I think that the root of masculinism
is a direct assault on feminism.
was initiated by men who felt that they
were as limited by society and needed a
movement to compensate for that. It was saying that men are as vulnerable as
women. I don't think there is an active movement -- more like a few individuals
who promote this idea, hence the many definitions.
Also, I think that it is
entirely a reactionary movement -- therefore doesn't leave much space for
positive change. There are other men's
movement people -- John Stoltenberg, check
out Rebecca Walker's anthology "What Makes A Man" that are legitimately
making change for men.
