I’m the mother of a young son. He will grow up to be a man someday. He will grow up to be on the losing side of these statistics. He will grow up with an increased chance of committing suicide, losing his life at work, being murdered, becoming homeless, losing his kids in Family Court, being financially destroyed by divorce, becoming a victim of domestic violence, and having nowhere to turn, having his mental health mocked and invalidated. He will grow up to face the struggle of men in a world that does not see the need to even recognize these struggles exist. As a mother, that scares the living hell out of me.
