I’ve seen this question pop up once or twice on Xanga recently. The question is, what becomes of men in the modern feminist world?
Times are changing quickly. Technology has enabled us to live lives that humanity has never before been able to do. We come into a new world where women are gaining power and influence. Meanwhile the male stereotype is being thrown under the bus as females embrace aggressive professional roles and sexual desires. Unfavorable traits of masculinity are being weeded out. Such as being an overly agressive dick and acting emotionless.
Nothing has changed yet. But it’s moving in that direction. If anything, men are being pushed further into a smaller and smaller corner with less options.
Pop culture (aside from the gay movement) is still promoting polarity in gender roles. But eventually this must break. Eventually men are going to need to snap out of the boundaries of polar male/female society and females as well will need to accept the new redesigned men.
So what is the redesigned man like?
He is a gender neutral figure who does not conform to the old ways of society. He is capable of openly displaying emotion, even if psychologically he is more limited than females. He is a father that listens to his children and may even be a stay at home dad. He has the same custody rights to his children as their mother has in the eyes of the court. His outward appearance is given the same level of care as his female counterparts. He is not confined to only pants and t-shirts but openly wears skirts, make-up and grooms unwanted body hair.
There is no reason any longer for gender polarity to exist in our society.
Physically males and females are different, but as women and men’s rights collide into perfect equality, there will be no reason for society to treat them differently in any way.
Gone will be separate restrooms and clothing sections in stores. All that will remain polar will be medicines that relate to their sex and the terms him and her. Although eventually such terms may become irrelevant themselves.
