Are adult video gamers a symptom of a society full of man-children?


Hymowitz dubbed this new generation of young men with the derogatory title "Child-men", saying that because of their attraction to these entertainment forms and their seeming lack of strong commitment skills that we had a maturity gap emerging within society. Young men were no longer rushing to the alter or marrying childhood sweethearts and she seems to place the cause of this on games for one. These "Child-men" came to light because she had spoken with a number of young women and these ladies had decried the lack of good candidates for marriage on the traditional timescale.
