The End of Men?

Henry Kissinger famously said, “Nobody will ever win the battle of the sexes. There’s too much fraternizing with the enemy.”  I tend to believe him, but apparently Hanna Rosin of The Atlantic disagrees.  In complete contrast to Half the Sky, she has written an article called The End of Men.

Earlier this year, women became the majority of the workforce for the first time in U.S. history. Most managers are now women too. And for every two men who get a college degree this year, three women will do the same. For years, women’s progress has been cast as a struggle for equality. But what if equality isn’t the end point? What if modern, postindustrial society is simply better suited to women? A report on the unprecedented role reversal now under way— and its vast cultural consequences

Of course this is ludicrous – men aren’t going anywhere soon, but I’m interested to know how reading Half the Sky and/or articles like this make men feel.  Do you feel uncomfortable? Like you are portrayed as the villain in the book?  Angry with your fellow men?

Men, please leave your comments below and let your feelings be known!
