Video Games, Porn, Sapping Our Precious Bodily Fluids

Posted by | May 25, 2012

A new book, The Demise of Guys: Why Boys Are Struggling and What We Can Do About It, suggests that video games and online porn are creating a generation of guys who are too afraid to go out into the real world to do great things. Or, too busy with their porn to bother. It’s another in the long line of attacks against video games as an addictive doom, and just as realistic. For the record, no, video games aren’t neutering our generation. A lack of economic stability created by lower wages and uncertain employment opportunities leading to a nomadic lifestyle that can’t afford to make long-term investments in capital purchases like a house or social commitments like marriage is far more to blame for the decline of traditional American social expectations and values, you talentless, scapegoat-chasing, crusading hacks. CNN has the story.

    If this book were published 40 years ago, it’d be talking about how “psychedelic” music was enslaving the young, and the demon weed marijuana was taking away their will to join the army or work at the factory like good American men should.

    The details change, the story remains the same.
