Jason Thibeault at Lousy Canuck has an excellent post on his blog: The Disadvantages of Being a Man. In it, he talks about many of the specific, practical ways that rigid gender expectations hurt men… including many of the issues that the “men’s rights activist” movement focuses on, such as child custody and the expectation that men be cannon fodder. And he does it from a thoroughly feminist, egalitarian, anti-patriarchal perspective, acknowledging that while rigid gender expectations do hurt both men and women, they overwhelmingly hurt women more, and they’re best dealt with, not by women and men treating one another as enemies, but by women and men joining together to take these expectations down. Thus making it clear that you can take these issues seriously without being a hateful, venomous, misogynist. Job well done. Check it out.
