Why are women so angry about feminism?
They’re not alone.
The anger is widespread, but the solutions aren’t, according to a new report from the Center for Women & Gender at Boston College.
This isn’t just a reaction to the election of Donald Trump as the next president.
The reason is rooted in the misogyny that has long been at the heart of American politics and society.
This is the problem.
“Women have always been angry about their status in the world, and that anger is also expressed in a variety of ways,” said Christina Sommers, a professor of psychology at Boston University and co-author of the report.
“Men are often more aware of how the world sees them, how they’re viewed, and how they fit into the larger social world.
And they’re also less willing to put up with it.”
The study also found that anger and rage at the injustices of the world were particularly prevalent among men.
“For men, anger is not directed at the world but toward themselves, especially in the form of anger directed at others and at their own shortcomings,” Sommer said.
“The men who are angry are less likely to take action, and when they do, they’re often less successful.”
The researchers found that men are more likely to be angry with women than women are with other men, and men are especially likely to express anger at women who are women.
They are also more likely than women to express rage at men who aren’t male.
Men are more angry when they’re hurt, they say, and they are more prone to use violence.
“There is a very strong tendency to use women as scapegoats, to blame women for the problems that men face, and to blame men for the ills of society,” Somsberg said.
Women also are more willing to use physical violence, but it’s not just women who can be violent, Somming said.
It’s men who may feel like the world is on their side.
“When men are angry, they are also often angry at their perceived inferiority,” she said.
There are many factors that contribute to the prevalence of rage among men, Somsing said, including: They tend to be more likely at work, are more often at home, are less mobile, are in a larger number of relationships, and are less interested in dating.
They’re also more aggressive, more likely and more likely with violence, more susceptible to alcohol and other drugs, and more prone than women of developing eating disorders.
And men are often less likely than other men to seek help for problems like depression, anxiety, anger and depression.
But, Somers said, there’s a big disconnect between men’s anger and the solutions they see.
“Many of these problems are rooted in our society, which has always had a sexist bias,” Sombre said.
Men often feel entitled to certain things, she said, and there is a tendency to blame those things on women.
“If we look at men’s attitudes toward women, it’s clear that they are quite negative toward women,” Somer said, “and it’s also clear that the things that they’re being most upset about are not women at all.”
So what can we do to fix this?
Sombres believes that there are a couple of solutions.
“I believe that men can and should be encouraged to be supportive of women in their own lives,” she explained.
“They can be educated about the role women play in society, and in their relationships.
And it’s time for men to be aware that women are not to blame for the injustacies that are occurring in the country and around the world.”
And there’s another approach that can help men and women both: the use of non-judgmental language.
“A lot of people tend to think that men only have anger and that women only have rage, but that’s not true,” Somedes said.
For men, she continued, anger isn’t an attack.
“It’s more of a response to the injustities of the society.
It means that men need to recognize that women and other women are people too, and if we are to heal from the wounds that we are creating, then we have to recognize women as people, too.”
So here are some other things to consider when addressing anger in your relationships: Don’t use language that is condescending, she warned.
Instead, don’t make a point of blaming your partner or others for the things you’re angry about.
Listen to the other person.
And when you feel anger, listen to yourself.
Sombré said that, in a lot of cases, men feel angry about women who aren and women who’re not, but then they blame them for their own problems, and not their own.
They feel the need to do something about it.
That’s not the same thing as anger
