Science fiction does seem like a good route to imagine men’s roles in a future where manual labor is automated. And that Emba/Galloway quote is pretty good. My sense is that boys and young men are told that if they’re traditionally masculine they’re toxic and bad, but if they aren’t masculine then they aren’t worthy of (romantic) love.

Variance is often missing from these conversations. So often we talk about how men dominate the top of society, but overlook that men also make up 2/3 of homeless. Men on average don't have higher status, but higher variance of status.
