Quote from MikeT
I don't doubt there are indeed some excellent 'individual' female nurses who give a damn about male patients, but they are too few and constricted within a morally dilapidated system much in need of an overhaul - which must have 'inclusivity' as it's driving theme. Just as common sense dictates that women best understand other women, so it logically follows that having more men in the psychiatric field will provide an outlet for otherwise ostracized men.
Not treating these men adequately is not only morally negligent, but also inadvertently contributes towards the social wreckage that may entail if ignored.

The wicked flee when none pursueth. Proverbs 28:1
'Rise like Lions after slumber In unvanquishable number - Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you - Ye are many - they are few.'

The internet has been a lifeboat for men's opposition to the floodings of feminism.
