S.P.A.Z. On the Fediverse

Tired: "men are too emotional to be leaders." *replicates the sexist assumption that unemotionality is always a superior trait and is inherently associated with dominance/authority.*

Wired: "Men aren't emotional enough to be leaders." *Hot take. Asserts the value of traits devalued by patriarchy. Radically re-envisions what leadership ought to look like. Doesn't throw men who experience positive emotions intensely under the bus for being insufficiently "in-control" (read: masculine).*

@ActNebbish I believe this may be true. Empathy, and noncompetitive cooperation, and communication. Men have historically been very poor at it, and look where it has got us as a species.
