Don't have time to write big pieces today, but I recently read two different blog posts on a similar topic that converged for me.
Here's the issue: With feminism, men have become less and less necessary to women. We can earn our own way, and we can be single parents. At the same time, we've hoisted huge costs onto men. When we divorce, they usually pay a ton of child support, and often don't get much access to the kids. We decide whether or not we even have a child or not. Men are left out of the picture.
Yet men are also having an easier time getting what they want--namely commitment-free sex--because feminism has said that women should express their sexuality, too. So men can now get all the sex they want without committing. And if they commit, they'll likely lose a ton of income and lose access to their kids anyway. So why get married?
I'm not saying this attitude is correct, of course; I'm just saying it's prevalent in our culture. Here are two articles, written from a secular viewpoint (big warning) that deal with this:
I'm not going to comment on much of this, except to say that feminism has done a world of damage to marriage, regardless of whether or not there were also some benefits. I just throw this out there as a topic for discussion.
And I think I'll leave the last word on malehood to Dr. Laura, who sums up what I think more men should be (instead of finding excuses as to why it's all women's faults that they've stopped committing):
