The Colorado and Atlanta Mass Shootings: Boys Who Hurt Us Are Boys Who Hurt
For Immediate release:
March 25, 2021
By Warren Farrell, Ph.D
The two mass shootings have left virtually every American feeling some degree of insecurity. We all want to prevent mass shootings, but we differ as to how.
In Dr. Warren Farrell’s research for The Boy Crisis, he uncovered 63 red flags of depression and suicide that warn us that a boy or man may be hurting. A mass shooting is both a multiple homicide and a suicide (either literally or practically)—that is, a boy or man hurting enough to also end his own life.
The Boy Crisis identifies four things that mass shooters have in common:
1. They are male (almost 100%)
2. They are boys who are hurt (e.g., the 63 red flags)
3. They are dad-deprived (about 80-90%)
4. They have guns (by definition)
Great TV Show - American Thought Leaders - March 13, 2021 - 55 minutes - Dr Warren Farrell being interviewed at length on both sides of gender equality issues - The White House Gender Policy Council including only females and excluding males and especially black males. He's a card carrying member of NOW and past director of NOW NY - Interesting!
Dr. Farrell makes a compelling case for including all genders and races in The White House Gender Policy Council and he explains what's in it for women as well as men. President Biden may truly think that he understands gender issues but does he really? Do you?
Twitter: In American Thought Leaders I explore concrete solutions to the boy crisis, such as a "Father Warrior" Program, and critique the WH Gender Policy Council's sexism and racism.
FaceBook: This American Thought Leaders interview by Jan Jekielek of The Epoch Times elicits more than my evidence of the boy crisis, but also my critique of the sexism of the White House Gender Policy Council for both completely ignoring it, and ignoring concrete policies that would avert it, such as a "Father Warrior" Program. Jan also facilitates some of my best critiques of male privilege; of how Cancel Culture undermines universities; what's missing in feminist critiques of patriarchy; the contributions of dad-style parenting in preventing the boy crisis, and "The Father's Catch-22".

White House Gender Policy Council Excludes Males - The Boy Crisis
For Immediate release:
March 8, 2021
The Coalition for a White House Council on Boys and Men calls upon President Biden to immediately expand the mandate of the newly created White House Gender Policy Council from its exclusive focus on women and girls to include equal attention to issues facing men and boys.
Announced on January 19, 2021, the Council’s aim is "to guide and coordinate government policy that impacts women and girls, across a wide range of issues such as economic security, health care, racial justice, gender-based violence, and foreign policy, working in cooperation with the other White House policy councils." It has been enacted by executive order March 8th 2021 https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=2862028817405389&ref=notif¬if_id=1615221184218651¬if_t=live_video
We call upon the White House to immediately expand this council in a truly gender-inclusive way to reflect the needs of men and boys. For example, there are currently seven federal offices of women's health in the United States. There are zero federal offices for men’s health. Half of the population is left out of the Gender Policy Council! All of our sons, excluded. All dads, excluded. All gay men, excluded. Even transgender men, excluded. The singular exclusion of men’s issues from the GPC is astonishing in what could otherwise be an historic recognition of the equality of all Americans as a right to not be divided by gender.
An inclusive and balanced Council would go a very long way toward levelling the playing field for men’s dramatic rates of suicide and other health issues, the bewildering lack of male role models leading to gangs and enormous incarceration rates, school dropout rates and other educational issues, and the damaging rates of family violence affecting boys and men. This includes recognizing the real needs of boys and men of color who face challenges and issues such as high rates of incarceration and poverty, who would now be further systemically oppressed under the current structure of this Council. 81 percent of Americans between the ages of 10 and 24 who die by suicide in this country are male. 70 percent of people who die by opioid overdose are male. Boys are the primary victims of community and gang violence and youth homicide and are more likely to be victims of fatal child abuse.
The source of many solutions does not lie in yet another gender exclusive council being added to the existing plethora of councils addressing girls and women’s issues, when not a single council has yet focused on boys and men’s issues.
This White House must challenge the social and institutional bias against on our boys and men as it continues to challenge the social institutional bias against girls and women.
We do ourselves a huge disservice when we turn the complex realities facing males and females into some kind of contest. Humanity requires us to care about both by word and deed. We are not saying that males should take the place of females on the GPC but are requesting that they not be excluded. Both women and men lose when only one gender wins.

Message To President Biden About The Boy Crisis And Including All Genders in The White House Gender Policy Council
Newsweek, USA, Opinion - Warren Farrell, Best Seller Author, Feb 15, 2021
Every new president vows to heal the very divide his party and opponents have spent the last year and billions of dollars magnifying. Invariably, the plea translates into "unify by agreeing with me."
One of President Joe Biden's first policies appeared to bridge the gender divide by creating a White House Gender Policy Council. As someone who served on the Board of the National Organization for Women in New York City, I have seen enormous progress in women's issues, and a need for more.
Simultaneously, for a half century, millions of parents of boys and I have witnessed an ever-growing boy crisis. We see it hurting not only boys, but the fathers they may become, and our daughters who seek future young men worthy of their love.
By creating a council for "gender policy" rather than a council for "women," Biden seemed to be heeding the warning embodied in Betty Friedan's The Second Stage: The liberation of women will plateau if attention to men's issues does not follow.
The Gender Policy Council's mission is to help only women and girls. Boys are left out. Fathers are left out. Men are left out. Even transgender people and gays are left out—if they are male.
Erika Sanzi Interviews Shawn Hardnett, Founder of the Statesmen College Preparatory Academy for Boys, About the Boy Crisis
This is an amazing interview of Shawn Hardnett, a lifelong educator who refuses to ignore the problems facing boys. Not only will he not stay quiet, but he took the drastic action of fighting to open an all-boys’ charter school to serve middle school aged males in the two poorest wards of Washington DC. And he succeeded. He is now the founder and CEO of Statesmen College Preparatory Academy.
America wins when both girls and boys get a good education geared to their needs.
