Is Feminism To Blame For Increase In Male Suicide Rate?

The Australian Associated Press printed this piece which discusses the 70% increase in suicides over the past twenty years for men aged 20-39. Mention is made of the increasing attacks on masculinity and men's roles in Australian society, as well as the significance of male shame. The article doesn't present much in the way of evidence for this theory, but I have little doubt there is some truth to it, and it is very noteworthy that this idea could get some media attention.
