American women are now dominating careers that once went only to men and more women are graduating from U.S. colleges.

Some experts argue that men are finished and women are taking over.

Others say that male and female roles are simply shifting.

Bah...just another steered bit of propaganda to create waves of discord and separation...who cares and why?  If the ladies want the stress that goes with being the leader or breadwinner...I say "go for it" and that is not being mean or callous.  Why not give them a fair chance?  Everything is perception...the grass is not always greener...the glass is half full or half empty...sometimes we want things for unknown reasons and when we get them...it's anti-climactic and we wonder WTH we were thinking...


The sad part is when "societal views and values" makes someone feel greater or lesser than another because of gender... or anything else for that matter...that is not the "nature" of the universe.

Everyone has equal value and everyone has a role to play...remember...beyond all the trappings of wealth, social standing, gender and sexuality...we are one.  To devalue another for any reason is to belittle your own self.

But that's just my opinion.

It's because our hormones are jacked! Things we eat and drink are radically altering men in general. Especially men younger than 30. Look at them, they're mostly girly metro types. You rarely see a masculine jock type real man anymore with a killer instinct. The fight has been taken from them all.

i agree the younger men are becoming more girly and sensitive. I'm not a sexist but man is a man and that's that.
But the reality is when the times get ruff ( let say war or else) the men will always take control and the women's are hiding in the shelters ( most of them )

Say what? Younger men are becoming more feminine...someone should tell that to my 22 year old son. On second thought, better not, the result would not be 'pleasant' (to say the least). As for women being cowards, courage takes forms other than fighting. :yes:

Does your son watch Jersey Shore, Dancing With the Stars, or shop at designer mall stores/outlets for his clothes? If so, he's metro. A real man is an outdoorsman type, rugged, strong, not afraid to get his hands dirty, or bloody, might even like it too. A guy who can work on cars, and fix generally everything, kills bugs, grill food, and is not typically afraid of anything.

  • I may not be the smartest, or the best looking, or the most successful but...what was I saying? I'm depressed.

I would say that men have taken the world as far as they can.

Time to let women dominate. Could things really turn out any worse? :P

What "a real man is" is completely subjective. If a guy has no interest in cars or grilling but he's say an English teacher instead, he's not a real man?

My son is apx. 6' 3" 260 lbs. He doesn't do any of those  metro things. He's a 2nd degree black belt in American Kempo, a business major, and works demolition. He fears very little (ie, you'd better be heavily armed if you want to mess with him). Oh, and his hands do look rather grubby (probably from the demo work).  :)

Nope, never laid a hand on either of my kids.

(the force is stronger than the switch)

Ok, to be completely fair...I might have swatted their diapered bottoms when they were at a pre-verbal stage due to reaching for a hot stove. But, I never spanked them as kids.
