NCFM Advisor Gordon Finley, Ph.D., opinion in the Washington Times, GOP must court male vote

October 2, 2012

The letter below, GOP must court male vote, appears in the print edition of The Washington Times on the morning of the first presidential debate, Wednesday October 3, 2012. It is followed by an Editorial that also appears on the same morning…

Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D.

GOP must court male vote

Women have every reason in the world to re-elect President Obama. He has given them virtually everything they want. For reasons incomprehensible, the GOP has failed to recognize or meet the needs of men in today’s gender-reversed world.

Today’s boys, men and fathers are not the boys, men and fathers of “the greatest generation.” They are on the wrong side of virtually all gender gaps — and promising to equalize those gender gaps may well be the GOP’s last real chance to save the House, gain the Senate and salvage the presidency (“Obama widens lead, confidence against Romney,” Web, Sunday).

Here are four areas to consider. In education, boys and men lag far behind girls and women at all levels, from kindergarten through doctoral, and the sex gap is projected to get worse. In occupation, unemployment rates are higher for men than for women, and women earn more than men do in the younger generations. In health, women live longer and have multiple federal offices devoted to their health while men have zero. In divorce, mothers are awarded custody of children about 90 percent of the time, while fathers often are stripped of their fathering role but still are required to pay child support and alimony.

What the radical feminism of the Democratic Party has wrought is not pretty. However, the very extremism of the Democratic gap between the sexes may well hold the prospect for the last votes the GOP may find. Promises to equalize these gaps beginning in January 2013 might motivate more men to support GOP candidates and show up on Election Day.

EDITORIAL: Obama’s gender gap

The gender gap has been a fixture on the political landscape for decades, but men have never enjoyed equal rights. The story line is about how it relates to women, even though the gap cuts both ways. A recent headline such as “What’s behind Obama’s big lead among women?” could as easily be “What’s behind Romney’s big lead among men?” Instead of a story headed “Why Obama is so popular among women” it could be “Why Romney is so popular among men.” Barack is the self-described “eye candy” sharing herbal tea on your settee. Mitt is hanging out on the couch watching the game with the guys. READ THE REST at the Washington Times:

Save Our Heroes

Honorable Men

The New Warrior community is a group of men who specially pride themselves on being honorable. Tim Goldich, President NCFM Chicago Chapter and author of, Loving Men, Respecting Women: The Future of Gender Politics joined that community several years ago. He came to realize just how vulnerable honorable men are to having their honor used against them. Our fate may indeed depend upon honorable conduct. To better understand how the misuse of Man’s honor is a root cause of issues and ideas found on this website you should first read Mr. Goldich’s article, The Honorable Man. It lights the way to understanding how The Honorable Man can be manipulated into becoming The Complacent Man.
