Yeah, it's really stupid. That's my biggest beef issue feminism. Like I can see the arguments from both sides, I have a sister so I can put myself in her shoes, but they say that men don't have some social standard to live up to and completely ignore that there are any problems that you might have as a dude, and you're just a pathetic loser if you do, or if you break the "masculine role". It's also complete BS that single men have a higher tax rate.

Socialist gender roles for the men, individualist "special snowflake" for the women.

The problem is that post-industrial men never convinced women to be housewives with nothing to do, and post-feminist women will never convince men to be worker-husbands with work to do.

Half the problem was/is each gender speaks to the other as if there is no mental gender difference, women make "declarative sentence" nagging in their articles and men try to reason dispassionately about how women emotionally feel.

I would like to add that it's almost more of a culture/society thing than any sort of hard wired tendencies. We are totally not in a hunter gatherer society where woman have children and men get food. There is no logical reason why a woman can't work instead of the man or even have both work (which I find to be very common in low income families).
