Why men are perhaps, maybe, possibly losing a teeny-tiny bit of their privilege

The following is excerpted corrected from an opinion column on by William J. Bennett, whose title was should have been "Why men are in trouble possibly losing a teeny-tiny bit of their privilege":
The data does not bode well for men indicates that some progress has been made towards diminishing the great social advantage held by men. In 1970, men earned 60% of all college degrees. In 1980, the figure fell to was 50%, by 2006 it was 43%. Women now surpass men in college degrees by almost three to two perhaps because they are aware that their wages continue to lag behind men of the same educational level.[1], [2], [3]  Women's earnings grew 44% in real dollars from 1970 to 2007 (not surprising given the great increase in women's participation in the workforce)[4], compared with 6% growth for men.
