something to think about..

"The End of Men: How Women Are Taking Control of Everything."  This was the eye-catching headline on the cover of Atlantic Monthly(August 2010).  Here are some highlights (or lowlights if you are a guy) of the article...

"Earlier this year women became the majority in 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.

"Polling data on American sex preference is sparse, and does not show a clear preference for girls.  But the picture from the doctor's office unambiguously does.  A newer method from sperm selection, called MicroSort, is currently completing Food and Drug Administration c linical trials.  The girl requests for that method run at about 75%."

In South Korea, "as recently as 1985, about half of all women in a national survey said they 'must have a son.'  That percentage fell slowly until 1991 and then plummeted to just over 15 percent by 2003....  The same shift is now beginning in other rapidly industrializing countries such as India and China."

The post-industrial economy is indifferent to men's size and strength.  The attributes that are most valuable today — social intelligence, open communication, and ability to sit still and focus — are, at a minimum, not predominantly male.  In fact, the opposite may be true."
