    Did you even read the reports you cite as debunking the data that men have fared worse in the recession?  For example the unemployment rate for men is a ful 1.1% higher for men and 70% of job losses where by men.  Yes those jobs have been the tiny pittance that have returned but that still nets out to a bigger hit for men ( driven of course by which sectors have taken hits.)

    But that's ok, I guess, if it keeps to the narrative.  

    This is however one time when I hope Newt is right (that increasing empowerment eliminates gender disparities.). Odd to think that newt has a vision of the future I hope comes to pass...

    Intelligent, passionate, perceptive people will always disagree, but we should not let that disagreement, however heartfelt, lead us to become deaf to those better angels of our nature.
