To Men Who Voted For Biden, Female-focused “Gender Policy Council” Stings

On March 9, 2021, President Biden signed an Executive Order creating a White House Gender Policy Council, with a mission to promote gender equality and equity. However, men, who as we have noted earlier are a large reason Biden was elected, are not included in the mission of the council.

Excluding half the population is not unity, Mr. President.

The council plans to “guide and coordinate government policy that impacts women and girls,” with not a single mention of boys and men. This attitude is completely misguided, and the fact that the leadership of both this country and the council do not understand this in 2021 is incredibly disheartening to those who support true equality under the law. Men and boys are just as affected by government policy as women and girls, and have just as many needs.

The above memo release from the White House announced the formation of the White House Gender Policy Council, which became official via an Executive Order in March 2021. Notice how the council only focuses on women, and not men. Susan Rice even had the audacity to claim that “Every issue is a women’s issue,” implying that no issue is a men’s issue, which we find insulting. Every issue is a human issue, both male and female. Thanks to Our-Comeback on Youtube for the graphic.

While we of course support the well-being of women and girls, the facts bear out the idea that boys and men are doing much worse in a whole host of areas. Therefore, the White House Gender Policy Council should also examine and help support boys and men’s issues. Let’s look at a few topics focused on the well-being of boys and men that the gender policy could look into, just for starters:

In the United States in 2021:

Men die approximately 6 years earlier than women, yet the government has a Department of Women’s Health, and none for men. How about creating a Department of Men’s Health to help men live equally as long as women? That would be a great project for the White House Gender Policy Council.

Only men are required to register for selective service registration, ie availability for the draft, a clear violation of the equal protection clause. Remedying that would be a great project for the White House Gender Policy Council.

Boys are significantly underperforming girls at all levels of education. It has gotten to the point that at the college level, women are earning approximately 60% of degrees, compared to 40% for men. That means women are earning 50% more degrees than men! Fixing this by helping more young men earn degrees, so that they are equal with women, would be a great project for the White House Gender Policy Council.

The US has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and 93% percent of prison population is male — this is a gender issue that affects males. How can we simultaneously lower the incarceration rate for men and still lower the crime rate? A combination of fixing the criminal justice system, and supporting the raising of boys with a multitude of efforts to support fatherhood and boys education, would be a good start. The goal should be to reduce the number of men incarcerated to be equal to that of women, while reducing crime. This would be a perfect project for the White House Gender Policy Council.

Gender inclusive language is institutionalized for women, when we use gender neutral terms like committee chair, fire fighter, and postal carrier. However, we do not do the same for men. For instance, the Biden-authored Violence Against Women Act, or VAWA, seems to deny the existence of male victims of domestic violence. It could be changed to something gender neutral, such as the Domestic Violence Prevention Act. This would be a great goal for the White House Gender Policy Council.

One more: the Title IX statute prevents discrimination by gender for any educational institution receiving federal funding. However, hundreds of institutions have been violating this with impunity for decades by creating female-only programs, including the illustrious Stanford University which recently had complaints filed for a whopping 23 female-only programs that violated Title IX. Making sure that all institutions comply with the law, and treat men and women equally, would be another great project for the White House Gender Policy Council.

Notice how all of these support the mission of “gender equality and equity” while supporting the well-being of boys and men. is calling for the Biden White House Gender Policy Council to immediately rewrite its mission to include boys and men, and to adjust its members and goals accordingly. Anything less is completely antithetical to the stated purpose of the council.

Biden Wins with Support of Male Voters

President Joe Biden did significantly better with male voters in 2020 than did Hillary Clinton in 2016, a major reason he was elected to the White House.

According to exit polls, Biden was a -1 with men, an 11 point increase over Hillary’s numbers. Given that men are such a large voting bloc, an 11 point jump over Hillary is enormous, and indicative that any presidential candidate in the future should pay attention to this group.

Lincoln Project Targets Male Voters in Latest Ad, Entitled Simply: “Men”

The Lincoln Project has been making headlines with its outspoken support of Biden and other Democratic candidates while actively denouncing Trump. What’s surprising about this is that its founders are former, and recent, Republicans.

In their latest ad, they have done something that we rarely see, but are very happy about at this point — created an ad targeted at the male voting bloc. It is a refreshing change to see a campaign actively targeting men as a demographic. In fact, it was so direct, the ad was simply entitled: “Men.”

The “Men” ad from the Lincoln Project, supporting Joe Biden. It is a direct appeal to men, specifically those men who voted for Trump in 2016, to acknowledge their “mistake” and vote for Biden in 2020.

The ad does not target all men — it specifically asks those men who voted for Trump in 2016 to vote for Biden in 2020, acknowledging that they made a “mistake” as any good man could do. It invokes hard-working middle-American men/fathers, and some commenters felt the message was a bit shaming.

However, we at are simply happy to have an ad targeted at men, even if it is only a subset. We love the imagery and the importance placed on fatherhood. So if you are a Biden supporter, you should be happy that the Lincoln Project, who are former Republicans, clearly understand the importance of the male vote in support of Democrats. If you are a Trump supporter who does not like the ad, we ask, where is Trump’s male-positive campaign ad? Show us and we’ll post it.

Eight Days Until Election Day – Biden Now Even with Male Voters

In a key determinant of potential victory, Joe Biden is polling even with male voters according to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, as reported on This is a key number that we are watching during the presidential race. And right now, Biden is polling close to where Obama was in 2008, a good sign for him.

Biden is polling even with male voters with 8 days left before voting day — a good sign for Biden, putting his number close to Obama’s in 2008.

As we have seen in every election since 1972, if the Republican candidate wins the male vote by more than 7.5%, that candidate has won. On the other hand, when the Democratic candidate has lost male voters by 7.5% or less (or even won the male vote by a small margin), then the Democrats took the White House.

Therefore, if this is an indicator, the numbers are looking good for Biden as he is well ahead of that 7.5% figure, even with a 3% margin of error.

Male voting patterns have consistently swayed elections — since 1972, when Republicans win the male vote by more than 7.5%, they win the White House. Conversely, when Democrats win the male vote or lose by less than 7.5%, they win. We are watching this number in 2020 to gain insight on the Presidential Election. Currently, Biden and Trump are polling even with men, a positive sign for Biden.

Will Male Voters Decide the 2020 US Presidential Election?

In 2016, many analysts said that male voters, particularly in the so-called “Brexit states,” put Trump in the White House. What will happen in 2020? A look at history will help us understand what’s possible.

Graph of US Presidential election voting results by gender, 1972 through 2016, with polling of 2020 election as of Oct. 29, 2020. Past data is gathered via exit polls.

This graph is one of foundational pieces of information for, and we believe this represents an opportunity for both parties to understand presidential politics better. There is a tremendous amount to be learned from this one graph — men and women both favored Nixon in 1972 and Carter in 1976; men strongly preferred Reagan and G.H.W. Bush; men preferred Clinton twice, G.W. Bush twice, Obama in 2008, and Trump in 2016. These differences forecasted the White House for 40 years, and may forecast the 2020 winner.

The 2020 data (grey dots): Biden is polling even with male voters, and close to +20 with female voters, according to data posted at the Rutgers Poll Tracker.

We also see a widening of the gap between men and women voting, indicating a possible larger cultural split between the genders in the US.
