QotD: “male policing does exactly what it is intended to do”

I don’t like male policing of male behavior being called “patriarchy backfiring” because it’s not. Male policing is not some horrible flaw in the patriarchal system for men that they didn’t see coming, it does not have the opposite effect of what was intended, which is male supremacy, male policing does exactly what it is intended to do. it was essential in creating, and in maintaining, patriarchy. Boys being emotionally hardened and punished for identifying in any way with girls, while they are being harmed, is nothing like how girls are treated, boys are being trained to become uncaring and aggressive towards girls & women, which is not patriarchy backfiring, it’s patriarchy being maintained.
