Masculinism or masculism is a synonym of androcentrism and an antonym of gynocentrism. It is the stance that society should order itself around male gender traits (such as: stoicism, honesty, chivalry, strength, courage, violence, and assertiveness). It is not an antonym of feminism like MRA is. Feminism sees itself as a political movement. Whereas masculinism in the West today is a philosophy instead of a singular political movement and is confined to lower level societal institutions (such as: war, sport, gangs, gamergate, kekistan, the proud boys etc). Notable masculinists include Gavin McInnes.
Masculinism vs. MRA[edit | edit source]
Masculinism vs. male supremacy[edit | edit source]
Male supremacists hold that men are naturally superior to women in the morality of their natural behaviour, contemporary behaviour and/or societal worth. Therefore masculinism is prescriptive whereas male supremacy is an attempt at being descriptive.
