The male identified half of the population is not a monolithic entity and to treat it so repeatedly, specifically in this context without any semblance of analysis or insight, reinforces harmful — and demonstrably untrue — stereotypes and perpetuates damaging socialization against which Emma’s work is pushing.
I pointed out the rhetorical trick you used to presume to speak for all men.

I was not making statements about a monolithic entity but a class of people. There are in fact two classes of people, those whom are intimidated by sexually dominant women and those whom are not. Being in the first class I feel I have some authority to speak to my subjective experiences on the matter.

Rhetorical tricks? Ok, my words were poorly put together. I do in fact acknowledge that much. I also acknowledged that some men are also really into sexually dominant women. That is a poor monolith that I am building.

On a final note, I notice that you have a deep need to believe that culture promotes heteronormative roles. Ok, well if you think my rhetoric is antithetical to this notion, perhaps prove how you believe I am wrong. You attack my rhetoric and language instead and state your position as objective truth with no argument to back it up. Not even an attempt.

You think I don’t understand what you are saying. If we talk in circles it is because you are not comprehending me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
