“In 2025, politicians in much of the world began to realize they had a problem. With schools now 40% empty, the leading question in first and second world nations was “where have the children gone?”
By 2012, boyhood “excesses”, where boys would challenge each other physically, be involved in physical activities and have outlets for aggressive tendencies were no longer socially acceptable in the West. A solution was found for boys who would not remain passive by placing 20% of the boys at most schools on behavior curbing drug regimes. These included heavy doses of stimulants and anti-psychotic medications for Attention Deficit Disorder (aka not paying attention even when bored), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (being a busy or antsy person who doesn’t sit quietly for extended periods of time), and Oppositional Defiance Disorder (saying no to authority figures).
Research some years later determine that not only were the drugs eliciting the desired pacification effects, they were also physically modifying the brain structures of the children. By 2014, parents failing to place unruly boys on medication were being reported to legal authorities for child neglect, and by 2020 the Boy Rehabilitation through Medication Act had passed, requiring the state to intervene and treat any boy suspected of unruly behavior. By 2025, 50% of boys in school were medicated and playgrounds around the world quiet.
Having gotten the boys under control, men were no loss targeted. Although female college enrollment exceeded male enrollment in 1980, programs to encourage female enrollment and participation continued to be funded, usually with funds drawn from programs popular with males. By 2012 college enrollment ratios were 60% women versus 40% men, with the drive to fund women’s activities continuing to increase. Even with men significantly disadvantaged since 2010, any area of college activity that didn’t have at least as many women involved was called discriminatory. The converse, of course, was not true – areas that had more women involved were never discriminatory against men.
