The next time you hear a bunch of women; be they feminists, traditional conservative housewives, “anti-feminist” attention whores, or any other of the assorted species of domesticated fowl, clucking about how men should not have male-only spaces, because it is “misogynistic”, or “exactly what the feminists do to men. Are ya saying you need a safe space?!”, direct them to this study titled;

Community-based Men’s Sheds: promoting male health, wellbeing and social inclusion in an international context

The abstract states the following:

Males experience greater mortality and morbidity than females in most Western countries. The Australian and Irish National Male Health Policies aim to develop a framework to address this gendered health disparity. Men’s Sheds have a distinct community development philosophy and are thus identified in both policies as an ideal location to address social isolation and positively impact the health and wellbeing of males who attend. The aim of this international cross-sectional survey was to gather information about Men’s Sheds, the people who attend Men’s Sheds, the activities at Men’s Sheds, and the social and health dimensions of Men’s Sheds.

Results demonstrate that Men’s Sheds are contributing a dual health and social role for a range of male subgroups. In particular, Men’s Sheds have an outward social focus, sup- porting the social and mental health needs of men; health promotion and health literacy are key features of Men’s Sheds. Men’s Sheds have an important role to play in addressing the gendered health disparity that males face. They serve as an exemplar to health promotion profes- sionals of a community development context where the aims of male health policy can be actualized as one part of a wider suite of global initiatives to reduce the gendered health disparity.

Hmm, who would have ‘thunked’ it? Being able to hang out with other men, away from the presence of women is actually good for men and their overall health?  No way! That can’t be. That sounds gay. That’s a study being pushed by faggots. The right place for these brutes is on the battlefield; gainst each other; for king and country; for social status and for tits, ass and vagina.  A bit more:

The findings from this study highlight four central points (i) that Men’s Sheds are community
focussed, (ii) Men’s Sheds target a range of marginalized male subpopulations who are at
risk of social isolation, (iii) Men’s Sheds have health benefits and in some areas are providing preventative health service and (iv) the promotion of men’s health and wellbeing is a core activity
of many Men’s Sheds. While the core activity and central appeal of men’s sheds is participation
in meaningful masculine activities, the capacity of Men’s Sheds to augment men’s health and
social concerns, particularly for males affected by the social determinants of health, appears to
be promising and aligns with their community development philosophy. Most importantly, the
existence of NMHPs appears to be associated with more targeted health promotion activities at
Men’s Sheds, thus providing process evidence of male health policy translation into practice.

This is something the manosphere does not talk about as often as we should — how men need and if deprived of it, crave male friendship. Male bonding is extremely important, and quite frankly, whenever women are involved in it, it just ruins the bonding process, men need time together to be able to do what men do when cunts aren’t around, such as, shoot the shit, have serious, meaningful conversations about politics, career choices, social issues, video games and occasionally their sexual excursions. Lies and exaggerations and all.

Away.

From.

Women.

In fact, they need this more than ever. Take this article titled 2.5 million men ‘have no close friends’, which states the following:

It is among the most basic of human needs but stark new research suggests that more than two and a half million British men have no friends they would turn to for help or advice in a crisis.

A study of relationships in the UK found that men’s chances of friendlessness almost treble between their early 20s and late middle age.

And married men are also significantly less likely than their single counterparts to say they have friends to turn to outside of the home.

The new findings will add weight to warnings of a “crisis of masculinity” in Britain amid evidence of an alarming rise in suicide among men, especially those in middle age.

The findings emerge from research carried out by the Movember Foundation, the group behind the annual charity fundraising event in which men grow moustaches for the month of November.

In addition to raising money to combat male cancers the group is focussing on increasing awareness of male mental health issues.

Last month research published by the charity campaign “Calm” (Campaign Against Living Miserably) showed that more four in 10 men have thought about taking their own lives at some point.

At this point I’ll just repeat this bit:

And married men are also significantly less likely than their single counterparts to say they have friends to turn to outside of the home.

Yeah, maybe this is because women have a tendency to alienate men from their lifelong friends, especially after marriage. In addition, it is indeed the case that men are less social than women, but one thing that is overlooked by cunts who love making this point is, yes, we aren’t idiotic, frivolous, childish social butterflies, who prioritize “niceness” and make friends with any and everybody. We get to know a few pals or group of pals and so be it. Most of the times we love being alone, with the option of meeting up with that friend or two to workout, get out the house and throw a few drinks back. We want to be able to be who we are without having to curtail that because some cunt is around who will get “offended”, so we must watch what we say and all that bullshit. Oh, and also, I’ll take this moment to offer up a big fuck you to pragerU.

A YouGov survey for Movember asked men to say how many friends, if any, outside the home they would discuss a serious topic such as worries about money, work or health with.
Just over half (51 per cent) said two or fewer but one in eight overall said none.
That equates to around 2.5 million men across the UK.
When the results are broken down by age it suggests men have fewer close friendships as they get older, with only seven per cent of those under 24 saying there were no friends with whom they would discuss a serious topic but 19 per cent of over-55s.
And while marriage offers lifelong support and companionship, the study shows that married men have some of the lowest levels of support outside the home.
They are more than a third more likely than their single counterparts to say they have no-one to turn to outside of the home.

While 11 per cent of single men said they had no friends to turn to in a serious situation, that rose to 15 per cent among married men.
Strikingly, married men are also more than twice as likely as men who cohabit unmarried with a partner to say the same, suggesting that marriage itself, rather than being in a long-term relationship, cuts their ties with their friends.
And the effect could be permanent, the findings suggest: even divorce does not increase their overall chances of having close friends they could turn to for help, which remains at 15 per cent.

Well, that’s just delightful. I can’t wait to be a “real man”, get married and never see my male friends again. It’s a heck of a tradeoff; not only do I get to ditch my best friends, but I get to work more and see less of my money. Yes! Peak life! Who needs friends anyway? A wife and her bills are just as good as friends, am I right?
