Peacemonger’s right: male suicide rates are a problem and they deserve a thorough look to see what all of us can do to improve or adjust quality of life to reduce it. Whatever benefits men get in our culture for being men, they also have their own, often unique, weights to bear, and a culture of enforced emotional solitude, plus that strange cultural barrier to men seeking medical help, are among them. The solution is a combination of personal responsibility by any individual man and the community he lives in. We all have a responsibility to improve our awareness of these issues.
This anger? I don’t know exactly where it comes from for tockthewatchdog personally, but it needs a more constructive outlet than this. And good lord, they need to work out what’s actually at the root of it and work out how best to make peace with it. We’ll all move on better and quicker once we develop a healthy attitude to our own anger. Then we can actually solve the problems with clear heads. Easier said than done, but that’s the shape of it.
