Comment on The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty-First Century With Jack Myers by Matt Paine http://jenniferbrownspeaks.com/2017/03/24/the-future-of-men-masculinity-twenty-first-century-jack-myers/#comment-9 Tue, 28 Mar 2017 22:51:05 +0000 http://jenniferbrownspeaks.com/?p=434#comment-9 The article is interesting. I have 6 children, 4 girls and 2 boys. I see more opportunity for my daughters than I do for my sons simply because they are male. I do not buy the “old boys club” being asserted here because that was not open to just any male. You had to be from a certain family and a certain class of people and it was open to females as well. The thing that I see is that women are organized and have a movement that promotes them at all costs. Men have no such a movement. You also have a liberal press, politicians and a school system that promote left wing idiology. It is no wonder that males are having a hard time. My wife finds the womens movement alarming because of the harm to our sons and to positive male role models. Mnen are supposed to be providers and such but there is nothing that says that they cannot be sensitive and decent as well. I am 58 years old and have never fit the model you described for anyone over 30. I have reinvented and adapted myself many times to stay viable in the business world. If you were to meet me you would swear I was 35-40 years old. I look like Captain America quite literally even working out 6 times a week. At 6’2″ 200 lbs 48 jacket and 38 waist, I am different than anyone you would ever meet. And by the way I am far more technically savy than any of the younger people because of my computer and engineering background. I could write the text book on the subject matter in fact. I have many young people and females as friends. I am not sure what paradigm you are looking at but there are many males similar to me out there in my age group. However, if you look at uneducated men, the role model and the stereotype is horrific mainly because you have to be a caveman to survive in that world. The technology is pushing us in that direction more than anything else. Economic background also impacts this with kids having more free time and the predominance of video games. Those that are poor do not have the same opportunities. The key is education and having an organized movement that promotes educated men in all walks of life that should even out the playing fields. Unfortunately, just like men, most women do not make good management. That requires a special type of person regardless of gender. The role models for men need to be educated, athletic, sensitive, and decent. find a group of those men, organize them into a movement with equal footing as the women and look out!
