How Femminism Has Helped Men

here are a few reasons and programs for men ...

The definition of manly was forced on many men just as the definition of ladylike was forced on women. Men were expected to be strong and silent, the common scolding of “boys don't cry” can be just as damaging as “girls are weak” Feminism has helped blur the lines between the masculine and the feminine, allowing men to have feminine qualities, and furthering fluidity of identity. While there are many men who identify with the “manly man” prototype, there are many men who don't. Masculinity now doesn't require a penis and femininity doesn't require breasts and a womb.

It is more important to judge a person’s skills by a person-to-person basis. gendor should not be tor when hiring for a job in any field. Equality means equal opportunity, not monotony.

Another example is paternity. Before, only women could get time off from work after having kids. Now, men can, too. In some countries (and companies), it is even paid for (but payment is not mandatory in the US, because we suck when it comes to maternity/paternity rights).

It used to be, "Don't worry - if you get pregnant I'll look after you
and the child". Now it's just as likely to be, "Don't worry, if you
get pregnant I'll look after the child while you continue your career
and look after us"!

Many of the early feminists fought for contraception to be made
more freely available and so now a couple can decide together
when they want to have children or they can choose not to. My
father was banished to the waiting room when I was born but now
a man can be fully involved in his partner's pregnancy and in
the birth and care of his child. Changes in attitudes to women
and to the process of birth itself have allowed greater freedom
here and men have benefited too.


Finally, even if you’re a more traditional guy who wants his wife to stay at home, and have dinner on the table when you get there, you can still have that. It’s just with feminism, you’ll be able to find a woman who actually wants to do it, instead of one who resentfully does so because she wasn’t allowed to be an astro


Did you know that the minimum wage for men was originally set with reference to the fact that he was expected to support a wife and three children? That sounds like a lot of responsibility and stress. With equal pay resulting from feminism, your partner can support herself, and together you could have six children, or, more likely, buy a plasma screen!
