Is this a “he-cession”?

Men appear to be more at risk for layoffs than women these days.  Nationally, men’s unemployment is increasing faster than women’s.  Since March of last year, the male unemployment rate increased from 4.6% to 8.8%, while the female rate increased from 5.0% to 7.5%.

There are some theories floating out there about why this might be.  What do you think?
