So they grow up and if the miracle happens and they actually get married and leave the family home they figure they`ll just replace their mommies with their wives and then we have the situation you describe in the OP.
Y`all are reaping what you`ve sown.
I`ll get some popcorn now.
Abraham Lincoln had a great quote: "“You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was.”
At some point, as an adult, every excuse that you have that you think "holds you back" - such as how you were raised, your mother, your father, lack thereof, whatever - is just that - an excuse.
So, if men have indeed stopped being men (which I dispute, at least for the men I have mostly encountered in my life), then it is men themselves that are holding themselves back and down. Nobody else can do it. We are all responsible for ourselves, and can overcome many things if we persevere and refuse to live with excuses.
