Jerry Seinfeld Criticized Over Masculinity Comments

Article here. Excerpt:

'Jerry Seinfeld is facing backlash online after saying he missed the "dominant masculinity" of 1960s America.

Tuesday, the comedian appeared on the Honestly With Bari Weiss podcast to promote his latest film, Unfrosted. Set in 1960s Michigan, the movie is loosely based on the real-life dispute between Pop-Tarts and Kellogg's to create a new favorite breakfast food.

Weiss felt Unfrosted represented a "sense of one conversation, a common culture." Seinfeld—who directed and starred in the film—agreed.

"That's part of what makes that moment attractive looking back," the 70-year-old said. He added: "I always wanted to be a real man. I never made it, [but] in that era, it was JFK. It was Muhammad Ali. It was Sean Connery, Howard Cosell. You can go all the way down there. That's a real man."

"I miss a dominant masculinity," Seinfeld added. "Yeah, I get the toxic thing. But still, I like a real man."'
