Found this on the net:
Not that things were perfect when I was growing up, but there was still a sense in the culture that Australian men had shown strength and courage as settlers, as soldiers and in sports. It was a positive identity.
And there was still a sense of an "us" when it came to men and women. We seem to be sliding ever further along the line of women seeing men, their own men, as being the opposition, the ones they have to dethrone.
One positive development is that numbers of young Western men are going back to trying to develop their strengths "parallel" to their relationships with women, i.e. they are doing it regardless of what their relationship with women happens to be.
