One of my favorite songs at the moment is by Sia, Fair Game
But, in my view, if we to want to play a fair game or fairer game, we are going to have to make some, explicitly agreed to, rules of engagement.
At present it is not a “fair game”, with an arms race of both sexes striving for the upper hand and in my view, us men are losing, badly.
How do I make such a call? Well, the suicide rate between males and females is some four times more in “favor” of males. Statistically we are obviously the weaker sex and some things in this “game” have got to change.
If the figures were reversed and women were killing themselves four times more than men, I believe that there would be an uproar, with all sorts of campaigns and flags being flown, by women’s networks, to rectify this imbalance. But I hear nothing, not a peep, with no one seeming to know or care that men are losing the game.
So, what is the solution? I don’t really know only that we are going to need some more women to do some batting for us as well as men needing to wake up from our slunber and start to prepare and train for a fairer game.
