There is nothing wrong with a man wanting to be masculine

Being a provider is an evolutionary trait of masculinity. What exactly that means differs from culture to culture, today in western societies, it means having money.

Again, I never said that all men need to do traditionally masculine things to feel manly. You’re not listening to what I’m saying. All I said is that there are some men who do express their masculinity in more traditional ways.

I don’t know why you feel the need to bring up power. It’s completely irrelevant here.

If I want to be the primary breadwinner while my wife is the primary nurturer, there doesn’t have to be a power dynamic. It’s not about exerting control over women.

If my wife makes more money than me and makes the decisions, is she now “holding power” over me? Oppressing me? I don’t think so. And I don’t think it’s wrong to have the relationship go the other way around.

That’s literally all I’m saying. Some guys are old-fashioned like that. But now you’re twisting my words to make it seem like I want to control everyone’s relationships and oppress women. This is exactly why I made the post.
