I was reading the morning news feed today, and I came across a couple of articles about the #MeToo movement and "Toxic Masculinity". There have been a number of research projects by sociologists and psychologists designed to study what it is like to be a man. Specifically, what it is like to be a man in 2017-2018. It turns out that many men have the same insecurities, needs and desires as women do, which has surprised a number of researchers. I understand the science behind this, but I cannot truly understand what it is like to be a man in this day and age because I can't walk a mile in his shoes. Many men are feeling attacked by the #MeToo movement, which just adds to their newly discovered insecurities. Others are actively fighting against it. Still others don't care. I, myself, disagree with some of the movement as it denies men due process once accused. I firmly believe in the presumption of innocence, and you just can't get that when you are accused of sexual impropriety on Facebook. So I'm linking a couple of articles on the subject which I read today. I invite you to read and comment. What I would really like to get out of this thread is a better understanding of what men experience in today's society, but I would also like to see some honest reaction from both men and women to the #MeToo movement. Here are the two articles. They are short reads: http://www.chatelaine.com/living/toxic-masculinity-essay/ https://www.msn.com/en-ca/lifestyle...eel-“nothing”/ar-BBJI8Fa?li=AAggxAX&ocid=iehp And please remember that this is an RD thread.
