I came across this interesting post on the WSJ. It lists a number of concerns with the overemphasis by our society on female issues. Despite the necessity in correcting some gross inequities, there has been a trend in recent time to marginalize men.
There has been a government funded report on the status of men in one state. The report, from a remarkably stoic and independent state, New Hampshire, is interesting in its own right.
Personally, I have often wondered at the fate of the male half of the human species. In an increasingly "civilized" world, much of our genetic advantages are no longer needed.
Reflecting upon a very recent unpleasant event, my older son asked me,
"why didn't you use your words?".
I could only reply that "sometimes words will not work."
