Or, in other words, they say they want men to be leaders, but actually want them to be chauffeurs.
You know, the guy with the jacket and cap who takes a passenger where she wants to go, and who speaks only when spoken to. A remake of “Driving Miss Daisy”…
The socons and the tradcons try to tell men that being a chauffeur for women is “male leadership” by doing the equivalent pointing out the chauffeur sits in the front seat. It’s a logical fallacy to assume that being in front of something means that you are in charge of it. It pisses off the socons and the tradcons that increasing numbers of men are understanding this.
The comparison with the movie, Driving Miss Daisy, is very apt. Driving Miss Daisy is about a black male chauffeur driving a white woman in the South before the civil rights era. The black male chauffeur had lesser status and less rights than the white woman he drove. This accurately describes the current situation between men and women. Imagine if Miss Daisy told her chauffeur that he had more rights than her because he was in the front seat, and she was in the back seat of the car that he drove. Such an idea would be absurd. That’s what the socons and tradcons are doing.
