"The Demise of Guys": How video games and porn are ruining a generation
http://edition.cnn.com/2012/05/23/healt ... ?hpt=hp_c2
interesting, ... but I'm sure women watch porn too lol ... I can see how a child would be bored & disinterested in an average classroom if they're addicted to video games; especially one with not much digital interaction at school.
We were never bought video games ever growing up, we played outside. & didn't have use of a PC at home until 1995.
but there could be some truth to this as too much of anything isn't good ... must be used in moderation.
- It's easy to give, when you know what it's like to have nothing. -
- Develop a backbone, not a wishbone. -
Yeah, I was like that. No one liked me, and school was really boring! So I looked forward to video games. I played outside too, but video games were something to look forward to when I came home
I used to watch pornography too, back when I was a kid it gave me the satisfaction of intimacy...in the US, great, nice guys are never looked upon with love. I stopped because it made me blind. :p
I think women find porn amusing and entertaining. However, they don't become addicted to it like men do, to the point of completely losing interest in the opposite sex. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I think women are more likely to be become addicted to internet chat rooms like facebook or sexting on a phone because they find the communication more emotionally "stimulating".
I think porn can be ok and I think it can actually help some guys out, but it does have it downside. Quite a few men do become addicted to it to the point it goes from a fantasy, to quite the hobby or "fix" they have to receive. Porn for me is ok, but not my cup of tea...it's too embarrassing, gross, and fake mostly. (Hentai fan!) Sometimes I think porn shifts perception wise what a male believes a female should look like naturally. From an earthy healthy image to a over-sexualized sex doll. They expect it to be whatever they see on screen and it's often not exactly that way.
As for videogames I think people who are heavily into stimulation via violence, graphics, and fantasy can easily be sucked into the world of gaming. Especially if they have very little interaction with the outside world or other people in general. If there's nothing to counteract the stimulation of gaming then yeah you get a lot of dependents. Most of my friends and myself are gamers and we do enjoy playing a variety of things, but while we may discuss them and etc...they don't run our lives or occupy it to the point where there's nothing else. Their just for fun and entertainment above all. We know gaming can be addictive for a lot of males, but something needs to counteract that affect.
Pricking up her golden head:
We must not look at goblin men,
We must not buy their fruits:
Who knows upon what soil they fed
Their hungry thirsty roots?"
Its a little too late for moderation if your already addicted like millions of guys. Computer games and porn keep men in a state of arrested development, they never really grow up and its basically a time waster.
This guy I used to work with would fall asleep at his computer after playing World Of Warcraft for 18 hours straight. He had lost all interest in women and had emotional maturity of 16 year old despite being 35 yrs old.
My comment on the article was as follows.

Remember, if you grow up and work your arse off and marry and raise children like I DID then you will most likely be screwed over in divorce.
I now appear much more as "arrested development" than "grown up" and it is MUCH more fun to be that way. The whole "grow up" statement is just more man-hatred and shaming language.

I like playing videogames myself, and I couldn't imagine myself playing for 4 1/2 hours straight (1/4 of the time), let alone 18.
Wielding the blade of evil's bane, he sealed the dark one away and gave the land light. This man, who traveled through time to save the land, was known as the Hero of Men. The man's tale was passed down through generations until it became legend...
I'm not trying to slam men in any way. I'm divorced too, I know what your going through.
Theres a lot of things that are addicting(women with big breasts, gaming, drinking etc..) and can take over your life, as long as your aware of it you can prevent it before something bad happens.
