THE PRISON OF BLACK PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY

Posted on May 8, 2011

As a black man living in the United States, I know all too well the prison that Black Patriarchal Masculinity can be. Growing up the cell that I was placed in was small and rigid, a place for conformity rather than creativity. My masculinity was policed at almost every turn. My wrists were too limp […]

SHEDDING PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY

Posted on December 30, 2010

There’s masculinity, and then there’s patriarchal masculinity. In my opinion, the former views femininity as complementary to it, while the latter views femininity as something that is degrading. In a patriarchal society like the United States, boys are raised to see femininity in themselves as something that must be shunned, despised, and loathed. The patriarchal […]

CHRIS BROWN, RAZ B, AND PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY

Posted on December 30, 2010

I’m sure everyone is looking for clever analysis of the “Chris Brown & Raz B Presents: Patriarchal Masculinity and Homophobia,” but I honestly having nothing. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for men to resort to patriarchal masculinity, homophobia, effemiphobia, and misogyny when arguing with each other. I tried my best to translate the tweets transpiring […]

THE CONSEQUENCES OF PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY!

Posted on August 3, 2010

The headline read like all chilling headlines usually read, “Long Island Man Kills Baby Boy for Acting Like a Little Girl” but this time I wasn’t surprised. You see over the months as I have educated myself about the role that patriarchal masculinity plays in our society, I have become less and less surprised by […]

VH1’S “DAD CAMP” CHALLENGES PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY!

Posted on June 21, 2010

If you aren’t watching VH1’s new show “Dad Camp” I highly recommend tuning in. So often in our society when it comes to pregnancy and child rearing only the stories of young women are told. Shows like MTV’s Teen Mom and other shows have always focused on the young woman, and never demanded or showcased […]

WHEN I SAY “PERVERTED PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY”

Posted on June 10, 2010

A lot of people get bent out of shape when I challenge perverted patriarchal masculinity. They in their own ignorance take this to mean that I am against masculinity and that I am against manhood. Some of the most ardent of this crowd will even go so far as to label me a misadrist. So […]

PRINCE! THE SWORN ENEMY OF PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY!

Posted on June 8, 2010

“Patriarchal boys, like their adult counterparts know the rules: they know they must not express feeling with the exception of anger, that they must not do anything considered feminine or womanly.” Prince has never subscribed to that notion and that’s why I love him. He is a walking, talking, living, breathing, rejection and repudiation of […]

CHRIS BROWN & THE PITFALLS OF PATRIARCHAL MASCULINITY!

Posted on June 8, 2010

Chris Brown is a black man and like many black men before him he pledged his allegiance to the system of patriarchy. You see patriarchy with its reliance on the will to dominate others, its promotion of the will to do violence no matter how violating, and its love affair with rage as the only […]

CONDUCTING A SURVEY ON MASCULINITY/FEMININITY!

Posted on April 4, 2010

As a man I hear so much about what it means to be so called masculine or so called feminine. As a gay man this is heightened to even crazier levels. Therefore I want to conduct a survey to get a better understanding of what my peers think it means to be so called masculine […]

SO CALLED MASCULINITY THE GAY COMMUNITIES PAPER BAG TEST!

Posted on March 11, 2010

The “brown paper bag test” was a ritual once practiced by certain African-American and Creole fraternities and sororities who discriminated against people who were “too dark.” That is, these groups would not let anyone into the sorority or fraternity whose skin tone was darker than a paper lunch bag, in order to maintain a perception […]
