W hen an amateur metal detectorist first heard his machine beep in an unpromising field in Lichfield in July and dug down to uncover goldit was clear this was no ordinary archaeological discovery. But who had collected the astonishing stash of gold, garnet weapons and ornaments he had found?
Centuries of war, pillaging and violence show that manhood is never in crisis, as alarmists like to claim, but it is often at the heart of these phenomena.
M en are pretty terrible people. They commit ificantly more violent crimes, robberies and assaults each year than women do, according to the Department of Justice. They are more likely to show anger in the workplace and be rewarded for it while women are affected negatively for the same behaviors.
I could keep going. This led him to call for a re-education of men.
That is, they need to learn that there is more to women than a reproductive system. It just lets men be more educated about the women they are perpetrating violence against. Until men en masse consider women to be part of the same ecosystem, masculinity will continue to be primarily a rejection of everything feminine, the tool men use to measure and gauge their own self-worth to other men — the foundation of bro culture.
He is correct. We see this violence from the bar fights over small issues to the violence that breaks out on streets when men are denied by women they catcall.
Many times, my reporting has shown, these women are murdered not for being transgender, but because their male lovers fear being found out, fear their masculinity being called into question. All of this was humorously explored in the viral hashtag MasculinitySoFragilewhich through humor showed how men will respond so quickly, even violently, when they feel their manhood is being questioned.
Which seems to happen a lot. Instead of constantly putting manhood under perceived threat, we must rethink the concept entirely, and maybe — to be so daring — throw it out.
Because we have centuries of war, of pillaging, of violence that show us that manhood was never in crisis, but always was central to this mayhem. So we may need to just rebuild everything with the whole concept of manhood excluded.
