GirlieMan Nation: Nearly 1/2 Millennial Guys Live @ Home w Mommy; Most Millennial Chicks On Their Own
It used to be that young adult women lived at home with their parents until marriage . . . and that young adult men quickly flew the coop to establish themselves, court women, get married, and start their own families. No longer the case. As if we needed more evidence that America is fast becoming (or already is) GirlieMan Nation, Pew Research reports that nearly half of all Millennial males–aged 18-31–live at home with their parents, while just under a third of Millennial females do. It’s just another piece of information which goes along with other stats showing the decline of the American man and the chickification of America.
The rising numbers of slacker Millennial males living at home off of their parents joins these facts: that American males are in the minority on college campuses and in grad schools; that recent male college and grad school graduates earn less in starting salary than their female counterparts; that women are on the rise in almost every profession, while men are on the decline; that the number of stay at home dads and married men who earn less than their wives is rapidly increasing; and that men–who’ve been hardest hit by the economic downturn–are not enjoying the barely felt recovery to the degree that women are.
The other numbers in the study show that more and more young adults–more than a third–are living at home with their parents in the awful Obamaconomy, as well.
In 2012, 36% of the nation’s young adults ages 18 to 31—the so-called Millennial generation—were living in their parents’ home, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. This is the highest share in at least four decades and represents a slow but steady increase over the 32% of their same-aged counterparts who were living at home prior to the Great Recession in 2007 and the 34% doing so when it officially ended in 2009.
A record total of 21.6 million Millennials lived in their parents’ home in 2012, up from 18.5 million of their same aged counterparts in 2007. Of these, at least a third and perhaps as many as half are college students. (In the census data used for this analysis, college students who live in dormitories during the academic year are counted as living with their parents). Younger Millennials (ages 18 to 24) are much more likely than older ones (ages 25 to 31) to be living with their parents—56% versus 16%. Since the onset of the 2007-2009 recession, both age groups have experienced a rise in this living arrangement.
The men of the Millennial generation are more likely than the women to be living with their parents—40% versus 32%—continuing a long-term gender gap in the share of young adults who do so. The steady rise in the share of young adults who live in their parents’ home appears to be driven by a combination of economic, educational and cultural factors. Among them:
* Declining employment. In 2012, 63% of 18- to 31-year-olds had jobs, down from the 70% of their same-aged counterparts who had jobs in 2007. In 2012, unemployed Millennials were much more likely than employed Millennials to be living with their parents (45% versus 29%).
* Rising college enrollment. In March 2012, 39% of 18- to 24-year-olds were enrolled in college, up from 35% in March 2007. Among 18 to 24 year olds, those enrolled in college were much more likely than those not in college to be living at home – 66% versus 50%.
* Declining marriage. In 2012 just 25% of Millennials were married, down from the 30% of 18- to 31-year-olds who were married in 2007. Today’s unmarried Millennials are much more likely than married Millennials to be living with their parents (47% versus 3%).
None of these trends–including rising college enrollment (which will actually fall, this next school year, as college enrollments are now declining)–are good for America. Rising college enrollment only makes the degree more and more worthless and a waste of time and money. It used to be a unique credential. Now, it’s like bus fare.
In any event, the numbers of young men living at home is depressing and a trend that will continue because America is doing nothing to strengthen the masculinity of the American male and everything to weaken it; because America is doing everything to continue to promote feminist disasters, such as single motherhood, on our country and destroy all traditional social institutions and backbone that once made this country great and now makes us just like Scandinavia, the rest of Europe, with a bad taste of the Middle East thrown in.
Remember, these women on their own, while the slacker “men” are at Mom’s, are the ones who voted 2-1 to re-elect Barack Obama. Expect that to be the Hillary dividend at the next go round. These women do not vote Republican and the Republican Party will lose forever. As for the slackers at home with mom, I’m not sure they even vote at all.
Good luck with that, America. Say Good-bye.
