Social justice journalism: Media twist male suicide rates into a women’s issue

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

A recent Global News article highlights the alarming statistic that three quarters of those who commit suicide in Canada are men, which is three times higher than the rate for women. 

The article goes on to list the reasons for this epidemic but in a strange twist, it focuses on women and gender equality and even finds a way to suggest that gender equality in workplaces may be part of the solution to ending the increasing male suicide rate.

We can cheer stats showing women increasingly becoming bread winners and talk about breaking glass ceilings, but we can’t deny that a lot of those achievements are simply handed to females at the expense of men.

Women benefit from specialized government programs, scholarships and grants ,and even President Obama parroted the fake gender gap myth.

Imagine the outrage if these suicide stats were reversed?

Rather than believing that the solution to high male suicide rates lies in gender equality in the workplace, perhaps a better solution is recognizing men’s value.

The idea that 97% of the people who die in war are men is only plausible if we exclude civilians. If we add in civilians though, it becomes preposterous. The Soviet Union suffered somewhere between 26.5 and 28 million deaths among its own people in WW II; of these, roughly 16 million were CIVILIAN deaths. Does anyone really think the civilian population was 97% male? Or that, by some miracle, only men starved to death in Leningrad or got executed by the SS or otherwise met their ends while women survived? Or does this number only refer to countries where there was no direct combat, like Canada or the United States?

Either way, it’s a pretty dodgy number and ought to be taken with a huge grain of salt. Most wars do involved civilians and civilians are actually disproportionately female when most of the men are away at the front fighting the war.

When Women become bread winners, they stop breeding, this gives Trudeau a green light to import more Muslims. On the up side, it decreases the amount of Canadians who will die by Genocide.

We are Screwed if we do and Screwed if we don’t.

The real reason is Proglodyte women drive a sane man to suicide.
