Males Running Scared?

For centuries, it was women who were trodden down by men; and how they reveled in it. in the past less than half a century, women have been moving forward faster than men and breaking glass ceilings by the dozen. And lo and behold, the guys have gotten such a complex they are demanding a 'level playing field'. Why separate awards for best actor and best actress, they ask? Why not just one Best Actor award? So threatened already?
Why not make it just one Best Actress Award then?
In the current trend of young actresses preferring to be known as Actor, my query is:
Why do you fight shy of your feminity and the word Actress? Will the use of the word Actor in any way minimize gender discrimination or the predators of the casting couches?
