ABSTRACT
The article creates an imaginary role reversal of the lives of men and women with special reference to author Warren Farrell's book "The Liberated Man." In his book "The Liberated Man," Farrell loathes all outward and visible sex attributes. The business card, for instance, is a masculinity card. According to the author, in a role reversal game, men would want to change diapers and do all household chores while women go out and earn a livelihood for their families. Moreover, as part of the role reversal, now men would participate in a male beauty contest where women would admire their physique.
