Is it possible that the depiction of males (stereotypical males) in electronic media is responsible for the demise of male (general)?
As Philip Zimbardo explained in his newest TED talk (The demise of guys?), boys are now outperformed by girls in school (elementary, graduate, etc), and what we're now seeing as that (from my observation) the world is switching roles in society (we're seeing more female leaders, the introduction of females to the working industry, etc). As the world changed since the raise of women's rights, is it fair to say that media depiction of males (males are insensitive, insecure about relationships, afraid of commitment, so on and so on) in our society is mostly responsible for "the demise of guys" as Philip Zimbardo stated.
