A Fox News op-ed called "The War on Men" alleges that competitive women have turned men into marriage-averse slackers, and has triggered a predictably measured response from the internet.

"If men today are slackers, and if they're retreating from marriage," it's because the modern woman "has pissed them off," claims Suzanne Venker in her Fox column. As she explains it, "men want to love women, not compete with them. They want to provide for and protect their families - " it's in their DNA. But modern women won't let them."

Venker calls this "the war on men," but it turns out that it's more of a self-inflicted wound by women. The alleged results may actually sound A-OK for a lot of men - they get to "have sex at hello and even live with their girlfriends with no responsibilities whatsoever."

The liberal internet has responded to Venker with a big helping of snark. Hannah Rosin, author of The End of Men, claims that she would love to "surrender to her femininity," as Venker urges, but she's clueless as to how to begin. "I get the general idea but what does it mean, like, in practice? Not wear pants so much? Let my hair grow. Ask my boss to pay me a little less? Open to ideas."
