very well, thanks for joining,Yeah, I think I'm going to hold off on this topic after my comment.
I'm still not fully convinced that woke culture is a large driver for male suicide. There's something else going on. Food for thought: most "wokes" are in college campuses and urban areas, but what if a large proportion of male suicides occurred in rural areas? Or, what if the largest increase in male suicides occurred in rural areas?
Some stats from the US CDC:
I cannot claim that I am familiar with rural environments. However, I would be surprised if the stereotypical rugged, individualistic, self-reliant rural man cared about the opinion of wokes. That being said, those stats are not specific to white cis men, and only distinguish between overall men and women. You would have to look at the demographics of the rural regions to figure out who is suffering the most.
It feels a bit weird typing this, so yeah I'm peacing out. Hopefully you all can have a constructive argument and reach a conclusion.
Concerning the rural study: Isolation (from wider society) might very well be driving factor here, aswell as age (young people in campuses v more old back in the village) both are key markers for chances of depression neurlogically, (as well as, in case of rural isolation, one's community not being nearby to catch in time before the act so to speak.)
At which point i would again argue that, concerning the overall numbers at least, an ideology that pushes men further into isolation by constantly berating instead of encouring them isn't very helpfull.
but no, I have no peer reviewed study for that (yet) unfortunaly.
