…nism and other like-minded movements telling men — even young boys — that they need to “do better.” The message is that men, as a collective, are responsible for gender pay gaps, rape culture, sexism, misogyny, and the patriarchy. That all men are failing all women — that individual responsibility is a thing of the past, a fallacy, a social taboo.
All white men are to blame for the oppression of women and their fellow races. And if the current/ future generations don’t take responsibility for it, then no one will. And it’ll just keep happening. Additionally, I don’t agree that men or women should have any specific “traits”. We are struggling to create a society that doesn’t put people into boxes depending on behaviors, attitudes, likes or dislikes. People should feel safe in choosing what they want for themselves. So if a male wants to walk around in a dress, more power to them. Terms such as “masculinity” or “too feminine” can only be detrimental to the development of a person, especially their mental health. In short, let people be.
