College Male Scarcity Has Created a New Phenomenon Called ‘Golden Penis Syndrome’

[QUOTE]With men making up only 40.5% of students, they’re in short supply and high demand. “Golden penis syndrome” leads smug males to engage in dating practices like cheating and ghosting because they’re confident that another girl will always be waiting.

R25 There was a big push in the US 20 years ago to stop under-recognizing girls in classrooms and especially to encourage them into STEM fields, where they were underrepresented. At the same time, there was a big push to overemphasize STEM and de-emphasize arts and humanities. Boys began to be under-attended to by many teachers because teachers were told to stop overlooking girls. I think there was ironically a sexist assumption embedded in these efforts that boys will simply carry on and naturally excel in all areas even when neglected. It didn't work out that way. As it turns out, any student who is overlooked will become disengaged and ultimately will feel college "is not right for me."

Yes, absolutely, but that's not readily apparent in the 18 - 22 y.o. population. Obviously the non-college-educated aren't going to be accruing student loan debt, but their bright lucrative future as an entrepreneur isn't easy to discern. If women are looking for a guy with status, then a college degree in a real subject (like engineering, not sociology) is a safer bet. Is it superficial? Sure, but then so is dating someone based on their looks. There's nothing new to see here.

by Anonymousreply 57November 5, 2021 11:16 PM

Psychology Today did an article about a study that showed the average woman prefers her man to be 8 inches taller than her. The average female height in the US is 5’4. Thats 6 feet tall.

Only 14% of men in the US are over 6 feet tall, this can be a make or break with some women.

14%. Take out the gay men, the married men, the engaged men, the men in serious relationships, the men in prison, the men on hard drugs, and the ugly men.

Then from the good looking single men over 6 feet and take out the broke men, the unemployed men, the men with shitty cars, the men with shitty jobs, the men still living at home.

Then from that, take out the men that make less than $50,000 a year (and I’m being generous, I could double it for a woman’s dream standards)

To think of the percentage of men who the woman’s ideal is minuscule.

The picky women set themselves up for failure.

Both men and women take what they can get, the difference is that men mainly want sex and women want relationships, so the ideal becomes even more unattainable for women.

R62. You are a couple decades behind the times. I graduated med school in 2000, the med students/residents I knew married other MDs. MDs engage in assortative mating and select mates at their education/financial level.

The days of doctors marrying nurses ended over 30 years ago. What doctor would want to marry a plump Filipina nurse with some lazy work shy sons to support? Especially since MD's salaries have halved over the past 30 years.

In China, there's a woman shortage in some areas partly because female fetuses are aborted or abandoned due to the cultural preference for sons, and because in rural areas the girls all haul ass for the cities.

Sons are expected to stay with the family and take care of their parents, or at least eldest sons are, so in rural areas the sons will stay with the family farm or family business, and their sisters will go to the city where they can work in factories or stores and make a lot more money than their brothers, and live independent lives. The fact that women don't want to stick around for the joys of rural poverty and abusive in-laws means that entire regions are lacking in marriagable women, and there are generations of men who know that life is never going to offer them anything more than living with their parents and running the family farm. They're regarded as a social time bomb.

Okay, can someone please explain the sex appeal of Adam Driver? Is he one of those "ugly-sexy" guys? We've certainly discussed that topic on DL from the gay man's perspective, but I just find him to be so completely unappealing and unattractive. Great actor, but... just no.

My guess as to what's going on with the 18-22-ers is that a hell of a lot of white, straight, middle-class men are feeling lost and betrayed by society, because not only have wages fallen and working conditions worsened, they've realized that the best jobs and careers are no longer being held in reserve for them. Some are fine with this, some don't know what to do with a world that doesn't treat them as superior or special, and are checking out of life instead of continuing their education or training for a field where they can earn a living wage.

There have always been slackers, but the awful job market, the student debt crisis, and the fashion for helicopter parent means that there are more of them than ever.

R134 Republicans will never pull their heads out of their asses enough to realize that they too are being fucked over by capitalism, but college boards do have policies that favor accepting women over men, even when women outnumber men on capuses. This all comes down to the push for women in STEM. Women are of course naturally overrepresented in bullshit "female" majors like Communications, Psychology and Sociology, but colleges keep trying to make the traditionally "male" majors like Economics, Engineering tracks, and Physics 50-50 male/female. Actually the group that has benefited the most from most 'diversity initiatives' is white women. Black men are doing worse than ever and Asian men need perfect SAT scores to get into an Ivy League schools.

Policies intended to get more women into STEM programs don't create a 60/40 enrollment differential between men and women, to create a national difference that large you either have to actively ban people from programs or colleges by gender, which isn't being done on a mass scale, or you have some kind of massive demographic change going on where masses of people are deciding against higher education and/or student debt. I think it's the latter, the prospect of a lifetime of student loan debt is frightening a lot of people away from college, in a time of low wages and stagnant advancement a bachelor's degree no longer pays for itself.

Frankly, I'd like to know the sex differential by racial groups and income levels. I have theories about why young people are doing the things they do.

One of the biggest problems in the immediate future is going to be these single, unattached, educated women with no romantic prospects because many straight guys have checked out due to porn and games and these women wasted their child bearing years being too picky. It's why there are so many 30-40 something women on Twitter screeching into the void about everything and nothing in particular. They latch onto a particularly noxious strain of feminism that lets them blame their mistakes on the patriarchy or whatever without ever having to mentally deal with the stress of the knowledge that their own choices have made them unhappy.

A lot of women in colleges gravitate towards the soft social sciences and go on to get fairly low paid work in non profits, HR/admin work, etc. Women are not dominating the most lucrative fields.

Men without college degrees can make good money in more labor-intensive fields, construction, plumbing, etc. At least where I live, in upstate NY.

Women without a college degree get stuck in low wage retail/waitressing/childcare. Women have a lot more to lose by not going to college.

[quote]Less remarked on is the sex breakdown of the growing proportion of administrators. A recent diversity and inclusion report by the University of California indicates that women make up more than 70 per cent of non academic staff across (among others) nursing, therapeutic services, health, health technicians, communications services roles, and a majority or near majority across all non manual staff roles. In other words, if men are still over represented in top academic roles, the non academic supporting ecosystem is overwhelmingly female.

...

[quote]In practice, then, as pursued within universities, one byproduct of student activism is something akin to a “jobs for the girls” scheme, in which a heavily female student body drives demand for more roles across feminised non-academic administrative roles, which in turn helps create an environment geared toward women, and so on. Or, as 2019’s “Afghanistan Papers” famously described that military campaign, a “self licking ice cream cone”.

[quote]Young alumnae graduating from this ecosystem might be expected to carry its insights out into professional life. And indeed, according to America’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, HR (a career whose employees are 71 per cent female, according to one industry report) is one of the fastest growing occupations in the country.

[quote]Within that field, the fastest growing sub discipline is diversity and inclusion. A list of “2019’s Most Influential Diversity Professionals” published by Hive Learning, offers us 13 men and 63 women. And a principal task of diversity professionals is increasing the job opportunities available for women, and especially of women engaged in diversity work.

...

[quote]Another second order effect of this shift may be intensifying female competition in the field of love as well as work. Twentieth century social scientists assumed that women’s common Jane Austen-style desire to “marry up” was a side effect of exclusion from the workforce, and that women would be content to marry less high flying spouses once they were able to earn their own money.

[quote]Recent data, though, suggests that this is not the case: one cross cultural study of 37 societies showed that women in all of them placed a higher value on the financial prospects of a prospective mate than men did. Evolutionary psychologists argue that these preferences are not contingent effects of patriarchal oppression, but adaptive strategies evolved over millennia.

I think plenty of them (though not all) realize this. But, they honestly don't believe anything will be done to alleviate being fucked over. So, it's every man and group for themselves.

Both are true.

Women discriminate against lower-earning men when dating, and while men may not express much concern with a woman's earning power during the dating phase, problems with income or social class differentials do develop when relationships become serious. At least, according to every woman I've ever met who got serious about a lower-earning man.

Mid level admin supervisory work itself is ultra competitive these days as well, as most organizations have reduced middle management. The executives where I work fight over who will get an admin because the company will only allow so many. Women dominate these type jobs and men generally don't have patience to deal with petty office politics that come with this type of work. It doesn't make sense to get a degree (yeah you do need a degree to get admin work these days) if you don't want to deal with that bullshit.

R172, asnwers: "Sexual satisfaction is usually outranked by financial security, status, good material to breed with, no addictions, doesn't hit them.......and after one or two children heterosexuals' stop having sex anyway."

I think that can be true. It's not that it doesn't matter; obviously anyone who likes sex would want a good sex partner, but it can be overridden by other concerns - for a lot of women; certainly not all. The other thing -- people get good sex elsewhere, even if only intermittently, including women.

Given that so many relationships fail and there's can be so much anger and pain - people naturally ask if the "model" of marriage and committed relationships makes sense. I've realized that "professed monogamy + cheating" (which may or may not end the relationship) might just make perfect sense despite all the problems it causes. What would cause less problems? Open relationships? Maybe for a small subset of couples. But most people have too big of an ego and, naturally, people want to feel like they are special and loved -- that they are "the one." Ick? Maybe. But, again, the older I get, the more it makes sense.
