Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College


You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

In other words, if you are a white male, you aren’t allowed to have ambition.

You shouldn’t have hopes or dreams or goals.

You shouldn’t make any effort, because your work won’t count.

You’re never good enough-no matter what- by virtue of  birth.

You never deserve to be a doctor or chemist or teacher or physicist or manager.

No. Bullshit. I want to be equal. I want a fair shot at success. I want to know that if I’m the best person for the job, it IS my job. I want my work and effort to count. I want to be valued for what I do, not devalued for how I was born.

It is not “equality” to deny someone a job or promotion based solely on race and/or gender. Period.

Lmao today in “People who Missed the Point Spectacularly and Even Partially Helped Prove the Point”
