    Also, I`ve been saying this for a while. Just because it`s marketed to men doesn`t mean it`s manly. Take shower gel, for instance. Old Spice makes it, and markets it to us. Not manly. If you don`t agree with the fact that marketing to men doesn`t make it manly, then defend, if you can, the mankini, or mantyhose.

    I totally agree with almost everything this guy said. I had a good role model to work from so I feel I have a pretty solid idea about what is expected of me as a man in society. It`s not about machismo, or chauvinism, it`s about self sacrifice. This is what is expected of men and has been since we climbed out of trees. Whether it`s fending off a pack of wild dogs with a spear or working twelve hour days in a salt mine. You have to live to serve.

    I bet this is the same guy that made the video, showing how to make a speaker with tin foil and a penny. ;)

    Anyway, yes there was "reverse discrimination". When woman`s rights kicked in, the "discrimination pendulum" swung all the way to the other side and men were made out to be evil and stupid. Then it swung back and women were "Hos" meant to be used. Then it swung back again. Back and forth. Each time, the swing getting a little less drastic. That`s how it works.

    Do you know what makes a "Real" man. Be strong and independent; yes. But treat others with respect. Always take the high road. Never kick a man when he is down. NEVER hit a woman. Be open minded and willing to adapt. Take others feelings into consideration.

    Morally, be the best person you can be. That`s what makes a "real man".

    Wow somebody is insecure (and somewhat inarticulate). What was he even trying to say? As far as I could tell, to him "manliness" is about wearing a wool suit and getting your hair cut at a barber shop. That`s all it amounts to? Metrosexuals aren`t men because they wax? And I`m pretty sure emulating the men in Mad Men, while discouraging sexism, is contradictory. (It`s a good show, but come on).

    "Manliness" is whatever you want it to be- work hard, play hard, wax or don`t.

    This guy is a tool.

    This guy is such an idiot. He is defining manliness as wearing suits, having body hair, and going to barber shops. Those are three of the most superficial, trend driven, definitions of "manliness" ever. And how exactly did feminism destroy manliness, he somehow failed to explain that.

    And patchouly, please tell me when this magical time was when women where in power and no longer being discriminated against. I must have missed it. Or that time when men where being paid lower wages then women. Or that time period when women where no longer being raped?

    I must have missed that last pendulum swing.

    I`m all for it, but we definitely need a better spokesperson... One of the biggest problems with America today is the "Absent Dad." We should be teaching our children about honor, integrity, dignity, and respect. There`s too much emphasis on the materialistic and superficial. There`s a book called "Iron John: A Book about Men." It changed my life.

    This is BS. The old days were not better than today. True that families could get by on one salary. But women and black Americans suffered in a racist, sexist world of second class citizenry. The people who reminisce of the olden days as if they were some some mythical wonderland are typically white and naturally self centered.

    Do you know what makes a "Real" man.

    Be male and physically mature, i.e. an adult in biological terms.

    Everything else, and I mean *everything* else, is an add-on that doesn`t really have anything to do with being a real man. Some of them are secondary biological characteristics connected to being a man, but even those are strongly affected by social norms. Body hair, for example.

    Almost all of it is purely social. Clothing, for example. What`s special about a suit? It`s simply an item of clothing considered to be masculine in some societies some period of time ago. Whoopie-do. May as well wear a miniskirt-length simple dress. That was considered very masculine clothing over a wide area for a longer period of time.

    No, I`m not joking about that. It (the tunica) was the standard item of clothing for men in the Roman republic and empire and was seen as very manly.

    Clarification: The tunica was standard clothing for both sexes, but the custom (and customs regarding clothing were very strong in Rome because clothing was a statement of social and legal status) was that men wore it short and women wore it long. Certainly above the knee for men.

    Well sexual equality doesn`t exist, so feminists are working to make women equal. Generally they`re for total equality, not just taking over the men`s role and creating a matriarchy, since that would be about as crappy as patriarchy is now. You`re assuming feminism is all about reversing roles, and it`s not. Maybe some wackjobs have accosted you and given you this impression of feminism, but that`s too bad because that`s not what it is.

    No, misandry and gender equality are mutually exclusive and fundamentally in opposition.

    Feminism, however, only strives to make females equal in legal, political, social, and other matters, to males.

    Many misandrists DO hide behind the label of "feminism" when all they really want to do is dominate men, but real feminism is entirely about equality.

    No it isn`t. It`s about female people. That`s why it`s called `feminism` and that`s why it is always about female people. That`s what it`s for - it`s a biological group advocacy ideology.

    In order to do that, you must as a first step define (and therefore judge) people on their sex. You can`t be about female people unless you start by defining people on the basis of whether or not they are female.

    Feminism isn`t necessarily misandrist, but it is necessarily sexist.

    Feminism also includes any and every degree of antimale sexism, right up to and including bona fide misandry. That would not be possible if feminism was about sexual equality. Which it isn`t.

    Well sexual equality doesn`t exist, so feminists are working to make women equal.

    Wrong and you`re showing a fundamental misunderstanding of what sexual equality is.

    Generally they`re for total equality

    Wrong. They`re for more for female people.

    You`re assuming feminism is all about reversing roles

    Wrong.

    Maybe some wackjobs have accosted you and given you this impression of feminism

    Or maybe it was the years of being a feminist, the millions of words of feminist material I`ve read and the hundreds of feminists I`ve listened to, agreed with and argued with.

    You`re spindoctoring. Maybe you`ve fallen for the ridiculous lie that feminism is about sexual equality, maybe you`re knowingly spreading false propaganda. There`s no way for me to know which.

    I can`t really fault anyone for falling for the lie. After all, I did. It`s a very successful

    If you really wanted to celebrate differences, you wouldn`t be in favour of sexed roles and stereotypes. You`re actually arguing *against* difference because you`re applying the idea of difference to sexes rather than individuals. That requires all men to be pretty much the same and all women to be pretty much the same, in order to maintain the differences that you want.

    "No it isn`t. It`s about female people. That`s why it`s called `feminism` and that`s why it is always about female people."

    Yeah, because the male people oppress the female people. Hence the need for female people standing up for themselves.

    "Men and women are different, Trying to make them equal is futile. Celebrate our differences and get along with one another in genuine non-threatening ways."

    So you`re okay with women making 70 cents on the dollar because they don`t have penises? That`s what this is about- being treated as less because they are women. That`s threatening.

    "Everything Angilion has ever said"

    Wrong. You are blatantly spreading lies, or are a complete ignoramus, I cannot pretend to know which.

    also, the slaves were freed long before the civil rights movement. so, next time you want to be a smartass, try being smart first.

    I thought you`d do a better job of lying about your true position, Boadicea.

    Instead, almost straight away, you let slip the fact that you think all male people are oppressors. That makes your extreme sexism very clear and it also makes a mockery of your claim to favour sexual equality. You regard male people as oppressors, not as equals.

    Using the thoroughly debunked lie about pay would usually be a big deal, but in comparison with that it`s trivial.

    I think this supposed reversion back to "old ways" of masculinity supposes that all men today are "soft" somehow. I dislike that there is some sort of inherent definition of masculinity; it`s the same as drawing standards of femininity. It`s just as unfair to men to try and move an entire gender back in time. And just because they supposedly will leave behind sexism, homophobia and racism doesn`t mean this regression is healthy.

    This kind of old-guard manliness is the stuff of guys not going to doctors, not seeking therapy, and repressing their feelings for fear of being seen as a "manboy", "dumb dad," or "metrosexual."

    I don`t understand why we need any archetypes on which we should base our identities; neither men nor women.

    And why exactly is going back in time a good idea? Shouldn`t we be looking forward to a better future?

    "Breastfeeding is not a right, it`s a biological ability- why that should determine rights between people is ridiculous."

    That is exactly the point I was trying to make (glad you caught on :D )

    People should have equal opportunity regardless of gender, race, or otherwise, but lets face it people there are going to be physical differences that all of the good intentions and "feminism" aren`t going to do away with and that`s just the way it is.

    My biggest problem with any sort of advocacy group is not that they try to help the underdog but that they tend to emphasize the inequality they are trying to do away with and subsequently perpetuate it. "Feminism" should not be about women exclusively, but it should be about both sides of the gender equation and trying to level out the disparity between them. Of course, calling it after either sex is off to a bad start then...

    If anyone else cares, I`ll explain why your statement is rubbish that has been debunked repeatedly. There`s no point explaining it to you - you have made yourself unthinking. It`s an article of faith to you, despite being ridiculous and proven wrong.

    And Angilion, you are the most full-of-yourself troll I`ve ever come across. You think only you are right, and anybody who disagrees is lying or pushing some sort of crazy agenda. If you were less of a freak, you`d be bearable. But you are so far up your own ass it`s ridiculous.

    Obviously, it really bothers you that you can`t come up with a counter-argument to anything I`ve written.

    I`m not going to waste my time trying to convert you to supporting sexual equality and you have no chance of converting me back to supporting sexism and hypocrisy (i.e. feminism). But hey, maybe arguing with each other might entertain some people and thus serve the purpose of this site. I`m just not that bored at the moment.

    I`m all for equal rights between the sexes! That`s why I`ll be the one breastfeeding my children (after I give birth to them from my penis of course)

    I`ll bite - what do you think that has to do with rights? Are you arguing that people who breastfeed should have more rights? Less rights? Either way, why do you think that?

    boadicea, all your graphs show is that men must be better workers than women.

    From an employer`s point of view, that is the *tendency* the graphs show. It`s a reflection of men tending to work longer hours and devote more of their life to work.

    The biggest factor in the average difference in pay is the number of hours worked, both directly (work more hours, get more pay) and cumulatively (work more hours, more likely to get promoted).

    Making mothers and fathers equal parents would remove most of the difference, but that would require a radical change in society including the removal of feminism (which of course opposes the idea because it would require mothers losing their preferential status over fathers).

    Anyone who doesn`t believe me should look at pay comparisons between childless men and childless women and then overall. See the difference?

    Niceguy: No freaking way...with all due respect I feel as if I need more evidence. It`s an intriguing story, but I have doubts.

    Men breastfeeding? Why do you consider it so implausible? Men and women are not as different as we`re all conditioned to think and the basic equipment is in place.

    It`s not common, that`s for sure, but there are documented examples and not just as a result of abnormal hormone levels caused by something being wrong.

    Well, Ang the part of the article where they state that he willed himself to lactate and then willed the lactation to stop is difficult for me to imagine. Has he done any other willpower experiments that have had the same positive result? Does he have mental focus that is a little stronger than average?

    It`s not just one man. Documented examples go back to the 19th century.

    Nobody disputes that various pathologies can result in a man lactating. Starvation, for example. That proves that the basic capability is there.

    The question is whether or not a man without any of those pathologies can lactate. The key issue is the level of prolactin. Men produce it, just not usually in large enough amounts to enable lactation. Under some circumstances, men can produce enough. Is the will to do so combined with the feedback of suckling enough to do it? Maybe.

    God bless the The Mennansaince.

    I need a real man! One who can stand up for himself, have basic auto/household repair knowledge, and doesn`t make me feel like I am raising another 15 yr old girl.

    Oh, and if he ever wills himself to lactate, that`s gonna be a deal-breaker.
