"Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters."
"A woman simply is, but a man must become. Masculinity is risky and elusive. It is achieved by a revolt from woman, and it is confirmed only by other men."
"American feminism has a man problem. The beaming Betty Crockers, hangdog dowdies, and parochial prudes who call themselves feminists want men to be like women. They fear and despise the masculine. The academic feminists think their nerdy bookworm husbands are the ideal model of human manhood."
"Modern liberalism suffers unresolved contradictions. It exalts individualism and freedom and, on its radical wing, condemns social orders as oppressive. On the other hand, it expects government to provide materially for all, a feat manageable only by an expansion of authority and a swollen bureaucracy. In other words, liberalism defines government as tyrant father but demands it behave as nurturant mother."
– Camille Paglia
Publisher's Note: I think Paglia may be one of the most original thinkers on sex in out time.
The trans- phenomenon has gained plenty of traction in popular media and academia for a variety of reasons, the victimhood card is, of course, de jure and de facto, putting it at the front of the line. The other reason (among many, all root cause analysis discovers many vectors) is yet another assault on masculinity, no matter the destination of the gender dysmorphia even a transition to "male"; the feminine is always superior to the masculine.
