The War on Masculinity is Real

It is not a great time to be a man in the First World.  We’re told that we are bad.  Why are we bad?  Because we are patriarchal, hierarchical, and stronger physically than most of our female counterparts.  Apart from that fact that we are the ones who are shipped off (historically speaking) to die in wars, we are blamed for all the wars.  We created the philosophies of liberty, capitalism and tolerance that sparked the flame of the western world.

Enter: Postmodernism: everything must be equal!  If all jobs across all job categories do not show 50/50 distribution between males and females, then something must have gone wrong, and that something must be (you guessed it), SEXISM! GLASS CEILING! PATRIARCHY!
