"I don't want other men to look at me like less of a man," Kroeger said.

His fears are tied to a bigger phenomenon: The gender revolution has been lopsided. Even as American society has seen sweeping transformations — expanding roles for women, surging tolerance for homosexuality — popular ideas about masculinity seem to have stagnated.

    You are debased, degenerate pieces of shit; yes, let's destroy everything good in the world just for the hell of it. The remnants of masculinity are all that stands between you and a return to the dark ages, which we would have *never* escaped without that "traditional masculinity" you nihilistic faggots love to snark about.
