Curious to finally see what all the fuss is about with AI and it’s most currently most newsworthy representation, I decided to ask ChatGPT a simple question. Here’s what it produced in just a few seconds.
Q: Explain why should I join a men’s group?
Joining a men’s group can provide a range of benefits for personal growth, support, and community. Here are some reasons why you might consider joining a men’s group:
Boys and men are increasingly at a disadvantage in education and in the job market.
As author Richard Reeves is at pains to point out in this brief video, this is not an issue of men vs. women in any sort of misogynistic way, but the very real fallout from the necessary rebalancing of gender inequality that has played out over the last few decades.
Fatherhood and masculinity are inseparable. Probably the main reason why more and more men are questioning their father-son relationships is that the boundaries, the rules, the expectations around masculinity have shifted or become blurred.
So this podcast series from The Guardian is sure to be of interest to anyone who’s interested in what I’m hoping to achieve here at Father Lessons (although, to be honest, I’m still in the process of figuring out exactly what that is!).
Actidad is one of what I am beginning to realise is a large number of websites and podcasts aimed at the crisis of boys growing up without fathers or without good solid male role models.
The latest edition of the Actidad podcast is a very interesting interview with Dr. Warren Farrell about what he calls “the Boy Crisis” and the findings of his decades of research into “Dad-Deprived boys.”
