Of the concept of “self-hating” and “self-loathing”, but this guy takes it way too far.
Men are pretty terrible people. They commit significantly more violent crimes, robberies and assaults each year than women do, according to the Department of Justice. They are more likely to show anger in the workplace and be rewarded for it while women are affected negatively for the same behaviors. They even take up too much space on public transportation when “manspreading”. I could keep going.
Men probably dominate all these “terrible” statistics because, now and throughout history, they’ve dominated the world. But that doesn’t give them a pass. They are still to blame even if they don’t know better, and it’s high time their dominant position – their entitled ignorance – was questioned and dismantled.
I’m pretty sure that I know what the ultimate goal here is: For him to impress some 3rd Wave Feminist womyn and get laid.
I’m not worried about some “concept of manhood” ever going away. It is born into the species. It really only turns to evil when it is repressed or otherwise confined.
So to the author of the piece, Zach Stafford, I’ll make an offer: You go ahead and get rid of your manhood first. Let me know how that goes for you.
