Study Shows Life Sucks for Sensitive, New-Age Guys

As reported in the Washington Post, a study by Beth A. Livingston and Timothy Judge published in the September issue of the Journal of Applied Psychology found that, even controlling for education level, type of job, and hours worked per week,

men with egalitarian attitudes about the role of women in society earn significantly less on average than men who hold more traditional views about women's place in the world.

P.S. I wonder if Christine Lavin will add a verse to her excellent song, "Sensitive New Age Guys" about the fact they're underpaid for their egalitarian attitudes about the role of women. What rhymes with "egalitarian"?
