It only "emasculates" the men whose manhood wasn't affixed very well in the first place.

They make things better. When one is equal all are better for it. I'm a man but I'm for women's rights.

I'm shocked. I thought men and women were equal all this time.

A man's natural role is to be the provider and protector; feminism has taken away that role, leaving many men confused between their biology and a feminised society.

It doesn't. If they feel that it does, they must not have been at all secure in their masculinity in the first place.

They no longer necessarily have the role of 'provider'. Women are not completely reliant on them. This may be seen by some men as 'emasculation'. Other men, who are not dependent on gender roles for validation, will not feel emasculated by women providing for themselves... More

Well equality is all about breaking down the differences in gender, which means the point of equality is to get rid of the idea of 'masculine' and 'feminine'. Taking away masculinity from a man is called 'emasculation'. In that sense, i'm not suprised people talk about feminism emasculating men, that is the whole point... More

Probably because feminists thing equality equates to making men inferior.

How could it? Politics don't affect anybody's age, chromosomes, or genital shape.

Only men who feel threatened by women are saying they have been 'emasculated' Most of the men I know are still men- and they support EVERYONE in having rights. I don't see how having equal rights would make anyone lose their identity.

The men who say this are insecure for one reason or another. Most men don't really care what women think as long as they can find at least one fairly attractive one who will be married to them without making their lives miserable. But men who have been routinely rejected by women and/or a pattern of interpersonal... More

Humanism and feminism "emasculates" only those men who derived their "masculinity" from the oppression of others. When they are no longer allowed to freely oppress others, exploiters ALWAYS whine that their "rights" to exploit others have been violated. lol.

Because they feel any gain for a woman is a loss for man. They are blind to the inequality that is so rampant.

Some people only believe one gender can be "superior" so if men aren't the "top dog" then women would be. They don't believe power can be shared among men so how could it be shared among women and men? To them equality really does mean superiority-they only believe in hierarchies and fear anything else and label it... More
