STATE OF MAN 2012

男人国度 2012

 

IT 'S BEEN 20 YEARS SINCE WE LAST SURVEYED MEN ABOUT THEIR LIVES. TIME TO CATCH UP WITH THE AMERICAN MALE.

从上次我们对男性生存状态进行调查以来已经20年了,现在是时候再次关注一下美国男人了。

 

Like women, men are a mystery. But we are a mystery that can be solved. We have simple, direct needs. We express those needs in simple, direct ways. And yet, according to the self-proclaimed experts, all is not well in Testosterone Town. Some 40 years ago, the historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. asked, "What has happened to the American male? Men are more and more conscious of maleness not as a fact but a problem." In her 1999 book, Stiffed, Susan Faludi documented what she said was a sense of loss among men for the days when they had a role in public life, a way to earn a decent living and appreciation at home. In fact, men have been adjusting to these and other challenges for centuries. It has been two decades since PLAYBOY last polled American males, so we asked Harris Interactive to survey 1,000 men online and weight the results to reflect the demographics of the larger population. We hoped to find out who you are, what you do and how you see life. How do you measure up?

和女人没什么不同,男人也是种神秘的生物。但我们的迷可以被解答,因为我们有简单的、直接的需要。我们表达那些需求的方式更简单、更直接。然而,那些自称的所谓专家,对"睾酮镇"并不十分在行。40年前,历史学家雅瑟·施莱辛格曾问道:"美国男人怎么了?男人越来越意识到:所谓的雄性特征,不像真的,要画个问号。"苏珊·法鲁迪在她1999年出版的书《Stiffed》(stiffed:僵硬的;俚语,尸体)中,记录了她曾说过,男人们面对他们在公众生活中担当的角色,要赚取体面的生活并在家里受到欣赏,失落感与日俱增。事实上,男人们面对这样或那样的挑战,几个世纪以来一直在不断调整自己。自上次Playboy对男性进行民意测验以来已经有二十年了,所以,我们请哈里斯互动公司在线调查了1000个男人,并用该结果作为反应更多人口的统计学资料。我们希望找出这些问题的答案:你是谁?你在干什么和你怎样看待生活,以及你在多大程度上符合标准。

 

MONEY

金钱

Whatever their income, men typically have a complicated relationship with money. They feel pressure to provide, which causes them to equate money with security. Unfortunately, living below your means isn't an American trait. The past six years have not been easy: The wealth of middle-class households has fallen to levels last seen in the early 1990s (mostly due to the drop in home values), and many men have faced the stress of losing a job. We asked men to tell us about their finances and how those numbers add up in terms of personal identity. Does money buy happiness? Or delay it?

不管收入如何,男人们和金钱的关系相当复杂。他们对付出存有压力,这导致对他们来说金钱等于安全。不幸的是,生存状态低于期望不是美国做派。过去的6年很不容易:中产阶级的家庭财富暴跌至90年代初期的水平(主要归因于房价下跌),而且很多男人面临失去工作的压力。我们征询男性的财务,以及按照他们的个人身份将这些数字进行汇总。金钱能买到快乐吗?还是耽误了快乐?
