All I seem to see online is men talking about how marvelous men are. [usually adding how bad women are]. It’s actually growing stale as a meme.

I’ll give OP a boost: The awesomeness of men is so overwhelming amazing that it will not only survive the awesomeness of non-men but will thrive.

Now if OP wants to do nxt lvl misogyny get into evo psych. Better yet, please just don’t.

I’m glad you are skeptical of evo psych. That’s a healthy sign.

“What makes men special?” could be a healthier direction but there’s pitfalls in that too, especially if it starts to make comparisons negative to women.

Perhaps you could explore “how to improve the self-esteem of boys” – that is also a potentially healthier direction than you’re heading in, with similar pitfalls to watch for as above.

But as it stands, the OP is getting mocked because all mockers have likely had experience with more toxic forms of the OP statements. Maybe you’re far away from that. If so, now’s a good time to do non-comparing positives.

It means: great qualities can stand as they are. No competition needed.

Ok, I believe you. This reaction you got is strong because it’s a dangerous path. The end results don’t make for a good human being.

Men are highly celebrated, just not by identity as men.

What’s a non-man?

I don’t know. The OP spoke of men not being celebrated. So I guess whoever is not a man is non-men. I just followed the logic. I don’t know who fits in that category but I think it’s probably a large category.

Now, it will say “Great scientists” but usually it’s _still_ about men (white) and separate sections for “Women scientists” and “black scientists”.

The “men scientists” is implied when it says “great scientists”. This, I think, is an ongoing issue.

===

Another example of how men are *implicitly* celebrated in an ongoing basis.

Google. “Great people”. I just did this randomly as a test. Look at “images”.

Notice how many are men. By saying “Great people” it is really saying “Great men”

Of course it *could* mean “more great people are men” but rather I think it’s that “people” is usually used as a synonym for “men”.

Therefore, men get most celebration.

===

You’re absolutely correct and this is one of the reasons I have an issue with the OP.

The visual field you see will most likely be almost entirely men, One after another after another.

That is a good example. Systemic social issues are hard to spot because it’s like trying to tell a fish they’re swimming in water.

As a non-binary person, I would imagine you have experience in noticing the water.
