5 Stupid, Unfair and Sexist Things Expected of Men - "I care about this stuff for a lot of reasons. I care because I have men and boys in my life, men and boys who matter to me: I see how they get twisted into knots by gender roles that are not only insanely rigid but impossibly contradictory, and it makes me sick and sad and seriously pissed off. I care because I care about justice: fair is fair, and I don't want to solve the problem of gender inequality by making things suck worse for men."
"The thing is, it's patriarchy that says men are stupid and monolithic and unchanging and incapable, It's patriarchy that says men have animalistic instincts and just can't stop themselbvs from harassing and assaulting. It's patriarchy that says men can only be attracted by certain qualities, can only have particular kinds of responses, can only experience the world in narrow ways. Feminism holds that men are capable of more - are more than that."
