Rethinking the Definition of a ‘Real Man’

Record-levels of American men are out of work — and have stopped looking for jobs. It’s time for our culture to adjust expectations about the kind of work men should be expected to do. The answer, in part, lies in men accepting jobs currently dominated by women.

According to The New York Times, “The seven million men who are not even looking for work — about 60 percent of whom do not have four-year college degrees — spent an average of five and a half hours a day watching television or movies. Very few cared for children or other household members, or did housework. A third admitted to illegal drug use.”
