Is Christianity Keeping People Poor?

Christian Piatt | Posted 10.21.2014 | Religion
Christian Piatt

We claim to have a heart for the poor, for changing the world to more closely reflect the divinely inspired kingdom vision offered to us by Jesus. And yet, the tools required to make the changes are right before us. It's how we're choosing to employ them that betrays the darker nature of our all-too-human hearts.

Too Much Supervision Is Hurting Our Kids

Don't you remember how you used to disappear with your friends for hours at a time? Exploring, building, hiding, playing, making up songs and dances, fighting, tossing a ball, always playing in the street, coming up with strict hierarchical kid societies, disappearing into nature?

America's obsession with safety has stunted children's development. It has made play so boring that American children spend hours on the sofa with their video games, contributing to the crisis of obesity.

We find ourselves, as a society, at one of the greatest pivot points in our nation's history. The jobs of the future -- those high-paying jobs that on balance will drive families into the middle class and beyond -- will favor women.

Does the persistent resonance of The Bell Jar, and of Plath's life itself, represent a literary achievement, or a cultural failure?

Don't Write Men Off Just Yet

Dr. Peggy Drexler

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?

Where I differ with Rosin and Mundy is over their skimpy analysis of what caused all this.

The Masculine Critique

Brad Harrington | Posted 12.08.2012 | Business
Brad Harrington

Difficult economic circumstances, less-than-stellar academic performance, and growing equality for women may have all conspired to lessen men's advantage at work, but "success" in the workplace is not the only or ultimate measure of a life well-lived.

Where Are The Men?

Tom Sightings | Posted 12.08.2012 | Fifty
Tom Sightings

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.

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.

Why One Man Welcomes 'The End Of Men'

Carlos Gomez | Posted 11.28.2012 | Books

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.

What Men Need on Their Bedside Tables

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
