And what are the candidates’ positions on men’s issues? After all, we’re people, too

Article here. Excerpt:

'What does this mean for American politics? While some politicians use cliched dog-whistles like the Second Amendment or immigrant-bashing to appeal to men, these no more speak to many men’s difficulties than other politicians and public figures who see men’s problems through the simplistic lens of “toxic masculinity.”

So, here’s a dare to presidential and congressional candidates: Tell us your views on the following:

1. Paid parental leave that lets men, as well as women, to take time off to care for a new baby, with employers prohibited from discriminating by gender.

2. Creating a federal Office of Men’s Health to support research and outreach on physical and mental health problems affecting men.

3. Providing a variant of the earned-income tax credit targeted to those who have been out of the workforce for more than one year.

4. Significantly expanding public-private partnerships to provide training and job placement.'
