  8. Kevin Gorman (talk · contribs) I'm certainly quite interested in men's issues, and am concerned about Wikipedia's currently unbalanced coverage of them, as well as chronic representation of sources that seems to pop up in a lot of articles. One thing on my to-do list is greatly expanding our content related to rape and sexual assault in prison and its implications, something we currently have very little about.

New articles[edit]

Please feel free to list your new Men's Issues-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, are at least over 1,000 characters, don't have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia Main Page.

The article about Bengal, which was seriously flawed, seems to be gone. Probably a good thing for the encyclopedia. Not that such an article does not belong, it was just the one that was attempted was not the way to do it. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 23:28, 3 October 2013 (UTC)
  • The MRA publication A Voice for Men now has a Wikipedia article and could use expansion and help. I would also like to create articles on other men's rights publications.Dean Esmay (talk) 12:43, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
  • created article about traditional boys' toys and games, needs expansion

Needed articles[edit]

Feel free to request new Men's Issues related articles here.

  • I would like to see the gender lifespan gap discussed: The historical changes. The state of scientific understanding. The effective large economic subsidy it creates for female pensions and health care for female retirees, due to the fact that men bear a disproportionate burden and receive a smaller benefit.
Providing some reliable sources would help get that off the ground.
  • Surpus males Selective abortion of females in some countries, higher survival rate of male infants in first world countries, and polygamy in some cultures leads to millions of "surplus males". They cannot find women to marry (especially since older, richer males marry younger females, including as second wives). They often engage in disruptive and even violent behavior, including in gangs. Through history some leaders may have and may yet start some wars in part to "cull" the males.[1][2][3][4][5][6] Carolmooredc (Talkie-Talkie) 20:41, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
