Slate’s Double X Gabfest, which includes Hanna Rosin, discusses the state of manhood, including Kay Hymowitz’s book, Manning Up. Interesting discussion, except Rosin keeps insisting that women have been doing better than men in school for 100 years. Perhaps when it comes to GPA, but the relevant measure is college graduation rate, and those gaps are relatively new. Whatever is happening to men started only about 25 years ago.
