Feminism is the problem because it has attatched a negative stigma to anything not 100% masculine, really.

#403 - Shiny (10/12/2015) [-]
The problem is, what defines masculinity and femininity in a society that is no longer dictated by baser instinct? If different people are making radically different assumptions about how society works, i.e. whether masculinity or femininity is rampant, all that tells me is that their claims speak more about them than society.
#331 - anon (10/12/2015) [-]
I think you're real close to the answer but you're missing it by just a little.

Masculinity is a natural thing for men. It is essentially what makes men, men. It honestly should come as no surprise that men want to act like men.

If the issue was that men were being forced into being masculine, we would have had these problems in the past. But we don't; they seem to be getting worse quite recently.

And to be blunt, society has become far more feminized in recent years. Men are told to not be what they're inclined to be naturally from as early as grade school. They're taught to not be what their biology urges them to be.

It creates the sense that there's something wrong with you. That you're defective by nature.

And what you describe might actually come into play here: Boys are raised to suppress the more masculine of their characteristics, but then they're still expected to have them when it's convenient.

In short, it's an identity crisis, and we could solve most of it if we just "let boys be boys".

I think anybody can seriously hold their own if called out for liking something. I feel like I can appreciate just about anything but I certainly don't try to. If any adult made any sort of negative comment about my hobbies I think I would just give them a puzzled look and ask them if they were serious. Then, when they realise they have done something that only a 6th grader would do, I'd maybe stop talking that weird weird person. Why would I be having a conversation with somebody that openly mocks my hobbies? It's ok to dislike them but fucking hell who has actually had to defend themselves like this?

Fucking hell though. I'm a sissy little buttslut and I'm still one of the strongest in my group of friends and at scouts. I'm the one that carries the heavy shit, I'm the one they turn to to cut firewood. Masculinity is easy to conform to. All you have to do is lift and beat yourself up inside to the point where you have almost complete control over your emotions. Totally not psychologically damaging or anything.

First of all, sorry for the rant, halfway through I thought "maybe it isn't worth it", but then I was already to far along".

Not going to thumb you down, but there is a lot more to masculinity than what you mentioned, and almost noone is pressured into masculinity in the western world, femininity is widely preferred. Masculinity is being competetive, and we move more an more in the "noone is keeping score, everybody gets a participation trophy!". Maculinity is being direct, and we are more and more pushed in the direction of "consider everyone's feelings before you talk" and having to sugarcoat everything. And god forbid some boys fight, then it's suspension for both not saying fighting should be encouraged, but unless it's very serious a rough talk, detention or a phone home is all that is needed

Because whatever feminists say, gender roles are largely biological or so ingrained socially that despite noone teaching them away (like in my school, noone did say "this is how boys are, this is how girls are") people still subconsciously learn them, and at that point I don't really think you can blame "gender roles" , you mostly mentiioned interests, but that's almost none of it. If a guys owns liking dance or romance films, then people will respect him for it, sure he will be ripped on by his friends, but no more than any other interest that isn't "mainstream" in that friend group. And likewise, noone cares if a girl likes motorcycles or action films, but can you I'm assuming you are a straight male, since it's the norm in here honestly say it wouldn't be turned off by a girl who sits "manspreading" on the couch while drinking beer, farting and telling crude jokes and generally acting "man-like"? now, I'm not saying any of those things are wrong, and I'm not saying a single of those things would kill my attraction to a woman, but all together... .

Now on to the problem with male suicide, I think the problems stem from boys being from they're little encouraged to act feminine, and when they do that in the real world, people are disgusted by them, they get nowhere. And what they've been told their whole life, "you are fine just the way you are" no longer holds up, they get depressed, and they don't know what to do, they lose purpose. And when they express doubt with what they've learned they either get reinforcement on what they've been told, or they're being ridiculed for actually believing that. And that's how suicides or school shootings happens. But that's just what I think but it's interesting that it's almost exclusively males who do it.

Being direct and striving to be better than people who don't try are just positive traits, not masculine. By this reasoning, women who are good people are basically defective.

I mean really, women can be just as cruel, uncaring and manipulative as men, and when kids shoot up schools, nobody gave two shits about their personal problems just before. Mental health has nothing to do with your chromosomes.
User avatar
#407 - choobe (10/12/2015) [-]
First of all; no, it's not "just" positive traits, they aren't even universally positive traits. Second of all I wasn't talking about just "trying to be better than people who don't try", but trying to be the best. Testosterone is a big contributor to how competetive you are, and males have much more testosterone than females, so males are more competetive, generally. In fact it's so much that two people trying to one-up each other is called a "dick measuring contest", and while women can and will occationally also engage in it, it's a much bigger part of a mans life.

Thirdly; being direct. This is so much "Not-a-female-trait" that there are stereotypes built around it, the silent treatment for example? Or backhanded complimens and other tactics girls use when they fight inbetween themselves to try to put down the other part. Girls are also much more likely to consider someone's feelings before they talk, and try to not hurt them. And while that's nice, it is not being direct. And while not all women are like that, it is mostly women who are like that.

Also; no person is built on just masculine or just feminine traits, and exhibiting some traits "classically" assosiated with the other gender is not "wrong" or being defective: And there are a lot of feminine traits that also are assosiated with being a good person, being nurturing for example.

And I didn't say that women can't be as cruel and manipulative as men, some of them are even a great deal better at it than most men. And finally; when it comes to mental health, there are four alternatives:
A: Mental health is a bigger problem in males.
B: We are better at picking up mental problems in females.
C: Females have different and less violent mental problems.
D: Mental problems are latent at the same rate in both genders, but society breaks males in greater numbers.

"...and other tactics girls use when they fight inbetween themselves to try to put down the other part."
Is this not also part of a competitive mentality?
"Girls are also much more likely to consider someone's feelings before they talk, and try to not hurt them. And while that's nice, it is not being direct."
Problem solving is always being direct. Considering emotional bias or influence is only not being direct when it is in attempt to avoid the problem, not get closer to it.
"Also; no person is built on just masculine or just feminine traits, and exhibiting some traits "classically" assosiated with the other gender is not "wrong" or being defective: And there are a lot of feminine traits that also are assosiated with being a good person, being nurturing for example."
How is the desire to provide for your family and teach your children to be strong not a nurturing one? The stereotype that men aren't nurturing is the entire reason women have an extreme advantage in child custody!
This same site harps on eternally about how bigoted and stupid it is to assume men are all more aggressive by nature. Jesus.
"Mental health is a bigger problem in males." "Mental problems are latent at the same rate in both genders"

1. "and while women can and will occationally also engage in it, it's a much bigger part of a mans life. ..."
2. Maybe, but problem solving isn't the only way to be direct. But maybe males are more "Problem solving oriented" in general? Not saying it definitely is like that, but it would explain why when girls vent about problems they really just want to get it out, while males go into "problem solving mode" and offer up solutions to everything.
3. Look, we can argue semantics all day long, I assume you know what I meant? As a very crude/simplified example:
"Mom, I got a boo-boo!", "There there honey, mommy will kiss it better" <-- feminine/nurturing
"Dad, I got a boo-boo!" "It's just a scratch, go play" <-- masculine/teaching
And I don't say that males aren't nurturing, I'm saying it's a feminine trait. Also I don't presume to speak for the whole of FunnyJunk, so you'll have to take that debate with someone else, but if it helps I have never heard anyone say the presumption is stupid in itself, just that it's stupid to assume that women are better parents by default.
4. Well, what other alternative is there that explains why males shoot up schools and commit suicide at much bigger rates than females?
User avatar
#412 - Shiny (10/12/2015) [-]
First point is special pleading. You can't make generalizations about whole groups of people if they aren't certain, i.e. the vast majority of females have estrogen.
"Maybe, but problem solving isn't the only way to be direct."
Doesn't need to be. That is my point, that masculinity doesn't mean being direct, being direct means being direct.
"Look, we can argue semantics all day long, I assume you know what I meant?"
I do, but masculinity and femininity are about what and why people do things more than how they do things. Teaching, for example, is a part of nurturing, because it's meant to help someone grow as a person.
And how people are treated regarding gender has far more to do with them than who is doing the treating, largely due to cognitive bias. This isn't necessarily bad, obviously, but still.
"Well, what other alternative is there that explains why males shoot up schools and commit suicide at much bigger rates than females?"
Because they're told to shut up and not have feelings, because men are masculine.
Third-wave feminists don't want to eliminate gender difference, they want to exacerbate it as much as possible. They aren't misguided, they're lying.
User avatar
#415 - choobe (10/12/2015) [-]
First point: Testosterone is linked to competetiveness, not saying it's the only contributor, but it's one of the the biggest. Are you denying this? Or are you saying it's special pleading to say that males have in general much higher testosterone levels, since I can't say that there doesn't exist females with higher testosterone levels than some men?

Can you elaborate on this "directness" point? My position is directness is something that's seen much more in males, therefore it is a masculine trait, and the opposite (indirectness) is seen much more in femlaes, therefore it is a feminine trait.

Okay, maybe teaching is a nurturing trait, but in that case it was my use of the word "nurturing" that was imprecise for my point. Teaching compassion and empathy would be feminine, while teaching a skill would be masculine. In my eyes.

I don't think boys are told to not have feelings in today's society, it would be a scandal if an authority figure said that. And besides, even if boys are told that, I bet it was teached away with much bigger intensity back in the days, but there were fewer school shootings and mass killings then.

And I think feminists want all male privileges without the male responsibilies that follow , without giving up their female ones.
User avatar
#416 - Shiny (10/12/2015) [-]
If women can be masculine and men can be feminine, them masculinity isn't male and vice versa. It's a personality trait. The problem here is the fundamental attribution error: people are sapient, autonomous beings that can choose what they do, regardless of genetic predisposition.

"I don't think boys are told to not have feelings in today's society, it would be a scandal if an authority figure said that."
"And besides, even if boys are told that, I bet it was teached away with much bigger intensity back in the days, but there were fewer school shootings and mass killings then."
There were also less people. Times change.

Not an authority figure, their parents.

#418 - choobe (10/12/2015) [-]
Ooooh, okay, got you. I agree.

But I still don't think the problem is that boys are told not to have feelings, it would have been a bigger problem earlier if that was it. I think it comes from boys being raised like girls, and being compared to the "female ideal".

Whether you like it or not, it is necessary. Women aren't attracted, in general, to feminine men (case study: Japan). They are attracted to strong men, physically and mentally. The aspects of masculinity exist today because female biology find them attractive, because they are necessary. Somebody needs to be strong, somebody needs to lead, somebody needs to build homes and catch the families food. That is the role of men biologically. The reason femininity and masculinity, these mostly opposing concepts exist, is because the two sides of the coin are necessary and favourable for survival, as dictated by evolution. That is why men, in general are physically stronger than women.

And being masculine is not easy. It requires you to work hard, be tough, be brave, be bold, be confident, be strong and be decisive. In general, being feminine is much easier. That is why our society punishes men for not being masculine, it's because they aren't taking up the job that our evolution dictated as necessary, it "hurts the tribe" (and you will notice that often the same is true for females that aren't feminine). So yes, society COULD stop forcing masculinity upon men. Then what would happen? We would have a society of feminised men that women do not want to date, whom women are not attracted to, who don't take on the tough roles that are necessary for our continuation as a society and species. Then you get a demographic crisis and society starts to fall apart. Watch Japan and South Korea because this is exactly what is happening in those places, and has started happening in Europe.

Literally every de jure disadvantage men have in society is based on the idea that men are inherently stronger, more aggressive and more dangerous than women, but this is somehow the fault of the feminazis (or Jews judging by your pic, lel)?

You're getting what you want and complaining about it. That's not just hypocrisy, that's doublethink.

"Women aren't attracted, in general, to feminine men"
Odd, because most of the women I've known says they like a guy who's "in touch with his feminine side."

And I'm pretty sure our society has advanced to the point where we don't need every single man to be a strong leader figure. Like I said, if being masculine and fulfilling those roles is what you want or what you enjoy that's fine. I'm not saying we should get rid of all masculinity, or that no men should be masculine. I'm saying men should be free to express themselves or be their own person without fear of being shamed and ridiculed because they aren't masculine.
#333 - anon (10/12/2015) [-]
If that's what women really wanted, they'd date women.

But they don't, because they don't.

If you don't want to be "manly" or whatever, that's all fine and good. . But I'd just think about if that's how you actually feel or if that's what you've been conditioned into
#284 - genasi (10/12/2015) [-]
Sure they like those guys, which is why they enjoy hanging out with their bestest hipster friend, talking about their feelings and stuff. And then their square-jawed hunk of a boyfriend arrives on his motorcycle to pick them up. That's just how things are. No matter how advanced our society becomes, it won't erase those parts of the female DNA that makes them feel all tingly inside when motorcycle dude arrives and silently waits for her to hop on his bike while staring stoically into the sunset.


also, basically everything kristovsky said
User avatar
#28 - kristovsky (10/11/2015) [-]
"In touch with his feminine side" is women code for a guy that will sit and listen to them talk about their feelings.

And if you think any society is better than 600 million years of evolution then not only are you foolish, but you are also arrogant. Every action we do as humans comes as a result of our instincts, whether consciously or subconsciously. That means that our societies are dictated largely by these same instincts. No, we don't "need" every man to be the epitome masculinity, that won't happen anyway. The point is that men strive to be that, even if they know they will never achieve it. Desiring to better one's self is also a masculine trait, and it's what keep us moving forward technologically, culturally and politically. In other words, a less masculine society is one which slows down. Like I said, both femininity and masculinity are needed, but when one gets heavily skewed in favour of the model breaks down. And this is exactly what you propose, unless you also want women to be less feminine, in which case we will have a society of clone like people where females are indistinguishable from males.

Now, I'm a liberal, and I believe that people should be able to do what they want. However, don't be silly and try to think there will ever be a utopia. When societies get less masculine and become feminised, which is what you are proposing don't deny it, they become weaker. Look at Rome, once they stopped fighting their own wars and filled their legions with mercenaries because they wanted the easy life, the mercenaries sacked Rome and destroyed their empire, along with barbarians that the Romans also couldn't stomach fighting because they had become soft. Look at Sweden and how feminised men are there, why do you think every Swede girl is looking to immigrants for babies? It's because Swedish men are viewed as timid and weak.

Ultimately the more feminine men get left behind anyway, male feminists sure don't get any loyalty from their girlfriends.
#21 - drewjitsu (10/11/2015) [-]
Or maybe its the folks expecting too much from others or the folks who want someone to be something they aren't. It isn't about masculinity, but expecting someone to compromise their own identity to appease. I'm a guy, but masculinity was never reinforced nor discouraged. Yet, I've still had some impulses that I'm glad I didn't act on because I'm bi-polar. Blaming masculinity may as well be ignoring the issue.

Aside from that, the only way to "fix" this "issue" is for future generations not to push their children into things that put undue duress on the child. Gay children with parents who "don't agree" with homosexuality (quotes because that's a fucking stupid statement, there's nothing to agree with). Children being pressured into sports instead of arts or arts instead of sports; a child pressured into assuming his "duties" at the family business, where he'll rot for all eternity because the family wants it; a child who needs mental help with parents who believe psychology is voodoo.

If our education system were adequate, we'd be a more tolerant bunch. Understanding goes a long ways in resolving conflict. Blaming masculinity, however, is like blaming a common cold on the headache it gives you. No, headache is part of the cold...its like blaming the water you drank to take the pill for the headache from the cold.
