Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.
This is a feminist issue.
And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.
THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.
Also I’d like to add that the standard of masculinity affects everyone because most violent crimes are committed by men (towards everyone!!) because they’ve had this image in their head that a “real man” has to this macho, violent type. The patriarchy is rooted in the standard that men are expected to be powerful.
This is what feminism is about. Equality. Men can stay home and nurture the children just as well as women can. Men can be just as sweet as sensitive as a traditional woman can. American masculinity is just as much of a lose-lose situation as American femininity and it’s just as much of a problem.
