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.

If women and their adaptable selves are really going to take over the world, we need to make certain that they bring along some men and some historical hindsight.

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?

I don't want men to be gone . . . but wouldn't it be nice if they all understood who wields the real power? And wouldn't it be nice if women did, too?

One day I would like to pick up the Atlantic and see a well-reported article about American women that's without the "What the hell are they up to now?" brand of alarm.

Is Hollywood Experiencing an 'End of Men' Backlash?

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.

Sure, women may be doing better in school, but we're still up against the pay gap and glass ceiling at work and the second shift at home. And that's only half the story.
