over 80% of homelessness is male over 80% of suicides are men over 80% of divorces men lose their home their children yet still have to pay half the bills at least Men die over 5 years younger than women on average Men die of cancer and contract cancer 20% more than women Thats before we even mention that boys are light behind girls in education All we hear is where women are allegedly behind men never the other way around. This is why I am opposed to feminism but in favour of equal opportunity for all. Feminism is simly biased and will never address issues where men are behind Even the issue of pay in the emergency services, feminists demand equal pay for all. Then why are 99% of all deaths in the police, fire service and army all male? Id want more pay if Im 99 times more likely to be killed Yet in all these areas there is vastly more money and investment and media coverage of female issues spent by the NHS and the government and charities etc The network of support for divorced women or women leaving relationships or in need of shelter is simply enormous , 1000s of charities and government shelter programmes...these even go so far as free housing free transport, free clothes etc Even mainstream charities such as children in need and colin relief carry out many tv and radio adverts that are only raising money for women and girls This is systematic sexism on a monolithic scale against men and boys I am 100% certain this thread will be shouted down , I dont care. These are massively serious issues that need to be addressed by spineless overly PC overly feminist politicians trying to look good with virtue signalling....in the kingdom of the blind the man with one eye is king. Homelessness is a gendered issue, and it mostly impacts men Why aren't homeless charities doing more to address the fact that the majority of homeless people are men, and that they need more support and protection than women 'Homeless men are more likely than women to say they don’t need support' Photo: Ian Jones By Glen Poole 1:51PM BST 06 Aug 2015 This week, the charity Homeless Link published the results of a detailed audit on the health and wellbeing of homeless men and women in the UK. In total, 27 different local authorities carried out surveys involving 3,355 homeless people, 71 per cent of whom were men. Not surprisingly, the results revealed that the vast majority of homeless people experiencing health problems in the UK are male. So why did the charity responsible only choose to publicise the problems faced by homeless women? It was a Press Association article published in The Guardian with the headline, “More homeless women use heroin and cocaine than men”, that alerted me to this fact. The introduction to the article also claimed that a “greater number of [homeless] women lived with mental health difficulties” and a few paragraphs later the article stated that “more women use heroin-substitute methadone than men”. As an advocate for men and boys, my bullshit detectors are set to spot everyday sexism against men in a nanosecond (or is that a manosecond?). There is absolutely no way, I thought, that that there are more homeless women than homeless men living with and mental health difficulties and using heroin, cocaine and methadone. So I decided to take it from the horse’s mouth and spent a couple of hours hanging out with the excellent data at the Homeless Link website, because there’s little I love more than slipping inside a fresh set of spreadsheets and comparing sexes. This is what I discovered: 327 of the homeless people surveyed used crack/cocaine in the past month, 76 per cent of them were male; 355 of the homeless people surveyed used heroine in the past month, 77 per cent of them were male; 358 of the homeless people surveyed used methadone in the past month, 75 per cent of them were male; 2,659 of the homeless people surveyed had mental health problems, 71 per cent of them were male.
