Don't Write Men Off Just Yet

For many years, I faithfully drank eight glasses of water a day. I was told it was good for me. I never really knew who first said that, or why. Now I find out that it's just a rough guideline from a 1945 government report; which also pointed out that we get most of the water we need from just eating food. I'm beginning to wonder if the same thing is happening in that turbulent new arena of gender handicapping: that women are rising and men are toast -- their masculine roles as fire starter and bear killer usurped by a new age of female power. Like the water rule, it's been repeated so often, we've come to accept it as fact. But also like the water rule, conventional wisdom about the decline of men ignores an important qualifier.

Frightened Men Love Mitt Romney

Really, how could any semi-enlightened male worth his Detroit auto bailout possibly wish for a vacuous one-percenter like Mitt Romney, a guy who would just as soon lay them off as sell them to China for scrap?

Doing This to Your Husband Does Not Make Him More of a Man

I woke with a sickening thud. The thud was my heel, coming down on something strange and unnatural. I heard a scream and woke completely. I had stomped on my husband's balls. In my sleep.

The End of Men? No, But it's Time for Women to Fight

Christina Patterson | Posted 12.04.2012 | Women
Christina Patterson

The idea that Western society is facing "the end of men" almost makes you titter a bit hysterically. It almost makes you want to sit down with a cup of coffee, and perhaps a cake, but definitely not a cupcake, and ask the American journalist who thinks it is if she's mad.

Somewhere along the timeline of women's liberation, the message that we can have it all morphed into an oppressive belief that we should be able to do it all.

Perhaps the lack of prominent female friendships in network television is the response to a kind of cultural anxiety in the wake of books and articles trumpeting "the end of men."

Carlos Gomez

Our model of masculinity is outdated and quickly becoming obsolete. As scary as that might sound, it is actually good news. The better news - many of the guys in my younger generation are already adapting by rethinking and redefining what it means to be a man.

I am not suggesting that anyone dumb down job requirements. I'm simply demonstrating how one little word (in this case, the word "agency") can make the difference between stellar candidates or stellar male candidates.

Does a stay-at-home dad volunteering at your children's school "startle" you? How about a female CEO? A male nurse? A female rugby player?

Nina Burleigh

It can't be easy to be a man these days, what with the gender's looming end, but thinking about Naomi Wolf's new and much-ridiculed biography of the vagina has reminded me once again of the main reason why I would not want to be a man

I've never had a problem meeting bread winners. My challenge is meeting a wage earner who cares about something besides himself, his screenplays and Tim Tebow.

The Phony 'Gender Wars'

Rick Newman | Posted 06.19.2012 | Women
Rick Newman

Do families break apart and relationships falter because men are irrelevant and fail to recognize their own obsolescence? Do men and women really tussle over who is dominant economically?

How the Gender Wars Became a Class War

Joan Williams | Posted 05.20.2012 | Media
Joan Williams

When The Atlantic's article "The End of Men" came out, I was irritated. They're at it again in a piece that crows about "The Spectacular Triumph of Working Women Around the Globe" -- a title that becomes mystifying as soon as you read the article.

Marcia Reynolds
