Yes, women's equality will come at the expense of some men — that's the point

Article here. Excerpt:

'A new report by the Pew Research Center shows that one in four American men believe increased equality for women has come at their expense. My initial reaction to these survey results is frustration and a compulsive urge to convince these men that gender equality is not a zero-sum game. But I can't. Because the truth is that gender equality does hurt white, cisgender-men in some ways. The real question is: so what?

From the economy to public health, we all stand to gain when women win. And while wins for women means that mostly white, cis-men will lose more often, this isn't an injustice — it's what justice actually looks like. It might be difficult to discern at first because for white, cis-men in America, the loss of privilege will hurt. But don't mistake a loss of privilege for unfairness. Men aren't being punished for women's equality — they're just no longer benefiting as much from the lack thereof.'
