The fact that the majority of suicide victims are men is shocking.
We're often told that over 80% of suicide victims are men, but have we ever thought how crazy that is? The crazy part is that men are saturated with testosterone (over 10x as much as women), a well know anti-depressent and stress busting hormone, but despite the anti-depressing properties of testosterone, men make up 80% of suicide victims?
Do you realize HOW MUCH pressure and misery must be needed to overwhelm the natural anti-depressive properties of testosterone? This is enough evidence for me that men don't have an easy life since their struggles are often dismissed and laughed at, most often by women themselves.
From a biological point of view, given equal struggles, one would expect women to be the majority of suicide victims, since they have a much lower concentration of the anti-depressive testosterone, but what do we see in real life? The complete opposite. This is alone proof that, at least in the West, it is women who have it easier than men.
This is what happens when you're told to "man up" and dismiss your depression.
Male privellege it is, right?
