It is men who die on the battlefields, who are last in the lifeboats, and who stand as the ladies sit.
It can be argued that the toll that stress takes on men, e.g. the heart attacks and early death rates in the corporate world, is the result of the exploitation of the male minority by the female majority.
However, as the father of a daughter and a son, and as someone who loves people, whether they be men or women, I definitely favor a healthy balance. I'm sure you do too.
The best way for this to happen is for government to prevent discrimination on the basis of sex and for society to encourage everyone to pursue happiness in his or her own way.
I think there has been a balance throughout most of the world's history. E.g., when women were not allowed to own property, it was men who died on the battlefields.
