In its worst forms this imbalance has given us social disfunctions like the uncritical cheerleading for false rape claims (as in the case of the Rutgers lacrosse players and others), the elimination of due process protections for the accused in campus rape tribunals, and numerous other forms of deleterious inter-gender conflict. In such a climate, what is a man to do? Does he go along with the groupthink so as to get along with the women in his home, school, and workplace . . . keep silent when the crude criticisms of men rankle his sense of justice . . . apologize for the gender he was born to and try to find his “feminine side?” Or does he take pride in his masculinity as a positive force, work to achieve its best expression, and stand up for himself and other men when battered by the slanders and invented statistics that too often characterize the gender wars? These are among the issues that author Frantzen touches on in this volume .
I see this as a book mainly for younger men. Others, who have long been at peace with their maleness and who are untroubled by these issues in their own lives, may deplore the injustices, accusations, and resentments of the current climate, but have probably learned to tune out much ugly social static. For a younger man who is regularly faced with potential clashes in the classroom, workplace, or dating scene, and who wants to build an honorable, self-confident life that includes respectful and companionable relationships with women, Frantzen provides a way forward. Calm and thoughtful, never angry, Modern Masculinity offers factual revelations, stimulating insights, and a path to personal fulfillment.
