Zek Evets wonders how women expect men to care about the gender equality movement, whenthey seem unwilling to care about men’s issues.
In the article, Boys And Men Must Be Included In The Conversation On Gender Equality in The Guardian last week, author Andrea Cornwell asserts:
“…it’s not about bringing men in by talking to them nicely and making sure they’re not put off: it’s about naming male privilege, and getting men engaged in holding other men to account.”
It’s about more than that. It’s about closing the cracks so named in the article. You say it’s not women’s job to bring men in and make sure we’re not “put off”. But how do you expect us to care if you don’t care about us? How do you expect to include us in the conversation if you arrive already decided, leaving only the means of our conversion as your intent.
This article is a White Elephant among an endless parade of misandric dismissal. But it stumbles. It fumbles. It contradicts itself in the same paragraph. And that’s okay. Because this is a start, and it’s damn necessary.
