Any person's experiences will shape their behaviour towards others. In regards to males specifically, there are problems with general societies attitude towards isolated male suffering, eg the abuse of a boy by parents or caretakers, physical or sexual abuse, spouse abuse, rape etc. There are also society wide institutional problems, such as incarceration of males for trivial things like weed etc.
When a common theme or response to your suffering is indifference, or worse, ridicule and dismissal, it is not a stretch to see on a large sample of people that will result in anti social behaviour in a portion of them.
The problem with tuff nutz like welch is that he takes his personal triumph of shrugging off things and regards that as good social policy. By all means preach it, but realise that not going to work for each and every person, and other people have to pick up the mess when things go very badly.
