When I see women and some men marching in the name of feminism and screeching hysterically about how awful men are, I wonder if these women are cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
I despair that a new terminology has entered our language- toxic masculinity.
So men are dangerous, poisonous, horrible creatures and it is up to women to reform them, castigate them, and demonstrate against them.
Basically, what women want is to turn the men into women or “menettes”. Apparently, we need men but only on our terms. They must be more like us.
Is it any wonder that men are subconsciously feeling so set-upon that they are growing beards and getting tattoos? I interpret this desire to grow facial hair as evidence that men need to assert their masculine traits. They are confused about how they should approach women. They don’t want to offend women and heaven help them if they are politically incorrect by opening a door for a woman or paying her a compliment.
Before somebody accuses me of treachery and misogyny regarding my own gender, I categorically declare that I am for equal rights and equal opportunities for both sexes.
I am concerned, however, that so much animosity towards men, is counter-productive.
Not all men are monsters who rape and pillage, so don’t treat them as if they are.
