Q:weighing in here, but yeah, masculinity is too often built around violence and i kinda feel that this is something masculine identified folks(myself included) need to continously examine and work to redefine so as not to perpetuate some really harmful dynamics/rhetotics.
yeah, well said, that’s p much my point… the excessive violence and disregard for human emotion is so grating to me. like i believe people can be male/masculine aligned and not buy into that kind of damaging mentality, but i think they definitely need to be very vigilant about it because it’s so prevalent and you can really gain a lot by being compliant to it.
masculinity is so obnoxious, i don’t understand why anyone would willingly align themselves with it, given alternatives
like sorry u picked the most boring and restrictive role imaginable… yikesss
Gender isn’t a choice. Why would you shame someone for their gender?
i’m not shaming anyone for their gender lmao
gender =/= gender performance, I’m talking about masculine gender roles (such as violence, emotional distance and repression etc) not masculine genders thnx
How old is this photo.
Because it’s set up like Grandpappy sitting on the rocker telling the youngin’s about his youth.
But at this point in history it looks like one old guy took the only chair and made the rest of his elderly friends sit on the pavement because he’s the senior senior.

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
