Foreign Policy has an article, The Death of Macho by Reihan Salam, siting compelling evidence that your daughters’ future will likely be brighter than your sons’.
The Great Recession, as their calling our current economic situation was caused by “macho” testosterone heavy policy, reaction and motivation and the price has been men and their macho jobs taking the brunt of economic cut-backs.
The recession, in spite of all feminism promised, is actually The World Wide Economic Revolution femininity has been waiting for, the article states.
“For years, the world has been witnessing a quiet but monumental shift of power from men to women. Today, the Great Recession has turned what was an evolutionary shift into a revolutionary one. The consequence will be not only a mortal blow to the macho mens club called finance capitalism that got the world into the current economic catastrophe; it will be a collective crisis for millions and millions of working men around the globe.”
What’s unclear is whether this is more burden or blessing for women and girls. Or whether our sons and their fathers can handle it.
