I saw your note this morning and had time to think about it. Fact is Women have been in charge all along about issues they care about. Woman, I know this is general statement, are relentless when there is an issue that they care about. They have the energy to outlast a man and do get what they want.
That being said, it has been my experience as a man, a man without confidence will end up very alone because confidence is what is expected of us. It's called being a man. That's not going to change anytime soon. This doesn't mean a man needs to be a bully or dictator.
Feminism has changed the power balance between the sexes. But like most movements you can go too far. Fourth Wave Feminism is based on the fundamental flaw that men are supposed to have just because they were born a male. Current belief is that woman are endowed with attributes superior to men. I fear for young men under twenty or so growing up and losing their identity as a person. Young men hear they are brutes and violent by nature. What place do we have for a typical young man in a Feminist culture. In this world of encouraging women, these men are kind of left out thinking they are already advantaged. You can't make up for sins of the past by losing a whole generation of young men.
If you look hard enough women can find flaws in men close to them or men in general. So many of the "sins" of the past are repeated as it they happened Yesterday. Times have changed, positive change has occurred. We need to honor our advancement for women and stop this attack on maleness.
