This article just drips with self-important hyperbole. Mid-twenty young men are the epitome of irresponsibility, living as perpetual teenagers because they can, avoiding all those nasty things like marriage and children, yada yada yada.
As a mid-twenties male, this ruffles my feathers just a bit. I could cite examples from my own life to explain why her generalizations are pure rubbish, but I think one point will do it nicely.
She laments the number of young men who aren't married and makes it out to be a problem with the men.
News flash, Kay: This means that there is an equally large number of mid-twenty women out there who are not married.
In large part, the move away from marriage is due to my generation's antipathy towards it; most will simply cohabitate and call it a day. Still, the women will have some similar reasons to men for not being married aside from a lack of desire to do so. Many would rather focus on their careers, or perhaps have found themselves so picky that there really isn't a suitable man out there.
Whatever their reasons are, if the young men aren't getting married, Kay, then neither are the young women, and they have to take credit for their own prolonged adolescence as well.
