Male power is a paradox, says Michael Kaufman. Society is male-dominated, yet despite their advantages men still die younger than women, are more likely to commit suicide, to be in prison, and to be addicted to drugs.Masculinity is a millennia-year-old idea that no longer functions well in the modern world. Advice like "be a man" backfires on men the most, for all the reasons above.There is a growing movement that blames women for the so-called attack on masculinity, but Kaufman doesn't buy it. ...
