Look back 60 years into the past, and consider that American culture is no less sexist in our day than it was in the 1950’s. Sexism today has merely taken on an ugly new form.
I hazard a guess what the American Psychological Association would say, given their recent release of guidelines concerning ‘traditional masculinity.’
They would probably say my fruitless pursuit of these things out of a desire to be accepted by society as manly is ‘toxic’ and unproductive.
What then should I do?
