WSJ Saturday Essay

Posted in magazine articles, media, news by jenapincott on March 27, 2010


Here’s a link to my essay in today’s Wall Street Journal. To attract attention, the WSJ gave it a lightning-rod title: “Why Women Don’t Go For Macho Men.” Men, please stop sending me hate mail! My article — and the study on which it is based — are more nuanced.

(The print edition has the title “The Masculine Mystique,” which inspires an entirely different response.)

    I reckon you have a very good point with the study.

    Also, hatemail is a stupid way of admitting that you do not respect other people’s points of view, or other models or theories in research even. ..You’d think that people who read the Wall Street Journal would know a little better.

    ..It might also show how sensitive men get once we start talking about masculinity..especially if it will affect _their_ masculinity, them being in a country with an arguably high health..
