The End of Men

Men have always been the dominant sex. It is a fact that the world is male-dominated. Even the bible is colored by sexism. The first human on earth was a man and the first woman was created from his bone.
Man has always been at the top of the hierarchy. But what about the future? Is man determined to be the dominant sex? In the article “The End of Men”, Hanna Rosin thematises women’s increasing power and the fact that women is now the dominant sex.

Hanna Rosin is very convincing in her argumentation. She uses the appeal form logos by involving the biologist Ronald Ericsson, who supports her theory about women's increasing power in society.
“Even more unsettling for Ericsson, it has become clear that in choosing the sex of the next generation, HE is no longer the boss. “It’s the women who are driving all the decisions,” he says – a change the MicroSort spokespeople I met with also mentioned.” (Lines 29-31). Ericsson supports her theory about the parents who choose to have girls instead of boys, because of the impression that girls have a very bright future.

Of the 15 job categories projected to grow the most in the next decade in the U.S., all but two are occupied primarily by women.” (Lines 95 - 98) First, she uses a statement and then she supports the statement with expert knowledge and facts.
It has a strong effect on the reader that Hanna Rosin uses Ericsson in her argumentation. Ericsson is a ‘real’ man. “Instead of lab coat, he wore cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, and doled out his version of cowboy poetry.” (Lines 10 - 11) Because of Ericsson’s masculinity, it makes Hanna Rosin’s theory a lot more trustworthy that he recognizes it.
