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".

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.

Proposal for a White House Council on Boys and Men

The Coalition to Create A White House Council on Boys And Men has been advocating since 2009. The proposal for a White House Council on Boys and Men was originally inspired by a discussion initiated by the White House Boards and Commissions Director Joanna Martin to Dr. Warren Farrell, inquiring of his interest in advising the White House Council on Women and Girls, given his background with the National Organization for Women.

Shortly after, Dr. Farrell created a multi-partisan Commission of thirty-four prominent authors, educators, researchers and practitioners to accomplish three goals: investigate the status of boys and their journey into manhood; identify both surface and underlying problems confronting boys and men; create a blueprint toward solutions.

It's a crisis of education. Worldwide, boys are 50 percent less likely than girls to meet basic proficiency in reading, math, and science.

It's a crisis of mental health. ADHD is on the rise. And as boys become young men, their suicide rates go from equal to girls to six times that of young women.

It's a crisis of fathering. Boys are growing up with less-involved fathers and are more likely to drop out of school, drink, do drugs, become delinquent, and end up in prison.

It's a crisis of purpose. Boys' old sense of purpose-being a warrior, a leader, or a sole breadwinner-are fading. Many bright boys are experiencing a "purpose void," feeling alienated, withdrawn, and addicted to immediate gratification.

So, what is The Boy Crisis? A comprehensive blueprint for what parents, teachers, and policymakers can do to help our sons become happier, healthier men, and fathers and leaders worthy of our respect.
