SO lets take a look atr the actual problem they are trying to address.
They are trying to counsel men (I assume mostly men) who dont feel they meet the traditional definition of masculine.
And so to do this, they seek to redfine what it means to be masculine, and open it up to more diversity and openness.
The problem is that this is also rentrenching the idea that there is a "correct" way to be masculine.
This is the problem with all of these idneitity politics.
When you seperate the world into groups, and then suggests we need to change the behavior of some groups, you are just maniipulating the definitions,
but not addressing the problem.
If there are any guys out there reading my post (or women or trans etc.) who feel you dont fit into masculine or feminine, let me give you some
Stop trying to fit in to some group!
These hucksters just want to label you and box you in.
You are not the sum of the groups you happen to be (race, sex, age, ect.)
You are an individual who happens to have a race, age etc.
Think of it like this.
Have you ever heard one of those annoying people that ask what you astrological sign is?
"Oh your a leo, that means you are fiery! I wish we could make leos more gentle!"
The answer isnt to change what a "leo" is, its to stop caring or focusing on the fact you are a leo!
The same is true with masculinity, blackness, homosexuality or any of their inverses.
Your a gay black man who is a great athlete? Shes a straight latino woman who is physically disabled?
who cares! lets talk ideas, thoughts; individuality.
