Patriarchy Hurts Men Too!

While it is true the Patriarchy Hurts Men, Too, the fact of the matter is that the problems that men face that don’t stem from class, race, sexuality, or able-bodiedness issues tend to stem from socially ingrained misogyny. It is a systemic devaluation of femininity that creates the rigidly defined masculinity by which men must abide. If men have a problem with masculinity as it currently exists, perhaps they should consider increasing the social status and viability of femininity in all people. They could also address the notion that femininity and masculinity are not mutually exclusive.

Not only does feminism give woman a voice, but it also clears the way for men to free themselves from the stranglehold of traditional masculinity.
