Sometime in the next 24 hours we will be switching European Tribune over to a new layout. This will involve a little downtime and no doubt some teething troubles. Do not adjust your set. - Colman

Thanks for your diary. I wonder how many men will enter the traditional "female" fields of teaching, nursing, childcare, etc., in order to have any job at all. I wonder how many will bone up on their child-rearing, house-keeping, home-maintaining skills in order to be of use to a woman who is the primary bread-winner?

The house-husband role is still reacted to with a touch of scorn, pity or humor when encountered by many, though it seems to me to be a valid and necessary and honorable endeavor.

'tis strange I should be old and neither wise nor valiant. From "The Maid's Tragedy" by Beaumont & Fletcher

Most women aren't interested in this kind of man. They'd rather be single.

The working class male will become a permanent underclass. It will be a gradually diminishing class, since they will commit suicide at a large rate. Unless wars can be invented to keep them busy.

When robots start taking over more or most of the simple jobs, that's the future for the working class women as well. And the middle class.
