toxic maleness, lewd
Now that I'm done dealing with uhaul for the night, I might continue this thought.
"Males simple, Females complex!" is just such a ridiculous idea to me, in bed and out of it. It's like this red meat the patriarchy threw all the genders, so that they'd fight each other over it.
I'm not even on about what gender is "more complex", as though that could ever be decided. I'm more concerned and disappointed with how much it leaches into even great guys, who get taught by the patriarchy that being sexually or romantically complex is for women and gay men. Any complexity has to be eradicated, or at least channeled and controlled.
They get blamed for the resulting rigidity and sensual mutedness. As though it were natural to maleness. It's not.
toxic maleness, lewd, violence, fash
I think whatever you'd want to call this sick system (of which patriarchy is a part), it represses male sexuality and disguises that repression by massively overfeeding the least humane and most simplistic aspects of it--aspects the guy has to remain within, lest he be gay or "a girl".
I feel like, as guys have actually tried to get better, they've run into the lack of expressive outlets for the deep good stuff. It causes so much depression. And then there are the guys who get repressed to the point where their emotions turn fascistic and their thoughts follow, where sex gets replaced with violence.
I feel like we dont talk enough about why people turn to that. Without that conversation, eradicating fascism and control is going to be impossible.
It's not about getting laid. It's about how forced simplicity creates agonized, hateful little soldiers.
If the left is going to encourage an adult conversation about how US foreign policy can often lay the groundwork for what we call terrorism (and I think we should have that conversation), then how can we justify not examining domestic terrorism through similar lenses? Not just economic hopelessness or anger, but the long-practiced self-streamlining and fascistic narcissism/nihilism split that I've seen in so many repressed, frustrated guys.
Back to Joe Average in the bedroom: I get so tired of guys acting like locks that don't want to be locked anymore, but don't know what they'd be if they let go. I just want to tell guys they'll still be *something*, and quite possibly that they'd be surprised at how okay it feels to just...be that beautiful thing down in there.
