This song, Bait a Hook by Justin Moore, came out on the radio approximately a year ago, and ever since the first time I heard it, I’ve been completely outraged by it. The entire meaning behind the song is that unless a man is a rugged fisher, hunter, outdoorsman, macho, tough guy, he is unworthy of love and relationships. This is just one example of how the patriarchal society is not just damaging to women, and the list does not end there. Women are not the only ones who suffer and are victims of this. Justin Moore, I lost a lot of respect for you since I heard this song.
And now, to introduce what’s happening next!
Many people judge feminists because they claim that the feminists are ignoring the men’s issues and are just trying to make it all about women. While this is far from the truth, there’s no way better to prove this than to show it. So I’m starting a new series of posts. I’m not saying how long this will run for, but for the next period of time, I’m going to be covering the issues that men deal with in a patriarchal society and how feminism is for all gender equality, and not making women superior.
