MEN: Are Even the Good Ones Bad?

In Jack Myers prescient 2016 book, The Future of Men: Men on Trial, he predicted the current wave of exposure of male harassment, indecency and shame. He also uncovered the subtle and less exposed ways men suffer from the addiction of the negative patriarchy, passed down from generation to generation. He explained how this addiction has manifest itself through destructive relationships, abuse of power, deteriorating educational pursuit, political backlash and the tearing away at the very fabric of society.

Why Support The Future of Men Movement

Why Support The Future of Men Movement The future roles of men and women in society, culture, and business will take decades to evolve, but the future has already been ordained.

The Medium Is The Man: How TV Impacts Men’s Self Image Map out a broad timeline of the American sitcom dad and you go from Ozzie Nelson to Peter Griffin of Family Guy. At a glance, that looks like a fall from grace. Comparing the image of a real man through pop culture is the surest way to track where we’ve been, where we are today, and where we are going. Once the proud patriarch, the King of the castle, the tent pole that sustained the entire family unit, the modern TV dad is more frequently a punching bag. Just […]

The Idiot Man in Advertising

The Idiot Man in Advertising For examples of the “men as idiots” commercial genre, simply turn to your TV and watch the vast majority of commercials for household products, over-the-counter analgesics and health aids, automobiles, financial services, and a host of other product categories. Men are often characterized as less-than-capable idiots who can’t possibly measure up to a female’s ability to do even the simplest task. The list of dumb men in advertising is lengthy and includes companies that market everything from throat drops to credit cards. Some groups are speaking out against the collective advertising world’s treatment of men. […]
