Thank you, Muriel,

The link you gave is very interesting. Here are a few extracts.
As part of it deals with Germany, I send it to our German Forum, although it is written in English.

The difficult position of the macho man !

Men might be unhappy because of women.This sentiment is partly linked to
family. That is to say that women are increasingly rejecting the roles
traditionally assigned to them, of being wives and mothers. It is partly
linked to work, given that there are more and more women in positions
of responsibility, and they are gaining recognition.the desire to return to the more traditional gender roles is experienced by both Scandinavian and Italian men, but in different ways, with different attitudes and reactions. In Norway, the increasing importance of the role of women in society over the last ten years seems to have provoked some kind of ‘depression’ in men, and is shown through a drop in school performance by boys, in work performance by men, as well as a worsening in the health of the latter. In Italy, where the influence of catholicism is stronger, men are trying to defend their position.
Like inhabitants of a fortified city under siege, they are ready to go
over the battlements and fight the army of female aggressors. In short
they’re resisting, resisting, resisting, and then making themselves feel
better about the situation by spitting out coarse jokes at the bar. One example comes from a country which plays a fundamental role in Europe, Germany. In late October 2012 the contributions to a gender equitable society conference in Berlin was organised by the minister of family affairs, Kristina Schroeder, in collaboration with the Austrian minister of social affairs, Rudolf Hundstrofer.
The objective of this meeting was to propose new policies to promote
equality between the sexes. Representatives from Germany, Austria and Switzerland
participated, including politicians, university researchers, ministry
experts, and representatives from organisations who deal with the rights
of boys, men and fathers. In short, there are those trying not to
surrender to the advances that the so called ‘weaker sex’ is making.

Defend manhood


Furthermore, it is interesting to note that, in spite of what has already been mentioned,
There
are countries in which women are treated merely as objects, as in some
way inferior to the male sex. These are places in which men are too
proud to admit to feeling intimidated, or to form associations and
committees in defense of manhood.

Hi Muriel Guilaine, everyone,

I don't have any problem with this.

However, the text was not written by an EMT (Gianni Contarino) despite cafebabel.co.uk and it's a pity for such article on such a Web site. Sad There are mistakes.
.uk language sites should be perfect as they might be considered as models in English. Sad
On WebReference, birth countries and skills are clearly displayed.

I'll read further a bit later.

Hi Gerard
I had first put this link in the german lounge because we have been exchanging a lot about
"what is the ideal man the german Frau is dreaming of" This link was a kind of veiled refenrence to that

Sorry about the mistakes Sad

Hi Muriel,

MurielB a écrit:... Sorry about the mistakes Sad
Not your fault.
Everytime I can read a text in English, I'm ready to "analyze" the language to learn something new: grammar, vocabulary, pattern, etc.
When I see something is published on a .co.uk Web site, I have a tendancy to trust!
A .co.uk site has the responsibility for a good language level... a pity that article is not written in good English.

( Wink "Café polyglotte sur le Net" though a .com site, must be good at French)
