Sheryl Sandberg on Falsity of Media's End-of-Men Meme: Men Still Rule

Sheryl Sandberg writes that even as the mainstream media recurrently create a faux (and entirely false) "end-of-men" meme, men still rule the world and the women's rights movement has stalled.

I'll say: take a look at the faces of American's ten greediest citizens at present, as compiled by Sam Pizzigati at Common Dreams.  Notice anything those ten faces of egregiously greedy and power-hungry citizens of the U.S. have in common?

Men still rule the world.  White men, in particular still rule the world.  White heterosexual or heterosexual-posturing men rule the world.

And they're not about to let anyone forget that anytime soon.
