In historiographical terms: I have the suspicion that just as sure as the middle class is always rising, masculinity is always 'in crisis.'

Funny, that.

(The 'captcha' code for this comment, incidentally, is the appropriate-sounding word 'mancepy'. Seems like that should have a meaning...)

Dominance, penetration, strength, competition, brutalisation, blah...

Assuming a (conservative) rate of €400 per 1,000 words, that's not bad for an afternoon's work.

The enumeration of rotten chestnuts - that's what science journalism in Germany is famous for.

What the feck has Henning Engeln's article got to do with science? Science journalism proper in Germany has got a very good reputation, relatively speaking. You should count yourselves lucky!
