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!

It was hailed as the dawn of the ‘Web 2.0’ era.  The internet was (again) regarded as humankind’s most significant bastion of free speech and personal expression.   What is it becoming?  An angry mob of hyper-sensitive, overreactive twitterites who seem hell-bent on breathing new life into the once-distasteful cause known as “political correctness.”

Perhaps the reason why the NSA and other government agencies have gotten away with such blatant invasions of our privacy is because a large percentage of americans have no regard for privacy at all – their own or anyone else’s.  What this means is that if some damning piece of personal information about you should get out, even if what you did is perfectly legal, it is your fellow citizens that you should fear – not just the government.  Case in point: Brendan Eich and his short-lived tenure as CEO of Mozilla Corporation.
