I think the point is, correlation does not equal causation, so linking the two without allowances for variation and calling it fact is very frustrating to some of us, there are millions of reasons why there might be a correlation which might have more to do with the people involved, rather than the lck of males per se. For example, I have a friend who has a habit of talking down her ex in front of the kids, I hate that I have had to shut her up when she does it but I know that when I am not there she is running her mouth off.
Now, children closely identify with their parents, I reckon those kids have a far more dire outlook than most of my generation who didn't know our fathers at all.
So, not literal, I just think the theory is simplistic.
