We are going through times of unprecedented change which, as one might expect, is effecting men  in a very different way than women. Change, whether technological or Political, always does. Unfortunately the way we discuss the changes that are effecting us now hasn’t changed and we still use a rhetoric more appropriate for starting a war between the sexes than finding a solution that allows both the individual and society to flourish.

In my opinion, we need to move away from talking about  roles, role reversal and male/female stereotypes because such rhetoric is very restrictive. The language we use to discuss a problem clearly effects the possible solutions we are able to define. Bear this in mind when you read Hanna Rosin‘s article, “The End of Men“. Afterwards you might like to read “It’s Not the End Of Men” by Ann Friedman.
