    "Some boys are hypermasculine or pathologically masculine. They are bullies and worse, establishing their male bona fides through destruction, mayhem and preying on the weak and vulnerable. But most boys evince healthy masculinity. They may enjoy mayhem in games and sports, but in life they like to build, not destroy."

    Also, Camille Paglia wrote an interesting piece for TIME defending men.

    Perhaps a new wave of feminism is forming, as Paglia notes:

    "A peevish, grudging rancor against men has been one of the most unpalatable and unjust features of second- and third-wave feminism... without strong men as models to either embrace or (for dissident lesbians) to resist, women will never attain a centered and profound sense of themselves as women."

    I can't remember ever having "masculinity" forced on me.
