I noticed that Kimmel's article seemed to focus more on the ways men can develop and have developed in society for the better. I read that men basically need feminism to develop correctly. I truly believe this. Men need feminism to understand the day to day struggles of women and to do their part to stop the madness.
"Therapists advise anguished parents about boys' fragility...Boys, we read, are depressed, suicidal, emotionally shut down."
This quote directly goes with the film because of how boys act. When undeveloped, boys tend to act like a total nutcase. I mean lets be honest, when a boy is not brought up on good, solid morals, does he usually turn out okay? The answer is no.
"To hear these critics tell it, we're no longer allowing boys to be boys. We've misunderstood boy biology, and cultural meddling--especially by misinformed women--won't change a thing."
This goes with the film because the film depicts bad boys. Boys that are misunderstood. Boys that misunderstand life; that were taught the wrong way. And truly they aren't allowed to be real boys because they don't know how to be.
"Feminism encourages men--and their sons--to be more emotionally open and expressive, to develop empathic skills, and to channel emotional outbursts away from violence."
This goes with the film because it basically a guideline to become a better man. If the boys in the film were taught that feminism causes a man to be less violence and more open with their emotions, they would not have done the things they did.
I think that this movie really connects to this website called Worldstarhiphop.com. This website basically features fights (mostly men). I will post the website showing you what its about; however, view at your own risk...
Anyway, I feel that this connects to the movie because the guys fighting are fight to see who is alpha. They can get seriously violent at times too. I feel like this is blinding the younger men of today because they see these videos and they think that in order to be a alpha male, one would need to destroy another person. This is not right. It ruining the minds of young men. Is that what they are going to think manhood is? I really hope not.
Hopefully one day the morals of men will change. What are your taught on this subject matter? Do you think that if men were brought up through feminism that they would be a more caring, loving, and open man?
