‘Are men really necessary? Good question’

ManA short while ago, while looking-up something on Google, I stumbled upon this article from columnist Minette Marrin from the Times Online: ”Are men really necessary? Good question.”

An excerpt from the article:

I loathe the word celebration, as it is now used, but what we need, I believe, is a celebration of men and masculinity. If feminism is running according to the usual historical rules, we will probably get one: a backlash is overdue. Men have wonderful qualities which women often lack and need. Men are much more likely than women to be of exceptionally high – and exceptionally low – intelligence; they are on average stronger, funnier and have a better three-dimensional sense and they are usually better at techy things. They are much more likely to be architects, composers, mathematicians, joke tellers and orators and are more inventive. As Camille Paglia once said, if civilisation had been left to women, we’d still be living in grass huts.

It’s a very interesting piece of writing. I invite you to read it for yourself.
