Well I must say I am somewhat astonished (although not surprised) at the amount of venom spewed by both men and women over Noer’s opined article.

Some unfortunate “facts” for men.

Women outnumber men 6 to 4 in the US population.

More women and less men are making it into the college classrooms and getting their degrees.

In my daily travels, it can be eye-opening to see all the stupid acting young male adults wandering the streets with only “one thang” on their minds. The same thing can be said for the young women with the young men, but somehow are very fortunate to avoid pregnancies during their teen years; somehow….someway… the light bulb comes on by twenty something and the girls wake up and get serious about their lives. The same thing can’t be said about the men. That’s why 98% of oil changers, lawn jockeys, etc. are male. All brawn and very little brains.

Wake up men before it too late.

Signed. Mr-Mom

Very well written.

I believe the title of this article helped it get off on the wrong foot. Both my husband and I are career professionals and I am the first to admit that we have logisitical challenges that we would not have (maybe) if one of us did not work. On the other hand, we also enjoy the financial advantages and different experiences that come along with it.

If the article had been more balanced and focused on the general impact that two/one careers (male or female) has on a family (good and bad), I’m not sure everyone would be so excited about it.

If an article was written in Time magazine, “Why women shouldn’t marry men who make under $50K and don’t buy you flowers”, I’m sure that would article would also get a decent response….maybe…

That is a lie

Just saying it’s a lie doesn’t make it so.  You might have a hard time believing it, but if you want to appear at all credible you need to support it with something called evidence.  In other words, prove it!

You’re a dumbass. Challenger doesn’t have to prove anything. Anyone who makes a statement has to prove what they say when they’re challenged. 4 to 6? Male to female ratio of 4 to 6? Crap like that is what’s keeping women behind not men. I’m sick of all of you dumb morons trying to sound logical and smart when all you do is whine and bitch
And here is your goddamn evidence

go down all the way to “Sex Ratio”.

See, this is called research.  I was suspicious of a “fact” someone used and looked it up.  Here it is – roughly 51% of the US population is made up of women.  http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/00000.html

It’s tough to argue with legitimate data, isn’t it?  If you really want to win an argument, you need to use facts, not just pull stuff out of your ass.

51% means its split down the middle. it means it’s close to 1 to 1. 4 to 6 means it 40% to 60%. You’re an idiot.

I’m not pulling stuff out of my ass. I gave you a link to CIA’s world fact book. You even said it’s 51% to 49% that is in no way close to 60% to 40%. That is the dumbest thing I have heard all day. Any school that is responsible for educating you should be burned to the ground

Some unfortunate “facts” for men. Women outnumber men 6 to 4 in the US population.

And 1 out of 4 men simply refuse to marry. You win!

It’s funny how we hear a lot of complaints from women about men who only want one thing, but never hear compaints from men about women who want everything.

It is true that colleges are very skewed in favor of females these days. When I taught there I had some classes that were more than 2:1 female. There’s are two very good articles with an explanation for this:
“Why Males Don’t Go to College”
( http://www.glennsacks.com/why_males_dont.htm ); and
“Mysterious Decline — Where Are the Men on Campus?”
( http://www.glennsacks.com/mysterious_decline_where.htm )

Hey man, you need to chill! It’s really okay. People should be able to express opinions here without criticism. Who cares what the ratios are? The article had nothing to do with that.
