“Male Original Sin” will be the topic of a presentation by Lionel Tiger, Charles Darwin Professor of Anthropology at Rutgers University, emeritus, at the meeting of 55-Plus at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, November 15, 2012, at the Jewish Center of Princeton, 435 Nassau Street, Princeton, NJ. Everyone is welcome. Admission is free, with a $3 donation suggested.
For decades of public discourse males have been the gender sinners and governmental action (and certainly at universities) has followed. But now males are doing relatively poorly in credentialing and many money-earning venues. Has this to do with female control of reproduction as well increasingly of production? What will parents of boys do?
Lionel Tiger is known for his pioneering role in introducing biosocial data into the social sciences. A graduate of McGill University, the London School of Economics at the University of London, England, he is a consultant to many organizations including Department of Defense, Planned Parenthood, Hudson Institute, PEN American Center, American Institute of Wine and Food, George Polk Awards, etc. Dr. Tiger, who developed the concept of “male bonding” in his classic study Men In Groups, has determined that women are in a trend to surpass men in economic, social and reproductive status.
