At first I thought it was just me. Then I looked around at my friends. One lost his job in his 40s. He's being supported by his wife who commutes to the city. Another friend is a writer. He sits at home while his wife goes off to work. My friend Robert was forced into early retirement when he was 57. He's the house husband; she's the breadwinner.
If you believe what you hear and see in print, online, and on television, the obituary of manhood has already been written. Men have never appeared more lame, helpless, and absolutely unnecessary. It's as if half the population is on a permanent lunch break. But the demise of men is a myth, fabricated solely to denigrate men by elevating women.
