First, it doesn't take two incomes. My wife doesn't work, and we making our house, car, and utility payments without any trouble, take a couple of vacations a year, and stuff 9% into the 401K; all on a salary closer to 50K than 100K. What it takes is realizing that it isn't necessary to have the same toys as your friends and neighbors, realizing what you can and can't afford.
Second, when did tattoos become the province of men? Both sexes have been sporting them since the early days of the Egyptian empires. Butch haircuts? Next you'll be telling me that long-haired men are trying to be like women. Are you seriously basing your evaluation of another person's masculinity or femininity solely on their personal appearance preferences and ever-changing social fashions? What do you want women to wear, burqas? Lingerie? Little black dresses? Should men all have crew cuts and overalls? Must I carry a sidearm, or will a sword suffice?
There isn't a rising 'prevalence' of homosexuality, there's a rising visibility. There aren't more homosexuals; there's less social pressure for homosexuals to pretend they're not. But what does homosexuality have to do with the percentage of women in the workplace? What does it have to do with ANYTHING?
"Men can't be men ..." According to who? Define what it means to be 'a man.' Working as the sole wage earner? As to the 'sweat of the brow', find me anyone who doesn't want better for his children.
'Sins' are a religious concept. Who's to say your definition matches mine, and which of us is right or wrong? Whenever anyone starts talking about sexual equality, the religious right starts jamming its beliefs down everyone's throats and selectively reminiscing about the good ol' days.
