I’m So Sick Of The Gender Divide


“Why do young men and women seem so divided? Gen Z are going on far fewer dates than previous generations. We are having less sex. A lot of us feel lonely. Those who do date seem to get stuck in vague situationships. Both sexes seem utterly disillusioned with the modern dating market, with men losing trust in women and young women expressing utter disdain for men.

There are many reasons for this, I think. Dating apps teach us to treat each other like disposable commodities. Hookup culture hinders romance and commitment. Social media rewards self-absorption. Porn warps our expectations. And behind all these are powerful profit motives, with billion-dollar industries depending on us being lonely and detached consumers.”
