The ratio of males to females in my “Masculinity and Femininity” course remains only 1 to 5, despite the fact that the course gives equal attention to each gender. Males encouraged to enroll often respond, “I don’t need another semester of male-bashing.” … These students, like most other American males, usually know about only one side of feminism, the social-political side.
They know feminism raises fundamental social and political questions, questions about justice and equality and power for women—which necessarily involve criticism of male dominance, of male attitudes, of men. … Yet for the most part they—again, in company with most males, have not yet begun to hear the second set of questions posed by feminism, the personal-psychological-spiritual ones that call for an honest probing of men’s needs and aspirations, as well as women’s, and imply empathy and compassion for both.
Some of these questions are: Why do you define manhood as being tough, in control, in charge, superior to what is non-male, detached—even from your own feelings? If that’s what it means, do you really want to be a man?"
