Typen und Antisexismus, Teil I

Ich bin wahrscheinlich nicht die_der Einzige, die_der seit einiger Zeit ein bisschen Däumchen dreht, wenn es um antisexistische Praxis von “Männern” geht. Ich beobachte, dass es da im Netz einige gibt, die gern dazu arbeiten wollen, aber nicht wissen wie, Ängste haben oder sich schlicht ohnmächtig und hilflos fühlen. Andere wiederum begeben sich stattdessen in die safen queer_feministischen Bubbles, wo sie mit ein bisschen Antisexismus potentiell Beifall ernten können und das bisschen Politarbeit auch nicht weh tut.
Our work of love should be to reclaim masculinity and not allow it to be held hostage to patriarchal domination. There is a creative, life-sustaining, life-enhancing place for the masculine in a non-dominator culture. And those of us committed to ending patriarchy can touch the hearts of real men where they live, not by demanding that they give up manhood or maleness, but by asking that they allow its meaning to be transformed, that they become disloyal to patriarchal masculinity in order to find a place for the masculine that does not make it synonymous with domination or the will to do violence.
