The problem with the “Real Men Don’t Hit Women” video

“…“Real men don’t hit” discourse is an attempt to shame men into refraining from domestic violence by comparing men that hit TO WOMEN.

In general (sic) perspectives, masculinity is contrasted to femininity. If you are not a man, you are, by default, a woman.

It perpetuates this idea that being a “real man” means fulfilling your role as a protector of women, and if you’re not fulfilling your role as the protector, you must be part of the feminized, non-protector group.”
