The Knight & Drummer: From Boys to Men


The Knight & Drummer: From Boys to Men. This one is about the situation down under in Australia, but it has also been a significant issue in the United States since the 1980s with the continued feminization of males. Boys, since the 1980s, have been treated as “defective girls” and every attempt has been made, especially in the government schools, to excise from boys their natural boy behaviors and characteristics. We label boys with a mental disorder (ADHD) and pump them full of drugs to make them docile and compliant and, yes, more like girls.
