Author Liz Plank, "For the Love of Men-- A new vision for Mindful Masculinity" on AM Joe

(she was on Ari Melber yesterday) discussing a range of issues, but especially the rise of toxic masculinity...

Is there anything that is not obviously true in what she says/has written, yet can anyone imagine how that will be perceived by the 40% of Fox-addicted? I hate to say it, but it is impossible for me to listen to her without thinking about how much hateful reaction she will be likely to get from conservatives-- especially, but not limited to conservative men. Not that there is anything really controversial or less than obvious in her analysis of men in today's society and the factors that feed into some of the worst we have seen, including the mass shooters-- just that she feeds into conservative paranoia about how the "left" views men and their roles in society. As much as I hate to admit it-- as a feminist-- but I somewhat wish she'd written this book with a male co-author as perhaps the message would be a tad better received by those who really need to hear it.

Perhaps they will all ignore it, as I see no chance of her appearing on Fox. Sadly, they are specifically the ones who NEED to hear it.
