What troubled me about the Stats SA 2011 Census form is that the name of the household head had to be entered first. Now in a home of equal partners, what do one do? Be that as it may ... the world is still predominantly run by men. "The top honchos ar mostly men, most north of 55" observes Caroline Southey aptly.

In the case of women the menopause issue had been "flushed out following decades of debate, experimentation, medical research and billion-dollar hormone replacement therapy business. Not so with male menopause".
The problem is, suggests Southey "that these illutrious men do not even know they [might] have a problem ... or they do not want to know what it is". She elaborates about the telltale signs and remarks that the "consequences hardly need to be spelt out. Weighty decisions are being made ... on a daily basis by men suffering from some, if not all, of these afflictions. Ill-tempered and crabby [and egoisticly], they are deciding on matters ..."
"... there is a stong case to be made for middle-aged men in power to start popping pills or nibbling on some liquorice route. Or klep could be served at board-meeting tea breaks."
