THIS is what caught my attention: Comedian Chris Rock does a routine in which he instructs men on how to listen to a wife or girlfriend talk about her day. Actually paying attention, he insists, isn't essential, just remember to look at her, nod your head and at regular intervals say "Uh huh," "Really?" and "I told you that bitch was crazy." That last response might seem overspecialized, but, Rock insists, no matter what a woman does for a living there's always another woman at work who she's convinced is trying to ruin her life.
...men have become disadvantaged in the educational system, which is leading to lower graduation rates and lower college enrollment, which is increasing the percentage of women enrolled. However, studies show that women are still only compensated, on average, 78% of what men earn.
A 60/40 split in female/male populations substantially alters the dynamics of the group. It's called the operational sex ratio. Turns out ignoring the biological differences between us doesn't mean that we are immune to nature.
There are a number if links to the right that talk about what happens in the workplace in these situations.
