The global economic crisis is showing the cracks in the surface of how patriarchy is lived in everyday lives; is now not the right time to refocus the discussion? Can we reclaim ‘patriarchy’ from the analysis of all men as patriarchs? How do we understand masculinities in a more political way?

(This post is cross-posted at Crikey.) There’s an article by Helen Dow currently on News.com.au (originally in Queensland’s Sunday Mail) reporting on some findings from social research consultancy McCrindle Research in Sydney: namely, that Generation Y are losing basic skills of self-care and self-sufficiency. Here are some of the stats from the story: Only 51 per cent of survey respondents aged under 30 can cook a roast, compared with 82 per cent of baby boomers.Only 20 per cent of young respondents can bake lamingtons; 45 per cent of respondents aged over 30 can.Only 23 per cent of young respondents can grow a plant from a cutting; 78 per cent of older respondents can.And only 40 per cent of respondents under 30 can drive manual cars, compared to 71 per cent of older respondents. Notice that I have deliberately elided the issue of whether the respondents were male or female, and I have not generalised out from the survey sample to the wider Australian population.

Guest Post by Dana Hunter Men, even good men, believe women lie about rape. There’s this myth that runs amok saying that some enormous proportion of rape accusations are just women lying to get attention, or revenge, or to hide their summer fling from mommy and daddy.

The XX Factor The XX Factor Thanks to the BuzzFeed quiz, we now all know which city we should live in (Paris), what kind of sandwich we are (grilled cheese), and which Twin Peaks character we are (Agent Dale Cooper). BuzzFeed quizzes exploit our urge to belong, to categorize ourselves into an identifiable group that we are instantly a part of. (Oh, you’re a Miranda? Me too!) Which is why the latest BuzzFeed quiz, “How Metal Is Your Period?”

The Happy Feminist: FEMINISM 101 -- WHAT IS FEMINISM? Feminism is not a monolith, nor is it a dogma. The only thing you have to believe in order to call yourself a feminist is that ensuring women's freedom and equality of opportunity in all spheres of life is a crucial priority. That's it. Feminists all work from that basic axiom, but aside from that we are an incredibly diverse group. We are diverse in five ways: 1) We come from every conceivable background and life experience.

Feminist Lexicon: “Angel in the House” A concept of desirable femininity (from Coventry Patmore's nineteenth century poem) critiqued by Virginia Woolf who argued for the necessity of killing this internalised aspect of the feminine for women to be fully effective. She argued further in Three Guineas that it was also necessary to kill 'the lady'—although even then 'the woman still remained'. Feminist Lexicon
