This comment on feminism from a male columnist, caught my eye today. "..Feminism may have posed women some hard questions and tough choices, but it's been nothing but upside for men. If you visit any society that still boasts a two-tier social system with insecure, macho and status-conscious men, you'll see women who are wary and distant around them, but who are incredibly solid, amused and supportive of each other. Where the sexes are equal, men get twice as many friends who have opinions, aspirations, expectations about happiness and careers and sex, who tell jokes and share the load. Where is the downside in that?.." AA Gill, The Sunday Times. Apologies, I can't link to the article as it's a subscription site. A common-sense view?
