Jim Goad: Reclaiming Toxic Masculinity
Jim Goad writes:
We are told that masculinity has no roots in biology and is merely a social construct. It’s a miracle that all these “social constructs” happened to be constructed almost identically throughout every culture in history. (…)
Modern men must thus stand athwart history and yell SHUT UP! at women. Women are supposed to be miraculous because they can give birth? Female hamsters can do that, but it wasn’t hamsters that invented the internal combustion engine.
