Fascinating topic, given what I see in schools these past few years but I shall not dare enter this fray… I’m not man enough!
OK! I have to chime in with some hot air of contempt despite being a MUNK fan. Are men obsolete? and not one man on the debate panel? Really? If it is humour, that is not your mandate. If it’s debate fodder, who could rally up a contest with that resolution if they aren’t even in the building? It is, IN FACT, a genuine, legitimate question to be asking, as I see men(boys) imploding or eroding left right and center… men are lost and our culture is standing by aloof still PC about feminism. Come on MUNK, you needed to find at least a 50/50 if you expected any kind of legitmate standard of discourse that the community could read, download- discuss- WTF!
The End of Men
Be it resolved, men are obsolete…
November 15, 2013
Since the beginning of human civilization, men have been the dominant sex. But now, for the first time, a host of indicators suggest that women are not only achieving equality with men but are fast emerging as the more successful sex of the species. Whether in education, employment, personal health or child rearing, statistics point to a rise in the status and power of women at home, in the workplace, and in traditional male bastions such as politics. But are men, and the age-old power structures associated with “maleness,” permanently in decline? Or do men still retain significant control over the workplace, the family and society at large, including women? In sum, where are the sexes headed in the 21st century?
To find out, the Munk Debates will move the motion: be it resolved men are obsolete…
