Actually many men do neuter themselves. In general we don't need to since we have many methods of controlling our rate of breeding. Cats don't.
You have a simple choice. Don't help them in any way. Do not feed them. Do not get them vet treatment. Do not provide them with shelter. If you do that many will live short miserable lives and die very young but that will ameliorate the birthrate and lead to a stable population of unhealthy cats that lead miserable lives.

A few years later they were plagued by over 100 cats.
In my 20+ years in Greece if I have learned one thing it is that in the psychology of a large number of Greeks, I would say a majority but I cannot produce evidence to support that, neutering dogs and cats is regarded as not natural but drowning kittens/puppies or poisoning adults is regarded as totally natural. If I had to choose between a long, safe, comfortable life in which I cannot breed and one in which I had a high probability of being killed I know which I would vote for.
