Men Become Monsters in ‘Not All Men’ Episode of ‘The Twilight Zone’

Article here. Excerpt:

'The May 9 episode starts with Annie (Taissa Farmiga) going on a date with co-worker Dylan (Luke Kirby) when a meteor shower falls over their town with several meteorites landing around it. After the shower ends, Dylan starts acting more erratic and vicious towards Annie, bruising her arm and yelling at her, and she leaves.
The message is painfully obvious that this is supposed to be the world under the threat of “male entitlement,” toxic masculinity, and the patriarchy. The site Vulture even states that the episode “has to go to such extremes to push the episode into the realm of science fiction” since this “threat” is so real. How perverted must a liberal’s life be if murderous men are part of the norm.

Make no mistake, it emphasizes straight men as the villains in this world. Every male character except for Martha’s gay teenaged son Cole (Percy Hynes White) is either a threat or just a jerk. Even before the shower, men “mansplained” and ignored women’s feelings. Annie even dramatically repeats twice that “it’s only the men” that have become monstrous, not the women.'

Just 99.999% of us are evil horrid beasts. Either we act that way or just need the right opportunity to do so.
