First Thoughts on Demasculinization

Demasculinization;

  • is not a word that is currently recognized by my MacBook Pro
  • as a medical term, means the act or process of demasculinization, eg. by removing the testicles of a male animal

Contextualizing Demasculinity;

  • How do men be sensitive and emotional? (Can men cry?)
  • (Why) do. men hide their feelings? 
  • What is demasculinity as a process or a critique of the patriarchal capitalistic system? 
  • Is demaculinity gender equality or just another self-assuming process of gender equality?
