On Male Hysteria | Clarissa’s Blog: “I’ve always noted that this traditional play of trying to pin all of society’s emotional distress onto women to make them carry it actually undermines, quite starkly in my view, the fundamental masculine claim to superiority on the basis of possessing courage to embrace the truth. It’s a systematisation of a masculine flight from honesty, and thus from courage. In the end it does the exact opposite of what it has set out to do, which is to firm up and consolidate masculine character. In engineering terms, the patriarchal structure of reality is deeply flawed.”
